Driving home from work past the cemetery each night and in spring, I always see the deer grazing amongst the tombstones. I have always wanted to capture this beautiful imagery of life thriving amidst the resting places of the dead. I’ve gotten photos before, but this weekend I got some of my best shots so far!
Check out the gallery below to see some of these photos I took!…
“Cleopatra Entertainment will release Santiago Fernandez Calvete’s horror film “A Taste of Blood” based on Aleksey Tolstoy’s 1839 short story “The Family of The Vourdalak”, on Blu-ray and Digital platforms this May.
The film, hot from an international film festival run, takes place in the uncertain hours after a vampire hunt when it’s unclear if the hunter himself has been turned into a creature of the night. Will his family find out in time, or will their sentiment make them easy prey for the novice nightwalker?
Releasing May 10, the film stars German Palacios, Tomas Carullo Lizzio, Naiara Awada, Lautaro Bettoni and Alfonsina Carrocio.”
“A father searching for his trafficked daughter finds a religious cult in Fortress of Sin, coming this June from Wild Eye Releasing.
Winner Best Feature Film at Vesuvius International Film Fest, Fortress of Sin is called “captivating” (Horror Geek Life) and “tackles a very real-world horror” (Wicked Horror).
Paul Chomicki (Slayer: The Replentless Killogy, Deadly Xmas, Paranormal Halloween), Katie Otten (Inner Worlds, Infinite Adventures), Avi K. Garg (The Shield, UFO Files), and Paul Guay (Liar, Liar, The Little Rascals) star in a Paul Chomicki and Christian Voss film, Fortress of Sin.
Digital and DVD coming this June from Wild Eye Releasing.”
Indie horror finds brother and sister, Jackson and Emma (Lewis Hines and Meredith Mohler) sent to a religious retreat by their new stepfather Hank (Christopher Moore). It’s run by a woman named Mary Esther (Jo-Ann Robinson) who may be more sinister than saintly. Now the siblings may have to fight for their very lives.
Flick is written and directed by Christopher Moore and is a well-intended horror. There are messages about the use of religion as a tool of oppression and an excuse to do evil in the name of good. It also comments on the treatment of homosexuals as Mary Esther thinks she can simply “cure” Jackson of his being gay. It’s a deranged woman using her religion to abuse and harm others under the delusion she is doing God’s work. The themes and messages are well meaning and do have impact, but it is an old and oft told story. As a horror, it’s a bit uninvolving and offers nothing new with its tale of someone using their highbrow morals to treat others horribly. Sadly, the film is also a bit slow moving and tedious despite having a lot to say. Even with only a 95-minute runtime, we find ourselves losing interest as this story of abuse in the name of morality plays out. There is the expected violent climax, and it ends exactly as we figured it would. Overall, the flick needed some real intensity and more emotional resonance to really make its messages be really felt and maybe a bit more innovation with a familiar story, too.
