Dick Johnson & Tommygun vs. the Cannibal Cop Wraps; See the First StillsDick Johnson & Tommygun vs. the Cannibal Cop has wrapped principal photography in Buffalo, NY, and we have the first set of stills right here. Get a look at this upcoming horror comedy, or face the wrath of Dick. Trust us… Dick wrath sucks.

The film, an action-horror-buddy cop hybrid, was written by John Renna, who co-stars with Sam Qualiana. Danny Hicks, Debbie Rochon, and Timothy Patrick Quill are also in the cast.

“Working with Danny and Tim, and finally getting to direct Debbie, was a true honor,” says Renna.

He also gives a lot of credit to his location, “The support we received from local businesses was staggering. Buffalo actively supports film and art, making a lot possible on a minimal budget.”

Qualiana plays Dick Johnson, a by-the-book detective who partners with rough-around-the-edges Jeff “Tommygun” Thompson to track down the elusive and mysterious Cannibal Cop. Hicks plays their captain, who takes an active role in the manhunt; Rochon plays a police woman who holds the secret to the mayhem; and Quill plays Shabby Sammy, an underworld connection. The rest of the cast is played by Buffalo locals, and the rock group Pinky Doodle performs in the film.

“What we’ve accomplished on such a small budget is really remarkable,” says Chris Rados, who co-produced and co-directed the film with Renna and served as its cinematographer. “There’s action, comedy, and a touch of horror to keep fans of each genre happy. Throw in Debbie, Danny, and Tim; and I think we have something special.”

The filmmakers still need to shoot additional action and special effects inserts but plan to finish their opus by the end of the year. Cheryl Clements served as executive producer through her company River Ridge Reels.

Here’s Episode One of Dan Yadin’s Stop-Motion Animated Comedy I Want to Kill

Published

on

Brooklyn-based writer/director/filmmaker Dan Yadin’s new dark and twisted animated comedy “i want to kill” has premiered and you can watch the utter madness below.

The episode stars comedians James Adomian (@midnight, Children’s Hospital, Comedy Bang! Bang!), Amber Nelson (Guy Code, Netflix’s ‘Characters’) and Clark Jones (HBO’s ‘Crashing’, Brooklyn’s 50 Funniest People).

“i want to kill” is made from cardboard sets and low-rent stop motion and it is pretty damn strange if you ask me. But if that’s your thing then I think you’ll enjoy the animated series.

Check it out below and then make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think!

Synopsis:

Astronaut Robert Holeman is fed up with Suburbia, after years of desires going unrealized and confronting his privilege, boredom, and mortality he’s been nudged into a sort of suicidal/genocidal nihilism stoked by a steady diet of drugs. The violent fantasies, anger, and fear don’t belong to just Robert, but also to his neglected girlfriend and son. “i want to kill” is about catharsis and release. Anger unchecked leads to emptiness, but boy is it funny.

Go Christmas Caroling with The Killing of a Sacred Deer

Published

on

Given that I personally have gone Christmas caroling with various lunatics hopped up on eggnog, what the hell… why not go Christmas caroling with The Killing of a Sacred Deer? Dig on this latest clip!

Look for the flick starring Colin Farrell (Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, In Bruges, 2009) and co-starring Oscar winner Nicole Kidman (Best Actress, The Hours, 2003) to hit Blu-ray, DVD, and digital on January 23rd. Yorgos Lanthimos directs.

Special features include “An Impossible Conundrum” featurette, and the package will be priced at $24.99 and $19.98, respectively.

Synopsis:
Dr. Steven Murphy (Farrell) is a renowned cardiovascular surgeon presiding over a spotless household with his ophthalmologist wife, Anna (Kidman), and their two exemplary children, 12-year-old Bob (Sunny Suljic) and 14-year-old Kim (Raffey Cassidy). Lurking at the margins of Steven’s idyllic suburban existence is Martin (Barry Keoghan), a fatherless teen he has covertly taken under his wing.

As Martin begins insinuating himself into the family’s life in ever-more unsettling displays, the full scope of his intent becomes menacingly clear when he confronts Steven with a long-forgotten transgression that will shatter the Murphy family’s domestic bliss.

Which Monsters May Be Making Their TV Debut in Junji Ito Collection?

Published

on

Studio Deen’s highly-anticipated anime anthology Junji Ito Collection has been building buzz, especially since its new teaser dropped weeks ago. Eagle-eyed fans who are well-acquainted with horror mangaka Junji Ito’s body of work will spot some familiar faces in the new trailer, brought to the small screen by showrunner Shinobu Tagashira.

So, who among Ito’s famous menagerie of monsters may be making an appearance in the show when it airs next year?

Oshikiri Toru

Oshikiri is the morally-questionable highschooler who begins to question his perception of reality in Hallucinations, a series of some loosely connected one-shots. Oshikiri’s a little on the short side, with an even shorter fuse. One thing he’s not short on is moneyas evidenced by his impressive, albeit creepy, mansion. We’ve yet to see which of his adventureswhich range from murder to parallel dimensionswill be his television debut.

Yuuko

The once-chatty Yuuko falls ill and sees her worst fears come to pass in Slug Girl, the famous one-shot whose brand of body horror is sure to feel like a distant cousin (or maybe a predecessor?) to Uzumaki‘s “The Snail” chapter. It offers little in the way of answers but is best enjoyed in all its bizarre glory.

The Intersection Bishounen

In Lovesick Dead, one of Ito’s longer standalone stories, an urban legend causes a rash of suicides when young girls begin to call upon a mysterious, black-clad spirit called the Intersection Bishounen. The custom catches on quickly among teenagers, out late and eager for him to tell them their fortune in life and love, since his advice is to die for. Literally.

Souichi Tsujii

A long-running recurring character in Ito’s manga (probably second only to Tomie herself), you’ll know Souichi by the nails he sucks on or sticks out of his moutha strange habit borne out of an iron deficiency. He’s an impish kid whose fascination with the supernatural makes him the odd man out in an otherwise normal family. The morbid pranks he likes to playfunny only to him—don’t do much to endear him to his peers or relatives, either.

Fuchi

The titular character in Fashion Model, Fuchi works as a professional model for her, shall we say, unique look and Amazonian stature. When she and another actress are hired by a crew of indie filmmakers, Fuchi shows them that she doesn’t like sharing the limelight. She also makes a cameo in a couple of Souichi’s stories, and in them he finds her genuinely attractive. Beauty, after all, is in the eye of the beholder.
