Happy Thursday! For a minute there I almost typed “Wednesday,” but fortunately, this week, it’s actually a day ahead of what I think it is, not a day behind. Anyway, here’s the news of the day:
First, She Kills is finally finished, and you can get a limited-release version to take home this weekend! (If you miss it, don’t worry, it’ll be actually released next year, and will be on Amazon and iTunes later this year.) These copies, which will be available starting Sunday 4/24 at 7 p.m. EST and will ship sometime in May, were used to finance House Shark, which will wrap up production in August. I’ve got the synopsis, a trailer, and some links where you can get it:
“Sadie’s life is destroyed when a vicious gang called “The Touchers” targets her for their sadistic fantasies after witnessing her sexy but innocent naked frolicking in a nearby field. On her wedding night they attack her and her husband Edward, brutalizing both of them. But during the attack the virgin bride discovers a dangerous secret about her body – she is cursed with the legendary “Fire Crotch”, a condition where Satan has laid claim to her vagina. After visiting her fortune teller friend Casparella, a space exorcism is attempted on her meat flaps, but it only ends up unlocking secret hidden powers inside her. Her hatchet wound becomes lethal, her most deadly weapon in her thirst for revenge against The Touchers and her fight against lustful men everywhere!”
And now here’s something fun: all good horror fans are familiar with Stephen King’s Pet Sematary (even if you haven’t actually seen or read it, you’ve heard of it). Anyway, there’s actually a documentary called UNEARTHED & UNTOLD: The Path To Pet Sematary. Terror Films acquired it last year, and in honor of the film’s 27th anniversary, they’re releasing a trailer, poster, and a super-duper special one-time only limited promotion.
This documentary chronicles the journey of this very famous book from script to screen. Here’s more, including the details on the promotion:
The documentary promotional release will begin on April 27th and continue for 27 days, ending on May 18th. Then, you’ll have to wait for the documentary’s official release, which is currently set for October 2016.
During this limited time frame, fans will be able to order the Limited Edition Combo Pack, which will include a dual Region Free DVD/Blu-Ray copy of the documentary featuring interviews with Director Mary Lambert and the entire cast, including Dale Midkiff, Denise Crosby, Miko Hughes, Brad Greenquist, Susan Blommaert, the Berdahl Twins, and many more. The film also features never-before-seen footage from the sets in Maine, interviews with key crew, the town’s people and is packed full of bonus features, including a fan appreciation sizzle reel, a personal interview with the documentary filmmakers and much, much more.
The film, which was discovered by Terror Film’s exec Jim Klock at the Rhode Island Flickers’ Sci-Fi, Fantasy & Horror Film Festival in 2014, is an important release for the company, and they are not taking it lightly. Terror Films exec Joe Dain, who negotiated t he deal with the filmmakers stated, “We not only understand the relevance of our company’s association with this iconic film via this incredible documentary; more importantly we understand the obligation we have to the fans to make this release as special as possible.”
Filmmakers Campopiano and White stated: “When we first set out for Maine nearly six years ago we thought, at most, we would take some photographs of the filming locations from Stephen King’s Pet Sematary and post them to social media. But upon that very first visit we knew that we had stumbled upon something special — stories, people, and places that had been barely documented for the extensive, global horror fan community. We knew within that first year that we needed to go back to Maine and continue to dig, not just to satisfy our own curiosities but also to try and bring an in-depth making of story about Pet Sematary to others who also share a deep appreciation for the film. Terror Films has stepped up and showcased a similar love for Pet Sematary but, more importantly, the belief that the stories, people, and places we’ve documented have significance and ought to be shared with anyone who has an interest in Pet Sematary, Stephen King, the horror genre, or film in general.”
