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.

Night of the Living Dead 4K and The Silence of the Lambs Come to the Criterion Collection

Published

on

It’s been a long time coming for these two classics, especially Night of the Living Dead after the ridiculously bad transfer put out by Mill Creek Entertainment, whose transfer was supposedly remastered from a new 2K scan. I swear I thought it was some kind of a joke when I first put it on to watch. In any event…

IndieWire is reporting that horror classics Night of the Living Dead and The Silence of the Lambs will be added to the 2018 Criterion Collection, a hallmark label for home video cinephiles.

According to the site, Criterion will release a new 4K digital restoration of The Silence of the Lambs, which has been approved by the movie’s cinematographer Tak Fujimoto. Included on the DVD and Blu-ray sets are 35 minutes of deleted scenes and audio commentary from 1994 featuring the late Jonathan Demme (director), stars Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins, screenwriter Ted Tally, and former FBI agent John Douglas.

Night of the Living Dead will also be released in 4K with never-before-seen 16mm dailies included as a bonus feature(!).

These will be added in February of 2018 so make sure you save up some cash after the holidays!

Published

on

Two weeks ago we let you guys know that Tremors mainstay Michael Gross, aka Burt Gummer, was, unfortunately, not asked to be a part of the upcoming Syfy reboot series starring Kevin Bacon.

While that news upsets us a bit, being that the series has only filmed its pilot episode, we feel that there is still a big chance we could see Burt return to kick some more Graboids in the tentacle-thingies with elephant guns.

Fingers crossed.

Speaking of the “Tremors Syfy pilot, recently star Kevin Bacon took to Instagram to let us all know that filming has wrapped!

You can check out The Bacon’s post below and then make sure to hit us up and let us know how excited you are for Syfy’s “Tremors” series in the comments below!

In the Tremors follow-up, written by Andrew Miller, the killer Graboid worms that nearly destroyed Perfection, NV, 25 years ago are back; and the town’s only hope for survival is Valentine McKee (Bacon), who beat them once. But to do it again he’ll have to overcome age, alcohol, and a delusional hero complex.

“Tremors” the TV series is headed our way courtesy of Jason Blum’s Blumhouse TV and Universal Cable Prods.

We’ll let you know when we hear more about the series!

So long to NM. Had an amazing time shooting this pilot. Hope I can keep walking in these boots #Tremors

Exclusive: Buzzard Hollow Beef Brings Cannibal Gore to the Holidays

Published

on

Holidays at the end of the year seem to be focused on one major aspect: food. From Christmas hams to Thanksgiving turkeys to Hanukkah latkes to who knows what else, eating is a very important part for end-of-the-year festivities. Personally, I’m totally okay with it because it means great food and TONS of leftovers, ensuring that I don’t have to concern myself with cooking for at least a couple of days.

But what if the holiday season were a bit more sinister and what if the food was a bit more…unsavory? Allow us to introduce you to Buzzard Hollow Beef, a new vision of horror that blends cannibal hillbillies, intense and terrifying hallucinations, and small town mysteries. If this sounds up your alley, then don’t fret about waiting because the film comes to Amazon Prime, iTunes, and other transactional platforms on Tuesday, November 21!

We’ve got a trailer, poster, and several stills for you to check out, so peruse at your will and enjoy!

Directed by Joshua M. Johnson, who co-wrote the film with Tara C. Hall, Buzzard Hollow Beef stars Bruce Jennings, Nadia Kamil, Scott C. Brown, Emily Letts, Janet Chiarabaglio, Amanda Spinella, Will Frazier, Gabriel Caste, and Doug Perkins.

Synopsis:
Still reeling from her divorce and struggling as the single mother of a 9 month old, Jordan Vollmer looks forward to a relaxing Thanksgiving weekend with her family and her best friend, Paige. As the group ventures into the small town of Buzzard Hollow, they are greeted with strange and unsavory characters, known around these parts as the Solomon family. Their suspicions surrounding the Solomons are aroused by the fact that they all seem unwilling to talk about the beef that they serve in their hamburgers and sell in their butcher shop. When the Vollmers experience horrifying hallucinations, they begin to suspect that the Solomons are somehow involved.
