In a Brutal Post-Apocalyptic World, One Woman Fights for Survival



In a Brutal Post-Apocalyptic World, One Woman Fights for Survival
English-Language Dutch Action/Sci-Fi Thriller Available Blu-ray, DVD and VOD October 2nd     
    "...she looks nothing like a superhero, and that makes it all the more special when you see her stumble, push, shoot, stab and stomp through scores of villains."  -- Screen Anarchy 

 The English-language first feature from co-directors Colinda Bongers and Thijs Meuwese, Molly premiered at the Imagine Film Festival, where Screen Anarchy raved, "like with Turbo Kid two years ago, ingenuity is the name of the game here". Molly will be available nationwide October 2nd on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD, including iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Google Play, Vudu and more.
  
 Julia Batelaan makes her feature film debut as the titular Molly, the latest addition to the pantheon of teens standing between evil and the end of the world.

 Molly is an electrifying and imaginative tale of one young woman's determined struggle to survive in an inhospitable world. In a barren landscape ravished by war, a super-powered young woman roams the violent post-apocalyptic landscape, armed only with a bow and arrow, to confront the dangers around her. When a sadistic ringmaster who runs an underground fight club hears of her supernatural abilities, he sends his sociopathic marauders to capture her and make her a star attraction in his cage fights.

 The Blu-ray (SRP $19.99) and DVD (SRP $14.99) releases of Molly will exclusively include a feature length commentary with co-directors Colinda Bongers and Thijs Meuwese as well as a 30-minute making of featurette.

Horrornews.net Review: A Taste of Phobia



SYNOPSIS:
For this anthology movie, producers Vestra Pictures assigned international directors with a phobia and set them to work making a horror short about it.
REVIEW: 
A Taste of Phobia is a horror anthology film put together through the cooperation of Vestra Pictures, Trash Arts Productions, and Artsploitation Films. The theme here, fairly obvious by the title of the film, is fear. Much like the set-up of The ABCs of Death, where a letter was assigned to each participant, here each filmmaker was given a fear (some familiar ones, and some not so common ones) and the task of creating a short horror film somehow incorporating it. While most of the participants were invited, a handful of spots were open to a submission call in early 2017. These films are from a variety of places – a few from the United States, and one from Nigeria, but most come from Italy and the UK – and are made by a variety of filmmakers – some familiar names, some first-time directors. A Taste of Phobiacontains 14 segments which span from creepy to goofy to nasty and disgusting, and while the afore-mentioned alphabet-inspired anthology had definite hits and misses, most of these short films are pretty enjoyable.

Best Director
Best Make Up & FX
Best Feature Narrative

Kew Gardens Festival of Cinema Block 29 — UA Midway Theater

Snowflake
Take a dash of Tarantino, a splash of Coen brothers, a metric ton of pretzel-logic self-awareness, and a fast-paced series of humorously violent misadventures, and you’re halfway to grasping the magnificent German madness of this bizarre import. Hunting down the murderer of their families in a near-future Berlin, a gang of lowlife characters all want revenge on each other, but along the way they must contend with a myriad of wicked fairytale types—assassins, madmen, a blood-covered angel, and an electric-powered superhero—all apparently come to life through a screenplay written by a demented but clueless dentist. Must be experienced to be believed, and guaranteed to twist your mind.

Warning: Kew Gardens is screening Controversial Film TRAUMA at Midnight, Aug 10th


Trauma has been nominated for an award at Kew Gardens Festival of Cinema in the following categories:
Best Make-Up & Special FX
Best Actress: Catalina Martin
Trauma ( Artsploitation Films )
A shocking, brutal tale that blends the dark history of Chile’s recent past (the violent, repressive military dictatorship of Pinochet) with the seemingly modern and progressive Chile of today. The two worlds clash when a group of women venture to the idyllic countryside for a weekend of fun. But their outing soon turns nightmarish a man, himself a victim of torture in the hands of the government, unleashes his pent-up rage on them. The women must fight for their very lives in this film of shocking violence and sexual assault. Never gratuitous, director Rojas exposes the horrors of politics with the evil that can lie within the damaged soul of man.

Horror Anthologies German Angst & A Taste of Phobia Coming to DVD/Blu-ray & VOD

Horror Anthologies German Angst & A Taste of Phobia Coming to DVD/Blu-ray & VOD


PHILADELPHIA, PA - Artsploitation Films will release two eye-popping horror anthologies on June 26th. Fourteen different directors peer into the twisted and often self-violent world of phobias in A Taste of Phobia. Also, on that date will be a special-featured-packed Blu-ray release of German Angst. Love and sex has never been portrayed as so depraved and disturbing as seen by three controversial underground filmmakers, the legendary Jörg Buttgereit (Nekromantik(1987); Andreas Marschall (Tears of Kali (2004); and Michal Kosakowski (Zero Killed (2014). Note: German Angst is a Blu-ray re-issue, as the film has been out on Blu-ray previously. But the original release was a barebones Blu-ray-R while this Artsploitation Films release will be of the highest HD quality and will contain many bonus features.
