NEWS: Upcoming Thriller, THE ICE CREAM TRUCK, Releases Details, Poster


The Ice Cream Truck, writer/director Megan Freels Johnston’s highly anticipated follow up to her debut feature, Rebound, has secured distribution for a 2017 release.  

The thought-provoking psychological thriller stars Deanna Russo (Being Human, Gossip Girl) as Mary, who moves back to her suburban hometown after her husband gets relocated for work.  As her family ties up loose ends back home, she moves into their new house alone.

And although the move makes Mary nostalgic for her youth, there’s something very sinister about that Ice Cream Truck that patrols her suburb.  Killing.

“As a long time lover of the horror genre, I have always found that there was a point of view missing. There aren't enough horror films by women, for women and about women,” explained Freels Johnston when discussing the film.  “My films are about what's scary inside and outside the female psyche and the fine line that often separates the divide.”

Storytelling is very much in Freels Johnston’s DNA.  The granddaughter of legendary crime writer Elmore Leonard, The Ice Cream Truck screenplay was a semi-finalist in the Circus Road Screenplay competition.

As a producer developing material for over a decade, Freels Johnston worked on adaptations of her grandfather's work and produced Sparks, the directorial debut of Joseph Gordon-Levitt.  After completing a project for the USA Network, she decided to follow her passion and write and direct her own material. Her first film, 2014’s micro budget thriller Rebound, developed a cult following on VOD, was called, “Almost David Lynchian in its strangeness” by Film Threat and Rue Morgue said, the film "(was) worth watching to the end for the unnervingly realistic twist ending."

The Ice Cream Truck also stars John Redlinger (Nashville, Banshee), Emil Johnsen (Isolerad), Hilary Barraford (United States of Tara), Jeff Daniel Phillips (Westworld, The Lords of Salem) and Lisa Ann Walter (The Odd Couple, Curb Your Enthusiasm).

my top 13 "Final Girls".... #5

What's a 'Final Girl' you might ask? She's the last woman standing at the end of a horror film. Usually the one who defeats the killer. In this list, I'll give you my top 13 'Final Girls' in horror of all time. Without furtur ado....

#5: Alice Hardy from 'Friday the 13th' played by Adrienne King
Betsy Palmer singled out the counslers of Crystal Lake for her revenge, but didn't expect Alice to make her lose her head. She, sadly, didn't make it past part 2.... but she'll always be remembered fondly.

5 Serial Killer Movies You May Have Not Yet Seen (and Should) #5 Some Guy Who Kills People (2011)

There's no secret that some of our favorite horror movies deal with those creepy bastards that stalk us and want to do unspeakably horrible things to us. From 'Psycho' to 'Hannibal' they have endeared us with their quirkiness, style, and finesse. With glorious one liners and clever kills, they are a fascination both in fiction and reality. Hell, how do think the Creepercast got its name? Speaking of how we got our name, two of the films on this list helped make Creepercast great and connected us with amazing film makers and actors we now call friends. So, without further pontificating, here are 5 serial killer films we believe deserve your attention a little more than the rest...

Some Guy Who Kills People (2011)


A formal mental patient's repressed anger reaches the boiling point, leading him to embark on a mission of revenge against the thugs who once subjected him to severe physical and mental trauma.



Jack Perez (director) and Ryan Levin (writer) present a kill your bullies masterpiece starring Kevin Corrigan, Barry Bostwick, and the late Karen Black. The title 'Some Guy Who Kills People' is by “design.” There is this amazing juxtaposition between literal and metaphorical killing at work that is both exhilarating and cathartic. Ken Boyd is “Every-Guy-Who-Has-Survived-Childhood-Prosecution-But-Not-Without-Several-Years-of-Therapy” because he represents geeks, nerds, and outcasts who can feel for, nay, identify with the mentality that lead to Ken murdering these bullies on the page. But is he responsible for the literal killings going on around town? CLICK HERE to read a full review, and HERE for the Barry Bostwick interview!

Random Reviews (A LovesDragons Momentary Review): Killer Mermaid (2014)


I started watching this movie and didn’t have high expectations. It turned out not to be so bad! Two women go to the Mediterranean on vacation to meet a friend. During the sightseeing they stumble upon a woman in a well they assume needs to be rescued.   Every time they let you hear her “man” call it reminded me of the X-Files. Hmmmm, anyway, it wasn’t as cheesy as I would have thought. The views are spectacular and you come out wanting to visit this place!

Progressive Metal Band ONI Signs with Blacklight Media/Metal Blade Records - New Album "Ironshore" Out November 25, 2016


Progressive Metal Band ONI Signs with Blacklight Media/Metal Blade Records - New Album "Ironshore" Out November 25, 2016
 
Featuring the New Single "Eternal Recurrence" | Pre-Orders Available Soon
 
Performing at KNOTFEST this Sunday, featuring a Special Guest Appearance by Randy Blythe of LAMB OF GOD
 
+ Catch ONI on "Max & Iggor Cavalera Return To Roots"
& Children of Bodom "I Worship Chaos" Tours this Fall/Winter

As heavy metal devotees may have noticed of late, rising progressive metal band ONI have been gearing up for something big. Today, the band is pleased to reveal the news of their recent signing with Blacklight Media/Metal Blade Records. The label will unleash ONI's highly-anticipated progressive metal opus, Ironshore, on Black Friday, November 25, 2016.  Pre-orders will become available in early October.
 
Blacklight Media is a new label launched this past February by Chris Santos, executive chef and managing partner of the New York City restaurants VANDAL, The Stanton Social and Beauty & Essex, in partnership with Metal Blade Records CEO/founder Brian Slagel. Santos states, "One of the things that I think will make Blacklight Media a label to watch for years to come is the diversity of our roster. ONI is our first crushingly heavy signing that matches their heaviness with incredible progressive precision and classically brutal breakdowns. I'm very excited to have them as part of the Blacklight Media family!"
 
Vocalist Jake Oni adds, "We are excited to announce our signing with Blacklight Media/Metal Blade Records. It is an honor to be on the same roster as so many amazing bands. With the support of this legendary label at our side, the world is ours!"
 
Featuring the already-buzzing single "Eternal Recurrence", an uncompromising anthem that upon release gave metal fans an early look at ONI's undeniable technical talent, Ironshore takes listeners on an absorbing ride that provides ample opportunity for head-banging, singing along and deep introspection. Watch the official music video for the track here.
 
Formed in 2014, the initial vision for ONI was, "to be the band I never got to see", explains Jake Oni. With their influences rooted in progressive metal, ONI's sound can be compared to the genre's heavy hitters - The Human Abstract, Protest The Hero and Between The Buried And Me - yet they remain truly unique. With Jake Oni handling vocal duties, Martin Andres and Brandon White on guitar, Chase Bryant on bass and Joe Greulich on drums, they are also perhaps the first metal band to feature a Xylo-synth player, in the form of Johnny D, which adds an intriguing dynamic to the nine tracks found on Ironshore.
 
ONI has now set their sights on conquering the music world, one show at a time. After their upcoming performance at this year's Knotfest (which will feature a special guest appearance by LAMB OF GOD vocalist Randy Blythe during their 11:55am-12:25pm set on the Nuclear Blast stage), the band will join up with Max & Iggor Cavalera's Return To Roots tour and perform on select dates through October 21. Following that tour, ONI will join the I Worship Chaos Tour line-up, beginning November 23 and featuring headliners Children of Bodom and fellow special guests Abbath and Exmortus (the latter of which they will perform five off dates with prior).

Beckinsale Rumor May Confirm Return of Blade!




With the news of a new Kate Beckinsale movie Underwold: Blood Wars where fans speculated there would be a crossover between the two vampire fighters. Beckinsale is currently at New York Comic Con and was asked about the rumour while attending a Lakeshore Entertainment Panel Q&A. When asked will there be a crossover with Blade she replied. “No. We had that idea. No. They’re busy. They’re doing something with Blade.”

 While this is far from confirming what Marvel are thinking of doing with the cool dude, be it a TV series for Netflix or a movie, we now can say they will be doing something. Whether it will be Snipes in the vampire slashing role or another rapper remains to seen. We're hoping for 50 Cent ourselves.

AUSTRALIA’S MONSTER FEST ANNOUNCES FIRST WAVE OF FEATURE FILM TITLES



Australia’s premier genre film festival Monster Fest returns to Melbourne for its 6th edition Nov 24-27, 2016 – and they’ve just rolled out their first slate of official selections.

Following on announcements that the official Opening Film will be Julia Ducournau’s controversial RAW, with Jim Hosking’s THE GREASY STRANGLER as Closing Film and keynote speaker Ted Kotcheff presenting retrospective screenings of his films WAKE IN FRIGHT, FIRST BLOOD, WEEKEND AT BERNIE’S and a new HD master of cult TV rarity SPLIT IMAGE, Monster Fest is pleased to announce its first wave of new feature film titles, including FREE FIRE, the latest from visionary director Ben Wheatley; TROLL HUNTER director André Øvredal’s long-awaited English language debut THE AUTOPSY OF JANE DOE; the new digital restoration of Andrzej Żuławski’s sci-fi epic ON THE SILVER GLOBE; Jesse Moss’ (THE OVERNIGHTERS) newest acclaimed documentary THE BANDIT - about the legendary friendship between Burt Reynolds and stuntman-turned-director Hal Needham - and much more. Brief descriptions of each film follow below.
“Monster Fest has come a long way since its inception in 2011,” says Festival Director Kier-La Janisse. “Originally conceived as a platform for showcasing Monster Pictures’ own titles, it has since evolved into its own beast, and continues to grow each year into the kind of diverse and inclusive genre festival that we see as key to fueling support for genre film production and exhibition in this country. It’s a place for us to come together with both independent filmmakers and our colleagues in the distribution landscape to share the most exciting, challenging and acclaimed genre titles emerging each year - ranging from horror and sci-fi to documentary, animation, crime and even westerns. We wanted to create an event that could be the Australian equivalent of major genre fests like Fantasia, Sitges and Fantastic Fest – and I think we’ve made huge strides in that direction.”

my top 13 "Final Girls".... #6

What's a 'Final Girl' you might ask? She's the last woman standing at the end of a horror film. Usually the one who defeats the killer. In this list, I'll give you my top 13 'Final Girls' in horror of all time. Without furtur ado....

#6: Cherry Darling from 'Planet Terror' played by Rose McGowan
Rose McGowan may not have made it through the first 'Scream' film, but she made it through 'Planet Terror' coming out the other side better than ever. This is an example of the next level of 'Final Girl'. She may not be the most badass woman on the list, but she's close.




my very brief thoughts on.... 'The Gingerdead Man'


As with all of my reviews of films for The Creepercast, I fully recommend that you check each and every one of them out. I am one man and this is my opinion. I've seen plenty of movies that received reviews that were the complete opposite of how I saw the film. These writers, directors, producers and actors all put a lot of time and love into these projects. They deserve to be seen and appreciated for what they are. Everyone has a dream and I fully support the people that take the time to make theirs a reality. With that being said....

In my college days, I spent a lot of misspent hours watching a lot of Full Moon feature films. Back then, it was done while sitting around with a bunch of guys on the dorm floor, late at night and watching a b-grade movie. It's fun. However, when you're 42 years old, alone and watching one of these features, it's not nearly the same experience. What's kind of ironic about it is that nothing has changed with any of these films, since 1994. Same pacing, same music, same horrible acting and scripts. I'm sad to say that I had the misfortune of sitting through 'The Gingerdead Man' tonight and I'm not even sure that if I had my dorm floor guys, if this would have been any more watchable.


It tells the story of a man, played by Gary Busey, who murders a family in a diner. 2 years later he's put to death, only to be resurrected by some blood mixed in with some gingerbread dough. From there, things get very boring, as he attempts to kill everyone that ends up in the bakery. He only succeeds with 3 of them and 1 of those 3 is only because he's possessed by The Gingerdead Man and shoved into an industrial oven. Shortly after he's burning alive, one of the main characters says, "There's nothing we could have done." Really? Nothing except shoving him into the oven? That's the quality of movie we're dealing with.

Charles Band hasn't grown as a film maker and it shows. 'The Gingerdead Man' could have just as easily have been made in 1994, as it was in 2005. It's not something I would ever recommend and I'm sorry to say that they made 3 additional sequels. I can barely even give it 1 out of 5 stars. Sadly, I don't even think Gary Busey knew what he was getting into, when he signed on to make this movie. Let alone, what in the hell was going on. Just watch the opening 7 minutes or so of the movie and you'll get the overall idea of how the entire movie will go. Pure and utter garbage.



If you want to see a better b-grade masterpiece, check out: 'Thankskilling', 'Poultrygeist' or any of the 'Toxic Avenger' films.

5 Serial Killer Movies You May Have Not Yet Seen (and Should) #4 The Last Heist (2016)

There's no secret that some of our favorite horror movies deal with those creepy bastards that stalk us and want to do unspeakably horrible things to us. From 'Psycho' to 'Hannibal' they have endeared us with their quirkiness, style, and finesse. With glorious one liners and clever kills, they are a fascination both in fiction and reality.

Speaking of how we got our name, two of the films on this list helped make Creepercast great and connected us with amazing film makers and actors we now call friends. So, without further pontificating, here are 5 serial killer films we believe deserve your attention a little more than the rest...

The Last Heist (2016)



A vicious serial killer targets armed thieves inside a bank while police surround the building.



Written and directed by Mike Mendez, The Last Heist is a crime/serial killer mish-mash with Henry Rollins in the cold blooded killer role. Rollins has been a tour de force in independent films recently. With 'He Is Not Dead' and now this one, he's proven he can be the lead, kick ass, and still be the most humble bad ass Hollywood has ever met. Now, finally, we get to see Rollins turns on the creep as a serial killer that just happens to be visiting the same closing bank our rag tag outfit of robbers has picked to for the big heist. The title takes on a double meaning as the action and blood commences.

IFC FILMS Presents: King Cobra - Official Trailer In Theaters & On Demand October 21




Based on a stranger-than-fiction true story, King Cobra is a deliciously dark, twisted plunge into the behind-the-scenes world of the pornography industry. It's 2006, YouTube is in its infancy, and internet porn is still behind a paywall. Taking the stage name Brent Corrigan, a fresh-faced, wannabe adult video performer (Garrett Clayton) is molded into a star by Stephen (Christian Slater), a closeted gay porn mogul who runs the skin flick empire Cobra Video from his seemingly ordinary suburban home. But as Brent's rise and demands for more money put him at odds with his boss, he also attracts the attention of a rival producer (James Franco) and his unstable lover (Keegan Allen) who will stop at nothing to squash Cobra Video and steal its number one star. Co-starring Alicia Silverstone and Molly Ringwald, King Cobra is part delirious, tabloid-shocker satire, part American tragedy.

HENRY: PORTRAIT OF A SERIAL KILLER


THE FILM THAT REWROTE THE RULES ON CINEMATIC VIOLENCE RETURNS IN THEATERS ACROSS THE COUNTRY FOR A 30TH ANNIVERSARY
THEATRICAL RERELEASE IN A 4K RESTORATION


HENRY: PORTRAIT OF A SERIAL KILLER
The Acclaimed Thriller, Starring Michael Rooker of 'The Walking Dead,' Will Receive a Red-Carpet Premiere Followed by Release in 20 Cities Beginning October 21, 2016



It was a true game-changer, a film so upsetting in its blunt depiction of an amoral murderer that it made the slasher films of its time look like cartoons by comparison.  HENRY: PORTRAIT OF A SERIAL KILLER became a lightning rod in heated debates about cinema and censorship but has only grown in stature since its first showing in 1986. Now, on the 30th anniversary of its momentous debut, it returns in a 4K restoration rerelease nationwide via Dark Sky Films, with major theatrical engagements to begin on October 21, 2016.

The film will come "home" on October 14, 2016, as Dark Sky partners with the Chicago International Film Festival for a large-scale event including a festival red-carpet premiere and a Q&A with star Michael Rooker and director John McNaughton in attendance.

HENRY: PORTRAIT OF A SERIAL KILLER is a chilling profile of a cold-blooded killer that, 30 years after its historic festival premiere, has lost none of its power to shock. The film, loosely based on a true story, has been hailed as one of the most disturbing and terrifying examinations of mass murderers ever filmed. Henry (Michael Rooker, The Walking Dead) is a psychopathic drifter who has coldly murdered a number of people for no particular reason and without any remorse. Leaving bodies in his wake, Henry makes his way to Chicago, where his he settles into the run-down apartment of his drug-dealing former prison friend and occasional roommate Otis (Tom Towles).

Also moving into the space is Otis's younger sister Becky (Tracy Arnold), who is fleeing her abusive husband. As she fends off her brother's incestuous advances, Becky finds herself attracted to Henry - unaware that he, along with Otis, are continuing their murderous rampage.

Director John McNaughton completed the film in 1986, and it was shown at that year's Chicago International Film Festival. But it wasn't until 1990 that a U.S. distributor was brave enough to give it a wide release. Henry predates the NC-17 rating and received its predecessor, the X rating, on three separate occasions. As a result of it and related issues with Almodovar's "Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down," Phillip Kaufman's "Henry & June" and Peter Greenaway's "the Cook, the Thief, His Wife and Her Lover," the MPAA created the NC-17 as its replacement on 9/26/1990. Henry's current rating is "X (Surrendered)" though a renewed rating is pending.  The film's violence, and the clinical, detached portrayal of Henry by the unforgettable Michael Rooker, originally earned it the MPAA's highly restrictive NC-17 rating.

The response from both critics and the public was as visceral as the film itself, and it went on to gain praise as one of the most compelling and disturbing films of modern cinema.

In celebration of its 30th anniversary, HENRY: PORTRAIT OF A SERIAL KILLER returns with a thrilling, cinematic presentation that cements its reputation as one of the most harrowing and original American films of all time. Dark Sky Films, a division of MPI Media Group, proudly presents it in a brand-new 4K scan and restoration from the 16mm original camera negatives, and featuring a new 5.1 audio mix from the stereo 35mm mag reels, all approved by director John McNaughton.

HENRY opens in New York on October 21, McNaughton will attend the film's New York premiere, at the Landmark Sunshine Cinema and on October 28, McNaughton will present it at the Laemmle NoHo in Los Angeles. 


A whole new generation of filmgoers will be introduced to HENRY with an amazing new transfer that puts the film firmly back into the vanguard of contemporary cinematic horror. Daniel M. Kimmel of Variety wrote, "[T]his is a movie that will anger and frighten audiences ... Many will also find this one of the most impressive film debuts of the '80s."

my top 13 "Final Girls".... #7

What's a 'Final Girl' you might ask? She's the last woman standing at the end of a horror film. Usually the one who defeats the killer. In this list, I'll give you my top 13 'Final Girls' in horror of all time. Without furtur ado....

#7: Kristen Parker from 'A Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors' and 'A Nightmare On Elm Street 4: The Dream Master' played by Patricia Arquette and Tuesday Knight
Another example of the "Final Girl" being played by two different actresses. Kristen is one of the most beloved heroines to face off against Freddy Krueger. She started out as a troubled teen and ended up making trouble for the villan we all love to hate.




my thoughts on.... 'I Am Not A Serial Killer'


As with all of my reviews of films for The Creepercast, I fully recommend that you check each and every one of them out. I am one man and this is my opinion. I've seen plenty of movies that received reviews that were the complete opposite of how I saw the film. These writers, directors, producers and actors all put a lot of time and love into these projects. They deserve to be seen and appreciated for what they are. Everyone has a dream and I fully support the people that take the time to make theirs a reality. With that being said....

How often do you see a film that makes you stop and wonder what in the heck is going on? Then, as your mind is reeling from the confusion, you realize how rare it is that you see a movie that is unlike anything you've ever seen before? It's a rarity in this day and age, to see something completely new. 'I Am Not A Serial Killer' turned out to be like nothing I've seen before. I went into the film with no idea what to expect, but with the name, I had a certain preconceived notion of what it might be about. However, before you decide to watch this movie, please stay away from any trailers, plot summaries or any other reviews but mine. I'm still not sure how I'm even going to write about it, without the use of any spoilers.


The film opens with a murder scene. We're quickly introduced to our protagonist, John. Now John is a little “off” and you get a clear sense of that from the very beginning. He works in a morgue with his mother. His sister is a police officer and his dad is non-existent. We soon learn that there is a serial killer on the loose, but what we're not sure of is if it's John or someone else? John is diagnosed as a sociopath, seems to have murderous tendencies, but somehow he still comes off as a nice guy. As more bodies begin to pile up, the pieces of the puzzle sort of start falling into place. At this point, I have to stop. For the remaining second and third acts of the film, you just need to watch how it unfolds. To give away any more than this, is to do a disservice to the film and the film maker.

Directed by Billy O'Brien, who is also known for the quite effective little film, 'Isolation'. Also, written by Mr. O'Brien, as well as Christopher Hyde and based on the novel 'I Am Not A Serial Killer' by Dan Wells. This one is hard to categorize into any one genre. It has horror/ thriller elements to it. It's also dabbling in the serial killer genre, but has some very romantic overtones to it. There's a few other things thrown in for good measure, but somehow it all ties together in the end and works wonderfully. Is it a perfect film? No. But what it lacks in perfection, it makes up for in overall originality and heart. John is a very interesting and well drawn out character, who lights up the screen. Played by Max Records, he brings some wonderful things to the table and plays off of Christopher Lloyd quite well. That alone, is worth the price of admission.


Of all the weird, offbeat movies you might come across, over the next few months, I would definitely recommend 'I Am Not A Serial Killer' to anyone who wants something unique. A solid 4 out of 5 star film, that only suffers from a few FX issues and a couple of loose ends that need tightening. It's also got some fairly gory scenes in the morgue, that if you've got a weak stomach.... may be a bit too much. Recommend for the adventurous types who are into the recent 'Deathwave' movement, but are just starting to get there feet wet. For all you know, maybe I am a serial killer?



If you like this kind of weirdness, check out: 'John Dies At The End', 'Spring' or 'Horns'.

5 Serial Killer Movies You May Have Not Yet Seen (and Should) #3 I Saw The Devil (2010)

There's no secret that some of our favorite horror movies deal with those creepy bastards that stalk us and want to do unspeakably horrible things to us. From 'Psycho' to 'Hannibal' they have endeared us with their quirkiness, style, and finesse. With glorious one liners and clever kills, they are a fascination both in fiction and reality. Hell, how do think the Creepercast got its name? Speaking of how we got our name, two of the films on this list helped make Creepercast great and connected us with amazing film makers and actors we now call friends. So, without further pontificating, here are 5 serial killer films we believe deserve your attention a little more than the rest...

I Saw The Devil (2010)



On a dark road, a taxi driver comes across a scared female motorist stranded in a broken-down vehicle. He pulls over -- but not to help her. When the woman's head is discovered in a local river, her devastated fiancé, a trained secret agent, becomes obsessed with hunting down her killer. Once he finds him, things get twisted. After brutally beating the murderer, Kim lets him go free, and a demented game of cat and mouse begins.



A tale of murder and revenge from Korean genre master KIM Jee-woon. Oldboy's CHOI Min-sik as our serial killer and Lee Byung-hun who has continued to have martial arts fame. There are several aspects of this film that place it above all others. The most important being the blurred line between revenge and torture for the fun of it making the hero appear a lot like the killer. The other important element is the behind the scenes life of a serial killer and the fringe culture they may have if they did co-habitate, swap stories, and give each other tips and tricks to better their killing experiences. I dare you to not switch sides often while watching!
