Medallion Press Unveils The Julian Year by Gregory LambersonBack in June of last year we chatted with author Gregory Lamberson, who told us about his forthcoming novel The Julian Year from Medallion Press, and today we have a look at the book’s artwork and news of its release schedule.

From the Press Release:
Medallion Press, a division of Medallion Media Group, has released the cover for The Julian Year by Gregory Lamberson. The novel is the first TREEbook (Timed Reading Experience E-book), a unique e-book platform for the iPad and Android phones which employs time triggers and branching technology to provide numerous alternate versions of a story. Readers can download the MMG Sidekick e-reader for free from iTunes now, ahead of the novel’s December release, and can purchase titles from Medallion’s library through the app. TREEbooks can only be read through the MMG Sidekick.

The Julian Year is a horror/science fiction thriller that depicts what happens when every person on earth becomes possessed on his birthday, with the doomsday clock counting down the extinction of mankind in one year’s time. The lead characters are Julian Weizak, an obituary writer who becomes a leading columnist, and Rachel Konigsberg, a police woman born on Leap Day.

The MMG Sidekick measures the average reading pace of each individual reader, then causes the story to branch off in wildly different directions when the reader’s reading pace changes. Readers will be unaware that the storyline has changed until they reach the end of the book, when they are free to jump around the alternate versions of events or simply start over, which will inevitably lead to a new reading experience.

“This remarkable new technology has enabled me to tell a story in a new way,” says Lamberson, author of the occult detective series The Jake Helman Files and the werewolf series The Frenzy Cycle. “This book is the first of its kind, and I’m honored Medallion selected me to be the first author to use it. A character can live in one branch, die in another, or become possessed in another. I’ve never been able to explore characters this fully before because the technology dictates that I place them in different situations with different outcomes.”

Medallion and Lamberson will preview The Julian Year at C2E2 in Chicago, which runs April 26th-28th. The publisher will be giving away preview books that include sample chapters from The Julian Year, which will be published in December, and Storm Demon, Book Five in The Jake Helman Files, coming in October. Lamberson will sign copies of the preview book.

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!

DIS Review – Not for the Faint of Heart!

Published

on

Starring Bill Oberst, Jr., Lori Jo Hendrix, Peter Gonzales Falcon

Directed by Adrian Corona


I’ve made this claim many a time on this website before, and in the company of film friends as well: Bill Oberst Jr. is one of those actors that can literally be thrust into ANY role, and deliver a performance with so much harnessed electricity that you couldn’t believe that it was possible. I was the lucky recipient chosen to get a look at his latest project, titled DIS, and I think that I can honestly say – this is the stuff that nightmares are constructed of.

Directed by Adrian Corona, this 60-minute dive into the black depths of hell, and in actuality DIS is located between circles # 6 and 9 in Dante’s Divine Comedy, and trust me when I tell you – there’s not a shred of comedic relief in this demented presentation. Oberst Jr plays an ex-soldier named Ariel, and his seemingly harmless jaunt through the woods will become anything but that, and judging from the film’s opening scenes, you are meant to feel as uncomfortable about this watch as any you might have checked out in recent memory.

Perversion is the norm here, and lord help you if you’re caught where you shouldn’t be…my skin’s crawling just thinking about what I saw. Ariel’s travels are basically dialogue-free, but it only adds to the infinite levels of creepiness – you can tell he’s being stalked, and the distance between he and the horrors that await are closing in rather quickly.

Visually by itself, this hour-long chiller can sell tickets without any assistance – hollowed-out buildings and long sweeping shots of a silent forest give the movie that look of complete desolation. Sliced up into three acts, the film wastes no time in setting up the story of a killer needing fresh blood to appease his Mandrake garden – seriously guys, I can’t type as much flashy stuff as there needs to be in order to describe this innately disturbing production.

If you’re one of those types who tends to shy away from the graphic side of things, then I’d HIGHLY advise you to keep your TV tuned to the Hallmark Channel for some holiday entertainment, because this one registers high on the “I can’t believe someone thought of this” meter. So the quick recap is this: Oberst Jr in a standout performance, visual excellence, and an unshakable sense of debasement on a cellular level – keep the kiddies out of the living room with this one. Corona should be lauded (or locked up – just kidding) for his work on this one – HIGHLY recommended, and one that I’ll throw down as a top 5 for me in 2017.

Summary

Director Corona should be lauded (or locked up – just kidding) for his work on this one – HIGHLY recommended!
