Feo Amante Ends Updates For October

Feo Amante @ San Diego Comic Con panel
Whew! Feo fer SURE!

By E.C. McMullen Jr.
Long time fans know that Feo Amante is the nick name for me, E.C. McMullen Jr.

Some also know that I took a break from the movie industry for a bit, always with the goal in mind to return to it.

Oct. 12 was the first production meeting for the new Horror Thriller movie I'll be working on. This feature has a script that was just too damn awesome to pass up!

For those who don't know, Feo Amante's Horror Thriller is virtually a one man show. I'm grateful to all of my guest writers over the years, but I do the content setup, coding, updating, and maintenance. This Horror site is a labor of love and there is only so much time to focus on. Paying jobs like my writing and working in cinema take precedence.

So from now until Halloween Day (not including possible subsequent pick-up shots), I'll be working the rest of the month on what will be my 5th Feature film (!!!) and hopefully the best of all of them so far!

See you on Halloween Day (possibly)!

XChange with Kim Coates and Stephen Baldwin

There was a time, soon after Bryan Singer's 1995 hit, THE USUAL SUSPECTS (but also after Bio-Dome), when actor Stephen Baldwin (MERCY), in addition to having famous brothers, could carry lead in a movie by himself. At that time actor Kyle MacLachlan (BLUE VELVET, THE HIDDEN) was known and still had some clout from his turn on David Lynch's TWIN PEAKS.

Being 2000, a pre-Sons of Anarchy, Actor Kim Coates (INNOCENT BLOOD, SILENT HILL) was a trivia question usually answered with, "Who is she?"

All three of them were in an original Science Fiction movie that is chillingly close to predicting the future we live in today.

For the next 23 days, this is Feo Amante's Cinema Obscura, where I look at cool and unusual movies that are vanishing beyond our sight or attention. Today's movie is XCHANGE.

Privatreer 2: The Darkening

By E.C. McMullen Jr.
Imagine a big budget feature film shot in the lavish sets of Pinewood studios using Oscar, Golden Globe, and Emmy award winning actors. Imagine that upon its release it goes on to make mega-millions yet never plays a theater or TV set: No VHS, DVD, nothing and it will likely never have such a release.

This is the world of 1990 Video Game cut scenes and one of those movies went on to spawn a sequel that got a wide theatrical release.

For the next 26 days, this is Feo Amante's Cinema Obscura and today I'm digging up 1996 and a one of the most profitable and critically acclaimed Science Fiction Horror Thrillers.

Independent cinema, particularly foreign indie cinema, is often entangled in the seemingly byzantine process of world-wide distribution and in the U.S., even arthouse theaters, are notorious for poor showings.

CINEMA OBSCURA

By E.C. McMullen Jr.
The phrase Cinema Obscura is well over 2000 years old, describing dark interiors where a bright beam of sunlight through a pinhole in a wall or tent reveals a projection, gnomen, of the outside.

What I'm talking about here is the Cinema Obscura of rare cinema, and I'm not referring necessarily to old silent movies of the late 1800s.

Independent cinema is often entangled in the seemingly byzantine process of world-wide distribution and U.S. cinema, even arthouse, is notorious for poor showings. While major Asian producers from Jackie Chan to Stephen Chow have a long history of struggling with U.S. distributors to have their movies seen, I'm focused on Horror, Thriller, Mystery, and Suspense movies.

For the next 33 days, from October 1 through the end of November 2 and Dia de Los Muertos, come with me as I talk about good, cool, and even great movies, foreign and domestic, that continue to get hidden from their audience for many various legal reasons.

For the next 33 days, this is Feo Amante's Cinema Obscura and I'm going to tell you what is so compelling about German Director, Damir Lukacevic's, brilliant 2010 techno Horror Thriller, TRANSFER.
