The Silver Scream has had some problems with videos disappearing due to issues with youtube and the Internet Archives either deleting accounts and/or movies or moving them around. Because of this we decided to set up our own data base to house movies so they would be available without having to try to keep track of which ones have disappeared. To that extend we upgraded the site with our web hosting company Godaddy. We paid for an upgrade to house unlimited data and started updating movies to our brand new data base.
After updating some 800+ movies we got an e-mail from Godaddy saying that we were not allowed to house our movies on the “unlimited” database I paid for. Frustration mounted. According to Godaddy we could house unlimited files as long as they were small files. But if we upgrade to an even more expensive platform we could house movies. They threatened to take down the website if we did not take down the movies. We called another vendor.
The new vendor initiated the transfer of the website to their platform. Godaddy gave us a code number for the new vendor. The wrong code number. Much back and forth between us, Godaddy and the new vendor finally resulting in Godaddy providing the correct authorization code. The subsequent transfer takes at least a week. In the meantime Godaddy took down the website. Even though we are transferring to another vendor Godaddy refused to put the website back up until the “offending files” were taken down. We had no choice but to take down the 800+ movies that took us three weeks to upload.
Currently there are only a couple hundred movies still out on the site, most of them youtube movies and trailers. Once the website is finally transferred we will reinstate the missing movies. Your patience in this matter is appreciated. We are trying to make a nicer and more fun website but apparently Godaddy is not the partner for us to do that with.
Vampires, Mummies, Monsters, Clowns, the world is a scary place. From the time we are born to the time we are old we are constantly in peril. What was that sound? What was that shadow? Who, or worse yet what, is sneaking up behind me? Whether it’s creepy things or sinister places there is always something to fear.
Someone or something is out to get us. Creatures from a black lagoon, homicidal maniacs, mad scientists, serial killers, werewolves, the walking dead. The list is endless. Whether its Alien invasions, zombies, or runaway comets, we are always on the verge of an apocalypse. The sharks are everywhere. In the water, in the sand, in the snow, in the house, even in the air.
Outer space is vast, cold and frightening. Alien worlds full of creatures too horrible to describe. Blobs of all sizes and colors, meteors that grow and kill, Aliens of every kind. All strange and hostile. All wanting to take over the human race, the planet, my mind.
Even Mother Nature has run amok. Out of control DNA, radioactive sludge, dinosaurs, and graboids. All the creepy crawlies that make your stomach turn and your skin crawl. Spiders, bugs, ticks, slugs, bats, snakes. Whether there are thousands of them, or just one big one, they are constantly marching forward. Constantly breeding.
We can’t even take a walk in the woods without running into either Bigfoot or an in-bred backwoods sadist with an axe that wears people’s skin. And the trees. Without their leaves they are ragged arms. Are they reaching for me? When the wind makes them sway they look like they are walking. Surrounding me. Beckoning me.
It’s all not normal. It’s paranormal. It’s voodoo. It’s possessed. There’s a full moon out tonight and the landscape is full. Full of creatures that suck your blood. Creatures that eat your flesh. Creatures that absorb you, slowly. It’s all out there. Waiting. Salivating.
And the robots are watching.
So we hide at home with the drapes drawn. Huddled. Watching. Listening. Praying. But wait. We’re not even safe at home. In this old dark house with its hidden passages and secret rooms. Did you hear that? Why is the cat starring into that darkened corner? Why is he starring at me? Quickly, turn on the light!
Welcome to my world.
Welcome to… The Silver Scream.
