The Ninth Passenger rundown via press release:

Clay Epstein’s Film Mode Entertainment announces the World Market Premiere screening and AFM debut of the new thriller The Ninth Passenger. The film stars Jesse Metcalfe (“Dallas”) as well as a talented ensemble of veteran and up-and-coming actors that include Tom Maden (MTV’s “Scream,”), Alexia Fast (“Manhattan”), Timothy V. Murphy (The Lone Ranger), and Cinta Laura Kiehl (After the Dark).

From the executive producer of It Follows, Corey Large, The Ninth Passenger uncovers a group of college students on a spontaneous midnight sea voyage aboard a luxury yacht. The adventure turns horrific when they drift to a dark island and are hunted one by one by a mysterious ninth passenger.

Not everyone is what they seem in this spine-tingling excursion. “Audiences are going to have a lot of fun with The Ninth Passenger. The filmmakers have made a really entertaining film with great characters and great twist at the end,” said Epstein.

The film is perfectly positioned to captivate audiences across the global marketplace. And with over 3 million followers on social media from the U.S. to China and everywhere in between, Cinta Laura Kiehl (After the Dark) brings even more star power and a dedicated audience to The Ninth Passenger.

Stay for the AFM World Market Premiere of Blood Bound starring Eden Brolin (“Beyond”) daughter of multiple award-winning actor Josh Brolin, Joseph Melendez (“Ozark”), and Emmy-Award Winner Eric Nelsen (“The Bay). The film is written and directed by Richard LeMay, who recently directed Dementia 13, originated/funded and owned by NBC/Universal.

Blood Bound rundown via press release:

Every 25 years, it begins. Bound to an ancient pact, a family of unlimited power descends upon a small rural town to sacrifice four human lives, one being a member of their own family. This Rosemary’s Baby meets Drag Me to Hell thriller takes a dark look into how far the human spirit can take one soul in it’s most desperate hour. Layered with plot twists and conflicted characters, Blood Bound follows six people as they carry out their destiny to their ultimate horror.

“Blood Bound is the perfect addition to our already impressive line-up of films.” Said Mathilde Epstein, COO of Film Mode Entertainment, “We are quickly becoming the home for elevated genre films as evident in our success with films like The Good Neighbor starring James Caan. Our roster consists of a variety of these commercially viable titles that buyers and audiences around the world the world have been asking for.”

Film Mode Entertainment has indeed become a home for elevated genre. Both The Ninth Passenger and Blood Bound are highly-suspenseful films that are sure to entice buyers and keep viewers on the edge of their seats. Screening for the very first time, buyers will have a chance to see what makes the new thrillers such commercially viable films.

“I’m thrilled to be working with Film Mode to screen Blood Bound at AFM,” said Richard LeMay, writer/director of Blood Bound. “This is a great opportunity to show people this dark, creepy film, and I think people are going to be blown away by Eden Brolin’s performance.”

The premiere screenings took place on Thursday, November 2 at 1 PM at Laemmle-5 (The Ninth Passenger) and at 3 PM in the Ocean Screening Room (Blood Bound). Additional screening appointments can be made with Film Mode Entertainment.

Samuel L. Jackson Wraps on M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass

Published

on

That was fast. It was just two weeks ago that we shared your first on-set look at Samuel L. Jackson as Mr. Glass in M. Night Shyamalan’s upcoming Unbreakable/Split sequel, and today we have news that Jackson has wrapped his role.

The update comes to us directly from Shyamalan himself who took to Twitter to let us all know that not only has Sam Jackson wrapped his role in Glass, but there is only one week left of filming overall.

Here is his tweet:

Does this mean the crew has gathered up enough footage to give us all a teaser trailer in the near future? I would think so, so let’s not be too surprised if that’s just what we get before the end of the year.

Fingers crossed.

The film is written & directed by M. Night Shyamalan and stars Bruce Willis, James McAvoy, Anya-Taylor Joy, Sarah Paulson, Spencer Treat Clark, Charlayne Woodard, and Samuel L. Jackson as Mr. Glass.

Glass hits theaters January 18, 2019.

Synopsis:

Following the conclusion of Split, Glass finds Dunn pursuing Crumb’s superhuman figure of The Beast in a series of escalating encounters, while the shadowy presence of Price emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men.

Published

on

Here at Dread Central, we are always on the lookout to peep and share cool new horror shorts from around the web. Case in point, director Tony Morales’ Hada.

The short film was selected for 260 festivals and received 50 awards, and you can now check it out in its entirety below.

I watched it this past weekend and there were more than a few shots contained within that chilled my bones. All about those feet moving up onto the bed. Brr. That’s all I’ll say.

Actually, I’ll say a (tiny) bit more: Someone needs to give Morales a shot at one of the new Conjuring-universe films. I think he’d knock it out of the park.

Watch the flick and you’ll see what I mean.

Again, you can check out the short below and then after giving the film a viewing, make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below!

You can become a fan of the short film on Facebook HERE.

Synopsis:

Tonight Hada comes to visit Daniel because his last child tooth has fallen out. What Daniel doesn´t expect is that his worst enemy is the light.

Dread Central: How is the film coming along?

Rocky Gray: The film is now completed and we are getting the perks out to our Indiegogo backers. The backers and Death By Festival got to see the first cut of the film in October and they loved it so we’re very excited to get the film out to everyone else very soon.

DC: What can expect from this anthology?

RG: Expect to have a lot of Halloween themed fun. Each segment has its own flavor so the pacing and the look change throughout the film. With masked killers, vampires, scarecrows, tricksters and old hags there’s something for everyone.

DC: Will there be a sequel?

RG: If there was a demand for it we would make it happen!

Sounds good to us. Thanks for chatting with us, Rocky!
