MONDO’S DEATH WALTZ RECORDING COMPANY IS READY TO KICK ASS
WITH THE RELEASE OF THE “THEY LIVE” SOUNDTRACK ON VINYL
Featuring An Eye-Opening Collectible Package Design From Artist Alan Hynes
 Grab your sunglasses, your bubblegum, and your shotgun as Death Waltz Recording Company is bringing back John Carpenter and Alan Howarth's brilliant score to They Live. The soundtrack will go on sale January 30, 2019 at MondoTees.com.
A classic story of one man fighting for the freedom of the world with a great science fiction twist, the movie is full of amazing dialogue and also contains the greatest fistfight in the history of cinema. Like most of Carpenter's films, They Live has an urban western feel to it, which is emphasised by the infectious score.
Celebrated designer and artist Alan Hynes has crafted a spectacular collectible package for the soundtrack befitting the film’s theme of subliminal communication, utilizing the iconic sunglasses to reveal hidden messages as you pull the disc sleeve from the slip case.
They Live is as relevant now as it was when it was first released in 1988, maybe even more so. We are thrilled to be re-issuing the soundtrack of this iconic and important film,” said Mondo & Death Waltz Recording Company’s Head of Music, Spencer Hickman.
Carpenter and Howarth's main theme conjures up images of a lone cowboy entering town, with the main melody augmented with the sounds of harmonica and saxophone. There's a carefree attitude which reflects Rowdy Roddy Piper's character, but the score takes on a more sinister tone when he realises he doesn't know anything about what's really going on. Carpenter's signature synth tones create an uncomfortable atmosphere, but the main bassline is always fighting against them, never giving up. Electric guitar is used fleetingly, but brilliantly, and the whole score embodies the kind of rebelling against authority Carpenter is famous for. They Live will rock your world without the need for a Brazilian plastic surgeon to put you back together again.

BLUMHOUSE INSPIRED, CONTINUANCE PICTURES WANT TO YOUR HORROR MOVIE

BLUMHOUSE-INSPIRED CONTINUANCE PICTURES WANT TO MAKE YOUR HORROR MOVIE!

Continuance Pictures, producers of the upcoming horror film ISOLATION, have announced a new film initiative - that could help budding filmmakers get their film off the ground!

The 'CONTINUE' initiative has been inspired and encouraged by horror maestro Jason Blum.

Continuances Tristan Barr and David Gim were speaking to Blum (“Halloween”, “The Purge”) at the recent Busan Film Market where he inspired the prolific producing unit to get a film fund going.

“Jason gave us incredible advice on shooting with low budgets and testing contents with short films”, says Barr, co-founder of the company.

The chat led to a new film initiative, in which budding filmmakers will have the chance to produce their own short with feature film or TV series potential. At the same time, the company has also announced a new horror movie, which Barr will helm.

Through their new initiative, Continuance Pictures will foster the untapped creativity of new writers, directors and producers by assisting them in the development and production of a film through a short film initiative.

“The initiative is a pragmatic approach to filmmaking in the digital age”, says Barr, whose film ‘’Watch the Sunset’’ was one of the most celebrated Australian films of 2017. ‘’The initiative will connect emerging talent to the film industry and other creatives through investment and opportunity.’’

Continuance Pictures is a global company, with connections in Asia and Australia - they are a partner of former CAA and Sierra Infinity fixture Ina Petersen, who last year launched Inner Voice Artists, a Los Angeles-based international management and production company, and are currently working with Korean partners on “Isolation”, a horror story which Barr will also write and direct.

“Isolation” tells of the lone survivor of a plane crash who encounter a demon being while lost in the wilderness.

Continuance Pictures launches the “Continue” short film initiative this month, offering emerging talent the opportunity to prove themselves on the world stage. With an aim to inspire innovation and harness the potential of the current media landscape, the new studio will foster a creative culture in which bold choices are rewarded.

“As a filmmaker, there is nothing worse than receiving a “rejection letter” and not understanding why. Through this process the team at Continuance Pictures we are attempting to provide feedback to applicants to build working relationships and ongoing opportunities for the future.”

The short film initiative assists in the creation of acclaimed short films and their submission to film festivals around the world. These short films can then be used as a proof of concept, convincing larger studios and investors of the potential of related feature-length films, television series and franchises.

Adds Barr, “As I have learnt with Watch the Sunset, momentum is such an integral part of the process of surviving in this business. We will be capitalizing on festival screenings with meetings in the marketplace with the already developed feature script of the project.”

‘’Watch the Sunset’’ was an 83 minute, one-shot, low-budget feature film that Barr wrote and directed and was highly-regarded at festivals and was named one of the top 5 films of the year by local critics. Barr says “Creating low budget short films empowers creatives by giving them creative control and the chance to prove themselves on the world stage.”

Continuance Pictures plans to support local and international creators through their short film production initiative. The purpose of the ‘Continue’ Short Film Initiative is to create acclaimed short films that can be used as a proof of concept for feature-length productions and franchises.

The initiative allows larger studios to grasp the potential of a project and the creators. Writers, directors and producers can submit their projects via the Continuance Pictures website.

“Continuance Pictures are strong supporters of diversity in the media, and this is reflected in our selection process,” explains Gim. Each submission is reviewed and judged based on a range of criteria, including diversity, creativity, originality, and budget considerations.

Continuance Pictures are looking to offer qualified, high-concept proposals up to $10,000 to spend on the production’s budget. Writers, directors and producers who have bold and innovative ideas are invited to submit their scripts to the Continue Short Film Initiative via the Continuance Pictures website before 5 pm AEDT on the 1st of February 2019.

The Official Sizzle Reel

THE FINAL TRAILER FOR "WRETCH" HAS BEEN UNLEASHED BEFORE ITS DEBUT THIS MONTH

 The final trailer for Wretch has been unleashed in anticipation of the film’s digital and OnDemand release on January 29. Described as "The Blair Witch Project on acid," the psychological horror/thriller stars Spencer Korcz, Megan Massie, and Riker Hill.
         

The plot follows three friends struggling to piece together fractured memories after a drug-fueled night in the woods. In the process, they’re forced to confront guilt, jealousy, and a supernatural presence that threatens to expose their true natures.

A laser-focused exercise in creeping terror, Wretch tackles dark and topical issues while building a constant sense of mystery and dread. Fans of the movie will have the opportunity to chat with the filmmakers live in conjunction with its January 29 release.

“This is a movie that begs to be discussed,” says producer Nic Brown. “So we’re throwing our WTF Online Release Party where people can tweet @WretchMovie on Twitter or join the Facebook event and have the entire cast and crew respond in real time.”

Wretch is written and directed by Brian Cunningham, whose previous films include the horror-comedy Overtime, the acclaimed haunted house documentary Monsters Wanted, and the recent Loss Prevention, starring former WWE Superstar Al Snow and veteran actor Vernon Wells (Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior, Commando).

“We wanted to make something that is as much about the characters and their life situation as it is about the monster,” states Cunningham. “The focus is on dread and a sense of doom as this monster gets closer and closer, and you start to unravel the story bit by bit. I think there will be some genuine surprises for even the most jaded horror fan.”

The movie mixes found footage with cinematic elements to create a world of shifting perspectives and ever-changing reality.

“The visual approach we took was really unique,” says Cunningham. “From the first frame, we wanted to be in these characters’ heads, and it’s a dark and conflicted place to be. The result is a movie that feels rough and real, where you aren’t really sure where reality ends and delusion begins. It was really exciting to reject the traditional approach to filmmaking and focus on what is right to bring people into this intense story.”

Wretch will be released on digital and OnDemand on January 29 via ThoughtFly Films. It's available for pre-order on iTunes.

The Wretch WTF Online Release Party begins at 6pm EST/9pm PST on January 29. Fans can tweet to @WretchMovie with #WretchMovie or join the Facebook event page to interact with cast, crew, and other viewers in real time.
