Five Things you Didn’t Know about Ghost Wars

It seems like everywhere you turn these days, there is something about ghosts on one channel or another. However, Syfy has recently premiered a new show, “Ghost Wars,” that takes a little bit of a different path when it comes to telling these stories. First and foremost, it is important to recognize that while some of these stories were taken in part from personal accounts, a lot of it is fiction. However, that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t all make for a very good show. Written by Dennis Heaton and starring Vincent D’Onofrio, Kandyse McClure, Avan Jogia Meatloaf, this is

[Review] Careful What You Wish For

The real mystery is how Elizabeth Allen Rosenbaum‘s Careful What You Wish For got itself a theatrical release in the first place — no matter how limited. I’m not surprised Starz Digital is handling distribution, though, since it feels exactly like a late night pay cable ticket sanitized to an R-rating for lustful eroticism rather than actual chemistry, nudity, or plausibility. Sometimes thrillers of the “youthful stalker hits the sexual jackpot” variety can at least be entertaining in an ironic way, but that’s unfortunately not the case here. In fact, Chris Frisina‘s script is smart enough with its inevitable murder and ensuing insurance case to make us believe the film was produced with dramatic eyes and artistic hope. Alas, it ultimately falls short.

All the earmarks for this subgenre of trashy romance are present from the get-go. First you have the star: a Columbia-bound, engineering savant named

Film Review: Careful What You Wish For

If you've ever watched an “adult” movie, you know of the contrived situations, the cheesy soundtrack, and the gasping bodies. You'd laugh if a lowly movie critic complained of that movie's plot inconsistencies, its horrible acting, or the needless dialogue. So I won't blame you if you laugh while I tell you the many ways in which Nick Jonas's new film, the self-styled erotic thriller Careful What You Wish For, is not much more than glorified softcore. Which is to say that you may very well really enjoy seeing it. I certainly did.

The movie is a straight-up remake of the 1980s cult classic Body Heat, starring William Hurt and Kathleen Turner. Jonas, in all his heartthrob, beefcake glory, plays starry-eyed youth Doug (“Douggie”) Martin, who falls hard for an older woman, his neighbor's attractive wife Lena, played by the impossibly hot model Isabel Lucas. The neighbor, Elliot Harper

Globally Relevant Film Set in the Caribbean 'Moving Parts' Seeks Support Via Crowdfunding Campaign

"Moving Parts," a film by Trinidad-based, American director, Emilie Upczak, whose crowdfunding campaign has only 11 days to go, is a story about two women from two opposite corners of the world brought together through circumstances beyond their control. Although set in the Caribbean, the film is globally relevant as it focuses on the issue of human trafficking.

Moving Parts takes a fictional look at a very real issue”, Upczak said. “The film’s protagonist Zhenzhen, is a Chinese immigrant who is smuggled into Trinidad to be with her brother Wei following the death of their father. A tragic event leaves Zhenzhen vulnerable and only through the help of a neighboring art gallerist Evelyn and the restaurant’s Cook, does she have a chance at life”.

Emilie Upczak is a filmmaker and festival programmer specifically interested in ritual practice and sexual politics. These interests were first sparked after she spent two-years traveling throughout Southeast Asia, where she encountered numerous religious practices and worked as an escort in a hostess club in Tokyo. Since then, Emilie has produced short films and experimental video installations. Most recently, she was the Creative Director of the trinidad+tobago film festival in charge of the Caribbean Film Mart and Caribbean Film Database.

“We decided to crowd-fund the film in order to build our core audience and to engage individuals in our fundraising process,” she said. “We have been successful in engaging local government support and now we are turning to private sector and individuals”.

The film has been in development for two years and is now in the pre-production stage. Principal photography is set to begin in the Spring with a filming schedule of one month. One of the unique facets of the film is the female roster of most heads of departments. This line up includes, DoP Nancy Schreiber, Consulting Producer Annabelle Mullen, First Assistant Director Roma Zachemba, Co-Producers Rhonda Chan Soo and Rhian Vialva, Production Designer Shannon Alonzo and PR/Social Media Aurora Herrera.

Upczak noted, “I feel very strongly about having this film made by women and also by women primarily from the Caribbean.”

The cast includes Canadian actresses Valerie Tian known for her role as Su-Chin in "Juno" and Burns in "21 Jumpstreet" and Kandyse McClure known for her role as Officer Anastasia Dualla in "Battlestar Galactica."

You can support "Moving Pats" via its Kickstarter campaign https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/381237657/moving-parts?token=9ec81861
