Independent Canadian film studio Foresight Features has teamed up with celebrated author Tony Burgess in a deal that includes three exciting new genre projects, and we have the skinny on a couple right here including Ejecta!

From the Press Release
Following on the heels of its award-winning 2011 films Monster Brawl and Exit Humanity, independent Canadian film studio Foresight Features has teamed up with celebrated author Tony Burgess in a deal that includes three exciting genre projects produced in 2012 and set to premiere and release worldwide in 2013.

The first film in this all-Canuck collaboration is the gripping sci-fi chiller EJECTA, directed by Foresight filmmaker Matt Wiele from a script by Burgess, which wrapped production in mid-May 2012. The company is also teaming up with Burgess for a Gothic horror throwback directed by John Geddes (Exit Humanity) set for production in July and a survival horror nightmare directed by Jesse Thomas Cook (Monster Brawl) that goes to camera in September. Foresight owners Cook, Geddes and Wiele will executive produce the three-film slate with fellow filmmakers Cody Calahan and Chad Archibald (Neverlost) on board as producers.

Tony Burgess is the author of Pontypool Changes Everything, which he adapted into a script for Bruce McDonald’s cult masterpiece Pontypool in 2008. He has been developing Pontypool II with McDonald, which was recently selected as one of Fantasia International Film Festival’s Frontieres Co-Production Market projects. Last year he released the book People Live Still at Cashtown Corners, published by Chizine. And his latest book, Idaho Winter, was nominated for the Trillium award, Ontario’s most prestigious writing accolade.

“Tony lives in the next town over and we’ve all been friends for years so it was inevitable that we’d finally be working together on something. We’re all very excited to be collaborating with the madman genius of Tony Burgess. He is quite possibly the leading horror author writing in Canada today and certainly the most bizarre. We hope to harness his morbid energy and capture his sharp-tongued wit in three unique cinematic visions.”
-Jesse Thomas Cook
Foresight Director/Producer

“The Foresight crew are smart and restless professionals who wanna do some damage. I’m just along for the wild ride.”
-Tony Burgess
Author/Screenwriter

The first of these films is EJECTA, starring Julian Richings, from such cult classics as Cube and Hard Core Logo, alongside newcomer Adam Seybold, who delivered a standout performance in Exit Humanity, and marks the directorial debut of Foresight producer Matt Wiele.

EJECTA is the terrifying story of two men whose lives cross paths on a fateful night during a solar storm. A terrifying presence besieges the men on a remote farm, triggering an intense struggle to survive the night. During the attack the men discover a truth that will change the way we look at the universe.

Chiller Channel Will Be Discontinued This January

Published

on

Back in March of 2007, the Chiller horror channel was launched. The channel was filled with wall-to-wall horror movies and TV shows.

The channel even tried their hand at original scripted content recently with the series “Slasher, starring Kaite McGrath. The second season just premiered on Netflix.

But it seems like today we have bad news. The end of an era. NBC has decided to shut down the Chiller Channel effective beginning on January 1, 2018.

This news comes to us via the TV Answer Man, with an NBC spokesperson telling the site, “NBC Universal will discontinue Chiller as of January 1, 2018.”

The spokesperson didn’t give any further details on the decision but many believe it has everything to do with Verizon, Charter, and Dish dropping the channel earlier this year.

While those drops weren’t catastrophic, the final nail in the coffin came recently when Cox dropped the channel, effectively pulling it out of around 40 million homes.

Are you sad to see the Chiller channel canceled? How often did you watch content via Chiller? Make sure to hit us up and let us know in the comments below.

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.
