" Suicide Squad" stars Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, Jai Courtney, Joel Kinnaman, Cara Delevingne, Viola Davis, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Adam Beach, Jay Hernandez, and Karen Fukahara.

"White Crack Bastard" Set For Wide Release

Three years after completion, director James Cullen Bressack’s controversial ode to excessWhite Crack Bastard is acquired by BrinkVision; shingle skeds title for February 20 release.  

Wolf of Wall Street meets Bad Lieutenant in the confronting true story of a privileged white man that uses the ghetto, sex addiction, and crack cocaine to live up to his full potential and have the life he’s always dreamed of.

From acclaimed filmmaker James Cullen Bressack, director of Pernicious and Bethany, and writer Lisa Vachon comes a sweltering hot button release starring Rhett Benz, Taja V.Simpson (The Young & The Restless), Edmond Chapple and Walter Mendoza.

White Crack Bastard is a confronting, drug-fueled rollercoaster ride of bite and buzz that doesn’t shy away from truths – explaining its delay to the screen.

Luke Anderson, Early 40s, the picture of success, white, privileged, and handsome, uses crack and sex as a means to punish himself to overcome the problem he’s had his whole life; not feeling worthy enough to know he deserves to live a happy life and to be comfortable in his own skin. 

Most people use drugs to ease pain. Luke uses drugs to create pain by using it as his therapy; a therapy long overdue from years of struggling with abandonment issues. Issues that were created by the death of Luke’s father when he was a young boy. 
With each binge, Luke’s therapy effectively erases old pain and provides a missing link to the puzzle. With each sexual encounter, a new reality of dealing with intimacy enlightens him. Through this unorthodox therapy, he struggles to become the man he’s always wanted to be and to lead the life he’s always dreamed of. He just has to go through hell to get there. Being an attractive, educated, and privileged white man in the hood doing crack, isn’t exactly society’s picture of drug addiction. Try being in Luke’s shoes, he’s known as WHITE CRACK BASTARD…

New Images From "Axeman II: Overkill"

#SinningWorks Releases New Stills Of Two Returning Favorites For The Sequel AXEMAN II: OVERKILL, Scheduled For Release In 2016.
With AXEMAN II: OVERKILL completed and awaiting the film's home video release announcement, filmmaker Joston "El Rey" Theney releases a new set of photos that center around two of the franchise's most memorable characters from the original that are returning for the upcoming installment: the much beloved couple that horror fans rooted for, and who's possible deaths everyone agonized over, TAMMY (now played by Kailena Mai, THE LETTER RED) and LIZ (now played by Whitney Nielsen, CHILDREN OF SORROW).  These are two favorites that most audiences believed had met their demises in the original, or were certainly knocking on death's door, however find themselves returning for the second installment of the horror trilogy.  One of the revealing stills features MTV "Teen Mom" Farrah Abraham in her role as crazed Evangelical FANNIE RAE BAKER! 

Never one to mince words, when asked how either of these characters could return after their very memorable, and grotesque, run-ins with the titular villain of the AXEMAN franchise, Theney quipped, "Not everything is as it seems in the AXEMAN universe and you didn't acutally see either character bite it in the original - no pun intended."
Audiences may remember Tammy and Liz' ill-fated escape that resulted in the AXEMAN literally tearing the flesh from Tammy's face with his jagged teeth, all-the-while knowing that the love of her life Liz lay dead by the AXEMAN's blade.  To that, "El Rey" laughs, "I can guarantee you that Tammy remembers that too!"  "Another way to look at it though is, maybe, Liz passed out from blood-loss while the Axeman took a chunk out of Tammy's cheek to see what she tasted like," he continued.  "At least that's all you actually saw on-screen.  That would leave both still alive.  At least for a few extra moments.  Maybe longer.  Who knows?  One thing's for sure, if they die this go-around, like everyone else that dies in the sequel, it will be EPIC!"

Newcomer to the AXEMAN trilogy, Kailena Mai, who took over duties as TAMMY, was asked of what - if any - special preparations she did for the role after realizing she'd be replacing the previous star.  Mai replied, "I didn’t prepare any differently than I would for any other role."  "[The previous actress] was amazing, but I am a different person with different experiences, so I am automatically going to bring something different and unique to the role.  I will admit though, it does make me a little more nervous.  I kept saying to myself, “Self, you have to kill it… because otherwise you will be compared to someone else who killed it, in a not so positive way," she continued.

Tammy and Liz' on-screen romance in the original film was very passionate and loving.  Kailena was asked, assuming the two make it past the opening credits, what will be different this time around for the couple.  "I felt like the journey this go around was about love everlasting," Kailena answered.  She continues, "Tammy and Liz found the deepest bond man, or shall I say woman, can find in each other in AXEMAN.   AXEMAN II: OVERKILL tests the strength of this bond. Their love is the reason that both of them try as hard as they do to survive."

Asked if there's a chance that these two memorable characters will survive another run-in with the AXEMAN, Theney replied, "We have a whole slew of new memorable characters in this installment.  From crazed Christian Evangelicals IRMA JEAN MANLY (Arielle Hader) and FANNIE RAE BAKER (Farrah Abraham, MTV's "Teen Mom"), to murderous bank-robbers BREAKER (Rachel Reilly, CBS' "Big Brother") and DUNGIE (Angelica Bridges, "Baywatch"), and everyone in between, we have more than enough memorable characters, memorable moments and quotable lines to create awesome new memories."

Release Date and Trailer For "Southbound"

An official trailer and release date has been announced for "Southbound". The film comes from the creators of " V/H/S" and due out February 5th in select theatres with VOD happening on the 9th.

Weary travellers confront their worst nightmares — and darkest secrets — over one long night on a desolate stretch of desert highway in this spooky anthology that merges five tales of death and mayhem on the open road.
Mitch and Jack are on the run from their past when they turn up, blood-splattered, at a lonely roadside diner; an all-girl rock group called Siren must rely on the kindness of strangers when their tour van breaks down at the side of the road; a harried business-man is desperate for help from an unusual 911 operator in the aftermath of a car accident; a frantic gunman bursts into a bar demanding to know the whereabouts of a girl in a photograph; all hell breaks loose when masked men interrupt a family vacation.

First Teaser Trailer For "Green Room"

The first teaser trailer has been released for Jeremy Saulnier's "Green Room".  The horror thriller starImogen Poots, Anton Yelchin, Patrick Stewart, Alia Shawkat, and Mark Webber. " Green Room" also revealed a poster that shows Patrick Stewart as on evil Neo-Nazi.

Green Room’ is a brilliantly crafted and wickedly fun horror-thriller starring Patrick Stewart as a diabolical club owner who squares off against an unsuspecting but resilient young punk band.
Down on their luck punk rockers The Ain’t Rights are finishing up a long and unsuccessful tour, and are about to call it quits when they get an unexpected booking at an isolated, run-down club deep in the backwoods of Oregon. What seems merely to be a third-rate gig escalates into something much more sinister when they witness an act of violence backstage that they weren’t meant to see. Now trapped backstage, they must face off against the club’s depraved owner, Darcy Banker (Stewart), a man who will do anything to protect the secrets of his nefarious enterprise. But while Darcy and his henchmen think the band will be easy to get rid of, The Ain’t Rights prove themselves much more cunning and capable than anyone expected, turning the tables on their unsuspecting captors and setting the stage for the ultimate life-or-death showdown.

Intense, emotional, and ingeniously twisted, GREEN ROOM is genre filmmaking at its best and most original. Saulnier continues to build his reputation as one of the most exciting and distinctive directors working today, with a movie that’s completely different from his previous, highly acclaimed Blue Ruin, but which is just as risk-taking and even more full of twists. The entire cast deliver first-rate performances, but Patrick Stewart gives a transformative and brilliantly devious turn as Darcy—elegant yet lethal, droll yet terrifying, Stewart makes the film simply unforgettable.”
