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.

Dear Full Moon Family,

This week you’ll definitely want to stay after class at Full Moon’s Voodoo Academy. At the prestigious Carmichael Bible College, the faculty have some very unwholesome intentions for their students. Will the newest student fall victim to their evil plan or will he graduate with his soul intact?

Then turn on, tune in, and drop out with Alice in Acidland. This psychedelic gem from our Something Weird catalogue reveals the damaging effects LSD has on the morals of Alice Trenton, an all-American college student turned drug-crazed sex kitten who plunges headfirst down the wrong rabbit hole!

And you won’t want to miss Jess Franco’s The Blood of Fu Manchu. The legendary Christopher Lee stars as a madman who sends 10 beautiful assassins, armed with a deadly poison on their lips, to deliver a “kiss of death” to powerful public figures.

On Thursday stop by the FullMoonStreaming The Vault for Volume 3 of our behind the scenes footage from Evil Bong 3: The Wrath of Bong. So hang out with the cast and crew (and Eebee, of course) as they create Full Moon Feature’s galactic stoner-horror comedy! PLUS we’re offering a FREE 1 Week trial to anyone! So spread the word and give the gift of FullMoonStreaming.com to all your friends and family. Post on Facebook and Twitter and wherever you can about this offer.

Have fun! CB

FULL MOON SUBLABEL WIZARD STUDIOS ANNOUNCES FIRST 3 FILMS

Thanks to http://www.fullmoonstreaming.com

 

FULL MOON SUBLABEL WIZARD STUDIOS ANNOUNCES FIRST 3 FILMS: Charles Band and Full Moon launch new distribution label for independent horror and genre filmmakers, First three titles: VAMPIE, VIRGINIA OBSCURA and VILLANELLE.
Wizard Indy
January 14th, 2014 – From the fevered mind of maverick cult movie mogul and Full Moon Features President Charles Band comes the triumphant return of the brand that first brought oddball shock to your living room: Wizard Studios presents a triple shot of indie shock!
WIZARD Studios is an evolution of Band’s iconic WIZARD Video label, the home video imprint that blazed trails in the early 1980’s, bringing the world’s weirdest horror, fantasy and exploitation films to audiences everywhere via big box rental and sell-through VHS. Now, inspired in part by the unprecedented success of Band’s Full Moon Streaming initiative (www.FullMoonStreaming.com), WIZARD Video has been reborn, this time as WIZARD Studios, an exciting acquisition program and distribution outfit designed to spotlight rising independent filmmakers and their cutting-edge genre pictures.
After receiving a staggering level of submissions since the announcement in December 2013, the WIZARD team have screened all of them and are proud to announce the movies selected for the first wave of release, including:

VAMPIE (Dir:Melissa Tracy and Markus Innocenti, premiering February 14th, 2014)
By far the most far-out of the inaugural WIZARD lineup is filmmaker/actress Ming Ballard’s deranged and hilarious horror comedy VAMPIE, in which a neurotic vampire named Azure (played by Ballard) betrays her allergy to blood by finding sustenance in the plasma pastry of the title. Ballard is said to be the first Asian-American woman to star in and produce her own film with widespread distribution.

VIRGINIA OBSCURA (Dir: Toby Osborne, premiering February 21st, 2014)
Director Toby Osborne’s art-house slasher mystery is a contemporary giallo and stars the legendary Linnea Quigley (who also stars in Full Moon’s new upcoming web series TROPHY HEADS) and rising scream queen Jessica Cameron in a dreamy, sleazy low budget gem of voyeuristic terror.

VILLANELLE (Dir.Rick Laprade, premiering February 28th, 2014)
This jet black and atmospheric shocker is a masterclass in making a massive impact with very little money and plenty of style. In it, an alcoholic detective gets sucked into a nightmarish world when he finds a girl, nearly dead and with dark secrets that slowly alter his perceptions of his own reality.

All three films will premiere EXCLUSIVELY at http://www.FullMoonStreaming.com with select DVD releases soon to follow.

“We’re incredibly excited to re-launch Wizard Studios as a portal to spotlight the best in new genre filmmaking talent,” said Full Moon Features and Wizard Studios founder and president, Charles Band.
“These first three films offer the kind of go-for-broke indie spirit that we at Full Moon have forever championed. Each one stretches their respective budgets and offer the kind of weird, witty and out-there aesthetic that the mainstream just cannot and will never deliver. I can’t wait for fans to check them out!”

WIZARD Studios is an interactive distribution initiative in which fans and filmmakers support each other. Visit http://www.FullMoonStreaming.com/wizard for details on how you can submit your film and be part of the new WIZARD Studios cinema streaming and distribution program!

We’ve launched The Vault!

A new FullMoonStreaming.com EXCLUSIVE!

The Vault offers Full Moon Streaming viewers an unprecedented look deep behind the scenes of our films. These aren’t the slickly cut and tightly edited VideoZone segments that you’ve come to know and love. This raw video footage consists of excruciatingly detailed recordings of the day-to-day life on movie sets and features deleted scenes and unused interviews that didn’t quite make the cut into the final release. None of this footage has ever been seen anywhere else before. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s really like to make a Full Moon film, take some time and dig around in The Vault!
