Bonfire Films to Adapt Stephen King's "Suffer the Little Children"

JUNE 22, 2015
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


ACTRESS ATTACHED FOR STEPHEN KING “SUFFER THE LITTLE CHILDREN” ADAPTATION (SHORT)

Maine based production company Bonfire Films is bringing the work of author Stephen King back to his home state.  The author has granted the company non-commercial rights to the film through his Dollar Baby program.   This will be the companies’ second attempt at a King film, after “One for the Road” was halted during the preproduction process.

Director Corey Norman explains, “I experienced two deaths my family as well as a major illness in the month of February that served as a big set back to our production timeline.  Once We were able to continue, the snow was gone.  It was then that we requested a change to our contract allowing us to move ahead with another film.”

But things are moving at full speed for “Suffer the Little Children.” Actress Anne Bobby, best known for her role as Lori Winston in Clive Barker’s Nightbreed has confirmed that she will be starring as Ms. Emily Sidley.  Production is scheduled to begin at the end of next month. 

Corey Norman, director of the wildly successful independent feature, The Hanover House, is set to direct. Being a huge King fan, Norman hopes to create a film that will do the master of horror proud.  The film has already been named an official selection at HorrorHound Weekend Film Festival in Indianapolis, IN this September and at The Crimson Screen Horror Film Festival in Charleston, SC in May of 2016.

In the meantime, you can get involved with the project early by supporting it on Indiegogo.  Incentives range from: tickets to the world premiere at HorrorHound Weekend in September, to autographed posters, film credits and even walk on roles.



“If you believe the only master of horror and suspense to come out of the great state of Maine is Stephen King, then you haven’t seen anything by Corey Norman.”
- Creepercast

“Director and co-writer Corey Norman brings a Stephen King-style to an indie horror audience like only a Maine-native can do.”

"Bikini Mayhem" Teaser!

One of the first Director’s I had the pleasure of talking to and getting to know when I first started Tom H’s Blog of Horror was a guy name Eric Williford of 95Forty Productions. He sent me a film to review called “Natalie’s Lose Lose” and it was one of my first ever Indie Horror film reviews! That film and discussions with Eric gave me some additional courage when it came to the blog and what I wanted to do moving forward and that was become more versatile.

Now a couple years have passed and Eric contacts me again with a film called “Bikini Mayhem” and one of the stars of the film is the amazing and beautiful Cori Collins! I have had the privilege to talk to her before and do a phone interview about a project that she had worked on with Eric Williford called “The Lady Bruins Christmas Slumber Party” which was part of a Horror Anthology called X-Mas Tales, aka Merry Fucking Christmas!

Here is the trailer for “Bikini Mayhem” and I will be doing a review very soon as well as interviewing Cori Collins!

Plot Summary: All Ivy Winters wanted was to be a model. After meeting with a potential agent, it seemed like her career was finally on the right path. But she soon finds herself drugged and humiliated. With her life spiraling out of control, Ivy is on the fast track to destruction. When tragedy strikes, she quickly realizes it’s time to enact bloody revenge on those who destroyed her dreams.

It’s time for a little...Bikini Mayhem!

Rachel soon finds herself in a horrifying nightmare as she is left alone to unveil the madness behind the mask. The unbelievable and twisted revelation of the killer sends Rachel into shock as she discovers her own sick connection with the Garrett family household..


A creepy old lady..... that says creepy fucking things...  Add a mysterious masked santa and you have a fucking bad ass slasher flick! - Tom H.

With that being said, this may not be an original concept however the Direction this film will go and just how terrifying they will make this film is going to be worth while! Please go to their campaign and help support them in any way you can!

MANIA TEASER TRAILER RELEASED
Jessica Cameron Unleashes the First Footage of MANIA

Director/Scream Queen Jessica Cameron has shared the first bit
of footage from her sophomore directorial vehicle, titled MANIA .



The plot of the film revolves around two lesbian lovers who flee
their home and travel cross country after a brutal murder. The
movie stars Ellie Church (Time to Kill, Headless) in the lead role

MANIA was one of three features that were filmed simultaneously

the other narrative feature, which is a modern hitch hiker tale in

Second Coming of Christ). Kill the PA will be the feature length
documentary that chronicles the making of both movies, giving
the fans an eye opening, honest look into how indie films are
made.

Cameron launched her directing career with the multiaward

the globe at various film festivals including the Twin Cities Film

producing from a script by Higgins.

Here is what Cameron had to say about the teaser:
“I’m so excited to share this fun little tease from my feature MANIA. This is one
of the sexiest films that I have seen in long time, and I know fans are going to
love it as much as I do. This film is as naughty as Truth Or Dare is dirty.
