Fangoria.com not only gives "KILD TV" a severed leg up on many of its contemporaries" (3 Skulls out of 4) but, also calls it "one of the most anticipated horror offerings of 2016." Well, any anticipation is now officially over because this critically acclaimed bloody shocker is now available on Video-On-Demand with a national VOD release. This, coming on the heels of getting a standing-o and winning Best Picture at the recent Legless Corpse Film Festival where it was touted as "Bloody, Campy...and Fun!!"
With the Special Edition Blu Ray and DVD almost sold out, we can not hold back this award winning film from hitting every major viewing platform, presented in pristine HD quality and 5.1. surround sound. The folks at iHorror.com call the film "A fun B-Movie throwback with a Burton-esque feel." And from Hellnotes.com: "The film has it all: dark humor, grisly gore, and even an intriguing thriller of a mystery." The Festival Tour continues unabated with upcoming screenings set for the Crimson Screen, Crypticon Seattle and Horror Hotel Film Festivals (where it has already been named an Award Winning film). Along the way, at prior fests, the film has already pulled in two Best Picture nods, Best Actor and Best Effects. According to Horror Hound Magazine, "KILD TV is exactly what the great majority of horror fans want in a horror film … interesting characters, a mysterious killer, just the right amount of gore, suspense, and a little sex appeal "
Here's the synopsis: "A TV journalist cracks a series of unsolved killings and prepares an expose for broadcast, all the while keeping secret that the twisted killer works at his own station. As he covertly prepares, a skeleton crew begins to air their live, late-night horror show, featuring a ghoulish host. Unbeknownst to all, one crew member has already been viciously murdered and her body hidden. A violent thunderstorm rolls in as two more of the crew and the journalist disappear. The TV show continues until the mutilated body of one of the missing is discovered. The crew frantically tries to flee the building, only to find all lines of escape and communication sabotaged. Lightning strikes, leaving only emergency power, and one hope for rescue: broadcast or die ! They plea for help on the air but the plan fails when viewers believe it’s just a hoax. More slain bodies turn up and the pressure mounts to find the killer before another is found slaughtered. As the mystery unravels, it becomes clear that the killer is one of them. Friends and colleagues begin distrusting each other, and, with every step inching closer to discovering who it is, another body falls."

KILD TV is B-Movie Throwback fun
BY JONATHAN CORREIA ON MARCH 11, 2016
MOVIE REVIEWS, NEWS
Late night TV hosts were a huge part of the horror experience for many people growing up. It seemed that every local channel had an over-the-top host who would introduce horror, cult, and B-Movies.
A lot of these movies were cheesier than the host’s own skits but the combination was always fun. KILD TV taps into this world of cable horror double features and delivers a fun mystery filled with blood, guts, and boobs. KILD TV is a fun B-Movie throwback with a Tim Burton-esque feel.
The crew of a local horror movie showcase is used to broadcasting creepy stories of heinous killers, but tonight they are the story, trapped with a real killer inside the studio.
Shot in Texas and produced by Michael Muscal (Bride of Re-Animator), KILD TV does not shy away from its B-Movie inspirations.
All of this is delivered in a whimsical tone that reflects some of Tim Burton’s early works. The filmmakers and cast have a lot of fun with the film and it’s hard not to do yourself while watching it.
No one has more fun in the film than D.C. Douglas (Sharknado 2, Mass Effect 3, Resident Evil) as the late night host caught in the middle of a murder spree. No matter what camera he is in front of, either inside or outside the movie, he revels in the role, stealing every scene. His interaction with a cow’s head is hilarious, disgusting, and fun to watch.
In the studio, the would-be victims have to continuously broadcast their live segments in-between the broadcast of the feature film. The focus is shifted here to a handful of people outside the studio watching the live program.
Here we meet a couple enjoying the night’s presentation at home and a cop watching from his squad car. These are nice breaks once the killings start, and the crew is caught with a limited amount of time to show they are in real trouble.
These breaks lead to some of the best moments in KILD TV. The crew/would-be victims try to prove to those on the outside that they are not acting, and what is happening is real. We see the couple and the officer struggle with the idea that they might be witnessing is a real homicide.
KILD TV is a fun movie. Plain and simple. It knows what it audience wants and it delivers. Along the way it treats us to a great murder mystery, tricking us every bit of the way.
Fans of Hershel Gordon Lewis will love this blood soaked murder mystery. The film is unapologetically over-the-top in nature, with nudity, and volumes of blood. It is a great time!

KILD TV Premiering in Cincinnati
KILD TV Premiering in Cincinnati Next Month
Posted on February 19, 2016 by David Gelmini
If you happen to be in Cincinnati next month, then be sure to attend the premiere of the multiple award-nominated feature KILD TV, produced by VFX wizard Michael Muscal and directed by William Collins. Full details can be found below.
From the Press Release:
Mystery, suspense, and blood-soaked mayhem all take center stage when KILD TV has its world premiere screening at the HorrorHound Weekend and Film Fest, March 18-20 in Cincinnati, Ohio. And the film has been nominated for Best Picture, Best Actor (D.C. Douglas), and Best Actress (Astrea Campbell-Cobb).
This taut thriller takes place at a remote TV station where crew members, doing the late night horror telecast, are violently disposed, one by one, by a psychopath out to erase all clues to his (or her?) identity. To survive, they must broadcast for help or die!
Producer Michael Muscal (ReAnimator, Ed Gein, Bride of Chucky) is quick to point out that genre fans won’t be disappointed: “The body count is quite high.” Not bad coming from the guy who brought you serial killer classics Ted Bundy and The Hillside Strangler.
Director William Collins aptly puts it this way: “It’s Dario Argento meets Tim Burton,” while HorrorHound Magazine says, “KILD TV is exactly what the great majority of horror fans want in a horror film… interesting characters, a mysterious killer, just the right amount of gore, suspense, and a little sex appeal.”
Douglas plays the offbeat Dr. Ultim Perseco, host of the midnight hour fright flick, and is joined by a sensational ensemble cast including the up-and-coming Ms. Cobb, Heather Williams, Dan Braverman, and Grace Johnston. And to accomplish the hardcore ghoulish rampage, the producers brought in Emmy-nominated Hawgfly Productions (Temple Grandin, Grindhouse and Machete) to do the special makeup effects.
In concert with the HorrorHound event, a Special Collector’s Edition of KILD TV will be released nationally on DVD and Blu-ray. Don’t miss out!

We first told you here about the on-air-murder movie KILD TV, and now we’ve got some more exclusive photos to share, plus a trailer.
Shot in Texas, KILD TV was directed by William Collins from a Channing Whitaker script, with Mike Muscal producing. D.C. Douglas, Astrea Campbell-Cobb, Dan Braverman, Jared Doreck, Heather Williams, Aleeah Rogers and Grace Johnston, with makeup FX by Hawgfly Productions. We also have a longer synopsis:
“A determined TV journalist cracks a series of unsolved killings and prepares an exposé for broadcast, all the while keeping secret that the twisted killer works at his own station. As he covertly prepares, a skeleton crew begins to air their live, late-night horror show, featuring a ghoulish host named Dr. Perseco. Unbeknownst to all, one crewmember has already been viciously murdered and her body hidden. A violent thunderstorm rolls in as two more of the crew and the journalist disappear.
“The TV show continues until the mutilated body of one of the missing is discovered. The crew frantically tries to flee the building, only to find all lines of escape and communication sabotaged. They are trapped inside with the killer somewhere in the station! Lightning strikes, leaving only emergency power and one hope for rescue; they must broadcast or die. They plead for help on the air, but the plan fails when viewers believe it’s just a hoax. No help is coming, more brutally slain bodies turn up and the pressure mounts to identify the killer before another is found slaughtered. As the mystery unravels, it becomes clear that the killer is among them. Friends and colleagues begin distrusting each other, and with every step inching closer to discovering the killer, another body falls.”
