Before Arachnophobia and Eight Legged Freaks…there was Kingdom of the Spiders.

While sophisticated digital effects have made it possible for swarms of beetles, bees and other insects to rampage across movie screens throughout the last decade, back in the Seventies filmmakers had no such tool. If you wanted to have scores of bugs invade the set, many of them had to be real or it looked hokey. Films about nature seeking revenge were all the rage thirty years ago, and the 1977 cult film Kingdom of the Spiders starring William Shatner pulled no punches – those were live tarantulas crawling all over the set…and the cast!

Seven CD Review

The band Seven, named after the Seven Deadly or Cardinal sins Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Sloth Wrath Envy and Pride was formed six years ago. After a few changes in the lineup they became the musical force you hear on their self titled CD.
The CD takes you through tight, adrenaline-fueled tunes. Seven has the components to make good music with good guitar riffs with drummer Eric “Gluttony” Souza hammering the music home!
Rob “Envy” Hunter has the vocal chords to carry off the songs the way metal should be sung. He can quickly change from screams to growls to melodic signing while maintain the fast pace of the songs.
Seven brings strong song writing and catchy melodies to their CD. For me the stand out is “I Hate Myself” it is crisp, clean with a tight rhythm section that demands you move to the music.
This CD moves smoothly through the tunes with a mix of metal and a touch of techno on the side. Check out their music on MySpace.

The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day is the much-anticipated sequel to the indie cult classic, The Boondock Saints. The film is the continuation of writer/director Troy Duffy’s tough, stylized cutting edge saga of the MacManus brothers (Norman Reedus, Sean Patrick Flanery). The two have been in deep hiding with their father, Il Duce (Billy Connolly), in the quiet valleys of Ireland, far removed from their former vigilante lives. When word comes that a beloved priest has been killed by sinister forces from deep within the mob, the brothers return to Boston to mount a violent and bloody crusade to bring justice to those responsible. With a new partner in crime (Clifton Collins Jr., Star Trek) and a sexy FBI operative (Julie Benz, TV’s “Dexter”) hot on their trail…the Saints are back!

October 21, 2009 – The acclaimed film “THE SECRET IN THEIR EYES” – A FILM BY JUAN JOSE CAMPANELLA is set to make its U.S. premiere this coming November at the AFI FEST 2009 in Los Angeles on November 4, 2009 at 4PM at the Mann Chinese Cinemas.   
The film recently became the number one box office hit of the year by surpassing over 2 million admissions since its release in September beating out even many of the blockbuster films.
In addition, “THE SECRET IN THEIR EYES” was chosen by the Argentina Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (Academia de Cine de la Argentina) to represent Argentina in the Best Foreign Language Motion Picture category for the upcoming Oscar® race.  This murder mystery thriller starring Ricardo Darrin received critical acclaim and audience ovations at last month’s Toronto International Film Festival and the San Sebastian Film Festival.  While in Argentina, viewers continued to discuss the film outside the cinema in cafes, restaurants and in the media.
Director Campanella was previously nominated for an Oscar® in 2001 for his film “Son of the Bride.”  He works in both Argentina and the United States. In the US, he continues to be a favorite director amongst TV shows including “House, MD,”  “Law and Order: SVU,” and “30 Rock.”
