Synopsis: Nobody believes a liar - even when they're telling the truth. When a young woman is found murdered, a group of local high school students decide to further scare their classmates by spreading online rumors that a serial killer called "The Wolf" is on the loose. By describing "The Wolf's" next victims, the students' game is to see how many people they can convince - and if anyone will uncover the lie. But when the described victims actually do start turning up dead, suddenly no one knows where the lies end and the truth begins. As someone or something begins hunting the students themselves, the game turns terrifyingly real.

British film director Tobias Tobbell used theatre-style improvisation to up
the ante in his new feature film. Every Picture is a stirring thriller about
a couple whose deeds forge a path for a vengeful spirit to act, with
catastrophic consequences.

Tobbell says "In a film like this, you really don't want the moment to be
lost to a line. We therefore made a conscious decision not to have a script
for this movie and rather engaged the actors by setting story objectives for
each Act and then letting them create the moment through their own emotions
and words. The actors rose to the occasion and did a great job. We broke the
rules on this occasion to make it a better film."
The feature also makes innovative and unusual use of Art Animation mixed
with real footage in order to tell a tragic story through the eyes of a
young child.

The cast and crew are available for interviews, research and articles about
the film. Please contact Tobias Tobbell direct in this regard on 07739
392977. Full movie synopsis, biographies, stills gallery and trailer are
available at

The Press are invited to the preview screening of Every Picture which will
take place at The Curzon Soho, 99 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, W1D 5DY on
Saturday, the 21st of May 2005 at 10H30. The Director will be at the
screening in order to answer questions about this and future projects, meet
new actors etc. Tickets may be reserved by e-mailing or by calling Tobias Tobbell direct on 07739
392977. Press ID required at the door for free entry. Public access is also
available at £5 a ticket.

New York, NY – Shock-O-Rama Cinema is proud to announce the DVD release of the film FilmThreat calls, “Airplane meets Caged Heat!” A tongue-in-cheek homage to women-in-prison films, Prison-A-G-Go starring cult icon Mary Woronov and late night TV comedienne Rhonda Shear, is an outrageous spectacular packed with mad scientists, mutant zombies, killer ninjas, genetic mutation and gratuitous shower scenes. Already a proven festival favorite, Prison-A-Go-Go garnered Best B Movie and Best Director awards at B-Movie Film Festival and Shock-A-Go-Go film festival, Best Feature at Backseat Film Festival and the Deep Ellum award at the Deep Ellum film festival.

As Harry Knowles of Ain’t It Cool News says:

“If you’ve been hankering for a new film along the lines of The Big Birdcage and Black Momma White Momma…this is just the ticket.”


After her sister is abducted for scientific reasons, brainy and beautiful Janie (Laurie Walton) must solve the mystery and attempt a rescue. The lone clue leads to a notorious, maximum-security women’s prison in the Philippines where committing a crime may be her only way in. Once inside, Janie comes face to face with the jail block’s colorful population of bizarre convicts including luscious lifer ‘Jackpot’ (Rhonda Shear), a ruthless warden (Mary Woronov), vicious prison guards, and horrifying genetic experiments at the hands of a mad doctor. As Janie struggles to save her sister and the other female guinea pigs from almost certain death or worse, she must also deal with the daily rigors, violent encounters and outrageous exploits that can only come with life in an all women’s prison!

Available July 26 from Shock-O-Rama Cinema (a division of ei Independent Cinema), Prison-A-Go-Go DVD bonus features include:
Mini-documentary of the Shock-A-Go-Go film festival in Los Angeles, California
Q&A with film star Mary Woronov and director Barak Epstein
Q&A with film legend Roger Corman
Q&A with exploitation icon David Friedman
Commentary by Director Barak Epstein

Now that we have your attention, it's time to announce the June 7, 2005 arrival of the kinky zombie classic THE STINK OF FLESH Special Edition ($24.99 SRP, prebook May 10). And the title isn't the only clever thing about this little gem, which answers the eternal question, "How do you lead an alternative lifestyle...when everybody's dead?"

Wandering a zombie wasteland, Matool survives by his wits and animal instinct, often employing his trusty hammer and gigantic nails to fend off the ravenous hordes of flesh-eating undead. But when he is kidnapped by a mysterious couple, Matool must rely on an entirely different weapon in his arsenal to survive...

Written & directed by Scott Phillips (screenwriter of DRIVE), THE STINK OF FLESH is a no-holds-barred splatterfest featuring non-stop action and buckets of gore. THE STINK OF FLESH is sure to be a fan favorite and comes fully-stocked with as many extras as you can shake a severed limb at!

Cinema bookstore AUX FILMS DU TEMPS is pleased to announce the launch of its new website, at

Founded in Paris in 1981, AUX FILMS DU TEMPS was among the first wave of cinema bookstores to appear on the scene. In addition to a broad selection of current and out-of-print books and film periodicals, the shop specializes in original movie posters, still photographs and other cinema-related promotional materials. It provides movie lovers, professionals and collectors alike with the resources to nurture their reflection and love of the cinema, as well as support them in creating their own films.

The first of its kind, reflects the same specialization as the bookstore. By offering free access to the store’s entire database (of books, periodicals, posters and photos), the visitor can cross-reference his or her research from a broad range of criteria (director, actor, country, genre, theme, etc.).

Given our love of the cinema, we have devoted ourselves to a meticulous visual presentation of each item in our catalog. Furthermore, the graphic design of the site itself (created by Etienne Robial* and François Despas) presents both a playful, user-friendly space and a strong visual identity.

The site is presented and searchable in both French and English, and orders can be shipped worldwide.

Thank you for your kind interest and please don’t hesitate to contact us, at, should you require any additional information.

Looking forward to your visit!


* Etienne Robial, an eponymous book on the renowned graphic designer’s body of work, was published by Editions Pyramid, in December 2004, as part of its Design & Designers series.

The new issue of Savage Cinema is up. We hope all of our viewers enjoy reading it. Were very pleased to bring David Carter to the staff! As far as updates go, hopefully I (webmaster) can be more persistent. Having to give 100% to a day job makes hobbies harder to find time for.

If any readers would like to contribute to the magazine, please email us!

Come back often, were doing big things at Savage Cinema in the next few weeks, look back to not only this news section but also the emails page which is a new addition to the site.

----- January 3rd, 2005 -----

Savage Cinema has undergone many problems with the host over the past year and half. The customer support was bad, gaining access to email and ftp were nearly impossible. The only thing our team could do was wait until renewal came around, and renewed the hosting and domain with a better and more reliable company.

Now that we are back in business Savage Cinema plans on giving the fans of the genre exactly what they want! Issues will be coming out every 2-3 months and will continue to detail the odd, the strange, and the savage cinema of the world over the past century.

If any readers are interested in writing for Savage Cinema please drop a line to our email:, we want to hear from you.
