Exclusive Pics From Walking Distance!



Walking Distance pics!Indie director Mel House dropped us a line yesterday with new pics from and an update on his “>Closet Space (review) follow-up, Walking Distance.

Filming wrapped on July 20th, and now House and the crew from Oddtopsy FX are working on ”a ton of really whacked-out FX stuff for 2nd unit” House told us. ”We should be done with that soon, at which point I can really jump headlong into the editing process and start getting shots to our digital FX team – who really have their work cut out for them as well. Fortunately, these guys have worked with the likes of Robert Rodriguez and Wolfgang Petersen, so I think we’re in good hands on that front.”

Walking Distance pics!Needless to say, House has upped the ante on his second directorial effort, working with people who have been among the best in the business. The cast includes Adrienne King (Friday the 13th), Reggie Bannister, Kathy Lamkin (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre redux), Glen Morshower (Transformers) and Debbie Rochon.

For those unaware, Walking Distance takes place in a small, seemingly idyllic community where everything you could possibly need is in walking distance. But when the perceived utopia is infiltrated by a group of individuals with their own ties and agendas, stranger and stranger things begin to happen until reality itself is in question.

Walking Distance pics!Personally I can’t wait to see how this one turns out, especially considering how much potential there was in House’s debut effort. The director says a teaser will likely be ready before Fear Fest 3, so stay tuned for word on that. For now you can dig on the new images we were provided and head over to the Walking Distance MySpace page to learn more!

The Russo Brothers

Recently, The Tension Experience announced that they will be teaming with Anthony and Joe Russo’s company AGBO to develop new immersive experiences, destinations and brand partnerships.

In this new joint venture, AGBO will be joining as producers of the groundbreaking show and support the development and expansion of Tension to more cities.

We’re always searching for new and innovative ways to interpret narrative,” said Anthony and Joe Russo. “We’re beyond impressed by the wholly immersive experience that Tension has brought to all of their shows, and we look forward to helping them expand their reach.”

The Tension Experience was created nearly three years ago by director Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw II, III, IV), writer Clint Sears and producer Gordon Bijelonic. The immersive theater experience allows fans become the stars of their own real-life, cinema-quality thrillers that have taken place all over the country, incorporated nearly hundreds of actors.

As a consumer, I became passive… I sit back and I watch while things happen around me,” Bousman says. “I wanted to feel more engaged. I needed something to wake me up and inspire me. Immersive theater did that. It forces the audience to be active. We want to create environments where the audiences are the stars… Their action unlocks the narrative.”

When we embarked on this journey our goal was to change and disrupt the traditional storytelling format,” said producer Gordon Bijelonic. “We wanted to give our audiences a true visceral experience incorporating all five Human Senses.”

The first planned project is the creation of a permanent destination in Las Vegas. This high-end interactive entertainment and nightlife experience will be a fully realized living and breathing world ready to react to all of the audience’s individual choices and decisions and will also incorporate new and cutting-edge technology that will be in play before, during and after you step through their doors.

This is the most fulfilling creative endeavor we could possibly be involved with. It’s unparalleled in its scope and possibilities,’ stated writer Clint Sears. “The team feels that their experience along with the unparalleled creative force of AGBO will help create the most exciting immersive collaboration in the world.”

SXSW 2018: Wildling Review – A Fresh and Mature Take on Werewolves



Starring Bel Powley, Liv Tyler, Brad Dourif, Collin Kelly-Sordelet

Written by Fritz Böhm and Florian Eder

Directed by Fritz Böhm

Wildling follows Anna (Powley) who was raised in captivity by her “daddy” (Dourif), only to be thrust into the real world as a young woman with no concept or preparation for anything she sees or experiences, both in her surroundings and within her own body. Staying with Sheriff Ellen Cooper (Tyler) and her younger brother Ray (Kelly-Sordelet), Anna must acclimate in short time to the expectations of those around her, making this coming-of-age tale difficult because she is at such a disadvantage. However, we quickly learn that Anna is no ordinary person in that she is not a person at all: she is a Wildling, a werewolf-like creature whose transformation was being held back by Dourif’s injections.

What makes Wildling so interesting is how the transformation of Powley into the titular character twists the traditional werewolf mechanism into a metaphor for Anna’s own metamorphosis from a young girl into a formidable and entirely capable, albeit not human, woman. That the men of the small town that this film takes place in see this as a threat is not a subtlety that is meant to be passed over. Even in her innocence, Anna does not succumb to the demands and pressures of those around her, fending off a near rape by a local high school boy and standing up to her “daddy” as she realizes her own self worth.

Powley plays her role with charming confused innocence while Tyler plays the mother to Dourif’s “daddy”. She takes on the role of helping teach Anna what being a young woman is all about, from buying her tampons to giving her advice on what kinds of boys to avoid. Dourif, while always darkly charismatic and captivating, pulls deep into his acting chops for this role, bringing a nuanced representation of patriarchal control coupled with an inability to understand his “daughter” and her needs.

Beautifully filmed by Toby Oliver (Get Out, Insidious: The Last Key), Wildling immerses viewers in an almost fairy tale-like world. The town feels like a secluded berg while the surrounding forest teems with life and a magical air hovers in its branches. That being said, the film sometimes gets a bit too dark to see properly and the music is largely forgettable. Still, those minor complaints aside, Wildling is a wonderfully fresh take on what the werewolf subgenre has to offer.

  • Wildling


Wildling takes traditional the werewolf transformation mechanism and uses it as the foundation for a more immediate and relatable story, one that will especially resonate with female audiences.
