Chris Watts lived with his wife Shan'ann and their two young daughters in Frederick, Colorado. They were married for six years. Their life was the ideal American dream with two small children, Bella, 4, and Celeste, 3, and a beautiful five-bedroom home. But, as we learn as we get older, things aren’t always what they seem to be on the surface.
Although I am not sure as to the length of the affair, it is now public knowledge that Chris was having an affair with a female co-worker. It is also assumed, per discovery of certain searches done on his computer, that he may very well have wanted out of his marriage and to start anew with his mistress.
This was a very short investigation. Shan'ann and her daughters were reported missing on August 13 and by end of day August 15, the police had arrested Chris. During that interrogation Chris confessed to strangling his wife in a fit of rage and retaliation after (this is HIS account now) she strangled her two children when he asked her for a separation. (I find it hard to believe that a woman who was evidenced to be trying to get the marriage back on track and a dedicated mother would strangle her children in anger towards her husband. It’s very rare that a woman chooses strangulation, especially manual strangulation. That takes anywhere from 2-4 minutes of constant pressure. It’s very physically draining. Women more often use methods of murder that aren’t so hands-on, i.e. poison, firearm, fire…something where they don’t have to actually TOUCH the person to cause death. And it’s even more rare that a pregnant woman commits multiple murder, especially of children.)
On August 16 the bodies of Shan'ann and her two daughters were discovered at the property of Chris’ former employer (he was fired on August 15, maybe because he got arrested or maybe because the former boss had suspicions, I don’t know). The two little girls were found in oil tanks while Shan'ann was buried in a shallow grave near the tanks.
After that, he was charged with multiple counts of first degree murder, unlawful termination of a pregnancy and three tampering with a deceased human body counts. He pled guilty to all of those charges to avoid the death penalty. (Definitely cowardly, if you ask me but, I know no one did so, moving on.)
The interrogation video of Chris and his mistress’ interview have been released. Nancy Grace and guests discuss this at www.crimeonline.com. Check it out. You’ll realize the diabolical coldness that allowed this man to annihilate his family. Guests include Susan Constantine, Deception & Body Language Expert; Vincent Hill, Private Investigator, Author of "Playbook to a Murder"; Ashley Willcott, Atlanta Juvenile Judge & Lawyer; Ellen Killoran, CrimeOnline Reporter.

‘NIGHT TERRORS: BLOODY MARY’ AUGMENTED REALITY MOBILE GAME LAUNCHES IN OCTOBER
’Paranormal Activity’ Creator, Oren Peli, and Imprezario Entertainment Resurrect One of the Most Notorious Urban Legends.
Imprezario Entertainment, an augmented reality (AR) mobile entertainment company, today announced the release of its new horror mobile experience, “Night Terrors presents Bloody Mary: Queen of the Damned.”
Film director, producer and screenwriter Oren Peli(Paranormal Activity, Insidious) serves as the executive producer of “Night Terrors: Bloody Mary,” which will be available on both Android and iOS on October 12th.
“Night Terrors” pioneers state-of-the-art technology to immerse users into a survival horror game. The player’s environment is filled with terrifying creatures – demons, souls and other petrifying entities. The phone’s camera, LED light, 360 audio, and other system features create customized scares by using unique AR captured content in order to truly immerse players in an experience unlike anything else.
“Throughout my career, I’ve prided myself on storytelling and exploring innovative perspectives to deliver some of the most electrifying moments in film. ‘Night Terrors: Bloody Mary’ is enabling me to work with a new creative medium that will bring the narrative to users in their own homes, this time through their mobile device. I can think of nothing more horrifying, so I could not be more thrilled to be at the forefront of this emerging entertainment technology,” said Oren Peli, Executive Producer.
Oren Peli executive produces the new app, along with Jordan Rambis (Global Esport Resources) and Imprezario co-founders, Bryce Katz and Brett Tomberlin. White Horse Pictures’ Nigel Sinclair (The Woman In Black, Let Me In) and Nicholas Ferrall, and Tobin Armbrust (The Woman in Black, Let Me In) are also serving as Executive Producers.
“‘Night Terrors: Bloody Mary’ will be the first of two new AR app experiences developed by Imprezario Entertainment over the next several months, and we plan to continue increasing our AR gaming presence each year moving forward,” said Bryce Katz, Imprezario co-founder. “Our goal is to create a vast array of new adventures in a variety of genres incorporating high quality characters and immersive storylines for all ages.”
The new “Night Terrors” experience brings to life the urban legend of Bloody Mary and the terrible fate she inflicts on those foolish enough to summon her. The horrifying tale has been shared for hundreds of years. Unwanted at birth, Mary Tudor was the daughter of the notorious King Henry VIII, who beheaded any queen that failed to give him a male heir.
Sustained by her vanity and the mirror that was never far from her side, she rose above all rivals to become England’s first reigning queen. Answering to no man, she ruled alone and the tyranny of Queen Mary’s reign matched her father’s as did her obsessions which lead to hundreds dead by her command. It was this bloodshed that earned her the moniker that would last forever - Bloody Mary.
For more information, visit www.NightTerrorsApp.com.
A native of Israel, Oren Peli came to the U.S. at the age of 19. Back home, he had dropped out of high school at age 16 to write PHOTON PAINT, a highly successful paint and animation software for the Commodore Amiga, then became a full-time software programmer, using his skills to create animation programs and video game software.
Peli then transitioned into film making. Paranormal Activity, which Peli wrote, directed and produced, was his first film. Since then, he produced the hit sequels Paranormal Activity 2, 3, and 4, The Marked Ones, and The Ghost Dimension. Paranormal Activity, which was made for only $15,000, would go on to make nearly $200 million. In total, the Paranormal Activity movies have earned more than $900 million, making it one some of the highest-grossing horror franchises of all time.
Peli is also the producer of Insidious 1, 2, 3 and 4 and of the horror film The Bay, from
director Barry Levinson, and Lords of Salem by writer/director Rob Zombie. He was the co-creator and executive producer of the ABC Show The River, from executive producer Steven Spielberg, and producer/writer of the movie Chernobyl Diaries.
Going back to his tech-roots, Peli founded SPOT, a mobile app that lets users easily create or join other local users' events to meet new people with similar interests.
Fandor’s haunted house! Halloween Movies to Stream that are NOT Hocus Pocus on Fandor
Looking to discover scary movies that you haven’t seen before? We’re kicking off the Halloween festivities by showcasing some of our worst nightmares, so dim the lights and sink into our favorite and most diabolical horror movies. See our list of creepy and bone-chilling films below and watch at your own risk!
Halloween: Worst Nightmares
Directed by William Friedkin
A lonely waitress with a tragic past, Agnes rooms in a run-down motel, living in fear of her abusive, recently paroled ex-husband. But when Agnes begins a tentative romance with Peter, an eccentric, nervous drifter, she starts to feel hopeful again - until the first bugs arrive.
Lisa and the Devil
Directed by Mario Bava
Regarded as Mario Bava's most personal and unconventional film, LISA AND THE DEVIL is a diabolical thriller flavored with the dreadful imagery and tormenting logic of an endless nightmare.
Directed by Richard Franklin
Robert Thompson stars as a comatose killer seemingly unresponsive in a small private hospital. But when a hot new nurse begins to question his condition, Patrick will unleash a waking nightmare of psychokinetic carnage.
Directed by F.W. Murnau
Before the assorted treatments of the Dracula tale starring either Bela Lugosi, Christopher Lee, Gary Oldman or Klaus Kinski there was F.W. Murnau's NOSFERATU, one of the first and still most haunting of all vampire tales.
The Bird with the Crystal Plumage
Directed by Dario Argento
While this modern day Jack the Ripper type is slithering through the dark byways of Rome slicing up pretty girls, director Dario Argento is carving up the emotions of terrified viewers. Dark deeds are mixed with black comedy worthy of Alfred Hitchcock in a film of almost unbearable tension and nail-biting suspense
The House that Dripped Blood
Directed by Peter Duffell
A four-part anthology, all revolving around a house where all the previous owners everyone have died in a horrible fashion.
The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari
Directed by Robert Wiene
The most brilliant example of that dark and twisted film movement known as German expressionism, THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI is a plunge into the mind of insanity that severs all ties with the rational world.
Directed by Yohei Fukuda
A cowboy-hat-wearing, bikini-clad zombie assassin mows down hordes upon hordes of the undead in this tongue-in-cheek Japanese exploitation film, perhaps best understood by its alternative English title: ZOMBIE BIKINI SQUAD.
Carnival of Souls
Directed by Herk Harvey
Mary Henry struggles to put her life back in order after emerging the lone survivor of a gruesome car accident. She takes a job as a church organist in Utah, alienating neighbors and fellow roomers with an icy detachment; unbeknownst to them all, Mary is sinking into one mystery after another. How did Mary Henry survive that accident? Why is she drawn to the abandoned carnival on an isolated beach? And who is the pale, sinister-looking man that has followed her to her new home?
Directed by Alejandro Jodorowsky
The story of a young circus performer, the crime of passion that shatters his soul and the macabre journey back to the world of his armless mother, deaf-mute lover and murder. It is an odyssey of ecstasy and anguish, belief and blasphemy, beauty and madness. It is unlike any movie you have seen before... or ever will.
Dark Night of the Scarecrow
Directed by Frank De Felitta
When young Marylee Williams is found viciously mauled, all hell breaks loose in her small rural town. Officious postmaster Otis P. Hazelrigg (Charles Durning) leads a gang of bigots in pursuit of the suspect: her mentally challenged friend Bubba Ritter (Larry Drake). Finding him hiding inside a scarecrow, they exact brutal mob "justice" only to discover a tragic mistake! Now a strange apparition stalks the land seeking each of them out as the legend of the Scarecrow begins.
“Sex and the Serial Killer: My Bizarre Times with Robert Durst” is now available to pre-order, as it is set to be durstributed in October.
Multimillionaire Robert Durst is awaiting trial for the cold-blooded murder of his onetime best friend Susan Berman, but this gripping memoir reveals that he’s likely had many other victims, including several other women and innocent house-pets.
Sex and the Serial Killer is written by a repentant art and jewel thief, who is using the pseudonym William Steel and remains at an undisclosed location for his safety.
Steel was Durst’s friend and confidante for decades and now believes that the “Dursturbed” real estate scion is the wealthiest serial killer in American history.
Besides shedding light on Durst’s demented deeds, this book is a call for justice for many of Durst’s victims that simply vanished without a trace and remain unsolved mysteries, causing endless grief to their loved ones.
We urge you to share and support the book’s pre-sale, post, review and more. Durst has spent millions of dollars hiring a Dream Team of attorneys in a desperate bid for freedom, but Steel warns: "If Bobby Durst gets set free, he will kill again. That's what he does."
Please visit www.sexandtheserialkiller.com and follow us on social media to share the bone-chilling story of this abusive fiend and help bring him to justice for all of those who no longer have a voice.
FANDANGO’S STREAMING SERVICE, FANDANGONOW, BRINGS TO LIFE TOP 25 ZOMBIE MOVIES, RANKED BY ROTTEN TOMATOES’ TOMATOMETER SCORES, TO CELEBRATE 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF “NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD”
Today marks the 50th anniversary of “Night of the Living Dead,” the granddaddy of the modern-day zombie movies. To celebrate the occasion, Fandango’s fast-growing on-demand video streaming service, FandangoNOW, is bringing to life the 25 “freshest” zombie movies in a list of classics curated by movie review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes and based on those movies’ Tomatometer scores. (A movie gets a “Fresh” designation when at least 60% of its critic reviews are positive, and the original “Living Dead” retains its crown as the “freshest” film of the zombie pack.)
“Zombies owe their popularity today to a little low-budget film from Pittsburgh released 50 years ago today, and ‘Night of the Living Dead’ has lost none of its power to shock, stun and terrify,” says Fandango Managing Editor Erik Davis. “With its stark, in-your-face black-and-white imagery of the dead coming back to flesh-eating life, director George Romero’s film made it clear to 1968 audiences that visceral horror no longer took the shape of Gothic frights like werewolves and vampires. It now looks just like your friends and neighbors, and there is no escape. To celebrate the ‘Dead’s 50th-anniversary FandangoNOW is hosting the top 25 zombie movies that you can view at home today, starting of course with the film that started it all.”
To celebrate the anniversary today only, fans can rent any (or all) of the zombie movies on the FandangoNOW list at a discounted rate, with $1.00 off the regular low price when using the promo code LIVINGDEAD50 at checkout.
