"Lifeforce" - TV series in the works?

According to,  Beverly Hills-based Ringleader Studios (The Amityville Horror: The Lost Tapes) has acquired the rights to adapt Colin Wilson’s 1976 novel "The Space Vampires" for a television series.
The plot follows a group of astronauts who discover a derelict spaceship and return to Earth with three humanoid aliens, which turn out to be some sort of alien vampire creatures, that unleash a life-sucking plague upon humanity.
The intergalactic sci-fi tale previously got the feature film treatment in Tobe Hooper’s 1985 pic "Lifeforce", which starred Steve Railsback, Patrick Stewart, and Mathilda May. Ringleader is plotting a small-screen episodic series, also titled Lifeforce, as well as a graphic novel, video game, and additional media tie-ins.
The original film by Tobe Hooper was not well received upon its initial theatrical run, but later gained a cult following on home video. What with the current slew of vampire shows on TV, such as "True Blood" and "Vampire Diaries", Ringleader Studios are obviously looking to ape their success, without being too derivative, by injecting a different twist on the classic vampire story.
As a fan of the original movie, I shall be keeping an eye on the progress of this with some interest.
If you haven't seen the original film, checkout the trailer on YouTube.

Sam Ingraffia and Doug Burch discuss "Wages of Sin"

Sam Ingraffia has switched gears in recent years. The TV regular is now producing movies - and good ones of that. His latest is Wages of Sin, available on DVD and - shortly - VOD via Osiris Entertainment. Sam and his producing partner Doug Burch took time out of their busy schedules to speak to us about their thrilling new movie.

What a nailbiter. How long did Wages of Sin take to write, and how did the idea come about?

Sam  : It took about three weeks to write the first draft.  We then did a quick rewrite pass.  After that, we brought some actors to my house and had a reading; followed by another rewrite. We also made some tweaks during the shoot.

Doug :Sam and I both love the Coen brothers and Terrence Malick.  We wanted to make a thriller that had some elements of BADLANDS and BLOOD SIMPLE. A kidnapping plot line made it easy to have the film take place basically in one location, which kept the cost down, but still created tension.

You both come from acting/voice-over backgrounds. Why producing and filmmaking, now?
Sam : As an actor you have virtually no control over your career, or the projects in which you are cast.  With writing and producing, particularly with indie films, you have a tremendous amount of control.

Doug :  With our background as actors, coupled with the new technology, it’s now possible to make films inexpensively, that not only entertain but have something to say.  We set up our production company –LITTLE DOG PRODUCTIONS – to do just that.

Has Wages of Sin paved the way for other projects? opened doors?

Sam : So many people just talk about making films.  We’ve done it.  It’s still tough to get a film off the ground, but now we have a track record.  Agents, actors and directors will take our calls.

Doug: Now we have people sending us scripts.  We’re trying to broaden our scope and work with new people.

What are some of your favorite scary movies? Are you more impressed by a good classic Hitchcockian thriller, or do you enjoy some of the modern-day slasher flicks?

Sam : I definitely vote for Hitchcock.  Tough to top REAR WINDOW and NORTH BY NORTHWEST,

Doug : I go darker, with OLD BOY, MOTHER and BLOOD SIMPLE.

Now that Wages of Sin is out there…what's next?

Sam : We have two other features in development – EXTRACTION, a sci-fi thriller, and FROM THE EAST TO THE WEST, a family drama, set to be directed by Joel Zwick (MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING.)

Doug : We also have a new Internet series – MIDNIGHT MOVER.  Written by Gary Phillips, it combines graphic novel panels with live action.  DANNY, the central character, is an Afghan vet dealing with PTSD, as he tries to fit back into normal life.

Catch "Rabies" on the Horror Channel this December...

TV News (UK):  UK TV premiere for "RABIES", from "BIG BAD WOLVES" directors Ahron Keshales & Navat Papushado
Plus Horror Channel spreads a little evil on Christmas Day with the Network premiere of "CHRISTMAS EVIL" and there are network premieres for Bruce Campbell’s "MY NAME IS BRUCE" and Glenn McQuaid’s "I SELL THE DEAD".

Sat 28 Dec @ 22:50 – RABIES (2010)
In Israel’s first slasher movie, a runaway adult brother and sister stumble into a trap set by a psycho killer in. His sister buried in the ground, the injured brother sets out to get help. What he finds instead is a group of sex-mad teenagers, two sleazy policemen and a forest ranger and his dog. Making great use of collective expectations of where a body count movie is supposed to go, and then not going there, this is as much a fresh vision of fright as a nuanced social and political commentary on Israel today. A big hit at FrightFest, the directors, Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado, went on to make the hugely successful BIG BAD WOLVES and have succeeded in revitalising Israel’s horror film industry.

Wed 25 Dec @ 22:50 – CHRISTMAS EVIL (1980)
Widely recognized as the best of the Christmas horror efforts, Christmas Evil is the story of a toy-maker scarred as a boy when he learns that Santa is not real. Throughout his life, he tries to make the Christmas spirit a reality. He becomes obsessed with the behaviour of children and the quality of the toys he makes. When he is met with hypocrisy and cynicism, the resulting snap causes him to go on a yuletide killing spree

Fri 20 Dec @ 22:55 – MY NAME IS BRUCE (2007)
A comedy horror, directed, co-produced by and starring B-Movie cult actor Bruce Campbell, ‘My Name is Bruce’ is the heroic struggle of a small mining town in Oregon to rid itself of a vengeful monster. Guan-di (Jamie Peck), the Chinese god of war and protector of the dead, has been unleashed by cemetery desecrating teenagers to protect the graves of Chinese miners lost in a deadly cave-in of yesteryear.

Fri 27 Dec @ 22: 55 – I SELL THE DEAD (2008)
Director Glenn McQuaid’s brilliant homage to 60s Amicus anthologies and Hammer horror was a hit at Film4 FrightFest 18th century justice has finally caught up with two of the craftiest grave robbers in town. With only a few hours to go before his date with the guillotine, body snatcher Arthur Blake (LOST and LORD OF THE RINGS star Dominic Monaghan) tells his life story to Father Francis Duffy (HELLBOY’s Ron Perlman).

Forest Whittaker stars in "Repentance".

From Codeblack Films and the producers of FRUITVALE STATION. Years after a drunken car crash that almost took his life, Thomas Carter (Anthony Mackie) has reinvented himself as a therapist/spiritual advisor who advocates a synthesis of world religions and positivity.
He’s parlayed this vocation into a successful book release that one day draws the attention of Angel Sanchez (Forest Whitaker), a profoundly troubled man fixated on the “untimely” death of his mother.
When Carter takes on Sanchez as a personal client in an effort to raise funds for his indebted brother Ben (Mike Epps), things quickly take a turn for the worse. Angel needs much more than a simple life coach.
What may be simple to grasp for some is the idea that single actions in the past comprise tidal waves of reactions in the present.
Director Philippe Caland's REPENTANCE examines these issues against a backdrop of kidnapping and murder.

REPENTANCE will open in selected cinemas in the US on February 28, 2014. A UK release date has yet to be confirmed.

"Death Walks" wraps filming!

For those of you here that have been following the progress of the new zombie film "Death Walks" (which I have a brief role in as a zombie), you will be interested to hear that production has finally wrapped and the film has moved onto the editing stage.

Originally due to be shot over a period of 24 hours. Instead it was filmed from 15th of July to the 17th of November, but director Spencer Hawken claims the look is now better. The achievement for Death Walks is that it never cost a single penny to make, everything including insurance was given free of charge, or obtained on a contra basis.

"It's been a strange few months, first we shot a film for absolutely no cost thanks to the generosity of Romford's Mercury Mall, then we acquired a cast of legends in their own arena's, and finally a supporting cast and crew of almost 1000 who came back week after week for no cost to complete the task. During the process I was awarded funding for future projects, found work for many of our team, created a partnership with Lucinda Rhodes which already has two movies under it's belt, three in pre-production and two currently doing the rounds for funding."

Editing has now began on Death Walks, but no sooner has the film wrapped than the movie is about to become a franchise, Spencer is in serious talks to make Death Walks 2, and several of the cast are keen to reprise their roles. He promises the story will be a million light years from Death Walks "If you make a zombie movie, you have to be different, people will be both impressed and annoyed by Death Walks, but all will undoubtably agree there has NEVER been a movie like Death Walks, hence how I was able to bring current and legendary talent aboard."

Death Walks is due to complete editing in February in time for submission to the global festival circuit.

Spencer Hawken ad Lucinda Rhodes begin work on "No Reasons" next week, "Road Rage" in the Spring, and "Godfathers Of London" in the Summer.

Synapse to release "Reel Zombies" to US DVD

Independent underground filmmakers Mike Masters and David J. Francis (playing themselves) are eager to complete the third film in their ZOMBIE NIGHT film trilogy, a series of rather unsuccessful low-budget, shot-on-video gorefests. The problem, however, is a recent zombie apocalypse has taken over the world since their series began.  The dead are rising from their graves and eating the living… for real this time! Masters and Francis embark on the production of their newest masterpiece anyway, only to discover shooting in a post-apocalyptic world offers many unforeseen challenges.  Instead of giving up, they decide to capitalize on the cannibalistic catastrophe. No need for latex and fake blood when there’s an entire world of flesh eating undead to add realism to their film, and help save money on special effects costs!
Touching upon the real-life headaches of low-budget filmmaking, with numerous nods to the zombie film genre, REEL ZOMBIES is a satirical mockumentary feature that dives head-first into self-parody and “an improbable but inspiring lesson in filmcraft proving that passion and dedication can overcome all obstacles—even the ones that want to chomp your brain out!” (Simon Laperrière, Fantasia Film Festival).
The film is released to US DVD Feb 2014 from Synpase. Extras on the disc include deleted scenes, audio commentary track and a trailer.

"Suspiria" to get the Synapse treatment.

Synapse Films, Inc. has acquired the North American home-video rights to Dario Argento's 1977 classic horror film "SUSPIRIA", with an original soundtrack by European prog-rockers Goblin.
Described as “one of the scariest films of all time” by Entertainment Weekly, SUSPIRIA stars the beautiful Jessica Harper (Brian De Palma's PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE) as a young girl caught up in a coven of witches controlling a German dance academy, with a guest appearance by Udo Kier (BLADE, Andy Warhol's FRANKENSTEIN and DRACULA).

This is going to be an amazing project for us.”
Synapse Films, Inc. will work closely with Technicolor Rome and Technicolor Los Angeles to create an all-new high-definition 2K scan from the original negative for a possible 2014-15 video release. “It’s important to spend as much time as possible to create the definitive high-definition home video version for the fans,” May explains. “We’re going to take our time with this one.”
Synapse Films, Inc. is currently planning the extensive work on SUSPIRIA in conjunction with Technicolor, utilizing both their Rome and Hollywood facilities. The film scanning will be coordinated and supervised by Technicolor Hollywood’s Director of Restoration Services, Tom Burton, whose film restoration credits include Ridley Scott’s BLADE RUNNER, Georges Méliès’ A TRIP TO THE MOON, and Blake Edwards' BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S.

First stills released from "The Last Showing".

The makers of upcoming British chiller "The Last Showing", which stars cult horror actor Robert Englund (Nightmare On Elm Street) and rising stars Finn Jones (Game of Thrones) and Emily Berrington (The White Queen), have just released their first set of publicity stills from the feature (see below).
