Check out the trailer for Painted Creek's noir thriller "Abeyance". The film is a sci-fi indie pic directed by Harley Wallen and stars Richard Tyson, Billy Wirth and Scout Taylor-Compton a Harley Wallen Film with Erika Hoveland, Damien Chinappi, Shane Hagedorn, Angelina Danielle Cama, Harley Wallen ,Ken Alter, Yan Birch, Mel Novak, Vida Ghaffari, and Calhoun Koenig. 

After helping to create a revolutionary invention with great implications Bridget (Erika Hoveland), finds a character flaw in the company they’ve partnered with to develop the prototype that could be the fountain of youth. When she pulls the plug and ties to step away from their original deal, she immediately realizes they will stop at nothing to get it back. After her family gets kidnapped to sway a favorable vote, their hopes rely on their teen daughter Miranda (Angelina Cama) and her unlikely allies, Corey (Damien Chinappi), a suicidal military veteran and Stephanie, (Kaiti Wallen), a prostitute. 

I believe with Abeyance we will take everything to a new level and I feel I really hit the jackpot with my cast! The subject matter is incredibly timely and story is my best to date and I could tell my cast was very inspired and all brought their A-Game! Life everlasting, the holy grail, the fountain of youth has always been intriguing but as technology advancements move at such an incredible pace and almost feels within our grasps, what will we do when we reach that point?” said Harley Wallen.

James Quinn Unveils First Teaser for "Daughter Of Dismay"


Sodom & Chimera Productions has revealed the first tease for Daughter of Dismay, the first narrative short to be shot in 70mm IMAX.  The film will be an epic, moving and emotional trip through a world of witchcraft and occultism, focusing on a different kind of witch than usually portrayed in media, one that doesn't focus on cliched depictions of devil worship, but on a much deeper and more human side.

Directed by arthouse horror veteran James Quinn (Flesh of the Void, The Temple of Lilith) and produced by Justin Schenck (Swordfish, Fox's "The Exorcist"), Daughter of Dismay included behind the scenes talent including composer Joseph Bishara (The Conjuring, Insidious, Annabelle), Kodak award-winning director of photography Ben Brahem Ziryab (The Negative, Room for Rent), sound engineer Steve Maslow (The Empire Strikes Back, The Thing, Beetlejuice) and foley artist Martin Langenbach (The Perfume, The Autopsy of Jane Doe, Goodnight Mommy). 

Of the new short, Quinn said, "There's a certain magic about seeing something on actual film on the big screen, especially in 70mm. I was always extremely interested in this epic aspect of movies, where you don't just go to watch something, but actually experience the entire movie to a point that's almost physical, as part of a spectacle that evokes greater feelings than just simple entertainment. As a big fan of horror cinema, I wanted to combine this experience that 70mm and 70mm IMAX brings with occult and horror elements, something that's very unusual for this format, something that I think is very exciting."

Konstantakopoulos (BEFORE MIDNIGHT, THE LOBSTER), Keith and Jess Calder (ANOMALISA, BLAIR WITCH, YOU’RE NEXT), and Legion M, the world’s first fan-owned entertainment company (MANDY, JAY AND SILENT BOB REBOOT).
