Things To Know About ‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’


AHS FSHere are some things to know about the new season of ‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’. Thanks to the show’s Facebook page I am now informed and excited about the new season. Here is what I learned and what all ‘AHS’ fans should know: 1) The next season will be ‘Freak Show’ and gonna be filmed in New Orleans; 2) This is the last season of Jessica Lange on the show, and she’s practicing German accent; 3) Sarah Paulson is practicing a ” good skill ” for her character; 4) Michael Chiklis joins in the cast.

Okay so maybe we all already knew most of that but still a refresher isn’t so bad. Chiklis, who I am still on the fence about his joining the cast will be in proper company as Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Gabourey Sidibe, Frances Conroy, Emma Roberts, Jamie Brewer, Angela Bassett, Denis O’Hare have all signed on for ‘Freak Show’. And rumor has it that Connie Britton and Dylan McDermott are in negotiation with Ryan Murphy.

As events escalate, Cowen and his friends discover that the town has come under a mysterious malign influence which is somehow controlling organised gangs who are rounding people up and taking them to a nearby factory. The friends hide, hoping to escape, but their sanctuary is discovered and over run. Finally Cowen must make his way alone to the factory in search of his loved ones.

My Review Of “Aleister Crowley: Legend Of The Beast”


AC-LOTB“Aleister Crowley: Legend Of The Beast” is a biopic of sorts of the more spiritual journey of the legendary man of darkness, Aleister Crowley. The film is written/directed by Dom Lenoir and stars Henry Amphlett, Elle Black, Claire Bowen, Kathryn Carpenter, Melanie Denholme, Val Monk, Paul T. Horsfield, William Ludwig and Anna Elena Pepe. Aleister Crowley was a magnet to all, many were drawn to his presence and exceptional wisdom but there were also those that he repelled. This film looks back on one man's amazing journey from his death bed.

The story of “Aleister Crowley: Legend Of The Beast” is an easy one to tell, he is one of the most covered and documented men of the darker side of wisdom in modern history so this film should have been a sure thing. However it is not. The story presents as a rough draft from a community college drama club and is given an equal quality performance. I really wanted to like this film because of the subject so I was quite disappointed, most fell to the performances of the actors which are forced, recited lines without emotion or character.

The effects and soundtrack in “Aleister Crowley: Legend Of The Beast” is basic and expected effects for a film on this budget which was low. The special effects are equal to cable television aspects on the cheaper side with the soundtrack offering a mediocre, cliché atmosphere that seems to command more of a wearied effect than the desired dramatics that the director hoped for. I found myself bored with this film and aside from Denholme’s presence, “Legend Of The Beast” offers nothing thrilling, or entertaining.

Teaser Trailer For Thriller “Portal”


portalThe first teaser has been released for psychological thriller “Portal”. The film has a crowd funding campaign currently running on Indiegogo and follows an actor's preparation for a terrifying role. As reality and fantasy blurs, he finds himself lost between both worlds. “Portal” is directed by Steven Doxey and stars Brandon Sean Pearson, Kent Hadfield, Julia Fae, Benjamin Horatio Garvis, Chris Persky,Jane Noble and Elena Scarlett Murray.

1
“Portal” follows an actor who is cast as the lead in a bold, art-house film from a well known director. The Director’s film recreates the story of his father, who was captured and locked in a Siberian prison.

For the actor to accurately portray the director’s father, he chooses to go method. He isolates himself in a remote cabin, where he pores over script pages and keeps a diary of his thoughts. He lives in the skin of his character, he eats, sleeps, even begins to think like him. This pressure to play the role truthfully is increased ten-fold by the director’s militant perfectionism. Day by day, the actor begins to slowly transform into something out of his control. This metamorphosis has serious ramifications both on and off-set.

Pagan Festival Shout Out: Vinalia Priora

In its beginning, the Vinalia Priora was dedicated to honoring Jupiter. This is connected to the myth of the hero Aeneas, who promised Jupiter an offering of wines from Latium if he were to become victorious in a war against his enemies of different regions. Aeneas won the war, and therefore dedicated some of Latium's wine in Jupiter's name. This myth survived throughout the ages by the Romans people during the festival.

“Kill Zombie” Gets Blu-ray Love


Zombie film “Kill Zombie”, formally known as “Zombibi”, is getting some blu-ray love thanks to Well Go USA Entertainment. “Kill Zombie” is directed by Martijn Smits and Erwin van den Eshof. The horror/comedy hits American shelves on June 10, 2014 and I am amped about this one. There is something about zombie/comedies that I just enjoy…”Kill Zombie” stars Yahya Gaier, Ouled Radi and Gigi Ravelli, Sergio Hasselbaink and Uriah Arnhem. (source: HellHorror.com)

zombibi
“Kill Zombie” takes the zombie apocalypse to the Netherlands where survivors fight the undead on the streets of Amsterdam. A Russian Space station crashes in Amsterdam, releasing a deadly virus that turns everyday citizens into flesh-craving psychopaths. Aziz (Yahya Gaier), his brother Mo (Ouled Radi) and several strangers emerge from jail, oblivious to the mayhem until they team up with a local police officer (Gigi Ravelli). After receiving a desperate call for help, this unlikely band of heroes sets out on an insane rescue mission – and it’s going to take a seriously crazy plan if they want to get out alive…

Pagan Festival Shout Out: Walpurgis/Thrimilci


1Okay it isn’t quite April 30th yet but I put Walpurgis in my calendar on the 22nd as the 9 nights begin and start my ceremonial offerings to the gods for a prosperous spring, and protection from the coming darkness as we edge deep into the spring’s enveloping warmth. I place various tokens that symbolize the spring gifts the gods give us on my altar. It allows me to build up my thrill for Walpurgis Night. I also use this time from April 22 to April 30 to gather and form my pyre. As a solitary and only pagan member in my family it a lot quieter than the revelry of groups and large circle gatherings.

The festival of Walpurgis, a night both of revelry and darkness.  The nine nights of April 22 to April 30 are venerated as rememberance of the All Father's self-sacrifice upon the World Tree Yggdrasil.  It was on the ninth night (April 30, Walpurgisnacht) that he beheld the Runes, grasped them, and ritually died for an instant.  At that moment, all the Light in the 9 worlds is extinguished, and utter Chaos reigns.  At the final stroke of midnight, the Light returns in dazzling brilliance, and the bale-fires are lit.  On Walpurgisnacht, the dead have full sway upon the earth; it is the ending night of the Wild Hunt.  May 1 is the festival of Thrimilci; the beginning of Summer.  Thrimilci is a festival of joy and fertility, much like Ostara; however, most of the Northern World is finally escaping from the snow at this time.

The holiday is often celebrated with dancing and bonfires. It is exactly six months from All Hallows' Eve. Walpurgisnacht (Walburga’s Night / Walpurgis Night) is a popular Germanic holiday celebrated at the same time as Beltane. It has a colorful history which, from what I can find, dates from after the Christian conversion in Germany making it one of the few holidays that pagans might have adopted from a Christian festival, instead of vice versa.* Now famous for the bonfires that light the hills of Sweden, the champagne toasts in Finland, and the pranks of southern Germany it has been known as both a witch’s holiday and the feast day of a saint.

News Update For Indie Horror “Lucifer’s Angels” Plus Stills & Poster


LALucifer’s Angels” is an indie horror from ATK Films directed by Rick McDonald. I just received a news update on the film along with a couple of movie stills from Craig Surko, a member of the film’s production team. “Lucifer’s Angels” stars Theodore Bouloukos, Mikey McDonald, Ricky McDonald, Kayla Deguzman, Brian McDonald and Jason Michel.

"Lucifer's Angels" is a smart, refreshing horror film that pays homage to classic horror. A twisted film with a smart and intriguing plot. A group of friends go on their first camping trip together in the Catskill Mountains. Also, a ghost hunter from New York City and his fiance, travel to the same mountains hoping to research and record any paranormal phenomenon. All of them unknowingly entering into a world of evil. Meanwhile, a father and son who live in the eerie woods are forced to make life or death decisions. The story progresses as some of the friends start mysteriously disappearing, and wind up tortured and murdered in horrifying ways.




Here is what the updated news said about the film’s production and experiences:

1“The film was made on a very micro budget basically out of whatever we had in our pockets between 4 principal crew members whom are all family and 4 friends. And we believe we were able to create something very good! We all wore multiple hats, most actors played 2 roles, while being PA's....when someone was done shooting their take, they would jump in to hold the boom pole, or help move a light, etc... I just want people to know how much heart and soul was put into the production, and without everyone's dedication this film would never have been made.”

The update went on to say,“… the post production team has basically consisted of myself, although I’ve also had a friend come by to assist and be my "second eye" but that's about it. I’ve been, editing, recording foley (and ADR), sound editing, color correcting, and doing visual FX myself.”

“We originally wrote the script in 2009, shot some scenes in 2009 and the majority in 2010. We looked at what we had and were unsatisfied. We went back and rewrote 80% of the script, and scrapped all footage.We began reshooting summer 2011, and finished principal photography June 2012. All of this was completed, with everyone working full time jobs, so we'd shoot mostly on weekends here and there.”

 “Throughout the post production process I have met some wonderful talent and collaborators through the use of social media. We found our composer, audio engineer and mixer, original bands who want to donate music; all through social media sites. All of these new members of the production have never met, nor have I met them in person. However, we have been able to utilize the power of new technologies, such as Facetime, in order to set up spotting sessions, meetings, and interviews.”

“We also just recently recorded a 15 year old girl with a brilliant voice to provide some vocals on a piece our composer wrote. Although the composer (John DelVento) wasn't there in person, he was able to direct our singer (Emilee) through a FaceTime session. Great stuff.”
