Director: Josh C. Waller. Writers: Robert Beaucage, Kenny Gage and Josh C. Waller. Cast: Zoë Bell, Rachel Nichols, Tracie Thoms and Bruce Thomas. The female prison movies of the '60s and '70s focused on sexploitation. In these films, semi-naked shower scenes and brawls were plentiful. But, the filmmakers of Raze have chosen to alter this genre from the sexy to the blood-filled. In Raze, several characters partake in an all women fighting tournament, which lasts until there is only one survivor. Director Josh C. Waller and the writing team of Robert Beaucage and Kenny Gage have created a thrilling action focused tale, here. Dramatic elements and characterizations are relegated to a few scenes of dialogue and flashbacks. Instead of focusing exclusively on the characters and story, Raze deals with one woman's struggle out of bloodsport and her battle with psychopathic tournament directors. Raze's violent visual spectacle is »

Stars: Zoe Bell, Rachel Nichols, Doug Jones, Sherilyn Fenn, Adrienne Wilkinson, Tracie Thoms, Rebecca Marshall, Bailey Anne Borders, Rosario Dawson | Written by Robert Beaucage | Directed by Josh C. Waller
Produced by its star, stuntwoman turned actress Zoe Bell, Raze has seemingly been “coming soon” for an eternity. I distinctly remember first reading about it way back in 2011 and it’s only now, some three years later, that the film is finally seeing the light of day here in the UK. It’s been a long wait but it has Definitely been worth it!
Raze follows kickboxer Sabrina (Bell), who wakes up to find herself in an underground bunker. Soon she realizes that this bunker is actually a modern day coliseum of sorts, where, along with 48 other women, they are condemned to fight each other to the death. The game organizers, turn their kidnapping victims into violent femmes by threatening to »

Director: Josh C. Waller
Running time: 99 minutes
Advertised as having a large female cast, Raze was definitely a title to watch under the judgement of any feminist viewers. However, labelled under the ‘exploitation’ genre, with a narrative containing an extreme amount of violence, the film takes a turn into crazy, nearly-unbelievable town.
Beginning with a blacked-out screen, a message appears detailing how 350,000 American women go missing every year, and that a lot of them are never to be seen again. This then cuts away to a noisy bar scene, with a young couple (and our first female victim) flirting to their hearts’ content. However, when Jamie (Nichols) awakens in a darkened tunnel, and comes face-to-face with the solemn Sabrina, she soon realizes that her evening hadn’t gone completely to plan. Welcome to the coliseum, run »

Tracie Thoms made a splash on TV on Wednesday, but it wasn't for a new role. The actress and singer was the first celebrity to appear on Catfish seeking the help of Nev Schulman and Max Joseph. In case you missed it, here's what went down. Thoms, who is known for her roles in Rent—both on Broadway and on film— and Cold Case, had been in contact with a super fan by the name of Sammie. Sammie helped promote Thoms' projects and the two communicated via Twitter. As Thoms said in the episode, a fan like Sammie is a dream come true to spread the word about projects. But Thoms wasn't the only person Sammie was speaking to. She also befriended Thoms' producer friend Lotti Knowles and The Glee »
Social media is the backbone of every episode of MTV’s Catfish; however, last night’s episode focused solely on Twitter. And what a tale it was.

Who's ready for another season of exposed lies and lost faith in humanity? Everyone? Awesome, because the trailer for season three of Catfish is here, and we're dying. Nev Schulman and Max Joseph are back as the hosts who aid hopeless romantics in the quest for online love, and this season looks even more insane than the last two. Of course, there are the usual suspects - people who haven't seen their Internet boyfriends or girlfriends, those who have sent piles of money in the mail - but then there are the people claiming their online loves work for Kanye West. Also, is actress Tracie Thoms (The Devil Wears Prada) involved? This is getting weird. Take a look; the show starts up again on May 7. Get More: MTV Shows »

NBCUniversal’s E! said it would launch three new series and a set of specials as part of its new programming in the year ahead while it continued to focus on development as it casts about for a new hit franchise on the order of its various programs centered around the colorful Kardashian family.
The network, which the cabler’s parent has been seeking to turn into a more upscale venue since receiving the network as a result of its purchase by Comcast Corp. in 2011, is placing a bet on scripted fare – a significant maneuver for a network that has largely depended on reality series to stock much of its schedule.
“The Royals,” E’s first original scripted drama, is set to launch in early 2015. Starring Elizabeth Hurley, “The Royals” is produced by Lionsgate and will depict a set of members of a modern-day royal family as their lives are »
