0

LOS ANGELES (May 2, 2014) – The production team of upcoming horror feature, SQUEAL: Blood Harvest has officially announced that horror director James Cullen Bressack has officially signed on to direct the psychological horror thriller. “I’m very excited to be a part of this awesome project and to push the envelope to a place it hasn’t been yet.” said Bressack in response to inquiries about his involvement in the much anticipated release. Bressack is known within the indie horror film industry for his work on such films as 13/13/13, Hate Crime, and Blood Lake. He first exploded onto the scene at the age of 18 with the success of his first feature My Pure Joy and has been generating a considerable amount of buzz ever since. He has also been active in the production of a series of horror anthologies focused on showcasing other up and coming
indie horror filmmakers.

Bressack’s Twitter account has recently achieved ‘verified’ status, which is almost unheard of for an indie film director. His official Twitter page can be found here here.

SQUEAL: Blood Harvest follows the story of young Maggie Crane and her brother Jake as they attempt to unravel the mystery behind Jack’s recurrent nightmares of squealing pigs. After a move to their Uncle Ollie’s farm, Maggie and her camera further explore the dark and sinister foundation of her brother’s fears to the tune of chilling revelations.

The film is currently in preproduction and scheduled for a 2015 release through Dismal Productions in association with MOnsterworks66. The screenplay was written by Michael Hultquist (Arena, Victim) based on an original story concept created by Seth Metoyer (Cell Count, Deadly Punkettes, Ballerina Massacre) and story coordinator Shannon Hilson. Executive Producer Steve Boyle has recently joined the project, and casting is also in progress with Bill Oberst Jr. (Criminal Minds, Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies, Children of Sorrow) set to play the lead role as Uncle Ollie.

Tune in to find out what really goes into Don Taco’s secret tasty recipe!

Carne

 

About the Film Forty years after Charlton Heston warned us that “Soylent Green is people”, Carne: The Taco Maker has come from the dirty streets of Los Angeles to make us all question just what makes our favorite street vendor’s food so delicious.  Is it cat?  Dog?  Human?  Or is it just plain old factory-farmed cow?  Horror fans will have to find out for themselves when Carne hits small screens everywhere this June.

“I felt the need for a pool of filmmakers that could come together and develop low budget films and highest artistic quality,” said writer/director Rene Rodriguez, founder and director of Teatro Urbano/Chango Cinema.  “From my idea of developing a horror movie, together with Josh Sands, Rosemary Rodriguez and René Alejandro Rodriguez, The Taco Maker was created. This was also a family and community project.”

 

Todd David Schwartz of the Beverly Hills Times gave the film his highest rating of four stars.  Raving that Carne is “Crazily entertaining!,” he went on to say “It reminds me of early John Waters, and David Lynch at his most droll.  It’s dark, weird, and unlike anything else that’s out there right now.  Invite a bunch of friends over and have a wild party while you enjoy it!”

Synopsis

Customers from all over come to taste Don Taco’s secret tasty meat, unaware of what they are consuming and the dark family secret behind his success.   Official Trailer and More Information:
