Terminator Genisys (2015) - Trailer Released

Two For The Road (1967) - Release Announced

Eureka! Entertainment have announced the release of TWO FOR THE ROAD, Stanley Donen's popular 1960s romantic comedy-cum-road movie chronicling the ups and downs of a marriage, starring Albert Finney and Audrey Hepburn star as the Wallaces, a couple who have been together with varying degrees of satisfaction for the last 12 years. Featuring a score by Henry Mancini, the film will be released on Blu-ray for the first time anywhere in the world in a Dual Format (Blu-ray and DVD edition) as part of the Masters of Cinema Series on 19 January 2015.

TWO FOR THE ROAD Original Theatrical Trailer http://youtu.be/xRlJJk9eEY4

Available to pre-order from Amazon http://amzn.to/1vPEXQ8

SYNOPSIS:
One of the great films by Stanley Donen (Singin' in the Rain, Charade) after the studio era had come to a close, Two for the Road was a break-off with the old system, one which allowed Donen to further stretch his art, aided by screenwriter Frederic Raphael (Stanley Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut), in this tale of a couple voluntarily stretching themselves through the long period of their relationship.

Portrayed in fragments that span the couple's time together in marriage, Two for the Road runs the course of a relationship (between Audrey Hepburn and Albert Finney) that finds a circumstantial come-together escalate into newlywed-status and, through a series of travails, into the serious situation of bearing a daughter. The disturbance of marriage, and/or life, is chronicled from here on.

After so many studio-system smash-hits, Two for the Road marked a reckoning for director Donen — which went on to influence directors like Jacques Rivette for its portrayal of a couple in interaction and its keen sense of duration across the length of their time together. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Stanley Donen's Two for the Road for the first time on Blu-ray in a Dual Format edition.

SPECIAL DUAL FORMAT (BLU-RAY + DVD) EDITION:
  • New 1080p presentation of the film (on Blu-ray) in its original aspect ratio
  • Optional English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
  • 36-PAGE BOOKLET featuring writing on the film and more!

Hi-8 (Horror Independenty 8) (2013)- Release Announced

Wild Eye Releasing's Horror Anthology  Hi-8: Horror Independent 8 Available Nationwide On DVD December 16th

"Essential viewing ... knows how to squeeze every drop of blood from every dollar spent while still being able to deliver the big scare." -Ain't It Cool News


New York, NY - Wild Eye Releasing has announced the December 16th DVD release of Hi-8: Horror Independent 8.  The eight-part anthology brings together some of the most recognizable names in home video horror of the past 30 years, capturing the creative essence of low budget, shot-on-video filmmaking.  The DVD release of Hi-8 will be available nationwide (SRP $14.95).

Called "The Expendables of shot on video horror" by Horror Hound Magazine, the directors for Hi-8 are Tim Ritter (Killing Spree), Brad Sykes (Camp Blood), Marcus Koch (100 Tears), Ron Bonk (The Vicious Sweet), Donald Farmer (Demon Queen), Todd Sheets (Zombie Bloodbath), Chris Seaver (Mulva), and Tony Masiello (SOV: The True Independents), who have returned to 80s and 90s style, gore-laced storytelling. All eight segments feature only practical effects and all directors were forbidden to use any post-Internet technology, including HD cameras, green screen, CGI or found footage.   Like the V/H/S series, Hi-8 brings together independent genre filmmakers to spin tales of terror on tape. 

Pre-Order Hi-8 on DVD
The DVD release of Hi-8 will exclusively include a commentary with producers Brad Sykes and Josephine Sykes, The Making of Hi-8, teasers and trailers, and behind-the-scenes images.  A Special Edition VHS release of Hi-8 is available exclusively on the Wild Eye Releasing website. 

North Woods (2011) - Teaser Trailer, Stills And Poster

Horror veterans Lynn Lowry (Shivers, The Crazies) and Debbie Rochon (Tromeo and Juliet, American Nightmare) star in North Woods, a motion picture of unrelenting terror. Inspired by the likes of Phantasm, The Evil Dead and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, North Woods aims to bring the grindhouse horror ethos to a modern setting.

A teaser trailer for the film has been released and can be viewed on YouTube:

The opening sequence, in which Rochon showcases her scream queen talents, is also available: http://youtu.be/U4ILX0ooAlg


North Woods is in its final 48 hours of crowdfunding on Indiegogo to raise money in order to complete production. To encourage last-minute donations, prices have been slashed. Backers can get autographs from Lowry and Rochon, a DVD, a poster and more in one package for as low as $15. Other perks up for grabs include screen-used props, producer credits and even percentages of the film's profits.

The film is directed by Chris Moore, who co-wrote the script with Jason Kasper and stars alongside Lowry and Rochon. The cast also includes fresh faces Sarah McCraw, Andrew Roach, Amanda Grussaute, Brittany Mahaffey and J.K. Michaels.

"North Woods is the kind of horror film that people have been looking for," explains co-writer/editor Jason Kasper. "But it's also everything that they're not expecting. It genuinely feels like a '70s and '80s horror film in the way that it's executed, giving you a nostalgic familiarity. However, it takes the tropes and cliches of the genre and completely turns them on their heads."

Official Synopsis:

From within the woods, a blood splattered young man, John Prescott, runs out in front of a car, terrified and muttering gibberish. Enter Dr. Pamela Alley, an esteemed psychiatrist, and Detective Morris, her contact and partner from the local police force, who have just been assigned the boy's case. As the teen begins telling his diabolical tale of a local weekend vacation gone horribly wrong, it becomes clear that nothing is ever what it seems when a very troubled substitute teacher, with a webbed past of nightmares, emerges as the center of the proceedings. What keys does she hold to the nearly phantasmic events surrounding the area for the last several years?

Presented by Macabre Pictures and Flowtac Entertainment, North Woods will be released in 2015. For more information, North Woods can be found on Facebook, Twitter and Indiegogo.
