Phase 4 Films Shows the World its Scar

Published

on

It’s been years since last we heard anything about the Angela Bettis flick Scar 3D, but lo and behold you’ll be getting a chance to finally see the movie a lot sooner than you think. This Friday to be exact!

From the Press Release
Berry Meyerowitz, President & CEO of Phase 4 Films, announced today the landmark launch of director Jed Weintrob’s 3D horror film, SCAR, the first ever stereoscopic, 3D, video-on-demand film release via all major cable broadcasters on Friday, October 1, 2010. The 3D film will be available to consumers who own 3D HDTV sets and liquid crystal shutter glasses. Phase 4 will also offer a traditional 2D version of SCAR on VOD on the same day.

SCAR is the horrific tale of a small town urban legend that becomes a modern day nightmare. Years ago, Joan Burrows became a victim of Ernie Bishop, a crazed undertaker with a penchant for mutilating young girls in his hidden morgue torture chamber. Joan escaped Bishop’s sadistic clutches and killed him, becoming a local hero. But when Joan returns to her small town home to visit relatives, someone begins copying Bishop’s horrific modus operandi. As teenage girls go missing once more and the bloody clues gather, the police pinpoint Joan as their prime suspect, forcing her to face her deepest fears to apprehend the maniac.

The deal for SCAR was negotiated by Larry Greenberg, Phase 4 Films’ SVP of Acquisitions, and producer Norman Twain on behalf of the filmmakers.

“If Freddie Krueger, Michael Myers, Jason Vorhees and Jigsaw had a party, they would have invited Ernie Bishop. This film is a total crowd pleaser for those that love to be scared out of their minds, and we are really excited about taking it to audiences,” says Meyerowitz. “With the popularity of 3D films and as more consumers increasingly recreate the theater experience by buying 3D televisions, SCAR is a groundbreaking independent film positioned to tap into this growing market.”

“The reception to this film has been amazing for us,” says Twain. “We are ecstatic about working with Phase 4 and look forward to a successful VOD run in North America.”

“I grew up with the wave of 3D horror films in the 1980s, and I was at the theater for every one of those movies, so when I was offered the opportunity to make an homage to the classic slasher horror films in the new digital stereoscopic 3D, I jumped at it,” says Weintrob. “It’s incredible how much more visceral the horror becomes in this new generation of 3D. We literally had someone in the audience pass out at our first test screening!”

SCAR is written by Zack Ford and stars Angela Bettis, Kirby Bliss Blanton, Ben Cotton and Christopher Titus. The film was produced by Norman Twain, Courtney Potts and Jamie Gordon, and executive produced by Len Koch, Bob Silberberg, Daniel Hank, Douglas Berquist and Allison Powell. Early next year, Phase 4 will release SCAR as a dual format combo pack, including an anaglyph 3D version and a traditional 2D version.

SCAR will be available on all major cable providers beginning October 1st.

Freddy’s Greatest Hits Vinyl Re-issue Is a Must-Own

Published

on

Strange Disc Records has just announced that it will be releasing “Freddy’s Greatest Hits – The Elm Street Group” on vinyl starting this Wednesday with pre-orders expected to ship in January 2018.

Not only that but Mondo announced they will be releasing an exclusive variant pressed on “Freddy Sweater” striped vinyl. This LP from Mondo is limited to 400 and will cost you $25.

For those who might not know, “Freddy’s Greatest Hits” was originally released in 1987. The record contains nine tracks (covers, originals, and instrumentals) with Robert Englund doing the voice of Freddy over the top.

I don’t know about you but this has just made my list of must-own items. But I’d prefer an original copy. That said an original copy is probably hundreds of buck on eBay as opposed to this version for a mere $25 bucks. Not bad.

That is One Gigantic Steampunk Squid…

Published

on

Perhaps one of the greatest sci-fi adventures novels ever written, Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea was a landmark book, one that was decades ahead of its time. The story follows the crew of the Nautilus, a submarine commanded by Captain Nemo, as they venture in search of a giant sea monster. It was the basis for several film adaptations and the character of Captain Nemo played a pivotal role in the graphic novel series The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

So why am I bringing this up, you ask? Because Tor Books is releasing Nemo Rising, a sequel, this Christmas! Written by C. Courtney Joyner, the story once again follows Nemo, although this book sees him a prisoner that must be pardoned by President Ulysses S. Grant in order to face an onslaught of more sea monsters.

Normally, I wouldn’t bother you all with this, but I happen to have a soft spot in my heart for 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and the cover art for the book is fucking epic! I’ve always been a fan of cephalopods, and I’ve found the steampunk aesthetic to be pretty fascinating. Combine them both along with giant monsters, and you damn well better believe that I’m 100% into it! Plus, it’s wrapped itself around the Nautilus, which is already a giant vessel, so now I’m wondering just how large these mechanical monstrosities are…

Nemo Rising will be released on hardcover from Tor Books on December 26, 2017.

Synopsis:
Sea monsters are sinking ships up and down the Atlantic Coast. Enraged that his Navy is helpless against this onslaught and facing a possible World War as a result, President Ulysses S. Grant is forced to ask for assistance from the notorious Captain Nemo, in Federal prison for war crimes and scheduled for execution.

Grant returns Nemo’s submarine, the infamous Victorian Steampunk marvel Nautilus, and promises a full Presidential pardon if Nemo hunts down and destroys the source of the attacks. Accompanied by the beautiful niece of Grant’s chief advisor, Nemo sets off under the sea in search of answers. Unfortunately, the enemy may be closer than they realize…
