Fan films are always exciting to behold but every now and then – one comes along that sets itself apart from the normal indie, fan made fare. Enter Never Hike Alone – an interesting take on the Friday the 13th mythos.
Debuting on You Tube and Vimeo on Friday the 13th – Never Hike Alone takes a found footage – reality TV approach to bringing our hockey mask wearing bad ass to life.
Check out this kick ass trailer:
Basically pitting a survialist against Jason Vorhee’s, Never Hike Alone stars Andrew Leighty as Kyle Mcleod and was written and directed by Vincente DiSanti.
Mainly funded through a Kickstarter campaign – Never Hike Alone makes it’s debut tomorrow – Friday Oct. 13th via You Tube and Vimeo. Check back here throughout the day and when it’s live for all to see – I’ll post the link here.
For all the info you need on Never Hike Alone – head on over to the Womp Stomp Films site and have alook around.
You know me – always a sucker for damn Bigfoot movie and it looks like another one is coming down the pike. Titled Big Legend – here’s what the big guy has in store for us this time:
“The film follows an ex-soldier named Tyler (Makely) who ventures out into the Pacific Northwest wilderness in hopes of finding answers to the disappearance of his fiance (Spiro). After a series of strange and violent occurrences, Tyler finds himself relying on a mysterious poacher (Robinson) who just might have the answers he is looking for.”
Kevin Makely, Todd A. Robinson, Summer Spiro, and Amanda Wyss star. Yeah – that’s Amanada Wyss from A Nightmare on Elm Street fame.
No word on release date yet but – I do have the key art and a couple of stills for you. Let’s have a look – shall we?
Temple has been bouncing around for a while – changed directors – you know the drill. Turns out that they actually got it made though and they’ve gone and got themselves a poster and a nifty little trailer.
Here’s the brief synopsis:
“Three Americans on a trip to Japan are fascinated by a haunted temple, and, despite warnings from the villagers, decide to spend a night there.”
The film is directed by Michael Barrett who is of no relation to scripter Simon Barrett and stars Logan Huffman, Brandon Tyler Sklenar, and Natalia Warner.
With dialogue like “Well, you’re not gonna find a house shark in a mall – that’s where mall sharks are”, you know you are in for something a bit off the wall and once you view this lovely little trailer for House Shark – there will be no doubt left in your mind.
“When Frank (Trey Harrison) finds his happy home under attack by a dangerous but largely unknown breed of shark, he’s enlists the aid of the world’s only “House Shark” Expert, Zachary (Michael Merchant), and a grizzled former real estate agent, Abraham (Wes Reid), to embark on a desperate quest to destroy the beast and claim back his life.”
Wayne W. Johnson, Nathan Bonk, Melissa LaMartina, Jennie Russo, Samantha Varga, Edward Mastin and Brett Janeski battle the deadly beast. Ron Bonk wrote and directs.
This one is aiming for a Spring 2018 roll out. We will hopefully be seeing it in the festival circuit soon!
Oh that Scream Factory – nary a week goes by that we don’t get news of some kind of release that you know is going to end up in your collection. This time the Factory shines their light on George Romero with the announcement that Land of the Dead will be making an appearence in their much loved Collector’s Edition Blu-ray collection.
As we have become acustomed – Facebook is where the info gets debuted – here’s what they posted:
“We’ll thrilled to add another George A Romero film to our sinister roster this year in the form of LAND OF THE DEAD!
Project is still in progress but here’s what we can tell you so far:
– The Blu-ray release will be branded as a “Collector’s Edition” (of course!) that will come with a slipcover (guaranteed for three months after its original release date.)
– The newly-commissioned front-facing artwork you see pictured comes to us from The CRP Group (Rabid, Firestarter, Serial Mom). The reverse side of the wrap will showcase the original theatrical poster art design.
– Bonus features & specs are still in progress and will be announced sometime in Sept but we can confirm that this will be a 2-disc set and will include new extras plus the theatrical and unrated versions of the film.”
So – we’re going to have to wait a bit for those special features but we can tell you that this one will be hitting on Oct. 24th and we do have a look at that new artwork:
If you are so inclined – you can pre-order this baby now and if you do you’ll be rewarded with a rolled copy of that kick ass artwork you’re looking at right now. Go get it horror fans!
