From "Deadly Gamble" to "The Listing" - Mario Cerrito is going to revolutionize the Horror Genre!


“The Listing”is the 2nd film Directed by Mario Cerrito, his first being “DeadlyGamble”! “Deadly Gamble” was a great film that gave me an instant sense of appreciation for the work Mario has done. He and I met before he decided to shoot “Deadly Gamble” when he was working on a projected called “The Cornfield Massacre”! To show just how much this man loves film making, things fell through with a film called “The Cornfield Massacre” and he did not give up! He adjusted and was able to bounce back with “Deadly Gamble”!

Mario is now working on another feature film “The Listing”! “The Listing” is a suspenseful film about a “successful Realtor that is unexpectedly blackmailed with a harsh time restraint”- Plot from “The Listing” Facebook page.

This film features Bernard Glincosky, which was also in “Deadly Gamble” and did an amazing job I might add! Glincosky brings some serious talent to the film as the Realtor, and adding that Julie Stackhouse plays the wife of the Realtor, John DiRenzo also another actor that did an awesome job in the film “Deadly Gamble” plays the role of John Carr and the very well-known and amazing Jessica Cameron joins the cast as Jenna!


I have a feeling Mario Cerrito is going to do nothing but impress us yet again and I hope that when he makes it big he remembers us little people down here!! 

Please visit “The Listing” fan page and give it a like and share it among your friends, you will not be disappointed and you will be doing a huge service to Mario and other indie film makers by spreading the word!!

Dante Tomaselli's "TORTURE CHAMBER" - Tom H. says bring it on!!

THE STORY


A shocking family portrait. A boy oozing blood and saliva, bound by ropes and handcuffs, imprisoned in an animal cage. A deeply religious mother who believes her son is controlled by the devil. A Catholic priest devoted to saving his family, who tries to cure his deranged younger brother – but 13-year-old Jimmy Morgan is possessed by an evil too powerful to be exorcised by any religion. After escaping from a mental institution, Jimmy is back with a vengeance – and an army of children who follow his every murderous desire. The town trembles in fear as the youths attack and abduct its residents – innocent and guilty alike – dragging their victims to an abandoned castle and subjecting them to grisly torments deep within its underground tunnels. Those who discover the terrible secret behind the disappearances and deaths don’t live long enough to tell it. The teacher, the doctor, even Jimmy’s own brother and mother, will all confront their fates in the Torture Chamber.


MY THOUGHTS
As I casually look through facebook and other websites to find really kick ass indie horror projects or completed films etc.. I find myself finding some really cool films that I would love to watch as well as review to help gather support for the film. I do this because I love helping others achieve their dreams as well as I get to enjoy seeing films from around the world that casual movie goers will never see due to the lack of attention brought to these films or even the fact that most people do not give indie films a chance due to unknown.

I just watched the trailer to “Torture Chamber” by Dante Tomaselli and yet again I feel like I have found a gem! The trailer on FACEBOOK felt like a late 70’s  80’s film vibe and I would put it up against any trailer that I have seen that grabbed my attention! I would like to believe that I have a pretty damn good eye for films just by it’s  trailer and synopsis, and this film is not going to be a let down! I will be seeking a chance to review this film and I will give you my thoughts as soon as I do!

Tom H experienced ONE NIGHT OF FEAR! - Review

TOM H’s BLOG OF HORROR
REVIEWS
ONE NIGHT OF FEAR



“One Night of Fear”, Directed by Brian Troxell and has an excellent cast (Jessica Sonneborn, Jimmy Dempster, Suzi Lorraine, Russ Forga and Jason Sutton)! I have been talking to Jimmy Dempster about this film for a while now and he knows I was anticipating this film!

“One Night of Fear” does not slowly build up to anything, there is not a lot in the way of character development yet it tells the story throughout the film and explains just why everyone is there. Jason Sutton did a great job at being the silent killer, stalking around taking everyone out and it’s believable! He’s a big guy that is very intimidating and seeing a guy like that in the wilderness would cause me lose all control of my bodily functions! His intensity was felt from start to finish!

While I don’t want to spoil anything for anyone, I will say that Jimmy Dempster’s character was one I enjoyed watching mainly because I have built a relationship with Jimmy over the past couple of years as well as his performance! I was a little bummed but I can’t say why..

Jessica Sonneborn and Suzi Lorraine were fucking fantastic in the way they played off of each other; I truly wanted to see Suzi’s character get the shit knocked out of her by Jessica’s character. Suzi took that role and ran with it and made me really not like her! The end was great and it was done with some creativity, again no spoilers so I can’t say too much except that most horror film lovers will appreciate it!


Brian Troxell was pure genius behind the scenes and did not disappoint me at all with this being the 2nd film of his that I had the pleasure of watching! I will continue to watch any film he Directs/Writes in the future!!

Tom H's Review of "Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead"

Tom H’s Blog of Horror
Reviews
WYRMWOOD
ROAD OF THE DEAD

In 2013 I was able to watch 7 minutes of the film “Wyrmwood” and I was pretty excited to find out more! After a couple of years and lots of updates, “Wyrmwood” is finally able to be viewed! ON NETFLIX!

I sat down for the first time in a while and anxiously awaited my stupid app to load the film and watched one of the most awesome zombie films that I have had the opportunity to see! This film was full of action and had some unique qualities! I have watched a lot of zombie films in my life and I could easily compare this with any Resident Evil film! “Wyrmwood” was described as “Mad Max” meets “Dawn of the Dead”…. I do agree.. Very much so!

The film’s intense action and storyline had me glued to the screen and entertained wanting to see more gruesome kills and anticipating what twists would come, and “Wyrmwood” certainly did have a twist that I did not see coming and it was delivered in such a way to where it did not seem ridiculous!

Tristan & Kiah Roache-Turner have quickly become one of my favorite filmmakers in the genre and I am fucking excited to see what they do next!! Coming from an area where there are hardly any filmmakers it is nice to know I can always reach out to the community and find quality films that I can share with others that may not know so much about indie films!

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.”
- HorrorHound Magazine


Synopsis

"Suffer the Little Children" is a short story by Stephen King that was published as part of the collection Nightmares & Dreamscapes in 1993.  It follows the decline of an aging teacher, Ms. Sidley, who believes her students are being taken over by something evil.

"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..
