Kejo Productions, the Sacramento Area filmmakers that brought you Sensored (which is now available on Amazon by the way), will be finished with their latest film, Rogue River in June. The movie stars Bill Moseley (The Devil’s Rejects and Grindhouse) and Michael Cudlitz (Southland and Band of Brothers), among others.

We slept on this because that is what we do best, but for an independent filmmaker out of Sacramento to get theatrical distribution is a pretty impressive accomplishment. Congratulations Deon! I can’t think of any others off the top of my head. If you know of any, let me know.
Sacramento filmmaker Deon Taylor is on the verge of a huge breakthrough: a national theatrical release for his horror film, “Chain Letter,” that was filmed here.
The Sacramento Horror Film Festival starts tonight (October 22nd, 2009) at the Colonial Theater (3522 Stockton Blvd. Sacramento, CA 95820) and runs through October 25th. The Common Men (see their Dumbworld produced music video below) is opening the festival along with the Secretions.

“Very few people will enjoy Love Blade. It’s fringe, oftentimes amateur and frequently disturbing,” isn’t exactly a ringing endorsement for a film, but I will be checking it out- my first Jason Rudy film, August 13th at the Crest Theater (it shows at 7 and 930 pm).
I worked with Jason on the set of Anxiety in 2006, where he was first AD, and one of the things I appreciate about Jason (besides his sense of flair– check out an interview with Fangoria’s GoreZone) is that he actually finishes and screens films (speaking of Anxiety, whatever happened to it?).
Wasn’t able to make it out to the Sacramento Horror Film Festival last weekend. I had planned to check out Mr Lobo’s Public Domain Content and Licensing Workshop, but I ended up watching football and drinking beer at Hanger 17 instead. It appears that I really am not dedicated enough to my craft (unless my craft is watching football and drinking beer).
Regardless, I found a review of the festival by freelance writer Juliet Farmer. Maybe it is me, but she didn’t seem too excited about the whole thing, but she does suggest a couple of films to check out. Enjoy.
