Piranha 3DD (2012)

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water park... The piranhas are back in another outrageous outing with even more blood and boobs than ever before! Those pesky pre-historic piranhas have found their way into a new lake, but unfortunately for the locals, the lake also serves as the source for the the new Big Wet water park! If you thought PIRANHA 3D was in poor taste, you ain't seen nuthin' yet! The creative team behind the cult-classic FEAST takes over in this direct-to-video sequel, and they have really nailed it this time. PIRANHA 3DD shoots way over the top with its crude humor and exploitative fun, throwing political-correctness to the wind along with plenty of limbs and bikini tops. Don't let the 'R' rating fool you... This film has more gratuitous nudity and violence than any Uncut DVD on the market. All contextualized, of course. Where PIRANHA 3D never struck an even balance between the humor and horror, director John Gulager and writers Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan keep the pace moving a mile a minute as they shock, entertain, and completely disgust along the way. If that weren't enough, PIRANHA 3DD unleashes the one-and-only David Hasselhoff in a brilliant self-parody for the final act. Any fans who may have been disappointed with the last PIRANHA can get ready for a stupid good time with PIRANHA 3DD!

Rating: 6/10.

'The Killing Games' to Premiere in Calgary

BANNED IN EDMONTON
THE KILLING GAMES

GETS WORLD PREMIERE AT THE CALGARY INTERNATIONAL FILM FEST

EDMONTPON, AB - August 31, 2012 - The Calgary International Film Festival has said that THE KILLING GAMES will make it's World Premiere on Saturday September 22nd as a part of the Late Show Series. “We are just ecstatic that Calgary has accepted the movie to Premiere at their festival,” States Bruce Fletcher who is a programmer with The Calgary International Film Festival told Gillis that he watched the movie twice, and found the movie to be very entertaining. Gillis continues, “We're so happy that Bruce, Brenda Lieberman and The Calgary International Film Festival were brave enough to take a chance on THE KILLING GAMES, especially after the movie was turned down in Edmonton.”

In May, Gillis was told that his feature film THE KILLING GAMES was “too violent for The Edmonton International Film Festival.” Gillis was shocked by the decision, mainly because he resides in Edmonton. “Yes, I was shocked,” laments Gillis, “but that's all in the past now. We're heading South down to the great city of Calgary where Oscar-nominated Canadian director Deepa Mehta's film MIDNIGHT'S CHILDREN,” is going to open the Calgary International Film Festival. Brandon Cronenberg's movie ANTIVIRAL will also be playing in the Late Show Series, and we couldn't dream of being apart of anything bigger and better than that.”

The Calgary International Film Festival is world renowned for their hospitality and the way that they treat filmmakers and film fans alike. “Calgary gets upwards of 50,000 fans attending their festival. Tourists, fans, great films, and the best parties... I mean, this is huge for us Gillis says with a grin. Calgary and Edmonton have been rival cities for many years. “Yes, the two cities have been at it for what seems like forever” says Gillis with a laugh, “however, Calgary is not just going to accept a movie because Edmonton turned it down. I mean, THE KILLING GAMES is entertaining as hell, just ask Jason Eisener who directed HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN starring Rutger Hauer. THE KILLING GAMES is a disturbing feature film about a man who's wife is dying of a mysterious illness. The man contemplates taking the law into his own hands, after his daughter witnesses a double homicide and narrowly escapes the grasp of two serial killers.

ANCHOR BAY ENTERTAINMENT PRESENTS
THE ORIGINAL 1980 CULT CLASSIC
MOTHER’S DAY

For The First Time On Blu-ray™ & All New Special Features!

Originally released by Troma Entertainment in 1980, the film shocked critics, but garnered a huge cult following among fans of the genre, including Hostel director Eli Roth, and director of Saw II-IV, Darren Lynn Bousman, who helmed the 2012 remake starring Rebecca De Mornay.

Halloween 4 (1988)

Michael Myers is back, having been called home to Haddonfield when he discovers that his niece Jamie has escaped his bloody rampage. It is up to Dr. Loomis to stop the mindless murderer once and for all! HALLOWEEN 4 marks the return of Michael Myers after a seven year hiatus following the events in HALLOWEEN 2. With the Slasher genre already on the wane by 1988, the delayed attempt to cash-in on the series surprisingly proves to be amongst the very best when it comes to Slasher sequels. Dwight H. Little makes several ambitious attempts with the camera in addition to his many big action sequences. Michael's rooftop assault on Jamie and Rachel marks one of the most thrilling scenes in the Slasher genre. Composer Alan Howarth breathes new life into John Carpenter's original score, with an increase in tempo that heightens the heart-racing suspense. The majority of HALLOWEEN 4's success, however, lies in the hands of young Danielle Harris in her breakthrough role as Jamie Lloyd. Her sweet sincerity and innocent charm are only matched by her ability to express sheer terror as she eludes her murderous uncle on screen. The great Donald Pleasence returns to the role of Dr. Loomis as well, with all of the same mannerisms and lengthy monologues that he is best known for from the first two films. Just when it seems that Michael has been defeated and that everything is safe in the end, we are given one final shock that rivals Michael's disappearance in the original HALLOWEEN!

Rating: 7/10.

Magnet Acquires 'John Dies at the End'

MAGNET TAKES WORLDWIDE RIGHTS TO DON COSCARELLI’S 
JOHN DIES AT THE END

NEW YORK, NY – August 22, 2012 – The Wagner/Cuban Company’s Magnet Releasing, genre arm of Magnolia Pictures, announced today they have acquired worldwide rights to JOHN DIES AT THE END, a phantasmagoric new sci-fi/horror film directed, produced and written for the screen by auteur and cult legend Don Coscarelli (Bubba Ho-Tep, the Phantasm series). Starring Paul Giamatti (who executive produced with Daniel Carey), Chase Williamson, Rob Mayes, Clancy Brown, Glynn Turman and Doug Jones, the film was also produced by M3 Creative’s Brad Baruh, Andy Meyers and Roman Perez, and based on the bestselling book by David Wong.

Paul Giamatti plays Arnie, a shadowy figure investigating a street drug known as Soy Sauce. Promising an out-of-body experience with each hit, Soy Sauce causes users to drift across time and dimensions. But some who come back are no longer human. Suddenly a silent otherworldly invasion is underway, and mankind needs a hero. What it gets instead is John and Dave (Mayes and Williamson), a pair of college dropouts who can barely hold down jobs. Can these two stop the oncoming horror in time to save humanity? No. No, they can’t.

JOHN DIES AT THE END premiered as a work in progress at this year’s Sundance film festival, kicking off an impressive festival run that included SXSW and the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival, where the final cut of the film will premiere as the closing night film of Midnight Madness. Magnet will release the film this year through its Ultra VOD program, debuting it on all VOD platforms in late December, with a theatrical release to follow in early 2013.

“We are longtime fans of the great Don Coscarelli, and fell in love with this film when it debuted at Sundance,” said Magnolia/Magnet President Eamonn Bowles. “It’s a real head trip—imaginative, wildly funny, and incredibly demented, with all the makings of an underground classic that fans will come back to again and again.”

Coscarelli adds, “It is my great pleasure to be allied with the finest and most entrepreneurial independent film distributor in the terrific team at Magnolia Pictures. They share my passion for the story of Dave and John…Obviously the “Soy Sauce” that kicks the plot into gear has had the same addictive effect on them as it did me. Watch out!”

The deal was negotiated by Magnet/Magnolia Director of Acquisitions Peter Van Steemburg with the filmmakers.

BEVERLY HILLS, CA – August 21, 2012 – Anchor Bay Films invites viewers to revisit those campfire ghost stories that launched thousands of nightmares at summer camp with the October 9th release of The Barrens, the twisted new chiller from writer/director Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw II, Saw III, Saw IV, Mother’s Day). With a stellar genre and mainstream cast including Stephen Moyer (“True Blood,” Priest), Mia Kirshner (“The Vampire Diaries,” “The L Word,” “24”), Erik Knudsen (Scream 4, Saw II, “Continuum,” “Jericho”) and Allie MacDonald (House at the End of the Street), The Barrens arrives on Blu-ray™/DVD Combo Pack for an SRP of $29.99 and DVD for an SRP of $26.98.

As the Vineyard family ventures further into the woods in search of the perfect campsite, Richard teeters on the edge of sanity. Welcome to a new kind of horror that lives – and kills – in a place called The Barrens.

Jersey Shore Shark Attack (2012)

The Jersey Shore is rocked by a prehistoric species of sharks after an illegal drilling operation awakens them from an underwater cave, leaving it is up to a group of greased-up party-goers to save the day! Yes, it is as bad as it sounds, and no, Roger Corman did not produce it. JERSEY SHORE SHARK ATTACK combines the two worst things television has to offer in to an hour-and-a-half of sheer stupidity. Luckily, characters Donnie, Nooki, TC "The Complication," and others provide a few cheap laughs along the way as they spoof their MTV counterparts. The editing and sound design playfully poke fun at the television series as well, although no amount of scripted humor can ever compare to the natural idiocy of Jersey Shore. JERSEY SHORE SHARK ATTACK proudly boasts some of the worst computer-generated sharks that mankind has ever known. One can only hope that the designers were in on the joke, and intended for the sharks to look this terrible. At the very least, visitors to the Jersey Shore are filled with explosive geysers of blood, and make for many tasty snacks. As awful as the film may be, it has the same captivating effect as the MTV show. It is impossible to look away for fear of what you might miss. Coming soon to dollar bins everywhere alongside SPRING BREAK SHARK ATTACK, MEGA PIRANHA, and DINOSHARK.

Rating: 3/10.

The Walking Dead: Season 2 (2011-2012)

Rick and his team of survivors have made it out of Atlanta alive, but when one of their youngest members disappears into the woods, the group is thrown right back in to danger as they set out to look for her. Their search leads them to a remote farmhouse that has been left unscathed by the surrounding threat, where they join forces with Hershel Greene and his family in their continued struggle to survive. Tensions rise as personal conflicts and ideologies come to a head, but the group's petty differences must be put aside when the farm is overrun by the undead!

Television's most highly-anticipated series returns home on high-definition DVD and Blu-ray in The Walking Dead: The Complete Second Season. With an expanded 13 episodes this season, the actors and writers are given much more room to breath in creating true to life characters and situations that reach far beyond conventional stereotypes. Character arches that were begun last season reach soaring new heights as the group is broken over issues of trust, leadership, and morality. While the pace is noticeably slower than before, the tension has never been greater. The season is split into two distinct halves, each of which end in a shocking twist that few will anticipate!

While he is still very good in the lead, Andrew Lincoln's performance as Rick Grimes is often overstated, given his limited range of emotion. Rick must reconsider his altruistic nature when faced with many life-or-death situations, but the emotional impact that should accompany these key decisions is lessened as a result of his constant overplaying. Jon Bernthal, on the other hand, takes his role to a whole new level in this second season, becoming the central figure around whom the majority of the drama unfolds. Bernthal represents even more of a threat than the undead scourge that surrounds them, yet his cold logic and authoritative command make him a force to be reckoned with. Lincoln and Bernthal are rejoined by their strong supporting cast, whose individual characters have been intrinsically woven into each episode to allow each actor a chance to define their role in the greater story. Laurie Holden and Jeffrey DeMunn deserve specific recognition here for their outstanding efforts this season along with Veteran actor Scott Wilson, who joins the cast as the Greene family patriarch.

Award-winning special effects crew KNB Efx also returns to produce some of the most realistic and terrifying creatures that the zombie genre has ever known. They surpass even their own best work this season, with plenty of gut-wrenching images of violence and gore. In addition to the endless hordes, KNB has created several "hero" zombies that stand out among the crowd, including the grotesquely bloated well zombie. 

If the first season were not enough to get you hooked, The Walking Dead: The Complete Second Season will leave you begging for more! This is must-see television at its finest, combining the shock and terror of a mainstream Horror film with a depth in character and intelligence in design that are fit for prime time.

 Rating: 10/10.

Lovely Molly (2011)

Newlyweds Tim and Molly move in to Molly's childhood home after the death of her parents, but the demons from the past return to haunt her as she spirals back in to drugs and paranoia. LOVELY MOLLY is an exercise in claustrophobic tension and psychological terror from THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT director Eduardo Sánchez. Like Lars von Trier's ANTICHRIST, LOVELY MOLLY is deeply embedded with occult symbolism and paranoid delusion as Sánchez draws a dizzying veil of madness around his characters. The lines of reality are often blurred and left open to interpretation throughout the film as a result, which can sometimes have a disorienting effect on the viewer. On top of its suffocating mood, LOVELY MOLLY succeeds in creating a number of subtle scares through its spine-tingling sound design, putting the audience on edge without saturating the screen in blood or gore. Gretchen Lodge is as much an asset as she is a liability as Molly. At times, her blatant overacting destroys the illusion, but for every misstep, she counters with an equally-haunting moment of dread. If one thing can be said for certain, however, it is that Lodge has fully committed herself to this role, and she truly believes in the character she is portraying on screen. Atmosphere wins out above all else in this chilling little mood piece.

Rating: 7/10.

Tribeca Film Acquires 'Resolution'

TRIBECA FILM ACQUIRES NORTH AMERICAN RIGHTS
TO GENRE DEFYING 
RESOLUTION
***
“A tale of secrets and narrative revelations … strong storytelling with suspense and emotion.”
- Steve Zeitchik, Los Angeles Times
***
"Resolution is an intelligent indie flick that explores new areas of horror with stunning execution. 
These are two guys to watch out for." 
Bloody Disgusting

NEW YORK, NY – August 17, 2012 – Mysterious forces, personal demons, dark humor and gripping performances combine in the genre-defying tour-de-force Resolution. Tribeca Film today announced it has acquired all North American rights from XYZ Films to rising directing duo Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson’s naturalistic-yet-otherworldly thriller. The film’s enigmatic narrative and fresh take on genre filmmaking captivated audiences and critics at its Tribeca Film Festival and Fantasia International Film Festival premieres earlier this year.

Moorhead and Benson brilliantly straddle the line between raw thrills and honest emotion as complex characters and powerful performances drive this ambitious, unconventional narrative about two friends, one a junkie forced to go cold turkey in an isolated cabin. But what begins as an attempt to save his friend’s life quickly takes an unexpected turn “sure to please even the most seasoned horror fans” (Sound on Sight). “Much of Resolution’s fear factor happens in your head,” the Montreal Gazette raved, due to its “constantly shifting tone, from male-bonding buddy movie to occult thriller, psychodrama, horror and more.”

Tribeca Film plans an early 2013 theatrical release day and date with on-demand platforms, where it will be available in 40+ million homes through a variety of video-on-demand offerings, as well as iTunes, Amazon Watch Instantly, VUDU and Xbox. A strong festival run is set ahead of the commercial release.

Horror buffs and film industry insiders have kept a keen eye on breakout co-directors Moorhead and Benson, who Twitch placed “in the class of bright young voices in American horror to watch including Ti West, Jim Mickle and Adam Wingard.” The enterprising pair has an uncanny ability to capture true humanity within the context of an intricate narrative. While genre elements surface in Resolution, otherworldly tones create an exhilarating layer of unpredictability.

“Anchored by two extraordinary lead performances, Resolution is a truly singular work that avoids easy classification,” said Geoffrey Gilmore, Chief Creative Officer of Tribeca Enterprises. “Aaron and Justin are some of the industry’s brightest new talent.”

“Tribeca Film’s acquisition via XYZ Films is proof that when outsiders band together to make something that scares people while breaking their hearts and making them laugh, that movie will find equally daring industry leaders to passionately support it,” said co-directors Moorhead and Benson. “We’re grateful that audiences share that same excitement for a movie in which we chose to constantly do something different. It validates all the risks we took, so we'll definitely be pushing it that much further on our next projects.”

The deal was negotiated for Tribeca Film by Nick Savva, Director of Acquisitions, and on behalf of the filmmakers by Nate Bolotin and Aram Tertzakian from XYZ Films.

Get 'The Treatment' at the KISS / Motley Crue 2012 Tour!

And now, for a special editorial report:

Here at I Like Horror Movies, we rarely interject with personal opinion pieces, but when something this awesome happens, we just have to chime in! A disease has plagued Modern Rock for over a decade, a disease which has stifled creativity and rewarded bands for playing safe and friendly tunes geared towards mass-market consumption. Finally, there is 'The Treatment'! Five kick-ass Rock 'N' Rollers from Cambridge, England that are opening for KISS and Motley Crue this Summer at only 19-years-old! The Treatment made their US-debut in San Diego this Sunday, blowing audiences away with their throwback style, hardcore vocals, banging drums, and killer guitar work. These guys single-handedly proved that Rock is alive and well with hits "Shake the Mountain," "Nothing to Lose But Our Minds," and "The Doctor":



If you thought that Rock was dead and find yourself constantly missing the 80's, it's time you got The Treatment! Their new album "This Might Hurt" is available online, and they will be on tour with KISS and Motley Crue Summer 2012!

Breaking Glass Pictures Presents 'Dust Up'

AMBER BENSON'S
DUST UP
GOING DOWN IN 2012

From Breaking Glass Pictures

PHILADELPHIA, PA - August 14, 2012 - Domestic distributor Breaking Glass Pictures (5 Star Day, The Fields, Easier With Practice) bought domestic rights to the indie grindhouse comedy Dust Up. The deal was struck last week between CEO Rich Wolff and writer/director/producer Ward Roberts of Drexel Box Productions. Dust Up stars genre favorite Amber Benson ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer", Drones), Ezra Buzzington ("Justified"), Jeremiah Birkett, Travis Betz, Aaron Gaffey, Devin Barry, and Mike C. Nelson.

Roberts couldn't be happier about the upcoming release. "Dust Up is truly a one-of-a-kind film... fun, funny, scary, sweet, twisted, intense and gross all at the same time. We needed to find a distributor who understood that and could deliver us in the biggest possible way to the ravenous audience who hungers for movies like Dust Up. We are thrilled to be partnered with just such a company in Breaking Glass."

A one-eyed vigilante with a dark past has vowed to change his ways, trading his machine gun for a yoga mat. But when he encounters a beautiful young mother (Benson) in deep trouble with a cannibalistic drug lord and his evil goons, he realizes that justice must be served. Teamed up with his smooth-talking Native American hipster sidekick, our hero rides into the badass brawl of the century.

Dust Up had a private sneak peek screening at San Diego Comic Con on Friday, July 13th to select critics and contest winners from Benson's considerable Twitter following. Drexel Box Productions and Breaking Glass Pictures are planning a limited theatrical release in the fall season. Brett Schenker of Graphic Policy raved, "Yes, it's weird. Yes, it's over the top. Yes, it's hilarious." Likewise, Keith McDuffee of CliqueClack called Benson "flawless as usual."

The DVD will hit shelves in November, loaded with special features including an audio commentary with Benson and Roberts, Find the Pony, a behind the scenes featurette; various interviews with cast and crew, The Herm Dawg Diaries featurette shot by Betz, and the Dust Up Comedy PSA.

With stunning cover artwork from three-time Bram Stoker Award winning artist Vincent Chong and thirteen never-before-printed tales, New Moon on the Water will be a highly sought after and collected volume.

In a smoky, after hours jazz joint where almost nobody ever dies, or the ranch house next door owned by a monster, or a high rise elevator in which raging terror awaits the next passenger, these brilliant stories discover a world you thought you knew--and a darker one you will never forget. With 13 stories never before collected, NEW MOON ON THE WATER is Mort Castle's first new collection in a decade, presenting the best short fiction of the writer deemed a "horror doyen," "the Charles Dickens of horror," and "the master of contemporary horror."

"Castle's stories are frightening trips inside the dark psyche of common people ... (He is) a must read for the fans of both Stephen King and the fans of Raymond Carver."

Newsweek.pl

"Mort Castle is one of the best short story writers in the horror field today. More than that, he's one of the best short story writers around, period. . He writes short stories that make a point, stick in your memory, remain with you long after you've put down the book in which they appear."

Inception Gets 'Vile'

Inception Media Group Proudly Presents
VILE

How Far Would You Go to Survive?

Heart-Pounding Thriller Escapes on DVD Sept. 11th

LOS ANGELES, CA - August 14, 2012 - A group of strangers find out how far they are willing to go to survive in the thriller Vile, escaping on DVD Sept. 11 from Inception Media Group.

A group of strangers finds themselves imprisoned in a house. Unsure why they are there or who is behind it, the group is soon enlightened by a video advising them there is a way out!

But the threshold they must cross is one of excruciating pain and – in the face of torture – not everyone is willing to play by the newly created rules. The group is ripped apart by infighting, secret alliances, double-crosses and shattering outbursts of violence.

With the clock ticking down, the “one for all” mentality devolves. Just how far will each of them go to survive?

Vile is presented in widescreen with an aspect ratio of 1.78:1 and 5.1 digital sound. Special features include a behind-the-scenes featurette.

'Blood Fare' Makes Its World Premiere at Dragon*Con

World Premiere Of Female Action Filmmaker J.A. Steel’s
BLOOD FARE
At Dragon*Con 2012

SALT LAKE CITY, UT – August 14, 2012 – On August 14th, 2012, J.A. Steel, the award winning female writer and director, announces the world premiere of her fourth feature film “Blood Fare” for the Dragon*Con 2012 in Atlanta, GA. As part of the official Dragon*Con 2012 programming the screening is scheduled for Friday, August 31st at 8:30pm at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta, Hanover CDE. A live Q&A with “Blood Fare” star Gil Gerard, internationally recognized for his lead role as Captain William ‘Buck’ Rogers in the science fiction movie and television series “Buck Rogers in the 25th Century,” and director J.A. Steel will follow the screening.

“Blood Fare” is a Civil War ghost story with a modern twist, by J.A. Steel and Co-Producer Christian K. Koch. It is the tale of Corporal Henry Trout (S. Edward Meek - “Wild Stallion”), who in 1861 fought valiantly in a forgotten skirmish after the first battle of Bull Run. 150 years later, he will come face to face with his descendants as the battle for blood continues on a haunted battlefield. Tyler (Brandi Lynn Anderson from the upcoming Syfy original series “ZEROS”) and her brother Chad (Adrian West), Henry's fifth generation grandchildren, will challenge the very legend of Charon the Ferryman, as the lines between the living and the dead become blurred.

Gerard plays the character of Professor Meade, mentor to the protagonist Tyler, in “Blood Fare”. Gerard was recently seen in the Syfy original movie “Ghost Town”. International action star, Kim Sonderholm, most recently seen in the newly released “Little Big Boy,” appears alongside Gerard as Professor Malick.

In addition to Gerard and Sonderholm, several other amazingly talented actresses and actors have joined the “Blood Fare” cast, including Michelle Wolff (“NCIS”, “Chicago Hope”, “ER”, and “Providence”), Savannah Ostler (“Vengeance”), Bridget McManus (“Wanted”), Scott Beringer (“Ocean’s Eleven” and “21”), Brenden Whitney, Alison Trouse, Thomas J. Post, Antonio Lexerot and April Knight. Marcus Intheam, Salt Lake City star radio DJ and “The Real L Word Live Lounge” host Natalie M. Garcia add live broadcast talent.

Chris Hanson, one of the most recognized special makeup effects artists of Hollywood, joined the crew of “Blood Fare” as Special Makeup Effects Supervisor. He demonstrated his unique creativity in “Hellboy”, “Underworld”, “Men in Black”, “Men in Black 2”, “The Green Mile”, “The X-Files”, “The Faculty”, “Spawn” and many other productions.

Steel rounds out her crew with Director of Photography Michael B. Call (“127 Hours”), Co-Producer Christian M. Koch, who has worked with Steel on her first 3 films, and Executive Producer Jessica M. Bair.

The up-and-coming colorist, Jeff Pantaleo, completed the digital coloring of “Blood Fare” on the newly developed Scratch workflow at Warner Bros. Motion Picture Imaging (MPI).

Mastered by Universal Music Mastering's Grammy winning Erick Labson the first song of the “Blood fare” soundtrack has been released on iTunes: The River Mountain Band with "Lay Down Your Trouble" - Lyrics J.A. Steel - Music J.A. Steel & Caleb S. Gray - Piano Arrangement Amanda Lee Bowman.

“Blood Fare” is a green, sustainable film production, and Eco/Sustainable Production Executive Micheline Birkhead was on set to ensure the project meets green certification requirements.

'Hollister' Heads Home October 9th!

“Holliston doesn't look like anything else on TV and
that is a very good thing." – HitFix

“Think of it as the show you hoped The Big Bang Theory
would be.” – The Austin Chronicle

GET READY TO LAUGH YOUR HEAD OFF!
IMAGE ENTERTAINMENT PRESENTS
FEARnet’S HIT ORIGINAL TV SERIES

HOLLISTON:
THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON

On Blu-ray™ and DVD October 9, 2012

CHATSWORTH, CA – August 13, 2012 – The TV show Dread Central called “laugh out loud funny” comes to Blu-ray™ and DVD with Holliston: The Complete First Season. The FEARnet original series created by Adam Green (Hatchet, Frozen) is a twisted mash-up of situation comedy, horror fan hijinks and heavy metal attitude. Holliston: The Complete First Season breaks the mold (and the rules) of traditional TV comedy and creates a new raucous brand of hip humor that’s unlike anything seen before. The set contains the original extended episodes from the season, plus hysterical bonus features including audio commentaries, deleted scenes, bloopers, behind-the-scenes, and much more! SRP for the Blu-ray™ is $29.98 and DVD is $24.98. Pre-book is September 11.

Adam (Green) and Joe (Joe Lynch, Wrong Turn 2) are two down-on-their-luck aspiring horror movie filmmakers trying to break out of their small hometown of Holliston, Massachusetts, and into the Hollywood big leagues while learning to deal with the opposite sex.

Joe's adorably demented girlfriend Laura (Laura Ortiz, The Hills Have Eyes) joins Adam's ex – and greatest heartbreak of his life – Corri (Corri English, Unrest) in rounding out the ensemble cast of this hilariously original and offbeat re-imagining of the traditional American sitcom that has comedy and horror fans loving its hard hitting laughs, tremendous heart, and slapstick violence.

Co-starring Twisted Sister lead singer Dee Snider as the glam rock loving boss "Lance Rockett" and Dave Brockie (from the band GWAR) as Adam's imaginary alien friend Oderus Urungus, Holliston: The Complete First Season is filled with cool and crazy cameos and wickedly sly inside jokes – it’s a bloody good time!

Episodes: The Hooker, Camera Rental, Skunked, Candyman, Laura's Little Twitter, Weekend of Horrors.

Bonus features on Holliston: The Complete First Season Blu-ray™ and DVD include: Audio Commentaries, Deleted Scenes, Bloopers, Behind-the-Scenes, “Road to Holliston” Promos, and TV Special Sneak Peek.

Become Ensnared in a 'Twisted Romance'

Passion Turns Deadly in QC Cinema's
TWISTED ROMANCE

PHILADELPHIA, PA - August 7, 2012 - QC Cinema, in association with Breaking Glass Pictures, is proud to announce the September 25 DVD release of "Twisted Romance" (SRP $24.99), a dark sexually energized thriller about the evil side of passion, and how one man's sick pleasures can be disastrous for all.

Roberto is a brooding teen living with his family in the suburbs of Buenos Aires. In the midst of his boredom, he begins a relationship with Raul, an older, divorced man with a dark past. In spite of Raul's violent sexual behavior, Roberto continues to see him, and the two form a bizarre relationship.

But the romance takes an even darker turn when Roberto meets another young man named Cesar, with whom he has a brief fling. Overcome with jealousy, Raul turns even more possessive an abusive towards Roberto and shows that his brutality can go further than Roberto might have ever imagined - perhaps even to the point of murder. In this darkly fascinating film festival hit, director Jose Celestino Campusano takes queer cinema in a bold new direction as he explores the destructive potential of love and jealousy.

"Twisted Romance" has played at numerous festivals, including London's Lesbian and Gay Film Festival, Euro Pride Festival, and NewFest, where it was met with positive reviews.

The NeverEnding Story (1984)

THE NEVERENDING STORY is a feat in fantasy filmmaking, truly one of the most incredible fantasy adventures ever made. The imaginative character designs and enchanting environments bring the world of Fantasia to life in amazing detail. Director Wolfgang Petersen employs an astonishing array of special effects, from life-like puppets to matte paintings and miniatures that meld together to give the film an epic look unlike any other. Although it is based in childhood fantasy, the film touches on many darker tones and twisted villains that, along with its haunting score, often make for a frightening viewing experience for younger audiences. A series of meaningful and memorable characters are introduced to fight the forces of darkness, characters who personify the values of courage (found in the brave warrior Atreyu), wisdom (shown by the ancient one, Morla), and valor (as seen in the self-sacrifice made by The Rockbiter and others). In the face of such heroism, the corruptive creature that is attempting to destroy this whimsical world fares no chance. On top of the High Fantasy elements the film possesses, it also delivers a powerful message against the death of imagination at the hands of apathetic parents and their disenchanted children. By frequently breaking the fourth wall, THE NEVERENDING STORY engages young Bastian as well as the viewing audience to enter the world of Fantasia and participate in the events as they unfold on screen right beside Atreyu and his companions, thereby saving all who live within this realm. THE NEVERENDING STORY holds a special place beside other timeless classics like THE WIZARD OF OZ, THE DARK CRYSTAL, and LABYRINTH.

Rating: 10/10.

Elevator (2011)

Take a ride to the Seventh Circle of Hell (otherwise known as sheer boredom) in Stig Svendsen's new Thriller: ELEVATOR. Nine strangers are left stranded in a high-rise elevator on their way to an elite party on Wall Street when one of them is discovered to have a bomb! ELEVATOR makes several flailing attempts at social significance, conveying weakened messages against racism, terrorism, and corporate greed that only serve to annoy rather than incite. Like DEVIL and BLACKOUT before it, ELEVATOR broadcasts its "twists" well in advance, leaving the audience to suffer through the poor performances and weakly-scripted melodrama with no surprises to show for them. The rest of the cast may have been slightly more tolerable were it not for Joey Slotnick's incessant behavior, which is reason enough to hit the 'Eject' button on this suspenseless Thriller. The Coen Brothers, this is not.

Rating: 5/10.

Movies like ELEVATOR:
BLACKOUT, DEVIL, BURIED, THE TERROR EXPERIMENT, FROZEN, OPEN WATER.

'Cougar Cult' Hits Redbox This July

COUGAR CULT
STRIKES DEAL WITH REDBOX

LOS ANGELES, CA – August 2, 2012 – Campy horror film Cougar Cult reuniting the original scream queens Linnea Quigley, Brinke Stevens and Michelle Bauer has found a settled into a delicious deal with dvd rental retailer Redbox . A July 31, 2012 release date has been set.

The trio of actresses rose to cult fame in the 1980s and 1990s by appearing a hefty number of campy b-movie confections with snappy titles like Nightmare Sisters and Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers. With demand high in “mom ‘n pop” video stores for product to simply fill consumer need, independent horror filmmakers found themselves in a boom they could barely keep up with. Quigley (The Return of the Living Dead), Stevens (The Slumber Party Massacre) and Bauer (The Tomb) were the sexpots who drove a generation of teenage boys wild with endless shower scenes, scuffles with men in rubber monster suits, and deadly oujia boards. 25 years after director David DeCoteau united them for his popular Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-o-Rama, he has regrouped the terrifying trifecta for Cougar Cult, an all-new campy horror-fest highly anticipated by the girls still-healthy fan base.

Cougar Cult follows Rufus (Ryan Curry), Darwin (Bryce Durfee), and Coopersmith (Jack Kubacki) - three nerdy, but hunky, young college dudes who score themselves a dream summer job working at a swanky estate. Little do they know that the owners, wealthy and sexy middle-aged babes Clara (Quigley), Victoria (Bauer), and Edwina (Stevens) actually are a coven of witches who transform into flesh-eating cougars in need of fresh young men in order to live eternally. With screamingly outrageous special FX and a script with its dialogue firmly tucked in its 80s-soaked cheek, Cougar Cult is a great rental successor to the former USA Up All Night crowd which devoured the actresses numerous titles during its heyday.

National retailer Redbox, which owns over 30,000 rental pods across America, has picked up Cougar Cult for DVD rental on July 31st and has already listed the title for reservations on its website at www.redbox.com. DeCoteau, himself iconic in the B-movie industry for his resume verging on 100 titles, knew it was time to bring the women back together following a reunion on the set of Screaming in High Heels (currently airing on NBCUniversal’s Chiller TV and due on Unrated DVD August 28, 2012). “These women continue to draw impressive crowds at horror film conventions,” he says. “Unlike many of those who tried to steal their thrones over the last two decades, they’re not only still gorgeous, but they’re all working more than ever in new films. The bonus is that now the guys who grew up enjoying them are sharing them with their kids. To cross over between generations is quite an impressive feat. I’m simply amazed at the anticipation surrounding their reunion in Cougar Cult. I honestly think it’s going to rank right on top with their other fan favorites.”

The actresses, DeCoteau and a group of their most common filmmakers will appear at a signing event at Dark Delicacies Book Store (www.darkdel.com) in Burbank, CA at 7 p.m. on August 29, 2012.
