Hawk and Rev: Vampire Slayers (August 28, 2020 - Dances With Films Festival)


Director: Ryan Barton Grimley

Starring: Ryan Barton Grimleym, Ari Schneider, Jana Savage


"Ryan Barton Grimley’s frighteningly funny HAWK AND REV : VAMPIRE SLAYERS will play at the Dances with Films film festival in Los Angeles later this month.

The horror/comedy, starring Grimley, Ari Schneider, Jana Savage, and Richard Gayler, makes its world premiere at the well-regarded festival.

Philip "HAWK" Hawkins doesn't just dream about killing vampires… He eats, sleeps, drinks and freakin' breaths it. After getting kicked out of the Army for staking a fellow soldier with a blunt two by four, Hawk almost dies of boredom working as a night security guard at a deserted warehouse in his hometown of Santa Muerte, California… USA. Just when it looks like all Hawk's options in life have expired, filthy blood-sucking vampires appear and of course… Nobody freakin' believes him! With his back up against the wall, his sweaty Karate Kid headband tied on tight, real tight, and hordes of blood-thirsty vampires closing in, Hawk enlists the help of the one person who kind of believes him… Revson "REV" McCabe, a dimwitted, vegan-pacifist groundskeeper. Together they join forces to save the whole entire freakin' world. Well… At least their hometown anyway.

Says writer/director Ryan Barton Grimley, “So why the heck did I make my film Hawk and Rev: Vampire Slayers? Honestly… The world is just so serious. It’s exhausting being tapped into media and technology 24 hours a day. It’s really intense how many issues are happening around the world. There are so many problems everywhere and I was looking for an escape… I was looking for a laugh and something heartfelt. I was looking for some much-needed levity and humor. I was looking for a break. Hawk and Rev: Vampire Slayers is quite simply a love-letter to my childhood and a more innocent and clueless time when everything seemed possible and like it would turn out okay. It’s a love letter to goofy weirdos with big dreams and ridiculous ideas. It’s just plain old fashioned escapism. Sure, there are themes and morals and critiques of the 80’s, specifically toxic masculinity and homophobia in there too, but at the end of the day, I really just hope you enjoy the ride and leave with a nice heartfelt feeling and the knowledge that maybe… just maybe… we’ll all be okay. “

Produced by Ryan Barton-Grimley, Ari Schneider, A.J Gordon and Jeremy Wanek, Music by Robby Elfman and Ari Schneider (Composer), and editing by Ryan Barton-Grimley and Jeremy Wanek.

HAWK AND REV : VAMPIRE SLAYERS will be the ‘midnight movie’ on the opening and closing night of the festival, playing August 28 and September 5."

"A mother will do anything for her child. Jeff Schneider's captivating new horror film Evil Under the Skin, starring Helen Udy (My Bloody Valentine, The Dead Zone), arrives on DVD and Digital September 8. A mother and daughter head off for a secluded weekend to reconnect but little do they know the sordid past of the home they’re staying in let alone the strangeness it attracts as they descend into madness."

On the Rocks (October 2020 - in theaters and on Apple TV+)


Director: Sofia Coppola

Starring: Bill Murray, Rashida Jones, Marlon Wayans, Jenny Slate, Jessica Henwick, Barbara Bain


"A young New York mother faced with sudden doubts about her marriage teams up with her larger-than-life playboy father to tail her husband. What follows is a sparkling comic adventure across the city -- drawing father and daughter closer together despite one detour after another. Acclaimed filmmaker Sofia Coppola brings a light touch to this blend of an exuberant love letter to New York, a generation-clash comedy about how we see relationships differently from our parents, and a funny celebration of the complications that bind modern families even as they tie us in crazy knots.

Laura (Rashida Jones) thinks she's happily hitched, but when her husband Dean (Marlon Wayans) starts logging late hours at the office with a new co-worker, Laura begins to fear the worst. She turns to the one man she suspects may have insight: her charming, impulsive father Felix (Bill Murray), who insists they investigate the situation. As the two begin prowling New York at night, careening from uptown parties to downtown hotspots, they discover at the heart of their journey lies their own relationship. "

Death on the Nile (October 23, 2020 - in theaters)


Director: Kenneth Branagh

Starring: Kenneth Branagh, Gal Gadot, Armie Hammer, Annette Bening, Russell Brand, Letitia Wright, Dawn French, Rose Leslie, Sophie Okonedo, Ali Fazal, Emma Mackey, Jennifer Saunders, Tom Bateman


"Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot's Egyptian vacation aboard a glamorous river steamer turns into a terrifying search for a murderer when a picture-perfect couple's idyllic honeymoon is tragically cut short.

Set against an epic landscape of sweeping desert vistas and the majestic Giza pyramids, this tale of unbridled passion and incapacitating jealousy features a cosmopolitan group of impeccably dressed travelers, and enough wicked twists and turns to leave audiences guessing until the final, shocking denouement..."

Eternal Beauty (October 2, 2020 - VOD)


Director: Craig Roberts

Starring: Sally Hawkins, David Thewlis, Billie Piper, Alice Lowe, Rita Bernard-Shaw, Penelope Wilton, Morfydd Clark, Robert Aramayo


"When Jane (Sally Hawkins) is dumped at the altar she has a breakdown and spirals into a chaotic world, where love (both real and imagined) and family relationships collide with both touching and humorous consequences."
