Axelle Carolyn sure has come a long way. From Dread Central contributor, to published author, to movie star. How can you not admire her tenacity and skill set? Next up - Axelle will be trying her hand at directing for Intandem Films with The Haunted.
This year's Fantasia Film Festival is home to one of the longest lists of feature films we've seen in all our years of reporting on the fest. In addition they'll be screening several short films. Info on one of them, Axelle Carolyn's The Last Post, just landed in our inbox; and of course we have to share!
As interest in director A.D. Barker’s headsy post-apocalyptic film A Reckoning, starring Leslie Simpson (Dog Soldiers, The Descent) and Axelle Carolyn (Centurion), grows, so does the number of images that are emerging from this brilliant film. Dread Central just received ten new stills for our readers to check out.
The folks behind the little-British-horror/psychological-movie-that-could, A Reckoning (aka Straw Man), have made good on their promise to debut a second new poster for the film; and of course we have it for you right here, hot off the presses! Synopsis:
Things are coming together for the little-seen British horror/psychological film A Reckoning (aka Straw Man), directed by Andrew Barker. Here is the first of two new posters for the movie.
Adam Krajczynski. Remember that name as I am sure you will see it again; his talents as a cinematographer cannot go unrecognized. Shooting the little-seen (but that will hopefully be changing soon) film A Reckoning on an unbelievably tiny budget, Krajczynski’s vision is right there on the screen – beautiful, eerie, stunning and haunting.
Horror fans everywhere should recognize the name “Leslie Simpson” from such favorites as Dog Soldiers, where he played Pvt. Terry Milburn, The Descent where he played one of the horrific Crawlers and Doomsday where he was Carpenter, one of the soldiers that were to escort heroine Eden Sinclair into the “Hot Zone”.
Writer/director Andrew Barker is a man with a mission. For his first feature film, the stunning and gut-wrenching A Reckoning (review here), his mission is to get the film out to the fans who so desperately want to see this movie and for good reason - it's excellent!
Never let it be said that we don't work quickly. Just about an hour ago we brought you a news item regarding what could be Neil Marshall's next project in which the news was interrupted by an overzealous fan in the audience. Now there's a bit more to tell.
You know what's frustrating? People who don't know when to shut up who interrupt others that are actually talking about something interesting or big. Case in point ... the first word on what could be Neil Marshall's next project.
We first told you about Blood + Roses way back in 2008. Never let it be said we don't keep tabs on things around here for ya! The toothy little vampire flick is available now in the States, and all you have to do to see it is order yourself a copy! From the Press Release

It's always wonderful to see one of our own make good, or for that matter - great, and that's exactly the case here!
