MALICE

SYNOPSIS: MALICE concerns the Turner family’s supernatural adventures in their late Grandma’s home.

And when people start disappearing, Alice–the sixteen year-old with an active imagination–must go down the “rabbit hole” and rescue them all.

“Another update on BEYOND THE WALL OF FEAR: I got back to editing on the “Curse of Pelican Bay” segment featuring Jackey Neyman Jones of MANOS: THE HANDS OF FATE. I was excited to edit in scenes of Tom Griffith, who played the sheriff in two of my favorite Don Dohler movies, THE ALIEN FACTOR and NIGHTBEAST. Really happy with how this segment turned out. And do you know what? I also have genre legend George Stover in the film – THE man of Don Dohler and John Waters films! STOKED!

I also got a rough cut of the “Crazed” segment together. I threw together a page of the latest preview pics for both segments here:

Back when I started offering the ODD NOGGINS dvds, I put together a page of “Odd Packs,” combination of the movie, artwork, props, etc. just to make things interesting…and odd. Well one of the Odd Packs was “DINNER WITH MR. BIRCH,” where a short film would be made about someone having a dinner date with the oddball character from ODD NOGGINS, and would be posted online for all to see. Well, someone bought it and a couple of weekends ago I shot a very odd, very fun little short. I have it all put together save for a couple of effect shots, and will be posting it sometime in March, so stay tuned for details!

Ballet of Blood poster ainsley simple new font NEW TAG LAURELS lrg

Ballet of Blood now available On Demand, DVD and VHS!

Ballet of Blood is now available to rent or own. You can also find the DVD on Amazon and if you’re lucky you’ll be able to snag a VHS tape off eBay. There are many different ways to add this rare piece of beautifully horrifying cinema to your collection, today. The motion picture won Audience Choice Award at the 2015 RIP International Horror Film Festival. It was also nominated for Best Acting Ensemble and Best Editing.

Synopsis: After years of emotional abuse and body shaming, two ballerina’s drug-fueled fantasy, of viciously attacking their ballet school, becomes reality. Meanwhile, a nerdy ballerina starts writing a novel based on the events that transpired, deeply offending some for turning such sensitive material into a book, for young audiences. Soon, her and her sister realize every word being typed is somehow altering real life. Will this strange and psychedelic paralleling fantasy carry the sisters, along with anyone else, to a merciless blood-splattered doom?

The film stars Sydney Ray, Jessica Knopf, Laura Amelia, Julia Faye West, Mindy Robinson, Walter Hochbrueckner – among many others.

Produced by Julia Faye West, Sydney Raye, Vera R. Taylor, Walter Hochbrueckner, John Gonatos, Mikko Tervonen, Michael Anthony and Bouvier. Production design by Mystic Marlow. Art Direction by Ryan Henneman. Sound by Jean-Paul Inesta, stills by Mark Rakocy, script editing by H. Raven Rose. Written and directed by Jared Masters.

Dead Hunt 2008

Do you like behind the scenes photos from movies? Well over on facebook over 300 never before seen photos have been uploaded, giving the viewer a look behind the curtain of DEAD HUNT. This was the last horror thriller that Timewarp Films did before the untimely death of filmmaker Don Dohler in 2006.  The photos give a great account of a small Baltimore-based cast and crew putting together a professional suspense film. You can check out the pictures HERE, and you can buy this great film HERE!

 

The monsters are running amuck and terrorizing Alice!  Phil Cook and Eagle Films have done a great job with episode 8 of MALICE, and it can be found – in full – at this link HERE.

Don Dohler

Smash or Trash Independent Filmmaking would like to wish our dear friend – indie filmmaker Don Dohler – a happy 66th birthday.  We miss you Don, and wish you could be here in person to celebrate it.

From Smash or Trash creator Robert Long: “I probably will stay in the independent movie biz, as well as doing the show and the site. I am taking a couple of months off from it all, and will get back to it in January of 2012. Part of it is to get healthy, the other is I have other obligations (see the painting above) and such that need to be addressed. There will be some changes though. I only want to focus on the site, the show, and my indie projects. In order to get the time that means I have had to cut off working on other people’s projects. There is more to say but there is work to do. Email me if you would like details. Thank you for your continued interest and support.”
