Availability: Ready to download

“Five members who could not be tamed, sold their souls for fortune and fame, formed their spell circle in Satan’s name, in the pit of Hell they burn by flame.” BASED ON TRUE EVENTS. The story about the making of a movie about an urban legend, that is in turn becoming an urban legend. A film believed to be cursed. The scariest movie you’ll never see. This is the dark adventure “Five members who could not be tamed, sold their souls for fortune and fame, formed their spell circle in Satan’s name, in the pit of Hell they burn by flame.” BASED ON TRUE EVENTS. The story about the making of a movie about an urban legend, that is in turn becoming an urban legend. A film believed to be cursed. The scariest movie you’ll never see. This is the dark adventure of guerrilla filmmaker J.D. Loveless and his starlet Charlotte Rae, two people plagued by disturbing occurrences while making a micro-budget horror movie in the Arrowhead mountains based on the local urban legend of Mathaluh, a small town seventies rock band believed to have released a bootleg record laced with backwards Satanic lyrics. It was rumored that the bandmates had sacrificed a young runaway girl to cement their pact with the Devil, all so they could achieve fortune and fame. But before that could happen, all the band members died in a mysterious blaze. Instead of fame, they got infamy. Legend has it, if you found a copy of this lost record and played it backwards, you would resurrect the damned soul of Jeremy Jared, lead singer of Mathaluh, whose voice they say resonates throughout the bowels of the burning kingdom itself. Jeremy Jared, the front man eternal. The demon Jeremy. An entity glimpsed only in shadows, mirrors, fog, or nightmares. But once you resurrect him, there’s Hell to pay. Join this midnight ride, a ride that includes: A film crew determined to make a monster movie at any cost, who just didn’t know what they were getting into. “Strawberry Lodge,” the terrifyingly scary mansion used as the main location for the movie. Death threats and bizarre happenstances. Feral teenagers immersed in Satanic cults who use the backwoods for their sex and rock fueled Black Masses. Discover the truth behind the making of a movie that nobody wants to see released, including the controversial underground filmmaker himself. Was it all in their heads? Were Satanic forces truly at work? You decide. With foreword and prologue by occult and conspiracy rock shock reporter Beauregard Freidkin, a journalist self-described as equal parts Fox Mulder and Hunter S. Thompson. Written by former investigative journalist and screenwriter Carlton Kenneth Holder, author and creator of the upcoming Cold War science fiction book series “Spook: Confessions of a Psychic Spy.”

    The Black Album is terrific mix of Satanic rock bands, urban legends and indie horror film wrapped into one. We're introduced to the story by Beauregard, a college radio show host who roams the world seeking the stories of curses, cryptids, urban legends and the like. He meets up with J.D. Loveless, and indie filmmaker who made a "cursed film" and still lives his life in fear because of it. The story then ensues telling all that happened in leading up to the making thereof that film. Hoping for The Black Album is terrific mix of Satanic rock bands, urban legends and indie horror film wrapped into one. We're introduced to the story by Beauregard, a college radio show host who roams the world seeking the stories of curses, cryptids, urban legends and the like. He meets up with J.D. Loveless, and indie filmmaker who made a "cursed film" and still lives his life in fear because of it. The story then ensues telling all that happened in leading up to the making thereof that film. Hoping for inspiration, Loveless rents a cabin up in the Cali Arrowhead mountains with plans on penning a script. His movie will be based on the urban legend of Mathaluh, a band that was rumored to have been into satanism, back-masking the music and was accused of killing a young girl in a satanic ritual before dying in a plane crash. Loveless has found the perfect town and people to make his film come to life. But the more they film, the more they use artifacts from the actual band, such as their homemade Ouija board and playing their record backwards, the more strange happening occur to the those involved in the project. Blood flows and people don't act like they should. A sense of dread overtakes the whole film making process. And rumors of satanists living in the woods seem all too real when threatening phone calls and violent acts befall the film makers. Is this Loveless' biggest dream or nightmare come true? The writing was pretty solid and make for compelling reading. The way the movie is described actually sounded like it would be great to see for real. The only real issue I had was, the book started off feeling like a reasonable-level of horror movie - the kind a legit indie or even lower budget major movie studio would produce. But once the filming itself was about to begin, some story elements went too over-the-top or just felt sleazy, more like what you would see from a low-budget straight-to-video release. But it really did feel like the story of an urban legend about a film about an urban legend and played out like a decent horror film.

    Combining a mix of light horror with pop culture references, The Black Album manages to entertain without being overwhelming. The characters are interesting and likeable, and the story is easy to read and keeps up the action. I'd certainly recommend it to any fans of horror or of the "cursed media" sub-genre.
