In 'LX2048' humans from our not-too-distant future have resigned themselves to their homes, for it has become too dangerous to step outside. Unlike our present reality in 2020, it's not Covid19 that's keeping us locked up, it's something far more threatening. Fast forward another 28 years and the earth is at the mercy of toxic sunlight. Humans slip away from reality with the help of VR, but at what cost?

Today we got to speak with Guy Moshe, the writer and director of 'LX2048'. Check out our full interview below:

'LX2048' will be available on September 25th in theatres, digital, and VOD. The film stars James D’Arcy ('Cloud Atlas'), Anna Brewster ('Versailles'), and Delroy Lindo ('The Good Fight').

Synopsis:

In 2048, the sun has become too toxic to leave one's house in daytime and life as we know it exists mostly inside the virtual realm. Against this backdrop, a dying man fights for his family’s future while coping with what it means to be human...

Director and documentary filmmaker Scott Petersen sat down to talk to us at length about his newest project Hitchhiking to the Edge of Sanity. The doc follows a multi-continent journey of two friends in the early 1970s. Having traveled alone throughout a large portion of the globe myself, I can tell you that the experience is at once eye-opening, inspiring, and at times quite dangerous. Check out our interview below!

 

Hitchhiking to the Edge of Sanity is currently available on Amazon and will be coming to Tubi in the future.

 

Synopsis:

What started out as two young Kansas kids setting out to find themselves in late 1970, turned to disillusionment and danger. Photographer Ewert and writer Russell traveled across Europe experiencing the continent in Forrest Gump fashion — attending French President Charles De Gaulle’s memorial service at Notre Dame, meeting famed photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson, tooling around Paris with writer James Jones (”From Here To Eternity”) in his convertible, hanging out with Dutch anarchist weed purveyors in Amsterdam and rubbing elbows with American diplomats in Brussels. Along the way, their car was stolen — twice — and they were almost arrested in Amsterdam. If they were looking for experiences, Ewert and Russell certainly found them.

2020 is a horror show on all its own. So, what better way to alleviate the stress it is causing than by enjoying blood-soaked horror sprinkled with comedy? You can do that as soon as this Friday thanks to Hawk and Rev: Vampire Slayers, a film made by comedic actor, writer, and director Ryan Barton-Grimley. We spoke with Ryan about how this film came about and how it transitioned from something dark into something more lighthearted yet gory. 

Hawk and Rev will be having a virtual screening this week at Dances with Films LA. Click here to get your tickets!

Synopsis:

Philip “HAWK” Hawkins doesn’t just dream about killing vampires… He eats, sleeps, drinks and freakin’ breaths it. After getting kicked out of the Army for staking a fellow soldier with a blunt two by four, Hawk almost dies of boredom working as a night security guard at a deserted warehouse in his hometown of Santa Muerte, California… USA. Just when it looks like all Hawk’s options in life have expired, filthy blood-sucking vampires appear and of course… Nobody freakin’ believes him! With his back up against the wall, his sweaty Karate Kid headband tied on tight, real tight, and hordes of blood-thirsty vampires closing in, Hawk enlists the help of the one person who kind of believes him… Revson “REV” McCabe, a dimwitted, vegan-pacifist groundskeeper. Together they join forces to save the whole entire freakin’ world. Well… At least their hometown anyway. (feature – horror/comedy) Runtime: 84 minutes

Range Runners is a unique and exhilarating thriller that combines a woman's inner struggle with a drug-running plot taking place in a densely wooded area.

Watch List is one of those films that pulls no punches when it comes to realism. For some, that's a great thing, like when watching a period piece or war drama. However, when the true-to-life aspects of a movie revolve around something like Philippine's President Rodrigo Duterte's war on drugs, it hits the viewer with the equivalent to brass knuckles covered in razor blades and dripping with lemon juice. There's the impact, the bleeding, then the sting. 

This is not a bad thing by any stretch. It is, however, a challenge for an audience that may be in a comfort zone thanks to several paint-by-numbers crime dramas where there's always a silver lining, if not a happy ending. Coming away from this film, I was glad to have my expectations broken because the outcome reflected the very real situation these people have been facing for years. Alessandra de Rossi shines in the dual role of a loving mother and naive vigilante. 

The gray area of morality abounds in Watch List, showing off all the pros and cons of walking the edge between being morally right and criminally wrong at the same time.

I was fortunate enough to speak to the film's director, Ben Rekhi, in-depth about this film and the subsequential social contract that forms between a filmmaker and the audience. 

Watch List will have a virtual theatre release on August 21st and will be available via VOD on September 1st. 

Synopsis:

After her husband is mysteriously killed in the drug wars of the Philippines, a widowed mother of three must confront her own darkness to protect her children from further harm.

Gary Kent, one of the inspirations for Brad Pitt’s character in ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD, is profiled in director Joe O’Connell’s DANGER GOD. The famed filmmaker ‘loosely' based Pitt's stuntman character ‘Cliff Booth’ on Kent, and his own run in with the Manson Family at Spahn Ranch. Available on digital August 6 and on DVD September 17, DANGER GOD fixes on one of the legends of the game, Gary Kent. Though the king of B movies in the Sixties and Seventies, working for indie directors from Richard Rush to Ray Dennis Steckler to Al Adamson, Kent tackled even larger real-life challenges. Professional stuntman Gary Kent has made a hard-earned name for himself in over 50 years of falling, burning, jumping, fighting and breaking himself for some of the most cherished independent and B-movies of the 20th Century. This is his story, from the anything goes days of the drive-in era, including his run in with Charles Manson and his infamous family, to his personal battles and triumphs with health, alcoholism and love. Features interviews with Monte Hellman, Duane Eddy, Richard Rush, Marc Singer and more. DANGER GOD is available from Wild Eye Releasing on digital August 6 and on DVD September 17.

Succession's Zack Robidas sat down with us to talk about his role as Joel in the science fiction noir indie flick EMPATHY INC. As I mentioned in my interview the film's director, this movie threw me a curveball. What at first appeared to be a high-concept artsy film turned out to be a very concise and well-crafted story of greed and redemption. What was it like to play three different characters who were so vastly different from one another? Check out our interview with Zack!

Lew Temple (The Walking Dead) and Richard Riehle (Office Space) sat down to talk to us about the upcoming film Limbo. The movie, due out on August 4th, also stars Altered Carbon‘s James Purefoy and the great Veronica Cartwright of the legendary ALIEN. I got to sit face-to-face with Jame Purefoy on the set of Altered Carbon a couple of years ago, and to see him in more genre projects is a real joy. 

 

 

Limbo will be available on DVD and VOD come August 4th. 

Synopsis:

A murderer finds himself on trial in Hell, caught between a bitter prosecutor and an inexperienced defense attorney.

Lifetime films are a genre all on their own. They have certain longstanding tropes that have made them a staple of American television for decades. That's not to say Lifetime movies are stale. In fact, the actors help keep the formula fresh year after year. Such is the case with Michael DeVorzon as Vicent Black in the upcoming title Her Deadly Groom. We'd had previously spoken to Mr. DeVorzon in May about Fast & Fierce: Death Race. Though this new project isn't a high-octane action film, it does feature a surprising number of action scenes and a great appearance by Eric Roberts. Her Deadly Groom will premiere on July 26th, 2020 at 8 pm ET/PT on Lifetime. Synopsis” Recent divorcee Alison (Kate Watson) is nervous about jumping back into the dating pool. When her best friend sets her up on a dating site, Alison is matched with Vincent (Michael DeVorzon), a mysterious man who appears to be too good to be true…because he is. Will Alison uncover the truth about Vincent’s motives before it’s too late? #LifeTime #Thriller #LTM

I was sold on 'Devil's Revenge' the second I saw William Shatner wielding a shotgun on the poster. Not only that, but the story comes to us via 'Star Trek TNG' scribe Maurice Hurley. It's like a little 'Trek' reunion, except with a lot more violence and creepier creature effects. Good, bad, or otherwise there is no way I'd pass up the chance to watch Kirk team up with Seven of Nine herself, Jeri Ryan, to take on a bunch of satanic creatures in caves. When I say caves, I mean real caves. Director Jared Cohn had the cast and crew filming in various real-world locations underground in Kentucky. So, how did this story of a family cursed by the devil come about? What was it like working with the legendary Shatner? Find out in our interview below.

Part dinosaur, part man of God, the VelociPastor uses his curse to hunt down evildoers ... and ninjas. Yes, that is indeed the premise for Brendan Steere's feature film that I and Brad Jones recently reviewed (see below). Like something that you would have expected to be featured as a trailer in front of Grindhouse, VelociPastor is a curiosity. To find out more, I spoke with the Steere to figure out how all this came to be. #VelociPastor

Actor David Clennon sat down to speak with us about an interesting film called Welcome to the Men's Group. Clennon has seen his fair share of things as an actor, from Peter Sellers's last great role, to an intergalactic shape-shifting alien, but what about complexity of a man's psyche when he sequestered away with other men? Welcome to the Men's Group is a bit of an affirmation for men who find themselves stuck between the various social movements of the present, and the expectations set by traditional American values. The film, directed by Man Men's Joseph Culp, was quite an unexpected viewing venture for yours truly. When most cinematic representations of men imagine us as either dolts or heroes, it is easy to forget that many of us harbor a lot of hidden emotions, fears, desires, dreams, and pain. This film explores how those things affect males from various walks of life. Synopsis: Joseph Culp and Scott Ben-Yashar bring you a film that explores what happens in a men’s group when people are no longer willing to hide behind social conventions. Welcome to the Men’s Group is a comedy-drama that explores real-life issues that affect everyone (not just men). The modern male is under pressure like never before, and WTTMG explores how men deal, or don’t deal, with these issues, and how it effects their lives and families.
