The End of the World Begins February 24th in Battle Apocalypse

Published

on

It’s been quite some time since we’ve gotten on update on Chrysalis from director John Klein, but now that Barnholtz Entertainment and Cinedigm are bringing the acclaimed Glass City Films/Huckpoten Entertainment production to DVD on February 24th, we have the film’s new title to share along with fresh stills, artwork, and even a clip!

From the Press Release:
The award-winning post-apocalyptic zombie film Chrysalis, following a successful run at film festivals across the country, will be released in North America as Battle Apocalypse by Barnholtz Entertainment via Cinedigm. It will be available for purchase on DVD starting on February 24th in addition to its already available digital form.

Funded entirely by Kickstarter donations and serving as a prime example of the new wave of crowdfunding sweeping the indie film community, Battle Apocalypse is a showcase for the award-winning Chicago-based Glass City Films and for the incredibly talented cast and crew available in the Midwest, including award-winning actors Sara Gorsky (Best Actress: NYC Horror Fest, Tucson Terrorfest, Miami SciFi Fest, NOLA Horror) and Cole Simon (Best Actor: Trail Dance Film Festival). 

Glass City Films founder and Battle Apocalypse director John Klein says, “We’ve had an amazing groundswell of support, first through the Kickstarter campaign and now out on the festival circuit. We have always put Midwest talent on par with what’s available on the coasts, and this film really showcases what we have to offer here.”

Cast on the surface as a zombie-centric horror film, Battle Apocalypse – produced in association with Huckpoten Entertainment and written and lensed by Ben Kurstin – soon reveals itself to be more about the drama of survival in a harsh world than the guts and gore traditionally associated with the genre. As viewers follow Josh (Simon) and Penelope (Gorsky) through a post-apocalyptic world decades removed from the outbreak of an infection, the most terrifying aspect for audiences will be the snapshot they see of the future their cities might encounter. When the nomadic duo rescue the mysterious Abira (Tanya Thai McBride) and slowly determine what secrets she may or may not be hiding, the true terror begins.

As Chrysalis, the film is already available on VHX at TheRestAreDead.com and on Vimeo On Demand for streaming or purchase. The film has won several awards and screened at dozens of film festivals, including the Wasteland Film Festival, the New York City Horror Film Festival, and the NOLA Horror Film Festival. Beginning February 24, Battle Apocalypse will be available at various retailers in-store and online, including Walmart, Best Buy, Amazon, K-Mart, Movies Unlimited, and several others.  Both available versions include behind-the-scenes features.

Klein says, “We were incredibly ambitious from start to finish with this project. We believed in Ben’s great script and story and knew we could do the film at a certain cost and make it look amazing regardless of the bottom line.  And we’re so proud and honored that Barnholtz Entertainment recognized the quality of our film and saw fit to give it a wider release through Cinedigm!”

Vampire Movie Living Among Us Playing In US Theaters This February

Published

on

The vampire movie Living Among Us will be playing in screens across the US on February 2, and you can learn more from the following press release.

From the Press Release:
The anticipated supernatural vampire movie Living Among Us from writer/director Brian A. Metcalf will hit select theaters across the country on Friday February 2nd, 2018.

Starring the late John Heard (Home Alone), Ésme Bianco (Game of Thrones), Thomas Ian Nicholas (American Pie), William Sadler (The Shawshank Redemption), James Russo (Django Unchained), Andrew Keegan (10 Things I Hate About You), Jordan Hinson (Eureka), Hunter Gomez (National Treasure), and Jessica Morris (The Wrong Man), Living Among Us is a fresh modern twist on the vampire movie genre. Vampires have been revealed to the world at a blood donation facility by a local news team. Now, the vampires’ sectional leader, Samuel (William Sadler), has spoken out to explain that they wish only to coexist with humans and mean no harm.

Vampires have just made themselves public! A group of documentary filmmakers have been invited to spend time with a family of vampires and learn how they live. But as reality sets in, the crew realizes they are in for far more than they bargained for.

Best known for his role as the father in the Home Alone movie series, Living Among Us is the final movie starring John Heard, who passed away in July 2017. Heard plays the role of Andrew, the father of the vampire family, alongside his wife Elleanor (Ésme Bianco) and their children Blake (Andrew Keegan) and Sybil (Jessica Morris).

When crewmembers Mike (Thomas Ian Nicholas), Aaron (James Russo), Carrie (Jordan Hinson) and Benny (Hunter Gomez) realize things are not what they seem, they risk everything to get as much footage as possible, but must battle to escape the scene alive and reveal their footage to the world.

Living Among Us is an entertaining, modern supernatural horror and a commentary on today’s society, media and politics. It examines how ratings can take importance over safety and how leaders will manipulate the public and shield truths.

The filmmakers have partnered with Vision Films, Prekindle and Alamo Drafthouse to present an exclusive offer for fans who pre-order tickets before January 19th. They will receive a signed headshot by Living Among Us star and producer Thomas Ian Nicholas (American Pie, Rookie of the Year, Walt Before Mickey), and a free digital download of the film.

Living Among Us is a Red Compass Media production produced by Brian Metcalf and Thomas Ian Nicholas and executive produced by Ben Chan, with Vision Films handling worldwide distribution.

Director and producer Brian A. Metcalf says: “Living Among Us is a contemporary American New Wave horror film that subverts the traditional vampire mythos and fuses it with modern day science and technology. I hope audiences enjoy it!”

Managing Director / CEO of Vision Films Lise Romanoff says: “The performances are amazing. The Vampire family appears to be a normal family except for the sociopathic son. Then when things turned sadistic, while that in itself wasn’t a surprise, you are still affected never-the-less!”
