Exciting! Tristan Risk is stepping behind the camera to direct her very first short film, and we gotta say, it looks absolutely charming - in a horror sort of way. Parlour Tricks, as its titled, will playfully jump between morbid spiritual horror and belly grasping comedy. Just from our initial impression (review to follow soon), its a successful mash up reminiscent of both The Addams Family and Evil Dead. Keep an eye for news on the festival run schedule, but in the mean time, peep the official presser below.Read More

Russell Geoffrey Banks (Ghost House) is delivering the kind of crazy Nicholas Cage and Christian Bale would be proud of in Richie Moore's disturbing, WHO'S WATCHING OLIVER, a film about loneliness, love, and utterly losing your shit.

Our favorite cat-cock wearing sociopath is finally making his way to the US thanks to Wild Eye Releasing, under the very subtle, "RAW AND EXTREME" label. Though we suppose if any film were going to fit under the description of either word, Cat Sick Blues would be it, I guess. Anyway, June 26th is the official release date for this darkly humorous tale. And because we aren't assholes, we've provided a link to do so just below this babbling text. For those who wish to see the film in all it's high definition glory, you still have the option of the original VOD release from Monster Pictures (also linked). If you've yet to see this gem-of-a-film, then do yourself a favor and click the fucking buy button now, then thank us afterwards. Horror, as you probably know, is continually shat upon thanks to the perception that it's entirely devoid of originality. If you're of the mindset that it is, then understand that this - I PROMISE YOU - is about as original as the genre gets.
Cat Sick Blues stars the large-mouthed charismatic Matthew C. Vaughan as Ted, and the ultra talented Shian Denovan (Sawney, Don't Look at Me) as the grieving Claire Ellis. The film is directed by Dave Jackson (who's currently got some more sick shit stewing in pre-production)

Hex Studios Drops Epic First Trailer For Gothic Thriller 'Automata'
Hot on the heels of their black and white Noir The Black Gloves, director Lawrie Brewster and writer Sarah Daly are back with another slice of Gothic horror.
Automata, the fifth feature from the duo, is a lavish affair with a vibrant colour palette that harks back to the giallos of Argento and Bava. The film tells the story of an antiques expert sent to authenticate a three-hundred-year-old clockwork doll with a notorious history, the 'Infernal Princess'. He soon comes under its corrupting influence, and, along with his stepdaughter Rose, finds himself the target of dark forces beyond his control...
The film stars Hex Studios' regulars Jamie Scott Gordon (The Black Gloves, Bonejangles) and Alexandra Nicole Hulme (Lord Of Tears, The Black Gloves), alongside Erich Redman (The Danish Girl, Woman In Gold), Jonathan Hansler (The Devil's Business) and rising star Victoria Lucie (Dartmoor Killing).
According to director Lawrie Brewster, “Automata is a wild, Gothic thrill-ride inspired by the decadence of Ken Russell's Gothic, as well as the sensual expressionism of Argento's Suspiria and Bava's Black Sabbath. It's by far the most ambitious film we've produced, with a truly epic story that switches between the 1700s and the present day to reveal the truth behind the curse of the 'Infernal Princess'.”
Writer Sarah Daly alludes to the film's edgy themes; “The film explores how someone's idea of love can be perverted by experience, and how that corruption can echo through the ages. It goes to some very dark places, basically!”
The filmmakers have just launched a Kickstarter campaign offering pre-orders of the film, plush toys of their now infamous Owlman, credits, and other goodies to fund the post-production of the film.

Automata is an international co-production between Hex Studios and long-time partners Dark Dunes Productions, in association with Needle's Eye Productions, and Executive Producers Nick Ford, Greg Orsi and Richard Pate. The film is set for release in December 2018.
Automata is a Gothic thriller, filled with spine-tingling twists and gut-wrenching dread that will linger with you for years to come. Our supernatural tale pits a lonely widower and his stepdaughter against a foe like no other, a three-hundred-year-old, life-size clockwork doll, known as 'The Infernal Princess.'Read More
