I recently received an email from Evangelos Giovanis about a new project from the Giovanis Brothers called ‘BEREAVE‘.  This film is set to star the icon Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange), the lovely Neve Campbell (Scream) and the talented JJ Feild (Captain America), but first they need your help.

BEREAVE’ has become Mr. McDowell’s passion project.  Malcolm believes so deeply in this project, that he has become the Executive Producer of the film.

Before I get into how you can help, here is a bit about the film.  ‘BEREAVE‘ is a feature length drama/romance.

Synopsis:

Fatally ill and unable to reveal this secret to his family, Garvey thinks he has figured out how to die alone. Suffering the mortal fears, Garvey’s behavior becomes erratic. But when his beloved wife Evelyn mysteriously goes missing on their anniversary – he must live to save her! In that short time, Garvey realizes what life still has to offer and in following his journey; we do too.

Evangelos and George Giovanis

For those of you that do not know who the Giovanis Brothers are, they are Evangelos and George Giovanis.  They have self-financed all of their film projects by building, working and selling small restaurants.  Critics compare them to early Scorsese, Tarantino, and John Cassavetes.

This may not be a horror film, but the incredible cast is enough to put me behind it.  The Giovanis Brothers have created a KICKSTARTER campaign to group fund this project.  Much like all other campaigns on KICKSTARTER, there are benefits for each level of donation.  You will only be charged if the film reaches its funding goal.

BEREAVE‘ is currently at $38,112 pledged of the $100,00 goal.  This campaign will only be open until October 5, 2013 which leaves only 16 days to help bring Malcolm McDowell, Neve Campbell and JJ Feild together for this incredible film.

If you can not donate, please spread the word! Every little bit helps.

I learned of Truth Or Dare via twitter.  I watched the trailer and I must say that this film certainly shows promise.  Truth Or Dare in my opinion is a bit like the Saw movies, but a lot better.

Truth or Dare is about 6 college students that reach internet stardom because of their videos of their games of Truth Or Dare.   Their game is not like your run of the mill sleepover Truth Or Dare, it’s deadly.

Check out the trailer to this sure to be gorefest:

The Friday the 13th Franchise: Should They Continue?

jasonmask1

The Facebook and twitter worlds have been a buzz about the continuance of the Friday the 13th franchise.  Some questions have bubbled to the surface, do fans want another film?  Who should play Jason?  What direction should the film take?

I absolutely would love to see another Friday the 13th and judging by all of the buzz in the world of social media, I am not alone.  I am a huge fan of the classic Friday the 13th series and was not totally bummed by the remake/re-imagining that came to us in 2009.

Jason Voorhees is without a doubt, one of the creepiest, most intimidating characters to ever grace a movie screen.  With that being said, let’s touch on the question of who should reprise the role of Jason for movie number 12.  In my opinion, and I know many may disagree, but I would love to see the return of Kane Hodder.  To me he was without a doubt the most intimidating actor to don the iconic hockey mask and hack campers with a machete.  Everything from the way he walks, the way he stands, his size and his natural ability to choke and slash people says Jason Voorhees.

As far as the direction, I would love to see them take it back to the old school slasher style.  It would be nice to see less CGI and more props.  I know I know “it would be so corny”, but I for one enjoy seeing the natural abilities of the actors in doing what they are paid to do, act.  I don’t hate CGI, but I prefer to see the stunts and the puppets instead of a bunch of stuff spewed onto a screen from a computer.  I’m not trying to step on anyone’s toes, that is just my opinion. I think a nice, down the middle split of CGI and makeup would be nice for a modern take on such an iconic series.

What are your opinions?  Do you want another movie?  Who should don the mask?  What direction would you like to see it go?

Only time will tell if this is just another campfire ghost story or if Jason will be returning to Camp Crystal Lake.
