Tony Todd Joins Realm of Shadows: "Horror legend Tony Todd will star in the thriller film Realm of Shadows. This much-anticipated film is a world of mystery, possession, and shadows in an anthology of short horror-themed tales woven into a full-length feature presentation. Even the most shocking stories are based on true events.

Todd plays Fr. Dudley, a long-time Catholic priest, dedicated to his profession. Fr. Dudley must watch out for his close friend Robby Duray, played by Jimmy Drain (The Initiation), during a testing time in Robby's life. He also takes on the volatile task of taming Robby's diabolic alter ego, and steer him away from the snares of Satan. Cassandra, played by Vida Ghaffari (Fox’s The Mindy Project) is the alluring and mysterious muse of Master Makin...the mysterious owner of the haunted vault near Strain City's infamous cemetery and narrator of the shadows for our feature presentation. There is tension between her and her acolyte Corey, played by Denise Gurule (Investigation Discovery’s House of Horrors: Kidnapped).

This film also stars Lauren C. Mayhew, Jodi Lynn Thomas, Gregg Stone, Caustic Scifidelic, Mark Fowler and Noah Anderson.

Production is underway by ThunderKnight Entertainment LTD in Denver, Colorado.

Drain and Robert Beiber wrote the screenplay. Drain and Brian McCulley is the film’s director.

Todd is best known for the Candyman franchise and the Final Destination franchise. Todd is set to be featured in the upcoming Candyman reboot. Ghaffari’s credits include Fox’s The Mindy Project and ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live. Ghaffari recently starred in the action film Eternal Code opposite Scout Taylor-Compton."

Conductor to Premiere at Horror Imaginings and Teaser Released: "Alex Noyer is excited to announce his directorial debut, the short film Conductor, will premiere at Horrible Imaginings this weekend before embarking on a festival run. The seven-minute film follows a music engineer as she mentors a young aficionado through composing a beat for a once in a lifetime competition, with devastating consequences.

The 808 producer wanted to not only study the use of drum machines and beat making in a horror setting but also contemplate the price of the pursuit of fame along with the consequences of today's need for instant gratification.

Conductor will screen first at Santa Ana's Horrible Imaginings. The film will appear in the Faith, Livelihood, and Identity Short Film block, screening September 2nd at 11 am at the Frida Cinema.

Conductor will then travel to downtown Provo, UT for the Film Quest Film Festival. It will screen September 7 at 9 pm in the Midnight Madness Shorts block at Velour.

Alexis, a sound engineer, helps an aspiring musician, Josh, win the drum machine of his dreams in a competition in a mall. She mentors him and helps him find his groove to compose the winning beat. Once he submits his creation, it triggers a chain reaction revealing the competition booth to be a gruesome contraption. Through Josh's beat and horrific death, Alexis' creative design comes to fruition directing the macabre music she envisioned."
