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

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.

Here’s who will be there thus far: Co Writer, Director and Co Producer David Cholewa, fellow actors Rurik Salle and Fabian Wolfrom, editor César Ducasse and producer Julien Dunand

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?

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

teaserbox_21062888
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.

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.

David Cholewa’s DEAD SHADOWS is finally getting its north American release via SCREAM FACTORY on April 29, 2014 (two days after my b-day)! I play badass John in the film.

Dead Shadows is about:

Dead Shadows tells the terrifying story of Chris (Fabian Wolfrom), whose parents were brutally killed 11 years ago, on the same day that the Halley’s comet could be seen from earth. Tonight, a new comet is appearing and everyone in Chris’s building is getting ready for a party to celebrate the event. As the night falls, Chris discovers that people are starting to act strangely. They are becoming disoriented and violent and it doesn’t take long before they begin to mutate into something far beyond recognition! In a fight for survival, Chris tries to escape from his building with the help of a gun-toting tenant (John Fallon – Death Race, Saw Ii) – but will they make it out alive?

Dead Shadows interview at SM.com!

I was recently interviewed at SM.com in support of DEAD SHADOWS July 22nd Australian release via Gryphon Entertainment  (on DVD and Blu-ray 3D), You can read  an excerpt from the interview below and READ THE WHOLE THING HERE! Thanks to SM.com for the support!

Marcey: The role is one that appears to have been quite demanding physically and mentally, how did you prepare for that?

John: Physically I trained hard before the shoot to gain some mass. But once I got to Paris four weeks before the shoot, finding a Gym to sustain what I had gained was impossible (long story). So I figured, if I can’t retain the mass, I may as well be lean for the role. So protein shakes, red wine and French sausages became my diet. And crunches and push ups my work-out .

Mentally; what I liked about the character was that I had lots of room to create. On paper, all we knew about him was that he was a tough guy and owned lots of weapons. So I invented a back-story for him (I gave him a military background for example) which I often went back to in my head as to the WHY behind his actions.

Dead Shadows was directed by David Cholewa and written by Vincent Jule. It stars Fabian Wolfrom, Blandine Marmigère, Rurik Sallé 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.
