Casting Call of Cthulhu Calls Continue

If you find yourself in Uruguay from May 15 to 22 the check out Montevideo Fantastico. The Festival is the only event in Uruguay specialized in horror, sci-fi, fantastic and bizarre films. Its objective is to divulge once a year independent and generally low budget productions that are frequently considered as part of a “minor genre” and who almost never have accesss to commercial and even cultural circuits.  And Casting Call of Cthulhu will be there.  We still got it.

It’s A Bird, It’s A Plane, It’s A Half Polypous, Utterly Alien Entity

Producing Casting Call of Cthulhu failed to provoke insanity, although watching  it drove a few people crazy, and the Bad Advice for Good Times crew lived to film again.  The new short was colour transferred just yesterday and sound post will finish next week.  But be forewarned – there is no escaping madness this time around.  To prepare you for what is to come we offer here a small, untextured, uncoloured sample of the horror that awaits you.  Warning:  The final character will be only partly material and you may experience temporary lapses of visibility.

First of Three New HPL Films Now In Post-Production

In October, Bad Advice for Good Times announced that Joseph Nanni (Casting Call of Cthulhu) would be following up the success of his freshman effort with a new short.  He wasn’t fhtagn around.  Filming finished late last Monday, the rough-cut is in the can, and the footage is now in the hands of 4 Stroke animation who will be realizing another HPL inspired beastie with the same awesomeness they brought to the Great Race.  The short was shot with Red Camera by D.P. Ray Dumas.  Nanni says, “the film is funni-er than the one other film I have done.”

I Can Haz Amberg Horror Fest?

If you live in Europe and you love Casting Call of Cthulhu then we have a hard time believing you because the film has yet to be shown in Europe.  CCoC will have its European premiere at the Amberg Horror Festival, OKT 28 to NOV 2.  So go see it and then say you love it.  You don’t have to lie to impress us – we like you for who you are.  Oh wait, the film is on the Internet, and Yog Sothoth, and Youtube, and thousands of Europeans have already seen it.  Awkward.  We’re sorry.  Look, things have been stressful at work and sometimes we just forget who we’re talking to.  How ’bout this, Friday we’ll go for dinner and catch a movie, just us?

Horror Comedy Sneaks into Proper Festival

Casting Call of Cthulhu (conveniently reffered to as CCoC) has made its way into a festival where the majority of attendees are unlikey to know what a cone-shaped creature is, let alone debate whether its head should be a yellow orb with flowers sprouting from the top.  The Indie Memphis Film Festival in Memphis Tennessee, a town immortalized by Paul Simon in his song “Graceland”, runs from October 9 to 16.  CCoC screens Friday, October 10 at 10 pm.  While you are there check out the tomb of Elvis Presley – scary.

Spooky Movie 2008 Ain’t Fhtagn Around

The Spooky Movie Film Festival is quite possibly the most misleading fest’ name of the genre.  “Spooky” implies a few jumps and gasps.  Well we’ve just watched the trailer and we’re talking more churns and craps.  Seriously – this thing looks ‘ard core, people.  Thankfully, CCoC is on the roster to lighten the mood.  The festival runs from October 16 to 20.  Our film screens Sunday, October 19 at 12:30 pm.  Tickets are $8.00, effect on your psyche – priceless.
