Go In the Shadow with Nicole Elmer's Surrealistic New Horror FilmNext week Devolver Digital Films is releasing Nicole Elmer’s “arthouse” horror thriller In the Shadow on digital VOD, and we have all the info you need about this story of a filmmaker traveling in Puerto Rico who discovers the violent curse of a gifted healer, including a trailer and pre-order links!

The film was shot on a remote tropical island off the stunning coast of Puerto Rico as well as in Austin, Texas. In the Shadow was directed, co-written, and co-produced by Nicole Elmer; lead actor Jorge Sermini co-wrote and co-produced. Michelle Keffer and Danny Trejo co-star.

From the Press Release:
Blue Paper Film Works is proud to announce the digital VOD release of the disquieting and poetic new film In the Shadow through Devolver Digital Films.

In the Shadow, directed by Nicole Elmer, is a unique feature-length arthouse horror film that follows Diego, a healer who, exhausted from the demands of his “gift,” lives in isolation in Puerto Rico. His life is disrupted when a young woman arrives and discovers that Diego’s special abilities come with a violent curse, which changes their lives. Notorious cult badass Danny Trejo appears in the film as “The Hermit.”

“Diego’s story is much like that of Faust and the Devil… Faust, who wants what the stars did not foresee in his future, calls upon greater powers than his own to get what he wants,” explains director Elmer, “but then he has to pay the price, later, with his soul.”

The digital VOD (Video on Demand) release is scheduled for Tuesday, June 17, 2014, through Devolver. The film will be available through iTunes, Amazon, PlayStation, Xbox, VUDU, Distrify, Vimeo on Demand, VHX, Google Play, and others. The film is currently available on cable VOD (check your local listings) and on DVD through InTheShadowMovie.com.

Synopsis:
Exhausted from the demands of his abilities as a healer, Diego (Jorge Sermini) lives in isolation on a small island in his native Puerto Rico. His quiet life is disrupted when Hilary (Michelle Keffer), a documentary filmmaker, arrives to work on a project. Intrigued by Diego’s mystery and the local gossip about him, she tries to get closer to him. He allows her into his life, but as the two become attracted to each other, Hilary discovers that Diego’s “gift” comes with a curse, an uncontrollably violent one that brings painful consequences to their lives.

Werewolf Short Werehouse Coming this Halloween

Published

on

Director Daniel Mark Young, you you may remember for the horror shorts Stranger, Night Terrors, and Run, is currently raising funds on Kickstarter to complete his latest ambitious project, the werewolf short Werehouse. Like most of Mark Young’s films, it will be penned by his frequent writing partner James Craigie.

As its name suggests, Werehouse will be a werewolf tale set inside, you’ve guessed it, a warehouse. A group of students seek refuge in the storage facility to escape from a violent protest, but they find that they may be in even greater danger after discovering that a ravenous beast may be trapped inside with them. The short will star Amy Tyger, Harriet Rees, Oliver Roy, and Derek Nelson.

Werehouse will be shot in black and white, although the filmmakers are using a special technique to isolate the color red in order to highlight the copious amounts of blood shown onscreen. Should the funding be successful, filming is expected to commence in April, and the film will be released on Amazon Instant Video this Halloween.

Los Angeles Overnight – Do Us a Favor and Watch This Exclusive Clip

Published

on

Weird. That’s exactly what this exclusive clip from the indie flick Los Angeles Overnight is, and we’re ready to share every pixel of it with ya! Why? Because we like weird. A lot.

The directorial debut of filmmaker Michael Chrisoulakis will launch a limited national, theatrical release on March 9, followed by a digital release through Freestyle Digital Media on March 20.

Synopsis:
Inspired by the L.A. Modern Noir genre and populated with distinct and dynamic characters, Arielle Brachfeld (Consumption) stars as Priscilla, a struggling actress who inherits a bevy of colorful villains after desperation drives her and her gullible boyfriend, a lovelorn mechanic (Azim Rizk, Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk), to steal big from the Los Angeles underworld.

No amount of preparation could ever prepare this actress for a blood-soaked role filled with seedy criminals and “hot loot.” Entirely shot in Los Angeles, the cast is appropriately peppered with titans of the Hollywood scene including Peter Bogdanovich, Sally Kirkland, and recent CineAsia Lifetime Achievement Award recipient Lin Shaye.

Insidious Composer Joseph Bishara’s Score for The Worthy Being Released Tomorrow

Published

on

Tomorrow will see the digital release of the original soundtrack for The Worthy, a post-apocalyptic thriller that was one of the largest Arabic genre film productions in the Middle East. Featuring music by Joseph Bishara (Insidious, The Conjuring), the album will be released via the composer’s label, void recordings. Pre-orders are already open on Bandcamp.

Bishara explains, “Going into this, it was clear that [director] Ali [Mostafa] didn’t want a necessarily Middle Eastern sound though the film is of the region. He described it as taking place in a world after extremism, a relatable and possibly devastating scenario.

The composer adds, “Thematically the film deals with personalities that emerge through orchestrated chaos and how various types handle danger and adversity. There is a clear path for the hero to rise out of the situation, and his musical journey was worked backwards starting with the final scene, then deconstructing into the earlier setup.

The Worthy was directed by Ali F. Mostafa and written by Vikram Weet. It stars Ali Suliman, Maisa Abd Elhadi, Mahmoud Al Atrash, Samer Ismail, and Habib Ghuloom.
