'All Hallow's Eve' A New Horror Film With Human Sacrifices From Director Guy Bodart Starring Vanessa Coleman and Stephen Manley Coming October 2014

A Guy Bodart Film

 NEWS BRIEF! August 26, 2014
As Halloween approaches, it means more horror movies are also going to be released! One such film currently in production is called “All Hallows’ Eve” from director Guy Bodart's IFA Pictures.
    Synopsis/Plot: On All Hallows Eve, a secret society of priests has gathered together, and it’s not for any good in the world. They are conducting diabolical ceremonies in which humans are being sacrificed to appease their God… Samhain.

    Quote from Lorelei Lanford: the 1st Assistant Director, Producer & Writer who also makes a cameo appearance in ALL HALLOWS EVE... 
     "I would like everybody to know that this movie was shot in ULTRA 16mm FILM format (Kodak) as we do support film. The director of 'All Hallows Eve' is Guy Bodart who has been in the film business for over 40 years, directing films both in Europe and the U.S. His career started with documentaries and commercials then moved to features in 1984. The 'All Hallows Eve' trailer was at the Cannes Film Festival and we received excellent feedback. The completed film will be presented at the American Film Market in November 2014." 

    "I do believe this film will be very different from other horror films as it actually has a story! It starts  in the 15th Century England, where 'All Hallows' Eve' originated. When Countess Victoria is killed by the rebellious villagers, she levies a curse on all of them, then the film focuses on the present. I also am a huge fan of Vincent Price and when I wrote the script I had him in mind for the 2 main characters 'Ambrus' played by the extremely talented Stephen Manley and 'Countess Victoria' played by British actress Vanessa Coleman. IFA Pictures is Las Vegas based and we strongly support the local Independent community which is the main reason why we hired all local actors. Going through the casting process I was pleasantly surprised to see how many really talented actors there are in Las Vegas. Just to name a few... Vanessa Coleman, Eryn Pablico,  Stephen Manley, Miles Coleman and Billy Patterson. Los Angeles has nothing on us!!! :)"

   Recent indie horror films are mostly remakes with the same themes. It’s great to see IFA Pictures producing an original horror film that takes terror to a whole new level. 

   Writer and talented actress Lorelei Lanford will also make a cameo appearance in All Hallows Eve along with a fantastic cast:

  • Vanessa Coleman ... Countess Victoria/Julianne
  • Eryn Nicole Pablico ... Elizabeth
  • Stephen Manley ... Ambrus
  • Estephania Solis ... Abigail/Leticia
  • Marilyn Wienmann ... Debbie
  • Billy Patterson ... Prophet Master/William

    Synopsis/Plot LineTHE SAWGRASS FOOTPATH by author Tressa Graves, unfolds with one nightmare after another. In leaving his hometown in Virginia, to get away from the circus his parent's gruesome murders had become, Dr. Tom Diggins and his lovely wife, Ann, find a whole new batch of horrors in a home they bought in Florida under false pretenses.
   It was indeed a beautiful house... where a family was murdered! The wife, the children; all while the father was away. What follows is tremendous treachery and heartache over the insanity and brutality of the cultish murderers who are now after Dr. Tom and his wife, Ann, ending in what can only be described as the most ghoulish of murders ever conceived.

   Project Director for a book of short stories featuring a consortium of writers.

    New Horror Novel from 
      "The Queen of Darkness" Tressa Graves

   Tressa Graves possesses the unique ability to make grown men stink of fear. The characters she brings to life make you feel a distinct familiarity, seeming so real, you believe they will reach out of the book and grab you. Tressa has been compared to such writers H.P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allan Poe, also being referenced as the "Tennessee Williams of Horror." She weaves entertaining tales where violence becomes harrowing and suspense threatening, slinging guts and gore with the best of the boys. Her writing style is not unlike an emotional roller-coaster, hurtling the reader through fits of fear and rage, screaming at the characters to run! Finally, someone who can bring horror back to its core roots, much in the style of Alfred Hitchcock.  

Official Teaser Trailer for The Sawgrass Footpath 
"A story of a couple running from one murder into a swarm of others"


    "I have read your book "The Sawgrass Footpath" (295 pages) in its entirety. I must say, I was very disappointed. No, more than that, I am appalled. After corresponding with you over the last week or two, I thought I knew the kind of mind I was dealing with. We talked about your Southern roots. Your confusion as to the behavior of the residents of the state you lived in up north was well articulated, and your observations were spot on. All throughout the narrative, you sprinkled idiosyncrasies of your personality into one of the main characters. You do this so well, we naturally feel we know who the characters are, and what the outcome of the story will be; however horrible the journey is to get there."
     "I have read my share of horror. The elaborate character histories of Stephen King, the suspenseful tales of Alfred Hitchcock, the graphic fright of Clive Barker, the eerie otherworldly fright and descriptive cavern and dungeon scenes of Howard P. Lovecraft are all part of your repertoire. But your Edgar Allen Poe heart stopping finish, is just so unpredictable and shocking, I can't recommend it to any reader of any age. You, my dear, go far over the top. I hated it. It disgusted me. I have been betrayed. Now stop reading this and get back to typing the sequel."

Herschell Gordon Lewis’ Bloodmania, Epic New Horror Film Coming Soon From Diabolique Films

It’s Nothing Short Of Amazing To Witness The Godfather Of Gore Slip Into Marketing Mode
    Quote from Herschell Gordon Lewis... "This motion picture will elevate the entire "splatter film" genre to a plateau well above whatever any other film has achieved before. And we're not just describing scenes or technical expertise. We're talking about entertainment!"
AUGUST 8, 2014

    NEWS BRIEF! August 10th, 2014 - Herschell Gordon Lewis, the 85-year-old creator of the “splatter” sub-genre of horror, is sitting in the lobby of Calgary’s Grey Eagle Hotel on a beautiful morning enthusiastically promoting his upcoming film.

      Herschell Gordon Lewis’ Bloodmania, currently being shot with local cast and crew, is a episodic horror movie that the filmmaker says will nudge the sub-genre he created into new territory, away from the current crop of derivative shock tales that he helped pollinate half-a-century ago. He wrote one of the chapters and will direct two of them for Diabolique Films, the newly minted production division of the beloved horror magazine.

      So with a deep, booming voice that would be the envy of any radio pitchman, Lewis lays out the formula for Bloodmania with all the subtlety of a 1950s movie poster. While producers are keeping specific plot lines secretive, Lewis says Bloodmania will combine two major elements: Gore (“Incredible gore! Unbelievable gore!”) and humour (“Incredible humour! Unbelievable humour!”)
