We mentioned a few weeks back in our review that the very funny, and often times bleakly disturbing horror film, 'EGOMANIAC' would have it's VOD release date announced soon after we posted it. Sure enough, Kate Shenton herself has done exactly that on her official Facebook page

Jakob Bilinksi's violent thriller, Three Tears on Bloodstained Flesh set to release on as a 2-disc DVD August 8th. Dread Central says, "One look at the title THREE TEARS ON BLOODSTAINED FLESH, and it’s pretty easy to peg just what kind of film this is! Giallo and Argento fans, listen up! This one is for you!"
When a mysterious, deformed young man named Cletus appears at their door, things soon change from petty insults to bloody, imaginatively orchestrated violence as Wallace attempts to protect her family from the vengeful intruder.

At a slim running time of just 22 minutes, Zygote wastes no time cutting to the chase and delivering on the gory goodness. And as has been the case with Oats Studio's previous entries, the visuals are top notch on both the CG and practical fx front. Watch Zygote for yourself and be sure to show your support for the series potential by donating or buying the extra DLC packages. Hopefully we get a Volume 2.

We can't wait to see if they're able to live up to this lofty promise!

What starts off as an exploratory séance ends in bloody mayhem when a malicious entity is summoned. Supernatural freaks, mystery, blood, and death lurk around every turn. As the survivors try to escape at all costs, their situation becomes more and more dire.
Certainly, a look at the trailer indicates pretty clearly that something bigger is happening, something darker - much more sinister - than a simple haunting. Whatever that is, we've got our fingers crossed the payoff will be worth it!
...passion, and creative drive, when paired with people as talented and determined as this particular team, is a hard thing to destroy. Thankfully for all of us, Bell saw it fit not to give up on Tea Leaves, and we're given a second chance to help make this special little project a reality.
