We’ve been keeping our eyes on writer/director J.A. Steel’s Blood Fare, which blends horror with the Civil War, for some time now, and today a few new behind-the-scenes shots of filming at the University of Utah came across our desk, which of course we had to share with our readers.

Two of the photos can be found below – just click either of them to visit the Warrior Entertainment website, where the rest of them reside. For more info on the film “like” Blood Fare on Facebook, follow Blood Fare on Twitter, and visit the official Blood Fare website.

Synopsis:
Blood Fare is the tale of Corporal Henry Trout (S. Edward Meek, Wild Stallion), who in 1861 fought valiantly in a forgotten skirmish after the first battle of Bull Run. 150 Years later, he will come face-to-face with his descendants as the battle for blood continues on a haunted battlefield. Tyler (Brandi Lynn Anderson from the upcoming Syfy original series “Zeros”) and her brother, Chad (Adrian West), Henry’s fifth generation grandchildren, will challenge the very legend of Charon the Ferryman as the lines between the living and the dead become blurred.

Along with Gil Gerard, who plays the character of Professor Meade, mentor to the protagonist Tyler, Blood Fare’s cast includes Michelle Wolff (“NCIS”, “Chicago Hope”, “ER”, and “Providence”), international action star Kim Sønderholm (Westbrick Murders), Savannah Ostler (Vengeance), Bridget McManus (Wanted), Scott Beringer (Ocean’s Eleven and 21), Brenden Whitney, Alison Trouse, Thomas J. Post, Antonio Lexerot, and April Knight. Marcus Intheam, Salt Lake City star radio DJ of “Marcus in the Morning” on Z-ROCK 94.9, and “The Real L Word Live Lounge” host Natalie M. Garcia add live broadcast talent.

Steel began stock footage filming in mid-August with the dedicated members of the Utah Civil War Association, a re-enactment group, including Meek. Utah Civil War Association member Amanda Bowman Jones will be composing the soundtrack along with Rob Lambros of “The Street” band, who provided the soundtrack to Steel’s third feature Denizen, winner of the Park City Music Film Festival Bronze Medal for Excellence. Steel rounds out her crew with Director of Photography Michael B. Call (127 Hours), Special Makeup Effects Supervisor Chris Hanson (Hellboy, Underworld), and Executive Producer Jessica M. Bair.

From the cover of Kyd's first Vermintide OST

Get your headphones ready, Warhammer fans because State of Decay and Darksiders 2 composer Jesper Kyd is back to score the upcoming Warhammer title Vermintide 2! The game will be coming to PC and consoles early this year.

Kyd was inspired by Norse mythology, utilizing ancient tribal music as well as dark fantastical elements to build upon the acoustic soundscapes he composed for the first Vermintide game. Channeling his own Scandinavian roots, Kyd will blend Viking and Norse-inspired vocals with ritualistic percussion styles to create a unique soundtrack experience.

Three tracks from the score can be heard below.

Like Me – Will You Like This Dystopian Thriller?

Published

on

Starring Addison Timlin, Ian Nelson, Larry Fessenden

Directed by Robert Mockler


While Like Me is not dystopian in the classic science-fiction sense, it does aptly put the downer vibe across. If the present is abysmal, then the future is downright hopeless. We learn this as we follow an unhinged teenage loner called Kiya (Addison Timlin) on a hollow crime spree that she broadcasts on social media. At first the world “likes” her—with the exception of YouTube rival Burt (Ian Nelson), who disdainfully denounces her viral videos—but pride goes before the fall, and Kiya’s descent is spectacular.

If you’ve peeped the trailer for Like Me, then you’re probably expecting a horror movie. I mean, they’ve got the requisite menacing masked baddie and they’ve got genre icon Larry Fessenden in a major role—those are a couple of the key ingredients, right? Yes they are, but this simmering, shimmering stew of Natural Born Killers, Excision and King Kelly, it boils down to a whole lotta nothing. Like Me is sort of a drama, kind of a road trip flick, and almost a thriller. It succeeds at none yet does stand on its own as a compelling collection of cool visuals and pertinent performances. But is that enough?

While Kiya is a compelling character on the surface, there’s barebones beneath. Sure, she’s a Millennial mind-fed on random online clips and snappy soundbites—but what turned her into a psychopath? Was she born that way? Is social media to blame? We’ll never know, because not a hint is given. I don’t mind ambiguity, but even a morsel would have been welcome in this case. As Kiya ramps up her reckless exhibitionistic extremes, the stakes are never raised. In the end, who cares? Maybe that’s the point.

A word of warning: If you plan on watching this movie while chomping snacks…don’t. There is stomach-turning scene after vomit-inducing scene of orgiastic easting, binging, and the inevitable purging. I’m sure it’s all metaphorical mastication, a cutting comment on disposable consumption. I get it. But I don’t wanna look at it, again and again and again. Having said that, Like Me is an experimental film and in its presentation of such grotesquery, it’s quite accomplished. Montages, split-screens and jittered motions are scattered throughout, showing us all sorts of unpleasant things…Kudos to the editor.

I didn’t hate Like Me. But I do think one has to be in the mood for a movie such as this. It’s not an easy or entertaining watch, but it is a peculiar and thought-provoking one. There’s some style and mastery behind the camera, and I am curious to see what first-time writer-director Rob Mockler comes up with next.
