Indie filmmaker Jeff Chitty is hard at work doing post-production on his upcoming feature, The Taking of Savannah, but that’s not stopping him from launching a few other ventures: exploitation/cult film download site Digital Grindhouse Retro and hardcore horror/splatterpunk short story download site Macabro Xtreme Publishing.
Here are the details:

Speaking of Chitty’s The Taking of Savannah, he sent us over an updated version of the film’s trailer, which you can watch below.
Five thugs and an unknowing girlfriend make a BIG mistake when they kidnap and hold young Hollywood “celebutante” Savannah Sondheim (heiress to the Sondheim tissue fortune) for a weekend to collect a ransom. When Savannah escapes, it becomes a brutal fight for survival where friends turn against one another and fight for their lives.
The film’s cast and crew list is as follows: SAVANNAH – Krystal Heib (Fetch), ASHLEY – Denise Carroll (Fetch), SCOTT – Antoinne Williams, SPENCER – Mike Ducey, FINN – Jeremy Everts, RIFF – Cameron Haines, and TORG – John D. Barnes. Dustin Adair penned the script from which Chitty directed, the DP was Robert P. Campbell, and the film’s makeup and FX were handled by Colleen May (Fetch, Nailbiter).
