Rhode Island-based Scorpio Film Releasing has wrapped production on its 12th feature film, Murder University, and sent over a few new stills from the flick, which is an homage to the slasher films of the 80’s slated to premiere in late July of 2012.

SFR promises that Murder University is the company’s most violent and gory film to date. It stars Jamie Dufault, Michael Thurber, and Samantha Acampora.

Director Richard Griffin says, “Murder University is nothing but pure entertainment. Extreme graphic violence, action, sex, nudity, comedy, a musical number… hell, anything and everything we could throw at the audience, we did! The performances are top-notch, and the movie has a scope that most low budget films could only dream of. It’s a great testament to my amazingly hardworking crew and my tireless producers Ted Marr and Kristin Kayala.

Acclaimed playwright turned screenwriter Lenny Schwartz adds, “It’s been an honor and a privilege to work with this cast, crew, producers, and director on the film. It certainly is the bloodiest thing I have ever written, and it is filled with things I have never done in the theater: blood, sex, extreme violence, and nudity. And that positively fills me with glee.

Actor Jamie Dufault says, “I’ve spent nearly every weekend for the past two and a half months engaging in general debauchery with this wonderful cast and crew, and I’ve loved every second of it. It’s an experience I won’t soon forget.

Actress Samantha Acampora explains, “Murder University was an amazing experience for me. We started filming soon after I returned from a year living in LA, and it was great having this to come home to. I love Lenny’s writing, and the crew was so professional and fun to work with. I was really sad to wrap… Richard is a wonderful director, and I got to work with such talented actors like Jamie Dufault and Michael Thurber. I can’t wait to see how the whole thing turns out!

Murder University also stars Sean Sullivan, Rich Tretheway, Nat Sylva, Lee Rush, Nick Apostolides, Christopher Ferreira, Kevin Killavey, and Daniel Lee White.

Synopsis:
A series of brutal, cult-like murders are taking place at a New England college. Josh Greene, a shy freshman, is the lone survivor of the murders, which are reminiscent of a similar string of killings some twenty years prior. As he seeks to uncover the secret behind the attacks, he is joined by Detective Forrester, who was instrumental in halting the bloodshed before, and his daughter, Meg, who had barely escaped being a victim previously.

Stay tuned for more info on screenings and the upcoming trailer for the film. In the meantime visit the Murder University Facebook page.

Another WolfCop Gets Another Poster via The Dude Designs

Published

on

It was only last week that we shared the bloody new trailer for writer-director Lowell Dean’s upcoming sequel to his hit horror-comedy flick WolfCop.

Today we have another poster for Another WolfCop.

This new poster comes to us from one of my current favorite poster artists, Tom “The Dude” Hodge. If you’re unfamiliar with the name, you surely know his work. To refamiliarize yourself, you can check out more of his posters right here.

Below you will find his new poster for Another WolfCop, along with the flick’s newest trailer. After that make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments!

The film is written and directed by Lowell Dean, produced by Bernie Hernando, Deborah Marks, and Hugh Patterson, and distributed worldwide by Cineplex.

Another WolfCop co-stars Amy Matysio, Jonathan Cherry, and Serena Miller. The film also features special appearances from Canadian music icon Gowan and legendary filmmaker Kevin Smith. It was executive produced by Sean Buckley, J. Joly, Bill Marks, Brian Wideen, Michael Kennedy, and Michael Hirsch.

The film is slated for a wide Cineplex theatrical release on Friday, December 8, 2017, with the film seeing a Blu-ray/DVD/Digital home entertainment release through A71 and Black Fawn in 2018.

Synopsis:
A month has passed since the eclipse transformed hard-drinking Officer Lou Garou into the crime-fighting hellion WolfCop. Although the Shape Shifters controlling the town have been extinguished, Woodhaven is far from returning to normal. Lou’s liquor-fueled antics and full moon outbursts are seriously testing his relationship with Officer Tina Walsh – the new Chief of Police. An old friend has mysteriously reappeared with a truly bizarre secret to share, and a homicidal new villain has emerged from the shadows looking to finish what the Shape Shifters started. To defeat this lethal adversary, it will take more than a lone wolf packing a pistol.

Prepare for the next chapter of WolfCop that will be more dirty and hairy than the original! Consider yourself warned.

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!
