Pagan Festival Shout Out: Summer Solstice/ Litha

Marks the beginning of Summer and the longest day and shortest night of the year; celebration of the light with dancing around a bonfire. [a/k/a Old European turning-of-the-season day, Neo-Pagan turning-of-the-season day, Wiccan turning-of-the-season day, Summer Sabbat]

In northern Europe, the longest day of the year was known as Midsummer, while wiccans and other pagan groups called it Litha. People were thought to wear protective garlands of herbs and flowers to ward off evil spirits that appear on the summer solstice.The most powerful of these, was “chase devil,” known today as St John’s Wort because of its association with St John’s Day.

Folklore also holds that bonfires on Midsummer, as the solstice was known among northern Europeans, would banish demons and evil spirits and lead young maidens to their future husbands. 

Decorate your altar with summer flowers, herbs and fruits, and summer colors like yellow, green and blue. This is a traditional time for rites of re-dedication to the God and Goddess, as well as divination related to love and romance. Keep at least one candle lit throughout the day to honor the Sun, and if possible hold your Litha rituals at noon, when the Sun is at its highest point in the sky. 

Pagan Festival Shout Out: feast of Orisha Babalu Aye

Babalu Aye is simultaneously one of the most feared and revered Orishas in Yoruban tradition. Presiding over the powers of life and death, his influence was so widespread that his worship grew from a single tribe in West Benin to many tribes all along the western coast of Africa. He is the patron deity of those who are suffering from sickness or infirmity. His domain is twofold -- he can cure the sick, and send illnesses as punishment for the wicked. 
Babalu Aye's shrine is a terracotta pot adorned with cowrie shells. It is kept in a dark, quiet place where he will not be bothered, along with 18 loose cowrie shells used to communicate with him in diloggun divination. Call on Babalu Aye in times of sickness, whether to heal the sick or send those who cannot be cured peacefully to their deaths. Although he is feared for his power to give and take away illness, he is also a happy and merciful deity.
Make offerings of his favorite foods: roasted or popped corn, beans, or other grains. Rum, tobacco, or dry white wine are also appreciated. Peanuts and sesame seeds are taboo. Animals associated with him are vultures, buzzards, and other carrion birds, and his gemstones are  bloodstone, tanzanite, snowflake obsidian, and jasper.
To communicate with Babalu Aye, recite the following prayer: 
"God of the epidemics and the sick.
I pray to you now, have pity on us your children. 
Oh, glorious father, keep sickness away from my home, and protect your children from epidemics. 
Thank you my father."

Pagan Festival Shout Out: Old Slavic Kupala

Kupala Night is a Slavic celebration of ancient pagan origin marking the end of the summer solstice and the beginning of the harvest (midsummer). In the western Ukrainian Lemko region and Prešov region it was called Sobitka.

Kupalo was believed to be the god of love and of the harvest and the personification of the earth’s fertility. According to popular belief, ‘Kupalo eve’ (‘Ivan’s eve’) was the only time of the year when the earth revealed its secrets and made ferns bloom to mark places where its treasures were buried, and the only time when trees spoke and even moved and when witches gathered. It was also the only time of the year when free love received popular sanction.

Young men and women gathered outside the village in the forest or near a stream or pond. There they built ‘Kupalo fires’—a relic of the pagan custom of bringing sacrifice—around which they performed ritual dances and sang ritual songs, often erotic. They leaped over the fires, bathed in the water (an act of purification), and played physical games with obviously sexual connotations.

First Trailer Released For 70’s Grindhouse Homage "MOMO: The Missouri Monster"

First Trailer Released for 70’s Grindhouse Homage, MOMO: The Missouri Monster

 A new “docu-drama” from indie film production company, Small Town Monsters, seeks to tell the true, and truly strange story of the Missouri Monster. The hair-covered, three-toed monstrosity was said to have prowled the forests of “Star Hill” near Louisiana, Missouri during the summer of 1972 where it was seen by terrified citizens for weeks. The case gained national media attention during the 70’s and remains one of the largest tourist draws for the tiny town, which sits on the banks of the  Mississippi River. The first trailer for the film debuts today and hints at the storytelling devices employed, as well as some of the fascinating interviews and locations.

The latest release from Small Town Monsters and director, Seth Breedlove, is told in narrative and documentary form. The narrative sections appear under the guise of a lost b-movie from the 70s. The horror film depicts the widely believed details of the MOMO story (said to have been inspired by Breedlove’s love of grindhouse movies and old “creature features”) and is eventually contradicted and corrected by the actual people who lived through the events. The film stars Adam Duggan and Sara Heddleston, as well as Animal Planet’s Cliff Barackman and James “Bobo” Fay with special appearances by Janet Jay and Elizabeth Saint (Ghosts of Shepherdstown).

The films director, and co-writer, Breedlove describes MOMO: The Missouri Monster as “Rashomon meets Creature from Black Lake or The Legend of Boggy Creek”.
The latest title to crawl forth from the production powerhouse behind last year’s best-selling documentary on Amazon, On the Trail of Bigfoot, is set for a late September release. A midnight premiere is scheduled at the Kentucky Theater in Lexington, Kentucky on Friday, September 6th with some of the cast and crew in attendance. The premiere will coincide with Cryptid-Con; a cryptozoology and paranormal convention celebrating its third year and featuring a number of renowned authors, television personalities, and speakers.
A grindhouse-style poster created by artist, Adrienne Breedlove also debuted today along with the films official one-sheet by Sam Shearon.

“Amityville 1974” To Begin Principal Photography November Of This Year

The Wonderfilm Media Corporation announced today that it has green lit the horror film “Amityville 1974” to begin principal photography in November of this year.

The film is based on the real life tragedy that spawned THE AMITYVILLE HORROR novel and subsequent films when Ronald DeFeo Jr. shot all six members of his family on a fateful November night. This tragedy was seared into the minds of the public consciousness by writer Jay Anson, whose book “The Amityville Horror” recounted the terror experienced by a family moving into the house in 1975 but fleeing after 28 days driven out by hostile supernatural forces. Wonderfilm’s Amityville 1974 will tell the story of the DeFeo’s horrifying murderous rampage.

Casey La Scala (Donnie Darko, The Remaining) will direct from a script he wrote. Jeff Bowler and Shaun Redick (Get Out/ Blackkklansman) will produce for Wonderfilm. Todd Garner(Tag/Mortal Kombat) will also produce. Bret Saxon and Yvette Yates will Executive Produce.

Wonderfilm’s sister company, Wonderfilm Global, will launch worldwide sales at TIFF, while currently negotiating with domestic theatrical distributors. Wonderfilm is fully financing the picture.

“We are beyond thrilled to introduce Amityville 1974. Casey has a truly unique and terrifying vision for the fright franchise and audiences will experience horror like never before with this film,” said Jeff Bowler, founding partner of Wonderfilm Media.

“This is a story that takes its jumping off point from the true facts surrounding the Defeo tragedy, but also focuses on the human drama that took place inside a family as they were relentlessly stalked by a terrifying evil .” said Casey La Scala
La Scala adapted and will produce the inspirational book “Fly a Little Higher” for Warner Brothers Studios which goes into production this year with Justin Baldoni(five feet apart) directing.

La Scala is repped by Paradigm and Ziffren, Brittenham.
