Primitive will be available on DVD, PPV and VOD in the USA on November 19, 2013 courtesy of our good friends at Grindstone Entertainment Group and Lionsgate Home Entertainment!
PRIMITIVE has been invited to screen at The B-Movie Celebration 2012 in Columbus, Indiana. The event takes place September 14th, 15th and 16th. I'm honored to be sharing the screen with such B-Movie legends as Jim Wynorski and Steve Latshaw. The program is jam packed with genre pictures from all over the world and it looks like it's going to be a blast. CLICK HERE TO BUY TICKETS
We've started a petition to get our monster movie, Primitive, on the air at Chiller TV. Horror fans have waited a long time for an all horror cable channel, and now that we've finally got one, the SyFy channel has taken them under their wing and they're threatening to ditch indie horror movies in favor of in-house productions. Click here to send a message to Chiller that great horror isn't born out of a corporate board room! Great horror is made by lovers of great horror!
PETITION TO PROGRAM PRIMITIVE ON CHILLER
The weekend after the festival we learned that in addition to our two nominations, Primitive earned an honorable mention for Le'Rue Delashay's superb original score! Unfortunately you can't please everyone. Click hear to read the Idyllbeast's reaction to our SoCal premiere: Idyllwild Town Crier
Our screening at the Idyllwild 2012 International Festival of Cinema was a big success. Turnout and audience response was amazing. The show went off without a hitch and was followed by a spirited q&a featuring director Benjamin Cooper, and cast mates Matt O'Neill, Gregory Paul Smith (Dino Wolf), Mayank Bhatter and Rachel Riley (8213: Gacy House). Earlier in the day we hosted a special effects demo with artist Mitcheal Toles transforming one lucky volunteer into a Primitive victim, and the monster was available all day for free photo-ops. We met a ton of terrific fans, celebrities, and scored an interview on INd TV. We ultimately left with two nominations, Best Actress Susan Fulton and Best Sound Design Maui Holcomb (Ear Candy Sound). All in all a terrific experience. Thanks to all involved.
While fielding offers for foreign representation, Director Benjamin Cooper was super pumped to learn we've been accepted into the Idyllwild 2012 International Festival of Cinema coming up in January. This is the festival's third year and it takes place in the charming town of Idyllwild in the San Jacinto mountains. Benjamin will be present and some other cast and crew TBD. Tickets are now on sale.
Director/Producer Benjamin Cooper will be shopping PRIMITIVE at the American Film Market in Santa Monica, CA, Sunday through Wednesday. Stop him to say hi if you see him.
The San Luis Obispo theatrical release was a ball. We were covered in much of the local media including the New Times, the Santa Maria Sun, the Santa Maria Times, the Times Press Recorder, the Mustang Daily, the Tribune, KSBY TV, KVEC Radio, and more. The audience responded very positively to the movie, had fun with the q&a and raffles, and the picture looked gorgeous on the big screen. Props to all involved and thank you. Stay tuned for upcoming engagements.
Returned early a.m. from Black October in Las Vegas where the picture was well received. Folks laughed and screamed in the right places. Met some die-hard movie buffs, had a fun raffle, Rachel made a fan for life. She drove the last stretch home and did not kill us as I half expected she would. We were all whipped afterward, but had a great time. Thanks to William and the Sci-Fi Center for hosting us!
