Rare horror, odd sci-fi, jungle nymphs and Charles Bronson! The next wave of Frolic Pictures’ new limited edition grindhouse series doublefeature DVDs are now available online wherever DVDs are sold (Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Best Buy, etc.) Hand-selected by Hollywood exploitation filmmaker Jared Masters. A sordid combination of old school horror, vintage black comedies and juicy exploitation fare. Each DVD is a one-of-a-kind experience, like going to a drive-in back in the day, except in the comfort of your own home.

Each DVD is approximately three hours of shocking, bizarre, and tantalizing entertainment from a bygone era. Packed with cinematic surprises like short subjects, trailers, vintage TV commercials and intermission cartoons.

Digitally scanned from the original 35mm film prints! Be thrilled and pleasantly surprised with what the Maestro reveals across your screen. Screen at parties, make a double feature night with other cinephile friends, or simply enjoy them alone, as you turn on, tune in and drop out of your semi-important responsibilities.

Just pop the DVD in and let it play, thanks to Frolic’s clever auto-starting video discs. It’s like there’s a projectionist grinding out rare film prints for you at your leisure.

Silent horror/fantasy film ‘Amethyst’ wraps principal photography

amethyst PROMO1

 

Frozen in a fairy tale… There’s that moment in some, not all, filmmakers’ careers, that she says to herself, “out with the old habits, and in with the new, groundbreaking forces of cinematic nature.” It’s comparable to the moment a life-long addict of oranges drops them all into a pit, because there are suddenly real Granny Smith apples to be had.

Sometimes a visionary unfolds a new onslaught of creative control, or is unable to control the pseudo-contractions she thought could be perverse without genre-defying Medicare. It is in these docile moments in a director’s life that new blood is born (or shed) on new (however old) subconscious subject matter. Jared Masters has never touched on vampires, sea nymphs, gentiles, river fairies or centaurs… until now, simply because he wanted to, and the studio system wasn’t there to stop him.

In an orangutan-like espionage, Masters disproves himself yet again, to be completely trite and anti-tone deaf. A medical examiner would perhaps see his status as unfit for service in this immediate world, but that is because; look around- the media today has been hijacked by a lifeless digital lie; a corrupt definition (not merely a high one).

The days of real working parts are sadly over, and a mundane tsunami of 78% realism (at best), gushes from flat television sets and defecates onto our living room floors. And what’s worse is that everyone seems to be completely fine with it. Well, for the few of you who appreciate practical effects and cinematic dignity, Amethyst is here. You wont see any computer generated sharks or lavish intergalactic worlds rendered on seventeen different computers from a studio staff out of Glendale. What you will witness is the profound true story of a real girl, who took too much LSD, and made a mockery out of herself in the triumph to get to nowhere. Because, like real life (some would argue), there is nowhere anyone really needs to explore (since we have Wikipedia and Google images). But in a fantasy these new age gizmos should not exist, and that is why we have to dig deeper, into a conundrum of selfless satire, void of back bending idolatry and promote healthy fanfare for new ideas, from a new generation of underground artists. The thirst of worn-out appreciators shall be quenched with Amethyst.

Newcomers Grace Klich and Valerie Miller star, with Derrick Biedenback and Olivia Yohai. Cinematography by Takede Osheame. Production assistance and continuity by Matt McPartland and Casey Plemons. Written and directed by “The Woody Allen of Horror” Jared Masters (Slink, Ballet of Blood, After School Massacre).

One drop is enough… Trailer coming soon.

Frolic Pictures and psycho-sensationalist Jared Masters invite you on a trip that might last… Forever. The new school of cinematic marvels is introduced in the form of… a girl, who gets trapped in that trip, because she exceeded the recommended dose, the warning; that one drop is enough.

Amethyst is the surreal true story of a beautiful birthday girl, whose 16 innocent years on earth are extremely disrupted by the celebration of her turning 17. It comes in the form of a dropper bottle, a full vile. It was intended for the entire party, but without thinking she consumes it all. Her quick decent into horrifying hallucinations transpire, as she explores her mother’s garden, with her best friend Ember, who tragically gave her the gift, in pursuit.

Introducing Grace Klich as Amethyst, and Valerie Miller as Ember. Co-starring Derrick Biedenback as the Centaur, with The Prince of Horror Erotica himself, Jared Masters, portraying the Nobleman. Cinematography by Takede Osheame. Production assistance and continuity by Matt McPartland and Casey Plemons. Written and directed by Jared Masters (Slink, Ballet of Blood, After School Massacre).

This new horror fantasy is being filmed in stunning 4K resolution. It will be the first feature film Jared Masters has shot outside of California, and is rumored to be completely void of dialogue. Psy Matix and Wizerd are in negotiations to provide the score. We can expect a release set for later this Fall, 2016. Trailer coming soon.
