coyote cover artPress Release:

Wild Eye Releasing has announced the December 16th DVD release of film festival favorite Coyote. Hailed as “wickedly brilliant” (A Bucket of Corn), “an amazingly bold first time feature” (Film Bizarro), and “a visceral assault on the senses” (Horror Movies.Ca), Coyote has been a hit on the festival circuit, taking home awards for Best Feature as well as Best Actor for star Bill Oberst Jr. The DVD release of Coyote will be available nationwide (SRP $14.95).

An aspiring writer with insomnia descends into a world of madness and serial killing violence as he is torn between what is real and what has crawled from the darkest recesses of his mind – making him a threat to everyone around him, and most of all himself. A nightmarish, psychological horror that blends Taxi Driver with Videodrome, Coyote features a career-making performance from horror favorite Bill Oberst Jr.

The DVD release of Coyote will exclusively include three feature length commentaries: one with Bill Oberst, one with director Trevor Juenger, and one with cinematographer, as well as the short film Trash Man.

Check Out The First Images Of Megafoot


Megafoot artworkVito Trigo has released images giving us our first look at his Megafoot. Thankfully it isn’t a CG creature trying so desperately to be a real little monster. I have been keeping up with this film, “Megafoot”, since the Indiegogo days, the poster with the massive cryptid standing tall over his surroundings-slightly reminiscent of Chewbacca in some of the Star Wars promo stuff from my childhood, (only in stature and poise), mostly the creature dominating the poster is a bizarre blend of machine and Foot, My interest was peaked. So glad to see quality creature effects that are created practically.

A highly classified experiment accidentally unleashes a top secret killing machine known as MEGAFOOT. Part Cyborg, Part Bigfoot. All Terror. And now it's up to an elite squad of soldiers to track down the beast and kill it before it destroys everyone and everything in its path. A married couple, a group of college students, the scientists who know the truth, and some not-too friendly locals are about to confront their worst nightmare in this action-packed, horror thriller, gore-ride that's bigger than big - It's MEGAFOOT.

DVD Release Details For “Muck”


Anchor Bay has announced the release date for Steve Wolsh’s “Muck”. The DVD/Blu-ray will hit shelves on St. Patrick’s Day 2015. Read the full press release details below.

MuckThis St. Patrick’s Day, Anchor Bay Entertainment invites fans for a little bit’o the green and a LOT of the red with MUCK, a chiller seething with the greatest fear of all: that nowhere is safe! The directorial debut of Steve Wolsh, who also wrote and produced, MUCK reads like a bloody love letter filled with just the sort of jolts horror fans have been waiting to hear – and see!

Shot in state-of-the-art 4K Ultra HD resolution, MUCK is packed with old-school effects, shocks – and yes, breasts – that stick with you, creating terror with effects and stunts without the use of CGI. MUCK arrives Tuesday, March 17th – uncut, uncensored, and unrated – available on Blu-ray™ for $26.99 and $22.98 for the DVD. Pre-book on February 11th.

For fans who like their 4K horror on the big screen, MUCK will also have a limited theatrical engagement starting Friday, March 13th.

After narrowly escaping an ancient burial ground, long forgotten and buried underneath the marshes of Cape Cod, a group of friends emerge from the thick, marshy darkness, tattered and bloody, lucky to be alive. They have already lost two of their friends in the marsh, presumably dead. They stumble upon an empty Cape Cod vacation house alongside the foggy marsh and break in to take shelter. Whatever was in the marsh is still after them and soon after one of them goes for help, the rest of the group learns that the evil in the marsh is not the only thing that wants them dead. Something worse, something more savage, was lying in wait just outside the marsh, in the house. What happens next is unspeakable horror that cannot be unseen. These unlucky travelers spend their St. Patrick’s Day trapped between two evils forcing them to fight, die, or go back the way they came.

Featuring Kane Hodder (Hatchet, Jason Voorhees in four of the Friday the 13th films), Lachlan Buchanan (“Pretty Little Liars”), Puja Mohindra (Foreign), Bryce Draper (Bound) and YouTube Sensation Lauren Francesca (iwantmylauren), MUCK is throwback horror at its best.






First Images Released For “Mania” NSFW

mania posterThe first images have been released for Jessica Cameron’s “Mania”. The NSFW stills offer up the visceral, gory vision of Cameron’s latest project. Read the press release below and feast on the grue below.


Press Release:
The triple feature, cross-country road movie extravaganza has completed principal photography. Producer Mem Ferda and executive producers Jessica Cameron and Jonathan Scott Higgins announced that all three projects (feature films MANIA and Desolation, along with documentary Kill the PA) are in post production. The producers were kind enough to pass along some unreleased stills from the set of MANIA.

MANIA marks the 2nd feature to be directed by Scream Queen Jessica Cameron from a script written by Jonathan Scott Higgins. Desolation was the first film to be completed while traveling cross-country and Kill the PA is the behind the scenes documentary that chronicled the making of both horror features. 

The passionate group of independent filmmakers all piled into an RV and shot all three features while traveling to California, Nesw Mexico, Texas, Kansas, Tennessee, Ohio, Alabama, and Arizona.

Some of the filming locations the cast and crew utilized were houses, abandoned towns, shady motels in the middle of nowhere, and the beautiful desert landscape of Arizona. In fact, while filming a death scene in the Arizona desert, FOUR cop cars showed up claiming that they received a call the team was shooting pornography. When director/executive producer Cameron explained it was a horror film, the Tucson Sheriffs became disappointed and quickly left.

More information about the project can be found on the film’s website:www.killtheproductionassistant.com.

When asked about the completion of principal photography, Cameron had this to say:
“I am so excited to have completed principle photography on these films. They were certainly a challenge but it’s amazing what we accomplished. I cannot wait to bring these films to the fans! I have a feeling that they will love them as much as I do. MANIA is as sexy as Truth Or Dare was violent so please be cautious when looking at any images/videos/content as it will majorly be NSFW.”

My Review Of “Blood Lake: Attack Of The Killer Lampreys”


blood lakeAsylum/Animal Planet’s “Blood Lake: Attack Of The Lampreys” was a b-movie that premiered on the network awhile back. It is directed by the very talented, and often provocative Director James Cullen Bressack. “Blood Lake” starred Shannen Doherty, Jason Brooks, Zack Ward, Christopher Lloyd, Clara Hanna, Rachel True, Mark Christopher Lawrence, and Jody Barton. The CGI driven creature feature has a lakeside community terrorized by lampreys with a taste for human blood.

“Blood Lake” is exactly what I thought it would be, a crazy maelstrom of CGI critters, melodrama, and garden variety of two-dimensional characters. The story contains the same material as any other b-movie, creature feature currently playing on several genre channels on cable. “Blood Lake” does have a cool blend of nostalgia mixed in. There were moments that reminded me of the old Roger Corman “Piranhas”.

James Cullen Bressack has a specific signature of story telling that was lacking with “Blood Lake”, The raw, personal connection that I normally feel from Bresack’s films was missing in this one. There was a lot of his dark humor and creativity present “Blood Lake”, mostly with the kill scene shots. Not everything was CGI, there was the rubber lampreys, and I think I saw some practical blood effects. I don’t really get into these CGI driven b-movies-I prefer the puppeteering and animatronic creature effects of old. Still I watched the whole thing so I can say I like “Blood Lake” better than “Sharknado”-I never even made it past the first 15 minutes of that one.

“Blood Lake: Attack Of The Lampreys” has a lot of missing components to the story. The acting and scenes are clunky at times, the characters never feel real or believable. There is an obvious lack of chemistry between some of the cast that shows on screen. Still “Blood Lake” does have a fun, cheese fest thing happening that, in spite of the CGI, manages to liven up the film’s mediocrity. Plus it was enough just to see Christopher Lloyd's rectal assault by the creatures, and Zack Ward is always nice to look at on screen.
