Annette O'Toole and John Glover Join the Cast of We Go OnHow far would you go to prove that the afterlife exists? Would you pay cash? Would you go even further than that? There’s one thing we know for sure: Searching for that particular answer can lead to some really dark places. Speaking of which…

From the Press Release
Untethered Films has announced that Annette O’Toole (pictured; “Smallville,” Superman III, Stephen King’s IT) and John Glover (“Smallville,” Gremlins 2) will co-star in We Go On, the second feature film from YellowBrickRoad creators Jesse Holland and Andy Mitton, who are writing and directing the new project.

Rounding out the main cast are Clark Freeman, Laura Heisler, and Mexican actress Giovanna Zacarias (The Legend of Zorro). The producers are Irina Popov, Richard W. King, and Logan Brown. Principal photography is scheduled to begin in Los Angeles next week.

We Go On is a modern-day ghost story about a man’s search for proof of the afterlife and the shocking evidence that he uncovers. Determined to overcome his life-long fear of death, Miles Grissom purchases an ad in the local paper offering $70,000 to anyone who can provide proof that the afterlife exists. Miles’ protective mother, Charlotte, joins him on his quest as he filters through thousands of responses and finds three viable candidates: a science professor, a local medium working in a Mexican restaurant, and a worldly entrepreneur.

Miles and Charlotte’s complex relationship, mysterious family history, and shared compulsion to probe life’s dark edges propel them into a life-threatening nightmare. After confronting fakers and con artists, Miles comes face to face with the proof he was looking for. But his joyride to the other side turns hellish as he discovers the hard way that ghosts, once found, aren’t easily lost. Nightmare visions turn Miles against his mother, and as the haunting becomes unbearable, he must choose between living in hell and committing an unforgivable sin.

The filmmakers are excited to shoot in Los Angeles. The real-life ghost town of Surfridge, near LAX, piqued the writers’ interest as a mysterious and unexplored piece of Los Angeles history that they could draw upon. Andy Mitton explains his fascination: “The earliest Hollywood stars made this place their beach paradise in the 1920s, until the neighboring airport grew huge and roaring jets and dripping fuel chased them all away. Now, the streetlights still go on at night, but no one’s home. We couldn’t believe we have both lived in LA for over a decade and never heard of the place. And then we saw it, flying in on an airplane, out the window. Just a scary, empty, uncared-for little grid – perfect for our ghost story.”

Mitton and Holland are intent on making an intelligent, compelling, and terrifying motion picture designed to build on the fervent audience gained by their first feature, YellowBrickRoad, which premiered at Slamdance, won the Best Feature Award at the New York Horror Festival, and played Screamfest and other genre fests throughout the world. Earlier, the duo contributed a segment to the horror anthology film Chilling Visions: 5 Senses of Fear. The directors plan to appeal to a wider slice of the thirsty fan-base with rich, rewarding themes and character journeys, in addition to the visceral scares the audience expects.

“I LOVE a good, smart psychological horror film,” says O’Toole, “and Andy Mitton and Jesse Holland’s script for We Go On is just that, combining elements of the work of Ross MacDonald with that of Stephen King. It also happens to have a juicy part for me, so I expect to have great fun working on it with these very talented young filmmakers.”

Mitton and Holland, who have told stories together since meeting at Middlebury College in Vermont, are also experienced post-production professionals; both were editors on each of their films, with Mitton also sound designing and Holland providing visual effects. We Go On’s Director of Photography is Jeffrey Waldron.

Channel 4’s New Series True Horror Opens With A Warning For Nervous Viewers

Published

on

If you live in the UK, now has never been a better time to renew your TV license. That’s because Channel 4 are broadcasting a new dramatized documentary series called “True Horror”, which will take you into the heart of four terrifying true horror stories.

In pure Channel 4 style, each episode will open with a disclaimer reading “scenes of paranormal activity may disturb viewers”, before heading straight into a mix of both real life interviews and scripted segments. The first season of “True Horror” will consist of four episodes, with a special called “The Witches’ Prison” also being broadcast on Halloween. Today’s episode will be called “Hellfire Farm”, and will recount the tale of a couple who moved into a supposedly haunted farm in the Welsh countryside. This installment was directed by BAFTA nominee Tom Kingsley, and will be shown at 10pm.

“True Horror” was produced by “The Enfield Haunting’s” Jamie Campbell and Joel Wilson, and stars James Dryden, Charlotte Eaton, Sammy Williams, Katie Jarvis, Adam Leese, Amy Morgan, and James Tarpey. And you really should watch the series, because it needs the ratings. If not, we’re just gonna get more of the soap opera and singing competition garbage that usually dominates British TV.

Agony Had To Be Censored To Avoid An Adults Only Rating; PC Version Can Be Played Uncut

Published

on

Agony looks like one of the most explicit games we’ve ever seen, so it comes as no surprise that it had to be slightly censored in order to avoid an Adults Only rating from the ESRB. Now, before you go bitching about how much you hate censorship, keep in mind that the changes made to the game were minimal, with the camera having to be slightly obscured during some of the most extreme sequences so that it could secure an M-rating.

As AO-rated games are never released on consoles, the version of Agony coming to PS4 and Xbox One will be the slightly altered M-rated edition, whilst the PC version will come with an optional patch to remove the censorship and to experience a fully uncut version of the game.

As anyone familiar with the history of the ESRB will know, this isn’t the first time that a non-pornographic game ventured into Adults Only territory. The Punisher and Manhunt 2 both had to be censored in order to avoid an AO rating, whilst Hatred was released uncut on Steam with the rating intact.

Agony, which takes place in Hell, was developed by Madmind Studio, and will be published by PlayWay later this year.
