Dead Shadows French disk release and signing in Paris, France!

February 26th, 2015 No comments

d-shadows-2

David Cholewa’s DEAD SHADOWS will finally come full circle and be released on disk in its home country of France on April 7th. To celebrate, there will be a signing event with some of the DEAD SHADOWS cast and crew on April 4th at the Metaluna Store (7 rue Dante), which will of course sell the disk, and I am happy to announce that I will be there to partake in the event.

Dead Shadows was directed by David Cholewa, produced by Julien Dunand (and Cholewa) and written by Vincent Jule. It stars Blandine Marmigère, Rurik Sallé, Fabian Wolfrom and myself. Here’s the film’s synopsis:

Dead Shadows tells the terrifying story of a young man, named Chris (Wolfrom), whose parents were brutally killed 11 years ago, on the same day that Halley’s comet could be seen from earth. Tonight, a new comet is appearing and everyone in his building are getting ready for a party to celebrate the event. There’s even an apocalypse theory going around. As the night falls, Chris discovers that people are starting to act strange – and it seems to somehow be connected to the comet. They are becoming disoriented and violent and it doesn’t take long before they begin to mutate into something far beyond this world. In a fight for survival, Chris tries to escape from his building with the help of a gun taunting tenant named John (Fallon) – but will they make it out alive?

Thanks for the joy and the pain 2014, here I come 2015!

Montserrat in Spain. Third time there! Love it!

Montserrat in Spain. Third time there! Love it!

I didn’t do a retrospective of 2013 on this blog, because it just wasn’t worth it. It was a year filled with waste of my time, thick bullshit and negative energy. Not one for the records. A year to forget. But at the end of the year, I had a burning desire to turn it all around and I went back to the basic rule of life. You have to pose an action to get a reaction; nothing will happen unless you prod life to budge…  so that’s what I did.

So in 2014 I “cut myself off” from said BS that ruined 2013 and started off the year by taking a huge risk, putting it all on the line in the name of directing my first film; THE SHELTER. It needs to be said that the film would not have happened without pal and producer Donny Broussard who took on and aced the pre production of the film early on. He and his team got me everything I needed and efficiently at that! I couldn’t have asked for more! Our hard working cast/crew who hustled hard on the shoot and JoBlo Movie Productions who came in and financed the Post Production once the shoot was done also helped make this dream a reality. So thank you all for that, I will never forget it.

da-boysWith Producer Donny Broussard and actor Michael Pare on The Shelter set!

Yup, getting The Shelter done was my highlight of 2014.

I felt alive on that set and in my element if you will. Having a veteran like Michael Pare as a lead was a pleasure (and an education), the Holbrooks were on f-ing fire (loved their on set ethics) and I was finally able to accomplish a dream that I’ve had for over 10 years. So I can stop this retrospective right here! In January of 2014 I finally reached what had been my Holy Grail for eons; I directed my first feature. But ya known what? I feel like babbling, so lets move on!

The rest of 2014 also had more The Shelter, The Shelter and The Shelter in it. Holbrook Multi Media and I took on Post Production duties with the whole of the process taking 8 months (on and off) to bring home.  It was a lot of work (note to self, next film, I have to pay myself), but work is fine when you enjoy what you’re doing. And what really stimulated me was that it was all creative.

Colby-Huvall-John-Fallon-Bobby-HolbrookPost on The Shelter with sound designer Colby Huval and editor Bobby Holbrook!

Locking the cut with editor Bobby Holbrook, working the score with composer Shawn Knippleberg, overseeing the VFX with Thomas Wilson or sitting down with Colby “Road House” Huval to nail that sound design; all mucho stimulating processes, made all that much more easy, being that these were fun fucking guys to work with. Needless to say I learned more about every aspect of filmmaking (and producing…ahhh…producing…  learn from your mistakes Johnny, LEARN!) from The Shelter, than I did in my entire life. That includes film school and the countless sets I have been on. So I will bring all of this new knowledge with me onto the next film (The Shadowing baby!). To say I am a better man for it would be an understatement.

Other than The Shelter, it was swell to see past work come to fruition. David Cholewa’s DEAD SHADOWS ( a sci-fi/action film that I acted in) got its North American release via Scream Factory while Ravi Dhar’s AMERICAN MUSCLE (a film that I wrote and acted in) was unleashed on disk and Netflix via WellGoUsa. Both got good to middle ground to negative reviews but nothing entertained me more than than the “critics” who got their underpants in a bunch over American Muscle’s depiction of slutty women (the film was set in the biker world, not a Royal Wedding). Of course the fact that all the men in the film were all PURE SCUM with our leading man being the biggest SLUT of them all went over their heads but I digress. Highly entertaining reads from my POV. Thank you! needless to say that those were two projects that I am VERY PROUD to be a part of.

am-muscle-trailer-japanAmerican Muscle came out this year! It pissed some people off. That made me happy!

I also planted more seeds in 2014 in the form of two screenplays that I gunned out. I was hired to adapt/translate a french graphic novel into a script and I’m very happy as to how it turned out (I can’t say which novel it is at this stage) and then I was hired to do a polish on another script (initially written by somebody I grew up admiring), which in time wound up basically being a Page 1 rewrite to fit the producer’s wants. I can’t say which script that was either just yet but you’ll all know in due time. So two scripts in the bank and two acting roles on hold as well!

In between all that; I spent some considerable time in LA (always great to see my bro Eric Red and his lovely better half Meredith), I then fled to Spain again for a while (saw my bro Gonzalo there, hiked Montserrat once more, partied with my bud Mike Hostench and the beautiful city that is Barcelona always warms my heart), worked a script at my friend’s beach house (ideal place to write) and I got to experience some Navy Seal training in Washington DC. It was just a TINY taste of it, but I got hooked and I’ll be back to do the whole course when my wallet says I can.

kayak-johnAt home in nature.

In between all of that, I saw all kinds of Habs games live at the Bell Center (all winning games too, thx Bryant and Berge) spent lots of time in nature (nothing makes me happier than being there… nothing), hiking mountains, kayaking, sea-dooing, skiing, snowmobiling,  tree climbing, running and had a memorable booze/hockey fueled party week with my bud Bryant who came down from Australia to let loose. Fun, alcohol laced, weight gaining good times! Always great to see the lad.

Speaking of weight gain; I considerably cut down on my boozing this year. I have been spending more time in the Gym, playing hockey (not as much as I wanted), being in the wild, and more time boxing than in Pubs. I kind of like it that way to be honest It keeps me out of trouble, keeps me fit and really helps in terms of relieving stress. And more importantly – it makes me happy. I’ll be trying out Kickboxing early next year and giving classic boxing a rest for a bit, lets see how it goes!

arrow-gun-1Got a SMALL taste of Navy Seals training! LOVED IT!

2014 wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows though. As much as it was productive and rewarding, it also came with its fair share of hick-ups… such is life.  As opposed to listing all that went wrong, I’ll just list what I learned from it all and what I will bring with me in 2015

-Always back up your work cause you never know when your computer will die on you. I lost 25 pages of a spec script cause of that when my laptop went kaput. And now my PC just went down on me too (that didn’t sound right).

-I’m not a very trusting person by nature. But I was reminded the HARD WAY that mistrust shouldn’t just be applied to the people in your day to day surroundings, it also should be applied to complete strangers. People are fucking nuts out there! You have to watch your back, ALL THE TIME.

-Many are all talk and don’t keep their word, specially in the film biz. Just how it is. I have to deal with it and stop getting so pissed about it. The saying: You scratch my back, I scratch yours should be re-named as: I scratch yours, I scratch yours, I scratch yours.

-The saying: You want something done right, do it yourself, should be re-named as: You want something done, period, do it yourself, period.

hockey-johnPracticing my hockey.

-I fell for the oldest film financing deception in the book in 2014 at the hand of a scumbag “producer”, I was ashamed that after all that I have been through that I fell for such an old trick AGAIN and wasted so much of my time and efforts. It won’t happen again. Stern reminder.

-If you don’t want some nut-job out there to throw your cats in an abandoned pool and drown them to death; don’t let your cats out the house. I lost two of my feline buddies that way this year, and it broke my heart. Then I broke something else…

There’s another end of the year whopper that has already started to change my life and I will address that one when the time is right. Look for a blog entry about it in the near future.

In closing; if 2014 was the year THE SHELTER got made; 2015 will be the year when I find it a HOME! Sales, distribution and Festivals in should be interesting! I’m also excited to take on THE SHADOWING full time and get that bad-boy off the ground! I have a plan. It’s my next film as a director and I’m totally in love with the script. it’s gonna OWN! I  also got other projects up in the air with other people, a couple of acting roles too, but it’s too early for me to feel 100% excited about them i.e. I’ll believe it when it happens. I don’t buy talk – I buy action.

fallon-waterOnward and forward!

Do I have any resolutions? I guess quit Nicotine gum without getting back to cigarettes. Yeah, that would be it. Tough one. I also have a French sports spec script I’ve been wanting to write forever. I think 2015 is the year. Other than that just keep doing what I’m doing; challenge myself, work my butt off and continue to achieve. Oh and keep enjoying life. I’m thankfully a simple man and I don’t need much. Give me a lake to sit by or a mountain to hike and I’m happy as a pig in shit.

To some degree, 2015 will be uncharted territory for me; meaning that basically, my whole life changed in 2014 and now it’s time for me to find out where it goes in 2015. I anticipate lots of traveling and new endeavors that may surprise me. I made all kinds of new film biz connections in 2014 and I hope it leads to more exciting film projects in 2015. Whatever the case, I know I’ll have a good time traveling the path to find out what is in store for me! Successful or not. Rich or poor. I don’t sit on my hands and I always find a way to have a good time :) Here’s my 2015 National Anthem. RISE. :)

Happy New Year everybody! Much love and God bless!

2-sThis one’s ready to rise.

Ravi Dahr’s AMERICAN MUSCLE (film I wrote and co-star in) just got a cool Japanese poster and  a re-cut “hardcore” trailer (both below) and will come out on the big screen in Japan on January 27th 2015 via Klockworx!  So if you’re a Japanese fan, ENJOY! North Americans can get the BLU-RAY and DVD or watch it on INSTANT VIDEO. The film tells the heart-warming tale of:

Screaming across the scarred landscape of the Yucca Valley, Falcon’s got 24 hours to inflict brutal vengeance on everyone he holds responsible for putting him away. Including his own brother.

AMERICAN MUSCLE stars Nick Principe, Todd Farmer, Robin Sydney, George P. Wilbur, Jennifer Wenger and Trent Haaga. It was produced by Snowfort Pictures and Automatic Entertainment.

American Muscle reviews!

November 23rd, 2014 No comments

spotlight-780x347_92

With Ravi Dhar’s AMERICAN MUSCLE now out on disk reviews are hitting the web. Some good, some bad, some downright offended by the film (which always makes me smile, good, get offended, this overtly PC world bores me)! Here are some of them! AMERICAN MUSCLE stars Nick Principe, Todd Farmer, Robin Sydney, George P. Wilbur, Jennifer Wenger, Trent Haaga and my sorry ass.  It was produced by Snowfort Pictures and Automatic Entertainment. It was directed/shot by  Ravi Dhar and written by yours truly.

Twitch: “Smashing, bloody, rude, and often nude, American Muscle captures the rowdy spirit of 70s exploitation movies and transfers it wholesale to the present day, while also instilling a dose of rueful, personal nostalgia. Make no mistake, American Muscle is first and foremost a movie about an incredibly uber-macho, extremely violent criminal — c’mon, he’s named John Falcon! — and the blood he sheds without remorse in his quest for vengeance.”- read the whole review here!

Supermarcey.com: “There is something emotionally hard hitting, in a film filled with serviceable violence and frantic fucking, about a story of a man who is “living with a memory” who finds himself unable to deal with the way things really are. It won’t be everyone’s bag of tea, but if you watch a movie like this it’s because you want what this film definitely delivers, and it does an admirable job in offering up something a bit more in my opinion. ” -read the whole review here!

Moviemet: “This is a film that delves head first into male fantasy and never bothers to come up for air.  Within minutes of the film starting, Falcon gets out of jail and starts hitchhiking, only to be picked up by a nice-looking lady. After the briefest of small talk they have sex in her car on the side of the highway in broad daylight.  In fact, for the remainder of the film, every girl he comes across ogles him with lust in their eyes. ” – Read the whole review here!

FALLON NOTE: I was actually inspired by the Bond movie Octopussy in terms of that angle. All Bond had to do was “show up” and boom women wanted him or/and he’d get laid. I thought it would be funny to do that with our hero Falcon. Alas, not many people got the joke and took it seriously.

Dienachtderlebendentexte (German): “Action // tits. Violence. Coolness. Brawls. Hail of bullets. Sex. Death. Machismo. Dust. Headshots. Asses. Testosterone. Blood. Muscle Cars. Retribution. Feminism. No – that last point was a joke. Replace it with more head shots!” – Read the whole review here!

After Movie Diner: “You can tell when a film is trying too hard because it keeps winking at the audience to get validation that everything they are doing, while gross, is all fine and in the spirit of the thing, whereas American Muscle doesn’t bother with that for one second. It simply doesn’t give a shit what you think. It sets up its situation and plays it out to its logical, tragic and gruesome conclusion.”-read the whole review here

DVD Verdict: “I understand that screenwriter John Fallon set out to write a very specific kind of movie—one in which the men are tough and the women are sexy and everyone leads a violent life. But because it’s all so calculated, there’s something ugly about it. Every single female character in the movie exists to throw themselves at some man (usually Principe, who beds three of the four women in the movie—two of them immediately upon meeting them) with sex that feels angry towards women. The one major female character in the film is a double-crossing thief, murderer in drug addict who lies around in nearly nothing and has sex with every single person near hear, man or woman. I recognize that these movies aren’t meant to be watched politically, but there’s just something repellent about a movie that’s this misogynist—even a deliberate genre exploitation movie. It reminded me of Larry Bishop’s Hell Ride from a few years ago, a movie that managed to be bad in a lot of the same ways as American Muscle. I can handle a movie that’s ugly and nasty and has a dark worldview, but it’s 2014, guys. Let’s try to do better.” – read the whole review here

FALLON NOTE: Everybody is scum in American Muscle, men and woman. The lead male character is a bigger whore than every woman in the film.  My intent was to write a trashy, smutty and nihilistic flick, that’s it, that’s all.

Cinema Masculin: ” Dès le départ, j’ai voulu aimer le long-métrage, qui s’inspire du cinéma d’exploitation des années 70/80, un genre qui est encore utilisé aujourd’hui par plusieurs réalisateurs comme Quentin Tarantino (Plup Fiction). Étant fan de ce genre, il me faut admettre qu’American Muscle remplit bien son rôle à ce titre. À l’exception de quelques éléments technologiques, le scénario aurait pu situer l’action en 1971 sans problèmes. L’histoire est condensée, avec beaucoup de flashbacks permettant au spectateur de souffler un peu pendant le film, qui durent à peine 75 minutes.”-Read the whole review here

TrainmansReviews: “Danny Trejo says, “A movie needs 3 things, Blood, Bullets and Boobs” and this film has plenty of all three. A tale of a bad guy going after some even worse bad guys. That simple!” - Read the whole review here

Movie City News:  Too often, revenge movies get caught up in sentimentality, a protagonist’s pursuit of redemption or the sapping of strength that comes with finding love at a most inconvenient time. They sometimes get tripped up, as well, by making the kind of factual mistakes that are caused by cutting corners and distract viewers from the narrative flow. Ravi Dahr’s unrelenting American Muscle wastes no time whatsoever getting to the point and staying there for its entire 90-minute length. The movie opens with a flashback to a violent crime that occurred 10 years earlier, then quickly takes us inside a prison where, presumably, one of the participants is about to be released. As played by veteran hard guy Nick Principe, John Falcon resembles a walking tattoo parlor. His muscular frame attests to a decade spent in the prison yard lifting weights and consuming steroids smuggled into the facility with marijuana, heroin and cellphones by guards and guests. It doesn’t take long to realize that Falcon is a man on a violent mission. After catching a ride with a woman who happily quenches all 10 years’ worth of his sublimated lust, Falcon is asked if he’d like to have her phone number. No, he replies, “I’ll probably be dead in 24 hours.”

Indeed, every hour of the next 24 is spent tracking down his brother, who betrayed him, and the wife he left behind when he was captured and went to prison. Falcon’s also vowed to kill the other gang members who avoided arrest and split up his spoils. He wastes no time doing just that. Writer John Fallon adds several more expository flashbacks and a few scenes in which crank whores are required to go topless, but, again, they don’t impede the forward trajectory of the story or keep Falcon from a final reunion with his brother. I’m usually not overly impressed by revenge pictures, especially those so obviously made on a limited budget.American Muscle managed to hold my interest, however, despite a deluge of wholly gratuitous bloodshed. (Gratuitous nudity is something else entirely.) It helps greatly that Dahr took advantage of the beauty and desolation of the desert near 29 Palms. Nothing says “meth labs” and “psycho-bikers” quite as eloquently as a drive through the giant “wind farms” outside Palm Springs.

YesWeekly: AMERICAN MUSCLE (Well Go USA Entertainment): Director/editor/cinematographer/music supervisor Ravi Dhar’s debut feature is a familiar revenge melodrama that sees ex-con Nick Principe embarking on a 24-hour rampage against those who wronged him, especially brother Todd Farmer. It’s familiar but fast-moving and full of gratuitous nudity and CGI violence. Co-star John Fallon is also scripted. – Read the whole review here

The Action Elite“American Muscle is essentially the ultimate male fantasy movie with fast cars, naked women and exploding heads. As long as you don’t go in looking for anything too deep then you might just have a blast. Really all you need to do is bring the beer.” - Read the whole review here.

Docteur No Review: “It’s raining blood, neurons and enough seminal fluids to fill the lungs … a fucking guilty pleasure! It’s like Tarantino on crack!”

Ravi Dhar nous plonge dans le nawak létal… AMERICAN MUSCLE est une divine agonie Z… Un torrent, à la fois décérébré et romantique, de nichons fatigués, de tatouages délirants, de gunfights vénères, de fratricides trisomiques et d’amour impossible… Comme une version sous crack de Tarantino

Un gros dur à moustache taciturne qui se prend pour Clint Eastwood (alors qu’il ressemble plutôt à un membre des Village People en tournée) sort de taule après 10 ans d’enfer… Il va se lancer dans une vendetta aussi et sanguinaire que grindhouse… Et accessoirement dans un remake mou du révolutionnaire POINT DE NON RETOUR à John Boorman. Mais version crade et vulgaire… Über vulgaire. Comme si la culture white trash (vivent les gros guns, les gros nichons, les grosses guitares assourdissantes et les grosses doses de crystal meth) se métamorphosait en parangon de subversion!

Et ben… En poussant tous les curseurs de la bienséance au delà des limites de l’entendement humain, l’inconnu Ravi Dhar nous plonge dans le nawak létal… AMERICAN MUSCLE est une divine agonie Z… Un torrent, à la fois décérébré et romantique, de nichons fatigués, de tatouages délirants, de gunfights vénères, de fratricides trisomiques et d’amour impossible… Comme une version sous crack de Tarantino (coucou KILL BILL 2). Et Ravi Dhar filme cette folie avec une sérieux et un minimalisme enthousiasmant. Résultat, on s’attache à ce héros vengeur et à ses aventures sanguinolentes… Il pleut du sang, des neurones et du liquide séminal à s’en remplir les poumons… Un putain de plaisir coupable. Ça c’est de la série B, bien plus noire qu’elle en a l’air, qui envoie les bichons! Et vive l’amour… Ça fait faire que des conneries! Notamment des séries z dérérébrées…

Blood Rave aka Trance art and TV Spot!

November 6th, 2014 No comments

blood-rave
My ever lasting quest to see TRANCE, a film that was shot in 2007 with Dominique Swain, Brea Grant, Madeline Zima and Jeremy London from a script that I wrote and sold, continues! It seems that they renamed the film to BLOOD RAVE (as per this TV Spot I just found, see it below) and that it premiered on FEARNET last year. If anybody has a copy of this film; hook me up please! No matter how bad it may be, I need to see it on principle. It’s unfinished business for me. I’ll never let it go till I see the fucking thing.

American Muscle gets out of the pen today on DVD and Blu-Ray!

Falcon is out and ready to cash in!

Ravi Dahr’s AMERICAN MUSCLE is finally unleashed today on BLU-RAY and DVD in all of its unrated glory! You can also watch it on INSTANT VIDEO. The film tells the heart-warming tale of:

John Falcon (Nick Principe) is a bad, bad man. But he didn’t deserve to go to prison. Now, after 10 years of hard time, he’s hell-bent on revenge. Screaming across the scarred landscape of the Yucca Valley, Falcon’s got 24 hours to inflict brutal vengeance on everyone he holds responsible for putting him away. Including his own brother.

In my opinion Director and DP RAVI DHAR gave the material a fresh spin via his stylized visuals.While I was on set all I kept thinking was this is gonna look like a Cannon film meets David Lynch meets Mad Max. And upon seeing the end result; yup, I was pretty much right.

americanmuscle-thumb-630xau

Like I’ve said before, this was one of the most enjoyable shoots I’ve ever been on, one of the most collaborative and is definitely the most memorable.  I am proud of all that we accomplished and of the film itself. Some will dig it, some won’t, just how it goes. My advice; crack open a beer and just have fun. It’s that kind of movie! Brutal, smutty and trashy with an artsy streak.

AMERICAN MUSCLE stars Nick Principe, Todd Farmer , Robin Sydney, George P. Wilbur, Jennifer Wenger, Trent Haaga and I play mute badass Tongues in it.  It was produced by Snowfort Pictures and Automatic Entertainment. It was  written by yours truly.

New American Muscle trailer and first review!

September 3rd, 2014 No comments

Distributors WellGoUSA have unleashed a new and “safer” trailer for AMERICAN MUSCLE (order the Blu-Ray here) and you can see it below! A first review also surfaced at Filmstarts; it’s in German; here are a couple of choice quotes, roughly translated:

“Here heads are not just blown away, but also have their tongues bitten out and then trampled flat with coarse boots. This is already so over-the-top that one “American Muscle” can not really be taken seriously. But the special pleasure is that it is told nevertheless seriously.”

“Committed to the spirit of the old B-movies is writer and actor John Fallon (“Death Race”), who tackled the greatest difficulty in conceiving a sleek story structure with an absolute maximum of Sex and Violence.”

The full review is here. Google Translate at will!

AMERICAN MUSCLE stars genre vets Nick Principe, Todd Farmer, Robin Sydney, George P. Wilbur, Jennifer Wenger, Trent Haaga and my sorry ass.  It was produced by Snowfort Pictures and Automatic Entertainment. It was directed/shot by the uber talented Ravi Dhar, written by me and bettered by all the creative talent involved. This one was definitely a TEAM SPORT. I am proud of this one, and along with how The Shelter is shaping up; that’s two for two – I am f-ing happy right now.

SoundonSight.org interview. I talk The Shelter and more!

May 8th, 2014 No comments

I was recently interviewed by SOUNDONSIGHT.ORG about THE SHELTER and my background. Read an excerpt below and the whole thing HERE

As for The Shelter, Fallon has remained vague as to plot details. “And I will continue to be.” Currently in post-production, Shelter finds character actor Michael Pare as a homeless drifter who wanders into an empty house. He’s “basically a scumbag, living with regrets and self-loathing. He’s a vagrant. One night, he comes upon this house. He makes himself at home. Falls asleep, wakes up in the morning with a gun in his lap. At that point, it becomes a mystery, without spoiling too much.” What has surprised friends and family who have read the script, given Fallon’s love of gore, is the lack thereof. Rather, he has focused on a the psychological aspects of horror.

Thanks for having me!
