October 5, 2019

The eight day stretch of Fantastic Fest ended last week and I'm happy to report that I didn't get the flu! Not even a sniffle. This made for watching compelling, lively, startling and humorous movies much more enjoyable. Of those I saw, Color Out of Space was a complete mind trip and it won Best Horror Picture of the festival. Of course I had to see Come To Daddy, not once but twice. Elijah is magnificent in the role as Norval Greenwood and it was a pleasure to speak personally with director, Ant Timpson, after the screening. Hopefully many others will get to see both of these fantastic films soon.

:: Elijah was not in attendance at his favorite festival, but SpectreVision's Color Out of Space and Daniel Isn't Real both opened Beyond Fest in Hollywood. Elijah was able to make it to the Q&A for Come To Daddy that showed last weekend. You can view some photos here and a video of the Q&A on YouTube. *Beware of spoilers!*

:: There are so many outstanding reviews for this trio of films, but I'm just going with one for each. Come To Daddy from Fantastic Fest, Color Out of Space from Beyond Fest, and Daniel Isn't Real from Beyond Fest.

:: I stumbled upon a behind the scenes photo from the movie and all I have to say about this is "raisin eyes." You know what I mean if you've seen the movie.

:: There are more festivals on the list for Come To Daddy, with the latest being Toronto After Dark later this month.

:: Up next for Elijah is the L.A. Comic Con next weekend. There will be a Q&A and you can still purchase tickets for photo ops and autographs.

:: Part 2 of the Movies That Made Me podcast from Trailers from Hell with Elijah and Daniel is now up.

:: The second and final season of Star Wars Resistance will begin airing tomorrow, October 6, on Disney and Disney XD. Elijah's character, Jace Rucklin, will make a return the following week on the Emmy nominated, Saturn Award winning animated series. You can read more about it here.

:: Lastly, check out these fun bitmojis of Norval. [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] You can view more of them on director, Ant Timpson's Facebook.

That's all... for now.

Just before its showing at the Toronto International Film Festival, it was announced that, Color Out of Space, was picked up by RLJE Films, the same folks who brought Mandy to theaters. You can read about the acquisition at The Hollywood Reporter.

:: At the Saturn Awards this past Friday, Mandy won Best Independent Film Release and Star Wars Resistance picked up the Best Animated Television Series Award. Congrats!

:: Elijah and Daniel have yet another podcast under their belts. This time a two-parter from Trailers from Hell.

:: Come To Daddy and SpectreVision's Color Out of Space and Daniel Isn't Real will show at Beyond Fest in Los Angeles with the directors, producers and actors all in attendance.

:: Since there won't be a trailer for Come To Daddy, because one would just give too much away, I decided to do some editing work and came up with my own trailer.

:: After a two year absence, I'm heading back to Fantastic Fest this week and I'm excited to see some of the nearly 140 films and shorts. Last time I saw 44 films. Whew! I'll be back on the flip side, hopefully not suffering from the Fantastic Flu.

That's all... for now.

Just as one convention is over, more come along. First, Elijah had a stop over at the New Mexico Comic Expo a couple of weekends ago. You can click here to see him meet and greet the fans in Albuquerque.

:: It was just announced that Elijah is scheduled to make more convention circuit visits. He'll make repeat appearances at both the L.A. Comic Con on October 12th and the Rhode Island Comic Con in November.

:: More stills from Come To Daddy are out. Along with the inset photo there's this one and this one. Elijah's peculiar style in the film has earned a prestigious award from the Arrow FrightFest Festival which took place late August. He was given a nod for Best actor, but took top honors for the Most Savage Haircut. Judging from these images, it's well deserved!

:: Looking at the festival guide, Come To Daddy was the opening night film at FrightFest and took the night, and possibly the festival by storm. Countless attendees hailed it as one of the best, if not the best film of the festival and there were more great reviews from The Hollywood News, Love Horror , Filmotomy and Wicked Horror .
Incidentally, the film currently is sitting pretty at a 94% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

:: SpectreVision's indie darling, Daniel Isn't Real, also screened at the festival and was up for several awards as well. But it snagged the Jury Prize for Best Feature at Popcorn Frights Film Festival. Way to go!

:: Lastly, Elijah dropped by the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin just prior to a Lord of the Rings Trilogy Feast. The food and drinks that were offered up were inspired by the films. It must have been a wonderful time with all those meals and a great movie. [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7]

That's all... for now.

Elijah and Daniel's tour of podcasts continues. First they sat down with Mick Garris' Post Mortem on Fangoria, and then Justin Beahm Radio Hour. The talks go deep with discussions about SpectreVision, Visitations, horror films and its affect on culture. My favorite statement out of them is how SpectreVision is the United Artists of genre. Here are some photos from their visit with Mr. Garris. [1] [2] [3] [4]

:: The inset photo along with this one are fresh new stills from Come to Daddy.

:: SpectreVision's latest film, the much anticipated, Color Out of Space, will make its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, running from September 5-15th.

:: Becoming a festival and indie favorite, another SpectreVision film, Daniel Isn't Real, is up for a total of 11 awards, including Best Feature Film, Director and Visual Effects. This time from the FilmQuest Festival also taking place in September in Utah.

:: Resuming this fall on Disney, the trailer for the second and final season of the Emmy nominated, Star Wars Resistance, came out this week. There's no sign of Elijah's character, Jace Rucklin, but I'm curious to see where the story goes.

:: Elijah will be at the New Mexico Comic Con this weekend with a discussion on Sunday. Hopefully some images and videos will pop up from his two day stint there. If so, they will be featured in the next update.

That's all... for now.

Kicking off with some awesome news from SpectreVision. You can soon see more projects from the production company as they are expanding into the realm of television by partnering with Legendary Television Studios, the makers of The Expanse and Netflix's Lost In Space. You can read more about their small screen deal here.

:: After showing at several film festivals, Daniel Isn't Real, has finally released a spoiler-free trailer for the award winning film.

:: With the huge success of SpectreVision's podcast, Visitations, Elijah and Daniel were answering the questions for a recent Shock Waves podcast. Their segment begins at the 53:50 mark.

:: Ant Timpson, director of Come to Daddy, sat down for an interview prior to the New Zealand International Film Festival which runs through August 11th.

:: Just a couple more weeks until Elijah makes another run at a convention for autographs, photos and a Q&A. This time it's the New Mexico Comic Con, happening August 16th-18th.

:: With close to 40 "weird and wonderful" movies announced in the first wave, Come to Daddy will join them at Elijah's favorite film festival, Fantastic Fest in September. I'm happy to say after a two year absence, I'll be back in celebration of the festival's 15th year.

That's all... for now.
