Blanc/Biehn Productions Set to Begin Production on Fetish FactoryAlrighty, kids! We’re very proud to announce that our very own Staci Layne Wilson’s latest film, Fetish Factory, is officially in production! Read on for casting along with all the details you need!

From the Press Release
Blanc/Biehn Productions, along with Lony Ruhmann as executive producer, will be going into production on Fetish Factory, written and directed by Staci Layne Wilson.

Imagine a wickedly saucy by invitation-only stage show and posh private peeps in which your every fantasy can come true, fulfilled by the likes of luscious ladies imitating the sex goddesses of yore: Bettie Page, Jayne Mansfield, and Suzie Wong. Along with classic burlesque strip-teases and curio acts – a ventriloquist, a magician, and a whip-dancer – you are in for the night of your life at the Fetish Factory. That is, until your life is at stake when the apocalypse strikes! Once mild-mannered men become bloodthirsty zombies, and it’s up to the girls to defend themselves by any means – even if that means turning their bullet bras, garter belts, and spike-heels into deadly weapons.

Wilson is an award-winning filmmaker for her shorts and music videos. Fetish Factory marks her feature debut. “The story centers on pin-up vixens vs. bloodthirsty zombies and is set in post-apocalyptic Hollywood,” she said, “which is perfect for me, since my mom was a celebrated ‘nudie cutie’ model in the 1960s, I was born and raised in L.A., and I’m a lifelong horror movie fan.”

While the film is still in the final casting stages, Chase Williamson (pictured above; John Dies at the End) is set for the male lead. “Love the script, this movie’s going to be a total blast!” said Williamson. Also starring Jennifer Blanc-Biehn (The Victim, Wrong Cops, She Rises, Everly), Diane Ayala Goldner (The Collector), Emma Julia Jacobs (Hitchcock), Jesse Merlin (Re-Animator: The Musical), Ruben Pla (Big Ass Spider), and Morgan Peter Brown (Absentia). Montreal-based alternative model and fetish superstar The Richard and gorgeous go-go icon Jenimay Walker round out the cast. (More announcements coming soon!)

Producer/actress Jennifer Blanc-Biehn has known Wilson for years, but this is their first collaboration. “I am so excited to finally be working so closely with Staci. This is something we have been trying to make happen for quite some time now.”

Executive producer Ruhmann, who came up with the idea for the story and tapped Wilson to flesh it out (so to speak) with an original screenplay, said, “When I was a kid, these grainy, cleavage obsessed pin-up photos used to put me in another world. I want to see these mysterious, unattainable, naughty women of my adolescence come to life. I anticipate our film’s vibe being fun, humorous, ironic, visually pleasing, and lusty in a happy way.”

“After I read the script, I just couldn’t stop smiling. There is so much love created here in Fetish Factory for all… That is the best of beauty and horror,” said The Richard, who will be working with Wilson for the first time.

Goldner, on the other hand, is a veteran, having appeared in most of the director’s short films. “Having worked with Staci several times, I consider her a master of imagery. Her script integrates her favorite things: pin-ups and monsters. My character is bawdy, sexy and in charge – I can sink my teeth into that!”

Jesse Merlin, who plays a makeup-mad character dubbed Lipstick, said, “Super-thrilled and delighted to fight zombies as a suave, gentlemanly pervert. Facing down a ravenous horde in immaculate ladies’ makeup marks a new personal high in badassery. Having been decapitated as Dr. Hill in Re-Animator: The Musical 170 times, I’ve always been on the other side of the zombie barricade. Until now.”

Pla, who plays a character called Whipping Boy, added, “I am so looking forward to being whipped into shape.”

Cinematographer Steve Romano, whose credits include Blanc/Biehn Productions’ She Rises, The Night Visitor, and Altered Perception, has also shot sexy music videos for Beyonce (“Rocket”), Vassy (“Beautiful”), and many more. “Steve appreciates female beauty, and his work shows that in every frame. I can’t wait to work with him on bringing our lovely ladies to life… and our zombies to their grisly deaths,” said Wilson.

Mars Homeworld will be doing the original score. “As a musician who often feels completely uninterested with whatever the cinema music d’jour is,” he said, “I am truly excited by this opportunity to delve into those retro-racy, superphonic, swinging musical influences of yesteryear to bring the Fetish Factory score alive. A little old, a little new; I get to pull out the vintage gear and pretend I’m Les Baxter as re-sampled by Trent Reznor. Too cool.”

Fetish Factory is a thrilling and sensual horror suspense film with a heaping helping of vintage burlesque bawdiness. Production begins in May 2014.

Published

on

Strange Disc Records has just announced that it will be releasing “Freddy’s Greatest Hits – The Elm Street Group” on vinyl starting this Wednesday with pre-orders expected to ship in January 2018.

Not only that but Mondo announced they will be releasing an exclusive variant pressed on “Freddy Sweater” striped vinyl. This LP from Mondo is limited to 400 and will cost you $25.

I don’t know about you but this has just made my list of must-own items. But I’d prefer an original copy. That said an original copy is probably hundreds of buck on eBay as opposed to this version for a mere $25 bucks. Not bad.

That is One Gigantic Steampunk Squid…

Published

on

Perhaps one of the greatest sci-fi adventures novels ever written, Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea was a landmark book, one that was decades ahead of its time. The story follows the crew of the Nautilus, a submarine commanded by Captain Nemo, as they venture in search of a giant sea monster. It was the basis for several film adaptations and the character of Captain Nemo played a pivotal role in the graphic novel series The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

So why am I bringing this up, you ask? Because Tor Books is releasing Nemo Rising, a sequel, this Christmas! Written by C. Courtney Joyner, the story once again follows Nemo, although this book sees him a prisoner that must be pardoned by President Ulysses S. Grant in order to face an onslaught of more sea monsters.

Normally, I wouldn’t bother you all with this, but I happen to have a soft spot in my heart for 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and the cover art for the book is fucking epic! I’ve always been a fan of cephalopods, and I’ve found the steampunk aesthetic to be pretty fascinating. Combine them both along with giant monsters, and you damn well better believe that I’m 100% into it! Plus, it’s wrapped itself around the Nautilus, which is already a giant vessel, so now I’m wondering just how large these mechanical monstrosities are…

Nemo Rising will be released on hardcover from Tor Books on December 26, 2017.

Synopsis:
Sea monsters are sinking ships up and down the Atlantic Coast. Enraged that his Navy is helpless against this onslaught and facing a possible World War as a result, President Ulysses S. Grant is forced to ask for assistance from the notorious Captain Nemo, in Federal prison for war crimes and scheduled for execution.

Grant returns Nemo’s submarine, the infamous Victorian Steampunk marvel Nautilus, and promises a full Presidential pardon if Nemo hunts down and destroys the source of the attacks. Accompanied by the beautiful niece of Grant’s chief advisor, Nemo sets off under the sea in search of answers. Unfortunately, the enemy may be closer than they realize…
