Fading of the Cries Unveils Its New One-Sheet





Its release date and trailer have been revealed over the past month or so, and now Brian Metcalf's Fading of the Cries has provided us with its new official one-sheet. Look for the flick on June 24th in Los Angeles and July 8th in New York.

Fading of the Cries stars Brad Dourif, Thomas Ian Nicholas, Mackenzie Rosman, Hallee Hirsch, Julia Whelan, Jessica Morris, Lateef Crowder, Elaine Hendrix, and Jordan Matthews. It was written and directed by Brian A. Metcalf (making his debut) with Karoline Kautz, Thomas Ian Nicholas, and Metcalf serving as producers.

For an indie film Fading of the Cries is epic in scope with more than 1,100 special effects, an astronomical number for such a film. There is every type of visual effect in this film — digital doubles, keying, crowd-simulation scenes, CG blood, compositing, digital environments, matte paintings, and more.

Synopsis
Evil is resurrected in a small town threatening to destroy mankind, and the only force that can stop it is a young man wielding a powerful sword.

Jacob (Jordan Matthews), a young man armed with a deadly sword, saves Sarah (Hallee Hirsh), a teenage girl, from Mathias (Brad Dourif), a malevolent evil that has begun plaguing a small farmland town while in search of an ancient necklace that had belonged to Sarah's uncle (Thomas Ian Nicholas).

Jacob sets out to get Sarah home safely, running through streets, fields, churches, and underground tunnels while being pursued by hordes of demonic creatures. Along the way both come to terms with the demons within themselves - Sarah begins to understand her hatred towards her mother (Elaine Hendrix) and sister (Mackenzie Rosman) may be unjustified, and Jacob discovers the secrets of his past, realizing the only way to truly defeat the demons is to return to the very place his family was murdered.

NEXT STORY

Arguably one of the best one sheets I have ever seen in my life, and I am a harsh critic of key art. This destroys the one sheet for John Carpenter's The Ward, which I happen to be a fan of.

Carpenter has been absent from the scene for over 10 years. I'm glad he's back, but these are clearly two different scopes of movies. Carpenter is all about shock horror. On the other hand, I saw a teaser trailer at Fango Con for Fading Of The Cries over two years ago. The article says this has over 1,100 special effects shots and the movie must have just gotten done with post-production. It looks like a much higher level caliber movie. Not to mention, The Ward is being released on VOD before it's theatrical release, not a great sign for Carpenter, but not a surprise either.

Carpenter was never about shock, he was about telling a good story with interesting characters in an intelligent, entertaining properly paced way.

As for VOD, that just means the studios don't like the commercial potential of a project. I find commercial potential a piss poor measurement of quality. i.e. Centurion went to VOD and was 10 times the movie Scott's Robin Hood was despite it's huge budget and wide release.
