Watch a Clip from Cold Skin: "This is a reminder that Samuel Goldwyn Films is releasing COLD SKIN in select US theaters, this September. Plus, COLD SKIN will show OnDemand and on Digital, in North America, on September 7th. Now, a new, exciting clip is available to celebrate the impending release, titled “Midnight Attack!”

COLD SKIN includes a stellar cast and crew. The film was directed by French Extreme director Xavier Gens, of Frontier(s) (2007) and The Divide (2011) fame. As well, COLD SKIN stars Ray Stevenson (“Black Sails”), David Oakes (“The Living and the Dead”) and Aura Garrido (The Body, 2012). Garrido is almost unrecognizable as the sea creature Aneris. All of these filmmakers come together in one of this year’s most entertaining releases.

Finally, a new clip has been released for COLD SKIN - titled “Midnight Attack.” The clip shows Gruner (Stevenson) and a young weather observer (Oakes) fighting for survival, on a remote island. A lighthouse provides some shelter. But, everyone is in jeopardy when an army of sea monsters emerge, from the coastline. Horror and thriller fans can see Gens’ most adventurous film to date, on film fans’ favourite Digital platforms or in theatres, this September 7th.

The official synopsis: On a remote island in the Antarctic circle, a young man finds himself trapped in a battle for his life against nightly invasions of unknown creatures that emerge from the ocean.

*theatre locations: Los Angeles (Arena Cinelounge), Cleveland (Tower City Cinema), Phoenix (Harkins Arizona Mills), Denver (Harkins Northfield), Dallas (Harkins Southlake), Atlanta (Plaza Theatre), Austin (Galaxy Highland), Detroit (Emagine Canton), Minneapolis (Emagine Lakeville) and Seattle (Galaxy Monroe)."


e-Demon Q&A: "Jeremy Wechter’s e-DEMON may look like Unfriended, but it has a “larger scope” than the latter, says the film’s writer/director.

Did you do any short films or tests before popping your feature-length film cherry?

Jeremy Wechter: I’ve directed tons of short narrative films, commercials and full-length stage-plays including an Off-Broadway Musical. But I was ready to dive in and direct a feature movie. The challenge is producing said movie. So I came up with a way to make it happen (and this was prior to Unfriended coming out) which was the webcam movie. I had directed a webcam short movie back in 2007.

When did you know it was time to jump into a full-length feature?

Jeremy Wechter: I knew it was time to finally direct a feature when I set up a meeting with folks to direct my next short movie, and I had a revelation right then and there. If I can produce a short movie, then I should be able to figure out a way to produce a feature. I reversed engineered the idea based on what I was able to produce in terms of resources, location, equipment, and crew. And then I really loved the idea that emerged: A supernatural being who used to technology to controls and divides us.

What’s the best part of directing your own script?

Jeremy Wechter: As opposed to directing someone else’s script? I suppose the best part is knowing the characters and story so intimately since I created them.

And how would you say your film differs from similar-themed films like UNFRIENDED and SEARCHING?

Jeremy Wechter: Again, for the record, I wrote my screenplay before Unfriended came out. e-DEMON is very different from Unfriended. Our story’s complex antagonist is rooted in history and has an agenda for the future. In addition, e-DEMON has a larger scope than Unfriended, that includes a much larger cast, more locations, plus bike rides, car rides, car crashes, and simple fight sequences. While e-DEMON centers on an intimate group of friends, there’s a sense at the end that this is just the beginning of the problem as it spreads to affect larger segments of society. There are pluses and minuses to this approach. I was able to use a smaller crew and the lighting is more manageable shooting like this. However, unlike old-school found footage movies this webcam movie can’t cut away whenever it wants since it’s all set in real-time with a bunch of windows opened at any given time. Each location in every window of the video-chat was shot totally separately. Therefore, we had to shoot the movie from beginning to end in every single location then move on to the next location and start all over again.

What was the post-production process like for e-DEMON?

Jeremy Wechter: Editing a movie like this was a unique challenge. Since most of the movie has two to five windows open at any given time, it was like editing multiple movies simultaneously while needing to keep them matched up. Our post-production wizard Matt Brunson-Cline was really able to work his magic when putting all the pieces of the puzzle together.

Is your movie a warning to avid technology users?

Jeremy Wechter: e-DEMON is a fun, mysterious creepy, rollercoaster ride. But it also happens to be plugging right into the zeitgeist at the moment. Lately, a lot of people are concerned with a mysterious evil force using technology to divide society and turn us against each other. And that’s just what I happened to write in the screenplay several years ago before all this was happening.

e-DEMON screens theatrically in L.A (Sep 14) and NYC (Sep 21) with a VOD release on 9/14."
