Me and CF Benner settling our big differences with delicious, thirst-quenching cool cans of sponsor Wellington Brewery's FROSTY BEER at FanExpo 2014.

CF and I rarely agree, but when we do, we both affirm that Black Fawn Distribution is doing a bang-up job of getting Tricia Lee Kalpakis' award-wining horror film Silent Retreat out across Canada on DVD.

So step right up, grab a beer (Wellington!) and nab your own blood-curdling copy of SILENT RETREAT at Black Fawn Distribution.  --  'nuf said.

SILENT RETREAT
'Best Canadian Feature Film' 
-- (Toronto After Dark Film Festival 2013)

'Janey is sent to a silent meditation retreat, in the woods, for rehabilitation, only to realize that the men who run it are brainwashing women, and if she breaks the rules, she'll discover what lurks beyond the trees.'

MOURNING HAS BROKEN (Dark Comedy) is now on iTunes and VOD WORLDWIDE !

I play the lead in MOURNING HAS BROKEN now for rent or sale WORLDWIDE on iTunes, VHX and VIMEO ON DEMAND ! See Trailer below or on any of those sites.

All movies begin with a burning idea. What gets them made is faith and endless work and inspiration. MHB had that and the tipping point: a critical financial investment in the Butlers' idea and team by Punkfilms' fearless leader Ingrid Veninger: Water the seeds and mighty trees may grow.

From the Butlers:

"Made with $1000, 100 buckets of sweat, 50 drops of tears, 10 pints of blood, and 1 Robert Nolan. Mourning Has Broken is NOW AVAILABLE!!! Big thanks to the inspiration Ingrid Veninger, our man Avi Federgreen, the lens master Michael Davidson and so many more who worked with us and supported us along the way!!! Spread the word, mourning has broke!!!" - Jason Butler, Brett M. Butler.

LAVENDER FIELDS - A lovely film I'm in that uses ASL sign language



LAVENDER FIELDS - Notes from the Director Alfredo Salvatore Arcilesi on a lovely film that uses ASL sign language. Are we dreaming through life or is life dreaming through us? 
"... the almost entirely silent film, LAVENDER FIELDS, starring the impeccably talented and charismatic Kelly-Marie Murtha and engrossing Robert Nolan, and coached by American Sign Language (ASL) teacher/mentor/actress Elizabeth Morris, explored life and loss, love and depression, all through sound and silence.

Once sharing the distinction of never having screened for a festival audience with the award-winning SCENT OF ROSEMARY, LAVENDER FIELDS remains the only title in the complete Arcilesi Films catalogue to have yet to grace the silver screen.


Until that day arrives, I share with you... LAVENDER FIELDS..."

"FAMILIAR is a legitimate genre masterpiece" - Review of Fatal Pictures' horror movie.


"Every bit as brilliant as he was in Worm, Nolan once again brings a frustrated, pathetic but very dangerous character to life. Like Worm, the bulk of the lines come from Dodd’s internal monologue, delivered with finesse by Nolan....

...Completely shocking body horror and some brilliant visual effects occur later on as the short builds to a truly twisted and unforgettable climax. This is an excellent and well-crafted tale. Credit must also go to Powell for his assured direction. I thought his work in Worm was great, I’m prepared to say I thought it was even better in Familiar. That is strong praise indeed."

Great new review of WORM just in! - "...another gem in the ranks of genre shorts."

WORM

"Wow. I'd heard some great things about Worm but I was still shocked by just how amazing it was. Anchored by a brilliant performance by Robert Nolan (one that assured I will eagerly look forward to more of his work) and fantastically shot and crafted by writer/director Richard Powell, Worm is a must-see. As much a fascinating character-drama as a horror story, this is yet another gem in the ranks of genre shorts." 
Watch for HEIR - The Final Short From Fatal Pictures now in post-production!

Great new review of MOURNING HAS BROKEN by Unsung Films


"Mourning Has Broken" starts to settle as it reaches its end. It becomes more reflective, gentler, harder. It slowly unwinds until we reach the starting point again. And by the end, it is exceedingly difficult to remain unmoved by the profound and devastating plight of a broken man at the quiet breaking point of despair." 

MOURNING HAS BROKEN will be released on Feb. 3, 2015 
by Indiecan Entertainment Inc. in 47 countries on VOD & iTunes.

Just out! A great new review of Fatal Pictures horror film WORM by Legless Corpse

 WORM - A fine new review:

"I honestly didn’t know what to expect when I first saw this little film, but was very happy that I had the opportunity when it was over. I’ve watched it many times since then, and find it just as chilling on subsequent viewings...

This little twenty-minute flick did a lot to push me out of my comfort zone; by taking something all of us can relate to, a figure that in a perfect world should be a bastion of trust and inspiration, and turning it into the blackest of fears, writer/director Richard Powell crafted a tale that was both unsettling and captivating. His use of the camera, close in on Dodd when we’re most uncomfortable with what we’re hearing, almost creates the illusion that we’re his conscience on his shoulder; the voice he can’t hear."
