Sneak Preview Of "Morning After" Released


Sexual diversity is a topic rarely explored in cinema and director Patricia Chica, better known for her award-winning horror shorts A Tricky TreatSerpent's Lullaby and Ceramic Tango, has just released the sneak preview featurette of her film Morning After, which is intended to raise awareness around sexual fluidity.

"This is my most mainstream project, as I’m working outside of horror, fantasy, and genre for the first time in a decade. My horror fans should not be disappointed about this momentary transition as this new movie will have all that boldness, social relevance and authenticity that my work is known for,” says Patricia Chica.

 Morning After, is a bold and playful coming of age drama starring five bright rising actors – Thomas Vallières(Game of Death), Zoé de Grand Maison(Orphan Black), Joey Scarpellino (The Parents), Jordana Lajoie (The Art of More) and Kristian Hodko (The Howling: Reborn) who also wrote the script – this proof-of-feature, dramatic short is slated for release in May 2017.

In exchange for pledging to this prestige independent film project, backers will gain access to a variety of titillating rewards including a “date” with the actors and the director herself; early access to a streaming copy of the film; an intimate PR consultation or acting coaching; VIP invitations to the film premieres in Los Angeles, Toronto and Montreal; a badge to accompany the team to the Cannes’ Film Market in 2017; the possibility to obtain wardrobe pieces worn by the actors; or even the rules to the exclusive “Chocolate Kissing Game”, as seen in the movie!

"Stray", starring Gabrielle Stone, on Google Play





A killer decides to settle down in a small town and start a family. But first she has to find the right guy to help make it happen, whether he wants to or not. Stray, boasting an award-winning screenplay from writer-director Nena Eskridge, is now available on Google Play from Indie Rights.

Official Synopsis : Stray begins on an idyllic countryside meadow: a willow tree bending over an azure pond, farm animals grazing on hilly fields, and–suddenly–a young woman, Jennifer (Gabrielle Stone, Speak No Evil), rolls out of a van and away from a male assailant. She stabs him and escapes narrowly into the forest, with nothing but a small pink knapsack.

Jennifer lands in the sedate and equally idyllic Chestnut Hill, picking up shifts at a local bar, and finding a friend in Greg (Dan McGlaughlin, Zombie Killers : Elephant’s Graveyard), the bar’s owner. But Jennifer isn’t content to remain friends. She quickly comes between Greg and his fiancée Sarah (Samantha Fairfield Walsh, Funny Bunny) by falling pregnant and claiming Greg as the father of her child. But just as she is on the brink of becoming a part of a family, her hidden, unspeakable past catches up to her, which spells disaster for all who have come to know her in Chestnut Hill.

Is it possible for Jennifer to break the cycle and overcome her violent history, or will she flee again, doomed to remain a wandering stray?


Stray is out now on Amazon Prime and Google Play  from Indie Rights.
