I’m doing something a bit different today and hosting a DVD giveaway for The Honeymoon Phase, which is a sci-fi thriller about a newlywed couple who are offered $50,000 to stay in a house together for 30 days. Obviously, it goes terribly wrong, as the film blends science fiction, thriller, and a bit of horror. It’s directed by Phillip G. Carroll Jr. in his directorial debut, and stars Chloe Carroll, Jim Schubin, and François Chau. The special features on the DVD include bloopers, deleted scenes, a making of and featurettes, too.
For a different kind-of article, I was able to take part in an animation workshop for the film WOLFWALKERS. I've included some coverage of the event in the form of quotes and interesting tidbits, as well as my experience trying to follow along in the tutorial and how my own drawings turned out (like the one seen in the featured image).
Ryan Murphy, showrunner of American Horror Story, revisits some of his Glee roots by directing The Prom, a movie adaptation of the Broadway musical of the same name. The story features a troupe of self-obsessed theater stars wanting to find a cause to make themselves feel better.

In Chick Fight, Malin Akerman's Anna discovers her late mother's fight club when Anna is at rock bottom. She trains and with misguided confidence challenges the film's villain, Olivia (Bella Thorne) to a fight. This starts one of the most boring underdog stories I've ever seen, with flat acting and a lot, a LOT of slow-motion. Read more to learn why you should skip it.
Here's a new episode of my podcast where I chat with the team behind the Canadian horror film BRIGHT HILL ROAD (with director Robert Cuffley, writer Susie Moloney and producer Colin Sheldon), a film centering around a character struggling through addiction who stops at the titular boarding house on her way to California.
On this episode of The Filmcraziest Show, I have a returning guest in writer-director and producer Phillip G. Carroll for his film The Honeymoon Phase, as well as actress and producer Chloe Carroll, who plays Eve in the film, as well as actor Jim Schubin who plays Tom in the film. I usually put a spoiler warning before for certain spots of my interviews, but this episode will be a spoiler show so it’d be a great one to listen to after watching The Honeymoon Phase.
