‘Midnight Texas’ Finale: Boss Talks Switching Up That Sexy Ending and Cueing the Danger Up for Season 2

‘Midnight Texas’ Finale: Boss Talks Switching Up That Sexy Ending and Cueing the Danger Up for Season 2
[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from “The Virgin Sacrifice,” the season finale of “Midnight, Texas.”]

In a surprisingly romantic season finale, “Midnight, Texas” took a significant departure from the books it’s based on by moving one love scene back behind closed doors. On the show, a demon wants to mate with Fiji (Parisa Fitz-Henley) because she’s a powerful virgin witch. Her plan is to go through with it but kill the demon in the act, since she’s accidentally killed someone once before when she was in the throes of passion. Her love interest Bobo (Dylan Bruce) has other ideas though, and realizes that if he sleeps with her, she will no longer be a virgin. Therefore, the budding couple move to the next level of intimacy while a war between good and evil is waged outside.

In the novels by Charlaine Harris that inspired the series, Fiji’s plan plays out more dramatically and in a far ickier way. She makes the

‘Hunter Gatherer’ Exclusive Clip: Andre Royo Tries to Get Back on His Feet in Josh Locy’s Feature Debut — Watch
After spending three years in prison, Ashley Douglas (played by “The Wire” alum Andre Royo) returns to his old neighborhood hoping to pick up his life right where he left off. However, he soon finds that there is little waiting for him out there. His girlfriend Linda and even his own family have moved on and forgotten about his existence. That’s where “Hunter Gatherer” picks up, and from there, it takes some inventive and unique turns.

For the main character in his feature debut, writer/director Joshua Locy drew inspiration from the story of a close friend named Eddie, “an optimistic, hopeful, inspiring man whose life before I met him had been full of obstacles and hard times and struggles and small victories. I wanted to make a film that combined my love and respect for Eddie with a small, anecdotal love story. I hoped that the simplicity and

First Trailer for SXSW Best Actor Winner Indie Film 'Hunter Gatherer'

"And where did your voyage take you to today, my Lord?" The Orchard has released a full theatrical trailer for an indie film titled Hunter Gatherer, the feature debut of Josh Locy, which won the Best Actor Jury Prize at the SXSW Film Festival. Andre Royo (who won the SXSW award) stars as Ashley, a middle-aged man who emerges from a 3-year stint in prison, with a great amount of optimism and hope. He heads home to learn that girlfriend and family have completely forgotten about him. Also starring George Sample III, Kellee Stewart and Ashley Wilkerson; and executive produced by David Gordon Green. It's described as a "bittersweet, darkly comic tale of seeking out one's destiny — but discovering an unexpected fate along the way." This looks like it might be an underrated gem, worth checking out for the performances at least. Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Joshua Locy's Hunter Gatherer,

Trailer for David Gordon Green-Produced SXSW Winner ‘Hunter Gatherer’

After his career-defining role in The Wire, Andre Royo‘s output has yet to slow down in front of the camera. His latest role, in Josh Locy‘s feature debut Hunter Gatherer, earned him a Best Actor award at South by Southwest Film Festival earlier this year, and it will arrive in theaters next week. Ahead of the debut, the first trailer has now debuted.

Executive produced by David Gordon Green, Variety said in their review it’s “a highly eccentric, funny-sad tale of friendship and failure that occupies a curious space between inner-city realism and almost childlike myth.” That certainly comes across in this trailer, which has a strong mix of comedy and drama, with a powerful-looking performance from Royo. Also starring George Sample III, Kellee Stewart and Ashley Wilkerson, check out the trailer below.

Ashley Douglas thinks everything should fall into place when he’s released after three years in prison.

‘Hunter Gatherer’ Trailer: Andre Royo is Making a Very Unexpected Living in SXSW Winner — Watch
Ashley Douglas is just making a living. Recently released from prison after three years, the one-time ex-con, played by “The Wire” favorite Andre Royo, is back on the streets and hopeful that his life is finally going to fall back into place. Despite his very best intentions — and a scrappy can-do attitude — that’s not exactly what happens in Josh Locy’s feature directorial debut.

Royo, who picked up a Special Jury Award for his performance at this year’s SXSW Film Festival, where the film made its bow, goes all out as the luckless Ashley, who emerges back into the “real world” to find that very little has waited for him, including his beloved girlfriend Linda. As Ashley sets out to make his way in a time and place he no longer recognizes, he takes up with a compelling loner named Jeremy (George Sample III), and the duo pull

SXSW Film Review: ‘Hunter Gatherer’

SXSW Film Review: ‘Hunter Gatherer’
An ex-con’s attempt to take back control of his life doesn’t lead down any of the gritty roads you’d expect in “Hunter Gatherer,” a highly eccentric, funny-sad tale of friendship and failure that occupies a curious space between inner-city realism and almost childlike myth. Deliberately steering clear of the usual gangland drugs-and-violence cliches, Josh Locy’s writing-directing debut features a welcome starring role for Andre Royo (“The Wire”), whose performance as a wily hustler trying to stay one step ahead of possible ruin sets the tone for this odd, occasionally mystifying but undeniably singular and imaginative work. The attachment of David Gordon Green, Jody Hill and Danny McBride (three of 14 credited exec producers) should improve the film’s otherwise lean commercial prospects.

We never learn why Ashley Douglas (Royo) was sent to prison, or for how long, and Locy’s disinclination to spell out the presumably unpleasant
