Colin Campbell’s New Short Emits The Sound of Fear

Published

on

Colin Campbell is a name you should be familiar with as we brought his awesome short Girl at the Door to your attention a few years ago. Now we’re back with The Sound of Fear, an eight-minute sequence from a feature that he’s in the process of getting financed.

You can check out what Campbell has in store for us in his new action/suspense/horror film right here!

Written and directed by Colin Campbell, The Sound of Fear stars Sandra Mae Frank, Chiara Aurelia, Kimberly Atkinson, Derek Chariton, Joshua Dov, Joe Fria, and Rebecca Larsen. It’s produced by Elyse Katz and Campbell with cinematography by Andrew Aiello and music by Robert Gates.

In The Sound of Fear, a young deaf woman, Ivy, inadvertently witnesses a group of meth addicts kill a sheriff in a remote resort town. On the run, Ivy races through the empty streets looking for help. She finds a vacationing family and tries to get them to call the police, but they can’t understand her. The addicts burst in and kill the mom and dad. Ivy and the couple’s 13-year-old daughter, Molly, flee.

Ivy and Molly struggle to communicate and to stay one step ahead of the killers who are relentlessly hunting them down. At certain key moments, the film takes us into Ivy’s world, stripping away the sounds and plunging the audience into a terrifying silence. Ivy can’t hear them coming for her, but she’s resourceful and smart. She has to learn to use sounds against the killers if she wants to keep Molly and herself alive.

Frank, the critically acclaimed star of the Tony-nominated Broadway musical Spring Awakening, plays Ivy. Campbell tells us, “As a deaf actress, Sandra brings an authenticity to the role. She seizes the opportunity with a fierce passion and delivers a powerful performance; the audience can’t help but root for her. She is a powerhouse of an actress, a genuine Broadway star, but unknown in Hollywood because of a lack of opportunity for deaf actors.”

Along with the short, we’ve included an interview Campbell and Frank did with Tru Biz on the Sign Language Channel – dig in!

Hollywood Science Fiction Museum Founder Arrested on Child Pornography Charges

Published

Floyd "Huston" Huddleston

In the past couple of years, we’ve seen the powers that be in Hollywood face a reckoning as more and more people who have suffered at the hands of the elite come forward with their stories of pain and horror. Each new story helps give confidence to those who would otherwise remain silent, their experiences that would otherwise be hidden given the chance to have light shed upon it. While it’s painful to see people we once respected be exposed, such pain is necessary so that future generations can hopefully experience these kinds of events at drastically reduced rates. After all, we’ll never be able to completely stop these kinds of actions but we can do our best to create effective and recognizable deterrents.

It’s come to our attention that recently Hollywood Science Fiction Museum founder Floyd “Huston” Huddleston III was arrested by Los Angeles police on three charges, including Penal Code 288.3 (contacting a minor with intent to commit a felony), Penal Code 311.4 (a crime to hire, employ, use, persuade, or coerce a minor to participate in the production of child porn), and Penal Code 311.11(a) (possession of obscene matter depicting a minor engaging in sexual conduct). Huddleston, who pleaded “not guilty” to all charges, is being held on a $750,000 bail with a court date of June 12. All information was found via the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department website.

What’s troubling is that we’re seeing reports of people claiming that Huston, through various means, is selling donated props from the Museum on various auction websites in order to raise money for his bail.

Makeup artist Gigi Bannister, who worked on Phantasm IV: Oblivion and Phantasm: Ravager wrote in a Facebook comment, “I’m fielding inquiries on this end too from Horror and Phantasm Phans asking about an exclusive set of Phantasm II sphere props that we think Don Coscarelli had to have donated and then Huston SOLD! This is history we can never recover!” [Update: I got off the phone with Gigi who is working to confirm that these are indeed the official sphere props. She will then let us know.]

A Facebook post by self-proclaimed ex-Hollywood Science Fiction Museum volunteer Loretta Lightningbolt states that she and several other volunteers, “…discovered through our own research that museum founder Floyd “Huston” Huddleston was not on a long vacation, as we had been told back in April. We were sickened to discover he has been charged with three counts of sexual crimes against a minor, something none of us want any association with.” She then continued by stating that she and seven other volunteers have, “…resigned from our respective positions.” On top of the volunteers leaving en masse, other members of the Museum are removing themselves from any affiliation, including Mick Garris (The Shining, The Stand).

The Hollywood Science Fiction Museum’s only comment on this situation was a tweet that posted the arrest record. Since then, the museum’s website has erased nearly every instance of Huddleston’s name and likeness. Furthermore, the Hollywood Horror Museum, which was created by the Hollywood Science Fiction Museum founders, has removed its Board of Directors page on its website.

We will follow this story up with more details as they become available.

Later this year we will see the release of the new horror anthology Nightmare Cinema. The film comes ot us from directors Mick Garris, Joe Dante, David Slade, Ryuhei Kitamura, and Alejandro Brugues and stars Mickey Rourke as The Projectionist.

Today we have word via the MPAA that the horror anthology has been given an R rating for “horror violence/gore, grisly images, language, some sexuality, and brief nude images.” And all of that sounds like good times to me!

Are you excited about this new horror anthology? Make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

Nightmare Cinema will premiere at this year’s Fantasia International Film Festival.

Synopsis:

A series of down-on-their-luck individuals enter the decrepit and spine-chilling Rialto theater, only to have their deepest and darkest fears brought to life on the silver screen by The Projectionist – a mysterious, ghostly figure who holds the nightmarish futures of all who attend his screenings. By the time our patrons realize the truth, escape is no longer an option. For once the ticket is torn, their fate is sealed at Nightmare Cinema.
