LEOPARD gets US release



The Night Shift’s Eoin Macken writes, directs and stars in this year’s most unique and thrilling film experience, out this September from Osiris Entertainment 

From Eoin Macken, best known as Dr. TC Callahan on the hit NBC medical drama The Night Shift, comes the dark and disturbing Leopard, out this month from Osiris Entertainment.

Paris, Texas meets The Wicker Man in a unique, powerfully-performed thriller about two disconnected brothers ostracised by the small village community surrounding them who reunite when their father dies.
“Beautiful, heartbreaking, dark and yet luminous” (At a Glance Mag), the chilling Leopard features  award-worthy performances from Macken (The Night Shift, Merlin, The Tudors), Tom Hopper (Black Sails) and Jack Reynor (Transformers : Age of Extinction).  Written and directed by Eoin Macken.



Inspired by East of EdenLeopard fixes on two separated brothers Tom and Jack, who are cold-shouldered by the Irish village they live in. Jack returns after 5 years with the sudden and unexplained death of their father and the brothers are immediately at odds with one another. Jack’s presence pushing Tom’s loner mentality into a dangerous psychosis and opening an old wound with the locals as to why he originally left. Things take a surreal turn when they find a girl apparently left for dead in the moors and Tom becomes wildly obsessed with looking after her. What follows is beautiful, tragic and bizarre, as the brothers search for a resolution to their past and their relationship to one another in this mesmerizing tale of love, violence and redemption.

Leopard is available On Demand this month from Osiris Entertainment.

Ambition is a powerful drug that can inspire positive change. It can force you outside of the comfortable boxes you place yourself in. It asks you to stretch and reimagine not only the person you are but the person you could be. Most great men and women have a deep relationship with what they see as their purpose. This is a personality trait never driven by or limited to the pragmatic and there in lies the problem. Logic be damned, when a sense of determination is your north star. 
Michael Vaughn (Sommer) is an ambitious psychic on the road promoting a book that no one is buying. Using parlor tricks and audience plants Vaughn helps people "connect" with loved ones who have passed on. Somewhere in between a traveling preacher and a low-rent John Edwards he sees himself as a man destined …

SONG OF SOLOMON Review

Exorcism films do not begin and end with William Friedkin's THE EXORCIST. With entries as varied as BEETLEJUICE, CONSTANTINE, and THE RITE, the exorcism sub-genre of horror films is far more diverse than many immediately recognize.  

With THE SONG OF SOLOMON director Stephen Brio has added a unique take on the possession movie. In his film, the Catholic church attempts to save the soul of Mary (Jessica Cameron) who appears to have been possessed after witnessing her father's brutal suicide.

In a scene that could play as a confessional or an accusation, the family's patriarch lists off the reasons why he is being forced to use his knife on Mary and himself. He details how they were a good, loving family and he can't understand why she is accusing him of abuse. Using demonic control as a metaphor for trauma survival is something so natural, I can't believe it's not woven into every film of this kind.
