ABSOLUTE GIALLO "FRANCESCA" GETS UK RELEASE



Jinga Films and Matchbox Films are pleased to announce the UK release of Nicolas Onetti's giallo homage FRANCESCA which will be released on Bluray, DVD and VOD from July 3rd 2017.

A psychopath stalks the city cleaning it of "impure and damned souls". Moretti and Succo are the detectives tasked with resolving these "Dantesque" crimes. The secret is eventually revealed by Francesca, a little girl who was abducted 15 years ago, but has now reappeared.

Like Barberian Sound Studio, Amer and The Strange Colour Of Your Bodies Tears, FRANCESCA is an authentic and stylish celebration of the Italian giallo crime thrillers of the 60's and 70's made popular by Mario Bava and Dario Argento. 

FRANCESCA - Trailer from Jinga Films on

FRANCESCA received its World premiere at Cannes where it screened in Blood Windows and has since become a genre festival favourite with screenings at FrightFest, Sitges, Fantasporto, Fantaspoa and Morbido.

“The spirit of Giallo is very much alive and kicking in Luciano Onetti’s loving homage to 
the classic Italian sub genre” 
– Ben Robins, The National Student    

"Impressive, creative, nostalgic. Onetti’s recreation of Giallo resurrects 1970’s Italian Horror” 
– Kat Hughes, The Hollywood News 

“Absolute giallo...a truly spectacular blend 
of sleazy saturation, pop art excess and dark desires” 
- Matthew Hammond, Movie Ramblings 

“Surreal, seductive and violent, a stunning 
recreation of 70’s giallo” 
– Steve Wright, Britflicks. 

“A masterclass for nostalgia-seeking Giallo fans. 
You can’t help but wish this was the kind of film 
Argento was still making”
 – Becky Roberts, Horror Talk.

"Gun Caliber" Limited Edition Presales Begin


SRS Cinema is excited to bring the fans its first ever Japanese produced release in the hilarious Tokusatsu flick ” Gun Caliber”.  The action packed feature was inspired by TV series like “The Power Rangers” and the “Godzilla” movies, yet given a totally tasteless and politically incorrect twist in a super hero lead who’s more interested in getting laid then he is in being a hero.  The movie is also the latest title SRS is taking out to film festivals and theaters in advance of a wide release (Following “She Kills” and “Lights Camera Blood!”).  In fact, “Gun Caliber” has already made it as a finalist in the FROSTBITE International Film Festival in Colorado and was just accepted into Cinemafantastique 3 in Canada.  With another dozen or so submissions ahead watch for news on more showings soon.



Meantime, for fans who can’t wait for the wide release on DVD and VOD (projected for late 2017), SRS has launched a special advance limited editions on Bluray and VHS.  Copies are now in stock (with over half sold already) and shipping immediately. Check out this synopsis:
 
“Get ready to shoot evil in the dick and steal its wallet!
 
It is the year, 20XX AD. The evil organization known as “Skulldier” is hell-bent on taking over Japan – well, right after they finish their lunch break – with a device known as the “Gen Drive”. But one man stands in their way… Soma Kusanagi. He may be your average, miserable, Smartball Parlor employee in Tokyo’s Old Town, but when evil rears its ugly ass on the Japanese metropolis, he transforms into the gun-slinging superhero GUN CALIBER! He’s a hero who likes his bullets fast and his women even faster… a hero who can beat down evil as if it was his ex-wife!


From the creative Filipino-Canadian mind of indie Tokusatsu director Bueno and his ragtag Tokyo based film group GARAGE HERO, “GUN CALIBER” is a drunk, sexy, euphoric, action packed, Tour-de-Force that’s so hot, you’ll wish your face could melt…”
 
“Gun Caliber”, based on director Bueno’s hugely popular youtube series, is just as crazy as it sounds – you won’t be disappointed in this one!

New Video Interview With Macarena Gomez, Discussing Her Role In "The Black Gloves".

Check out the new video interview with Macarena Gomez, discussing her role in upcoming horror "The Black Gloves".

Spanish horror icon Macarena Gomez tells all about Gothic chiller The Black Gloves 

Horror fans will recognise Macarena Gomez from her many iconic performances in the genre, from the mesmerizing sea priestess in Dagon to the deranged shut-in in Shrew's Nest, and the psychotic murderess in Sexy Killer. She is known for her intense and memorable performances, but her role in The Black Gloves might be her most extreme yet. In this Hitchcock-inspired horror, Macarena plays Lorena Velasco, a formidable ballet mistress obsessed with the recovery of her troubled student.

Macarena chats candidly about working with Director Lawrie Brewster and her fellow actors Jamie Scott-Gordon and Alexandra Nicole Hulme, as well as the challenges of performing in English, and what it's like to work on an independent production. 

The Black Gloves is the latest offering from Director/Writer team Lawrie Brewster and Sarah Daly. It tells the story of a psychologist obsessed with the disappearance of his young patient, and the menacing owl-headed figure that plagued her nightmares. His investigations lead him to a reclusive ballerina who, just like his patient, is convinced that she is about to die at the hands of this disturbing entity.



The filmmakers have launched a Kickstarter campaign to secure finishing funds for the project. With less than a week to go, there's still time to get involved and help this indie chiller reach its full potential. http://kck.st/2onBRIZ

"Black Site " Begins Production




AirPick Pictures and Tom Paton Film are proud to announce the start of
production of their forthcoming movie BLACK SITE, a supernatural action best
described as HP Lovecraft meets The Raid, starring Mike Beckingham (brother of Simon Pegg), and directed by Tom Paton ( Redwood, Pandorica).

BLACK SITE is the story of Ren Reid, orphaned as a child when a member of
an ancient race known as The Elder Gods killed her parents. Twenty Years
have passed and a fractured Ren now works for Artemis, an organization
set up to contain and then deport these entities back to where they came
from. When the Elder God responsible for Ren’s childhood tragedy is caught and brought to The Black Site for deportation, Ren must partner with an unlikely ally as the last line of defense against a wave of worshippers hell bent on releasing their deity back into the world. With the facility on lockdown and the enemy closing in, Ren has just hours to avenge her parents and prove once and for all that she is worthy of wearing the Artemis uniform.

Mike Beckingham stars in the movie, as a follow-up to his first collaboration with
Tom Paton, REDWOOD (set for a major release later this year}. Early reactions to that movie have been beyond positive, setting the table for this larger, more ambitious production to introduce audiences to the rich & detailed world
Paton has created in BLACK SITE. (An expansive, potential franchise starter
that spans a wealth of known mythology weaved in amongst something
unexpected}.

Critics say, “Paton’s debut features mark him as the genre name to watch.”

Director’s Cut of “Other Halves” Now Available on DVD


Other Halves, the horror film about a killer dating app, is now out on DVD in uncensored form, as intended by the filmmakers.

“We’re very excited to have our original vision available for everyone to see,” says co-writer/director Matthew T. Price. “We were disappointed that the film had to be altered for Amazon Prime. Now audiences can watch the movie we set out to create.”

The Other Halves DVD is available on Amazon and Create Space. The DVD is also available on Kunaki for a special discounted price.

In addition to DVDs, Other Halves is invading laptops, cell phones, and internet-connected TVs around the world. Tech-savvy horror fans can stream it now on iTunes, Vudu, Google Play and Amazon Prime.

Other Halves stars Lauren Lakis (Rows, Dr Ken) and Mercedes Manning (Strictly Sexual, Zipper) as programmers who develop a revolutionary new dating app. On the night it’s set to lunch, they discover a bug: the app unleashes the user’s id. They consider shutting the app down, but…

Evil is profitable.

Check out this NSFW clip of Devon (Lauren Lakis) using the app for the first time:


After a successful circuit of horror festivals, including Other Worlds Austin, and Another Hole in the Head, and ZedFest (where it won Best Micro-Budget Feature) Other Halves will now be terrifying general audiences.

Shot on location at a real tech startup, the filmmakers sought authenticity in their depiction of coders in San Francisco. The writers, Matthew T. Price and Kelly Morr, consulted with actual programmers to ensure the dialogue was as realistic as possible.

They also chose to focus on a team of women creating an app, a field that is traditionally dominated by men. The tech industry has been making a conscious effort to foster gender equality, and the creators of Other Halves wanted to reflect that.

The Austin Chronicle calls it “part giallo, part techno-horror, part Cronenberg-style Jekyll and Hyde riff, part acerbic sex comedy, and a wry commentary about the addictive nature of technology.” Shock Till You Drop says it’s “a satirical and techno-savvy film laced with more than just a drizzle of Sci-Fi.” And Dread Central says “Sure, you don’t even have to leave your house anymore, but that doesn’t mean you’re not still taking your life in your hands when dealing with strangers. Case in point: Other Halves.”

Other Halves, from One Oh One Radio Pictures, is the feature film debut for writer/director Matthew T. Price, and writer/producer Kelly Morr. The film is also produced by Curt Chatham, and features Lianna Liew (Truth Or Dare), Sam Schweikert (Hart of Dixie), and Melanie Friedrich (Positive: Some Doors Should Remain Closed). Megan Hui (The Gambler), and Carson Nicely (The Conan O’Brien Show).

You can follow the production on their website, www.OtherHalv.es or on IMDB, as well as on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter (@OtherHalvesFilm), and Instagram (@OtherHalvesFilm).
