FIRST LOOK FROM CANNES : "CUTE LITTLE BUGGERS"



Tony Jopia’s highly anticipated comedy-horror hybrid Cute Little Buggers has found a home with Uncork’d Entertainment and High Octane Pictures, respectively. Uncork’d has acquired rights to the film in U.S and Canada, while High Octane has the rest of the world.

Described as Gremlins meets Hot Fuzz, the film sees hostile aliens crash-land on local farmland where they proceed to snatch young women from the local ball. It is up to the villagers, and a visiting hero named Melchoir, to fend off the invaders and bring peace back to the sleepy English countryside.
Uncork’d President Keith Leopard is pleased to be back in business with director Jopia having previously distributed the filmmaker’s well-received 2015 film, Crying Wolf.

“Tony knows how to give audiences a good time – and his latest is no exception. Cute Little Buggers will spook you – there’s moments in this that will make the goosebumps rise and then some - but it will also give audiences belly laugh after belly laugh! At its core it’s a real throwback to the golden-age creature features.”

Galen Christy, founder of High Octane Pictures, is equally excited about the film.

“Not many films can immediately hook you from the first frame… but this sure does! Cute Little Buggers is infused with an infectious energy, some high-spirited performances, and a unique premise - I defy anyone not to really enjoy it!”

Featuring genre icon Caroline Munro, Cute Little Buggers will be released later this year.
Uncork’d Entertainment’s upcoming releases include the acclaimed documentary Mom & Me, in select theaters throughout May, and highly-anticipated Summer release Gremlin.

According to the press release, "High Octane Pictures releases Clowntergeist, comparable to Warner Bros’ big Summer release IT, in September."

WHAT THE FEST!? Interview with Larry Fessenden on DEPRAVED

On this episode of the podcast, I had the chance to chat with genre legend Larry Fessenden. He was kind enough to carve out 20 minutes of his day to chat with me about his latest film DEPRAVED, the opening night selection for this year's WHAT THE FEST!? 
Shot on the 200th Anniversary of Mary Shelley’s FRANKENSTEIN,  writer-director Larry Fessenden’s brings his unique vision of the literary classic in DEPRAVED, set in modern Brooklyn. This meditative reimagining of the novel explores the crisis of masculinity and ideas about loneliness, memory and the subtle psychological shocks that shape us as individuals.
