Uncork’d Entertainment President Keith Leopard says he’s excited to be involved in what’s sure to be one of the horror highlights of early 2017.

“It’s good to be back in business with Justin – who we worked with on the successful distribution of THE CLOTH, DARK MOON RISING and FORSAKEN. I think it will be a highlight for horror fans when we release it early next year!”.

Writer-Director Justin Price says "Uncork'd Entertainment has revolutionized independent cinema and there is no other outfit more fitting for THE 13THFRIDAY then in their hands. We were very excited they decided to handle the worldwide rights to the film.”

Uncork'd Entertainment will represent THE 13TH FRIDAY at AFM in November.

When a female refugee discovers an ancient demonic device that opens the gateway to another realm, she unleashes a dark entity that poses as her daughter.  After many failed attempts to have the church explain the creation of her worst nightmares, she learns that the house is cursed by an enraged spirit that died on Friday the 13th. And now a group of thrill seeking friends unknowingly unleash its wrath and damn their souls.

DOOMED! THE UNTOLD STORY OF ROGER CORMAN’S THE FANTASTIC FOUR

Highly-anticipated documentary DOMED! THE UNTOLD STORY OF ROGER CORMAN’S THE FANTASTIC FOUR, from writer-director Marty Langford, will be distributed in the US and Canada by Uncork’d Entertainment. 

Chronicling the history of Roger Corman’s Fantastic Four (1994), DOOMED! features never before seen footage from the production as well as new on-camera interviews with cast and crew including Mr. Corman, Jay Underwood, Michael Bailey Smith, Joseph Culp, Alex Hyde-White and Rebecca Staab.
Langford says DOOMED! was “courted by a number of distributors and he had the luxury of choice.  But once Keith at Uncork’d explained his company’s vision and strategy for our film, we realized that he was obviously the right one. He’s a terrific guy, a great distributor, and partner that we’re lucky to have.”
Uncork’d Entertainment President Keith Leopard says he’s excited to be releasing the definitive account of the never-released movie production and its Fantastic background.

“The average moviegoer doesn’t know that, ten years before releasing Tim Story’s version, Roger Corman was asked to produce a Fantastic Four movie. Unbeknownst to cast and crew, the film was never going to be released though – and for a variety of reasons. Doomed! is such a compelling documentary - and not just for comic book movies but anyone intrigued by the ins and outs of Hollywood and business. In short, it’s a Fantastic movie.”

Leopard’s enthusiasm for the film won producer Mark Sikes over.

"The reason Marty and I chose Uncork'd was Keith's passion for the film. He had a great reputation, but what really impressed us was how passionate he was about the film. We could tell he really liked the film and we knew we needed someone who understood it wasn't your typical documentary."

Uncork'd Entertainment will release DOOMED! THE UNTOLD STORY OF ROGER CORMAN’S THE FANTASTIC FOUR on VOD 10/11 and DVD on 12/20.

Birdsall, Corbin doing time-traveling Hitler sci-fi THE TIME WAR!

Award-winning actors Tracey Birdsall and Barry Corbin are filming The Time War, writer-director Neil Johnson’s long gestating science-fiction thriller that went into development back in 2010. The film features the legendary Christopher Lee (Lord of the Rings, Star Wars : Attack of the Clones) in one of his final screen roles. 
 
Originally written in 1995, The Time War fixes on the thrilling, entertaining scenario that imagines Adolf Hitler travelling back in time and rewriting history. “Next imagine you try and stop him and make matters much worse…”
 
Birdsall, who this year stars in Johnson’s highly-anticipated Rogue Warrior : Robot Fighter, is a favorite of Neil Johnson.
 
“Tracey is one of the most versatile and talented actresses of our times. She’s going to blow everyone away with her performance in Rogue Warrior: Robot Fighter, so we wanted to keep the party going – and excitement from the audience to see more of her – by fashioning this follow-up as a real showcase for her.”
 
Johnson is also a long-time fan of acclaimed actor Corbin, whose many credits include The Thorn Birds, No Country for Old Men, Norma Raeand TV hits Northern Exposure and Anger Management.
“This is a man that can do anything – evoke great laughter, spur tears, have you rooting for him - and audiences are going to go nuts for him here. We’ve written a fantastic part for Barry.” 
 
For Corbin, it’s a return to the sci-fi genre. The Texas-born actor’s previous genre efforts include such classics as WarGames and Critters 2 and TV’s The Twilight Zone
 
Birdsall and Corbin worked together on Dawn of the Crescent Moon - which snared the coveted Best Ensemble Cast Award at Action on Film Festival, rapidly becoming one of the most reputable independent film festivals in the world.
 
Filmmaker Johnson was so sure that the film would get made one day that in November of 2010, he paid Sir Christopher Lee to record an opening narration while at Abbey Road studios on other business.  Johnson didn’t realize that this would be the last time that he would see the acclaimed actor, who passed in 2015.
 
"Mr Lee had killed a number of Nazis during WW2, so it was very apt that the great Nazi Hunter gave his great talent to this wonderfully unique film,” said Johnson.
