Barnes & Noble Top Sellers

Stylish and Dirty horror flick, made me jump several times as well as made me want to have a shower from the infected film design. Based on a true haunting made me stop and wonder if there are real ghosts. I think I'll sleep with the light on!!!

DEATH TUNNEL (Sony Pictures)

When an initiation ceremony goes awry and five college girls become stranded in a haunted sanatorium with a wicked past, they struggle to uncover the dark secrets that lie within and make it out alive in filmmaker Philip Adrian Booth's dark tale of supernatural terror. Deep within the darkened halls of a massive Kentucky sanatorium built in 1910, 63,000 lives were lost to the mysterious "White Plague." Now, decades after the historic tragedy, the abandoned sanatorium remains haunted by five lost souls whose spirits can't find rest in the natural world. As the terrified girls fall one by one to the vengeful specters, the discovery of a massive, 500-foot underground tunnel used to dispose of the bodies may provide the only escape from a world where the cold hand of death maintains a frightful grip on the pulse of the living. -All Movie Guide: Jason Buchanan:

Based on true story that uses facts, March 9, 2006
I have been waiting for this movie to come out for about 2 years now. I am an amature ghost hunter and have done research on the waverly hills sanitorium that the movie is based on. Most of the "ghost stories" mentioned in the movie are actually part of the history of the building. Some parts of the plot were a little weak, but the direction and editing were outstanding. I highly recommend it.

Michael A. Bohatch (Colorado Springs, CO United States)
The votes are in!......"Recently rented the new movie "Death tunnel". It presents an extremely impressive visual style combined with top notch kinetic editing work. I'll admit, it made me jump more than once and without any slowdowns. So far my favorite release this year. I'm sure we'll hear more from this team, and I'll be first in line. My only criticism is the DVd cover art doesnt do the movie justice. A passing consumer would most likely pass this great release up if relying on shelf shopping. A much better cover image would have been a rendering of the gasmask demon in the film. So great job to the team, but I would fire the marketing team. Fans of great visual horrific kinetics should buy this release!

Ross Davis "ensomniac" (Little Rock, AR)
I had to see this movie as soon as I saw the cover. Any cover where there is a chick wearing a bra and a gasmask is a surefire way to get my attention. The movie itself is a little immature for my horror movie tastes, but it beats the pants off of the last "horror" movie I rented which I picked because of the box cover, "Cry-Wolf (Unrated)". That movie was unrated, but not because of its content. This movie is rated R and actually delivers the elements that a hokey horror movie should have: scantily clad chicks with occasional nudity, pervasive bad language, and intense scenes of bloody violence and gore. One very good thing about this movie is the gore scenes and some of the haunting images, which are both top-notch.e concept of the movie is good and all of the talent of the filmmakers is there.

BlueFlames "Blue" (Kentucky, USA)
If you like Horror Movies, then at least give it a chance! I've been to the Sanatorium at Halloween Time it's very scary, it's even scary in the day time from it being so old and run down. When I heard the making of this movie, I just couldn't wait for it too come out, 2 years later it's finally out...... my word what a long WAIT!!!!!!!!! I'm excited to see it, based on a true story. I would recommend this Movie to anyone! I would recommend you visit the place at Halloween!

this movie was a suprisingly good indie it had its twist but it all make sence at the end the acting was good along with the rest good movie!

Going now to its 25th edition, Fantasporto brought to Portugal for the first time the films of such names as David Cronenberg, André Tarkovsky, Brian de Palma, John Carpenter, Alain Resnais, David Lynch, Pedro Almodovar, Andrzej Zulawski, Ridley Scott, Luc Besson, Peter Greenaway, Neil Jordan, Jean-Jacques Beneix, Joel and Ethan Cohen, Sam Raimi, Brian Yuzna, Peter Jackson, Hal Hartley, Anthony Minghella, Quentin Tarantino, Roberto Rodriguez, Danny Boyle, Paul Anderson, David Fincher, James Mangold, the Wachowski Brothers, Scott Hicks, Scott Reynolds and the Dutch director and Oscar winner Mike Van Diem, among many others.
Situated in the west corner of Europe, the World Heritage City of Porto hosts a one of a kind film festival. Founded 24 years ago by a group of film fans and critics, Fantasporto, as it is known, started as a haven for sci-fi and fantasy films , a then not too well seen genre. After a huge sucesss in the first two years, the festival has broaden its horizons with thrillers and seven years later with a New Directors competition. Although fantasy is still its trade mark, especially for the Portuguese press, it recognized as the biggest in Portugal and one of the most important in Europe.

Giving space to big screen productions, to autheur films and to experimental projects from all over the world, Fantasporto has created enthusiastic audiences, ranging from cinephiles to more popular spectators, with an annual average of 110,000 film goers. In its 24th edition in February the festival reached 104,000 people and 5,000 media references (both national and international) with a record of 187 hours of TV time. Present in Oporto were circa 100 members of the foreign press and about 250 Portuguese journalists and media representatives.
In spite of being organized by a private entity, the event is mostly State funded, with the Ministry of Culture leading and the President of the Republic as head of the Honour Committee, and with private sponsors backing strongly, responding to the festival’s crowd appeal
The guests are mostly representative of the films in competition (126 this year), having increased in number over the years due mostly to word of mouth. They are lodged in 5 star hotels and enjoy a full programme of tours in a city that is the European Capital of Culture this year.
The films arrive from both from major companies such as Warner, Columbia, UIP or Fox, producers as Miramax, New Line or Summit and from top companies all over the world. The festival is fertile ground for the discovery of new cinematographies, for "sneak previews" or for launching "difficult" films like "Bullworth" or "Scream 3" (European premières). Distributors also frequently test the possible theatrical impact of their new films in Fantasporto as it was the case with "South Park" (Warner), Heaven" and "Dogma ( both Miramax) or "Bats" (Columbia). The Fantas awards are usually used in the promotion in the national market.
The success of Fantasporto is also measurable by the increasing number of offers coming directly from the producers, with United Artists and Columbia sending directly their films in the latest edition which opened with "Audition" , and closed with Nick Hurran "Plots With a View" and Sonderberg´s "Solaris".
Not really an organised market, still deals are made, or new productions (mostly European) are agreed upon in the festival restaurants or in the Rivoli Theatre lobbies, the heart of Fantasporto, a beautiful renewed cinema of the 40’s, right in the commercial centre of the city, with the Atlantic Ocean, the River Douro and the port wine cellars close by.
The organizers, the Cooperativa Cinema Novo, has been writing, programming and promoting films as well as publishing books since 1978. In recent years they have also become involved in the acquisition of theatrical and video rights for Portugal. The process started with Peter Jackson’s "Braindead", Fantasporto Best Film Award in 83, and went on with Jane Campion’s"An Angel at My Table", Tobe Hooper"Texas Chainsaw Massacre" or most recently Veit Helmer’s "Tuvalu" among others.
The Cinema Novo Collection is going on 100 titles, the great majority already with theatrical release, exploiting a niche which has remained untouched by national distributors, and thus increasing the diversity in Portuguese screens as the multiplex AMC Cinemas have understood and given support.
Oporto is European Capital of Culture and Fantasporto festival was the opening event. Also in a near future is the creation by Cinema Novo of a 4 screen multiplex which will be complemented with the rental of other cinemas in the Lisbon area, providing more space for the release of their films.

It is always pleasant to remember the birth and the development of the
Oporto International Film Festival, since its launching in 1981, still as a non-competitive event, till adulthood in the 1993 edition.
Considered by the professional international magazine "Variety"as one of the 60 top film festivals of the world, and the best as far as the fantasy genre is considered, Fantasporto has become the most talked about film and culture event in Portugal.
Since the very beginning, Fantasporto had as goal the creation of a dynamic forum of all arts, with a strong tendency to show the best of fantasy films and the diversity of the film world.
The Festival has also tried to bring to its programme a group of sidebars as art exhibitions,theatre plays, puppet presentations, lectures, seminars, poster competitions, comics and amateur film-making, as well as the publishing of several film related material.
It was this combination of several art forms which gave Fantasporto the appeal it still has today, at the top of all film festivities in Portugal, gathering an enthusiastic crowd and the support of official and governmental authorities, local entities and private companies.
Through these 24 years we have presented in competition over 5.000 films (new feature length and shorts), never released theatrically in Portugal.
Enlarging the number of film addicts, the festival prepares each year special programmes for children , handicapped citizens and schools.
We brought to Portugal, in an obvious promotion of national tourism an important group of film-makers, producers, actors, screenplay writers, film critics and journalists.
Dany Boyle,Brian Yuzna, Elias Mehrige, Julian Temple,Bill Plympton, Júlio Bressane, Richard Elfman, David Lynch, Ben Kinskey, Mariano Baino, Robert Golden, Ray Brady, Luc Besson, Karel Zeman, Andrzej Zulawski, Francis Leroi, Wolf Gremm, Carl Schenkel, René Laloux, Mansur Madavi, Monique Enckell, Oldrich Lipsky, Harry Kumel, Vicente Aranda, Juan Luis Bunuel, Roy Ward Baker, Ivan Cardoso, Piotr Szulkin, Mike Hodges, Jesus Garay, Alex Cox, Carlos Saura, Rauol Servais, André Delvaux, Pim by la Parra, George Sluizer, Imanol Uribe, Jean Claude Carrière, Serguei Paradjanov, Danny Elfman, not forgetting the presence of the Portuguese film-makers such as António Macedo, Victor Silva, Ana Luisa Guimarães, Cristina Hauser ou Margarida Gil, Fernando Vendrell, Fernando Lopes, Joaquim Leitão, Tino Navarro, Paulo Branco, Manuel Costa e Silva, in atotal of 2,400 guests who have honoured us with their presence.
The promotion of European and Portuguese films was permanent as a counterpoint to the north- american film industry.
Recently the Teatro Municipal Rivoli has become the centre of the Festival.
We have created and consolidated to our guests the trade mark of sympathy and warm welcoming, together with an accurate and competent organization which makes the difference between us and some other festivals.
The final results for these twenty four years is clear to all and proved by the big press dossiers that we have been collecting through the years. We became a big ( in Portugal ) Film Festival, with a significant projection on the production companies and international organisms, without loosing the charactheritics of the informal but priveliged treatement through the guests, the nacional and international media and through a large amount of audience who has been always with us, helping us growing.
We are proud of having contributed, in only twenty one years, to the international projection of the town, the region and the country promoting the cinema and above all, returning to the spectators the will and joy of watching movies.

INTERVIEW: Star Steffany Huckaby

Death Tunnel: Star Steffany Huckaby
By: Elaine Lamkin

Steffany Huckaby is among a new group of actors exploring the horror genre. Friends with fellow horror newcomers like Natalie Avatal and Rocky Marquette (both in “Shallow Ground”), Steffany recently completed “Death Tunnel”, a “Session 9”-like horror film that is starting to generate some buzz. Southern born and bred, it was the chance meeting, due to both having Kentucky license plates in LA, with writer-producer Shane Taylor which led to her being cast in the film. And apparently it was quite an experience she had at Waverly Hills Sanitarium. One she hopes she will never have to repeat…

BD: Hi Steffany! Thanks for taking time to talk to Bloody-Disgusting about your new horror film, “Death Tunnel”. First though, would you mind giving us some background information on you – The Steffany Huckaby Story? Where are you from? Where did you get your education? Have you always wanted to be an actress?

SH: Why thanks Bloody Disgusting. I’m so happy that I’m talking with you. Actually, I’m from Kentucky and Alabama, as well. I studied music and I’ve been doing theater since I was five. And yes, I have always wanted to be an actress.

BD: From the information on the IMDb, you are a relatively new face to filmgoers, your first film being “Career Suicide” in 2004 where you play The New Girl. How did you get into film in the first place? Did you go the typical waiting tables route or have something more interesting to do while waiting for “the” role?

SH: No, I have never waited tables, but I have played Cinderella and Belle from Beauty and the Beast for little kids’ birthday parties. I got into film because I love it, and every role I’ve gotten, I auditioned for.

BD: In 2004, you also had two roles in “horror” movies – “Scarecrows Gone Wild” and “Starkweather”. Now the Starkweather story is based on a true story -–what was your role in the film and did you do any research about the real Charles Starkweather/Caril Ann Fugate case?

SH: I played Carole King, the girl whose death resulted in their arrest. I’m a big fan of the Terrence Malick film, “Badlands,” which starred Martin Sheen and Sissy Spacek, so I knew a little about the serial killings before getting the role. Once I got the role, I came across actual photos of the real Charlie Starkweather and Caril Ann. Also Bruce Springsteen’s album “Nebraska” is in part about Starkweather.

BD: You appeared with Rocky Marquette in 2005’s “Guy in Row Five”. That was just after Rocky appeared in the horrifying indie movie “Shallow Ground” where he spends the entire film naked and covered in blood. Did the two of you discuss “Shallow Ground” or what it was like acting in a horror movie?

SH: I remember talking with Rocky about agents and managers and books on the set of “Guy In Row Five,” but not about horror films; however, I know Natalie Avatal, who starred in “Shallow Ground” too, and we spoke about what fun it is shooting a horror film. When you’re on set, it’s intense, but you don’t carry it with you offset, not like on a drama.

BD: 2005 has been a busy year for you as you also appeared in “The Pleasure Drivers” with a very eclectic cast including Lauren Holly, Angus Macfadyen, Lacey Chabert, Billy Zane and Meatloaf. What do you remember from that film experience with such a cast?

SH: Loads of fun in the desert! An eclectic array of people, indeed! All, while I was playing the leader of a religious cult with leukemia who gets kidnapped, shot and run over, but manages to survive. The movie’s a black comedy, so that description of my character is really funny to me. Everybody just had fun.

BD: How did you come to be involved in “Death Tunnel”?

SH: I met Shane Taylor, the producer, one day because we both had Kentucky license plates on our cars in Los Angeles – so that led to an audition.

BD: What about the script attracted you to the role of Heather?

SH: “Heather” showed strength yet was losing her mind at the same time. I thought that would make for a challenge as an actor.

BD: BD: And had you ever even heard about Waverly Hills Sanitarium at that time?

SH: I grew up near Louisville, so Waverly Hills was what a haunted house meant to me as a child. I had never seen it; we just didn’t go that way very often. But I remember one time, we did drive by it, and I hid my face from it as my older brother taunted me with the stories there, trying to scare me more. If only I knew then.

BD: I live in Louisville and have been to Waverly Hills a few times, on tours at Halloween. What was you reaction when you first saw this enormous, decaying, supposedly haunted building and realized you would be spending a LOT of time in it?

SH: I was eager at first. I saw the place as a challenge; I couldn’t wait to conquer it. But then the building started to wear on me. A group of us went on a nighttime adventure to explore and challenge the hospital. We had flashlights and an infrared camera, but it was a real bad experience, and that’s when everything changed for me in regards to the hospital.

BD: Were you given any time to read up on Waverly Hills before filming began? I have heard about The Hanged Nurse on the 5th floor but was not aware of the other ghosts that are in the film.

SH: The filmmakers had done a lot of their own research and handed it off to the cast and crew. For my personal research, I relied heavily on the Internet and one of my friends had a great aunt who passed away in the hospital and I got to talk to her family about that.

BD: Did you personally have any “weird” experiences in the building?

SH: Yes. I now believe in ghosts.

BD: Have you seen the film “Session 9” which is similar to “Death Tunnel” only the sheer size of The Danvers State Mental Institution, where the movie was filmed, is about 10 times the size of Waverly? But they were both designed in that “bat-wing” design. If you haven’t seen “Session 9”, that is a must-see!

SH: Yes, I’ve seen “Session 9,” but I think Waverly Hills is more dilapidated and I think there is more of a history of things happening there, and you feel that when you go there.

BD: Once filming started, what was it like being inside Waverly Hills? You obviously had electricity from generators as the building has no electricity but it is still a “dark” place. And how much of the building were you actually able to use? I asked Shane Taylor about the scene where Richie is climbing the fire escape on the side of the building, trying to get to you girls – THAT is a very dangerous area as a former owner tried to dig under the foundation there to get the building to collapse.

SH: It was cold and dark even on hot, sunny days. The walls were peeling. The set dressing was totally authentic. There was one wing completely chained off due to abnormal activity.

BD: Did the entire cast and crew really stay the entire shoot ON the Waverly site? That’s a rumor I’ve been hearing ever since the local press started reporting on the film (I believe you started filming in the summer of 2004?).

SH: I was on set so much for shooting, but I did have a hotel room.

BD: What was your favorite scare in the film – the ghosts were all pretty horrific.

SH: There’s a scene where I find the Devon character in the stairwell. It’s toward the end of the film so things are getting intense. It was also toward the end of shooting, so there was also some personal emotion put into the shooting of it.

BD: Did you get to explore much of the real “Death Tunnel”? It used to be blocked about halfway down the hill but the filmmakers may have cleaned that up.

SH: I did explore the real Death Tunnel, we shot the final scene there; and I never want to see it again.

BD: How did you and the other four actresses who played the “initiates” get along?

SH: I’m sure some people would expect and even hope for some stories of a constant catfight, but that just didn’t happen. The five of us got along great. We hung out a lot, while at work and back at the hotel, and we still keep in touch from time to time. It’s like we’re the Desperate Housewives.

BD: And those “hoods” that were put on you – they reminded me somewhat of the weird device one of the characters in “Saw” had to wear. How comfortable were those to wear, along with nothing else but your lingerie? It had to be chilly in Waverly.

SH: We only had the hoods on for a couple of scenes. That was good because they were a bit funky. The tough part was getting them on. Annie Burgstede and I had to have them plopped on our heads on camera. As far as my lingerie goes, I was the lucky one who got a nice, heavy fabric that reached to my knees. It was warmer than anyone else’s, which was good for me because, like I had mentioned, Waverly has this constant chill inside of it, not to mention all of the cold spots.

BD: What kind of reception have you had from fans about “Death Tunnel” so far (even though it hasn’t officially been released)?

SH: People seem really excited to see the movie. It has a huge buzz about it back in Louisville and it’s being talked about here in Los Angeles.

BD: Do you have some new projects you’re working on or soon will be? What can you tell us about them?

SH: I just attended the premiere for “Guy In Row Five” and I am looking forward to the releases for “Pleasure Drivers” and “Disconnect.”

BD: Are you a fan of horror movies and if so, what are some of your favorites?

SH: Yes I am a fan of horror movies. My favorite is “Night of the Living Dead,” and I loved “28 Days Later.”

BD: Do you read any horror fiction? What are some of your favorite titles?

SH: Yes, Stephen King. Classic “It,” “Pet Semetary,” and “Christine,” to name a few. But – “American Psycho” is the most frightening book I have ever read.

BD: Is there anything you would like to add that I haven’t asked about you or “Death Tunnel”?

SH: Working on “Death Tunnel” was a life changing experience, and I’m glad for it, but I would probably never go through it again.

BD: What is one thing about Steffany Huckaby that no one knows but you think they should?

SH: I hate beets. They remind me of bloody messes.

The Girls of Death Tunnel

The Girls of Death Tunnel
Posted By : deadmanwalkin, Monday Feb,06, Via: Source
Filed Under : Death Tunnel, General Horror, Horror Trailers, Thriller,

Devon, Elizabeth, Ashley, Tori and Heather. Each of them a beauty in their own right.. but together they will bring nothing but DEATH. Philip Adrian Booth's upcoming horror film - DEATH TUNNEL is scheduled to be released onto DVD on February 28, 2006, but if you click on the image below you won't have to wait till then to at least meet the "Girls of Death Tunnel." It's a cool little behinds the scene clip and one in which the deadman will watch.. over and over again.

"An upscale college initiation party strands five girls in the "Scariest Place in the World". Within the five floors of an abandoned hospital built in 1910, haunted by five ghosts of it's tortured past. As the girls, one by one become victims of it's tragic history, they soon uncover a shocking link they all may have to it's past. A 500 foot underground body chute, built to remove the dead bodies of it's patients.

With each door opens up a new terror, and each corridor leads to unimaginable horror, the only way out is through the Death Tunnel."
