Blood Lake: Attack of the Killer Lampreys

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water.


Looking to get in on the campy "Sharknado" phenomenon, Animal Planet
has set its own horror film from The Asylum -- the same people behind
"Sharknado" -- called "Blood Lake: Attack of the Killer Lampreys," set
to premiere this Memorial Day weekend.

The two-hour scripted movie stars Shannen Doherty ("Beverly Hills,
90210"), Christopher Lloyd ("Back to the Future") and Jason Brooks
("Days of Our Lives"), and is directed by James Cullen Bressack
("Pernicious"). Doherty and company battle lampreys -- eel-like fish
with huge teeth and funnel-shaped mouths -- after they slide their way
into the city's sewer system and start terrorizing the residents of a
small Michigan town.

Brooks plays Michael, a fish and wildlife expert who moves to the town
with his wife, Cate (Doherty), after being summoned by the town mayor,
Akerman (Lloyd), to help deal with its attacking fish problem.
("River Monsters" star Jeremy Wade also makes a cameo.)

But with these blood-suckers on the loose, the town's residents
quickly learn that a casual dip in the pool or routine trip to the
toilet can turn deadly as the lampreys hunt for their next victim.

The logline states, "There is absolutely nowhere to run, and no one is safe."

"Blood Lake" will premiere on Sunday, May 25 at 9 p.m. as part of the
network's third annual "Monster Week" (actually nine days long)
programming block.

Other Monster Week specials include "Man-Eating Zombie Cats" -- about
big cats with a thirst for human blood -- and a quest to find a giant
crocodile tormenting a village in "Nature's Most Wanted."

But they’ll soon discover they are not alone: an infamously reclusive artist – known only as ‘Mr. Jones’ – lives nearby. He doesn’t like to be disturbed, and only comes out at night when he drags his strange, sinister sculptures deep into the woods.

HOUSE OF DUST

Redding House Asylum. For some, it’s a distant reminder of a time when medical treatment of the clinically insane bordered on torture. For an unsuspecting group of college students, it’s the first stop on a journey into terror! On May 20th, Anchor Bay Entertainment unlocks HOUSE OF DUST on DVD. The chilling possession shocker features a hot young cast including Inbar Lavi (STREET KINGS 2: MOTOR CITY, UNDEREMPLOYED), Steven Grayhm (JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH), Eddie Hassell (THE KIDS ARE ALRIGHT, JOBS), Holland Roden (“TEEN WOLF”), John Lee Ames (DAYS OF DARKNESS), Alesandra Assante, Joy Lauren (“DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES”), Nicole Travolta (“TWO AND A HALF MEN”) and Stephen Spinella (“24”). 

Emma (Lavi) is one of the bright new faces at Camden College. Plagued with visions and voices all her life, she’s now trying to move past her personal demons of schizophrenia, and substitute hallucinations with higher learning. Emma joins her friends when they break into the shuttered remnants of the abandoned Redding House Asylum on campus. When they accidentally shatter canisters holding the ashes of former mental patients and subsequently inhale the dust-filled air, they’re soon possessed by the souls once held within them. One of them happens to be a convicted serial killer from 1959...

Inspired by true events, HOUSE OF DUST opens the door to a nightmare of murder and mayhem.

The posters are limited to a mere 200, and each individually-numbered piece is signed by Lori Cardille (who stars in the film as Sarah). Pullin's art is also available on shirts and hoodies. Last but certainly not least is a shirt designed by Jeff Zornow that depicts the gruesome Dr. Tongue leading a horde of undead friends.

These items are now available for pre-order exclusively on Fright-Rags.com until Monday, January 27 at 10am EST. Orders are expected to ship in late-February.

In conjunction with the release, Fright-Rags is hosting a 35mm film screening of Day of the Dead at The Little Theatre in Rochester, NY on January 24th. Details can be found here.

A LEGEND IS REBORN!


Genre film innovator Charles Band ushers in a new wave of spellbinding contemporary independent horror, cult and exploitation cinema from filmmakers around the globe with newly minted WIZARD Studios imprint.

 

From the fevered mind of maverick cult movie mogul and FULL MOON FEATURES President Charles Band comes the triumphant return of the brand that first brought oddball shock to your living room: WIZARD Studios!

WIZARD Studios is an evolution of Band's iconic WIZARD Video label, the home video imprint that blazed trails in the early 1980's, bringing the world's weirdest horror, fantasy and exploitation films to audiences everywhere via big box rental and sell-through VHS. WIZARD Video (the successor to Band's landmark Meda Home Video label) not only pioneered many concepts in how we watch films, it introduced young audiences to a cavalcade of exciting, erotic, esoteric and avant-garde international genre films and auteurs with such now celebrated pictures as Lucio Fulci's ZOMBIE, Meir Zarchi's I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE, Jess Franco's OASIS OF THE ZOMBIES and A VIRGIN AMONG THE LIVING DEAD and Joe D'Amato's MONSTER HUNTER (aka ABSURD). Many of these legendary releases are now highly sought after and WIZARD Video maintains a level of myth among serious film culture collectors.

 

Now, inspired in part by the unprecedented success of Band's Full Moon Streaming initiative (www.FullMoonStreaming.com), WIZARD Video has been reborn, this time as WIZARD Studios, an exciting acquisition program and distribution outfit designed to spotlight rising independent filmmakers and their cutting-edge genre pictures.

Here's how it works:

Filmmakers are invited to submit their feature length, undistributed films to WIZARD Studios and, after an internal screening process from the WIZARD Studios team, a new movie will be selected every week to premiere - with much fanfare, including stills, trailers and other promotional tools - on the WIZARD Studios portal located at FullMoonStreaming.comFilmmakers will then promote their film and share it with cast, crew, friends and family, encouraging them to sign up for a minimum three-month term to FullMoonStreaming.com (a rate of only $18.00).  As soon as the filmmaker signs up just 50 people, he or she will automatically receive a $2,500.00 advance and WIZARD Studios/FULL MOON FEATURES will additionally distribute the film on DVD and other high profile digital platforms. The filmmaker will then receive an additional 50% of all sales from said product. receive an additional 50% of all sales from said product.

 

"We're incredibly excited to re-launch Wizard Studios as a portal to spotlight the best in new genre filmmaking talent," said Full Moon Features and Wizard Studios founder and president, Charles Band.

 

"The spirit of Wizard Video was to always champion films that defied the conventions of the mainstream. We're thrilled to be able to provide an outlet to do this again, working with filmmakers from the ground up to nurture and support their vision."
