Buffalo, NY-based Buffalo Nickel Productions is in production on a trio new feature films: Decayed, Banshee, and Frankenstein’s Patchwork Monster. Emil J. Novak, co-founder of the Buffalo Screams Horror Film Festival, is the driving creative force behind all three films.

From the Press Release:
Decayed, a quasi-anthology of four interlinked tales involving a worldwide plague of “zuvembies,” is the closest to completion, with the rough cut being fine tuned now. The stories feature characters adrift on a boat, a la Alfred Hitchcock’s Lifeboat; members of a pirate radio station spreading information that the government wishes to contain; researchers seeking a cure to the plague; and the patrons of a bar who discover it’s sometimes better to go home early. The film showcases special make-up effects by Arick Szymecki, Andrew Lavin, and Amy Toth of Anomaly Effects, and many stills from the production appear in the new book Filming the Undead: How to Make Your Own Zombie Movie by fellow make-up effects guru Rod Durick of Zombified Studios.

Banshee, produced in association with Nightmare Kinetics, is also in post-production with some additional shooting planned. This film brings the classic Irish monster and her brood of hungry beasties to the Central Terminal Station in Buffalo. The production team shot on the grand concourse of the enormous art deco structure, as well as on the tower’s top floor, which entailed hauling equipment up seventeen flights of stairs. Melantha Blackthorne is featured with special make-up effects by Lavin, David Grey, and Sean Flahive.

BNP’s most ambitious production films this spring: Frankenstein’s Patchwork Monster, an amalgam of Mary Shelley’s original novel, James Whale’s Bride of Frankenstein, and Hammer’s classic series. The script details the many failed experiments and creations of Dr. Frankenstein (played Michael O’Hear, who appeared in House of Horrors: the Movie and Slime City Massacre) during his obsessive quest for the secrets of life. Blackthorne, John Renna (SCM), and Daniel James portray the creatures with special make-up effects designed by Szymecki and Durick.

Novak writes, directs, shoots, and produces his films, sometimes in collaboration with others. “As an independent filmmaker, I strive for a balance between visual and scripted storytelling. Too many filmmakers today are content to emphasize one over the other, and the results are sometimes uneven. At Buffalo Nickel Productions we want to make movies as good as they used to be.”

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost Are Truth Seekers Playing by Slaughterhouse Rulez

Published

on

One of our favorite pairings of stars from the last twenty years is no doubt that of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Their chemistry is undeniable, and if you didn’t get enough of it in “Spaced,” Shawn of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World’s End, and Paul, you’re about to get a bellyful of it on both big and small screens.

Variety is reporting that Frost and Pegg will be starring in “Truth Seekers,” a half-hour comedy-horror TV show about a three-person paranormal investigation team.

According to the site, each installment of “Truth Seekers” will focus on a paranormal incident, a setup with clear monster-of-the-week potential. “Each episode is going to be an adventure, a potential haunting or something,” Pegg says. “It’ll start as a very parochial idea, a very small business venture for these people, but it will expand as the series goes on to be something far more global. It’s a language everyone understands, the mystery of the unknown. Shaun of the Dead was a very parochial story set in North London, and somehow it managed to get this global reach because everyone understands the language of zombie movies.

That’s not all, though… the pair are also working on the feature film Slaughterhouse Rulez, a horror-comedy now in post-production. Directed by Crispian Mills and set in a well-to-do public school, the movie is “very satirical, very much about the U.K. selling itself off,” Pegg says. “It’s about fracking as well, and that unleashes some awful subterranean demon.

Both of these projects will be released under their Stolen Picture shingle. Stay tuned, kids! More as we get it!

Andrew and Sara are happily married and plan on spending some quality time together, but something sinister has other plans for their evening.
