Frightfest 2015 Podcasts: #21 – Goddess of Love

Jon Knautz, director of past FrightFest favourites Jack Brooks Monster Slayer and The Shrine, now invites you to feel the horrendous pain of heartbreak. Enter into a baroque vortex of madness when an emotionally unstable stripper is shattered after being dumped by her boyfriend. Brian was the love of Venus’ life and the thought of him having an affair with another woman begins her volatile descent into the dark side of psychosexual insanity. Co-writer Alexis Kendra plays Venus with startling insight in an erotic thriller that’s sexy and shocking in the super-stylish tradition of Brian De Palma and Roman Polanski.

Nerdly writer and host of the Britflicks podcast, Stuart Wright, speaks to the writer/director Jon Knautz about Goddess of Love, which has its World Premiere at Frightfest 2015 on Monday 31st August at 6.45pm in Discovery Screen 1.

This Goddess of Love is Borne Below: A Film Review

*full disclosure: an online screener of this film was provided by Dalia Films Production. Tagline: "Be careful who you get close to." Director: Jon Knautz. Writers: Alexis Kendra and Jon Knautz. Cast: Alexis Kendra, Woody Naismith, Elizabeth Sandy and Monda Scott. Goddess of Love is a bit of misnomer. The film's protagonist, Venus (Alexis Kendra), is more of a black widow or a female preying mantis. She bites the heads off of those she loves, figuratively. This film, from Canadian director Jon Knautz (The Shrine), is a very fascinating look at a delusional character. She appears normal and average at first, but her mask comes off at a prominent transition point. Here, the film changes from an erotic thriller into more of a psychological one. The transition is jarring and from here on out the film is a bumpy ride. The steep ups and downs come from the protagonist, whose own perceptions cannot be trusted.

DVD Review: Thor – Hammer of the Gods

Thor: Hammer Of The Gods

Stars: Zachery Ty Bryan, Mac Brandt, Daz Crawford, Alexis Peters | Written by Steve Bevilacqua, Rafael Jordan | Directed by Todor Chapkanov

Vikings always seem to interest film makers, we’ve had the classic Kirk Douglas movie, we’ve even had the comic Erik the Viking, and we’ve had the 3D “spectacle” that was Beowulf. Now that we have moved into super hero territory with the most recent Thor film we’ll also get the smaller lower budget versions that don’t try to make Thor an alien but the God that he was in the original legends.

In Thor: Hammer of the Gods Thor is in fact a human character who along with a small group of other Vikings including his brothers invades an island looking for riches. All they find though is a group of people who are being terrorised by creatures that could

DVD Review - Thor: The Hammer of the Gods (2009)

Thor: The Hammer of the Gods, 2009.

Directed by Todor Chapkanov.

Starring Zachery Ty Bryan, Mac Brandt, Alexis Peters, Melissa Osborne and Daz Crawford.

Synopsis:

Thor (Zachery Ty Bryan) and his companions venture on a quest for the Hammer of the Gods - a mighty weapon that can save an island terrorised by wild beasts.

Whenever a big screen adaptation of a comic book or myth/legend (or sometimes both) comes out, you can be sure that following closely in its shadow will be the low / no-budget version. Hot on the heels of last year’s Marvel movie Thor (directed by Kenneth Branagh) comes the release of this made for TV special. The plot lines are different in fairness but the timing of this release is most certainly trying to make use of its bigger budget cousin.

Thor (Zachery Ty Bryan) is travelling with his brethren to a mysterious island,

Event Report: Screamfest La 2011: Exclusive Photos from Nights #7 and #8; Coverage of the Premieres of Enter Nowhere, No Rest for the Wicked, The Little Mermaid, Infected, and More

Coverage of this year's Screamfest La Film Festival continues with Dread Central's event report for Thursday, October 20th, and Friday, October 21st, when we hit the carpet to bring you more photos and caught the premieres of Jack Heller’s feature film Enter Nowhere (Night #7) and of Ryan Schifrin’s No Rest for the Wicked, The Little Mermaid, Infected, and more. (Night #8).

(Editor's Note: In case you're wondering what happened to Night #6, the filmmakers of Livid, the major premiere of that evening, were not in attendance so we opted to give SeanD. a night off of coverage as well. Considering that he's practically been living at the Manns Chinese 6 during Screamfest La's 2011 run, we'd say he certainly deserved it!)

Those walking the black carpet on the 20th and in attendance for the seventh evening of the fest included Enter Nowhere director Heller, writers Shawn Christensen and Jason Dolan, producers Dallas Sonnier and Robert Crippen,
