One of America’s First Close Encounters Subject of New Film

New documentary about the fabled “Flatwoods Monster” lands on streaming platforms and DVD today

 

Did a UFO crash land in a rural West Virginia town in 1952? New eyewitness testimony obtained by a film production crew would seem to indicate it did. In a new documentary titled, The Flatwoods Monster: A Legacy of Fear, two of the only living witnesses to a strange, mechanical being exiting a bizarre craft will have the chance to tell their story. The Flatwoods Monster: A Legacy of Fear is a new documentary from director, Seth Breedlove (The Mothman of Point Pleasant) which will unlock a decades-old mystery that included a government-ordered military examination of a purported alien crash-site, and multiple UFOs seen by countless residents of Braxton County, WV. The film was at the center of a wildly successful crowdfunding campaign that earned over thirty six thousand dollars through Kickstarter and will see a wide streaming and DVD release by award-winning production company, Small Town Monsters.

 

The “Flatwoods Monster incident” has become one of the most famous legends in modern memory. However, with the Pentagon now opening up about UFO investigations dating back to the 1940’s, the incident can be seen in a new light. In September of 1952 hundreds of people across the United States witnessed glowing objects streak across the skies over much of the Eastern Seaboard. One of the objects in question was seen to land on a hill near the small community of Flatwoods, West Virginia by a group of children. The children and two adults made a journey to the top of the hill to search for the object but instead found themselves face to face with a thirteen foot tall mechanical monster. Later that same evening a branch of the local National Guard unit would be dispatched by Air Force officials to investigate the site of the encounter.

 

The official premiere will be held at the Elk Theater in Sutton, WV on April 7th with members of the Small Town Monsters crew taking part in a Q&A following the showing.

 

The film is being released by the award-winning, production company, who are responsible for last Spring’s, “The Mothman of Point Pleasant”; another documentary centered around a well-known West Virginia legend. The film features an original score composed by Brandon Dalo and cinematography by Zachary Palmisano with special FX by Santino Vitale and fully animated sequences by Chris Scalf.

 

The Flatwoods Monster is now available on DVD and streaming on Amazon and Vimeo OnDemand with a wider digital release planned thereafter.

TERROR FILMS Presents

 

UNEARTHED & UNTOLD: THE PATH TO PET SEMATARY”

The-Path-to-Pet-Sematary-Movie-PosterThe-Path-to-Pet-Sematary-Sell-Sheet

Premieres the Official Trailer, Poster & Special Promotion

In September of 2015, TERROR FILMS announced that it had acquired, “UNEARTHED & UNTOLD: The Path To Pet Sematary” – the documentary chronicling the origins of Stephen King’s bestselling horror novel, “PET SEMATARY” and its journey from script to screen.

For eager fans that have long awaited the release of the documentary, which took filmmakers John Campopiano and Justin White nearly 5 years to complete, the wait is finally over.

 

Thursday April 21st, 2016, in celebration of the 27th Anniversary of the original film’s theatrical release, Terror Films premieres the Documentary’s Official Trailer, Poster and a SPECIAL ONE TIME LIMITED EDITION Promotion. The details of what’s included in the promotion are featured in the flyer seen here with complete details provided on the Terror Films Store Link below.

The Documentary promotional release will begin on April 27th and continue for 27 Days, ending on May 18th and will be the only time this Limited Edition Offer will be available, prior to the documentary’s official release currently set for October 2016.

During this limited time frame fans will be able to order the Limited Edition Combo Pack, which will include a dual Region Free DVD / Blu-Ray copy of the Documentary featuring interviews with Director Mary Lambert and the entire cast; including Dale Midkiff, Denise Crosby, Miko Hughes, Brad Greenquist, Susan Blommaert, the Berdahl Twins and many more. The film also features never-before-seen footage from the sets in Maine, interviews with key crew, the town’s people and packed full of bonus features, including a fan appreciation sizzle reel, a personal interview with the documentary filmmakers and much, much more.

The film, which was discovered by Terror Film’s exec Jim Klock at the Rhode Island Flickers’ Sci-Fi, Fantasy & Horror Film Festival in 2014 is an important release for the company and they are not taking it lightly. Terror Films exec, Joe Dain who negot iated t he deal with the filmmakers stated, “We not only understand the relevance of our Company’s association with this iconic film via this incredible documentary; more importantly we understand the obligation we have to the fans to make this release as special as possible.”

Filmmakers Campopiano and White stated: “When we first set out for Maine nearly six years ago we thought, at most, we would take some photographs of the filming locations from Stephen King’s Pet Sematary and post them to social media. But upon that very first visit we knew that we had stumbled upon something special — stories, people, and places that had been barely documented for the extensive, global horror fan community. We knew within that first year that we needed to go back to Maine and continue to dig, not just to satisfy our own curiosities but also to try and bring an in-depth making of story about Pet Sematary to others who also share a deep appreciation for the film.  Terror Films has stepped up and showcased a similar love for Pet Sematary but, more importantly, the belief that the stories, people, and places we’ve documented have significance and ought to be shared with anyone who has an interest in Pet Sematary, Stephen King, the horror genre, or film in general.”

 

To learn more about this Special Limited Edition Promotion and to purchase the Documentary Combo Pack during the 27 day time frame, please visit the official Terror Films’ Shopify Store Link below and be sure to read all of the details before making your purchase.

The promotion will not go live until 12am PST on Thursday April 21st.

Samurai Cop 2: Deadly Vengeance to Be Released on Blu-Ray and DVD on January 12th

0

Samurai Cop 2: Deadly Vengeance will be released on Blu-ray and DVD this Tuesday, ‪January 12, 2016 on Amazon.com.

Los Angeles, January 11, 2016 (Newswire.com) – Samurai Cop 2: Deadly Vengeance will be released on Blu-ray and DVD this Tuesday, January 12, 2016 on Amazon.com.

This much anticipated sequel to the legendary cult classic, Samurai Cop (1991), explores the dynamic duo of Detective Frank Washington (Mark Frazier) and Joe Marshall (Mathew Karedas), who are teaming up once again in this action-packed tour de force. This time their mission is to solve a series of assassinations being committed by a secret group of sexy female vigilante killers.

“I’m a big fan of the first film and it’s amazing to work with the original cast as well as the new generation of cast members. I feel really blessed. I hope I did the ensemble justice. It helped to have reverence for the cast and I respected everyone’s work in it.”

The Blu-ray/DVD features two audio commentaries with Mathew Karedas, Mark Frazer and Gregory Hatanaka moderated by Dave Robinson, deleted scenes and behind the scenes footage

Alongside the original cast, the film also stars iconic actors such as Mel Novak (Bruce Lee’s Game of Death, Black Belt Jones, Chuck Norris’ Eye for An Eye), Bai Ling (The Crow, Crank: High Voltage), Tommy Wiseau (The Room), Laurene Landon (Maniac Cop 1 and 2, Airplane II: The Sequel, Hundra), Thomas J. Churchill (Lazarus: Apocalypse, Checkpoint), Joe Estevez (Dexter), Dawna Lee Heising (Pond Scum, Ten Violent Women: Part 2), Gerald Okamura (G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra) , Lisa London (Darling Nikki, Divorce Texas Style), Kayden Kross (Street Smart), Lexi Belle (Sisterhood), Kristine De Bell (Darling Nikki, Meatballs) and Joycelyne Lew (Mad Cowgirl, Ride With the Devil), who were both leads in Jackie Chan’s The Big Brawl and countless others.

This film utilizes 35mm film, which is rare in today’s digital world.  This is a new trend as 35mm and 70mm film are being used in the new James Bond and Quentin Tarantino films. Heising’s scene with Wiseau utilized 35mm film, which was apropos as Hatanaka truly gave homage to the original film while also keeping it fresh and current enough for modern day audiences.

SUSPIRIA

COMING TO DVD, BLU-RAY,
AND OTHER OPTICAL MEDIA!

SYNAPSE FILMS, INC. LICENSES DARIO ARGENTO’S SUSPIRIA, SOUNDTRACK BY GOBLIN, FOR DVD, BLU-RAY AND FUTURE OPTICAL MEDIA.

 

fncp_Suspiria1977MoviePostersm

ROMULUS, MI – Oct. 31, 2013 – Synapse Films, Inc. has acquired the North American home-video rights to Dario Argento’s 1977 classic horror film SUSPIRIA, with an original soundtrack by European prog-rockers Goblin. Described as “one of the scariest films of all time” by Entertainment Weekly, SUSPIRIA stars the beautiful Jessica Harper (Brian De Palma’s PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE, Woody Allen’s STARDUST MEMORIES) as a young girl caught up in a coven of witches controlling a German dance academy, with a guest appearance by Udo Kier (Lars von Trier’s NYMPH( )MANIAC, Andy Warhol’s FRANKENSTEIN and DRACULA).

“I’ve been involved in the restoration and release of many films in my career, but SUSPIRIA has always eluded me, until now,” says Donald May, Jr., President of Synapse Films. “It’s one of my favorite horror films and I’m ecstatic that my business partner, Jerry Chandler, was able to negotiate with the rights holders to release this film. This is going to be an amazing project
for us.”

Synapse Films, Inc. will work closely with Technicolor Rome and Technicolor Los Angeles to create an all-new high-definition 2K scan from the original negative for a possible 2014-15 video release. “It’s important to spend as much time as possible to create the definitive high-definition home video version for the fans,” May explains. “We’re going to take our time with this one.”

Synapse Films, Inc. is currently planning the extensive work on SUSPIRIA in conjunction with Technicolor, utilizing both their Rome and Hollywood facilities. The film scanning will be coordinated and supervised by Technicolor Hollywood’s Director of Restoration Services, Tom Burton, whose film restoration credits include Ridley Scott’s BLADE RUNNER, Georges Méliès’ A TRIP TO THE MOON, and Blake Edwards’ BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S.

Final specifications, retail pricing, and extras for the Synapse Films release of SUSPIRIA will be announced closer to the as yet to be determined release date.
