New Web Series Wolfpack of Reseda Debuts on MySpaceWolfpack of Reseda, a new original, scripted web series produced by Fox Digital Entertainment in conjunction with Kia Motors America, has premiered on MySpace. The series sees Ben March’s mundane, 20-something life transform when he becomes convinced he’s been bitten by a werewolf in the suburban Los Angeles sprawl of Reseda.

From the Press Release:
Mixing elements of workplace comedy with the conventions of horror, Wolfpack of Reseda is a unique take on office life, the supernatural, and “winning.” After forming his own “wolfpack” and becoming the alpha dog of Reseda, Ben’s moon is on the rise, but will it turn him irreversibly into the beast that will raise Hell in the Valley?

Wolfpack’s first season of eight episodes will debut weekly on MySpace starting today, February 16th, and the series will also be available through a variety of digital stores. Wolfpack is produced by Fox Digital Entertainment, a division of 20th Century Fox that is dedicated to creating new and innovative content for emerging distribution channels.

“Wolfpack exemplifies the kind of storytelling and distribution that is ideal for the current digital media landscape,” said Matt Glotzer, senior vice president, Fox Digital Entertainment. “We are very excited to be working closely with Kia and MySpace to bring this original and darkly hilarious story to a broad audience on a wide variety of platforms.”

“We’re thrilled by the opportunity to partner with Fox Digital Entertainment and Kia on the debut of Wolfpack, the first in a new and growing slate of must-watch programming on MySpace,” said Roger Mincheff, the new president of MySpace Entertainment. “The great, up-and-coming talent behind Wolfpack is the perfect complement to the MySpace platform, where compelling, original content will be a point of distinction.”

As the exclusive brand partner of Wolfpack, Kia Motors will utilize product placement and other advertising inventory to promote the award-winning Soul urban passenger vehicle.
“Kia has always embraced new entertainment platforms and properties in the constantly changing media landscape, and in working with Ensemble to partner with Fox Digital Entertainment and MySpace, Wolfpack of Reseda provides a unique outlet to share the innovative design, technology and fun-to-drive performance of vehicles such as our wildly popular Soul to entirely new audiences,” said Michael Sprague, vice president, marketing & communications, KMA.

Synopsis:
Ben March hates his life. The torture of listening to motivational speeches from the slimy head salesman at work, the depressing apartment and foul smells of his Animal Control officer roommate at home, and – most of all – the crappy car that shuttles him between the two. There seems to be no escape from his suburban despair until one night he is bitten by a mysterious creature in the woods. Could he now be a werewolf?

Suddenly he has the instincts of an alpha dog. For the first time he pushes aside the mundane to do what he really wants with his life. Forming his own “wolfpack,” Ben makes his lair in Reseda, and has the run of the Valley. But soon the threat of the murderous beast within him begins to rear its ugly head.

Night of the Living Dead 4K and The Silence of the Lambs Come to the Criterion Collection

Published

on

It’s been a long time coming for these two classics, especially Night of the Living Dead after the ridiculously bad transfer put out by Mill Creek Entertainment, whose transfer was supposedly remastered from a new 2K scan. I swear I thought it was some kind of a joke when I first put it on to watch. In any event…

IndieWire is reporting that horror classics Night of the Living Dead and The Silence of the Lambs will be added to the 2018 Criterion Collection, a hallmark label for home video cinephiles.

According to the site, Criterion will release a new 4K digital restoration of The Silence of the Lambs, which has been approved by the movie’s cinematographer Tak Fujimoto. Included on the DVD and Blu-ray sets are 35 minutes of deleted scenes and audio commentary from 1994 featuring the late Jonathan Demme (director), stars Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins, screenwriter Ted Tally, and former FBI agent John Douglas.

Night of the Living Dead will also be released in 4K with never-before-seen 16mm dailies included as a bonus feature(!).

These will be added in February of 2018 so make sure you save up some cash after the holidays!

DIS Review – Not for the Faint of Heart!

Published

on

Starring Bill Oberst, Jr., Lori Jo Hendrix, Peter Gonzales Falcon

Directed by Adrian Corona


I’ve made this claim many a time on this website before, and in the company of film friends as well: Bill Oberst Jr. is one of those actors that can literally be thrust into ANY role, and deliver a performance with so much harnessed electricity that you couldn’t believe that it was possible. I was the lucky recipient chosen to get a look at his latest project, titled DIS, and I think that I can honestly say – this is the stuff that nightmares are constructed of.

Directed by Adrian Corona, this 60-minute dive into the black depths of hell, and in actuality DIS is located between circles # 6 and 9 in Dante’s Divine Comedy, and trust me when I tell you – there’s not a shred of comedic relief in this demented presentation. Oberst Jr plays an ex-soldier named Ariel, and his seemingly harmless jaunt through the woods will become anything but that, and judging from the film’s opening scenes, you are meant to feel as uncomfortable about this watch as any you might have checked out in recent memory.

Perversion is the norm here, and lord help you if you’re caught where you shouldn’t be…my skin’s crawling just thinking about what I saw. Ariel’s travels are basically dialogue-free, but it only adds to the infinite levels of creepiness – you can tell he’s being stalked, and the distance between he and the horrors that await are closing in rather quickly.

Visually by itself, this hour-long chiller can sell tickets without any assistance – hollowed-out buildings and long sweeping shots of a silent forest give the movie that look of complete desolation. Sliced up into three acts, the film wastes no time in setting up the story of a killer needing fresh blood to appease his Mandrake garden – seriously guys, I can’t type as much flashy stuff as there needs to be in order to describe this innately disturbing production.

If you’re one of those types who tends to shy away from the graphic side of things, then I’d HIGHLY advise you to keep your TV tuned to the Hallmark Channel for some holiday entertainment, because this one registers high on the “I can’t believe someone thought of this” meter. So the quick recap is this: Oberst Jr in a standout performance, visual excellence, and an unshakable sense of debasement on a cellular level – keep the kiddies out of the living room with this one. Corona should be lauded (or locked up – just kidding) for his work on this one – HIGHLY recommended, and one that I’ll throw down as a top 5 for me in 2017.

Summary

Director Corona should be lauded (or locked up – just kidding) for his work on this one – HIGHLY recommended!
