You know Hex Studios as the makers and distributors of low-budget indie horror, but they’ve expanded recently into publishing with a new division of their company called Hex Arcana. The publisher marked its first release last year with “The Book of Beastly Creatures,” a short story anthology. But they’d like to expand.
Social distancing and quarantining makes horror films as hard to shoot as everything else, but the creative minds at Hex Studios have come up with a clever solution. They’re holding an open contest for DIY horror shorts made by those confined to their homes, about one minute in length.
Hex Studios, publishers and promoters of indie horror, have launched their own YouTube channel. You might be wondering why they didn’t do that years ago — well, they did, but we’re talking about Channel Hex, a spinoff of their regular channel that will spotlight filmmakers in the indie horror scene.
Hex Studios has announced they will be distributing Here Comes Hell, a new dark horror-comedy film, starting next month.
Hex Studios has produced anthologies like For We Are Many, and comedic web series like Netflix And Kill. But their main claim to fame is their horror character Owlman, who has starred in two of their movies — Lord of Tears and The Black Gloves — and also received some merchandising.
Hex Studios is finishing up its latest horror anthology movie, For We Are Many. This one’s comprised of 13 different shorts, each running around the theme of demons. A wide variety of evil fanged creatures from mythologies all over the world are represented in the dozen-plus-one ghoulish tales.
Award-winning filmmaker Sam Ashurst recently released his latest arthouse film, Frankenstein’s Creature, digitally. Now it’s landed a deal for a physical edition, but a limited one.
Is it legal to use a corporation’s name as the title for your little indie production? We don’t imagine so, which is why the official title for this webseries is actually “NETFL!X AND KILL” with a barely noticeable exclamation mark in place of the letter “I”. That probably won’t be enough to satisfy Netflix’s lawyers. (Note that we are calling the show “Netflix And Kill” without the exclamation because this is what people will be typing in search engines when they look for info about it. We’re savvy like that.)
Because of your generous support and zest for Owlman plushies, Hex Studios will be able to put their new horror flick into production soon. Automata is now the most funded narrative film in the UK, but it’s still not too late to contribute.
