News You Can Use!



Our favorite genre festival on the left coast, Bleedfest, is back at it. This time, along with their short film offerings, they're set to premier the documentary I Am Nancy, the labor of love of one Mrs. Heather Langenkamp. Along with the film's director Arlene Marechal, she will not only be there to screen the film but to also sign and sell limited edition copies of it.

Also on hand will be Lucky McKee to talk about his controversial feature The Woman. I've been anxious to check this one out after learning about the notorious receptions it's received (click here if you're not familiar). He'll be available to answer questions about the film which will be released in theaters this fall.

The event is taking place on Sunday, June 11th. For more information about the event, including a full festival line-up, click over yonder: http://bleedfest.com/schedule/

Last year, I had the honor and privilege of presenting two indie horror films at the Crypticon horror convention in Seattle. I had a blast and I wish I had the time to make it out there this year.

But I've remained in touch with the festival's director and this year is poised to be even bigger and badder than last! If you're in the Seattle area this weekend, check it out. A guaranteed good time.

Last but not least: I know I've been pimping this film forever and a day but it's worth mentioning again. I'll talk about it until I'm blue in the face people. Each and every one of you needs to check this film out. For every bitch, moan and gripe that has been thrown in the direction of our beloved genre the past few years, a film is being released this June that is the perfect antidote to all that is stale, boring, remade and rehashed. That film is called Dawning and it's a film I'm inclined to stake my reputation on. Yes, it's that amazing. As my friend Mike said over at All Things Horror 'If someone were to tell me they didn’t like Dawning, I’d immediately think less of them as a person.' I couldn't have said it better myself.

You can pre-order the film through the distributors website now. Information contained herein: http://www.shop.breakingglasspictures.com/Dawning-853937002674.htm

It will also be available for rent via VOD and other channels. If you're not inclined to takes risks on your film purchases and would rather rent, more info about specific channels is forthcoming.
