'Possessed Soul' Releases Early Teaser and Poster

Experience Media Studios presents the first teaser poster and storyboard images for its upcoming feature length movie shot entirely using 3DPOV® technology. This experience is unlike any other movie horror fans will have seen, telling the story through the eyes of the main character – in 3D. The audience will experience the sights and sounds exactly as the main character would, taking the concepts of “found footage” first-person perspective and 3D innovation to an entirely new level.

Possessed Soul begins filming August 2013 and uses Experience Media Studios’ patent-pending 3DPOV® technology. Possessed Soul will change how all audiences look at films in the future, not only horror fans. The experience is more intimate, more personal, and more frightening. 3DPOV delivers an experience that goes far beyond just watching.

The project is partially financed through pre-sales using the Indiegogo crowdfunding platform. The campaign currently running on IndieGoGo gives the horror audience the opportunity to fund a portion of the film by contributing as low as $10. In exchange, they receive a Special Edition Unlimited VOD of Possessed Soul, including bonus features unavailable in the standard edition, and at nearly 40% less than it will cost to purchase when released. Many more perks are available, even giving fans an opportunity for an on-location set visit during filming and a role as a extra in the film.
Experience Media Studios’ 3DPOV® system enables the capture of a three-dimensional visual and auditory experience from the first-person perspective. 3DPOV® media delivers a higher level of sensory engagement than virtual reality that replicates a true-to-life binocular and peripheral visual field and a stereophonic auditory experience.

Possessed Soul Synopsis:
Two teenage girls are terrorized and slaughtered in the dark woods by a knife-wielding murderer. Russ Anderson, a disturbed and menacing teenage boy, awakes in a rage from his dream. Through his eyes, the audience experiences the horror of Possessed Soul. As they torment and abuse other students and teachers at their school, Russ leads his group of sinister and unstable friends into the perverse underworld of the occult. The group focuses their threats and intimidation on another outcast, Jake, stalking him mercilessly after school. In their relentless pursuit to have their desires fulfilled through Satanic worship, Russ and his friends engage in a series of increasingly maniacal rituals through a haze of drugs and alcohol. The further they delve into the occult, the more their grip on reality is distorted, revealing the true horror among them and the manipulative demonic terror they have unleashed.

Plant vs Zombies 2 Coming Out

If you're a fan of Plants vs Zombies, and who isn't, Popcap will soon be releasing the sequel, in which Crazy Dave accidentally goes back to ancient Egypt.

There are a couple of twists in the new game. The zombies drop plant food pellets which you can use to temporally power up your plants. Coins you earn can be used to allow you to actually pinch the heads off of the zombies. Sounds like a lot of fun. Only problem is, the game will be released late this summer.

Until then, we'll have to be content with killing zombies the old fashioned way.
