Howlin' Wolf Records Releases: TWO MORE SCORES in 2014


Shock Waves [1977]: proved to be a film of several firsts. It was the first of the "Nazi zombie" films which has entered and stayed in the pop-culture mainstream, firmly establishing itself as a fan favorite since its premiere. It opened up the territory for other Nazi zombie pictures , including Zombie Lake (1981), The Treasure of the Living Dead (1982, also known as Oasis of the Zombies), Hard Rock Zombies (1985), Horrors of War (2006, aka Zombies of War), Outpost (2008) and Dead Snow (2009), not to forget the highly-popular manga and its spin-off anime, Hellsing (1997-2009).

First feature for director Ken Wiederhorn, as well as composer Richard Einhorn. Wiederhorn's thesis film at Columbia University, Manhattan Melody (1973), had previously won the Student Academy Award for Best Dramatic Film in its inaugural year. Shot on a shoestring budget, with the gracious participation of two film heavyweights in Peter Cushing and John Carradine, It proved that one didn't over-the-top effects or technical perfection to create a movie of chilling psychological horror.  
 
The Toy Soldiers [2014]: Written/Directed by Erik Peter Carlson   Starring Constance Brenneman, Chandler Rylko, Najarra Townsend, Jeanette May, Nick Frangione, Samuel Nolan, Thatcher Robinson, Megan Hensley, Andre Myers, Izzy Pollak, Kevin Pinassi and Amelia Haberman.

On one evening in a decade of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll, the innocence of youth and family unravels. Five parallel coming-of-age stories dramatize the stages of grief. A youthful mother in a custody battle over her children, finds tranquility with the bottle. The abuse of her ex-husband still haunts the children; a nineteen year old drug addict, and his younger brother, a bullied closet homosexual.There's the story of the dog; a teen who offers sexual favors to gain acceptance, the challenged classmate who would do anything for her love, and the redhead beauty, haunted by a secret, tragic past. These lives and others will change forever on this final evening before their hangout, The Toy Soldiers Roller Rink, closes its doors for the final time.

Just Announced! For more information on these two releases, please visit "HOWLIN' WOLF RECORDS".  One is a classic horror film "SHOCK WAVES" released in 1977 and the other is "THE TOY SOLDIERS" a current film.

History Channel: SWAMP PEOPLE (Season 5) [DVD]


Alligator season in Louisiana begins on the first Wednesday in September and lasts for 30 days. In this time, many of the alligator hunters, following a tradition dating back 300 years, earn most of their yearly income in a high risk vocation dependent on experience and the whims of weather within strict regulation by wildlife laws. Hunters are each issued a certain number of tags that must be attached to their kills; once they "tag out" (run out of tags), their season is over, and they may no longer kill any more alligators for the rest of the season.

During this 30 day window, some of these hunters earn most of their annual income culling alligators; therefore, the ultimate goal for the alligator hunters is to tag out before the season ends. Most of the hunters spend the rest of the year harvesting other species (fish, crawfish, shrimp, crabs, raccoons, turtles, etc.) to augment their yearly incomes and/or holding down full-time jobs in other industries.

Magnolia Home Entertainment: LIFE’S A BREEZE [DVD]


LIFE’S A BREEZE is a charming dramedy that follows a family struggling to stay afloat and together through hard times in Ireland. When the family makes a well-intentioned attempt to clean out their mother’s house, and accidentally trashes a mattress she has been stashing her life savings in, Nan (Fionnula Flanagan), her unemployed slacker son Colm (Pat Shortt), and his niece Emma (Kelly Thornton) must overcome their many differences to lead their family in a race against time to find a lost fortune.

I know sometimes families are dysfunctional... well this family is no different . They can make a difference and they do, though it takes them a little while to figure it all out. Would I watch it again, I would say most definitely "yes"...

Lionsgate: The Lost Legion [DVD]


After years of decline, the Roman Empire is desperate to recapture its past. Amidst war and political confusion, Urbina Prima schemes to make her son, Cassius, the next emperor. The only thing standing in their way is Maximus, a once great Roman commander with his own dreams of nobility. Can Rome reclaim its glory, or will the chaos lead to civil war? 

So this film wants to be a whole bunch of films, sadly it never reaches any sort of level than leaving the royal sleeping chambers. Sure if you want of nudity and talk of war and fighting well then this is for you... though I am proud to say I did watch the whole film from start to finish. All the parents of all the people in this film... should be proud, very proud!

Cinedigm: THE KINGDOM OF DREAMS AND MADNESS


Granted near-unfettered access to the notoriously insular Studio Ghibli, director Mami Sunada follows the three men who are the lifeblood of Ghibli – the eminent director Hayao Miyazaki, the producer Toshio Suzuki, and the elusive and influential “other director” Isao Takahata – over the course of a year as the studio rushes to complete two films, Miyazaki’s The Wind Rises and Takahata’s The Tale of The Princess Kaguya. The result is a rare “fly on the wall” glimpse of the inner workings of one of the world’s most celebrated animation studios – creators of successful films including Princess Mononoke and the Oscar® winning Spirited Away, the highest-grossing Japanese film of all time – and an insight into the dreams, passion and singular dedication of these remarkable creators. 


It was a treat, something to step inside and see a whole other world and the inspiration for so many characters and creatures.

Against his parents’ wishes, Ryan chases a musical career, embarking on an unpredictable journey where he eventually finds his stride, ironically enough, as a Drexel Hemsley impersonator, and uncovers his hidden family secret, leading him to question everything he’s ever believed about God, family and his own identity.
