Scorpio Film Releasing is currently three weeks into production on its newest feature, the Richard Griffin-directed Murder University, which is being shot entirely in Rhode Island, and we have artwork, an image gallery, and some early details to share.

From the Press Release:
An homage to slasher films of the early 1980’s, Murder University is on pace to be SFR’s most violent outing. Griffin’s past films include Nun of That, Atomic Brain Invasion, and The Disco Exorcist, all tone and style-perfect incarnations of the B-movie trends of their respected eras.

Director Richard Griffin says: “Even though we just passed the one-third mark of production, Murder University has turned out to be our most blood-soaked feature to date. It’s wonderful having such talented special effects artists as Eric Rodrigues and Jordan Pacheco to create such gruesome works of art. I know horror fans are pretty much fed up to the eyeballs with CG gore and want a return to the hand-crafted artistry of practical make-up effects, and Murder University delivers bucketfuls of the gruesome groceries!”

Producer Ted Marr adds: “The entire cast is really top-notch with our three leads – Jamie Dufault, Michael Thurber, and Sammi Acampora – giving performances that easily rival anything seen in a multi-million dollar blockbuster. It’s so important in a horror film that you actually care about the characters you put in harm’s way… and our actors really make these people three-dimensional and not just the typical “Dead Meat Characters” you see in most slasher films of this type.”

Griffin continues: “For all those horror fans who are sick to death of found footage films and Paranormal Activity riffs, I promise Murder University will be a gore-filled, gourmet cinematic cheeseburger you can enjoy with a bunch of friends and your best six-pack!”

Murder University is written by acclaimed New England playwright Lenny Schwartz and produced by Ted Marr and Kristen Kayala. For more info visit the Murder University Facebook page.

VENOM Trailer is Pure Action Horror

Published

on

Surprise news for those of you still up late as Sony has dropped the first trailer for Venom, their standalone film based on the character of the same name. For those of you who were wondering how this film might stand up in today’s age of “some are good and some are bad” comic book-to-film adaptations, I’m going to lean towards the former. While I’ll try to remain skeptical, something about the way this movie is looking is grabbing my attention and has me quite excited. Apart from the requisite action that all superhero movies have these days, there’s a wonderful amount of horror throughout the trailer.

Check it out for yourself and let us know what you think in the comments!

One of Marvel’s most enigmatic, complex and badass characters comes to the big screen, starring Academy Award® nominated actor Tom Hardy as the lethal protector Venom.

Directed by Ruben Fleischer, Venom stars Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Scott Haze, and Reid Scott. It infects theaters on October 5, 2018.

POLL: Who Should Direct Wan and King’s TOMMYKNOCKERS?

Published

on

It was just last month that we learned James Wan (Saw, Insidious, The Conjuring) is going to be producing a new big screen adaptation of Stephen King’s The Tommyknockers.

While I’m sad that it seems Wan will not be directing the film, I think it’s a great time to bring up the question: Well, then who the hell SHOULD?

You can find my top 3 choices below and then make sure to let us know who you think should direct James Wan’s upcoming adaptation of Stephen King’s The Tommyknockers in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

ABC mini-series’ executive producer Larry Sanitsky: “It is an allegorical tale of addiction (Stephen was struggling with his own at the time), the threat of nuclear power, the danger of mass hysteria and the absurdity of technical evolution run amuck. All are as relevant today as the day the novel was written. It is also a tale about the eternal power of love and the grace of redemption.”

Stephen King’s The Tommyknockers will be produced by James Wan (The Conjuring), Roy Lee (Stephen King’s IT) and the ABC mini-series’ executive producer Larry Sanitsky.

Synopsis:

A town in Maine that falls under the influence of a dangerous gas from an unearthed spacecraft. The gas begins to transform the people, giving them enhanced abilities, but also making them violent and subject to an alien hive mentality. One man, thanks to a steel plate in his head, is immune to the effects and tries to stop the townspeople.
