‘Haunting of Crestview High’ DVD Review

25 December 2014 12:16 PM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Cameron Deane Stewart, Judd Nelson, Ben Browder, Amanda Alch, Marc Donato, Augie Duke, Roger Edwards, Ali Faulkner, Jeffrey Schmidt | Written by Matthew Spradlin, Barry Wernick | Directed by Matthew Spradlin

Originally conceived some eight years ago by Matthew Spradlin, Bad Kids Go To Hell (the movie’s original title) originally debuted as a four issue comic mini-series from Antarctic Press in 2009. Fast forward to 2014 and the film, now re-titled Haunting of Crestview High silently hits the UK market courtesy of 101 Films, without all the hype that surrounded the 2012 Us release – which may not actually be a bad thing.

Now don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed the film but I don’t think it ever lives up to the hype that surrounded its original Us release – which is maybe why the films UK debut took a couple of years – but as a fan of the John Hughes canon of films »

​Film Review: ‘The Song’

27 September 2014 8:02 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A well-crooned country tune can invest even the hoariest cliches with honest feeling, and in much the same fashion, “The Song” takes a familiar tale of love, marriage, betrayal and redemption, and delivers a largely satisfying rendition. One of the better Christian-themed independent productions to come along in a year that has seen the genre plummet to hitherto-uncharted levels of idiocy (“God’s Not Dead,” “Persecuted”), this moralistic yet lushly romantic melodrama — about a rising singer-songwriter struggling to hold onto his marriage in the face of worldly temptations — boasts enough in the way of persuasive acting and stirring music to play like an emotionally involving love story rather than a rote pro-monogamy lecture. With word-of-mouth support, a marketable soundtrack and a “Duck Dynasty” endorsement, it should make solid commercial inroads with targeted churchgoers.

Richard Ramsey’s feature writing-directing debut is somewhat misleadingly billed as “the sexiest faith-based movie” ever, which »

Magnolia Pictures will take thriller The Two Faces Of January starring Viggo Mortensen, Kirsten Dunst and Oscar Isaac to an initial half-dozen locations in the wake of its VOD release late last month and CBS Films is targeting the same number of runs for its Cannes ’14 feature Pride. Factory 25 is opening its art meets goth-rap thriller Hellaware and Cinema Libre will debut a former Swiss foreign-language Oscar contender The Little Bedroom in exclusive New York runs.

Faith-based ‘The Song’ Gets U.S. Distribution

22 May 2014 6:13 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Looking to appeal to faith-based audiences, Samuel Goldwyn Films has acquired U.S. rights to City on a Hill Studio’s music-driven love story “The Song.”

The film stars Alan Powell of the group Anthem Lights, Caitlin Nicol-Thomas (“Nashville”) and Ali Faulkner (“Twilight”). Samuel Goldwyn Films will release the film on Sept. 26.

Richard Ramsey directed from his own script, a modern-day adaptation of the life and writings of Solomon, as found in the Song of Solomon and Ecclesiastes.

Powell portrays a singer-songwriter who struggles to catch a break and escape the long shadow of his father, a country music legend. He falls in love with a vineyard owner’s daughter (Faulkner) and writes a hit song, but his life and marriage begin to fall apart when he gets involved with another performer, played by Nicol-Thomas.

Faith-based films are performing well at the U.S. box office; recent successes include Sony »

‘Butcher Boys’ Review

23 March 2014 11:23 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Ali Faulkner, Johnny Walter, Derek Lee Nixon, Tory Tompkins, Gregory Kelly, Phillip Wolf, Jon Clinkenbeard, Katie Patterson | Written by Kim Henkel | Directed by Duane Graves, Justin Meeks

Kim Henkel, writer of the classic horror The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and writer/director of its third sequel, Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation (although the less said about that the better), returns to the horror genre with Butcher Boys, his first feature in almost twenty years.

In 1729 Jonathan Swift published A Modest Proposal, a satirical tome in which he suggested Ireland offer up their children as food, using cannibalism as a metaphor for the exploitation of the poor by the rich. Well jump to 2014 and Butcher Boys takes this metaphorical concept and turns it into filmic terror as a birthday celebration at an upscale restaurant sets in motion events that bring a group of friends face to face with the macabre »
