The producers of the hit web series Throwing Stones have told us from the beginning that Season 1 was all about establishing the characters and Season 2 would begin the bloodbath. Well, get ready to see if they live up to their promise because Season 2 kicks off on January 3rd, 2012.

With an entertaining cast and promotion by MTV, Throwing Stones looks like it’s on the right track to continued success. You can check out their Facebook page or follow them on Twitter @stoneswebseries. The series is loosely based on a feature length screenplay of the same name by writers Bart D. Van Bemmel and Jason A. Wheeler. For more info visit the official Throwing Stones website.

To tide you over until January 3rd, we’ve got the exclusive one-sheet and trailer below! Check them out!

From the Press Release
Throwing Stones, the teen horror drama about students sent to Saturday School to learn a lesson, has become one of the most watched series on the Internet ever since MTV producers fell in love with it and began posting episodes on their Facebook pages. The series was always designed to have multiple seasons to follow.

Where the first season was about getting to know the students at Blair High while focusing more on the psychological elements, the second season moves into full slasher mode. After finally coming together to overcome their differences, the students of Blair High are violently separated and forced to follow Mr. Beckett’s new set of rules. One by one he challenges each student’s will to live as he pushes his Broken Window Theory to the test. Their objective is to survive.

Popular indie horror director Jon Keeyes (Suburban Nightmare, American Nightmare) came on to direct the second season, which stars Chad Cox (Powder, The Good Guys), Cherami Leigh (Fast Food Nation, HBO’s “Temple Grandin”), Rebekah Kennedy (Creature, Season of the Witch), Lindsay Seidel (The Final), Bryan Massey (Mad Money, Boggy Creek), Kayla Carlyle (From the Dark), Lynn Andrews (“MTV’s: High School Stories,” The Ghost of Goodnight Lane), Spencer Harlan (the upcoming Drive-In Massacre) and other up-and-comers. Syfy’s second season of Face/Off will also have Henry Henry as one of its contestants, a special F/X make-up artist on Throwing Stones.

Once the series launches on Tuesday, January 3, 2012 – you will be able to watch, 24-hours a day and for free, on the following networks or on their home page. Several episodes will be released over the period of (4) weeks:

  • KoldCast TV

    Oy! HANNUKAH THE MOVIE Aims to Get Made After Nearly a Decade

    Published

    on

    This menorah has nothing to do with the story but, c'mon! It's a freaking T-rex menorah!

    As a Jew, seeing holiday-themed horror movies is both a wonderful and bittersweet occasion. I love seeing my friends celebrate the holidays that are near and dear to their hearts but elevated with the viscera, gore, and terror that I so dearly love. But while Christians have films like Black Christmas, Santa’s Slay, Gremlins, Red Christmas, Krampus, etc…, the amount of horror films centered around Jewish holidays is slim to none. Don’t get me wrong here, okay? I’m well aware of population dynamics and, therefore, interest in a given subject/life experience. It’d just be nice to see something like that now and again.

    Oh, but what’s this? Looks like writer/director Eben McGarr is ready to move forward on his near decade long project Hanukkah The Movie, a “TORAH-fying new tale of HORAH!” I get it. Sensible chuckle awarded.

    Obediah Lazarus is the son of Judah Lazarus, the original Hanukkiller. In 1983 Judah terrorized NY for seven nights and was preparing to sacrifice his eight-year-old son, Obediah, on the eighth night. Judah was convinced it was God’s will, like Abraham and Isaac, to sacrifice his only son to God. Luckily for Obediah, police tracked Judah down and stopped the sacrifice, but Judah was gunned down in the process. Warped by hatred with no guidance, Obediah Lazarus becomes a religious extremist, intolerant of non-Jews, “bad Jews”, and those he perceives to be enemies of the Jewish faith. He is about to unleash eight nights of horror.

    A group of Jewish teens are getting ready to party for the holidays but are in for a Festival of Frights. With the help of a wise rabbi, they deduce that the murder victims have violated Judaic law and that their only chance at survival is to embrace their faith.

    The film has supposedly taken care of the majority of pre-production, so they’re now on Indiegogo with the goal to raise $100,000. Not a small amount but certainly not an unachievable goal. If a potato salad Kickstarter that wanted $10 ended up with nearly $56,000, I think this has a chance.

    PANTHER RIDGE Review – When Your New Job Takes You To Interesting Locations

    Published

    on

    Starring Chenara Imrith, Kerry Hempel, Seth Goodfellow

    Written by Ryan Swantek

    Directed by Ryan Swantek


    Director Ryan Swantek’s graphic-take on a young woman unhappy with her looks in White Willow was in my useless opinion, one of the strongest short films to hit the horror genre in quite some time. It was brutal, unflinchingly ruthless to eyeball, and best of all for a first-time directorial effort, there was no apology for what was put before us – let’s venture over to Panther Ridge.

    So what comes around in the second-time in the big guy’s chair? Well, when I’d heard that it was a sadistic look into the BDSM scene, I’ll admit I was a bit intrigued (no, I’m not into that stuff, ya kooks) – I’d just honestly hoped for a bit more than what was tossed to me. This particular short film is titled Panther Ridge, and it tells the story of a young lady who is getting a fresh start in a new career – that of a dominatrix, of sorts. As this presentation begins, she’s smack dab in the middle of a dungeon with a very unlucky prisoner and the woman who will be guiding her in her “training.” I’ll tell ya, first days on the job can be stressful, but with the correct forms of relief, you can make it through the day all the while exorcising some pent up demons as well.

    Commence brutality upon this poor tied-up fool and the lass roped up across from him, for they know not what lies in store for them next, but rest assured they’ll be making a blood donation whether they want to or not. Unfortunately my self-imposed hype proved to be insurmountable as Swantek’s second time up to the plate resulted (for me, anyway) in a big swing and a miss. What worked in his maiden voyage with Willow was the notion that you were going to witness the repercussions of a tortured soul as she looked in the mirror, whereas this time we’re watching some poor sap get the snot beaten out of him, and I could honestly see the same thing in a number of other productions for a longer stretch of time (if you dig that sort of thing). I’ll await Mr. Swantek’s third production when it’s time, and hopefully it’ll pack more of a sustained punch than this quickie.

    • Panther Ridge
    2.5

    Summary

    Swantek’s sophomore directorial endeavor unfortunately isn’t much more than shock and torture-porn crammed into an abbreviated timeframe – been down this road more than a few times.
