“Samurai Cop 2: Deadly Vengeance” is the long-awaited sequel to the cult classic “Samurai Cop”. Stars Matt Hannon (Joe Marshall) and Mark Frazer (Frank Washington) return, alongside Melissa Moore (Peggy), Cranston Komuro (Fooj Fujiyama) and Gerald Okamura (Okamura) from the first film. Produced in 1991, the original “Samurai Cop”, directed by Amir Shervan, continues to find a new generation of captive and rabid audiences through its recent revival on the midnight theatrical circuit and in film festivals. The sequel “Samurai Cop 2: Deadly Vengeance” is set 25 years later, and Detective Frank Washington is forced to team up with his long estranged partner Joe Marshall to solve a series of assassinations. In addition to taking on their resurrected nemesis Fuj Fujiyama (Cranston Komuro), the duo must face a new generation of villains, including Dogge Sakamoto (Bai Ling) and the enigmatic Linton Kitano (Tommy Wiseau).
Tommy Wiseau and Dawna Lee Heising acted in a scene that was filmed in 35mm film. Film is very rare these days – Quentin Tarantino is shooting HATEFUL EIGHT on 70mm film and the new James Bond film is in 35mm film – so it’s awesome that Samurai Cop 2: Deadly Vengeance will include scenes shot in 35mm film!
The film also stars Kayden Kross, Cranston Komuro, Mel Novak, Laurene Landon, Nicole D’Angelo, Mindy Robinson, Nicole Bailey, Lexi Belle, Shane Ryan, Joe Estevez, Kristine DeBell, Lisa London, and Joselito Rescober.

Official Trailer For "Easter Sunday"

Official 2015 trailer released for "Easter Sunday last week but I missed it so I am posting about it now. Easter is still some time away but it is never to early for some holiday themed horror! "Easter Sunday" has its premiere on October 16th in Winchester, VA. at Bright Box Theater. 

Easter Sunday stars the late Robert Z'Dar (Manaic Cop), who passed away earlier this year. The film will be dedicated in his memory.
A throwback to the campy and gory slashers of the '80s, Easter Sunday is written and directed by Jeremy Todd Morehead. Along with Z'Dar and Morehead, the cast includes Ari Lehman (Friday the 13th), Edward X. Young (Mr. Hush) and Shawn C. Phillips (Ghost Shark).
"I am beyond thrilled that this goofy, bloody movie I've had in my head since I was 18 years old is about to premiere on the big screen at Four States Slasher Con," exclaims Morehead. "It has been an amazing ride, and I think what my crew and I pulled off with very little resources is rarely achieved from a movie of our size. Some people tried to convince me that it could not be done. Well, it's premiering on October 16. This has been a dream of mine for most of my life, and I am ecstatic over what we have accomplished with Easter Sunday."

It has been 24 years since the deranged serial killer Douglas Fisher was executed by police on Easter night. This year, a group of hard-partying teenagers not only raise some hell, but literally raise the dead! The teens accidentally conjure the spirit of Douglas Fisher... AKA the bunny masked killer! These teens have until midnight on Easter to stop the evil bunny slasher, or he will tear their town - and everyone in it - to pieces.

Release Details Announced For "The Badger Game"

Press Release:
The Badger Game, an award-winning indie thriller, is set to be homeward bound this fall. Currently available on Hulu, the film will make its Blu-ray and DVD debut on November 24, 2015, on Severin’s Intervision label. To up the ante, the release will feature commentary with the film’s actresses Augie Duke, Jillian Leigh, and Sasha Higgins. A second commentary will highlight the film’s writers/directors Thomas Zambeck and Josh Wagner as well as composer London May.
The Badger Game is a twisted tale about infidelity and extortion, taking viewers on a harrowing journey, galvanized by wicked humor, violence, lust, suspense, and unprecedented levels of cynicism.
Liam (Sam Boxleitner) is a successful advertising executive with money to burn and a healthy appetite for infidelity. Alex (Augie Duke) is his scorned mistress, hell-bent on revenge against the married man who wronged her. At first, the plan seemed simple: take Liam hostage and threaten to expose his indiscretion, lest he pay a healthy sum of money. But Alex knows she can’t do it alone. Enter her unhinged brother, Kip (Patrick Cronen), exotic dancer Jane (Sasha Higgins), and desperate wallflower Shelly (Jillian Leigh). With the table set and the team in place, Liam soon finds himself held against his will – his perfect world about to crumble. Forced to reckon with four mysterious captors and impossible odds, his only hope is to turn the quartet against each other and make it through the night alive.
