BABBLING BROOKE BLOG December 27, 2009



Sexy SCARS Readers:

Welcome back to my BABBLING BROOKE BLOG! As promised, you will get a little HORROR...a little HOLLYWOOD...a little HIGH DRAMA! :)

HORROR: At the end of 2009, I thought I would post a "monster mash" of cool horror stuff I have been involved with lately. THANK YOU to the incredible horror community for supporting my career in 2009. Please take a moment to check out some of the links:

HOLLYWOOD: JEROME BIXBY'S THE MAN FROM EARTH:
My business associate, Eric Wilkinson, producer of the independent film “Jerome Bixby’s The Man From Earth” shot me over an email about the award winning film. "After the film’s initial DVD release in November 2007, Anchor Bay Entertainment has finally announced this film’s release on Blu-Ray on February 2nd, 2010. As an independent filmmaker and producer, I am all too aware of the limited (or usually zero) marketing budgets to promote these smaller titles. For the past two years this film has generated amazing word of mouth online which not only catapulted “Jerome Bixby’s The Man From Earth” to the IMDB’s Top Rated Science Fiction films of all time (http://www.imdb.com/chart/scifi\), but has also been included on AOL's “Sci-Fi Squad” Top 10 “Best Science Fiction Films of the Decade” (2000 – 2009) (along with Children of Men, Donnie Darko, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Minority Report, Moon, Primer, Serenity, Star Trek and Wall-E). Your mention of this film will help tremendously and demonstrates that you not only support the big Hollywood blockbuster films, but also smaller films which sometimes struggle to find an audience. Again, please mention the release of our film on Blu-Ray and please support independent film overall."

HOLLYWOOD: THE DARKNESS DESCENDING: "Big news I'm excited to share. Earlier this year I was asked by a good friend to direct a trailer for a yet to be produced film. We not only shot a trailer but we shot the first 5 episodes of a web series entitled THE DARKNESS DESCENDING. It's a dramatic action story set against the backdrop of the homeless people living beneath the subway tunnels in New York City. It's a fascinating sub culture inspired by true characters and events...

Recently the web series was picked up by Koldcast TV, one of only 2 major online networks. Our first episode premiered last week (I've been traveling a lot so haven't had time to email before now) and there will be a new episode every week for the next 5 weeks. We are looking to shoot the next 5 this December."- Director, Marc Clebanoff

Listen to the music swell on the grand piano as it takes you back, back into time. Back into a world where the macabre is the norm. Prepare yourself, for as you open those peepers, you are going to be entering into an authentic Victorian Parlor where tea and frights will be on the menu. The amazing experiences you are about to witness are going to take you on a suspense filled journey.

Sexy SCARS Readers:

Welcome back to my BABBLING BROOKE BLOG! As promised, you will get a little HORROR...a little HOLLYWOOD...a little HIGH DRAMA! :)

HORROR: Okay...when I think of HORROR, I think of HART FISHER!!!
HORROR CREATOR HART D. FISHER MEETS THE VERMINATORS SEPTEMBER 13TH ON THE DISCOVERY CHANNEL!
DISCOVERY CHANNELS’ ELITE TEAM OF PESTBUSTERS CONFRONTS THE HORROR DIRECTORS’ WORST FEAR- RATS!
LOS ANGELES, CA- Horror show host and The Garbage Man writer/director, Hart D. Fisher, went head to head with his worst fear, fighting a rat & black widow spider infestation in his Los Angeles home, and had to call in the cavalry- The Discovery Channel’s elite group of pestbusters, The Verminators. When Gary gets the call from the horror film director with a fear of rats, he discovers the real scare is the threat the rodents pose to the health of his wife, who is recovering from cervical cancer.
“We had rats in the trees, in our attic, it was driving me nuts, it was driving my wife nuts, and when things start to bother my wife, the kid gloves come off.” said American Horrors host, Hart D. Fisher "I may live and breath horror movies, but when you find a black widow spider crawling across your big toe in the bath tub and you’ve got rats staring at you through the window, it’s time to call in the professionals. The guys from Isotech, they really kicked ass on these rats & spiders.”
The Verminators “Lights! Camera! Vermin!” featuring the adventures at Mr. Fisher’s home will air this Sunday, September 13th at 9am on The Discovery Channel. Check your local listings for airdates and re-runs. You will not want to miss the Black Widow re-enactments with Mr. Fisher in a tub full of bubble bath and venom!
“They brought over a bug wrangler and a couple BOXES of black widows. It was not easy holding still while they dangled the biggest Black Widow I’ve ever seen over my big toe with crazy glue and piano wire.” Added Mr. Fisher. “It took a lot of self control to just sit there with that big bug an inch away from my toe hanging by next to nothing.”
American Horrors began as a 2 hour television show syndicated through out Europe and Scandinavia by The Global Broadcasting Company, and in partnership with Indie Pictures has grown to be a major emerging distributor of Feature horror films, forging innovative partnerships with metal record powerhouses Nuclear Blast Records and Century Media. Starting in June 2009 American Horrors will release one feature film a month, including a new directors cut of Nobody Loves Alice, and will also be packaging the show as a 10 DVD collectors box set of the show’s first season for release in October.
Mr. Fisher is seeking out more indie filmmakers, feature films, shorts and horror themed music videos to be part of the American Horrors brand that reaches into tens of millions of households across countries including France, Germany, Sweden, Norway, Switzerland, Austria via Broadcast television, and now in America via DVD, VOD and Internet downloads. Anyone interested in seeking out more information or wishes to submit their work for review, please contact us at: submissions@americanhorrors.com.

HOLLYWOOD: Okay, so I'd like to think that iMURDERS is a horror/thriller with a lotta "Hollywood" in the mix, as we blow it out with a star-studded cast! Check out the new Hollywood press release for Robbie Bryan's iMURDERS:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Murder has a technology all its own.
Tune in, turn on … and drop dead.

iMURDERS

An all-star, high-tech horror whodunit from
Anchor Bay Entertainment, just in time for Halloween

BEVERLY HILLS, CA – (August 19, 2009) The Internet. For some, it’s one of the great innovations of the modern world, a pathway to knowledge, growth and new experiences. But for a group of people who share a common chat room, it could be the instrument of their destruction.

Just in time for Halloween, Anchor Bay Entertainment – the undisputed leader in cult and classic horror home entertainment – will release the star-laden shocker iMurders. Street date is October 13, 2009. Pre-book date is September 10, with an SRP of $19.97.

From the Producers of the cult hit "Jerome Bixby’s The Man From Earth" comes a horror thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat until the very end. When the members of an online social networking website are brutally murdered in succession, one person's past holds the key to the gruesome mystery. As the number of survivors decreases, they begin to believe that the killer might be one of the group.

This killer thriller features a star-studded cast including Gabrielle Anwar (“Burn Notice”), William Forsythe (The Devil’s Rejects, Rob Zombie’s Halloween), Emmy Award® nominee Billy Dee Williams (The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi), Scream Queen Brooke Lewis (The Sinatra Club), Tony Todd (Candyman, “24”), Saturn Award® winner Margaret Colin (“Gossip Girl,” Independence Day), Tony Award® winner Wilson Jermaine Heredia (Rent, “Medium”), Frank Grillo (“Prison Break,” “The Shield”) and two-time Academy Award® nominee, nine-time Emmy Award® nominee and Golden Globe Award® winner Charles Durning (Dog Day Afternoon, Tootsie). HorrorSociety.com called iMurders “a must-own film for those who like the suspense mystery flavor of horror movies!”

The film marks the directorial debut of Robbie Bryan (producer and screenwriter of The Stand-In, co-producer of Jerome Bixby’s The Man from Earth) and has been screened at the Eerie Horror Film Festival, Shriekfest, the Big Apple Film Festival and the Downbeach Film Festival, where it won the Audience Award.

I've been taking it easy and feeling a bit better day by day. I cannot thank all of my friends and fans enough for all your emails, cards, love and support. I have done some serious soul-searching during this mess and have really gotten clear on what is important in life and what I want to create for my future. It is all about love, respect and upholding each other's highest good! It is about being around people and projects that make you a "better" person...and, we make them "better" in return! It is about giving people the "space" to be who they are supposed to be...even when it is difficult! It's about doing the best we can in each moment and not beating ourselves up when we aren't "perfect". It is about taking time out for ourselves and time to breathe! Funny that I would work myself to the bone and not come up for "air" trying to be "perfect" and get a viral lung infection, so I couldn't breathe for 2 months...interesting, huh? BE TRUE...TAKE CARE OF YOU...SUCCESS WILL FOLLOW!!!

Love & Horror,
XO Brooke Lewis

Sexy SCARS Readers:

Welcome back to my BABBLING BROOKE BLOG! As promised, you will get a little HORROR...a little HOLLYWOOD...a little HIGH DRAMA! :)

HORROR: I was recently contacted by a dear friend and business associate, Marv Blauvelt, about the film COME. Here's what he had to say:
"When my friends, Arthur Cullipher and Kirk Chastain (from CLOCKWERK Pictures) gave me the script for COME and offered me the lead, I immediately said yes....the script is very "Lovecraftion", (and I LOVE H.P. Lovecraft)...it is by far the creepiest project I have been attached to, and some of the visual imagery that Arthur and Kirk have captured is VERY Dark and Haunting....and the gore scenes are not for the squeamish. Filming is nearly complete, and from what I have been told, the folks at Clockwerk Pictures plan to finish post by the end of August and start submitting to festivals as soon as possible."
Check out the press release:
Clockwerk Pictures Presents

COME

A surgical fetish doctor, obsessed with cutting off the vulvas of women and sewing them on their faces, meets his fate through the conspiratorial workings of a brothel proprietor, a prostitute and the Goddess of a strange religion.

Come is pure surreal, occult horror, featuring everything from the molestation of a tentacled, six breasted goddess in a jar to lust, murder, idolatry, revenge and salvation.

Marv Blauvelt, (Sculpture) plays Dr. Conduit, a man drawn into the worship of monsters and led to shocking acts of depravity, vying for the favor of a dark mother goddess.

Dave Pruett as Mr. Maker, proprietor of the brothel that has supplied the doctor's past two victims. A sinister individual with a wooden hand who will lead the good doctor to his fate and salvation by offering him a mysterious opportunity.

Emily Johnson as Siren, a seductive and treacherous prostitute employed by Mr. Maker serving as a mocking ghost of the doctors past.

Also starring
Kara Erdel and Leya Taylor as the doctor's previous victims, now "zombified" with their vulvas crudely stitched on their faces.
Lydia Comer and Shane Beasley as other weird denizens of the dark brothel.

Written and directed by Kirk Chastain and Arthur Cullipher (The Adipocere Child)

COMING THIS FALL!

HOLLYWOOD: You guys all know how much I have been supporting the action film BREAK. The film stars Michael Madsen, James Russo and the late David Carradine and I play The Bitch At The Bar in the opening scene! I am passing on a quote from my wonderful director, Marc Clebanoff, in hopes that you will rent the DVD!
"I just wanted to thank everyone who has supported me and my film BREAK along the long journey that's finally brought me to this week: the DVD release.

I've spent (and some of you have as well) over 2 years working to make sure BREAK is a success. We've garnered 5 awards, done numerous promotional & festival screenings & showed theatrically in 4 major US cities. We've been interviewed and highlighted by everyone from ET to the New York Post. At the end of the day, however, the success of a small independent film is completely based on the support of our friends, family, cast, crew and fans who support the film, talk it up & help us to fuel the buzz.

Below I've shared some links with you that you may or may not have already seen. Today my hope is that everyone helps me to make this film successful by doing one of the following:

All of these actions contribute significantly to the success of BREAK and bring me one step closer to being able to produce my next project (and employ many of you again).

Thank you all for your time and support. It means more than you know...

Best Regards,

Marc Clebanoff"

HIGH DRAMA: Had to share this one, as "drama" follows me from Hollywood to Buffalo!!! :) So, I hit Buffalo last week to play the role of Nicole in SLIME CITY MASSACRE. I flew across country all day and was totally wiped out and ready to hit the sheets at my hotel. I was still on West Coast time, so I had a tough time falling asleep. I watched TV for hours and started to freak out, as I had to be up at 7am to get to set. I finally zonked out at 3am and was sleeping like a baby when the fire alarms start raging like crazy and the hotel gets evacuated! I thought I was having a nightmare, as it was 5am and I had to be up at 6am to get ready to shoot. The hotel guests sat outside for an hour before we were allowed back into our rooms. It turned out that a toaster oven had caught on fire in the kitchen...just my luck! :)
LOTS more SLIME CITY MASSACRE gossip to come...

Sexy SCARS Readers:

Welcome back to my BABBLING BROOKE BLOG! As promised, you will get a little HORROR...a little HOLLYWOOD...a little HIGH DRAMA! :)

HORROR: I have met a lot of "horrifically" wonderful peeps in my many years of working in entertainment! There is one horror posse that never seizes to amaze me with their "undying" commitment to the genre! I was blessed to represent a bunch of them on the HOT HUNKS OF HORROR 2009 Calendar, have upcoming projects with them and can call them friends. Please come out to support their latest feature SCULPTURE:
Please spread the word about the NYC PREMIERE of SCULPTURE....

THE SCULPTURE WEB SITE:
http://www.sculpturethefilm.com/

All my love, support and "bites" to the SCULPTURE posse!

Speaking of the horror posse, I want to share a special announcement from Megan Sacco:
CUTZ – THE MOVIE
“ Sometimes nightmares are real”

A short film written and directed by Megan Sacco – Lady Haunter Inc. & Rob Roy- Wit’s End Entertainment
Story by Megan Sacco

Cutz is not for the faint at heart. It is a psychological thriller that is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat right from the very beginning. A group of kids enter a psych unit with various issues. Unbeknownst to them they have a connection that soon reveals itself. After years of repression they all begin to remember how they got to where they are today: drug addicted, eating disorders, cutting. Once the “secret” reveals itself, mayhem ensues.
Filming is set to start in August. Still casting some of the major roles.
This will be Megan’s Directorial debut.

You know how I feel about powerful women, so kick some DIRECTING ass, Megan!

HOLLYWOOD: THE BOLLYWOOD BOYS: The old saying that "work begets work" really seems to hold true! I recently wrapped a film called THE SINATRA CLUB and met a wonderful guy who was working on production, James L. Bills. We totally bonded, as he shares a similar attitude and work ethic to mine! Through producer Crystal Wortman, I was brought into the movie DOUBLE TAP and low and behold...the DP was James L. Bills! (See where this is going? ;) James got to see my work in 2 back to back flicks and soon contacted me about 2 upcoming projects he is directing! We have recently done a deal to attach me to his hilarious comedy THE BOLLYWOOD BOYS. I am very excited and get to act in the film with the 2 leads...David Faustino and Corin Nemec (For all you 80's fans like me...BUD BUNDY and PARKER LEWIS!!!) Check out a quote from James:

""The Bollywood Boys" came from an idea that Producer Al Gomez (writer of the comedy classic "Joy Sticks") had 3 years ago. He let me run with that idea and by summer of 2008 I had completed the script. The roles of Jerry and Tom (our heroes) were written specifically for David Faustino & Corin Nemec (STAR-VING) who in 2009, along with their business partner Todd Bringewatt teamed with our production team making "The Bollywood Boys" an AGP / FNB production.

I worked on a TV pilot with Nan Swartz, an Emmy winning producer who had created several shows for MTV in New York and brought her and her partner Andrew Greenbury (There's Something about Mary) on board as part of AGP.

Given the comedic needs of our project I have approached some very talented actors to join "The Bollywod Boys". Currently I am in discussions with Hilliary Barbour (The Bold and the Beautiful) , Camden Toy (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) , Brooke Lewis (The Sinatra Club) and the very sexy girl from our poster Lauren Jacobs.

"The Bollywood Boys" was inspired by my love for classic movie comedies, writers such as Mel Brooks, Harold Ramis & others along with charismatic actors that I grew up idolizing."

HIGH DRAMA: I know each week, I keep this section open to gossip, premieres, conventions, nights on the town, friends and personal stuff, but this week I want to get really personal. Those who know me know that I am like a powerful, lil energizer bunny who "keeps going and going" and doesn't stop...and, this is often true! Well, recently, I was stopped and my batteries died!!! Since the beginning of 09, I have been blessed with back to back projects, tons of public appearances, traveling to movie premieres and horror conventions all over the country and about 3 friend's weddings! A typical day of mine begins at 5:30 AM and ends around midnight. I was going for several months on about 4 hours sleep a night and spread really thin. I thought I could go at this pace forever and all the films, red carpets, money and "accomplishments" were worth it! Well, I crashed and burned on my last film and ended up with a severe viral lung infection that I am still fighting for over a month! I have been in/out of the hospital, on tons of steroids, meds and breathing machines, haven't been able to talk or breathe, took off work for 2 weeks and lost a film, have spent a fortune on doctor bills, herbs and expenses, haven't been able to work out and feel like someone beat the shit outta me! Why am I sharing this with you?...Not for sympathy, but to share my experience, lessons and realizations! As artists, we all work so hard to make our dreams and goals come true...we sacrifice things from romantic relationships to missing certain special moments with family and friends to vacations to sometimes even inner PEACE and HAPPINESS! We think if we "keep pounding the pavement" or take that next meeting or make that personal appearance, something HUGE will happen, so "I can't stop now"!!! Well, take it from a lil lady who was just "stopped", it doesn't matter what "level" we are at in our career or what "budget" films we are doing, it is about finding balance, love and INNER PEACE! It's about saying "NO" sometimes and being okay with it...and not "fearing" that more won't come! I have been suffering so for the past month, but believe that God and the Universe kicked my ass, so I would STOP and they could get my attention for a month :) I have done more resting, relaxing and spiritual work in one month, than in the past 2 years! I have counted my blessings and thanked God for the unbelievable family, friends, business associates and opportunities I have in my life! Funny how in the past month, I haven't been able to breathe, but was forced to take a huge "breather"...crazy how that works! ;) You may think I have rambled in this post, but if one thing I shared made you think about life or this craziness of a career we all love so much, then my job is done!

Whew...that was a purge! Gotta save some energy, because I am flying out this week to star in Greg Lamberson's SLIME CITY MASSACRE with Debbie Rochon and Lee Perkins, even if I have to take an oxygen tank with me!!!

Love & Horror,
XO Brooke Lewis

BABBLING BROOKE BLOG June 21, 2009

Sexy SCARS Readers:

Welcome back to my BABBLING BROOKE BLOG! As promised, you will get a little HORROR...a little HOLLYWOOD...a little HIGH DRAMA! :)

HORROR: As an artist, you go through many experiences, projects and mediums in your career...some memorable and some you want to forget. When I was young and doing theatre in New York, I worked on an Off-Broadway Rock Opera called THE CURE. I originated the role of JEWEL, a drug-addicted, HIV positive teen living on the streets who is introduced to a Vampire Coven that feeds off of the sick and criminal and holds "THE CURE". I don't want to share too much, but what I do want to share is that this was one of the memorable and artistic experiences of my career and it holds a very special place in my heart! From the story to the characters to the music to VAMPIRES!!! :)> I am proud an honored to announce that the show will be revived in NYC and you MUST go support Creator/Composer, Mark Weiser and Director, Elizabeth Lucas! Here's the latest information below:
"A rock n roll graphic novel about two friends who discover the world's last surviving vampires. When offered their own chance to live forever, one friend is seduced while the other barely escapes with his life, setting in motion a fight for survival that threatens to bring down the entire city.

At the crossroads of humanity and immortality, there you find THE CURE."

I am thrilled to announce that my musical, THE CURE, has been invited to be a part of the 2009 New York Musical Theatre Festival (NYMF) in September/October.
THE CURE is a rock n roll graphic novel come to life exploring the desire to live beyond the boundaries of mortality. The story...A man's search for a reason to live turns into a fight for survival when he falls in love with one of the last surviving vampires. Our characters struggle to find the value of their lives, and how to make that meaning last beyond their own existence. For each of them, as for each of us, the answers are different, but the question is as old as time itself - How do we gain immortality? What is THE CURE?
THE CURE is a darkly compelling story based on one of the most popular subjects of all time - vampires. In the last few years alone, we've seen franchises of TRUE BLOOD, TWILIGHT, BLADE, UNDERWORLD and countless video games, comic books, TV shows and films all surrounding our fascination for the eternally young, beautiful and seductive vampire. Unlike musical theater's previous attempts at tackling the vampire mythology, THE CURE tells an entirely original story, with a modern setting, modern music and a sensibility that melds the visceral impact of live theater, the sounds of rock n roll and the storytelling style of graphic novels. Never has the popularity of vampires been so rampant, and never has a stage show captured the heart of the vampire legend like THE CURE. -Mark Weiser

And, here's a fun one in the NEW YORK POST, if you are a GOODFELLAS fan:
June 12, 2009 --
HENRY Hill, the lovable mobster played by Ray Liotta in "Goodfellas" (1990), has become a pathetic, racist drunk, according to witnesses who saw him recently. Last week, "Crazy" Sal Polisi -- who testified against John Gotti at the Dapper Don's trial in 1986, and went into the witness protection program when Gotti was acquitted -- brought Hill to the Los Angeles set of "The Sinatra Club," the movie Polisi wrote about Gotti's first social club. "It was 10 a.m., and Hill was blitzed. He was pathetic," one cast member told Page Six. "And then he starts dropping the N-bomb. And we have black guys on the crew . . . He was escorted off and out." The picture stars Jason Gedrick as Polisi, Danny Nucci as Gotti, Michael Nouri as Carmine Fatico, Joey Lawrence as the club's "half-assed singer" and Leo Rossi as Paul Castellano.

CRYPTICON SEATTLE: Just returned from a horrific weekend at CRYPTICON with some of the nicest, most seasoned folks in horror! A big THANKS goes out to Bill and Troy and the CRYPTICON Seattle family for lining up an amazing group of horror peeps! I was fortunate to spend time with the hilarious Eileen Dietz, Adrienne King, Doug Jones, Don Coscarelli, Reggie Bannister, Gigi Fast Elk Porter, Ken Foree, Charlotte Kemp and many others.

HOLLYWOOD: Tragedy struck Hollywood last Thursday when I got the call from my director, Marc Clebanoff, of BREAK that I acted in with the late and great David Carradine! What a sad and terrible loss of a very talented man! Check out Marc's interview on The Wrap:

June 04, 2009, 8:08PM CDT
Remembering David Carradine
By Marc Clebanoff

When the suggestion was initially made a few years ago to pursue David Carradine for a role in "Break," my first reaction was how appropriate it seemed. After all, who better to cast in a flick laden with killer kung fu than Caine himself?

It was without a doubt one of the best creative decisions I ever made as a director and producer. When you see his performance, I think you’ll agree.

On the first take, David held out his arms to fellow actor Frank Krueger, exclaimed, “Welcome, my friend” and hugged Frank -- just as the screenplay called for.

Following the embrace, however, Carradine ran his fingers through Frank’s hair and pecked him on the cheek. I leaned over to my assistant with a smile and noted, “That was interesting.”

On take two, that peck on the check transformed into a peck on the lips.

Take three was a real kiss.

Take four, however -- that’s what’s in the film. But it wasn’t sexual. It was just the kind of twisted genius that only comes from a truly gifted and amazing actor. One could only imagine what a fifth take might have entailed.

Watching David take an already colorful character and sequence and escalate it to a level that renders audible delight to anyone who has ever screened "Break" is to me what personifies David as a true star.

Nearly a year later -- in May of 2009 -- "Break" had its theatrical release in Los Angeles. I remember being very excited, yet slightly nervous because David was coming to see the film for the first time. One of the proudest moments I can recall in my professional career was standing next to him in a Q&A session following the opening-night screening and hearing him say, “With independent films you never know. I happen to really like this film.”

He looked me straight in the eyes as he said it -- despite the packed theater before him. A far cry from the man who challenged me to a sparring match on my set when he found out I was also a martial artist. But even then it seemed David was always making a point of passing along his knowledge, as if assuming the mentor role wherever he was, be it with a younger actor, a new director or even just a fellow martial artist.

As amazing as the performance that he gave me is, it seems that David’s greatest contributions to the people he worked with came between the lines.

David Carradine will be truly missed. His fans will remember his brightest on-screen moments and characters, but the people lucky enough to work with him will miss the element in David’s character that pushed everyone around him to achieve at a higher level.

HIGH DRAMA: OMV (OH MY VAMPIRE!!! As Ms. Vampy would say :) I am stressed to the max...traveling and working 24/7! I am still on THE SINATRA CLUB for another week and start rehearsals for SLIME CITY MASSACRE next week. I just met with my cutie, Roger A. Scheck, about his horror/sci-fi flick, TONIGHT, HE WALKS, that I am starring in and am waiting for the shooting dates for Anthony Brownrigg's THE EIGHT. Sleep? What the F^%K is that??? Wait...anyone need me for a ZOMBIE flick? Um...no FX needed ;)

HORROR: TEXAS FRIGHTMARE WEEKEND: First, and most importantly, a big Texas HELL YEAH!!! thanks goes out to my Texas Horror Family! I and iMURDERS owe a special thanks to Parrish Randall and Loyd Cryer for inviting us there! This was one of the most AMAZING horror events I have ever experienced! And, thanks to Andrew Rose for promoting us like crazy! I must send love from La La Land to: Parrish & Theresa, Andrew & Dione, Loyd & Sue, Noel, Amanda Carver, John R. Strange of Doc Strange Images, Ed & Angie, Chris & Joel of SCREAMTV, Abel & Jennifer of SPOILS and the cast and crew of POSSUM WALK!!!

HOLLYWOOD: I must be one of the luckiest actresses in the world, as I am making film deals from Texas to San Francisco!!! :) I have 2 film announcements:
THE EIGHT: After months of meetings, emails, "talks"...it is OFFICIAL...Anthony Brownrigg, Maegan Brownrigg and I "did" lunch to seal the deal for one of the most powerful independent films to be made in a very long time! I am honored and floored to have the opportunity to work with a team as strong and talented as Anthony and Maegan and cannot wait to see how this project flows! I have signed a "top secret" NDA, so I cannot reveal much at this time, but to quote Anthony directly...
"Brooke Lewis has accepted the lead role in Anthony Brownrigg's next
film "the Eight", a paranormal thriller to be filmed later this year."

THE LAST REVENANTS: A female Vampire film??? Um...yes...I am all over it!!! :)> After having the pleasure of sharing XANADU CON with the incredible and talented Rachel Grubb, she referred me to the cool and interesting writers Scott C. Sanford and Ron R. Anand. Scott and I hit it off "scarily" and I have been offered the role of Geena to act with Rachel, the stunning Sybil Danning and several other sexy Scream Queens! The film will be directed by Robert Pratten and shoots at the end of the year. Vampire chick flicks...keep em' coming guys!!!

Her custom jewelry is EXQUISITE! I fell "horribly" in love with this one piece...an antique style necklace with pendant. Brandy was soooo unbelievably generous, she gave me the piece as a gift to take back to Hollywood to show off to all the celebs! :) I cannot thank her enough and you can be sure to look out for her necklace in my next photo shoot, as I will be wearing it like a proud ROCKSTAR!!!

HOLLYWOOD: 48 HOURS IN PURGATORY
You know I love to support indie filmmakers both in and out of the horror genre and this one, starring my business associate, Andrew Roth, definitely grabbed my attention! I love me a good psychological drama and I have a feeling I will be a strong supporter of this one! Check it out:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO FACE YOUR INNER DEMONS?
Ambitious Indie Film “48 Hours in Purgatory” Opens Shooting May 15, 2009

48 Hours in Purgatory is a film about people. From the bad-ass crew of rock star film-makers to the subjects of their latest documentary, this movie explores the complexity of relationships, whether with others or with oneself.
Brody Hawkins (Andrew Roth) and his cohorts Veronique (Emily Alatalo), Jagt (Sean Saska) and Arkham (JC Hewitt), have risen to prominence in the New York film scene with documentary after documentary exploring the “demons of New York City.” Their films – ranging in subject matter from memorial tattoos using the ashes of cremated loved ones to the rare, sudden onset of mental illness in women delivering children –have become “must-sees.”
Hot off the heels of their latest film (the box-office smash “Bagface”) Brody and company head to Canada, a place where Brody has demons of his own, to film Veronique's pet project, 48 Hours in Purgatory. The film is to be a docustudy exploring what happens when people are (voluntarily) confined to small room and forced to confront the skeletons in their closets.
Things start out very well, in spite of emotional tensions among the crew. Part way through filming, however, tragedy strikes. Brody tries to soldier on and finish the film, pushing each subsequent subject harder and harder into the dark places of their lives. Finally Brody finds himself alone at the location, abandoned by his crew, with one subject remaining; A subject who will turn the tables on him, leading him to face his own inner demons.
Do our self-deceptions serve us better than we imagine? Do we have the courage to look past the simple labels we place on others? Do we have the courage to face our inner demons?
Written and Directed by musician Jason Armstrong, “48 Hours in Purgatory” explores those questions and more in this character-rich story about love, regret, fear, and the lies we tell ourselves.

Jason & Andrew go kick some ass!!!

BABBLING BROOKE BLOG April 19, 2009

Sexy SCARS Readers:

Welcome back to my BABBLING BROOKE BLOG! As promised, you will get a little HORROR...a little HOLLYWOOD...a little HIGH DRAMA! :)

HORROR: I just got off the plane from 3 days in Vegas at XANADU CON and I look scarier than any horror flick I've watched lately! :) After not sleeping for days, I have bags under my eyes larger than Louie Vuitton Luggage!!! :) I am super bummed that I missed LA FANGO, but I definitely worked and partied in true Vegas fashion. I had the opportunity to speak on a few horror film panels with some amazing Scream Queens and Tucky Williams and I tore up Mandalay Bay one night! Michael Papajohn (SPIDER-MAN;TERMINATOR SALVATION) and I shared a booth at the convention and laughed our asses off! My favorite panel was WOMEN IN HORROR: OBJECTIFYING & SEXUALITY. I had the honor of speaking with my new horror gal pals:
Rachel Grubb (CAVE WOMEN ON MARS;TERROR OVERLOAD) and Tucky Williams (DEAD MOON RISING;SHADOWS LIGHT). Between the 3 of us, there was such great energy and so much girl POWER! Rachel owns SILENT-BUT-DEADLY PRODUCTIONS with Brooke Lemke and is a true artist thru and thru...she is everything I had read about and more. Tucky is so beautiful on the outside, but one of the sweetest women I have met in horror yet! I am thinking of leaving Hollywood to meet more cool chicks like this! :) I hope we will stay in touch for days to come.
Of course, I cannot forget to mention and thank my B MOVIE MAN, Nic Brown! Not only did Nic do an awesome, detailed interview with me, but he acted as the bodygard to Tucky and I all weekend ;) Thanks, Nic, baby!!!
www.Bmovieman.com

HOLLYWOOD: XANADU included wonderful vendors and filmmakers outside of the horror genre, as well. I was fortunate to meet a lovely couple, Gwydhar and Dan, who will not be forgotten (again, those wonderful people who you may never be lucky enough to meet in life, if you never leave Hollywood! :) I have a strong gut feeling these guys are up to big things, so here's a "bite" of info about their company:
Blue Damen Pictures is a non profit film production company based in Chicago whose mission is to give individuals with an interest in filmmaking the opportunity to get hands on experience in production. We recently produced the award winning experimental short "Persephone" which is a retelling of the Greek myth of Persephone using masks and puppets. Currently we are working on a project called "The Insomniac Chronicles" which is a series of short films that will eventually be put together to create a feature length film all seen through the eyes of someone suffering from sleep deprivation. The first short in the series, entitled "The Visionary" will be previewing in May and the trailer for it can be seen on our website.
www.bluedamen.com
Now, if making new friends wasn't cool enough, Gwydhar sent me back to LA with the most incredible drawing of MS. VAMPY ever!!! It is so getting framed this week! Check out her artwork too:
www.gwydhar.com

HIGH DRAMA: Okay, the highest drama at XANADU had to be the money Brooke Lewis spent, not gambling, but on CLOTHES!!! OMG!!! I was introduced to the sweetest, sickest, vampiest clothing boutique EVER and couldn't control myself...gotta shout out to Tushell, London, Rebel and the girls!
BAD ATTITUDE BOUTIQUE
You must (and, I will accept gifts from here ;) :

HOLLYWOOD: Thursday night I attended the red carpet screening of DESDEMONA: A LOVE STORY at the Beverly Hills Film Festival. I wanted to support the film and talented actor/producer James LaMarr. Often times with indie dramas, the viewer is quite disappointed...surely NOT the case with this one! I was so moved by this artistic film, my heart aches 3 days later! In the vein of a ROMEO AND JULIET, this film is beautifully shot, directed and acted. I was truly impressed with Phillip Guzman's direction and the work of Jorge A. Jimenez and Denton Blane Everett was tremendous!

SLIME CITY MASSACRE:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LAMBERSON MASSACRES SLIME CITY IN JULY
CONTACT: Greg Lamberson, The Slime City Massacre Company – glamberson@verizon.com

Cameras will roll on SLIME CITY MASSACRE, writer-director Gregory Lamberson’s sequel to his 1988 splatter film SLIME CITY, in Buffalo, New York, this July. The film is being produced by Marc Makowski, who co-produced the original.

SLIME CITY MASSACRE serves as both a prequel and a sequel to the original cult film. Flashbacks set in 1959 show how cult leader Zachary Devon formed his Coven of Flesh, and why its members committed ritual suicide, setting the stage for the events depicted in SLIME CITY. In the new film’s main narrative, set in a post holocaust New York City, four survivors discover Zachary’s elixir and “Himalayan yogurt” in the ruins of his soup kitchen and become possessed by the spirits of the dead cult members. The story focuses on a battle between three factions: the“Slime Heads,” cannibals and mercenaries.

Popular actress and FANGORIA Radio hostess Debbie Rochon, award-winning horror author Kealan Patrick Burke, and newcomer Jennifer Bihl (who appeared in Lamberson’s short film GRUESOME) join SLIME CITY stars Robert C. Sabin and Mary Bogle for this new chapter in the slime saga. Other parts will be played by scream queen Brooke Lewis, erotic/horror author and tarot card reader Sephera Giron, and Tommy Sweeney, who starred in Lamberson’s UNDYING LOVE and co-starred in NAKED FEAR.

“It’s a much more ambitious project than any of my previous films,” says Lamberson, who anticipates completing the film for a 2010 release. “It’s full of action and really outrageous, over the top gore sequences, as you would expect from any film aimed at fans of 1980s horror flicks.”

The film will utilize old school latex special make-up effects and cutting edge digital work. Special make-up effects will be handled by Craig Lindberg in New York City and Zombified Studios in Buffalo, with R.J. Sevin, one of the founders of Creeping Hemlock Press, creating the digital effects.

Last year, Medallion Press and Bad Moon Books published Lamberson’s novel Johnny Gruesome and McFarland published his nonfiction book CHEAP SCARES! Low Budget Horror Filmmakers Share Their Secrets. This October, Medallion Press is reprinting his first novel, Personal Demons, as a mass market paperback.

A few years back, I met this guy at a Fangoria Convention...his like "BODYGUARD" or "PUBLICIST" or "someone" pulled me over to meet him...CHUCK WILLIAMS!!! Ya know him?

CONGRATS, Chuckie Baby! Um...when are you taking me to the MANSION?????? ;)

HIGH DRAMA: Okay, so you can take the girl outta Philly, but ya can't take Philly outta the girl! I got a tip from a friend that a woman I knew from the "hood" ;) created a company that is on the verge of exploding!!! I thought, how cool would it be if I could bring it to Hollywood, support my "peeps" back home and help spread POSITIVE ENERGY??? Check out this RELEASE about DEBBIE OSER and KEEPING IT POSITIVE:

Debbie Oser, a Stay-at-Home Mom of two boys, turned Entrepreneur, launched her business - Keeping it Positive - last year, and is trying to spread a POSITIVE message to kids and adults everywhere! Her product line, called Pleasant Dreamz, consists of 100% Cotton/300 Thread Count Positive Affirmation Pillowcases, 16 oz. Positive Affirmation Ceramic Barrel Mugs, and Positive Affirmation Sweatshirt Baby Blankets. These products are truly a GREAT tool for kids and adults to develop a POSITIVE mindset!

The subconscious mind believes whatever you tell it, so by repeating Positive Affirmations daily, you are conditioning your subconscious mind to believe these POSITIVE thoughts. Thinking positive can help transform your life, by affecting your behavior, attitude, reactions, etc., and can truly give a child more confidence and self-assurance!

They say that to change one's thinking patterns, one should say positive affirmations before going to bed, and when you awake in the morning,... and what better way than to have the Affirmations right on your Pillowcase, Mug, and Baby Blanket!

Oser would love to be able to spread this POSITIVE tool to kids and adults everywhere, and allow them to be more confident, and secure, and know that THEY are important, and can do anything they put their mind to!

Her products and information can be seen at www.KeepingitPositive.net, or can be reached at 215-768-0515 EST.

Deb, I am ordering a mug right now!!! :)

Love & Horror,
XO Brooke Lewis
