WE ARE STILL HERE Director returns with MOHAWK

Ted Geoghegan made a huge impact with his excellent horror movie WE ARE STILL HERE and fans have been waiting for his next film. It's finally on its way, after a slew of film festival appearances.

MOHAWK is a period-set thriller with horror overtones. Late in the War of 1812, a young Mohawk woman and her two lovers battle a squad of American soldiers hell-bent on revenge. WE ARE STILL HERE didn't hold back on the red stuff and was packed full of surprises, and judging from what this early trailer doesn't show, I think we can expect something similar this time round. I'm every excited to see this and we'll update with release details when available.

Low Budget Film MANHUNT Coming Soon

Franklin Correa is a guy I met through Facebook. An independent film-maker, Franklin has been working on his feature MANHUNT: working as director, editor, actor and other production roles. Here's Franklin's synopsis:

"Receiving the call that he's been waiting for for job training people for FBI it was a dream come true for martial artist & survivalist Conroy Jenkins along with this FBI analyst girlfriend Stacy Adams, until their world becomes turned upside down When Stacy is abducted my maniacal Man by the name of Santos. Now Conroy must agree to Santos's terms and play his game of cat-and-mouse seeing if he can survive the day from being hunted down by Killers hired by Santos. Conroy must use all his skills and techniques to take on the sadistic people and save the love of his life and finishing the game."

Let's make no mistake: this is a low budget film so don't expect big budget polish. However, compared to other films of similar budget I'm liking the flare and style I'm seeing here - the sound fx and music being used, for example. We're going to be keeping a close eye on this as it heads off to film festivals.

Dark Water finally sees Dolph and Jean-Claude on the same side!

When we saw the trailer for Black Water, the upcoming action thriller starring Jean Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren, we were a bit hesitant in our enthusiasm. The film was boasting the teaming up (rather than being on opposite sides) of the pair, however the trailer was downplaying this aspect. The trailer is cleverly edited to make it look like the pair are acting together, however neither actor actually appear in the same shot together. That is until the 0.57 mark of the trailer, where you'll see the pair in the same room (blink and you'll miss it). And thanks to Dark Horizons we finally have a decent photo to prove it.

Directed by Pasha Patriki (who made the pretty decent GRIDLOCKED in 2015), this stars Jean Claude as a "deep cover operative" who finds himself captive on a CIA blacksite - a retro-fitted submarine - who enlists the help of another prisoner (Lundgren, we're assuming!) to help him escape. 

The film is due for release in the UK on March 12, 2018. Check out the trailer (and pic) below...
