Hallow Pointe movie news

Hallow Pointe, the highly anticipated horror/thriller in development with Bobby Ray Akers Jr.’s Dead of Night Films & award winning filmmaker Thomas J. Churchill’s (“Emerging Past”) Church Hill Productions, is taking a fresh new approach to the creature feature genre. Churchill & Akers are bringing a new style and feel to their definitive werewolf film. Churchill’s partnership with “Predator’s” executive producer Laurence Pereira on another project, led to his addition to the production team and sparked the first step in this new direction. Innovative script changes and new casting additions are making this film one to watch. Ashley C. Williams (“The Human Centipede”), Tony Todd (“Candyman,” voice of The Fallen in “Transformers”), Allison Kyler (“Prom Night,” “TBK: The Toolbox Murders 2”), Stacey Dixon (“Hell House”) and Brad Loree (“Halloween Resurrection,” “Mr. Hush”) are joining an already impressive horror cast, with more big names in the works. Grammy-nominated writer/producer Jeeve (“Be Cool,” “Cold Creek Manor,” “Untraceable”) is bringing a great vision and talent to the score for the film and artist Dennis Willman has done an amazing job giving the poster a whole new look, which debuts today for the first time (attached; hi-res available upon request). “Hallow Pointe” is a chilling story about love, life and what lengths you go through to try and save someone; all told within the classic horror staple, a creature feature. The film is centered around Madeline’s Closet, a quaint bed and breakfast hidden away from the world on a forgotten dirt road in the woods. Henry and Jane are hoping a weekend there will help rekindle their love for each other. Staying there, along with a few other guests, everything seems to be going as planned…until the sun sets and the full moon lights up the sky. Instead of trying to save their marriage they must now work together to try and save their lives. The filmmakers’ vision for the film is to bring back the feel of old school 80’s horror giving fans something movies today are lacking – great creature development with hard core visual FX. Like two of the great werewolf films “The Howling” and “An American Werewolf in London,” “Hallow Pointe” is an “R” rated werewolf film with adult sensibilities played straight with a little humor to break up the drama and horror. Akers is “really excited with how the film is evolving. The new direction, new look and changes are more in tune with what audiences want to see. With a visionary filmmaker such as Churchill, we’ll all be in for one amazing adrenaline rush.” The cast currently includes a list of genre-favorites, including: Leslie Easterbrook (“The Devil’s Rejects,” “Police Academy”), Kane Hodder (“Hatchet 1 & 2,” “Friday 13th Parts 7 -10”), Tiffany Shepis (“Abominable”), Cody Matthew Blymire (“1313: Nightmare Mansion”), Belinda Balaski (“The Howling,” “Gremlins”), Eileen Dietz (“The Exorcist”), Sarah French (“Shriek of Sasquatch”), Steve Barton (“Hatchet 2,” “George A. Romero’s Survival of the Dead”) and Lar Park Lincoln (“Friday the 13th Part 7”). Hot new horror author Joe Knetter penned the screenplay and Spectra Records promises a soundtrack album full of alternative rock favorites sure to please movie and music enthusiasts alike. Marla Stoker, of Marquee Media and Marketing, is handling publicity for this production. Production is set for 2011 in Pennsylvania with an anticipated 2012 theatrical release. Churchill is “raising the bar to make an epic werewolf film like you have never seen before with an all-star cast from horror and mainstream films. Pure carnage!”

Shadows of the Damned

A Shadows of the Damned Developer Diary has been released.

In Shadows of the Damned, gamers will assume the role of Garcia, a hard-as-nails, leather-clad, motorcycle-riding professional demon hunter who finds his true love kidnapped by vengeance-seeking demons. As he explores the farthest reaches of the netherworld, Garcia battles through hell and back, with danger and turmoil around every corner. Throughout Shadows of the Damned gamers will find themselves challenged by demented puzzles and thrust into gruesome battles with vile and deformed creatures that can only come from the darkest recesses of hell. The game features a grotesque, highly stylized art direction that transports players into a grisly world. The entire experience is enveloped with a pulse-pounding musical score by famed videogame music composer Akira Yamaoka, that takes the over-the-top action sequences and intense boss battles that both Suda51 and Mikami are renowned for creating to new heights.
