Read more about this flick here:

BUT the most important things to know about it are the following:

 

- THOMAS JANE will star in it (which is reason enough to see it)

 

- Phil Joanou will direct it. In case you've forgotten who that is...He directed something else we love -- #DirtyLaundry (oh, yeah)

 

- The plan is to start shooting this film in April, so..........we know what that sadly must mean. :(

Alright another horror!!!

I'm so excited that he has soooo many coming out our way but it's crazy that since P.S.C none have been released yet! But once they start this year we are going to have taste of TJ in soooo many different roles here and there throughout the next two years!!!

 

Sadly I thought the same thing too Rosela...looks like AMDFASH will be delayed yet again :(

TJ never disappoints in the horror department.

Too many TJ movies to choose from….Now, that’s a problem I can deal with. ;)

 

Pretty cool TJ and Joanou are on board, hopefully they get The Perl involved.

 

THAT would be phenomenal! Of course, I also think Tom & Ron should do a buddy cop flick just because. B)

MANY THANKS TO VIENDAMMAGE!!!

 

Viendammage gave me a couple passes so Heffie, my friend from work, and I could go up to the screening. I'm fortunate that Heffie could go and drive, sine I through a rod bearing in my car. We went straight from work since it's a bit of a drive to LA from San Diego. We left early enough that we were able to meet Viendammage, his girl Tammy, and her mother Clorissa at a nearby bar for food and drinks. Thanks again to viendammage for buying drinks! We had a great time sharing stories while we were hanging out.

 

When we got there, Viendammage introduced me to his friend Vladimir Kulich, who you may know from 13th Warrior, Ironclad, Vikings, and Skyrim. He's a great guy and I enjoyed talking to him. After a bit I decided I would take a chance to see if I could find Phil Joanou, the director of The Veil, and his wife Breann Nelson, who is a retired but bonafied supermodel.

 

I met them both before at San Diego Comicon for the world premier of Dirty laundry, since Phil was the director. I found Phil first, but I wasn't certain it was him, since it was about 4 years ago that I met them. So I looked for Breann and saw that she was near and speaking to another group of people. I waited for a pause in their conversation and just said her name. She turned and looked at me and said "OMG" and came over and gave me a hug. perplexed, I asked if she remembered me and said, "of course, you saved us!" She was referring to when they were on the way to the show they were talking to Thomas, telling him they were stuck in traffic, so Thomas handed me the phone and asked me to help them navigate around the traffic. Being Con savvy and a San Diego native I was able to give them directions that got them out of traffic and right where they needed to be.

 

Breann and I continued to talk for a bit and she blew me away with how incredibly good her memory is. She told me all about how my high school aged daughter was there and was responsible for handling another person at there for the screening, which was all true and the person she was handling was actually Ron Perlman. She then introduced me to Phil, who remembered me right off too. Phil and I had some fun at the Dirty Laundry screening since he had brought the video in HD, but didn't have an HD out on his laptop, so we struggled trying to fond someone with a DVI out on their laptop and getting cables to hook it up to the projection system. eventually we got it all done, then we found out the projector was VGA and we had just wasted our time. So we just laughed and hoped for the best that the image quality would be good enough for the screening, which it was.

 

After a short bit Thomas showed up and we said hello, but it was time for the screening. So I asked him if we could catch up after the show. I found Viendammage and Heffie and I went go so with him and his crew. A short bit later Vlad sat down with us too. In fact he sat next to me, which left me a bit concerned, since he is a big guy and I am too. Fortunately unlike me his is longer than he is wide, so it worked out.

 

The film is definitely an artists film. It is dark in tone, mood, and lighting. it is not a film for everyone as it is a true horror, that has substantial no feel good moments in it. It goes dark and continues to go darker through the story. The casting is exceptional, especially since it was shot in old school, John Ford wide screen, so everyone had to be on point with their focus and expressions. It was quite a challenge for the cinematographer to make all these scenes work and he did an exceptional job. You might say I am biased, when I say that Thomas was the actor that really impressed, but it doesn't matter, since it's true. He plays a very Jim Jones cult leader type that is off into some meta spiritual scheme that leads into the horrific paranormal events.

 

The screening was for the cast and crew hosted at the Hollywood Egyptian and it was followed by a Q&A with Phil Joanou. Phil spoke a lot about the hard work that everyone put into the film, especially with the short shooting schedule and limited budget. He spoke about how it was the hardest film he had ever made and that it never would have been successful without the work of everyone involved, including the extras, who he said really weren't extras as much as they were actors, since a lot was asked and expected from them. He spent a lot of time making certain that everyone knew how much he appreciated them as he thanked them all. Phil took several questions from the audience and gave candid responses to all of them. I have to say that Phil is an incredibly energetic and bright person, that shows in everything he does, from film making, speaking in public, and setting up video. he even learned how to make ghosts in Adobe After Effects by watching some kid in Great Britain on YouTube, that he used for the movie.

 

After the film we walked out with Viendammage and Vlad. Viendammage suggested that Vlad might be interested in joining the RAW booth for Long Beach Comic Expo coming up on 20-21 Feb, so I asked him if he was interested and he said he was. We'll need to work on the details, but I hope we can make it happen. We said goodbye the them, and we then ran into a couple other people we know, burgeoning film-maker and friend of Bradstreet, Brian McQuery, and his friend Cinematographer, Ricardo Gale. We said hello, but then Brian said that Thomas was looking for me, so I took off to go find him.

 

I caught up with Thomas, walked out of the theater, and met Heffie along the way. Thomas and I had a great time just catching up on life and our kids. He even told me that his daughter wants my daughter to get her a job at Disneyland, since that's where my daughter is working while she goes to school. Apparently Thomas's daughter is already taller than her mom, so I am going to be in for a surprise next time I see her.

 

I have to say that Thomas is a very supportive friend. We spent a fair amount of time talking about challenges I have been dealing with and I can't express enough how much I appreciated it. I've picked up a new hobby that is involved in performing arts that is very different than anything I have ever done before, so I am way out of my box and comfort zone, but after a year and a half it seems like I may be seen in front of local audiences in minor roles. I don't want to get into what I am up to yet, at least not until I know it's going somewhere. I'm still shocked that something I picked up as a casual way of spending time that is no longer being used to play video games has grown so fast. The great part about talking to Thomas about it though, was he wanted to make certain that I was sincere about it and working at it all the time. And I do I practice every day.

 

We ended the evening walking with Thomas to his car, then driving back to Heffie's place. I spent the night there, since he actually lives 75 miles from our work and about 50 miles from my place. With the adventure over, Heffie and I woke up early in the morning to go back to the daily grind.

 

Good times!!!

Mike

Finally saw this a few nights ago and it a was great little horror flick. It was a good role for TJ. Unfortunately there hasn't been anything I have really liked since his roles in I Melt With You & Dirty Laundry. Not only was he great in it but l liked the fact that it hasn't been done before -- refreshing. I don't think there is anything else out there...that I have seen that is similar in anyway. Phil directed it so I thought for sure it's got have some substance.

 

I highly recommend it. Totally worth a watch.

Kudos to Phill and TJ! ??

Meant to post my quick write up of the evening but it got away from me. Was awesome hanging with Mike and his friend Heffie just talking movies, cons and actors. Randomly, the assistant AD of The Goonies was sitting by us so Heffie and I both chatted with him a little bit about the production of a classic.

 

The lobby was packed with peeps and I saw The Jane for a moment looking slim and stylish. Funny Mike mentioned sitting next to Vlad but he was right, the big Slovakian just stretched out versus expanding. Movie was cool and Joanou was great during Q&A, just wish we would have heard from others attending, especially Mr. Jane of course. Was a fun night! Excited to see Mike and hopefully some of you in Long Beach next week!

I just watched it on Netflix. Tom, once again is the best part. The direction was good, but the story was a little lacking. Honestly, the first 40 minutes with the documentary crew could have been done better or cut. It's just for set-up. The real meat for me was the interaction between Tom and the little girl. The scene where she's going to eat the sugar to be with him, just amazing. I feel the film ended where it really should have taken off. Still, its well done. Word is there was a script overhaul and a time crunch to shoot, but production value is there. Tom's amazing performance is there. The bad reviews miss the mark. I get its not the standard horror film, but that's why I liked it overall.

thanks people. i loved that character... and that's all i gotta say about that

it was great to see Mike and company.

was it just me, or did the DCP make the film look like it was shot on a porn camera?

i mean, that weird soap opera look. i hate that. i took harlow to see pride, p-word & zombies and half way through i realized it had that same 'video' look! it was terrifying. the video, not the movie. the look. the freaking videolook. its like fingernails on a chalkboard for the eyeballs.

 

i understand that Blumhouse is interested in taking Jim Jacobs and doing something like a miniseries about him and his merry band of insanity. could be fun

Enjoyed the film quite a bit more than I expected to. The idea behind the "cult" and what Jim Jacobs was trying to accomplish was presented in an intelligent way, and not played for cheap scares. I prefer that kind of horror to sharp music cues and such.

 

For a film made for 4mil, I thought it looked just as good as the more expensive PG-13 fare that has been milled out for a lot more money. There was some lens distortion in a few shots that stood out to me, but otherwise I didn't find the look of the film off-putting.

 

I'd love to see Phil make more movies. I really dig his work.

I would not mind seeing more of that. The best parts of the film took place with the cult, and with Jacobs. Without a doubt.

Ok so I just saw the veil, wow super creepy, with a very dark atmospheric tone, great directing style! I wonder where the inspiration for the character came from? TJ played the character well, creepy, dark, yet charismatic.. perfection!
