It’s New Year’s Eve, 1969, and lesbian lovers Brooke (Monk) and Rhea (Lahiri) are celebrating the occasion at a swinging party in La.

In the face of fellow Leicester Square-based festival and horror heavy hitter, Film4 Frightfest, GoreZone (or Gz, as the magazine has rebranded) would appear to be the underdog. Having experienced the festival first-hand, however, it’s pleasing to discover a level of intimacy and audience connection that is easily lost amongst the hustle and bustle of many larger profile fests, bolstered by »

It's a wrap! The Martin Gropius Bau is empty and the final pickups follow. This is a work in progress and readers are invited and welcome to contribute.

English language films are increasingly coming out of the major non English language territories but local product is impacting sales on Us films internationally. Business was quickly wrapped up but it was done with a healthy number of buys reported. Lower prices have become accepted but the market must have product as this event proved.

A title change has occurred for Lionsgate's new vampire-fest once known as Pearblossom. When the flick hits home later this year, its new title will be (the much better, yet still kind of generic) Life Blood.
The film stars Sophie Monk (The Hills Run Red), Scout Taylor-Compton (Rob Zombie's Halloween I & II), Patrick Renna (Dark Ride), Electra Avellan (Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino's Grindhouse), Danny Woodburn (Watchmen), and Charles Napier (The Silence Of The Lambs).
It's New Year's Eve, 1968: While driving on the Pearblossom Highway, a lesbian couple (played by Sophie Monk and Anya Lahiri) find themselves face to face with the creator of the universe (played by Victoria's Secret supermodel Angela Lindvall). Laid to rest for 40 years, the women wake up on New Year's Day as reborn creatures. Now, they walk the earth fighting in the eternal battle of good and evil, not always certain which side they are on. »

"A lesbian couple" meet their creator of the universe, sometimes known as God, who are summoned to fight the forces of evil, and sometimes the good (Bleiberg). The reviews that are available have labeled the film creative and with an intro' like that, the film must be something off the wall. An exact release date is not certain, but expect to see this one on DVD in 2010 (a prediction). Further details inside.
