Once Upon A Time in Jerusalem

Not long ago we featured a short film called “Fist of Jesus” on Sunday Scares for you all to see. What? You missed! Well here’s another chance for you to see it. We strongly suggest you take a look at it like RIGHT NOW…

Now wasn’t that awesome! If you liked that you are sure going to enjoy…

"Once Upon A Time in Jerusalem” tells the adventures of Jesus and Judas in a world full of Zombies, Demons, post-apocalyptic Punks, Mutants, Cowboys, the Roman Army, Monsters, Mythological Creatures and Steampunk technology in the 80s style that we love.

Directed by: David Munoz and Adrián Cardona

Their dream is to make a comedy that is a cross between the New Testament and “Mad Max”, with the humor of “The Life of Brian” and the style of Peter Jackson's early works like “Bad Taste” or “Braindead”. Above all it is an epic movie - Jesus’ journey compared to that of Odysseus or Atreyu in “The Never Ending Story” or any of the “Conan” films, but crazier, in the style of Ash in “Army of Darkness”.

We aren’t the only ones who thought “Fist of Jesus” was an awesome short film. It received 60 awards at fantasy film festivals, which gives us high hopes for “Once Upon a Time in Jerusalem."

So please click the pic, and help them make what’s sure to be an amazing featured film!

There are plenty of great perks available in return for your pledge to this project. Here are just a few of them:

-A copy of the DVD.
-The official T-shirt.
-A Poker Deck with 54 characters of the film.
-An awesome 80s style Jesus action figure!

Magnet Releasing Takes the World on HONEYMOON

New York (March 27, 2014) – The Wagner/Cuban Company’s Magnet Releasing, genre arm of Magnolia Pictures, announced today that they have acquired world rights to HONEYMOON, the chilling directorial debut from Leigh Janiak, which had its world premiere at SXSW earlier this month. HONEYMOON features rising star Rose Leslie (HBO’s Game of Thrones, Downton Abbey) and Harry Treadaway (The Lone Ranger, Penny Dreadful). Janiak co-wrote the film with Phil Graziadei; Patrick Baker and Esmé Howard produced.

Leslie and Treadaway star as young newlyweds who travel to remote lake country for their honeymoon where the promise of private romance awaits them.  Shortly after arriving, Paul finds Bea wandering and disoriented in the middle of the night. As she becomes more distant and her behavior increasingly peculiar, Paul begins to suspect something more sinister than sleepwalking took place in the woods.

Christina Rogers and the Magnolia Pictures International team will be representing the film at the upcoming Marché du Film in Cannes. All international rights are available. 

HONEYMOON will next be featured at the Tribeca Film Festival in April. Magnet will release the film later this year. 

“HONEYMOON is an auspicious debut from the very talented Leigh Janiak, who has a preternatural mastery of tone and mounting dread, not to mention a deft hand with actors” said Magnolia President Eamonn Bowles. “Rose Leslie and Harry Treadaway have stunning chemistry—they light up the screen.”

Said director Janiak: "I feel incredibly honored to have my first feature in Magnet's smart and expert hands. I'm so excited to work with them -- they're the perfect home for the film and I know they will do great things with it."

The deal was negotiated by SVP of Acquisitions Dori Begley and VP of Acquisitions Peter Van Steemburg with ICM Partners and the filmmakers legal counsel Evan Krauss of Gray Krauss Stratford Sandler Des Rochers LLP. Rose Leslie is repped by Hamilton Hodell (UK), UTA, and Anonymous Content; Harry Treadaway is repped by United Agents (UK), ICM Partners, and Principal Entertainment.

Fiji: The Beginning is the first novel in the series, Taming of the World

Fiji: The Beginning often blends the cultures and traditions of the Fijian multiculturalism in a fictional manner, and will keep the readers on edge as I take them into a different world. The novel is unique and the story is something different, and so is the setting, as it takes place in the laid back atmosphere of the Fiji Islands.

A little insight into the novel: What if the vengeance of a disgruntled soul, who was shunned for being barren when she was alive, is the reason for the birth of the Devil as a mortal? What if the Devil intends to be born to tame the mortal world and get rid of the chaos we have been plunged into? What if the dark night of Amawus, a legend in the Fiji Islands, has some truth to it? And what if Maya Smith and her friends unknowingly, and by threats from the vengeful soul, do take part in this? Do you think that the power of the Devil and the vengeful soul will succeed?

These are some of the questions, which two renowned witchdoctors in the Fiji Islands, need to get answers to and try to avoid the inevitable.

Synopsis: Fiji: The Beginning is a gripping, paranormal novel which often blurs the line between good and evil.
The mythical, dark night of Amawus, and grim warnings of its consequences, do not deter Maya Smith and her friends from sneaking out onto the open waters of the South Pacific. The night begins playful and daring, but quickly digresses into a horrendous nightmare when the girls are faced with a series of strange encounters. Yet their nightmare only begins when the girls return from their ill-fated journey and realize that what they bring back to the little community of Momi Bay is the vengeful ghost of Mariam Smith. Shunned for being barren during her brief life, Mariam returns determined to unleash a terror of unimaginable proportions.

Warned not to utter a word of their terrifying experience for a period of three months, the young women seek solitude, waiting for the time to elapse, unaware that the darker forces are gaining in strength, becoming even more powerful than the Island's most sacred witchdoctors. As the end of the three months approaches, something sinister begins to awake; something the whole world has forever feared... the birth of Satan as a mortal.

Fiji: The Beginning is the first novel in the series, Taming of the World.

Horror Documentary, Leviathan, takes the next big step

Horror documentary steps into next phase

Leviathan: The Making of Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser 2 completed it’s UK studio shoots this week with a great day interviewing Third assistant director, Rupert Ryle-Hidges, Beverly Pond-Jones, Make up Effects and Simon Sayce who’s main contribution to the production was the design and creation of the icon puzzle box, the Lament Configuration.

Simon was kind enough to show us some amazing treats including high resolution scans of the original designs, original layouts for the mechanical design and the first brass etching produced for the screen used boxes, though still in pristine condition and never used.

Simon also explained to us the proper method for making the boxes, something few outside the production know and he showed us some of the hidden meaning in the box designs, but you’ll have to watch the documentary yourself to find out what they are.

It has been an amazing journey so far for the whole team. Having had the chance to meet the people behind this classic film, including Doug Bradley, Kenneth Cranham and Geoff Portas to name but a few.

“Never it our wildest imaginations did we think that within 5 months we would have completed 24 UK interviews. We have been amazed with the amount of support given by the cast and crew as well as the fans.“ says producer and Co-Writer, Gary Smart

The documentary moves into the next stage in a few weeks with the team beginning its US phase of production to interview, amongst other, Tony Randall and pf course the man himself, Clive Barker.

“I’m so keen to meet Clive and get a chance to speak with him, not just for the documentary, which at the end of the day is exploring his creation, so needs his voice to make it complete but also as a film maker myself, meeting some one who is so creative and talented and achieved such great things, is a genuine thrill and honour”
Says Director K. John McDonagh.

Pencilled for an Autumn release worldwide, Leviathan has been going great guns since day one and hopes are high that this will give the fans of Hellraiser something they’ve never seen before.
