BJ McDonnell and Tyler Mane Set to Take You Down Penance LaneWhile we still wait for Mane Entertainment’s first flick, Compound Fracture, to get a wide release, news of the production company’s second film has already come across our desk. Dig in for details!

From the Press Release
Mane and Mane Entertainment today announced that horror flick PENANCE LANE will be the production company’s second original feature film project. Filming is set to begin in the first quarter of 2014.

Horror veteran B.J. McDonnell (HATCHET III) will direct the script written by Munier Sharrieff (BATTLE CHASERS, BATTLE OF THE PLANETS). Mane (HALLOWEEN, XMEN, TROY), Renae Geerlings (HALLOWEEN II, COMPOUND FRACTURE) and Justin Beahm (Fangoria) will produce. Casting for the film is currently under way.

PENANCE LANE is an action-packed horror film that tells the harrowing story of Crimson Matthews, a hardened criminal fresh out of the joint who takes a job as a handyman in a dilapidated house; but the twisted horrors he finds inside are enough to send anyone running. So why does he stay? And what is it about the house on Penance Lane that lures so many in? Set in a former factory town in decline, the film explores both second chances and what people will resort to when they are truly desperate.

“We’ve had this incredible script for a while, but we were waiting for just the right moment and combination of talent to bring it from script to screen,” says Mane. “I’m ecstatic that the stars have finally aligned for me to bring together some of my favorite people in the horror industry to make this film. When B.J. signed on, I knew the time was right.”

B.J. McDonnell, who previously worked with Mane on HALLOWEEN and THE DEVIL’S REJECTS, says, “I was excited to get the call to direct Tyler’s next feature. The team we’re putting together is top-notch and the vision is dark and gritty. PENANCE LANE is going to be a wild ride!”

Justin Beahm says, “Mane Entertainment unites cutting edge contemporary filmmaking with old school storytelling. PENANCE LANE blends the brutality fans love from Tyler with the great story of a man’s resurrection and struggle with a bizarre breed of evil. I am proud to be part of this project, and I can’t wait for audiences to see what we have in store for them on PENANCE LANE!”

Mane Entertainment’s first award-winning film, COMPOUND FRACTURE, was produced in 2012 and has just come off a limited theatrical grindhouse-style release in the U.S. to glowing reception by horror aficionados and fans alike. Mane and co-producer Geerlings personally attended every event to meet and greet ticketholders, do prize giveaways and run a Q&A after every show. A domestic distribution deal is pending.

Synapse’s Suspiria 4K Restoration Gets a Release Date

Published

on

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.

Special features:
*Limited edition of only 6000 units produced
*Exclusive Steelbook packaging and collector’s o-card sleeve, featuring artwork from Malleus, Van Orton Design, Juan José Saldarriaga & Chris MacGibbon
*Three disc [Two Blu-rays + One CD] limited collector’s edition (only 6000 units) containing a new 4K restoration of the original uncut, uncensored Italian 35mm camera negative exclusively done by Synapse Films, with color correction supervised and approved by SUSPIRIA Director of Photography, Luciano Tovoli
*Original 4.0 1977 English language LCRS sound mix not heard since the theatrical release in 1977, presented in high-resolution DTS-HD MA 96 Khz/24-bit audio
*Italian 5.1 surround sound mix
*Two audio commentaries by authors and Argento scholars, Derek Botelho, David Del Valle & Troy Howarth
*Do You Know Anything About Witches? – 30 minute SUSPIRIA visual essay written, edited and narrated by Michael Mackenzie
