Stripped Ready to Start Shooting! New Casting News!



Post Thumb:


After a couple of years of talking about John Wildman’s horror flick Stripped, things are finally moving, and the flick is ready to go before cameras with some new additions to the cast. Read on for details. Dig it!

From the Press Release
On the eve of principal photography for the film STRIPPED, Wildworks Productions, director/producer John Wildman, and producers Farah White, Adam Dietrich and Justina Walford announced key changes in the cast, with Melodie Sisk, Gabriel Horn and R.J. Hanson joining the horror thriller. Filming is set to begin in Dallas, Texas on Friday, June 8. Sisk has been cast to play the leader of a “family” of malevolent women that threaten the lives of a trio of young men on a birthday outing, with Horn and Sanford set to play two brothers that are part of that trio. Sisk and Horn replace the previously announced Tiffany Shepis and Michael Guarnera.

Wildman said, “We couldn’t be more excited by these additions to the film. Melodie and Gabriel are both accomplished indie producers as well as actors with a proven talent for challenging themselves and audiences with their past projects. All three actors impressed us greatly and will round out the STRIPPED cast wonderfully.”

Wildworks Productions also announced that STRIPPED will film at the premiere boutique film studio Agora Entertainment, located in Las Colinas, Texas as well as utilizing several of that studio’s crew of filmmakers in key production roles on the film. The 32,000 square foot facility will be home to 95% of the production boasting an exact replica of Wildman’s and Walford’s actual Dallas home.

Regarding the impact filming at Agora will have on STRIPPED, White said, “It is remarkable and rare for a truly independent film to have the infrastructure of a studio like Agora as part of their production. It will give John creative diversity and unparalleled capabilities by enabling shots and sequences that couldn’t be done in a non-studio setting. We are very lucky to have access to Agora and full run of their facility.”

Melodie Sisk is an actor/producer based out of Brooklyn NY. Sisk made her feature film debut starring in Zach Clark’s feature MODERN LOVE IS AUTOMATIC (2009) which went on to screen at many film festivals including SXSW and the Edinburgh International Film Festival. She followed by Co-Producing and starring in Clark’s second feature VACATION (2011), as well as Co-Producing his upcoming feature WHITE REINDEER, set for a 2013 release. Upcoming projects include Drew Tobias’ upcoming feature SEE YOU NEXT TUESDAY.

Gabriel Horn most recently starred in Tom Huckabee’s award winning film festival favorite, CARRIED AWAY in 2010, which he also produced along with his wife and New Palace Films producing partner, Jennifer Floyd. Upcoming projects include the comedy scripted/reality hybrid television series, Ghostbreakers, which will debut this Fall 2012 on the Mark Burnett partnered cable network, YouToo Social TV. Additional credits include credits include NIGHT CRAWLERS (2009), THE CONSULTANTS (2009), and LITTLE WHITE BOY (2002).

Synapse’s Suspiria 4K Restoration Gets a Release Date



Earlier this year, we wrote about Synapse Films’ Suspiria 4K restoration and how it was available for pre-order. The weird catch was that there was no release date confirmed and that pre-orders would go out sometime in December 2017. Today that changes as we can confirm that the 3-disc special edition Blu-ray collection will come out December 19th, just in time for Christmas but a little late for Hanukkah. Any chance we can have one extra night this year?

Restored over three years, Synapse has been working tirelessly to create the ultimate version of Dario Argento’s 1977 classic supernatural horror film, which has since gone on to become one of the most recognized and lauded titles in the genre. This cut has been overseen and approved by Luciano Tovoli, the Director of Photography on the film.

Pre-orders are still available via Synapse Films’ website.

*Limited edition of only 6000 units produced

Desiree Akhavan (“Girls”, APPROPRIATE BEHAVIOR) stars as Sara, a video artist whose primary focus is creating intimacy with lonely men. After finding an ad online for “video work,” she thinks she may have found the subject of her dreams. She drives to a remote house in the forest and meets a man claiming to be a serial killer (Mark Duplass, reprising his role from the previous film). Unable to resist the chance to create a truly shocking piece of art, she agrees to spend the day with him.
