Writer/director Lou Simon has made quite a name for herself in the horror community within what is, at least in cinematic terms, a very short space of time. Her 2012 feature HazMat sold in record time and her last film, Agoraphobia – starring horror icon Tony Todd and Sharknado’s Cassie Scerbo – recieved decent (if mixed) reviews. Not one to rest of her laurels, Simon returns to the genre, not only writing and directing but also producing survival horror All Girls Weekend.
Taking charge of your career can be a blessing and a curse for filmmakers. On the one hand, having total control of your film as writer, director and producer allows you to bring your vision wholly to the screen without falling foul of other people’s opinions. But on the other hand… »

The first poster for the upcoming paranormal horror slasher The 6th Friend has released, and it's tight!
You can check out a larger version of the poster below the details as well as the film's official trailer.
In this slasher film with a paranormal twist, six college best friends throw their own private graduation party when the stoner of the group orders in a psychedelic from her drug dealer, who sticks around to join in their fun. Drugged and disoriented, the girls’ special night quickly becomes a dark, foggy nightmare of blood and violence. Five years later, the girls gather together once again in hopes of rekindling that close friendship that they once had, »
I often like watching Indie movies because they are the breeding grounds for more imaginative work. Even though they often have a lower budget they often have more freedom to make a statement or touch on subjects that Hollywood haven’t caught up on. Face of Evil takes a look at the state of the world and more importantly the effects of Ptsd on soldiers, and with the current climate (and Trump’s idiotic statements) this is very topical.
When Jay (Scott Baxter) returns from service he finds it hard to settle in, especially with the current state of his home. During a party for his friends turn on him, apparently being changed into zombies by an exotic flu. Fighting for his life, he »

Let’s Be Evil, 2016
Co-written and directed by Martin Owen
A vision of augmented reality.
Martin Owen co-writes and directs this very slick sci-fi horror which plays on the idea of augmented reality and the failing education of American youth. While the two may not seen connected, Let’s Be Evil seamlessly ties them together, and creates a mostly good, taut and tight experience. Desperate to pay her mother’s medical bills, Jenny (Elizabeth Morris, who also co-wrote the script) gets a job with a super secret company looking after kids in the middle of an augmented reality learning facility below ground. The kids don’t say much, but they’re all smarter than your average bear. However not is all as it seems, and this reality may be less real than initially thought.

When we are first introduced to the luckless protagonists of All Girls Weekend, in an overly lit scene full of expository soap opera dialogue, set in a generic movie house, the kind that is too tidy to believe people actually live there, with framed posters of the director's previous films hanging on the walls behind the actors, I did not think that I was in store for a good, or even competently made movie. But, as cliché as it might be for me to write, All Girls Weekend gets better as it goes along, and once the characters become lost in the woods, and the dreadfulness of the situation they are in becomes apparent, it becomes an effective, »
All Girls Weekend, 2016.
Written and Directed by Lou Simon.
High school friends reunite after many years to spend a weekend in the mountains, but when everything goes wrong, there is no time for girl bonding.
It’s impossible not to be misled by the appearance All Girls Weekend presents us with. The title suggests a sex-comedy romp, possibly set by a lake or in a Las Vegas hotel; this is not the case. The poster, showing the back of a scantily-clad woman holding the severed head of another gal, brings to mind the kind of trashy slasher movie that was so popular in the 1980s; close, but no cigar. The performances and plotting are reminiscent of adult movies that actually have stories; but don’t think that the lack of gratuitous nudity or sex scenes makes the »
