Stelio Savante & Autumn Withers in Trailer for Indie Drama 'Avalanche'

"How many more secrets do you have?" "Oodles." The Willoughby Movie Company has debuted the first official trailer for a relationship drama titled Avalanche, from writer & director Todd L. Green. The film is about a librarian, his wife, and her lover who become trapped in a house together and are forced to navigate the fallout of their indiscretions. Starring Stelio Savante, Autumn Withers, and Gideon Emery in the three lead roles. There seems to be some intriguing things going on, involving cameras and setups just to catch the other person. This has a very low budget look and sound, and it feels like a stage play more than cinema, but it should still be a fun film to watch. As long as you can laugh at this kind of relationship humor. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Todd L. Green's Avalanche, direct from YouTube: Avalanche tells the story

‘Rapid Eye Movement’ First Trailer & Images Released

The teaser Trailer for ‘Rapid Eye Movement‘ has been released, and it sure is a doozie.

The film began shooting in New York all the way back in November of 2015, and the first teaser trailer is finally here.

The film was shot almost exclusively in Times Square, and the filmmakers were given unprecedented access to the famous landmark. They were even allowed to construct a custom-built sound booth for shooting of the film.

New York Times bestselling artist John Stanisci is teaming with Emmy Award-winning producer Jared Safier and veteran actor and producer Stelio Savante to help his upcoming sci-fi graphic novel LifeDeath find a home as a series and to explore its development as a feature.

The ‘afterlife matrix’ is an ancient computer program, an uploading device to preserve human consciousness. After many millennia, that matrix grew to sentience and now, like anything that lives, the afterlife matrix is dying.

Deke Renner, an elite Martian soldier, is slowly going insane. His mind is being torn apart by his memories of a past life where he was Lucet, a Jewish 14 year-old female resistance fighter in World War II.

Poster and trailer for ‘Expendables of Horror’ ensemble Death House

A poster and trailer have arrived online for Harrison Smith’s ‘Expendables of Horror’ ensemble Death House, which features a host of genre favourites; check them out here…

The Death House is the Area 51 of Evil… a subterranean government facility that holds humanity’s worst on nine levels. Hell, Dante’s ninth level, holds the Five Evils… the “dark stars” of Death House. These individuals are so heinous they can never walk among society again. They may also be supernatural.

Agents Toria Boon and Jae Novak have their own dark pasts, arriving at Death House to tour its levels and observe its denizens first-hand as well as the medical and mental experiments of Drs. Eileen Fletcher and Karen Redmane. Their depraved experiments date back to the Nazi doctors of WWII.

Prison cells are virtual reality holo decks that recreate prisoner environments before they were incarcerated. A special hallucinogenic gas keeps inmates under control.
