"The Selling" - Make An Offer If You Dare!

Directed by Emily Lou, from an original screenplay by Gabriel Diani, “THE SELLING” is a story about ghosts, demonic possession, and real estate. The supernatural comedy stars Gabriel Diani, Janet Varney, Jonathan Klein, Etta Devine, Nancy Lenehan, and Barry Bostwick.

Allen, Etta Devine, and John Friend. Emily Lou was the executive producer.

SYNOPSIS
Richard Scarry is too nice. He’s a real estate agent who tries to talk people out of buying houses they can’t afford. When his business partner Dave Ross comes up with a scheme to flip an old house for profit he only agrees because he needs to find a way to pay for his sick mother’s medical bills.
As Richard and Dave start fixing up the house for buyers it becomes obvious why their real estate nemesis Mary Best was so eager to pass the house along to them. Disembodied voices tell them to leave, walls bleed, and a portal to the spirit realm opens in an upstairs closet.  In short, the house is haunted.
Leveraged to the hilt, Richard must figure out a way to get rid of the house before its ghostly inhabitants ruin his life. He enlists the aid of his intimidating old Sunday school teacher Father Jimmy  to perform an exorcism and a Ghost Right’s Activist named Ginger Sparks to conduct a seance, each with disastrous results.
As the pressure mounts, Richard finds someone to take possession of the house. But when an evil spirit decides to move out of the house and into Richard’s body, he soon discovers he has a whole new set of possession problems.

Jake Epping is a thirty-five-year-old high school English teacher in Lisbon Falls, Maine, who makes extra money teaching adults in the GED program.

Harry escaped with a smashed leg, as evidenced by his crooked walk.

Not much later, Jake's friend Al, who runs the local diner, divulges a secret: his storeroom is a portal to 1958. He enlists Jake on an insane—and insanely possible—mission to try to prevent the Kennedy assassination. So begins Jake’s new life as George Amberson and his new world of Elvis and JFK, of big American cars and sock hops, of a troubled loner named Lee Harvey Oswald and a beautiful high school librarian named Sadie Dunhill, who becomes the love of Jake's life—a life that transgresses all the normal rules of time.

There are five characters, which are still uninfected, trying to survive constant attacks by the infected. each one of them represents in some way a different aspect of human existence, a different world-view, but most important, a different moral view about the world and his/her place in it -

The Colonel - A professional soldier. represents the political-military-economic establishment, which sees life as a constant violent struggle for power and resources.

The Doctor - Represents a commitment to love, justice and non-violent struggle against all wrong.

The Wizard - A young man, an inventor and an autodidact scientist, who looks at life as a puzzle to be solved. he strives to discover, understand and invent, with no thought as to the consequences.

The Daughter - A simple girl with simple ambitions - sailing through life enjoying every comfort, while ignoring or unaware of bigger and more profound issues.

The Mouser - A murderer and rapist, evil in the most banal aspect of the word.

all along, as the characters evolve, they listen to a daily radio program dealing with the extinction of the dinosaurs, finding correlating themes to their own situation. as the protagonists move and try to survive, and as their world views and correlations to the situation are gradually reveled, the following themes are explored: the essence of evil, the boundaries of moral responsibility, species (and humankind) extinction, love, grace, euthanasia and more.



"Another World" will be ready for release in 3rd Quarter of 2011 in time for Festivals and Distribution.

Alma Katsu Website! 




   Dr. Luke Findley is on the midnight shift in the emergency room when the police bring in a young woman. Few strangers come to this remote town in northernmost Maine in the winter, and this stranger is accused of a bizarre crime: killing a man and leaving his body in the Great North Woods. The young woman, Lanny, tells the doctor that she and the man in the woods lived in this town at its founding two hundred years ago, until fate sentenced them to an eternity of unhappiness until they atone for their sins.
The man in the woods is Jonathan, son of the town's founder, and the love of Lanny's life. After Lanny commits a terrible sin in the hope of claiming Jonathan for her own, she's banished from town and sent to Boston to serve her penance. In Boston, she falls in with a beguiling yet frightening man, Adair, who has otherworldly powers, including the ability to confer immortality. His world is one of unknown sensual pleasures and seemingly limitless power, but at what price?
  
   Adair wants to add Jonathan to the collection of treacherous courtiers who do his bidding (but for unknown ends) and sends Lanny back to Maine to collect him. It seems like the answer to Lanny's deepest desire—to be with Jonathan forever—but once Jonathan has joined Adair's pack of immortals, she sees that Adair is not what he seems and his intentions toward Jonathan are far worse than she imagined. And now it is up to her to save her beloved—and herself—from a terrible fate designed to last for all eternity.

U.S. Red Band Trailer for "A Serbian Film" -The Controversy hits Stateside

A Serbian Film hits theatres on May 13th. This film has caused controversy at every film festival it played and has also garnished some good reviews and staunch supporters. I have not seen much other than publicity releases and trailers and pics. I am gonna say that it probably will be offensive to some people. I thought Hostel was a bit unnerving and also a great nail biting film! I'm bi-polar. I also loved and held slight contempt for "I Spit On Your Grave", so pretty sure that the same response will happen when I see "A Serbian Film. I believe that the director Srdjan Spasojevic intent is to make the audience feel every emotion full force, I also believe that it is probably gonna have a deeper disturbing social statement about us all as a human society. Hopefully it will wake people up and see there hearts are still beating plus scare the shit out of us!

Synopsis:
An aging porn star agrees to participate in an "art film" in order to make a clean break from the business, only to discover that he has been drafted into making a pedophilia and necrophilia themed snuff film.

HBO gives us "American Gods" Maybe?!

HBO is in negotiations to acquire another fantasy property, “American Gods”, the Hugo and Stoker Award winning novel from acclaimed writer Neil Gaiman. At the moment the plan is for Gaiman to co-write the pilot with Robert Richardson, the cinematographer of films like “Hugo Cabaret”, “Inglorious Basterds”, and “Kill Bill”.

“American Gods”
lays out a battle between two sets of gods. One consists of the traditional gods and mythological creatures who got their power because people throughout history believed in them. They are losing steam as people’s beliefs wane and are in danger of being supplanted by a new set of gods who reflect America’s preoccupation with technological advancements and obsessions with media, celebrity, technology and drugs. The protagonist is an ex-con who becomes the traveling partner of a conman who turns out to be one of the older gods trying to recruit troops to battle the upstart deities.
