FANGORIA PRESENTS is our brand new DVD/Video-on-Demand line, a team-up with Brainstorm Media (headed up by THE AMERICAN SCREAM producer Meyer Shwarzstein) that will unleash five of the coolest little tales of terror from around the world. After managing the previous FANGORIA FrightFest VOD/DVD label, FANGORIA’s Editor Emeritus and longstanding curator Tony Timpone is again onboard, supplementing the work of the killer Brainstorm Media bullpen.
And while everyone can find them on Demand, our readers with Comcast will note a very special place carved out for them. That is, a folder called ‘FANGORIA’, that will feature both our current FANGORIA PRESENTS films and a monthly, themed selection of studio repertory titles bearing the moniker FANGORIA’S VIDEOCRYPT, curated by esteemed programmer and producer Zack Carlson.
Stay tuned to our newsfeed for updates about each month’s VIDEOCRYPT theme and programming!
Convicted ‘Headhunter’ serial killer and former corporate manager, Thomas Reddmann (Redd), is demented from various experimental procedures he endured at the unorthodox mental asylum from which he has now escaped. Redd maintains his innocence and is determined to prove it.
He creates Redd Incorporated, a twisted version of the modern office environment, filling it with six abducted people he holds directly responsible for his incarceration. His captive ‘human resources’ are literally chained to their desks and forced to perform the impossible job of finding the real killer. They must work in gruelling circumstances to prove the unprovable or face gruesome consequences.

A military satellite in a decaying orbit circles the earth as soldiers, led by COOPER, target it for destruction. As the seconds count down towards the planned, violent conclusion of this exercise, the unexpected occurs: a meteor rockets through the solar system and strikes the satellite, knocking it Earthward. The meteor plays host to an alien life form, and now that life form heads for Earth with the wreckage of the satellite, falling towards a remote, small town known as Preacher’s Mill.
