Synopsis:

Crescent Bay is not the ideal place to spend one’s golden years, especially since the once-idyllic retirement community has been beset by a series of deadly animal attacks from the ominous forest surrounding it. When grizzled war veteran Ambrose McKinley (Nick Damici) is forced into moving there by his yuppie son Will (Ethan Embry), the residents immediately take offense to Ambrose’s abrasive personality.  But that take-no-prisoners attitude may be just what Ambrose needs to survive as it becomes clear that the attacks are being caused by creatures that are neither animal nor man, and that the tight-knit community of Crescent Bay is hiding something truly sinister in its midst…

Following the release of his Here Comes The Devil, as well as his scene-stealing segment “B is For Bigfoot” in the horror anthology The ABCs of Death, Adriån Garcîa Bogliano cements his status as one of the top horror filmmakers coming out of Spain with LATE PHASES.  In a bookend of sorts to his performance in the cult hit Stake Land, Nick Damici commands the screen here, coming on the heels of last year’s Sundance vigilante thriller Cold In July and the critically acclaimed cannibal drama, We Are What We Are.

TRT: 95 minutes
Country: USA
Language: English

Genre: Thriller

 

LATE PHASES WILL BE RELEASED THEATRICALLY @ THE IFC CENTER IN NEW YORK STARTING NOVEMBER 21ST WITH SELECT THEATERS TO FOLLOW

‘Hacktivist’ Team Goes on a ‘Joyride’ with New Archaia Original Series
from Bill, October 21st, 2014 9:20 pm, comic book

‘Hacktivist’ Team Goes on a ‘Joyride’ with New Archaia Original Series

October 21,  2014 (Los Angeles, Calif.) – As first revealed in the AT&T U-Verse documentary “Comic Book Artists: Next Generation,” about the Toronto-based collective artists studio, the Royal Academy of Illustration and Design (also known as RAID Studios), award-winning publisher BOOM! Studios is pleased to announce Joyride,an upcoming original series from its Archaia imprint created by the Hacktivist team of artist Marcus To and writers Collin Kelly and Jackson Lanzing.

Based on an idea To had when he was in high school, the project was developed jointly by the trio after they enjoyed working with each other on Hacktivist, the Archaia series from earlier this year created by actress and activist Alyssa Milano. In Joyride,when the Earth of the future becomes a totalitarian nightmare, three free-thinking teenagers bust free and discover real freedom in the vast reaches of unexplored space.

“Marcus is an incredibly talented artist we’ve seen evolve by leaps and bounds on Hacktivist and on Cyborg 009 before that, so when he, Collin, and Jackson approached us for a new original series with teenagers rocketing through space, we couldn’t turn it down,” said BOOM! Studios President of Publishing and Marketing Filip Sablik. “Their chemistry was so great on Hacktivist; it’s nice to see the old band back together with Jackson and Collin writing and Marcus on art. It’s going to be a blast, and we can’t wait to take everyone along for the ride.”

Joyride is the culmination of everything I love about comics,” said To. “We’re excited to tell relevant stories that engage our young and boisterous fans.”

“This is the book we’ve been dying to write,” said Kelly and Lanzing. “Joyride is about friendship, anarchy, punk rock, and freedom—about following your heart, even when it leads you into the vast unknown. Working with Marcus on Hacktivist was incredible, but creating a new universe alongside him has given us a whole new appreciation for his talent. We’re insanely excited to be back at Archaia, telling new stories and exploring totally bonkers new worlds.”

Additional details, including a release date, will be revealed at a later time. Watch the video in which To, Kelly, and Lanzing speak about Joyride here: http://uverse.com/uverse/buzz.

Or so he hoped…

Woken to his true angelic nature, John quickly finds himself at the centre of an apocalyptic war – one that could spell the end of existence as we know it – with no choice but to train in order to confront the holy destiny he never asked for.

But with scheming politicians, demonic factions and forces older than time itself vying against him, it looks like this ‘true-blooded’ bruiser has his work cut out for him!

Crack the Code with Justin Jordan’s
First Original Series with BOOM! Studios, ‘Deep State’

Deep State #1 Retailer Incentive Cover by Artyom Trakhanov

Los Angeles, CA - Everyone loves a good conspiracy theory. Whether you want to believe it or debunk it, stories of the faked moon landing, government-sanctioned assassinations, and brainwashing have been around for generations. This November, award-winning publisher BOOM! Studios asks: What if those conspiracy theories were planted to cover up an even darker truth? Discover the conspiracy behind the conspiracies with Deep State, a new ongoing series that kicks off the first of three original series from one of the emerging voices behind hard-hitting and intelligent stories, Justin Jordan (Spread, The Strange Talent of Luther Strode), and talented artist Ariela Kristantina (Death of Wolverine).

“Justin is a writer we’ve been dying to work with,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “His stories are visceral, smart, and they just bleed cool. With Deep State, Justin is setting up a little patch of land for himself at BOOM! and we’re excited to have him. Ariela Kristantina is teaming up with Justin and turning in some spectacular artwork on this series—she’s definitely an artist on the rise. Get ready for them to introduce you to John Harrow in November.”

In Deep State,John Harrow doesn’t exist, and his job is to make sure that other things don’t exist, too. At any given time, the government is running dozens of black book operations, experiments that aren’t on any official record and are never acknowledged to exist. Some of these are innocuous. Some of them are monstrous beyond reason. And most of the time, they go as expected and the public is never the wiser. Most of the time. John Harrow’s job is to handle them when things go wrong, and do anything to make sure the government’s secrets stay just that—secret. If you’re interested in conspiracy theory stories from comics like Planetary and Sleeper to films like Enemy of the State and Three Days of the Condor, you’ll be gripped by Deep State!

Deep State #1 arrives in comic book shops on November 12th with a main cover by Mondo print illustrator Matt Taylor and a retailer incentive cover by Artyom Trakhanov (Undertow), with a cover price of $3.99 under Diamond order code SEP141117. The Final Order Cutoff Date for retailers is October 20th. Not sure where to find your nearest comic retailer? Use comicshoplocator.com or findacomicshop.com to find one! It’s also available for pre-order directly from boom-studios.com.
