'The Forming' Trailer from Horror Director Evan Jacobs
Following the successful DVD release from Cinema Epoch of Evan Jacobs' Dv trilogy, the low-fi filmmaker is back with another microbudget horror fest called The Forming and, to hear Jacobs' tell it, it is the start of a new trilogy. While not a continuation of the Dv Trilogy, Jacobs says the films are somewhat connected. In addition to this he feels that The Forming is both challenging and accessible. He hopes to continue this theme throughout this new trilogy.

Evan Jacobs ' low-fi odyssey Dv has been picked up for worldwide distribution by Burbank, CA based distributor Cinema Epoch. In order to increase the viewing experience, Cinema Epoch plans to offer this title on DVD in what they call "Terror-Depth 3D."

States Cinema Epoch owner, Gregory Hatanaka.
