New Clip from The Ghastly Love of Johnny X Features Paul WilliamsPaul Williams has written some of the most beloved songs of his generation, but he’s also a prolific actor, including a recent stint in The Ghastly Love of Johnny X, and here’s a new clip featuring him as “Cousin Quilty”.

The film is directed by Paul Bunnell; written by Steve Bingen, Paul Bunnell, Mark D. Murphy, and George Wagner; and produced by Paul Bunnell, John Duffy, Ezra Kemp, Kristina West, Mark Willoughby, Ramzi Abed, and Joe Rios.

Synopsis:
THE GHASTLY LOVE OF JOHNNY X is a truly mad concoction – a mesmerizing big screen spectacular! JOHNNY X and his rebellious gang of juvenile delinquents from outer space (called the Ghastly Ones) have been banished to planet Earth until they can pay for their crimes. The Ghastly Ones are in hot pursuit of a mysterious femme fatale named BLISS, who has stolen their most prized possession—a strange suit with magical powers known as the “resurrection suit.” When Johnny X wears this suit, he can control anyone against their will.

To capture Bliss, Johnny must form an unlikely alliance with a shifty show promoter, KING CLAYTON, who desperately needs the resurrection suit for his own selfish scheme—to ensure that the legendary rock star MICKEY O’FLYNN successfully completes a comeback concert. Johnny’s plight is further complicated when the unpredictable rocker suddenly drops dead, forcing him to use the suit for a far darker purpose—to bring the late, great Mickey O’Flynn back from the grave for a spectacular concert of the macabre!

With highly stylized musical numbers, tons of genuinely humorous dialogue, and wacky plot twists, JOHNNY X is the only sci-fi dark comedy musical romance you need to see this year! Beautifully photographed on the last of Kodak’s 35mm black and white Plus X film stock, the cast includes sexy new stars Will Keenan and De Anna Joy Brooks as well as seasoned professionals Creed Bratton (“The Office”), Reggie Bannister (Phantasm), Kate Maberly (The Secret Garden), Paul Williams (Phantom of the Paradise), and the late Kevin McCarthy (Invasion of the Body Snatchers) in his final role.

Exclusive: Uncrossing Rock Out in Get It From Me

Published

on

Alright rockers, we’ve got something just for you here! Today, we’re happy to premiere “Get It From Me” from new rock group Uncrossing, which features ex-Activator guitarist Jared Drace! The track comes from the band’s upcoming self-titled EP and it’s a moderately paced, sludgy, doomy track that features strong female vocals. If you’re in the mood for something to get you through the rest of today until the weekend hits, head on down and hit ‘Play’!

Drace tells Dread Central, “Musically, this was a fun one to come up with just because it’s a total mish-mashing of influences, well of MY influences at least. I mean there’s a solid Type O Negative-style chug for the verse and an outro riff that has a kind of Tool-vibe to it, and that’s not even mentioning the melodic beer commercial-like solo in the middle which is definitely a side-effect of listening to too much In Flames & Arch Enemy in my youth! But assembled together and with everyone putting their own stamp on it, we get something that ends up sounding like an Uncrossing song.

Uncrossing’s self-titled 3-track EP will be available for streaming and free download on February 9. You can follow the band on Facebook or Instagram.

If you want to check out the band, you can see them on February 10 at Lucky 13 in Brooklyn, NY.

Exclusive: Venture Into Black Mirror’s Black Museum With Cristobal Tapia de Veer’s “We Got a Miracle”

Published

on

One of the most anticipated shows to premiere last year (really late last year) was Netflix’s fourth season of Charlie Brooker’s “Black Mirror”. The show has amassed a dedicated following who voraciously devour each new morsel whenever the opportunity presents itself. For those who are eager for a new and different taste, we’ve got something rather special for you today!

Below is an exclusive stream of “We Got a Miracle”, a composition by Cristobal Tapia de Veer (The Girl With All the Gifts) for the “Black Museum” episode. Dark, brooding, and hypnotic, the muted opening enters a tribalistic rhythm with a muted piano piercing the pulsations with staccato stabs. Ghostly vocals hover later on, specters that appear briefly before fading quickly into the darkness. The track builds upon the tribal drums and enters the realm of dissonance without becoming offensive to the ears, culminating in a moment of near ritualistic worship.

The beginning, discovering the Black Museum, that was going to set the tone for the rest of the show,” explained Tapia de Veer. “The music morphed in many ways throughout the 3 stories, then goes back to where it started with the Black Museum, although with a sense of accomplishment, but also a sense of doom.

Black Museum is available as a digital download through Lakeshore Records’ Bandcamp.
