“Slash” Filming Begins This Summer in New Mexico


“SLASH”, a SAG feature film starring Maria Olsen (Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, Para- normal Activity 3, American Horror Story), Todd Farmer (Jason X, My Bloody Valentine, Drive Angry), Gibby Haynes (lead singer of Butthole Surfers) and including several cameos by A-List actors, will be filming in New Mexico for four weeks.

SLASH is a story about young people who see their friends butchered around them. They must deal with each other’s violent fantasies and face their own demons...or die trying!

The writer/director/producer Rycke Foreman and producer/actress Maria Olsen (of MOnsterworks66) are us- ing Sheryl Roberts to do the Principal Casting. A casting call will be held in New Mexico in April and the production will begin in late June. The film will employ a crew of at least 85, a cast of 25 to 30 speaking roles, and approximately 350 background players. A vast majority of both will be New Mexico hires.

Currently, the attached crew consists of such notables as Rich E. Cordobes (Special FX: Lord of the Rings trilogy, Transformers), Steve R. Moore (Visual FX: Avatar, Titanic) and Peter Devaney Flanagan (Editor: Scream, Hellboy 2). More crew members are needed to fill production requirements. The film will employ a crew of a minimum of 85. For more information on being considered for the crew, please get in touch with Lora Carlson, producer, at lora@slashflick.com.

Rycke Foreman has worked in virtually all aspects of independent film, television and theatre for more than fifteen years around the Four Corners area. In 2009, he optioned a horror spoof to a small production company in Hollywood, and was part of the writing/producing team behind the multi-award winning short film “Auto Care,” shot later that year for the National Film Challenge. He has published short fiction since the early 90s, appearing in dozens of publications such as Marion Zimmer Bradley’s Fantasy Magazine and 69 Flavors of Paranoia, which he edits.

Best known for her appearances as Mrs. Dodds/The Fury in Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, as well as Paranormal Activity 3, American Horror Story and Rob Zombie’s Lords of Salem, Maria Olsen has worked on more than 40 feature films and over 70 shorts since 2005. She has also won four awards (including awards for both acting and directing), had two short films appear at the 2009 Cannes Short Film Program, one at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival, plus others at Fangoria’s Weekend of Horrors and HorrorFest. Olsen also owns MOnsterworks66, producer of features such as Brandon Scullion’s Live in Fear, Randal Kamradt Jr’s Fara- way, Eric Michael Kochmer’s Way Down In Chinatown, Bert Havird’s Reunion and Michael LaPointe’s LoveTouchHate.

Indie Horror Short “Microcinema” Named Best Short Film at Jersey Gore Film Festival


MASSACHUSETTS (March 24, 2013) – The independent short film horror “Microcinema” was selected as Best Short Film at the 2013 Jersey Gore Film Festival (http://jerseygorefilmfestival.com) this weekend at the historic Darress Theatre in Boonton, NJ. Written and directed by Harvest Tide Productions co-founder Skip Shea, “Microcinema” has received wide acclaim including the fan-based 2012 Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Award Honorable Mention for Best Short Film. (http://www.rondoaward.com

“Harvest Tide and the cast and crew of “Microcinema” are very honored and grateful to be recognized by Geraldine Winters and the Jersey Gore Film Festival,” said Shea. “This might be a spoiler but with this film, I wanted to change the formula of the revenge film after countless movies where we see a woman become a victim before she fights back and either gets away or gets her revenge. It’s a good formula, but I wanted to turn those tables. As a survivor of clergy sexual abuse I wanted to see the predator pay his karmic debt for even thinking about and planning to commit such a crime.”

Shea, whose abuse occurred in the Diocese of Worcester in Massachusetts, is an activist and his films often serve to raise awareness through horror and satire of the ongoing issues around clergy sexual abuse.

Starring Alex Lewis and Aurora Grabill, “Microcinema” (www.watchmicrocinema.com) is the story of Peter Martell, a highly educated, well-to-do young man with too much free time on his hands. He spends it watching snuff films. One day he makes the bold decision to cross the line from observer to participant, aspiring to bring a philosophical element to his own kind of snuff films. Ready to go to work, he tracks his first victim into a haunted New England wood, where the boundary between participant and observer takes a different turn.

“Microcinema” is Harvest Tide’s first online and internationally self-distributed short horror film which scored on several best-of lists and gained momentum as a cult favorite and a hit with horror reviewers. Danielle Holman writing for Truly Disturbing Horror, www.trulydisturbing.com listed “Microcinema” as one of the five best horror films saying, “Skip Shea’s seven-minute short film is deserving in the ranks of the big films as it’s able to accomplish more in less than ten minutes than an hour and a half feature length film.” In her Bleeding Dead, http://bleedingdeadfilmreviews.blogspot.com/ she has called “Microcinema” "…one of the most important horror films of our time."

Chris Conduit of The Conduit Speaks, www.theconduitspeaks.com put “Microcinema” as the best horror short of the year giving it his Conduit Award.

“Microcinema” wowed critics and audiences last year at several horror film festivals and screenings within the few short months of its release. Screenings in 2011 included the 1st Annual Danish Horror Film Festival: THE TURBINE at Spinderihallerne, Vejle, Denmark; All Things Horror Shudder Fest at the Somerville Theater in Somerville, MA; Short Horror Films at AS220 in Providence, RI; the Massachusetts Independent Film Festival; and before Canadian horror film fans at Fright Night Theater presents: ABSENTIA & Microcinema at the Staircase Cafe Theater in Hamilton, Ontario.

What the critics are saying about “Microcinema” 

"This is a 6 minute experience genre fans owe themselves. It’s rare these days to find full length Hollywood feature films that feel fresh, let alone 6 minute shorts made on tiny budgets." - Life After Undeath Blog.

"The film is brave and unrelenting. It is a breath of fresh air to a lot of the common horror tricks that are being trotted out time and again." -Alexandra West, Scare Tactics Blog.

"Skip Shea is an adept director with equal ability to write, his short film gets more across than most full length films.  4 out of 5 Stars" - The Bleeding Dead Film Reviews. 

"You will not be expecting to see the events that unfold in this shocking short film." - The Horror Spot

"The script itself deserves kudos for completely drawing your attention to the one aspect we would expect every horror film to contain and then suddenly shocks you with an element you rarely see in this genre."  The Scariest Movies Online 

"I figured I was in for one of three things:  a really solid work, a bite size film that left me feeling nothing, or one of those that makes me want to substitute rat poison for the salt on my dinner table.  Those are the three categories all art falls into for me, always. Yet, when it was all said and done, Shea's vignette carved a whole new icky slot out just for itself. 9 out of 10 Stars" - The Conduit Speaks

"Brilliant. 8.5 out of 10 Stars" - The Gruesome Hurtzogg Horror Movie Review Podcast.

"4 out of 5 Stars" - Char Hardin 

"What I find particularly interesting about Microcinema is its plot and how it seems to blend together torture, voyeurism, and a lot of other really weird horrific topics like snuff films." - Horror Society 

"Microcinema Doesn't Disappoint" - Victor Infante, Worcester Telergram & Gazette

"The new indie horror romp Microcinema and it is a doozy." - Truly Disturbing Horror

"Interesting short that starts as your usual slasher/serial killer fare before taking a wicked little turn."  -Shaun Sjolin Cenobiteme Blog

"Unicornsblud Horror Review Stamp of Majestic Approval"  - Unicronsblud's Horror Reviews

“Twisted and sick but with a new vision.” - The Dr. Chris Radio of Horror

Twisted Tails Film Festival


We are currently working on our 3rd annual fundraising event! In previous years, we would choose a single, phenomenal, Independent horror film and do a "Texas Premiere of" type thing. Our first year featured the horror/comedy All American Zombie Drugs and last year we showed the award winning horror Brutal. This year we've switched things up and decided to go with a full fledged film festival... and so Twisted Tails Film Festival (www.twistedtailsfilmfestival.com) was born! We've always had a soft spot for animals so we decided to put our two loves together and create this festival. 100% of all of this year's proceeds go to a local no-kill animal shelter called Paws in the City


Submissions opened March 1st and will run through October 1st. We are looking for quality horror shorts and features to showcase this year. We have a three panel submissions board that will go through all the films and choose the ones that fit in with what we are trying to do. Because of the nature of the festival, films that depict any kind of animal violence will not be accepted. At this time, we are still working on securing the venue and booking guests. We will be announcing those guests as they are confirmed. In previous years, our guest list has included Camille Keaton, A. Michael Baldwin, Bill Oberst Jr., composer Alan Howarth, Cleve Hall and many more. 

We will have a special screening of the award winning horror film The Orphan Killer with director Matt Farnsworth and star Diane Foster will be in attendance. They have also come on board as our first official sponsors!



The fundraiser will be held December 6th - 8th in Dallas, TX. Our goal is to bring in films from all over and showcase what independent horror is all about all the while helping the homeless animals of the world. We are also seeking sponsors as well so if anyone who shares our love of film and animals wants to sponsor, they can email us at info@twistedcentral.com for any details.

Lilwickidz


Once upon a time the world was perfect and bright, so bright that there was no such thing as night. The people knew nothing of misery or fear. Anger, jealousy and worry never darkened anyone’s mind, and children were most certainly not into any mischief. To most people today it would seem fantastic, but to those back then it was incredibly...boring. For how do people appreciate a good and perfect world if they have never known a single bad day? This problem was solved when Ms. Fortune created the Lilwickidz. Nine tragic children dug out of the shadows and assigned dark emotions. They were created to bring the knowledge of happiness to those that had it all along, but couldn’t see it in the perfect light.


Now, wherever the Lilwickidz go, people no longer suffer from long days of boredom.

As for how you use and control your Lilwickidz, Ms. Fortune left that part entirely up to you.



Dig Them up if You Dare

Here is a small sample of who I dug up…


Zoe (on the left) and Stitches (on the right): 
Zoe is a misfit Zombie. She doesn’t quite fit in with the other Zombies. It might be her upbeat attitude or maybe it’s because she’s a vegetarian. Stitches (on the right)  may look nice and clean, but don’t be fooled, he won’t stay that way for long. With time he will require additional stitching and mending. Don’t worry, he doesn’t mind a little pain, as long as you provide a lot of tasty brains.


Misery:
You know what they say, ‘she loves company’, so really how much cheer do you think you summon to make it all better for the miserable one? Go ahead then, try to break her depressing spell. Maybe you can tell her your funniest joke, or sing her a song?



Mischief:
Don’t let his beaming smile and innocent look fool you. This little clown is always up to something no good. Though Mischief is always up for a good time, and believe me his ideas start off sounding pretty sweet when you’re bored, but I will say this once: BE CAREFUL!

Get your hands on one of these awesome plush dolls at:


They will also be appearing at conventions including…

March 29-31 -Anime Matsuri, Houston
May 3-5 -Texas Frightmare Weekend, Dallas
May 24-26 -Comicpalooza, Houston
June 21-23 -Texas Comic Con, San Antonio
August 2-4 -Space City Con, Houston
