Killing Candi

Director: Julie Ufema.
Like it or not, Candies parole officer says the reality star has a PSA to shoot. And although she’ll do just about anything for fame, the little people she continues to step on are even more willing to do anything to take it all away. What could be sweeter than killing Candi?

Eversouls: The Collector and Sage

Director: Julie Ufema.
Serena and Anna grew up together in the same orphanage, dreaming of one day being adopted into the same family, so when Mr. and Mrs. Eversoul take them in they all believe that their prayers have been answered. But the dream quickly turns into a nightmare when they realize that being a family comes with an unimaginable responsibility passed down over the centuries. Guided by the family sage and a misunderstood ‘Collector’, Serena and Anna navigate through a maze of lost souls. These souls have a price to pay someone, or something, to free them selves and find eternal peace. Serena and Anna must find the strength and power to help free these souls or find themselves paying an even bigger price.

Geek Glory At 2011 Comic-Con

user
  Any event that can bring together such high power heavyweights as Steven Spielberg, Peter Jackson and a host of stellar movie stars is the definition of clout. So, let’s be clear…..Comic-Con, the sprawling exhibition and promotion extravaganza that just wrapped in San Diego, has major clout. The confab, originally a geeky celebration of comic book culture, has become the go-to place for film and television series with comic book origins and fantasy/supernatural/phantasmagoric films in ge...

IFFBoston 2010: Weekend

user
A sampling of the films on IFFBoston's chock-full weekend slate includes: Cell 211, Anne Perry: Interiors, 9500 Liberty, and The Killer Inside Me. Eight-time Goya Award-winning Cell 211 is a taut prison thriller whose central characters are a new guard trapped on the inmate side of a nascent prison riot and the brutal rebellion’s emergent leader.  This excellent Spanish export leaves no breaks in the pacing or in the lives of the characters.  Each battle is hard fought, hard won, and hard...

The Suspensful Career of Brian De Palma

user
  While Alfred Hitchcock will forever be known as the "master of suspense", one of his true admirers, the director Brian De Palma, also shares the master's abiding interest and superb execution of the thriller genre. If anything, De Palma was able to be much more explicit in the depiction of violence and sexality than Hitchcock was able to do in the more buttoned-down decades of the 1950s and 1960s. In many ways, De Palma combines the classic elements of less-is-more film sus...
