Portal Runner is the name of an infamous video game from the early 2000s. It was so bad it sunk the company that made it. Because of this, the words “Portal” and “Runner” together will always generate a smirk from a crowd in the know. Maybe someone should’ve told Kairos Productions and Terror Films, who wound up using the title for a family-orientied sci-fi thriller due out this Christmas.
Nolan’s family carries a forgotten secret…the ability to generate portals to parallel worlds. Only Nolan himself knows about it, and he decides to use that power pretty much immediately, figuring he can find a better family than the one he’s got. But nope, every new dimension has a family just as bad, and worse yet, there’s an evil presence chasing him now, angry that he’s messing up spacetime.
Portal Runner (the movie) stars Elise Eberle (Shameless, Salem, The Last Tycoon, Tiger Eyes, Lemonade Mouth, The Astronaut Farmer), Sloane Morgan Siegel (Dwight in Shining Armor, The Call, Gortimer Gibbon’s Life on Normal Street, Partners), Carol Roscoe (If There’s a Hell Below, West of Redemption, The Dark Horse) and Brian S. Lewis (The Gamers series, Dwight in Shining Armor again, JourneyQuest). It was was directed by Cornelia Duryée from a screenplay by Tallis Moore, which was based on a story by J.D. Henning.
We don’t know if Kairos and Terror Films are aware of the Portal Runner video game, but there is a shot of a Dreamcast in one of the promotional stills….which actually means nothing because Portal Runner never came out on the Dreamcast. The movie will appear on demand December 10.

So Gravitas Ventures and The Last Motel, the folks behind the upcoming VOD horror flick Autumn Road, are aware the movie is a bit late. It’s obviously meant to capitalize on the Halloween season, but will end up missing it by nearly a month. At least it made it under
What’s with That Cold Dead Look In Your Eyes? I’m not talking about you, I’m talking about a new “hybrid” movie from Dark Star Pictures. Is it a horror flick? A suspense story? Sci-fi? Comedy? At times it can be any one of these things. The film’s protagonist, Leonard, seems
