We’re used to getting movie notifications from indie horror distributor Uncork’d Entertainment frequently, but their output seems to be slowing down. This coming month they have just two releases on the dock: It Came From Below and Royal Jelly.
In the first movie, a man claims to anyone who will listen that a monster lurks within the local lake and has claimed many victims. No one listens to him (all those disappearances are probably nothing to worry about, right?) so he sets out to the lake to prove the monster’s existence…and disappears himself. His daughter, Jessie, fears the worst and decides she has to rescue him. Deep in the caves below the lake, she’ll meet the source of the community’s terror. It Came From Below stars Megan Purvis, Tom Taplin, Jake Watkins, and Georgie Banks, and was written and directed by Dan Allen.
The second movie, Royal Jelly, is a riff on The Fly (Cronenberg version) where a reclusive high schooler named Aster cares about nothing but beekeeping. A mysterious figure named Tresa tells her she has much experience in the hobby and can show Aster everything she’s done — if Aster is dumb enough to follow a stranger into a weird house. Turns out she is, and now that she’s imprisoned in Tresa’s demented apiary, she could be mutated into the queen of her hive. We don’t have any further details for this one because Uncork’d repeated the press links for It Came From Below twice instead of posting two separate ones. Ah well.
It Came From Below will be out on digital platforms September 7 and Royal Jelly will be released September 14, both from Uncork’d Entertaiment.
Here’s a new one from Uncork’d Entertainment: The Darkness Of The Road. This horror thriller will be out in the middle of next month. This one begins on a remote road in the middle of the desert, where a single mom and her daughter are commuting. It isn’t defined where
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
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
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
