The Stranger in Us available December 7th!

Inside all of us there is longing, regret, love, and a stranger that we hope to one day meet.

The Stranger in Us, the debut feature film from Scott Boswell, is a film that examines the trying journey of discovering oneself.

The story unfolds when a small-town gay man named Anthony follows his new boyfriend Stephen to San Francisco. Anthony's life turns into a nightmare when their unstable relationship falls apart. Alone and in an unfamiliar city, Anthony prowls the darkest streets of San Francisco where he finds an eclectic group of hook-ups and strangers, but ultimately not what he's looking for. He then meets Gavin, a street hustler who quenches his desire for a human connection, but his inner struggles rage on.

The Stranger in Us is a heartfelt and tender story of a young man's journey to discover himself that will grip its viewers with strong acting and sharp direction.

Do not miss the film that Michael Fox of SF Weekly called "fresh, moody and occasionally poetic".

The Stranger in Us will be available on DVD December 7.

Spotlight on: Brain Dead Director Kevin Tenney!

With the release of his newest film Brain Dead, Tenney further cements himself as a master filmmaker. For those of you unfamiliar with the cult director, here’s a brief history of how he rose to legendary status with horror aficionados:

After a foreshadowing adventure behind the camera in the sixth grade, Tenney officially began his career at the University of Southern California where he was the first, and still only, student to direct both a senior and graduate film. Both projects earned him recognition; with an Emmy Award for the Best Student Production of The Year for his senior project and an agent at ICM as well as a three picture deal for his graduate work.

He impressed audiences and critics alike with his debut film Witchboard, which became a high grossing cult classic in theaters and went on to sell over 100,000 cassette copies. It was a huge success when it premiered on HBO, beating out other higher budget films and original programs. Tenney followed up on his success with a slew of well received films, such as Night of the Demons, Witchboard 2, The Second Arrival, The Cellar, Night of the Demons II, and most recently, Brain Dead. His films are known for their strong acting, stylish cinematography and unusually well-drawn characters.

Kevin Tenney does not consider himself just a horror director, although his previous works are fine proof that he has a niche in the field. His current film Brain Dead has won numerous film festival awards and has been called “a stylish centerfold of the 80’s awesomeness genre” by Cinesploitation. Tenney has been described as having “concocted his own special blend of blackened brain matter, parasitic perversity, and comic debris.”

Brain Dead, a story about flesh eating zombies tormenting an unlikely group of survivors (including escaped convicts, a televangelist, and lost hikers) is available now on DVD through Breaking Glass Pictures.

A mind is a terrible thing to taste...

Cult director Kevin Tenney is back this Halloween with his viciously funny new film “Brain Dead”.

Tenney, who demanded a following of horror film fanatics with films like “Witchboard” and “Night of the Demons”, has made a film in “Brain Dead” with not only bloody goodness, but also with razor-sharp dialogue.

In “Brain Dead” a group of lost travelers are held up in a small mountain cabin as a brain hungry zombie looms in the shadows. When the travelers come toe to decrepit toe with the zombie their fates vary, but the results are both shocking and tremendously gory.

The most enticing aspect of “Brain Dead” is its incredible use of CGI special effects that are often over-the-top, but very satisfying. Tenney has changed the zombie film culture with the use of these effects, and with expertly staged zombie attack scenes.

So, whether you are a die hard fan of Kevin Tenney films, or just a casual moviegoer you don’t want to miss out on the most entertaining, and yes bloody, film of the Halloween season. “Brain Dead” comes out on October 26th.
