Trick of the Witch Begins Production

Published

on

Was The Craft really the last time we had a good witch movie? (I know I’m probably alone in my appreciation of Dario Argento’s Mother of Tears so won’t presume everyone’s on board with that one.) Today we got word that indie filmmaker Chris Morrissey will be trying his hand at the subgenre with a flick that’s got some serious potential. Read on for the skinny!

From today’s press release:

Inspired by Italian witchcraft Stregheria, the film stars actress Share Cherrie in the leading role along with Owen Alabado, Suzy Cote, and Australian cult star Abigail De’Ath. Trick of the Witch centers on a group of fashion models that get tangled up in a terrifying witchcraft curse while stranded at a secluded mansion during a photo shoot.

With the stunning success of recent micro-budget films like Paranormal Activity, Morrissey plans to launch Trick of the Witch with a grassroots release in Los Angeles and New York later this year. “We are making a very fun, scary film with so many talented people involved. We don’t want this film to go straight to DVD and get lost in the shuffle. It is meant for the big screen. If major distributors don’t jump on this project at the start, then we will do whatever we can to self-distribute and build word of mouth. If I have to travel from city to city each week showing the film, then I will. Times have changed for indie filmmakers, and there are so many ways to build an audience these days that it would be silly to not go for it.”

While getting your film into theaters is easier said than done, it’d be really great to see Morrissey get a bona fide witch film on the big screen. We’re pulling for him and, as always, we’ll bring you the latest and greatest on Trick of the Witch as we have it. In the meantime keep your eyes on the official Trick of the Witch website for more.

Zac Efron Looks Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile as Ted Bundy

Published

on

We told you a while back that Zac Efron would be assuming the role of charismatic serial killer Ted Bundy in Oscar-nominated documentary filmmaker Joe Berlinger’s new film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (that title is a wondrous mouthful); and today Efron himself took to Twitter to share the first image of himself as Bundy. Check it out!

Michael Werwie wrote the script for the project, which is told through the perspective of Elizabeth Kloepfer, Bundy’s longtime girlfriend, who went years denying the accusations against Bundy but ultimately turned him in to the police. Only nearing his execution, when Bundy began talking about his extensive and heinous murders, did Kloepfer, and the rest of the world, learn the true scope of his numerous and grizzly murders.

Principal photography began back in October 2017.

Make a Date With The Devil and Father Amorth

Published

on

Well, that headline’s not entirely accurate… you wouldn’t want to be a third wheel now, would you? What we’re talking about here is William Friedkin’s new documentary The Devil and Father Amorth. In it Friedkin witnesses first-hand the work of the Vatican’s in-house exorcist; and if that doesn’t pique your interest, I don’t know what will!

Deadline is reporting today that we can expect to see the flick sometime this spring in theaters via The Orchard.

Known as the “Dean of Exorcists,” Father Amorth (who turned 92 not so long ago) has performed thousands of exorcism rituals to rid evil from the human body.

In the early 1970s when I directed The Exorcist, I had not witnessed an exorcism; but I wondered how close I had come to portraying reality,” Friedkin tells the site. “I had been curious to meet Father Amorth for many years; and when he granted permission to meet and film him in Rome last May, it was the opportunity to complete the circle and see how close that film came to reality.
