Vine (Tobias Jelinek), a disillusioned demon, secretly lives with others of his kind in the world of humans sustained by their misery. Forced into a choice to save his brethren or an innocent human girl (Keely Aloña), the delicate balance between human and demon kind is threatened, which may result in war.

Fire City is… well, it’s hard to describe. It’s a mash of fantasy and horror so much to the point that I wouldn’t really be comfortable describing it as either. Story-wise, Fire City successfully builds its own little world and fills it with demons in a very short amount of time. As a viewer, I found it

Film Review: Psychological, Religious Edge to ‘The Possession of Michael King’

Chicago – The problem with most horror films is that they don’t understand what really scares us, and substitute bloody messes or the jack-in-the-box “boo!” instead of what really gets under our skins. “The Possession of Michael King” is a rare and special exception, taking demonic possession to broad depths of psychological and religious symbolism.

Rating: 4.5/5.0

The story of a non-believer who seeks to make a film about proof of demonic possession has a full laundry list for that genre – the odd movements, the voices, the killings, the Church, the “found” video footage and the weird zealots aiding the possessed along the way. What it does differently with the material is in the context circumstance of extreme emotional distress, to the point that it all could be psychosomatic – fiercely so, but possible in the way its presented. Writer/director David Jung creates an environment of dread, one that marries to

Danielle Chuchran Talks Fire City: The Interpreter of Signs

  • Dread Central
Fire City: Interpreter of Signs is an upcoming demon fantasy thriller set against the noir backdrop of a shadowy atmospheric world, where demons live among humans who are blind to what they really are.

The story follows Atum Vine, a 700-year-old demon with an attitude. To the humans who live unwittingly alongside him in a derelict tenement building, Vine is just the drug dealer at the end of the hall. But to the demons also living on the floor, Vine is a procurer of human misery, which they need to survive.

After Vine’s flow of addicts shuts off unexpectedly and apparently for no reason, Vine consults Cornelia, an interpreter of signs. She is a fortune teller in the demon world and an enigma even Vine can’t quite figure out.

We got a chance to catch up with Danielle Chuchran, the young actress who plays Cornelia, during our recent set visit for the film.

Trailer Premiere - Fire City: The Interpreter of Signs

The trailer for the directorial debut of Academy Award-winning special effects designer Tom Woodruff, Jr., a supernatural thriller called Fire City: The Interpreter of Signs, is finally here and the practical effects are nothing short of badass! Dig it!

Mary-Margaret Humes, Harry Shum Jr., Danielle Chuchran, Kristin Minter, Matt Winston, Eric Edwards, Tobias Jelinek, and Robert Peters star.

Shum plays an abusive alcoholic boyfriend who suddenly transforms into a caring and loving person, along with the rest of the humans in his seedy tenement building. Dependent on human misery for survival, the demons in the building begin to starve.

Set Visit Coverage: Brian Lubocki and Michael Hayes Talk Fire City: The Interpreter of Signs

  • Dread Central
We were lucky enough to get to play with demons on the set of Fire City: The Interpreter of Signs earlier this month while the complex “horror noir,” which is the brainchild of writer-producers Brian Lubocki and Michael Hayes, was shooting.

It’s directed by F/X master Tom Woodruff, Jr., and stars Tobias Jelinek as Vine the Demon, who must square off with an even eviler Demoness, Cornelia (played by Danielle "Dani" Chuchran).

We had a chance to talk with the actors plus the director and his two right-hand practical effects guys (his son, David Woodruff, and Academy Award winner Dave Elsey), but in this installment you'll hear from the originators of Fire City: The Interpreter of Signs, Lubocki and Hayes.

Dread Central: So… what’s the Fire City story in this film? It's based on your body of shorts and other works set in this world, correct?

  • Dread Central
Directed by Academy Award-winning special effects makeup artist Tom Woodruff, Jr., Fire City is a movie we’ve been watching very closely from its inception as a short film, during its successful Kickstarter campaign, and right on up to the filming on-set...

Which is where we got all kinds of exclusives on this “hellish fantasy,” which is set against the noir backdrop of Fire City -- where demons secretly live among humans.

When we caught up with lead actor Tobias Jelinek, he was in full-on demon garb as his character, Atum Vine. Right down to his pointy fangs!

Tobias Jelinek: Hi, let me take my teeth out... here.

Dread Central: The writer-producers Michael and Brian were telling me that they had seen 80 people for your role; you must feel really privileged to have been selected.

Tj: I am certainly thrilled. Just from the get go, when I read the description of this character,

Emmy Watch: Michael Cudlitz on being handcuffed in his underwear for 'Southland'

Between now and June 28, the deadline for Emmy voters to submit nomination ballots, EW.com will feature interviews with some of the actors and actresses whose names we hope to hear when nominations are announced on July 18.

On TNT’s Southland, Michael Cudlitz and an ensemble cast delivered some of the most consistently raw and lauded performances on television. And if nothing else, he’s proud that the show, which was canceled in May, leaves behind that legacy.

“Some shows just go away — and that’s fine. They serve their purpose and their entertainment value, but there are shows that
