The Belko Experiment In UK Cinemas 21st April 2017 from Vertigo Releasing

rsz_belko_quad_3_lrThe Belko Experiment In UK Cinemas 21st April 2017 from Vertigo Releasing

rsz_be1rsz_be2In a twisted social experiment, a group of 80 Americans are locked in their high-rise corporate office in Bogotá, Colombia, and ordered by an unknown voice coming from the company’s intercom system to participate in a deadly game of kill or be killed in order to survive.

Presented by Orion Pictures, an arm of MGM, The Belko Experiment is directed by Greg McLean (The Darkness, Wolf Creek), written by James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2) and produced by Peter Safran (The Conjuring, Annabelle) and Gunn. The film stars John Gallagher, Jr. (The Newsroom, 10 Cloverfield Lane), Tony Goldwyn (Scandal), Adria Arjona (True Detective), John C. McGinley (Stan Against Evil, Scrubs), Melonie Diaz (Fruitvale Station), Josh Brener (Silicon Valley) and Michael Rooker (Guardians of the Galaxy).

Sprung from the mind of acclaimed filmmaker James Gunn and directed by Greg McLean, The Belko Experiment raises provocative questions while offering a black-humoured thrill-ride that pushes ruthless corporate behaviour to terrifying extremes.

rsz_be3rsz_be4When office workers arrive for work at Belko Industries’ isolated high-rise campus outside Bogotá, Colombia, the morning starts much like any other. Mike Pelk (John Gallagher, Jr.) smokes weed in the bathroom and flirts with his beautiful officemate Leandra (Adria Arjona) while new employee Dany Wilkins (Melonie Diaz) settles in for her first day on the job. Everything changes when an anonymous voice comes through the intercom speakers ordering employees to kill two of their colleagues within 30 minutes. Many of the 80 employees assume the order is a sick joke, even when steel-plated doors snap shut sealing off all windows and exits. When they fail to comply before the half hour is up, the heads of four randomly chosen office workers explode.

Panic reaches a fever pitch when the disembodied voice issues his next command: thirty people must be killed within the next two hours or 60 people will die. Belko COO Barry Norris (Tony Goldwyn), a former Special Forces operative, commandeers a vault filled with guns, assembles an ad-hoc death squad and begins executing elderly and childless employees. In the ensuing melee, ordinary office workers including stoner Marty (Sean Gunn), nerdy Keith (Josh Brener), creepy Wendell (John C. McGinley) and maintenance guy Bud (Michael Rooker) reveal their true colours.

A Life in Blood – Tales of a Horror Queen #10 Shooting Herschell Gordon Lewis’ Bloodmania

rsz_1bm1Shooting Herschell Gordon Lewis’ Bloodmania in Calgary, Canada

Herschell Gordon Lewis may be gone, but he will never be forgotten. Thankfully he left horror fans with a parting gift: Herschell Gordon Lewis’ Bloodmania! Lewis is truly a horror legend and his films will be remembered. In fact, he was recently remembered on Turner Classic Network for those we lost in 2016.

When I came out to Calgary, Canada to shoot Herschell Gordon Lewis’ Bloodmania I thought this was the beginning of Lewis return to film, but sadly this ended up being his final film. It was a realization of a dream to be in Bloodmania; I was a big fan of Lewis and it was amazing to be leaving New York City to shoot in Canada. I am truly honored to have a celebrity cameo in his final epic film.

rsz_bm2I want to say what an honor it is to be included in a film by such a legendary film director of the horror genre! Lewis’ has made huge contributions to film! My favorites include Blood Feast, Two Thousand Maniacs, and Wizard of Gore so give them a watch next time your in the mood for some classic gore!

I arrived in December and was lucky enough to attend a special Meet and Great put together by James Saito, Vice-president of Development and Production at Diabolique Films and President at HGB Entertainment Ltd. I got to meet some of the brightest people in the Calgary independent film scene. It was wonderful to finally meet James Saito after speaking to him for such a long time about are mutual loves of horror, and filmmaking. I am very thankful for the opportunity to come out to Canada and get covered in blood!

rsz_bm3Then I had a very bloody photo shoot with the very talented photographer, Kenneth Locke. Angela White, Sara-Joy Goode, Donovan Cerminara, and I were part of an amazing promo photo shoot. I arrived, had my hair and makeup done by the skilled Ashley Godick, changed into something super sexy and then we were ready for some fun! It was a tantalizing blood orgy for the eyes! Horror fans can look forward to seeing Genoveva Rossi as you have never seen her before! It was a beautifully bloody mess of a shoot!

Next it was on to shoot my part for Herschell Gordon Lewis’ BloodMania! First I want to say what an honor it is to be included in a film by such a legendary film director of the horror genre! Lewis’ has made huge contributions to film! My favorites include Blood Feast, Two Thousand Maniacs, and Wizard of Gore so give them a watch next time your in the mood for some classic gore!

rsz_bm4One of the many of the high points of working on Herschell Gordon Lewis’ BloodMania was working with the amazing special effects expert David Trainor. Look for his work in the hit television show Fargo! It was amazing watching David in action! So much blood and gore for horror fans! It was also a pleasure to work closely with the multitalented James Saito.

When I learned of Lewis’ passing I cried. Perhaps we just all thought he was immortal. Certainly Lewis never planned on dying; he was simply too busy living. I am inspired that this was a man that lived creatively and fully up to the end and to the age of 86. He was a gentleman and a visionary who will never be forgotten. This horror queen is truly honored to be in his final film.

The Triple Six Horror Film Festival announces full line-up and weekend tickets on sale now!!

rsz_triple_six_festival_sponsors_1The Triple Six Horror Film Festival 2017 announces it’s full line-up for May 27th and 28th at AMC Manchester PLUS weekend tickets on sale now!!

Triple Six is a new international film festival that aims to celebrate everything that is great in new independent horror filmmaking . Showing 9 features and 12 shorts over two days at the AMC cinema complex in Manchester, Triple Six has films from around the world while also having a British backbone throughout.

Full Weekend tickets are on sale from April 3rd and are strictly limited . On sale for just four weeks they allow the holder to see all 9 films, 12 shorts and the live Q&A and are priced at just £30 each and are available here – http://bit.ly/2o1mswb

On Saturday May 27th Triple Six kicks off with the European Premiere of Quarries – Nils Taylor’s backwoods horror where a group of women on a wilderness expedition are stalked . A taut and intense feature that will start Triple Six at one hell of a pace.

The Forest of Lost Souls is a Portuguese slow burn horror from Director Jose Pedro Lopez. Filmed in black and white and with a stunning score , this is a story of suicide, love ,loss and much more. Maybe not a traditional festival film The Forest of Lost Souls is something very special and Triple Six has the UK Premiere.

The Unkindness of Ravens is director Lawrie Brewster’s third feature and follows from his stunning Lord of Tears (2013). Ravens follows the story of a homeless veteran who battles his demons in the Scottish Highlands. Visually stunning Brewster shows his vision and direction grows with each film and this is a must on the BIG SCREEN.

hardwareAnd to finish Saturday we have Hardware (1990) on 35mm which will be followed by a full Q&A with director Richard Stanley who will talk about his seminal directorial debut and much more. This is a very rare chance to catch Hardware on 35mm and will be a very special event indeed.

So for Sunday Triple Six starts with the UK Premiere of The Chair from director Chad Ferrin. The Chair is based on the graphic novel from Peter Simeti and tells the story of a man on death row fighting to survive even before the event itself. As dark as the original story The Chair is a claustrophobic, sadistic and harrowing watch starring genre stalwart Bill Oberst Jr, Gremlins Zach Galligan and was the last feature of the legendary Roddy Piper. A tough start for a Sunday but hell this is a horror festival!

Offensive is the latest offering from director Jon Ford (The Dead) . Set in rural France Offensive follows a retired American couple who inherit a house on the proviso they live there for a year first. In what seems a perfect and idyllic setting they soon find out the local youths might not be all they seem! Showing in it’s full uncut version (maybe for the last time) this is a wild ride. Previously only screened at Frightfest 2016 this is a must see!

Cruel Summer is not a new release , in fact it is out on UK DVD. However the Triple Six directors felt that Phil Escott and Craig Newman’s feature was something that NEEDED to be seen on the big screen. Starring Emmerdale’s Danny Miller, Cruel Summer shows how one decision can change lives and is a truly haunting tale based in a single day and you will not be able to shift this from deep in your soul!

tonedeathposter_zpsjt6szourWorld Premiere time as Triple Six welcome Tone Death. A techno producer is followed by a filmmaker as he attempts to invent a device that will send the consciousness of the listener to another level. When the experiments go horrifically wrong he goes to extreme levels to keep going and finding new volunteers. Directed by Roger Armstrong and John Hickman this is a real gem that is British through and through.

And to close Triple Six is the English Premiere of Ben Young’s stunning debut Hounds of Love . One of the most important genre releases this decade Hounds of Love is a masterclass in suspense. A young woman is randomly abducted from a suburban street by a disturbed couple. As she observes the dynamic between her captors she quickly realises she must drive a wedge between them if she is to survive. You will feel almost every emotion in the 110 minute run time and with acting performances to drool over then what a way to finish.

Running times are to be confirmed .

The full line-up is as follows

Hardware (1990) in 35mm followed by live Q&A with Richard Stanley.

Quarries (2016) European Premiere

rsz_t6_announcementTriple Six are also very happy to welcome Richard Stanley as our special guest for the entire weekend which will include an amazing live Q&A following the very rare 35mm screening of his seminal directorial debut Hardware (1990) . This will be something very special indeed and the Q&A will not only focus on Hardware but also Richard’s colourful and at times unbelievable career in cinema.

Triple Six Co-Director Andy Deen said “ We are so thrilled that we can finally announce the full line-up for Triple Six. As genre fans myself and Chris have spent the last 9 months organising Triple Six and now can’t wait to get until the weekend of May 27th & 28th to sit with real horror fans and watch a weekend of stunning and diverse independent horror cinema”. “The highlight will of course be the 35mm screening of the seminal horror sci-fi classic Hardware (1990) and the live Q&A with Richard Stanley , but in reality there will be many highlights throughout the weekend as we have such sights to show you

Triple Six Co-Director Chris Barnes also added “ The reasons behind starting Triple Six were our love for horror (both Andy and I run UK horror websites) but also we wanted to shine a blood red spotlight on the amazing talent in genre filmmaking. I mean when you look at the range of feature and short films we are showing you can see just what passion, vision and skill everyone involved in these films have”. “ Also we are grateful to AMC Manchester as they have fully supported a new horror festival and have made us feel part of the family. Their knowledge and professionalism ensures we will have a smooth and stunning weekend of big screen horror – and I mean BIG SCREEN!!

Andy finally added “When we set up Triple Six one of the main reasons was to showcase the British talent that we know is out there. Often British horror can be overlooked but at Triple Six we have three British features and six shorts and it is our honour to get these on the Big Screen where they should be seen

The Triple Six Horror Film Festival takes place at AMC Deansgate Manchester on May 27th & 28th and tickets are available on the AMC booking site here – http://bit.ly/2o1mswb

First full length trailer for Stephen King’s IT lands – watch it here!

OK time to fess up, when I heard of a re-make of IT being made into a feature then I was apoplectic with rage . I am a huge fan of the original 1990 mini-series and I can’t think of Pennywise without Tim Curry popping in my head. But the images over the last few months and recent teaser have whet my appetite BUT now the full length trailer has hit and by god it looks stunning. I was literally on the edge on my office chair after 30 seconds. It looks and has the feels of everything I could hope for.

So check it out here and let us know on the UK Horror Scene  twitter page – http://www.twitter.com/ukhorrorscene what you think!!

 

The Railway Carriage / Megan: Gets a special edition DVD release

rsz_ds1The Railway Carriage / Megan: Special edition DVD

The Railway Carriage will be released on DVD this April along with the short film Megan in a special edition DVD which will also feature trailers and interviews with lead actor Dean Sills. Dean Sills (Up North) plays the lead in both shorts and each one is directed by Ross Adgar.

‘The Railway Carriage’ is a psychological horror short film in which the lead character (John) is trapped in a dream like world where there is no easy escape. Throughout he is beset with flashbacks, vague memories that explain why he is trapped in a train carriage again and again. Is someone testing him? Has he done something so bad his mind has trapped itself in a strange repeating labyrinth? Through the memories and objects he finds in the carriage, John tries to find a way out of the nightmare world he has brought on himself!

‘The Railway Carriage’ made its international film premiere at Nightpiece film festival at The Edinburgh Fringe on Saturday 29th August 2015 and since then it has had much success with screening at a number of film festivals including Starburst International Film Festival in Manchester, last year. ‘The Railway Carriage’ was shot on location at Elsecar Heritage Railway in South Yorkshire, England, UK. Sills enjoyed working with the young director Ross Adgar so much that he teamed up with him again last year in the short film ‘Megan.’

dsmegan‘Megan’ In a post apocalyptic world one man embarks on a journey to find his girlfriend, Megan. Megan and her boyfriend Callum get separated during a virus outbreak in the summer of 2016, she pleads with Callum to promise to kill her if she becomes infected with the virus and ends up walking out when he won’t consider killing her if she  becomes infected, the story moves forward 5 years and deals with the impact and consequences of what happened and Callum’s quest to find Megan.

Ross Adgar’s short film boldly creates a parallel Britain living a dystopian reality with a great deal of help from the use of a black and white filter and some really great location shooting.

The film has not had a festival run like ‘The Railway Carriage’ and the only public screening so far was at Cast in Doncaster in the UK, last September. Ross Adgar is growing as a director and this was a much bigger shoot than ‘The Railway Carriage’ which he and  actor Dean Sills both found more challenging due to a number of reasons including the weather. The cast includes many actors from ‘Up North’, the Essex TV show written by Dean Sills and directed by Steve Call. Steve Call even helped out behind the camera in ‘Megan.’

THE FERRYMAN

PRODUCTION BEGINS IN MARCH 2017

“THE FERRYMAN”
After a failed suicide attempt, troubled and lonely teen MARA finds herself stalked by a malevolent entity.

As much a psychological drama as a horror film, The Ferryman explores important themes such as depression and alienation in the modern world, while also delivering a truly terrifying cinematic experience. In the writing process I took inspiration from classics such as Let The Right One In and Candyman, to create that deep sense of evil, while creating characters that the audience actually care about”.

“The Ferryman” is set to begin production in March 2017, with a fantastic cast that includes NICOLA HOLT as MARA; GARTH MAUNDERS as ROLAND; SHOBI RAE MCLEAN as JULIA; VELTON J. LISHKE as THE DETECTIVE; PAM ASHTON as THE NURSE; and PHILIP SCOTT-SHURETY as THE THERAPIST.

Shooting will take place in and around Manchester throughout March and April, with the production taking inspiration from Sundance hit “Tangerine” and shooting on the iPhone 7, allowing a level of intimacy rarely seen in the horror genre and pushing this advancing technology to its limits.
