Call to arms: Adam Green & Ariescope need your support after flood hits

Last Updated on July 31, 2021

Adam Green is one of the top filmmakers working in the horror genre today. With such classics as HATCHET (and its sequels), FROZEN, CHILLERAMA, and the fuc*ing great DIGGING UP THE MARROW, Green and his crew over at Ariescope Pictures keep us fans happy and covered in gore. Day in, and day out. Rain or shine.

Well, looks like the rain finally hit…

Last Friday Southern California was hit with such hard rains that the Ariescope Pictures stronghold was flooded. Green then took to social media to ask for all of his fans to help out in this unfortunate time.

Here is Green's official release on the matter:


On Friday February 17th, Southern California was pummeled with the worst torrential rain the area has received in many, many years.  Los Angeles was hit with flash floods, sink holes, and a massive path of destruction in which homes and vehicles were destroyed.  In a few tragic cases lives were lost in the storm.  While we are grateful to report that everyone in our family was unharmed by the severe weather, unfortunately we can’t say the same for our beloved studio.  Our home.

The flooding was bad.  Several items from our 19 years of filmmaking (so far) were destroyed while various props and creature displays from our films were damaged.  Though some of the items were irreplaceable and are now just memories, the good news is that we have already begun the clean-up work, most all of our film’s props that were damaged will be refurbished and restored, and ArieScope Pictures will most certainly live to fight another day.  However, your help is greatly needed now more than ever.  Please consider buying something from our on-line store or donating to ArieScope/THE MOVIE CRYPT through our “Feed Arwen A Treat” option located in our “BUY STUFF” section right here.  With the help of our fans we hope to be back on our feet quickly.

Yes, this week’s episode of HORRIFIED will still premiere this Wednesday no matter what we have to do to pull it off in time.  Rain or shine (or in this case- lots of rain) we always meet our deadlines.  And for those who have asked via social networking… do not fear, Arwen is fine and was not harmed in the flooding.  In fact, to add her own comical twist in all of this… she tried to swim in the flooded area right before going home for the evening.  Arwen loves swimming and as far as she is concerned a pool is a pool… and laughter is always the best medicine.

Thank you for your concern, your well wishes, and especially for your generosity in supporting us right now.  We love you all.

-Adam Green and the entire ArieScope family

Personally, I'll be buying something off the site as soon as I log off tonight (not just bullsh*tting here). I listen to Green's podcast The Movie Crypt religiously and consider myself one of the "Cult of Arwen." 

I have included pics straight from Green's official statement of the flooded studio, and my picks for what YOU might consider the best picks from the Ariescope store, including awesome DIGGING UP THE MARROW posters.

I myself think I'll be purchasing one of Green's screenplays. I am a script-nut.
