It just screened at the Filmets – Festival Internacional de Badalona and now it just got accepted at the Malta International Film Festival.And what makes it even more exciting for me, FINALLY, it will be the Fallon approved FINAL CUT that is screened. Due to bad luck and mis-communications, only the first cut of OLD NUMBER 7 has be screened so far, so now peeps will be able to see it the way it was intended. There is a Lord! OLD NUMBER 7 stars this jerk, the sexy Saida Lamas and the talented Sergio Bernal. It was written by Gonzalo Lopez and myself. The flick was produced by Sweet Water Pictures, Aved Productions and my company Fallon productions. Dates and time when I get them!

After its recent FANTASIA screening, I was calling it a day on my short film THE RED HOURS Festival run. Its gotta end sometimes, and I just want to slap it on DVD for sale and move the fuck on already. But looks like fate had other plans for it. The Red Hours has been selected in competition at the Cinefantasy International Film Festival (August 31st to September 12th) in Sao Paulo Brazil. Brazil…hmmm… always wanted to go there. Food for thought. More news when I get some in terms of screening dates. The Red Hours aka the short even my mother doesn’t understand stars Deke Richards, Amy Wickenheiser and Heather Westwood. Donny Broussard produced with me. The flick was edited by Michael Nouryeh and Christian Viel and mixed by Benoit Babin.
The short film I did with Gonzalo Lopez; our ode to giallos OLD NUMBER 7(see trailer here) didn’t get as much press as say The Red Hours or Deaden but that doesn’t mean I am not proud of it (still needs a pro sound mix IMO though) and it continues trucking on. The flick has just been selected in the 35th edition of Filmets – Festival Internacional de Badalona. It will be in competition. The film will be screened on November 12, at 21:00, in the Zorrilla Theater, C/Canonge Baranera, 17; as part of the International Fiction Competion. Get more INFO HERE cabrones! OLD NUMBER 7 stars my sorry ass, the sexy Saida Lamas and the talented Sergio Bernal. It was written by Gonzalo Lopez and myself. The flick was produced by Sweet Water Pictures, Aved Productions and this twat.
They say that you are never a prophet in your home town, I say it can take a while. Our little indie action flick DEADEN which was shot in Montreal with a story set in Montreal, is finally available to buy in fucking Montreal, behind the clock in terms of some of the rest of the world which has been distributing it since 2007 or so. There it is (along with SV Bell’s Crawler) at Archambault downtown, as it should be. Props to SV Bell and Christian Viel 4 making it happen. PS: Deaden is also available on Netflix for my US pals.
It took long (over 3 years) but our little indie that could DEADEN will finally hit the streets in its home town of Montreal, Quebec (the film was shot in Montreal and set in Montreal) next week in participating Archambault retailers and Metro Video through the Black Flag label. The film is rated 16+ for strong violence, the lowest rating the film ever got, gotta love Quebec. DEADEN was written and co produced by myself; I also star in the flick. It was directed, produced and edited by Christian Viel. It co stars: Deke Richards, Anna Jaeger and Neil Napier. Here is the synopsis:
After his vicious crew discovers his secret life as an undercover cop, biker Rane (John Fallon) is forced to witness the brutal murder of his pregnant wife before the gang puts an arrow through his head and leaves him for dead. There’s only problem for the murderous biker gang: Rane miraculously wakes up in a hospital bed. Armed with firepower and loaded up on painkillers, the heartbroken yet reinvigorated madman heads out on a merciless vengeance quest.
After a rough cut screened at Sitges 2008, a win at the One Night of Horror Fest in 2009 and a US premiere at Pollygrind 2010, our little flick The Red Hours comes home, yup the short will have its Canadian premiere at Montreal’s best: The Fantasia Film Festival (date and time TBA). Unless that Brazilian Fest I submitted it to accepts it, this will be the last Fest RH will screen at. After that I will make the little dittie available on DVD and for download. The Red Hours stars Deke Richards, Amy Wickenheiser and Heather Westwood. Donny Broussard produced with me. The flick was edited by Michael Nouryeh and Christian Viel and mixed by Benoit Babin. Here’s its synopsis for shits and giggles:
A quiet war is transpiring between lovers Mark (Deke Richards) and Natasha (Amy Wickenheiser). The more mature and old fashion fashioned Mark can’t come to terms with his better half being bisexual hence is constantly feeling resentful. On her end, Natasha feels un-accepted by her man, consequently finding comfort in the arms of her girlfriend Drew (Heather). One fateful night, at a lowly dive bar, the conflict between the two finally explodes, resulting in a soiree of blood and bullets.
My short film THE RED HOURS will have it US premiere tonight at 8 p.m. via the POLLYGRIND FEST in Las Vegas. The fim will play just before fellow Canucks Jen Soska & Sylvia Soska’s “Dead Hooker in a Trunk” (great title). Get tickets HERE. If ya see the film, shoot me an e-mail with your feedback, good or bad, I can take it. Hope yall dig! The Red Hours stars Deke Richards, Amy Wickenheiser and Heather Westwood. Donny Broussard produced with me. The flick was edited by Michael Nouryeh and Christian Viel and mixed by Benoit Babin. A rough cut screened at Sitges 2008 and the film won at the One Night of Horror Fest in 2009.
