In TULPA, Gerini plays Lisa Boeri, a respectable and upwardly mobile businesswoman who by night, frequents the notorious sex club ‘Tulpa’ in search of dangerous forms of pleasure. When her lovers start getting murdered in horrible ways, she tries to deal with it herself with truly nightmare consequences.

It’s based on a story by genre veteran Dardano Sacchetti, with a screenplay by Giacomo Gensini and Federico Zampaglione. It is produced by IDF, Giovanni Emidi and Silvia Natill.

Leprechaun films to be remade????

Some timely news for St Patrick's Day, the Filmofillia website are reporting that Lionsgate films are looking at rebooting the "Leprechaun" franchise ("What the bloody hell for"? I hear you cry).

The original film came out in 1993, starring diminutive actor Warwick Davis (Wicket the Ewok from Star Wars) in the title role, which also marked Jennifer Aniston's screen debut. With a budget of just $900,000, it went on to gross almost $9million, and was extremely popular on VHS, selling over 10,000 units in the US alone.

Five sequels followed, in which Davis also starred, some of which also featuring various well known B-movie and TV actors, including "Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2's" Caroline Williams, "Blade - The Series" Kirk 'Sticky Fingaz' Jones and even rapper Ice-T and saw the Leprechaun terrorising various locations, including Las Vegas, a black neighbourhood and even outer space.

The last film, "Back to Tha Hood" came out in 2003, but now it seems that the current rights holders, Lions Gate Films, are looking at rebooting the Franchise and are going to be making 2 films back to back, though there's no script as of yet, nor has it been announced as to who will play the Leprechaun this time.

Lionsgate are hoping to have the first of the 2 films out by 2013, so stay tuned.

Strippers Vs Werewolves - out in May

Coming to UK cinemas. At the Silvadollaz strip club, a stripper named Justice performs a private lap dance for Mickey, a man who violates the no-touching policy ... by sprouting fangs and claws and trying to eat her!  Justice panics and takes the only option open to her, she drives a silver fountain pen through Mickey's eye, into his brain, killing him instantly. Oops!

Jeanette, the clubs owner, believes murdering customers is bad for business, so she orders the clubs bouncer to quietly dispose of the body. There the matter should end ... if Mickey hadn't been a member of a bloodthirsty and vengeful pack of werewolves.

When Mickey's corpse surfaces, Jack Ferris, the werewolves charming and vicious leader, swears bloody vengeance and sends his pack out to hunt down the killers. Little does he know, Justice is actually the fiance of his second in command, Scott.  To make matters worse, Justice bites Scott during sex and now may be infected with the curse of lycanthropy herself.

Add to the mix werewolf Barker, the masturbating man-child; Sinclair, the occultist with low self-esteem; a bevy of the most beautiful women this side of heaven and you have the perfect recipe for balls to the wall, skimpily clad, strippers on werewolves action-packed goodness.
