IFC Midnight Premieres ‘Carnage Park’ in LA and NY on July 1

Coming to theaters in Los Angeles and New York and on Video on Demand. IFC Midnight releases Sundance and SXSW selection, Carnage Park.

This pure-pulp thrill ride jumps between past and present as it pieces together the puzzle of a shocking crime.

Rising horror auteur Mickey Keating (Pod, Darling) directs this gritty, grisly homage to the glory days of grindhouse cinema.

Cast: Ashley Bell, Pat Healy, James Landry Hebert, Darby Stanchfield, and Alan Ruck
Release Date: July 1 in New York/VOD. July TBD in Los Angeles.

Victor Walk – Movie Review – Dances with Films (2016)

Victor Walk is a documentary about NHL Stanley Cup Winner Theo Fleury and his 10-day walk from Toronto to Ottawa, Canada’s capital. His 400-kilometer walk is meant to bring awareness for adults, who were sexually abused as children and to urge Canadian lawmakers to strengthen laws against predators and support for their victims.

Dances with Films 2016 – World Premiere
Director:
Michael David Lynch
Subject: Theo Fleury

Victor Walk is a powerful documentary focusing on adult victims of sexual abuse. It does everything that a documentary has to do to shed light on a serious problem facing Canadians and Americans. In North America, 1 out of 4 men and 1 out of 3 women have been sexually abused.

Fleury uses the Victor Walk to first show that victims of sexual abuse no longer need to let their abuse define who they are. The struggle for survival was not easy, but Fleury overcame and is now victorious over his abuse.

As a teen, Fleury was sexually abused by his hockey coach. Quickly becoming an NHL star, Fleury fought the demons of anger, drugs and gambling. Soon his career and riches were gone. Fleury found himself alone in a room ready to commit suicide. Choosing survival, Fleury’s life is now dedicated to letting his fellow Canadians know this by walking from Toronto to Ottawa. It is in Ottawa that Fleury will ultimately confront lawmakers asking them to make real reforms in the prosecution of sex offenders.

Not only does Victor Walk educate us about the current state of sexual abuse in Canada, but it connects us with real faces left in the wake of abuse. For 10 days, Fleury would walk 400 kilometers and never a day goes by along the walk that dozens of adults come out to lend support and for many releases, for the first time, the specter of abuse they have been carrying all their lives until today. Fleury is there to encourage these brave men and women to find victory.

Like a good documentary, Victor Walk leaves its audiences feeling like more needs to be done. It’s hard not to feel compassion for those suffering in silence, feel joy when a victim finally frees themselves by talking and anger that the laws of Canada (and the United States for that matter) don’t do enough to keep predators behind bars.

There are a lot of information warning children and parents about sexual predators. Victor Walk is one of the rare movies that speaks directly to adults, who have had to hide their shame for decades. Victor Walk will educate, inspire and move you to action. You can learn more about Victor Walk and upcoming screenings at victorwalkdoc.com.

E3 Report – Day 1 – Battlefield 1 Demo (EA)

I found a perk to being a member of EA Access on the Xbox. Front of the line access to demos at E3. I walked right to the head of the line to play EA’s newest game , Battlefield 1 from DICE the company that brought you Star Wars Battlefront.

The game is pretty cool. It takes place during World War I and anything that you can think of that was used in the war. You’re a 20160614_205804000_iOSsoldier with a basic gun, but your weapons can be upgraded to pistols, rifles with bayonets, shotguns, grenade, flamethrowers, mustard gas, etc. All accurate to the time.

Vehicles from artillery trucks, tanks, planes, blimps, ships, horses and more. Battlegrounds from a French countryside to a blistering hot weather.
EA also added weather like fog and rain to further throw a wrench into the plans.

20160614_212901008_iOSGameplay was pretty straightforward and I got schooled. Thankfully, i wasn’t the worst player, but I was pretty bad, only killing 3 of my 32 opponents. Can’t wait for this beauty to hit the stores October 21 or October 13 for EA Access members on Xbox One.

E3 Report – Day 1 – Let It Die Demo (Grasshopper)

I’ve never owned a Playstation Console. But after playing a few Playstation exclusives, I’m thinking it might be time.

I had a chance to play the demo of Let It Die from Grasshopper and Gung Ho studios.

ItLet It Die - E3 2016‘s the year 2026 AD and a large tectonic disturbance caused mass destruction around the world. You play a post-apocalyptic survivor with nothing but their underwear to start.

How I looked after the demo

Your job is to explore the world around you and fight. Fight fellow mutants and incredibly mutated mutants in some difficult boss battles. Step on frogs and mice for food and energy. Gather shirts, pants and weapons to fight. You can carry up to six.

The controls were easy to use and I found the fighting fun. The 10-minute demo ended way too soon. Let It Die is a Playstation exclusive and comes out this year but no firm date was announced.
