DFH Movie Poster

Austin, Texas heavy metal frontman, Ven Scott(Runescarred) has announced screening events and the official release for his debut horror short, Date from Hell. The first screening will be September 13th at GAS MONKEY Bar & Grill in Dallas, TX, as part of their CORPSEPAINT SHOW PARTY benefiting FOUNDATION 45 Powered by FANGORIA, where the film can be viewed alongside “Satanic Panic” and “Road Trash“. The second screening, coinciding with the film’s official release on ALTER, will be September 16th at Independence Brewing Company in Austin, TX. This will be coupled with the official INDIGNANT DOG FILMS formation party, celebrating the creation of IDF whose founders (Ven Scott, Brandon Torres, and Tracee Beebe) were thrown together for the production of Date From Hell.

Player

“It is important that we unleash “Date From Hell” on as large a platform as ALTER in tandem with the Indignant Dog Films launch party because without DFH there would be no IDF. Date From Hell not only pulled me back into the film industry but that movie brought Brandon, Tracee and I together. There was no way we were going to continue without one another at that point. Indignant Dog Films is the direct product of the collaborative and creative spirit we each bring to our work. It is our key stone and our launch pad!” – Ven Scott

Early Praise for “Date From Hell:

“This film was a really nice surprise and I don’t think the title does it justice – not that I can think of a better one – because for some reason I was not expecting to enjoy it as much as I did. What’s nice is that I really believe the main couple throughout every point of the film and, when we see the scene of them arguing in the bar, you think “oh man, here we go again”, because you probably know ‘that couple’ from your own local.” – HorrorNews.net

“utterly compelling and a great tribute to those 80’s movies us horror fans hold so dear and I would certainly pay good money to see more. What seems like a labour of love for Ven Scott, will hopefully help to propel him into the major leagues so that in the near future we can all enjoy Date From Hell on the big screen” – Chris Andrews – Mass Movement

“Date From Hell tosses in quite a bit of gore then a little more in just the right ways. If this debut short from Ven Scott is any indicator of the guy’s talent behind the camera, here’s hoping this isn’t the last we hear from him.” – Richard Propes – The Independent Critic

“If you see Date From Hell playing at a festival near you, make sure you get your arcane ass in a seat toot-fuckin’-sweet…a better short you’d be hard pressed to find in our beloved horror biz!” – Horror Fuel

COYOTE KID Channel QUENTIN TARANTINO in Modern Film Noire, Official Music Video for “Femme Fatale”!

IMG 5993e2 1

Minnesota based, cinematic rock band COYOTE KID has released the darkly film noir music video for their new single, “Femme Fatale,” the first single off of their upcoming album, The Skeleton Man. Originally premiered on mxdwn.com, “Femme Fatale” was directed by Christopher Behnen and Dena Winter.

“We’re thrilled to present ‘Femme Fatale. A Tarantino inspired short film shot entirely on real 16mm film, telling the story of a dangerous woman and her vampiric car.” – COYOTE KID

player

“The clip begins ominously, with headlights illuminating a remote wildland, crickets humming and a appropriately, a coyote cackling in the distance. We’re introduced to the central character of the video, our “Femme Fatale.” She enters the shot walking back to the car that has its headlights on, carrying a gasoline container. We soon find out what the purpose of the canister is — and it’s not because she ran out of gas on a lonely highway and had to walk to the nearest service station to fill up the container.

Then, the music finally enters the mix and it’s heart-pounding rock ‘n roll, with lead singer Austin Durry’s vocals cutting powerfully through the mix. Throughout the song, accompaniment like Baumgartner’s trombone add to the swinging The video focuses on the engine of our anti-hero’s VW bug, which pounds and pulsates as she drives, leaking a mysterious red substance. In the next scene, she picks up a man who appears to be assaulting someone, seemingly easy pickings for the “Femme Fatale.”

But first she makes a kill with the unsuspecting man sleeping in the back of the car. As a jogger runs by she bludgeons him to death with a wrench, with her new friend helping out with the assault. At this point, it becomes clear that the woman is killing to feed her car’s insatiable thirst for blood..” – MATT MATASCI– mxdwn.com

CK COVER PHOTO kickstarter

The band has launched a Kickstarter Campaign to help fund The Skeleton Man, a full-length, cinematic alt-rock concept album, telling the post-apocalyptic, western tale of The Coyote Kid.

“This new story album is titled The Skeleton Man. The sound is large and aggressive, but more stylistically diverse then any of our previous releases. We wanted to take the cinematic sound we established in our previous albums and expand it to encompass more musical influences and a larger emotional range. From dynamic drums, growling bass, and shimmering spaghetti-western guitars, to soaring trumpets and bellowing trombones, the stage is set for this supernatural, post-apocalyptic western. This is, by far, the most dynamic work we have ever compiled. Each record will be pressed on beautiful marble vinyl, and will include the full album story and lyrics, a poster insert, and a pair of red and blue lenses that reveal both sides of The Skeleton Man cover art.”

Cinematic is the word most often used to describe Minneapolis based Coyote Kid’s sound. Precise yet primitive jungle drums set the stage for the eclectic and powerful ensemble to sweep you away into their haunting world. Like oil and water, Durry’s true grit voice alongside Cassandra’s crystal clarity form a stirring, yet beautiful contrast. All being thrusted foreword by shimmering spaghetti-western guitars, growling base, and soaring brass. Their lyrics paint a thrilling picture of monsters and ghosts, murderers and thieves, love and guilt, and everything in between. Previously known as Marah in the Mainsail, Coyote Kid has been earning their stripes and touring the US and Canada since 2015, slowly carving their unique place between genres in the music industry.

Ven Scott (Runescarred, ex-Dead Earth Politics) Directorial Debut “DATE FROM HELL” Horror Short

DFH Movie Poster

Austin, Texas heavy metal frontman, Ven Scott (Runescarred, ex-Dead Earth Politics), has completed his directorial debut “DATE FROM HELL”.

Player

Running at just under twelve minutes, “Date From Hell” is currently being submitted to festivals across the U.S., Canada and beyond. Filmed over a period of three nights in Llano, Texas the goal was to create a film clearly inspired by 1980’s horror masters. Of the film Scott says, “This became way more than I imagined. Much bigger than I hoped, and I am incredibly proud of this. The friendship and guidance from both Brandon Torres (cinematographer/producer) and Tracee Beebe (co-writer/producer) was and remains immeasurable. I can’t wait to share it with everyone!”

Scott adds that he hopes to make the film available to the public late in 2019, after the festival circuit has completed for the film.
