Rosanna Arquette to topline 'Signs of Living'

Toronto -- Rosanna Arquette is to topline "The Signs of Living," a Canadian indie movie from Breakthrough Films and Television and producer/director Gail Harvey.

The news comes two years after veteran TV producer Breakthrough launched a movie production arm, with former PolyGram Filmed Entertainment and Norstar Filmed Entertainment executive Marina Cordoni in charge as executive producer.

Cordoni will shop the Arquette-starring drama at the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival with an eye to securing U.S. and European presales.

Breakthrough and Cordini last year produced two Canadian films, the mockumentary "Confessions of a Porn Addict," starring Spencer Rice ("Kenny vs. Spenny"), and Penelope Buitenhuis' "A Wake, »

Miguel Ferrer, Katharine Isabelle Embark on a Hard Ride to Hell

5 March 2010 8:09 AM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Devil-worshipping bikers? Blood sacrifices? Mysterious priests? Miguel Ferrer? All top notch ingredients for a classy horror title, if you ask me. Penelope Buitenhuis’s “Hard Ride to Hell” definitely sounds like my kind of movie, which means, of course, that the feature will be very campy, a little silly, and — fingers crossed — insanely bloody. Before making its demonic presence known on DVD this May, the film will debut on the horror-friendly cable network Spike TV, though a specific date has not been set as of this writing. Since watching modern television is akin to having someone jam their jagged toenails into your ocular cavities, there’s a very strong possibility that I’ll wait for the flick to arrive on DVD before checking it out. Commercials and I do not get along. There’s some stills after this handy synopsis, just in case you’re curious: A lonely stretch of »

Here's a synopsis: A lonely stretch of Texas desert highway leads a group of campers on a one-way ride to hell after witnessing an obscene blood sacrifice. Now, with a group of biking devil worshipers on their tail, they are pawns in an ancient battle between good and evil. Pursued to a decrepit old church in a ghost town, the »
