Dual Visions Unveils the Official Artwork for The Divine Tragedies

“Your Death will be Beautiful”

 

Film production company Dual Visions has completed the official artwork for the serial killer fever dream The Divine Tragedies. The artwork shows a partially disguised character from the film. As well, this horrifying crime thriller is loosely based on the Leopold and Loeb murder case, in which two brothers murdered a young fourteen year old boy. This case shocked citizens of Chicago in 1924. Now, director Jose Prendes (The Haunting of Whaley House) is re-envisioning this case for a new audience. And, fans of the crime genre can preview more from the film here.

 

The official artwork shows a wounded young woman and rose petals. The blood reds highlight the darker elements of the film. Also, the tagline promises murder: “your death will be…beautiful.” But, who will be the first victim? Deep blues also contrast the lighter colours, with a butterfly symbolizing transformation. And, graphic artist Sasha Burrow and photographer Matt Shapira have designed this artwork to show the bloody nature of the film. This film is both bloody and strangely beautiful.

 

As an update, The Divine Tragedies has completed filming. Brothers and producers James and Jon Kondelik are hoping to release this title before audiences later this year as the film tours the film festival circuit. Fans of horror will have a chance to see some of the most famous faces in the genre on the big screen, including: Ken Foree (Dawn of the Dead), Lynn Lowry (Cat People), Barbara Crampton (You’re Next) and Sean Whalen (People Under the Stairs). Fans will not have to wait long to see the film, with a World Premiere set to be announced shortly. Also, a trailer will be released soon and the clip will reveal more of the film’s haunting and tragic story. More details on the film are just a few short weeks away.

 

The official synopsis: The Divine Tragedies, based loosely on the famous Leopold and Loeb murder case, tells the tale of Charles Brubaker and his half-brother Thomas Lo Bianco, who concoct a deadly game to test their superior intelligence against the dimwitted masses. This game will eventually lead to murder. And when Genevieve, a beautiful single mother, enters their lives they finally find the perfect girl for their first kill. But problems arise when they quickly discover that Detective Homer Gaul (Ken Foree), a cop with a very special gift, is hot on their trail (Dual Visions).

Director: Jose Prendes.

 

Producers: Jon and James Kondelik.

 

Cast: Lynn Lowry, Ken Foree, Sean Whalen, Graham Denman and Jon Kondelik.

“A Serial Killer Fever Dream!”

 

The famous Leopold and Loeb ransom and murder case is being brought to the screen with The Divine Tragedies. This twisted tale of stalking, kidnapping and violent murder has been re-envisioned by director and writer Jose Prendes (The Haunting of Whaley House). A true tale of wits, the production team, including brothers and producers James and Jon Kondelik, are pleased to announce the attachment of actors Lynn Lowry and Sean Whalen to their terrifying tale. Actor Ken Foree has already announced his participation in the film, with more famous horror personalities set to be included soon.

 

The Leopold and Loeb murder case has been sensationalized in film previously. Alfred Hitchcock used this famous trial in his famous thriller Rope (1948). And, Prendes has his own interpretation of the case. In the story of The Divine Tragedies, Charles (Graham Denman) and his half-brother Thomas (Jon Kondelik) concoct a deadly game to test their superior intelligence against the dimwitted masses. This game will eventually lead to murder. And when Genevieve, a beautiful single mother, enters their lives they finally find the perfect girl for their first kill. But, problems arise when they quickly discover that Detective Homer Gaul (Ken Foree) is hot on their trail.

 

Fans of horror will recognize both Sean Whalen and Lynn Lowry from previous horror roles. Sean Whalen has had appearances in such tales as Wes Craven’s The People Under the Stairs (1991) and more recently in Hatchet 3 (2013). Director Prendes says of Sean and his character: “I wrote this really bizarre and sleazy character, who just so happened to have some endearing qualities and I always had Sean in mind for it.” As well, actress Lynn Lowry has appeared in dozens of horror titles. Her most prominent roles include The Crazies (1973, 2010) and Cat People (1982). Lowry has had several recent appearances in the horror genre and she has collaborated with Prendes previously in The Haunting of Whaley House (2012). Prendes says of Lowry: “Lynn is simply wonderful. She is the kind of actor that draws us in and makes us care. She easily changes the dynamic of a scene. I am honoured to be working with one of my favourite actresses again.” The production crew behind The Divine Tragedies is proud to bring Sean Whalen and Lynn Lowry on board one of this year’s most thrilling murder tales – The Divine Tragedies!

 

*filming begins at the end of February, 2014.

 

Director: Jose Prendes.

 

Producers: Jon and James Kondelik.

 

Cast: Lynn Lowry, Ken Foree, Sean Whalen, Graham Denman and Jon Kondelik.

“A Serial Killer Fever Dream”

Writer/Director Jose Prendes (The Haunting of Whaley House) and producers Jon and James Kondelik are excited to welcome the badass Ken Foree (Dawn of the Dead, Lords of Salem) to the cast of their new film.
“Ken is not only a good, hard-working actor, but has such an iconic presence that he makes everything cool,” says Prendes. “We sent the script to him and he got back to us the very next day with a simple: ‘I’m in’. We are beyond thrilled to have him on board.”

 

The Divine Tragedies, based loosely on the famous Leopold and Loeb murder case, tells the tale of Charles Brubaker (Graham Denman, The Haunting of Whaley House) and his half-brother Thomas Lo Bianco (Jon Kondelik, Airplane Vs. Volcano), who concoct a deadly game to test their superior intelligence against the dimwitted masses. This game will eventually lead to murder. And when Genevieve, a beautiful single mother, enters their lives they finally find the perfect girl for their first kill. But problems arise when they quickly discover that Detective Homer Gaul (Ken Foree), a cop with a very special gift, is hot on their trail.

 

“Jose Prendes, is one of the most promising up and coming directors,” say Ken. “I’m looking forward to our collaboration and working with the producers on this exciting film. I’m very anxious for shooting to begin. I know it will be a wonderful, creative adventure for all of us.”

 

Filming begins at the end of February.
