Watch the exclusive teaser for LIKE ME

LIKE ME premieres at SXSW Monday, March 13th at the Stateside Theater!

From Screen Anarchy:

The internet can be a weird and dark place, which is something I think anybody who has spent any amount of time online can agree on. How much online culture will grow to shape society versus how much society shapes online culture is still something to be seen played out around us but as we see a generation now reaching maturity having spent their entire lives inundated in broadband video and social media it’s clear enough that it’s doing something to us. And what that thing may be is very much the subject of Robert Mockler’s striking debut feature Like Me.

MOST BEAUTIFUL ISLAND on No Film School’s must-see SXSW list

First-time writer-director Ana Asensio’s Most Beautiful Island is a movie you won’t easily forget. The psychological thriller follows a day in the life of an undocumented immigrant woman trying to make ends meet in New York. She decides to take an odd job to get herself out of financial straits, but when she shows up, she’s forced into a dangerous underground world in which her life hangs by a delicate thread. Shot in gritty Super-16, the film intimately captures the desperation and ignominy facing many American immigrants. – Emily Buder

EW has a New Trailer for POD!

EW has a brand new trailer for the Mickey Keating directed POD, starring Dean Cates, Lauren Ashley Carter, and Brian Morvant, featuring Fessenden.

From the EW breakdown:

Where would the horror genre be without creepy woods and basements? We don’t know—and, fortunately, it’s not something we have to worry about.

That brings us to the creepy woods-and-basement-featuring trailer for the new, SXSW-screened horror movie, Pod. Written and directed by Mickey Keating, the film stars Dean Cates and Lauren Ashley Carter as siblings whose veteran brother, played by Brian Morvant, believes he has a secured a sinister being of some sort in the basement of their family’s remote lakehouse in Maine.

The film also features the always watchable indie-horror nabob Larry Fessenden and will be released to select theaters and on VOD, Aug. 28.

Read On for the trailer and an awesome new poster!

WE ARE STILL HERE Review: “Entertaining Chiller”

wearestillhere

“genre fans with a sense of history should make this entertaining chiller a sought-after item for midnight slots, and a welcome pickup for specialty home-format distribbers.”

“A rare horror exercise whose characters are nearly all well into middle age, “We Are Still Here” introduces the Sacchettis as they drive toward their new home in upstate New York in the dead of winter. Both are grieving the recent loss of their only child, Bobby, in a car accident, but hope the move will provide some distance from that tragedy for Anne (Barbara Crampton, “Re-Animator”) in particular, who’s clearly suffering from major depression. To the dismay of her husband, Paul (Andrew Sensenig), however, she immediately claims to feel Bobby’s “presence” in their new digs.”

Critics Dig WE ARE STILL HERE at SXSW

The reviews are coming in for WE ARE STILL HERE, directed by GEP pal Ted Geoghegan, starring Barbara Crampton and Andrew Sensenig and featuring Lisa Marie, Fessenden, and Monte Markham!

“Geoghegan lets loose and delivers a satisfying and chilling climax
while balancing the gore and tension nicely.

…Crampton and Sensenig make for a believable couple.
They’re both wounded and dealing with it in different ways.
…As always, Larry Fessenden delivers a rock solid performance with finely tuned comedic beats.”
– Patrick Cooper, BLOODY-DISGUSTING

“Geoghegan establishes what seems to be a simple haunted house set-up
but adds complications which make the outcome less predictable…

The pleasantly mature Crampton and Sensenig underplay sensitively, giving a little depth to their plight.
…an afternoon séance raises the wrong ghost, allowing Fessenden
to do an impressive possessed act, and the film starts to take after the gorier efforts of the 1980s”
– Kim Newman,
 SCREEN DAILY

“We Are Still Here is the first incredibly scary and pure horror film of 2015.
There’s just nothing out there like it, and there hasn’t been in quite some time.
…We all should consider ourselves lucky that Barbara Crampton decided to resume her acting career
because this lady brings a lot to the table that’s been sorely missing.
with solid performances from the always great Larry Fessenden,
the wonderfully odd Lisa Marie, and the ever-frazzled Andrew Sensenig;
and we have a winner here, folks.”

– Steve Barton, DREAD CENTRAL 

“Writer/producer Ted Geoghegan makes an assured directorial debut
with the stylish and mesmerizing WE ARE STILL HERE.
…it’s an absolute pleasure to see Barbara Crampton, Andrew Sensenig, Monte Markham,
and Larry Fessenden deliver note-perfect performances in substantial roles.”
– Peter Martin, TWITCH FILM

“It takes a special film and one that offers something different to the table
to not only revive the interest of the horror viewer, but the subgenre as a whole.
Thankfully, Ted Geoghegan’s WE ARE STILL HERE
is not only that something different that the genre needs,

but is also a wildly original and terrifyingly entertaining ride,
sure to be the most memorable genre film of the year.
…Lisa Marie and Larry Fessenden give two great performances as May and Jacob,
with Fessenden providing one of the scariest scenes in the entire film.”
– Jerry Smith, ICONS OF FRIGHT

“what elevates WE ARE STILL HERE even further is the way it manages,
from first line to very last,
 to imbue its exploration of the outer extremes of darkness and horror
with a real poignancy, heart and humanity.”

– Shawn Macomber, FANGORIA

Really enjoyed ‘s Fulci-inspired chiller WE ARE STILL HERE,
which as a bonus has the best Fessenden performance since HABIT.

Austin Chronicle on WE ARE STILL HERE

With all the buzz of SXSW swirling, the Austin Chronicle wrote up a great piece about GEP pal Ted Geoghegan, director of WE ARE STILL HERE (starring Fessenden)!

Excerpted From The Austin Chronicle:

“When I moved out to New York, I had quite a few people here meet me and be surprised. They’d say, ‘I know who you are. Who’s your publicist? I don’t feel like I should know you from any of the projects you’ve been involved with, so you must have a really good publicist.’ Well, I don’t, so I guess I’m my own publicist.”

We Are Still Here follows a middle-aged couple (Barbara Crampton and Andrew Sensenig) who move to a rural New England community to heal after the accidental death of their son. However, the Victorian house they have bought comes with dark and terrible secrets, and they soon realize that they may not be alone in their grief.

…As for the role of May’s husband, that part was written for another personal friend: Larry Fessenden, the uncrowned king of New York indie horror. While literally dozens of directors have given the writer/producer/director cameo parts in their films, Geoghegan envisioned something more for Fessenden. “He’s an immensely talented actor, and he has just such an expressive, incredible face, and I just wanted him to have a big, meaty role. If I had it my way, in my next movie, I’d have him in every frame of the thing.”
