Amy Hesketh just did her second podcast with John HorrorDude Ginder for A Horrorfying Blog. In it, they discuss Olalla, Bluebeard, and Dead But Dreaming. Their chat ranges from caring about one’s actors, to *gasp* nudity in the films, and everything in between. So grab a beverage, crank up your heat/cooling, and have a listen!

Great things are happening with Olalla!

The first review of Olalla has come out, and it’s great! Here’s an excerpt:

Thanks to its totally unconventional approach, Olalla is one of the most interesting vampire movies of late – these are not your typical bloodsuckers, but a typical old-fashioned family with a strict hierarchy, its black sheep (Olalla) and forbidden fruits (Ofelia), its enforcers (Felipe) and eccentrics (Erix Antoine as Uncle Bruno) – but all of this isn’t played for laughs (though there are a few) but as a drama with its gory, its violent, its sexy and its fetishistic bits, all set in rather beautifully decorated sets betraying crumbling decadence, carried by a first rate ensemble cast.” (Re)Search My Trash filmsite

And here’s a great interview with Jac Avila, producer and actor, about Olalla, in which he reveals all sorts of marvels of the making of this macabre film!

And there’s more, an amazing video from Germany, featuring the music of Andreas Gross (website here) has just been released, featuring images from Olalla!

1880s family portrait: Olalla

We have great news, on May 25th Olalla wrapped its production. All of the scenes have now been shot and we’re well into post-production.

Amy Hesketh, the director (and protagonist) has lots to say about it on her blog, which you can read at this link right here.

We’ll have more news as the post-production progresses, and don’t forget you can see lots of pictures and updates on Olalla’s Facebook page here.

In other exciting news, it looks like Amy’s next film, Debutante, based on George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion, will be going into production soon. We hope to have more news about that in the near future!

A Wonderful Review of Dead But Dreaming

Charles Lonberger of The Beverly Hills Outlook recently published this simply wonderful review of Jac Avila’s Dead But Dreaming. Here’s a sample:

“Avila’s sensibilities are, contrary to this genre’s (vampire) tradition, Baroque, not Gothic. As director, he builds his drama from within his frame, using superimpositions only fleetingly, and is most powerful in his ritualistic stagings (as in his registrations of human sacrifice and the enchained confinement of the vampire Nahara at the film’s conclusion). Given the vastness of his historical tapestry in this production, the fact that Avila’s directorial approach has much more in common with the spaghetti Westerns of Sergio Leone than the mock operatic aesthetic of Visconti, establishes his cinematic pedigree as rooted in popular culture.”
