The Sitges Film Festival just ended and director of Mandy, Panos Cosmatos, walked away with the Best Director award. Congratulations!

:: Here's an interview Elijah gave on the success of Mandy. Since opening a month ago, the film has topped $1 million dollars at the box office, gaining more praise and dollars as the number of theaters diminish.

:: Even more awards are lining up SpectreVision's mantel. Transference won for the Best Interactive Narrative VR Experience and best Immersive Story at the recent Raindance Film Festival.

:: The upcoming video game, 11-11: Memories Retold will donate proceeds to the charity, War Child UK. You can read more about it here, as well as watch a video of Elijah explaining more about the game and the charity.

:: Just in time for Halloween, Eli Roth's new program, History of Horror debuted last night on AMC. Elijah is one the many guest speaking about the craft of the genre and their experiences with horror movies. Zombies, ghosts and vampires are all welcome.

:: It has been announced that Elijah will make his first appearance in the Frankenstein episode on Drunk History on Comedy Central. If you've never seen the show, it's an hilarious take on American history told by an intoxicated narrator and performed by actors.

:: The inset image of Tony from I Don't Feel at Home in this World Anymore is by artist and animator, Matt Pierce. He also created this piece for Mandy.

:: Lastly, Elijah tweeted, "Totally down with a duo flick!" in response to a question asked of Daniel Radcliffe in a video favoring doing a movie together. Make it happen guys!

That's all... for now.

Another Fantastic Fest is in the books, and this year marked Elijah's first time as a board member. The partners of SpectreVision held a presentation about their VR experience, Transference, and there was the usual shenanigans happening. Check out the pics.

:: Take a listen to a very good audio interview Elijah gave about Transference.

:: Disney and Elijah back together again? Sort of. He will guest star on the animated show Star Wars Resistance. It's a five part series, and Elijah can be heard in the episode, Fuel For The Fire, as Jace Rucklin on October 21st. Not as snazzy looking as Tron: Uprising, but it looks like fun. Read more about it.

:: Here's a nice interview on Forbes about the formation and process of NoWhere, the production company that's heading Elijah's latest film, Come To Daddy.

:: Finally, I checked out the film Mandy. Even before Nicolas Cage gets his revenge on, it's already an attack on your senses. It's brutal at times, but hypnotic nevertheless. If this movie is playing at a theater near you, see it. If not, the lesser alternative is to catch it on VOD and streaming. Tick off another for SpectreVision.

That's all... for now.

The partners at SpectreVision were on hand with director Panos Cosmatos and star Nicolas Cage for the premiere of their film, Mandy, last week. You can check out the photos here and a video from the red carpet.

:: With the premiere, still more rave reviews are coming in for the film from Entertainment Weekly, io9 and Parade Magazine.

:: Here's a video interview from Rolling Stone with Nic Cage about the movie and explains how Elijah got him involved with production.

:: Mandy is now showing at theaters in select cities across the U.S. If not playing near you, it's on VOD such as iTunes and Google Play, and available for DVD/Blu ray pre-order at Amazon which comes out October 30th.

:: A few fans taking photos with Elijah on a recent trip to Copenhagen. [1] [2] [3]

:: Taken on set of Come To Daddy, here's a photo of Elijah with part of the crew.

:: Under the radar, news has come of a project Elijah is attached to. It's a documentary called, Panama Papers, where he is narrator. You can read more about the film at Deadline.

:: Lastly, much deserved congratulations goes to Autumn de Wilde for winning a Gold Clio Award for her sprightly series of short films, The Postman Dreams 2, which featured Elijah.

That's all... for now.

From the inset photo, looks like just as Elijah wrapped up filming Come to Daddy in Vancouver, he went and sprained his ankle. He's taking care of it with a fresh haircut, fresh coffee and a fresh boot. The photo was taken by his good friend, Ms. Autumn de Wilde.

:: Hopefully he'll be mended as the premiere of Mandy will happen on September 11th at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood. No confirmation if SpectreVision will be in attendance, but the film has landed on must-see lists from the likes of Rolling Stone, io9, USA Today and The Playlist.

:: Advanced showings for Mandy will screen at over 200 theaters on Thursday, September 13th, so grab your tickets early!

:: The VR gaming experience of Transference is coming soon and there is a demo trailer and an awesome preview available to watch. GameRant has posted a review of the game play.

:: Not as realistic, but equally striking footage of 11-11: Memories Retold video game is out. Here is the trailer and 17 minutes of an engaging painted war story. This would even be cool as an animated film for us non-gamers.

:: After a bit of waiting and corresponding, I finally received my Dirk Gently auction item. The shirt worn by Todd in the final moments of the last episode of season one is now hanging in my closet, soon to be proudly displayed in a hermetically sealed frame so no more moths can get at it.

:: At some point, at some time, there will be other Dirk promotions to enjoy. You can sign up to receive information when they become available. There is a link on the season 2 Dirk Gently page, directly under the Save Dirk petition link.

:: Lastly, here is a fan video created by Romina showcasing young Elijah.

That's all... for now.

Now we know where Elijah has been keeping himself all this time. I've known he's been in Vancouver for a spell and that's because he just finished shooting a film there. The movie is called Come to Daddy and it's the directorial debut from Ant Timpson, producer of The Greasy Strangler.

:: The film is being produced by Nowhere, the newly established production company with Elijah's girlfriend, Mette-Marie Kongsved as one of the partners. Along with the hipster, impressionistic painter appearance Elijah sported for the film in the inset photo, there are a couple more images [1] [2]. You can read more about the production company and movie premise at Variety.

:: The soundtrack for Mandy is available on Apple Music and iTunes for pre-order, and the late great Johann Johannsson has been nominated for Best Film Composer of the Year for the World Soundtrack Awards, with five nominated movies, including Mandy.

:: We know Nicolas Cage is a stellar actor, but his performance in Mandy was inspired by a surprising source. The film hits theaters September 14th.

That's all... for now.

SpectreVision announced last week that shooting has started on their latest film, Daniel Isn't Real, co-starring one of Elijah's Dirk Gently cast mates.

:: Here's Elijah speaking more about his character in the upcoming video game, 11:11 Memories Retold.

:: Check out this Dirk Gently audition video from Hannah Marks playing out a scene between her character, Amanda with Todd and Dirk. We need more of these!

:: The inset photo shows a pewter gold and deep olive plaid flannel shirt worn by Elijah. It features front buttons, a left breast pocket and accentuated with various rips and tears, styling the shabby, not chic look worn by those trying to make ends meet. At the Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency auction, this piece was sold to Deenan in support of one of her favorite television shows, and proceeds will go to Save the Rhinos. Congratulations to all the other winners, especially to the now owner of Suzie's wand. If that gives you ripped abs, let's talk.

That's all... for now.

A tune from the soundtrack for Mandy, which was Johann Johannsson's last composition before he passed, is available to listen to online.

:: San Diego Comic Con starts this week and Elijah will be there. By camera that is. Legion M, who is working with SpectreVision on the movie, will show footage of Mandy, and Elijah has planned a video message for those attending. You can read more about it here.

:: Made in Japan documentary where Elijah narrated and produced is now available on Vimeo on Demand, Amazon, and various cable and satellite providers.

:: In case you missed the animated show, Summer Camp Island's marathon last weekend, you can sign up, log in, and watch the first season, including the episode Elijah voiced as a Yeti in Saxaphone Come Home. Here's a little preview.

:: Elijah has been back to Vancouver in the past few days and took a photo with a local resident. Isn't he the best?

:: With more articles added, there's only a week left for bidding on Dirk Gently props and wardrobe items at Screenbid. I may take my chances on one of them to have something authentic from the program.

That's all... for now.
