This action-packed horror/comedy has come to DVD and is loaded with extras. “Ninjas vs Vampires” got a very solid review at Smash or Trash which you can find HERE and you can order this fun motion picture HERE.

A Little Bit Of Love

Lee Doll Film Productions is well into the latest episode of “Adventures of Louanna Lee” titled “A Little Bit of Love.” Penned by screenwriter Mitch Klein and lensed by Jeff Herberger, the story harkens back to the days of the “old mansion on a stormy night” murder mysteries written by Agatha Christie.

Teen detective Louanna Lee and her family get invited to a gala costume ball being held in a mansion. What should have been a wonderful evening on partying ends up in murder and theft. Can Louanna Lee solve the mystery before she too falls victim to the killer? This episode is being filmed in the Howard County Historical Museum in Ellicott City, MD. It boasts wonderful locations as well as great production values.

This episode stars Louanna Lee, Victoria Gottlieb, Leanna Chamish, George Stover, Sam Lukowski, Steve Rifkin, Jennifer Rouse, Les Bradley, Robert Long II, Mitch Klein, Erik Kristopher Myers, Bob Creager, Kelly Ann, Jason Patrick Presson, Dylan Hintz, Paul Sieber, and Wayne Shipley.

Director Kevin Kangas is fast becoming  one of the East Coast’s most prolific filmmakers. Since his surprise hit of HUNTING HUMANS, he has thrilled audiences with his FEAR OF CLOWNS series, and is at work on the second edit pass of his current film GARDEN OF HEDON.

BOUNTY premiered in 2009, and is coming to audiences in the Summer of 2011. Starring Tom Proctor, it is a story of a bounty hunter that has his own reality-type cop show on television. He and his men hunt down scumbags all around the country to bring them to justice. In the “current episode” that was being shot, the three bounty hunters were going after someone they suspected in being a serial killer. However, the reality they run into is far worst than even their most vivid nightmare. The last half an hour of this flick will leave you breathless as these men race against the clock to stop the horror that pursues them.

BOUNTY–it will premiere on Video On Demand beginning June 12th, 2011 through August 11th, 2011 on Time Warner Cable, Verizon, Charter, and Brighthouse. I highly recommend you check out this action thriller.
