Redwood Details, Trailer, and Poster: "Redwood is writer/director Tom Paton’s second feature film signed to his innovative film company The Film Label.

Redwood is a horror movie about a young couple who get more than they bargained for when they ignore the Rangers advice and venture off the beaten path in a National Park, a park with a dark secret.

Tom has cast the legendary Nicholas Brendon (Xander of iconic Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV Show fame). Redwood also sees Mike Beckingham (younger brother of Simon Pegg) star in his first feature role, alongside Tatjana Nardone (Stalking Eva), Muzz Khan (Me Before You, Galavant), and Jessica- Jane Stafford (Gangsters Gamblers Geezers)

After some bad news back at home, musician Josh and his girlfriend Beth head out to a secluded national park in search of some clarity on the situation they’ll face when they return. But the couple gets more than they bargained for when they ignore the advice of Park Rangers and venture off the trail, coming face to face with The Redwood’s legendary wildlife. REDWOOD brings a fresh spin to a well-worn mythology to create an edge of your seat horror movie that will shred your nerves and will have you thinking twice about going camping again.

The film is due for release in 2017."

A Haunting at Silver Falls II Production Details: Press Release: "Los Angeles, CA (October 12, 2016) - Enderby Entertainment announced today that their genre division Tony-Seven Films has set a cast and director for the film A HAUNTING AT SILVER FALLS II, and will go into production in Oregon this December. The film will be directed by Teo Konuralp (STREET RACER, FEEDBACK) and was written by Jesse Reffsin. The project is a follow-up to the successful A HAUNTING AT SILVER FALLS, which gained an extensive online fan base from teenage bloggers, prompting a sequel.

The film will be produced by Katarina Ireland, in association with Enderby Entertainment's genre division Tony-Seven Films and Outsider Pictures. Rick Dugdale, Daniel Petrie, Jr., and Paul Hudson are Executive Producers. Outsider will be selling international territories at the upcoming American Film Market.

The logline: Several years after a deadly struggle with her serial killer aunt, Jordan, now in college, works to escape her troubled history. But when her aunt's revenge-seeking specter surfaces to join forces with a deranged convict, Jordan must return to the haunted town of Silver Falls for a final showdown with the ghosts of her past.

Reffsin was a finalist for the 2013 Austin Film Festival Enderby Entertainment Award with his sci-fi script, Sabria. He's since gone on to write multiple projects for Enderby Entertainment in addition to A HAUNTING AT SILVER FALLS II. On top of his work for film and TV, his upcoming book, Ghost, a collection of illustrated horror stories, is set for release later this month.

"Enderby Entertainment has always been a true champion for screenwriters so we're thrilled that one of our writers from the competition has forged a strong relationship with the company. This is just one of many reasons why Enderby Entertainment, Rick Dugdale, and Daniel Petrie, Jr. are fixtures at AFF and a company to watch out for," said Matt Dy, Screenplay Competition Director, Austin Film Festival.

"Enderby's genre division, Tony-Seven Films, is a place where we germinate new filmmakers, and we're proud to bring in Teo and Jesse and give them a home with us. After taking a few years off the genre label, we're seeing the marketing and distribution trends for the smaller market material starting to rebound and take on a new direction. We're excited to jump back in with this one." said Dugdale.

Enderby Entertainment's latest projects include the political thriller AN ORDINARY MAN starring Ben Kingsley and directed by Brad Silberling, which is in postproduction, and recent releases BLACKWAY starring Anthony Hopkins, Ray Liotta and Julia Stiles, as well as the surfer thriller DAWN PATROL, directed by Daniel Petrie Jr., which stars Scott Eastwood, Jeff Fahey and Rita Wilson.

About Enderby Entertainment

Los Angeles-based Enderby Entertainment most recently produced and financed the Electric Entertainment release BLACKWAY, starring Anthony Hopkins, Julia Stiles, Alexander Ludwig, Ray Liotta and Hal Holbrook and directed by the acclaimed Swedish filmmaker Daniel Alfredson. They are currently in post-production on AN ORDINARY MAN starring Ben Kingsley and directed by Brad Silberling. Enderby Entertainment was founded in 2006 by producer Rick Dugdale and writer-director-producer Daniel Petrie, Jr., who saw a need in the independent film arena for a company focused on the old-fashioned values of transparency, on the financial side, and storytelling, on the creative.
