Friday the 13th + Halloween = A Match Made in Horror Heaven?

Paraskevidekatriaphobia is a term you may think I just made up, but it actually just refers to a specific phobia of Friday the 13th. This superstition behind the day stems from centuries of religious and cultural beliefs. In an interesting coincidence, this year’s Friday the 13th date falls in October, aligning with Halloween’s spooky atmosphere.

Leaning into the date’s superstitious associations, Reveel has compiled a lineup of fun slasher films to mark the occasion. Our 7 film selections contain the archetypal elements that slasher fans expect – scares, gore, and fun slasher villains. While Friday the 13th is not a conventional holiday, in Reveel, it absolutely is.

Here are the 7 slasher movies to check out this next Friday the 13th:

1. SlashFM II

Count Slashula brings more terrifying tales on a Halloween Night.

Why You Should Watch ‘Before They Vanish’ If You Love Animals

How can a Vietnam War vet ensure the survival of a unique herd of horses when his time is limited? Watch Before They Vanish for free on Reveel.

Films are often seen as a form of escapism, offering a temporary respite from the challenges of reality. But, there are times when a film can have the opposite effect, shining a light on overlooked issues that demand attention.

Before They Vanish is a powerful film that stays grounded in the real world. It sheds light on the plight of a horse rancher with declining health who desperately tries to find a safe haven for his horses to prevent them from being possibly sent to the slaughter.

The film authentically portrays the struggles faced by this rancher, addressing real-world problems that need urgent attention.

Frank Kuntz in ‘Before They Vanish’

The movie revolves around Frank Kuntz, a war veteran turned horse rancher, who has dedicated his life to the well-being of his 300 horses used for human therapy. Frank puts his family and horses above everything else, pouring all of his paychecks into their care. However, his world comes crashing down when he receives devastating news of a terminal cancer diagnosis.

Frank is now faced with limited time and must now find a new safe haven for his horses, as they may be sent to the slaughter without his oversight. The movie portrays Frank’s race against time and the challenges he faces in securing a future for his beloved horses, all while confronting his own mortality.

Ejaz Khan

Ejaz Khan – The Director of ‘Before They Vanish’

Ejaz Khan, the director, is a wildlife and fashion photographer who is originally from India. He is known for his work capturing the beauty of animals and the environmental challenges they face.

With a background in film and fashion, Ejaz’s unique storytelling techniques are reflected in his stunning photography and filmmaking. He enjoys bringing attention to overlooked problems in society that requires awareness, which is why he created Before They Vanish.

Frank Kuntz in ‘Before They Vanish’

Ejaz was in North Dakota for a photography project when he met Frank Kuntz and his horses. Frank Kuntz is a horse rancher and Vietnam veteran who spent his life taking care of a herd of horses that included rare Nokota horses. Unfortunately, he had recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer and was struggling to make ends meet in order to keep the horses in his care.

Without a ranch to live on, Frank’s horses have an unknown future. There are many kill pen buyers that acquire horses and claim that they will be sent to the slaughter if they are not “rescued” through a payment. He faced an immense challenge: how can he ensure the continued existence of his cherished herd before his time runs out?

Ejaz wanted to bring awareness to Frank’s problem. Initially, he was going to create a documentary about the issue, but ultimately, decided to create a scripted feature film to better capture Frank’s beautiful story.

Ejaz Khan approached casting Before They Vanish in a unique and authentic way. Instead of professional actors, Ejaz chose to cast real farmers and ranchers from North Dakota and Pennsylvania. These individuals had little to no experience with cameras, but they all shared a deep love and concern for Frank’s horses.

Ejaz encouraged them to be vulnerable in front of the camera, resulting in truly remarkable scenes that capture the rawness and authenticity of their emotions. This unconventional casting choice adds a genuine and grounded quality to the film. As these real individuals bring their own lived experiences and perspectives to the story, the film becomes a truly unique and compelling cinematic experience.

Before They Vanish portrays the real-life challenges that Frank faces and his unwavering dedication to his herd of horses used for human therapy. Frank credits the horses directly in helping him heal upon his return home from war. Today, he is still fighting for his health along with the well being of his horses.

While it isn’t a happy ending to the story, Ejaz Khan decided to generously donate a percentage of the film’s proceeds to support Frank and his horses, further exemplifying the genuine dedication and compassion portrayed in the film. Today, Frank is still fighting for his health along with the well being of his horses.

Reveel’s Innovative Approach To Advertising is Redefining The Streaming Experience

If you want to learn more about Reveel’s newly launched Partner Advertiser program, visit our Reveel For Business website
Reveel Entertainment is revolutionizing the way audiences watch advertisements. The streaming experience is usually crammed with irrelevant and disruptive ads. But with Reveel, watching ads has been completely reimagined into an experience that’s positive and highly relevant to each viewer.
“I think, in general, people don’t hate commercials or advertisements. They just hate things that really detract from what they’re trying to watch. We want as many advertisers that are valuable to the viewer and do not detract from the viewing experience. Matt Tims said, Co-Founder of Reveel Entertainment. “From an advertising perspective, we want advertisers to be presented in a way that creates a positive impression on viewers.”
Reveel provides viewers with personalized ads that are tailored to what each viewer is watching and where they are. This allows each viewer to get the most out of their ad experience, while advertisers are able to reach their target audience and optimize their campaigns.
One of Reveel’s Original shows, The Negotiators, uses advertisements in an innovative way to connect home buyers with real estate agents in their local area. Utilizing geo-targeting, the show ensures that individual viewers are presented with ads from real estate agents located within their own neighborhoods.
Throughout The Negotiators, real estate agents are promoted in non-intrusive ways. The series has in-show pause ads that promote agents. There are also featured segments, a segment integrated into the show that provides valuable insights into the viewer’s local housing market.
“We’ve constructed the entire show in a way that integrates show segments from localized experts.” Matt continues. “These agents are not running commercials. They are the featured experts in the show and we are highlighting experts in every individual area.”

At the core of Reveel lies the promise to always connect audiences with great stories, and the ad experience is another way of doing just that. We are dedicated not only to working with our advertisers but also incorporating them into our very ecosystem. Adapting to each advertiser’s needs and goals, we enable our partners to connect with their audience in a positive way.

One of the options Reveel provides advertisers with is to create a 3-step ad experience for viewers. This means that one single advertiser takes control of all the ads broadcasted during a user’s view session.

A pre-roll ad is shown before the program begins and drives awareness for the product or service, while a featured segment is interwoven in the middle of the program to generate value for the viewers. A direct response ad completes the experience, encouraging viewers to take an action whenever they pause the program.

“We’ve set things up where the awareness, value, and action driver are all in one session for a viewer. It’s the least intrusive to the end viewer and the most valuable to the advertiser.” Matt Tims states about Reveel’s advertising structure.

Using data-driven technology, Reveel can target down to the specific piece of content, category, genre, location, age, or rating, giving advertisers plenty of opportunities to connect with their audience. We have an audience-first philosophy and our platform, where viewers can enjoy advertisements as much as their favorite stories, reflects that.
