Lynn Lowry Joins the Cast of DefTone Pictures Studios' OmbisA bit of casting news has come in for DefTone Pictures Studios’ upcoming feature film Ombis along with our first good look at the “Mutant”. In addition, just for fun, we have a photo of the legendary Lloyd Kaufman meeting up with the Ombis gang.

From the Press Release:
Cult actress Lynn Lowry (pictured right) has signed on for a cameo in the upcoming feature film Ombis. Ms. Lowry has appeared in such films as Paul Schrader’s Cat People (1982) and George A. Romero’s The Crazies (1973). Lynn will be playing a vital role in the conclusion of the sci-fi/horror flick.

Ombis director Adam R. Steigert had this to say: “I am very excited to have Lynn signing on to our production. The role we have her in is key to the ending of the film. With the production in its final weeks of principal photography, I’m thrilled to see how well the film is coming together. Some of what we were able to accomplish in Ombis is not normally seen in local independent films. Bringing Lynn to the film is just the icing on the cake!”

B-movie director/actor Lloyd Kaufman recently met up with the cast and crew of Ombis at the first annual Beyond Ghost ParaHorror Weekend, which took place at Buffalo’s historic Central Terminal on May 26th, 2012. The Central Terminal has been featured on Syfy Channel’s “Ghost Hunters” and was a perfect setting for the convention. Lloyd visited DefTone’s table and met the caged Ombis Mutant. Kaufman showed off a mask of his beloved character Toxie from the Toxic Avenger series while chatting with the cast and crew about his amazing career.

DefTone plans to release the first official trailer of Ombis at the end of July 2012.

Synopsis:
Ombis is a 1950’s styled sci-fi movie set in modern times. It’s the tale of an invasion of an alien virus which lands via meteorite in the small town of Metzburgh. Metzburgh is a former industrial town whose glory days are long past but whose residents are carrying on with their daily lives: loving each other and living life as best they can. In the midst of this idealistic backdrop, enter the hideous virus Ombis, which is intent on taking over the planet Earth and changing its residents into a host for a new species.

The only thing that can stop Ombis is Nemesis, an alien from the same home planet as the virus who was sent here to contain the alien scourge. The Nemesis’ disregard for the human race puts him in a position to ensure that the Ombis virus will be eradicated since he doesn’t care about collateral damage and will use any means necessary to destroy his enemy. The real story of Ombis, however, is the human struggle of the residents of Metzburgh: to fight for their village and for their very survival.

Ombis is based on a short story by Steigert and was written by him, Janeen Avery, Mark Mendola, and Terry Kimmel. The cast features Richard Satterwhite (Sheriff Thomas Brackett), Sara Manzella (Lucy), Jason John Beebe (Mark), Melyssa Jade (Savannah), Alexander Sloan McBryde (Mr. Gray), and Richard Winiatowski (Nemesis).

Hunt a Serial Killer Through Chicago In My Eyes On You

Published

on

Developer Storymind Entertainment have released the first gameplay trailer for My Eyes On You, and it looks like we’re in for something completely truly unique, in terms of both visuals and narrative.

My Eyes On You takes place in a near future version of Chicago, with FBI agent Jordan Adalien hunting an elusive serial killer known only as the Man in the Red Mask. The decisions you make will also dictate whether the game’s plot stays closer to reality or heads in a supernatural direction, so you’d better be careful what you wish for. Whilst searching for clues will be one of your main areas of focus, combat will also play an important role, too.

The trailer for My Eyes On You certainly gives off a strong Blade Runner 2049 vibe, so if that’s your thing, you’re probably in for a great time. It will be available on PC and consoles, although a release date has not yet been confirmed.

Published

on

I’m going to let you guys into a bit of my life here and let you know that I am basically in a constant state of kicking myself for not having found the time to watch a single episode of Netflix’s “The Punisher” solo series.

I love the f*cking Punisher and I think Jon Bernthal’s portrayal of Frank Castle is quite possibly the best version (love ya, Tom Jane) of the character we have ever seen on screen.

Big or small.

It’s with this in mind that we wanted to share the awesome news the Netflix has officially given “The Punisher” the greenlight for season 2!

Yes, Frank Castle will be back to shoot more people in the back of the face sooner than later. The announcement was made recently on Facebook and you can check out the post below.

After that make sure to hit us up and let us know what you thought of the first season of Netflix’s “The Punisher” solo series in the comments below or on social media!

“The Punisher” is executive produced by showrunner Steve Lightfoot, Jim Chory, and Jeph Loeb. The series is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.

The cast features Jon Bernthal, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Deborah Ann Woll, Ben Barnes, Amber Rose Revah, Michael Nathanson, Jaime Ray Newman, Jason R Moore, and Paul Schulze.

After exacting revenge on those responsible for the death of his wife and children, Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) uncovers a conspiracy that runs far deeper than New York’s criminal underworld. Now known throughout the city as The Punisher, he must discover the truth about injustices that affect more than his family alone.
