At least 4 New Character Additions & a Possible Bad Guy Return for ‘Stranger Things’ Season 3

At the close of the second season of the wildly popular Netflix original series, Stranger Things, all appeared to be right in Hawkins with Eleven/Jane slamming the door to the Upside Down closed. The group were seen having the time of their lives at the school dance without a care in the world, but nothing can be too safe in Hawkins for very long, especially with the Mind Flayer still loose in the Upside Down and very aware of the presents of the group, particularly Eleven and her powers.

There have been countless rumors and theories surrounding the upcoming season 3 (including the return of the vile Dr. Brenner), but the addition of at least four new characters have been confirmed. Fans will meet Hawkins’ Mayor Larry Kline described as your sleazy typical 80’s politician who will be played by Cary Elwes (The Princess Bride). The introduction of a new journalist with questionable morals and a sick sense of humor named Bruce will also be making an appearance and will be played by Jake Busey (The Stoned Age). A new possible love interest for a member of the group (or just another girl for them to fight over or maybe another gifted teen like Eleven) named Robin described as an alternative girl filled with angst will be played by Maya Thurman-Hawke (daughter of Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke). A neighborhood elder named Patricia Brown who enjoys spending time in her garden and giving advice to the children of the neighborhood has not yet been cast, but the studio is on the hunt for a woman in her 70s to fill the role.

It has been confirmed that the third season will be set during the summer of 1985 and the internal friendships of the group will be tested and will run for eight or nine episodes. Sadly, fans will have to wait until the end of 2018 or even possibly the beginning of 2019 for the new season.

Kickstarter Campaign Launched for James Bickert’s ‘Amazon Hot Box’

Crowdfunding campaigns are traditionally started before the production of a film, but this is not the case for James Bickert’s new project, Amazon Hot Box; the film has already been shot and edited. This Kickstarter is set up as more of a pre-order with perks. By breaking tradition and crowdfunding after the film is finished, there are better perks offered and more preview material to check out.

unnamed

This is the first feature film from WIP Productions, LLC; formed by Brian K. Williams (Space Babes from Outer Space) and James Bickert (Frankenstein Created Bikers).

This is not a cheap exploitation film, Bickert is known for his badass female leads and celebrating the strength women have to offer (in short…it’s not all about boobs and girl on girl action).

Amazon Hot Box stars Ellie Church (Space Babes from Outer Space), Tristan Risk (American Mary), Jett Bryant (Frankenstein Created Bikers), Kelsey Carlisle (Headless) and Paul McComiskey (The Wolf).

Synopsis:

An innocent college student is tossed into a jungle hellhole where she must fight for her life against an evil wardress, psycho inmates, voodoo experiments and the incredible torture machine.

The project will not be funded unless 100% of the $15,000 goal is met. The campaign has already raised $6,783 of the goal with 43 days remaining to contribute. Like all other crowdfunding campaigns, there are perks which range from Blu-rays to props from the film. If you want to get your hands on a copy of the movie and exclusive perks, check out the Amazon Hot Box campaign.

What is Inverted?

Synopsis:

In a world paralleling the 70’s, a centuries-old cult known as the “Inverts” kidnap four individuals against their will to recruit for the holy war against the second coming of Christ. From a homosexual hippie, drug- addicted prostitute, man in drag, and a pedophile priest; they’re all deemed to be choice victims to invert through various initiations that push past the most brutal of boundaries.

Although this is an indie film, Clay and Orndoff have snagged some pretty recognizable names. Inverted is set to star Destinie Orndoff (Red Eye), Trevor Dow (Rise), Jennifer Nangle (Irrational Fear), Lynn Lowry (The Crazies), David McMahon (Rogue Island), Tommie Vegas (Party Night) and Maria Olsen (Lords of Salem).

Clay and Orndoff had this to say about the film:

“With this film, our main goal isn’t only to deliver an insanely intense, horrific piece of cinema; but to improve from our past work. To the character development, how we present our story, the special effects, everything. We promise to bring you a horror film, made by horror fans. We have learned so much since we shot our first feature and want to make Inverted go above and beyond.”

The chosen platform is Indiegogo. Like all other crowdfunding projects, there are loads of perks; everything from t-shirts, DVDs and Blu-rays to parts in the film. Inverted has a flexible goal of $17,666. With a month left on the campaign, the film is 3% funded with $443 of the total goal.  Backers can be assured that 100% of the funds will go directly to the film as the creators have provided a breakdown of where your donations are going.

Indie Horror Film ‘Monkey Farm’ Is an Intense Slow Burn

Indie horror films come in all forms, many of which are in the tradition of the classic slasher film; a body is found and a bloodbath ensues until one final girl is sitting in the back of an ambulance as her friends and possibly the killer make their way to the morgue. Monkey Farm does not follow the traditional horror film algorithm, instead it starts off slow and ends with a bang.

Monkey Farm begins in a documentary format moving slowly into a found footage, creature feature. The beginning, I will give them credit for, was well researched, believable and semi eyeopening to the world of animal testing; not the typical beginning to a horror movie.

If I were to compare it to any other films, I would say that it is a better version of The Blair Witch Project. Bonus points given to Ian Messenger for including a lot of references to House of 1000 Corpses (I will not spoil it for anyone, you’ll just have to watch it and find them for yourself) and even more props for centering the basis of the film around such a controversial topic in the age of being easily offended and the keyboard warrior.

If you’re looking for a film that is completely original and outside of the Hollywood remake spectrum, Monkey Farm is one worth checking out. It is gritty and super suspenseful, combining a lot documentary, found footage, creature feature and a touch of comedy is a lot to manage in one film, but this time it was done beautifully.

 

Synopsis:

An exploration of what happens when human curiosity and animal rage collide. This low-budget, high-concept thriller presents a different kind of antagonist, and the same well-meaning-but-doomed kids you love to cheer for as they meet their grisly ends.
