Firstly let us wish you all a splendidly spooky Halloween, and we trust you’re all going to indulge in some, tricks, treats and no doubt some great horror films… Hell, as you’re here why not dig in to some of the Bloody Cuts shorts right now… Well after you read this that is, this is way more important…

Anyway, on this annual celebration of all things creepy we’re exceptionally pleased to bring you some exciting news…

We’ve crawled from our crypts here at BC Towers to drop this scary scoop of horror goodness and with darkly effervescent frenzy we are stoked to announce…

Bloody Cuts is BACK baby, and we’d like to share with you the title and release schedule for our new tale of terror.

This Christmas Expect Deathly Presents from Bloody Cuts

Yup, That’s right. This year Christmas is getting the Bloody Cuts treatment, and whilst we don’t want to give anything away, you can expect a distinctly festive flavour to the frolicking fear of our next adventure in HORROR!.

We’ve teamed up with the ever-awesome Røde Microphones to bring you a BRAND NEW horror short, and an accompanying ‘Making-Of documentary’. Røde have been super generous, so special thanks go to the team and Scott Emerton who joins ‘Team BC’ as executive producer.

So strap in and brace yourself for ‘Deathly Presents’ arrival sometime in the last couple of weeks of December.

We definitely intend on beating Santa down the Chimney, so mark this up as an early treat before the big man starts scraping his gut on the brickwork.

Talking of Christmas treats…

Tune in next week for some other exciting news. It’s Dark.
