“The Dinner Guest” Meets Crowd Funding Goal



TDGposterNight Walker Cinema’s first feature film “The Dinner Guest” has met it’s crowd funding goal. With less than 8 hours to go the project surpassed it’s target on Indiegogo. “The Dinner Guest” is a suspense thriller from indie filmmakers Joseph Dean Martinez and James Neff who formed the production company Night Walker. After producing two short films the duo have moved to the next logical step – into feature films. “The Dinner Guest” is considered to be dark and brooding. The story follows a young couple’s plans for a special evening are suddenly interrupted by an unexpected visitor. Already the film has special effects being provided by Syfy alumni Eric Fox. Check out the promo teaser for “The Dinner Guest” below.






Oh Chucky How You Tease!



CurseofChuckyThe biggest sequel news, that has been running wild with sinewy goodness lately, has been all the hype around “Curse Of Chucky”.  The film has been “in the making” for a good minute now but it seems since the first whisper everything has been simply speculated. When the first mentioning of this project coming to fruition hit the web it was under the shadow of rumor. Thrilled is what I was when that bit was officially confirmed. The most that has come lately – up until these past several weeks- was that it was happening-production notes-cast member updates and progress reports. Now it seems that more word is oozing out the dark regions of Chuckyverse. Not only word but vision. Beautifully cryptic vision in the form of production stills and behind the scene shots. All of which started when young miss Fiona Dourif posted a shot on her Instagram of the soundtrack. Incidentally that gave us our first ominous glimpse at the new Chucky.

What is the point of this seemingly ramble of mine? Well there is no point-only the fact that now after several days of stills and news I am fucking super amp’d about this flick. But when will we see this “next nightmare” in the world of Chucky vision.?! Well that to lives under the shadow of rumor and whisper. It more than likely will happen September 24th but that is not confirmed… not officially anyways. It hasn’t actually been truly denied yet either. Anyway that bit of uncertainty only heightens  my already throbbing jones for this film. Plus there have been these cool and creepy but never revealing images coming from the set of “Curse Of Chucky”. Check them out for yourself. I for one am hoodoo’d by Charles Lee Ray’s little dolly voodoo. “Curse of Chucky” is directed by Don Mancini and stars –not only Fiona Dourif but also- A Martinez, Danielle Bisutti, Brennan Elliott, and Brad Dourif.

Nica (Fiona Dourif) is grieving over the gruesome suicide of her mother when her domineering older sister Barb (Danielle Bisutti) arrives with her young family in tow to help settle their mother’s affairs. As the sisters butt heads over Nica’s plans for the future, Barb’s young daughter comforts herself with a grinning, red-haired talking doll named Chucky (voiced again by Brad Dourif) that recently arrived mysteriously in the mail. But as a string of brutal murders begins to terrorize the household, Nica suspects the doll may hold the key to the bloodshed. What she doesn’t know is that Chucky has a personal score to settle. He’s determined to finish a job he started more than 20 years earlier, and this time he’s going to see it through to the bloody and shocking end.

Tony Moran Signs On For “Dead Bounty”



tony-moran-2Horror icon Tony Moran stars in the upcoming film “Provoked” directed by Jordan Pacheco. I have an interview coming up with the legend-which will mark my first ever podcast-Kind of nervous about that. It will be my first time coming close “even if it is virtual” to Michael Myers and I don’t want to die! ; )  Anyway besides the paranormal thriller mentioned Moran has signed on for the second feature from “Provoked” production company Lock it Down Productions. The film is titled “Dead Bounty”. Read the details in the press release below. 


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 15, 2013
RE: Horror Feature staring Tony Moran - “Dead Bounty”
The team behind the much anticipated independent horror feature, “Provoked” (due to premiere Fall 2013), has a new horror feature in the works. Lock it Down Productions is excited to announce, “Dead Bounty” which will begin filming in the Fall of 2013.

“Dead Bounty”, Directed by Jordan Pacheco and Produced by David Langill, will star horror icon Tony Moran. Moran is best known for playing Michael Myers in John Carpenter's horror classic “Halloween” “Dead Bounty” follows a group of bounty hunters as they head into a vast New England forest in hopes to capture a dangerous fleeing felon. Closing in on their quarry, the group encounters more than just a murderer on the run when they are confronted with a seemingly endless horde of the undead. With no shelter, no help and no end to the carnage, survival seems hopeless.

Also Tony Moran is working on a documentary titled “Life of a Horror Icon: Tony Moran” which I have been told will be a very staunch look at the legend’s life. Stating to Langill that “nothing was off limits”. October 2013 marks the thirty-fifth anniversary of “Halloween” and Moran is as busy as ever. During the Fall, besides filming, Moran will be making several personal appearances throughout the New England area.

Chilling Provocations Of Paranormal Piques: My Interview With Actress Kati Salowsky



kati salowskyKati Salowsky is – well – a hottie! With the charm of a truly grounded young woman and the features of a focused young Heather Locklear, with a bit of Indie scream queen Jessica Cameron thrown in, this budding actress is well on her way to solidifying a strong career. Kati has put in a fierce amount of time building a pretty buff resume. From print to television she seems to be well on her way to reaching her goals and dreams of acting. Kati told me in our recent interview that she can vividly remember being 3 years old and standing in front of her family-belting out the Disney standards. She has a theatre foothold so I am guessing she has the chops to cohere those “little princess” classics. Acting has always been the brightest star shining in this Massachusetts native's horizon. I venture to say that “Provoked” will prove that desire. “Provoked” isn’t the first horror trip that Kati Salowsky has taken, the actress also stars in the film "Gleam" with Sean Carmichael as well as "House Across The Street" with Eric Roberts and Ethan Embry. Not to mention the dark thriller “Mary Loss Of Soul” which is in post-production as well.

In Jordan Pacheco’s “Provoked”, also in post-production, Kati Salowsky plays paranormal investigator-Alexis- an assured, contemplative person whose determination is apropos to her friends-and the people she helps-well being. The film is a very intense paranormal thriller structured on a script that all involved contend to be a very chilling story. In my interview with Kati Salowsky we discuss her character in “Provoked”, her interest in the paranormal among other things. I have to say this Boston girl is a very interesting actress with a promising future-and oh as I said before – for all horror ghouls out there-she is a hottie.

ASouthernLife: In "Provoked" you play Alexis one of the paranormal investigators who takes it very serious, can you tell me a little more about the character and her relationship to the other investigators on the team?
Kati Salowsky: Alexis is focused primarily on the job at hand. Unfortunately, she is constantly distracted by her ex boyfriend who also happens to be on the paranormal team. This makes investigating a bit more difficult for her. She is, however, compassionate and cares strongly for the families that are affected by spirits and also for the rest of her coworkers always looking out for them.


ASouthernLife:  What did you most relate to about the character and how did you prepare for the role?
Kati Salowsky: I absolutely LOVE paranormal television shows. I watch almost every single show that's currently on TV--I find it fascinating! It wasn't hard for me to prepare for the role because it's (in reality) a position I've always wanted to be in!

ASouthernLife: How has it been learning all the techniques used for ghost hunting while filming?
Kati Salowsky: I knew what the equipment was that we were working with and also its purpose...but it was my first time really using it. It was cool to finally be investigating!

ASouthernLife:  How does it feel filming in the Lizzie Borden house and have you had any "experiences" on set or while hanging out in the house?
Kati Salowsky: Ugh. The Borden house creeped me the eff out. As soon as I walked in I had a weird feeling about it. The house just felt eerie. Our stunt coordinator, Anthony, wanted to give me a tour of the place--and I reluctantly agreed. After about 60 seconds of starting the tour I ran back downstairs because it was too scary for me!! I may love paranormal shows...but I'm such a wimp!!

ASouthernLife: In the story the team uses "questionable" methods to draw out the spirits in order to get evidence. How does your character feel about this decision?

Kati Salowsky: She hates it. Haha. She knows that provoking spirits is a bad sign. You'll see how she immediately realizes the danger in the film by her reactions to such methods.

ASouthernLife: Are there any scenes in the movie that your character is in that make you nervous? Every cast member says that the script is really scary.
Kati Salowsky: The script IS scary! They're right about that! There is a scene in particular that Alexis is in which gives me chills...but you'll have to see it to know what I'm talking about!

kati salowsky 2
ASouthernLife: This isn't your first time doing horror you have two others in different stages of production. Where you a big horror fan growing up and who is your favorite Scream Queen?

Kati Salowsky: Yes, I have done some horror films prior to working on Provoked. But honestly, horror films really do scare me! They are fun to play, but when I watch them I'm always the girl hiding behind her hands peeking through her fingers! Like I said before...giant wimp!! So I can't say I have any favorites--I was always to scared to figure it out!

ASouthernLife: What is your hometown and where do you call home now?
Kati Salowsky: I grew up in Chelmsford, Ma, but now I call Boston my home. No matter where I end up...I'll always be a Boston girl at heart :)

ASouthernLife:  Growing up did you know of a lot of haunted places in your town, if so did you ever explore them?
Kati Salowsky: There was one street "Dudley Road" in Billerica. The story was that there was a nunnery that had some rouge-nuns-turn-witch. The nuns were supposedly hung for their evil behavior. It is said that when you drive down Dudley Road weird things will happen. Example: If you stop the car under a certain tree it will have difficulty starting up again...and lights to one particular house will turn on and off. Odd things. My friends and I would drive down to see if anything would ever happen, but (being the wimp I am) never stuck around long enough to find out!


ASouthernLife: What is the scariest ghost story that you have ever heard?
Kati Salowsky: Possessions are the scariest BY FAR. Lorraine Warren (Demonologist) came to give a lecture at my college during Halloween once. She showed us pictures and told us stories of things she had seen during her investigations. The scariest stories were always of demons and their possessions. Ugh. Chills just thinking about it.

ASouthernLife: Who in the cast do you think would be the most scared by an encounter with a ghost?
Kati Salowsky: SEAN CARMICHAEL. Sorry, Sean...love ya, but.....its true--besides me of course...;)

New Poster Released For “Reunion” Thriller



reunionI just received a new poster that has been released for the up coming thriller “Reunion” . The project is currently seeking production support at Indiegogo.
Reunion is an independent thriller/horror film spearheaded by a diverse team of professional industry veterans.

It's a cold, stormy and thunderous night. Trapped in his own home, former rock stars Brad Norton and Grant Foley prepare for the return of their infamous band when a strange woman, Mia, shows up at their door looking for her son she calls "Alan." Unbeknownst to them, she is guided by a dark spirit and is convinced Brad kidnapped her long-lost son.

The filmmakers have assembled an experienced crew from Emmy-award winning TV shows, studios such as Lionsgate, and feature films such as "Pirates of the Caribbean," "Star Trek: Into Darkness," and "The Dark Knight." Starting with a rock solid screenplay written by Bert Havird and led by Producer Thelonius Alexander and Director Shawn Chou, the philosophy of the filmmakers was to look for undiscovered talent that wouldn’t break the bank. After laboring through months of casting, they recruited talented up-and-coming actors Sarah Schreiber, Cara Santana, Reign Morton, Arielle Brachfeld and Leif Gantvoort. The independent movie also features a young heartthrob Jack Turner in his debut as well as veteran actor-producer Maria Olsen, who plays Mia, who is best known for her role as Mrs Dodds/The Fury in Fox’s “Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief”.

“We rely on our team’s passion and dedication to bring our vision to life,” says Shawn. “The most important thing is to tell a story about a ghost who tries to reunite his lookalike twin with this mysterious murderer. It’s filled with twists and turns. Ultimately, we ask tough questions about why people repress their memories to cope with life.”

Jack adds, “It's an incredibly interesting relationship to investigate with all its myriad complexities, amnesia, abuse and sexual tensions, and Maria is wonderful to act with.”

The film has plans for theatrical distribution and aims to break new boundaries in the thriller/horror genre. And why not? They have a great script, cast, crew, and an established formula in place. Join Team Reunion on their journey.

Reunion is raising $75,000.

Nightmare In Tina Land: A Photo Blog Of The Death Of Tina Gray

nightmare on elm street stills

Nightmare In Tina Land is a photo blog of the dead of Tina Gray. Tina was played by Amanda Wyss. She was the very first fatality of Freddy’s diabolic war on the children of Elm Street. Poor Tina – don’t you know that everybody has nightmares. The key is not to die! Tina’s nightmares where a dark journey down a blood soaked rabbit hole. Unfortunately for this little “Alice” Wonderland is made of fire and blades filled with the sounds of death.

nightmare on elm street 2
nightmare on elm street 1
“I only dream in a brilliant white” -In Eastern cultures, white is associated with death and mourning.  Tina starts in a beautiful white environment but it isn’t a symbol of her clean pure bliss. She is moving away from the white serenity toward her fate. This is an omen for Tina Gray- to dream of such a bright white- It sings of death. Tina should have never went back to sleep. The poor child should be held up in some run down trailer park chasing the dragon and rambling of the burnt man with knives for fingers. Still singing 1-2 Freddy’s coming for you – but not me!
nightmare on elm street 3
nightmare on elm street 4
Dreaming of a long corridor or hallway symbolizes the journey that one is one it the waking life. As Tina steps from her omen of white she finds herself walking down this very path to her future. A future that is dark, shadowy and full of uncertainty. Oh Tina-go back into the light!!!
nightmare on elm street 5
The lamb is a marker of innocence. Considering it too is in the dark corridor and fleeing shows that innocence is lost or is in transition. This is a very critical and dangerous time for the spirit-many things wait just beyond innocence to devour the naïve wanderer. Once there was a lamb as white as snow, it played- it sang- it’s fleece was gold, ah but soon this lamb did lose it’s way, the devil came to stay and stole it’s soul!
nightmare on elm street 6
nightmare on elm street 7
Tina flees the omens of the white light surrounding her and the dark corridor, far from the little lamb, only to find herself disoriented within the damp confines of an old industrial building. She herself is somewhat lost and confused-trying to stay connected to herself. The fact that she seems to be fleeing from some one in her dream shows the fear of not knowing what the future holds. It holds death Tina!!!!!
nightmare on elm street9
nightmare on elm street 8
nightmare on elm street 10
To find yourself dreaming of such fiery surroundings is a clear warning against current behaviors that may be risky or dangerous. To dream of a bad man means that someone is feeling a little guilty about recent actions. Maybe getting laid wasn’t such a good idea after all. Or maybe it is a feeling that someone around you is not a good person and could be leading you down a wrong path. Either way it is a real fuck-all moment. Tina ran from her pursuer but she couldn’t run from her dreams. Freddy do love a lost child! A but fortunately for Tina she survived that night’s frightful dreamfest!
nightmare on elm street 11
nightmare on elm street 12
Poor Tina why did you have to go and fall asleep again! Now you got someone tapping at your window on a night when the air is blue. The fact that Tina is dreaming of a someone outside her window shows clear signs of not feeling to optimistic about her current state of affairs or future journey. The window actually being broke screams omen. It means that bad things are ahead, tread lightly or take a moment to decide if this particular journey is worth traveling at all. Oh Tina don’t go outside!
nightmare on elm street 13
nightmare on elm street 14
Facing the bad man. Poor Tina is forced to confront the dark side of path in the form of a psycho killer- a horribly burnt man with knives as fingers! These are your God now Tina. You have gone too far on this reckless path and sadly you must now die. 1-2 Freddy has done came for you!
nightmare on elm street 15
Ah to be attacked in our dreams. It is not a good thing. It symbolizes an emotional flux. This are no longer balanced and we struggle between who we where and who we are to become. The key to take control of the attacker and not let them win. Sadly there is no kung-fu awakening in Tina. She is defenseless against her fears. Don’t worry though Tina soon Freddy will take all that hurt and pain away!
nightmare on elm street 16
nightmare on elm street 17
nightmare on elm street 18
The Death Of Tina Gray! This “Alice” never survived her journey through the rabbit hole, her adventures in Wonderland or the struggle to get back home. Freddy came, Tina screamed and the blood flowed. A lot of blood flowed. It soaked the room. It is never coming out of those sheets and you might as well plan on buying some new wallpaper as well!

Del Toro Talks Jaegers In New Featurette



jaegers
Jaeger- first I think shots which result in embarrassing behavior followed by mind splitting headaches but then I think of giant robots kicking some monstrous alien ass!

Guillermo Del Toro discusses the concept behind the Jaegers in new featurette for “Pacific Rim”. The influences and passions of his childhood surrounding anime, along with the desire he has to bring into into modern live action for the west. Normally we have to turn to our Asia-Pacific genre brothers for kick ass mecha stuff-which is where I was introduced to this element of sci-fi as a kid. Check out the new featurette below. Del Toro is a testament to the fact that a genre fan doesn’t have to pick on single area to live and breathe. His ability to portray wonderful stories in fantasy, horror and sci-fi are inspiring and affirming.

“Pacific Rim” opens in 3D IMAX and standard theatres on July 12th and stars harlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, Ron Perlman, Robert Kazinsky, Max Martini, Clifton Collins, Jr., Burn Gorman, Larry Joe Campbell, Brad William Henke and Diego Klattenhoff.

In the near future, giant monsters identified as "Kaiju" have risen from a portal in a crevasse beneath the Pacific Ocean, resulting in a war which takes millions of lives and quickly consumes humanity's resources. To combat this new threat, a special type of weapon is designed: massive robots, known as Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. As time passes, even the powerful Jaegers prove almost defenseless in the face of a relentless enemy. On its last stand and on the verge of defeat, the remaining defending forces of mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes—a former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)—and the weapon they are teamed to pilot; a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the early trials of the mechanical titans. Together, man, woman and machine must stand as the human race’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.

First Teaser For “Eat”



Eat-PosterCheck out the teaser trailer for the indie flick “Eat”. The existential psycho melodrama that flows into  dark satirical social commentary is directed by Jimmy Weber and stars Meggie Maddock, Ali Frances, Jeremy Make, Maru Garcia and Dakota Pike. The film plays heavy with the macabre. Based on the trailer it will be like watching the tragedy of a life in a horrific downward spiral. Can’t wait!

Novella McClure is like most struggling actresses in Los Angeles: she’s in her early 30s, her fake name sounded cooler ten years ago, and she hasn’t landed a role in three years.  To top it all off, she’s developed a disturbing habit of eating her own flesh.  Novella desperately tries to hide her strange condition from her motherly landlord, Eesha, and somewhat psychopathic best friend, Candice, but her body and mind continue to deteriorate in the depressing world of failed auditions and sketchy night clubs.  Can a romantic relationship with her psychiatrist prevent her from self destruction?  Or will her fatal habit continue to eat away at her?

My Review Of “Alien Crash At Roswell: The Truth Lost In Time”



alien crashThe documentary “Alien Crash At Roswell: The Truth Lost In Time” comes from Reality Entertainment and is narrated by ‘Ancient Aliens’ Philip Coppens. This documentary focuses on Major Jessie Marcel whom discovered the crash that is now the epitome of Alien conspiracy references.  Roswell will never fade as it represents the true ushering in of the UFO phenomenon for time immemorial. “Alien Crash At Roswell” seeks deeper knowledge and understanding of the ordeal and situation that surrounded Mercel who became a scapegoat over the following controversy about the truth of the crash. In early July, 1947 Major Jesse Marcel, commander of the most technologically advanced bomb group in the world, discovered the crash site of a downed UFO in the New Mexico desert following a harrowing and record breaking storm.

Documentaries are rather biopic and walk a fine line between actual enlightenment against the marketable value of entertainment. Whether or not “Alien Crash At Roswell: The Truth Lost In Time” offers anything new to the mythos of the Roswell crash or rather anything new to Jesse Marcel’s story is something that I could not define. I love Alien and UFO conspiracies and stories but I am not a major buff when it comes to the multitude of information surrounding such topics. I can say that what info I gathered from this documentary was knowledge that I already heard from many other documentaries about the incident or people involved. I can say that it was entertaining as most documentaries about Aliens and UFO’s is to me. I enjoyed the added interviews from Marcel’s family members, most notably the descendants that bare his name.  After viewing this documentary I still don’t know if anything really new was discovered or if it adds to the collection of info already out there. Philip Coppens is fun to watch and his enthusiasm is obvious. He is someone that I have become familiar with through the television series that he is attached to- ‘Ancient Aliens’.  Check “Alien Crash At Roswell” out if you are a die hard follower of everything Roswell, but for the random viewer with basic intrigue, I can not say whether or not this docu is a must see.

Official Trailer Released For “The Demented”



demented“The Demented” will be released July 30th 2013. The film is directed by Christopher Roosevelt and stars Kayla Ewell, Richard Kohnke, Ashlee Brian, Brittney Alger. Anchor Bay has released the official trailer for the horror film. Check it out below.

The Demented follows six college friends as they meet up for a carefree weekend in a beautiful rural home. A terrorist missile attack in a nearby town infects much of the townspeople with a deadly virus that induces rabies-like symptoms...with devastating consequences. Ravenous and fast, the infected townspeople turn their sights on the vacation home where the friends are gathered...and are now barricaded. How long can they hide? Even with the infected “sleeping” in the streets, can they make their escape? If so, to what?
