Latest News.

While it's been a while since we've last updated, we're still here.

We've moved to a new office in sunny Los Angeles, California, and are continuing to refine the movie there. Always working on improving the sound, the effects, the overall story edit.

In the meantime, we wanted to prepare our fans for the next big set of news: We're finally getting offers for domestic theatrical runs. No specific details just yet, but you'll start seeing us in Los Angeles and New York.

Keep checking back with us for more news. We're still out there working for you!

Fangoria Reviews The Revenant.

We've gotten a great 4 skull review of The Revenant, courtesy of Chris Alexander at Fangoria Magazine!

Among the highlights, we got a great closing comment: "Please, God, let some savvy distributor pick this thing up and make sure it gets a theatrical run. It’s the toughest, scrappiest, most satisfying and amusing horror film I’ve seen all year, full stop."

Thanks to our friends at Fangoria, and we hope that we'll be able to deliver some good news on that in the near future.

Zombie Friends Unite!

Have you visited our profile over at Zombie Friends.Com?

It's our social networking profile that focuses on the horror genre, with emphasis on zombies, vampires and the undead in general. Considering that a revenant is a little bit of all that already, it's been a perfect match and a welcome home for us for over a year now.

With a 1,500+ (and growing) member base, we're always looking to meet new horror fans that would like a fresh take from our horror/comedy, so drop by and add us!

Our Facebook Page: "Like" Vs. "Become A Fan".

Just so that our Facebook fans know, Facebook has done this new thing where they have changed the wording to "Become A Fan" to "Like" when you want to join up with a movie related (or any other fan group).

While I'm guessing they wanted the wording to sound less... committed(?) when it comes to expressing interest in a page, it still does the exact same thing, and you will still join and become a member of our page.

We hope this clears up any confusion that our readers may have had in wanting to become a part of our Facebook page.

The Revenant Takes Home New Awards!

Classic Reviews: The Zed Word.

We ran across this older, but still great review on The Revenant from last year.

Kerry Vs. The Volcano.

For those of you who attended the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival, Kerry was all set to attend the screening (he even translated a little introduction into French so that he could introduce the movie to our fans overseas).

Unfortunately, that volcano in Iceland that erupted ash and grit over the weekend kept a lot of travelers from leaving or getting into Brussels, so Kerry was unfortunately not able to find a flight that could travel through those conditions.

While The Revenant Team wanted to make an appearance this past weekend, unfortunately, Mother Nature just had other plans for us. Those who did get a chance to see the movie, we hope you enjoyed it all the same, and you are welcome to share your impressions with us (We'd love to hear them).

It takes a lot to keep a good undead buddy flick down, you know.

Join Our Official Facebook Page!

We're looking to get 1,000 fans on The Revenant's Official Facebook Page by the end of this week. We are currently at 383 fans. We really need and appreciate the support right now, as we are trying to show our investors and distributors that yes, we have a dedicated fanbase, and this can help us to get picked up and distributed for a Fall 2010 theatrical release. We're asking each of our fans to recommend our site to at least 10 (or more) of their friends. We'll even make it more interesting.

Those who can show us how many friends they've actually gotten to join, we have cool prizes such as matching Bart and Joey T-shirts or Chris Wylde autographs to give out to the most dedicated and hardest working fans. We're still working out the details, but we want to see how "hardcore" our true fans can be in spreading the news!

Do it, or we'll send zombies to your house to eat you (or not eat you, depending on your preference).

Preview of "The Revenant" In Fangoria #293.

It's been a long time since we've last updated, but we're still alive (or as much as the undead can be these days) and haven't been sitting around just resting on our laurels. We're working to keep improving The Revenant's overall quality with better picture quality, better audio... maybe an added scene or two?!?

But we're going to be have a preview of the film in Issue #293 of Fangoria, so be sure to check it out when it hits the newsstands soon.

(We even made a mention on the cover.)
