Full 2014 Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Fest Lineup Announced



2014 buffralo dreamsThe Buffalo, New York, area is making quite a name for itself in the indie horror realm, and set to kick off in just a few weeks is the Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival, which shines a light on both notable new international films and homegrown talent involved in the genre and beyond. Here are ALL the details for 2014:

From the Press Release
Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival, which runs Friday, November 7th, through Thursday, November 13th, at the Dipson Eastern Hills Cinema, has announced a diverse selection of films for its sophomore season. Eastern Hills Cinema is located in the Eastern Hills Mall, 4545 Transit Road in Williamsville, New York.

The mission of Buffalo Dreams is to bring the finest independent films from around the world to Buffalo and to spotlight the most talented artists from Buffalo’s burgeoning film production community. The festival focuses on science fiction, fantasy, horror, action, thriller, and animation and this year included comedy for the local categories.

Some highlights from this year’s slate include the Buffalo Premiere of The Romans, a crime drama written and directed by Korey Green and co-written and executive produced by Larry Quinn, former owner of the Buffalo Sabers; a new spaghetti western, 6 Bullets to Hell; the Mexican metaphysical mindbender El Incidente/The Incident, which premiered at the prestigious Sitges Film Festival and sold out four screenings at Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas; and the sci-fi flavored action film Channeling, which combines reality TV, car chases, and cutting edge technology. In all, the festival will screen 19 feature films, two medium length films, 39 shorts, and 12 music videos. In addition, the festival will judge 18 entries in its Original Screenplay Competition. Eighty-six works were selected from almost 300 submissions from around the world.

“This year’s roster of outstanding films proves we’re about more than horror films, ” says Dreams co-founder Gregory Lamberson. “We program all genres and feature several comedies and a local drama, and we continue to support locally produced films such as Rhonda Parker’s romantic comedy Friends Don’t Let Friends – Date Friends, Ken Consentino’s horror thriller Within, and 13-year-old Hope Muelbauer’s short film Zombie Kids.”

Many films at the festival will be followed by Q&As with the filmmakers. Green, Quinn, and several cast members from The Romans will attend their gala event, and Isaac Ezban is traveling to Buffalo from Mexico City to present El Incidente. Canadian filmmaker Brett Kelly will screen his James Bond spoof Spyfall, and Ryan Bellgardt is coming from Oklahoma to show his raucous time travel adventure Army of Frankensteins.

“The notifications from filmmakers who will be attending are already pouring in,” says Lamberson’s partner, Chris Scioli. “Last year 30 filmmakers came to screen their work. This is what makes a film festival truly special: the opportunity for festival goers to interact with filmmakers of all stripes and for the filmmakers to network with each other. A real camaraderie develops that shows the city at its best.”

A complete listing of all selected films follows. Admission is $9.00 per block, usually consisting of one micro-short or music video, one short, and one feature, with a $7.00 discount available for students, seniors, and patrons with military ID. A Day Pass for four features on Saturday, November 8th, costs $25, and Day Passes for Sunday-Thursday (three features per day) cost $20. An All Festival Pass costs $99. Advance tickets will go on sale soon from Dipson Theatres, and you can get more info on the Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival website. Submissions for 2015 will open in December.

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost Are Truth Seekers Playing by Slaughterhouse Rulez



One of our favorite pairings of stars from the last twenty years is no doubt that of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Their chemistry is undeniable, and if you didn’t get enough of it in “Spaced,” Shawn of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World’s End, and Paul, you’re about to get a bellyful of it on both big and small screens.

Variety is reporting that Frost and Pegg will be starring in “Truth Seekers,” a half-hour comedy-horror TV show about a three-person paranormal investigation team.

According to the site, each installment of “Truth Seekers” will focus on a paranormal incident, a setup with clear monster-of-the-week potential. “Each episode is going to be an adventure, a potential haunting or something,” Pegg says. “It’ll start as a very parochial idea, a very small business venture for these people, but it will expand as the series goes on to be something far more global. It’s a language everyone understands, the mystery of the unknown. Shaun of the Dead was a very parochial story set in North London, and somehow it managed to get this global reach because everyone understands the language of zombie movies.

That’s not all, though… the pair are also working on the feature film Slaughterhouse Rulez, a horror-comedy now in post-production. Directed by Crispian Mills and set in a well-to-do public school, the movie is “very satirical, very much about the U.K. selling itself off,” Pegg says. “It’s about fracking as well, and that unleashes some awful subterranean demon.

Both of these projects will be released under their Stolen Picture shingle. Stay tuned, kids! More as we get it!
