Hellishly Entertaining “Hell Fire” Available Now On DVD/VOD

Hellfire4 Girls. The Antichrist. One Hell Of A Problem. – “Hell Fire” Available Now DVD and VOD.

Midnight Releasing presents Hell Fire, an action packed, blood soaked, roller coaster about inner demons and the Hell that is unleashed upon four prostitutes when they mistakenly kidnap the son of the Devil.  The movie is available at rental/retail chains including Family Video and Hastings, as well as On Demand through most major cable, satellite, and internet VOD providers.  DVD Extras include audio commentary with the cast and director Marc Fratto, the "No Budget Films of Cinnamon", and plenty of deleted scenes and outtakes!


About the Film
Hell Fire comes from the depths of writer/director Marc Fratto's (Strange Things Happen At Sundown, Zombies Anonymous) twisted and stylized mind. Although the film takes place almost entirely in one remote cabin location there are thrills, horror, gore, and humor around every corner. Extreme stunts, practical makeup, and inventive cinematography put Hell Fire in a league of its own.


Reviews have been highly positive so far, including Fangoria's Michael Gingold who called the film "Outrageously entertaining," and a 4.5-star rating from Film Threat.


Meet the Antichrist.  He's been kidnapped during a home invasion by a group of prostitutes who've mistaken him for someone else, and now they're about to find out exactly who they're messing with. One by one the women become possessed by demonic forces and turn on each other. As the bodies begin to pile up, the girls fight for their lives.

Cover Art And Release Details Announced For “Starry Eyes”

Starry-Eyes-Blu-ray-coverPress Release
An aspiring actress finally gets a role to die for in STARRY EYES, "one of the most exciting independent horror films to come out in a long time" (Michele Galgana, Twitch). The nerve-shattering film comes to Digital Download, Blu-ray and DVD from MPI Home Video on February 3, 2015.

Determined to make it as an actress in Hollywood, Sarah Walker (Alex Essoe, Passion Play, Boy Toy) spends her days working a dead-end job, enduring petty friendships with other struggling artists and competing actors, and going on countless casting calls in hopes of catching her big break. After a series of strange auditions, Sarah lands the leading role in a film from a mysterious production company. But this opportunity comes with some bizarre conditions that will transform her both mentally and physically into something beautiful ... and altogether terrifying.

From the producer of Cheap Thrills and Jodorowsky’s Dune, Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kolsch’s STARRY EYES is an occult tale of ambition, possession and the true cost of fame.

In addition to Essoe, the cast includes Noah Segan (Looper, Brick, The Picture of Dorian Gray), Pat Healy (The Innkeepers, Cheap Thrills, Compliance) and Amanda Fuller (The Brittany Murphy Story, Cheap Thrills).

Entertainment Weekly’s Clark Collis called STARRY EYES "a skillful combination of occult thriller and Cronenbergian gruesome-fest. Essoe gives a star-making performance." "One of the best horror films of the year. ... Brilliant and brutal," said Meredith Borders of Badass Digest. "Terrifying," said Time’s Michael Roffman. "If David Lynch and David Cronenberg came together to craft a gory, psychological mindbender, it might be STARRY EYES."

Special features on the Blu-ray and DVD include commentary with writer-directors Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer (who previously teamed on Absence) and producer Travis Stevens; 10 deleted scenes; a music video by the film’s composer, Jonathan Snipes; Alex Essoe’s audition video; a behind-the-scenes photo gallery, and the theatrical trailer.
