Dark Sky Films and Snowfort Pictures will produce Ted Geoghegan's MOHAWK



Dark Sky Films and Snowfort Pictures have announced they will reteam and continue their multi-picture deal with writer-director Ted Geoghegan on MOHAWK, the follow-up to his critical and commercial horror hit We Are Still Here. The film is set to star Tiio Horn (Hemlock Grove, Blank Paige), a Mohawk native herself. Principle photography begins today in upstate New York.

The new project reteams Geoghegan with WE ARE STILL HERE producer Travis Stevens, producer Greg Newman and co-screenwriter Grady Hendrix, best-selling author of Horrorstör.

Kaniehtiio Horn (Hemlock Grove, Blank Paige) stars in MOHAWK, an intense horror and action tale.  After one of her tribe sets an American soldiers' camp ablaze, a young female Mohawk finds herself pursued by a ruthless band of renegades bent on revenge. Fleeing deep into the woods, Mohawk youths Oak and Calvin confront the bloodthirsty Colonel Holt and his soldiers. As the Americans seem to close in from all sides, the trio must summon every resource both real and supernatural as the brutal attack escalates. 

Other cast in the film will include WWE Superstar Jon Huber (aka Luke Harper) and an elite line up of genre names including: Justin Rain (SyFy's DEFIANCE / TWILIGHT: Eclipse), Noah Segan (LOOPER / STARRY EYES), Ian Colleti (AMC's PREACHER),  Robert Longstreet (TAKE SHELTER / AIN'T THEM BODIES SAINTS), Sheri Foster (Netflix's UNBREAKABLE KIMMY SCHMIDT), Ezra Buzzington (The Hills Have Eyes, Crossbones) and many others. 

Greg Newman (Producer), said: "We are thrilled to be working with both Ted and Travis again. We Are Still Here proved them to be a winning production team.  We're excited for Ted to take on a real-life horror story that promises to deliver action and suspense to spare."

Travis Stevens (Producer) adds "From Rey in THE FORCE AWAKENS, to FURY ROAD's Furiosa, to Wonder Woman to Jessica Jones, action audiences have shown a voracious appetite for strong, well-written female characters. We're excited to work with Dark Sky Films and Tiio Horn and introduce the character of 'Okwaho' to the diverse pantheon of action heroines who have come before her."
Director Ted Geoghegan said, "Mohawk is hard-hitting action-horror that subverts traditional genre tropes while delivering a timeless tale of good versus evil. We look to deliver a horrifying home invasion film where the home is North America itself."

WE ARE STILL HERE, Geoghegan's directing debut, was a wintry haunted house tale that premiered to rave reviews at SXSW 2015 and was released by MPI domestically through its genre division, Dark Sky Films. It quickly hit No. 1 on iTunes Horror. 

Dark Sky Films has seen success over the past year with such acclaimed productions as We Are Still Here, Deathgasm and Southbound.
Snowfort Pictures is currently in post-production on Karyn Kusama's segment for the horror anthology film XX. Other films from the company include Jade Porter's Mexican skateboard documentary Concrete Futuro, John Carchietta's high school romance Teenage Cocktail, Ricky Bates Jr.'s Trash Fire and Sarah Adina Smith's Buster's Mal Heart.

Richard Armitage interview on SLEEPWALKER

SLEEPWALKER is the latest film from director Elliott Lester. Troubled by bouts of sleepwalking and disturbing nightmares, graduate student Sarah Foster goes to her university's sleep research center for help. When she wakes up after her first night of being monitored, the world she lives in seems to have changed in subtle, Twilight-Zone-esque ways. In fact, every time she goes to sleep now, she wakes up in a slightly different version of her world. With the help of sleep researcher Dr. Scott White, she tries to work her way back to the reality she started in. But when they finally succeed, it’s revealed that Sarah’s world is not what she thought at all.

Today my guest is one of the stars SLEEPWALKER, Richard Armitage. Tonight we talk about his work on that film as well as his work as Thorin Oakenshiled in The Hobbit Films, as John Proctor in The Crucible, and his upcoming films Ocens 8 and the Julie Delpy directed film My Zoe.

LAFF Review AND THEN THERE WAS EVE

2017
Directed By: Savannah Bloch
Starring: Tania Nolan, Rachel Crowl, Mary Holland, Karan Soni, John Kassir, and Anne Gee Byrd



Alyssa (Nolan) wakes up to find her home pillaged and her husband missing. The burglars have taken everything, down to the photos of her husband. The police offer little help so she turns to a friend of the family Eve (Crowl) for assistance. The film is less of a "who done it" and more of a "what happened."

The prolonged second act of the film focuses on the relationship between Eve and Alyssa. The suspense of the film lingers in the background while their relationship grows. In fact, clues of what is to come are clearly laid out in a way that allows the viewer to see where the film is headed before it gets there. I'm not sure if this is by design but the effect of having the stories trajectory clearly laid out gives the audience permission to accept this blossoming relationship.

Nolan and Crowl both give stunning performances that anc…

BFF review SWEET PARENTS

SWEET PARENTS review 2017
Directed By: David Bly
Starring: David Bly and Leah Rudick
Written By: David Bly and Leah Rudick

Moving to New York City with ambitions of making it as an artist is an uphill battle. Hell, moving to New York with ambitions of breaking into fast food is an uphill battle. Exorbitant rent makes it difficult if not impossible to get a temp job while you audition, paint, write, or sculpt. And paying $28 for an artisan PB&J not only has a heavy tax on your pocketbook, over time it can carry a greater burden on your soul. Spending tons of money to only feel like you are barely keeping your head above water is a crushing way to exist.

SWEET PARENTS is the story of a young couple who have been living the artists struggle in NYC for close to 8 years. Will has dreams of making it as a Chef and Gabby wants to become a professional sculptor. Both start side relationships, as last ditch efforts to support their careers, in what becomes a choice between ambition and lo…
