Matt Wohl's "Scooter" In Select Theatres This September

SCOOTER – Starring Mitch Lemos (“Blood Notice”) In select theaters this September

Matt Wohl's upcoming thriller "Scooter" will receive a North American theatrical release via Artist Rights Distribution this fall. 

“Joyride” meets “The Blair Witch Project” in a sweat-inducing account of three YouTubers that set out on an 866 mile adventure on scooters. However, they find out that it’s not the destination that will kill you, it’s the journey.
“Scooter”, from writer-director-producer Matt Wohl , will premiere in Florida on Thursday, September 12 (details here) with other markets and platforms to be announced.
The Three Amigoes are life-long best friends and partners in crime. They became internet famous after their YouTube channel went viral. Each episode of their antics has them undertaking some ridiculous challenge. From racing cars to tricycles and from the waters of the South Atlantic to the bottom of a swimming pool, there’s no challenge too stupid. Like a pack of cats, they always land on their feet.
The Amigoes latest challenge is to ride scooters from Miami to New Orleans. Each person has $1000 to get a scooter, pay for gas, food, and lodging. After they select their vehicles and pack their bags, it’s time to hit the road. They soon find that their 50CC scooters are no match of I-95, and they retreat to the side roads to continue their epic 900 mile journey. While the road is smoother, the trip gets a lot bumpier. One of the scooters break down, the friends start to fight amongst each other, and their troubles reach a climax when they witness and video a murder.
Stuck in rural Florida with two working scooters, they have little hope of escape, and the killer is hot on their trail. What was once a leisurely trip becomes a fight for survival. They end up captured, tortured, and it’s clear they won’t all survive. When those who are sworn to protect you are the problem, where do you turn? Will they all die in a small backwater town, or can they once again defy the odds and come out alive?

Narrating A New Approach To Found Footage: My Interview With "They're Inside" Director John-Paul Panelli

Writer, Director and Producer, John-Paul Panelli is out to create interesting narrative stories. With an affinity for the found footage subgenre, John-Paul seeks to explore new ground and shed some much needed light on the over-done film style. Things like, plausibility, continuity of filming in the face of extreme danger, are just a few argument points that can be made about found footage. John-Paul Panelli is interested in addressing those issues.

His feature film debut, a found footage film titled "They're Inside", will hopefully clear some things up for both fans of the subgenre, as well as nay sayers. The film is co-written with Schuyler Brumley and tells the story of sisters, isolated, and seeking to film a personal project, trapped in a deadly passion project from Intruders. I had an opportunity to ask Panelli a few questions about the film. Read my interview with the director below.

ASOUTHERNLIFE: What was the inspiration for They're Inside?
JOHN-PAUL PANELLI: To make a found-footage film that answered 2 questions: Who edited this film? Why are
they still filming when in danger?

ASOUTHERNLIFE: What was it like working with Schuyler Brumley?
JOHN-PAUL: Great. He’s a terrific writer and collaborator. He came up with this story, did the heavy lifting on the drafts… but he was also open for my take on it and things that I wanted to
get in the film.

ASOUTHERNLIFE: What was the main objective or driving force behind such a creative, blended medium? Sort of a
story invaded by a darker story. And what do you hope horror fans take away from watching the
JOHN-PAUL: We had never seen a film done this way before and we wanted to take an ambitious shot at doing our version of a home invasion film. We hope they feel it was something they haven’t seen before and it is worth watching a 2nd time.

ASOUTHERNLIFE: As a director, how hard was it blending the film's two concepts, in making sure the film captured the story without complicating the final product?
JOHN-PAUL: Impossibly hard. It’s a complicated story, with multiple timelines and moving parts. I
didn’t really find the right balance until our Editor, Rich Gilliam, was able to weave it in a way that made more sense.

ASOUTHERNLIFE: They're Inside focuses on a passion project that "collides" with another passion project, so on a personal level, was this a passion project?
JOHN-PAUL: It was a passion project in the sense that it was my first feature, so that was added pressure. But it wasn’t a story I had been marinating on, for a decade, waiting to make. I was just tired of hearing about others making films and me only watching them.

ASOUTHERNLIFE: What can horror fans expect from you next, both as a writer and as a director?
JOHN-PAUL: Darker and more scary. They’re Inside really is just a fucked up family drama to me… I want to make something that shakes people to their core.

ASOUTHERNLIFE:  Who are some of the directors who inspired you, and what films of theirs got your attention?
a. Mike Flanagan - Oculus: Origins of Evil
b. Adam Wingard - The Guest
c. Ruben Östlund - Force Majeure
d. James Wan - Saw
e. Karyn Kusama - The Invitation
f. Andrés Muschietti - It: Chapter 1 (and soon to be Chapter 2)
g. Ari Aster - Hereditary

A Dark, Yet Earnest Exploration Of Teens In Space: My Interview With Writer/Director Drew Bolduc

Drew Bolduc is best known for his film "The Taint", as well as his work on "Science Team". His writing and directing has garnered several film festival award nominations. His latest entry into the indie film world blends his love for classic horror with his equal love of science fiction.

"Assassinaut" is an ambitious, unique film exploring both sci-fi and retro thriller tropes with youthful action adventure flare. It follows four teenage astronauts braving an alien wilderness on a distant planet to save the Earth's President from a deadly assassin. I had a chance to interview Bolduc about his work and "Assassinaut", here is what he had to say:

ASOUTHERNLIFEWhere did the inspiration come from for ASSASSINAUT?
DREW BOLDUC: It originally started as a very violent Power Rangers-type movie. Some of the elements definitely remain in the final product in some of the monsters and SFX, but it evolved into something else.

ASOUTHERNLIFE: The film is genre- bending, mixing sci-fi adventure with arthouse thriller. Was that always present from the beginning or did your vision evolve into what we see on screen?
DREW BOLDUC: It started campier and more ironic. The more I worked on it, the less funny it became. I guess I was in a dark place. The tongue-in-cheek nature of a lot of indie genre stuff these days just wasn't interesting me. It seems safe now. I wanted it to be earnest. The visual look of the film also evolved and that changed the tone as well.

ASOUTHERNLIFE: There’s a strong focus on kids being responsible for the future of mankind, clearly expressive of our reality. How important was it to capture that on screen? Was it intentional?
DREW BOLDUC: I really wanted to show the conflict between an older and younger generation. We kind of just throw the next generation into a meat grinder in this country and yet get them to believe in all these impossible dreams and goals. We really don't prepare anyone for reality here.

ASOUTHERNLIFE: How was it working with a mostly young cast, filming such dark, heavy subject matter?
DREW BOLDUC: I think they liked it and thought it was cool, but honestly it was like working with adults. They were all very professional and awesome at their jobs.

ASOUTHERNLIFE: What do you hope fans take away after watching ASSASSINAUT?
DREW BOLDUC : Life is hard, people die, you got to figure out things for yourself.

ASOUTHERNLIFE : Were you surprised at the overwhelmingly positive response from both critics and audiences? They tend to go into a movie from different perspectives? The feedback has been equally positive on both sides.
DREW BOLDUC: I feel in a lot of ways the movie is like an ink blot. I constantly hear completely different and contradictory views on what the movie is and isn't. I think it is a movie that you have to accept on its own terms otherwise people just won't get it. There are those that do not like it out there for sure, which is whatever, but it isn't a party movie. It isn't about being totally gratified and sedated when it ends. It was part of the theme.

ASOUTHERNLIFE: Who are some of the directors that inspired you, and what are some of their films that inspired you?
DREW BOLDUC: Kent Russell - The Devils, Paul Verhoeven - Robocop, Katsuhito Ishii - The Taste of Tea

70s Grindhouse Homage "MOMO: THE MISSOURI MONSTER" Arrives This September From Small Town Monsters

70s Grindhouse Homage MOMO: THE MISSOURI MONSTER Arrives September 20th on DVD and VOD from Small Town Monsters

Small Town Monsters has announced the September 20th DVD and VOD release of Seth Breedlove's docudrama MOMO: The Missouri Monster.  The latest title to crawl forth from the production powerhouse behind last year's best-selling documentary On the Trail of BigfootMOMO: The Missouri Monster 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 spotted by terrified citizens for weeks.  The film will be available nationwide on DVD, as well as Vimeo OnDemand, Amazon Instant Video, and VIDI Space.

The case gained national media attention during the '70s and remains one of the largest tourist draws for the tiny town on the banks of the Mississippi River. The latest release from Small Town Monsters and director Seth Breedlove, MOMO: The Missouri Monster is told in both narrative and documentary form. The narrative sections appear as a lost b-movie from the 1970s, inspired by Breedlove's lifelong fascination with grindhouse movies and creature features. The horror film depicts the widely accepted details of the MOMO legend and is eventually contradicted and corrected by the actual survivors who lived through the events.  Breedlove describes MOMO: The Missouri Monster as "Rashomon meets Creature from Black Lake or The Legend of Boggy Creek".

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).  

Ahead of the national video release, a midnight premiere is scheduled at the Kentucky Theater in Lexington, Kentucky on Friday, September 6th with 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.  On Friday, September 13th, the Canton Palace Theatre in Canton, OH will play host to the Ohio Premiere of MOMO with cast and crew in attendance.
