We are proud to bring you this piece of news that hits close to home for us here at Dead Entertainment. Cadaver Hour Film's Trepan has made its public debut on World of Death, a compilation series of short horror films from all around the world. The guys behind this short film just happen to be a part of and associated with Dead Entertainment, Chris Wendland and Ray Morse, who are creating our exclusive Slash the Halls short film for our December holiday event. You will also find these two here on the site for our upcoming podcasts and other content. For these two to have their work on display as part of this series is a big deal to us and we're proud to share this with our readers.

Trepan was released in October 2011 as an official entry in The ABC’s of Death: The 26th Director contest and received over 120,000 views on YouTube. In early 2014, the directors signed on to be a part of World of Death, which made its debut in August of last year after being picked up for distribution by Bloody Disgusting. Each episode showcases another couple of horror shorts and this week's happened to mark the debut of Trepan. Bloody Disgusting's official release sums it up well:

Next we look at “Trepan” by Chris Wendland and Raymond Morse. In our second dark parable, we find ourselves following along an unknown figure, wondering what will happen next. She is distressed, but where is here assailant? As she runs past the latest victims, we know things are just getting darker. The darkness of this story is paralleled by gruesome effects likened to a cavalcade of horrors straight out of Savini’s workshop. What makes this take particularly terrifying is the way we simply don’t know what is happening until it is too late. But then again kiddies, that is always how it happens isn’t it?

Check out the episode above and join us in celebrating this milestone for our friends and partners, Chris Wendland and Ray Morse. Join us later this month for the premiere of their next short, Slash the Halls, exclusively on Dead Entertainment.
