VICTOR CROWLEY TAKES MONSTERPALOOZA!

Los Angeles!  On Sunday September 17th, don’t miss the panel presentation for the new HATCHET movie VICTOR CROWLEY at SON OF MONSTERPALOOZA in Burbank, CA!  Writer/Director Adam Green, FX artist Robert Pendergraft, and actors Dave Sheridan, Laura Ortiz, Tiffany Shepis, and Felissa Rose will be showing scenes from the new movie, discussing the film’s elaborate practical effects, and meeting/signing for fans immediately after the presentation.  If you’ve ever seen an ArieScope panel presentation at a convention than you know that we never hold back or tease!  Expect to see some serious shit from VICTOR CROWLEY which critics are already calling the scariest, funniest, and most gore-filled HATCHET film yet.  In fact, maybe wear a raincoat so you don’t get any blood on your favorite black horror T-shirt.  It’s gonna get messy up on that screen.

VICTOR CROWLEY Receives A Standing Ovation In London!

Last night, VICTOR CROWLEY received yet another standing ovation.  Following the film’s European Premiere in London, the audience at FrightFest gave Adam Green and his latest HATCHET film a full standing ovation – which was only the second time in the festival’s 18 year-long history that the audience has ever given a film/filmmaker a standing ovation.

StandingOOne of the most successful screenings in FrightFest history.

The premiere began with Adam Green paying tribute to the late George A. Romero who was not only the one who convinced Green to make a fourth HATCHET film but who was also the only other filmmaker to ever receive a standing ovation from the FrightFest audience.  It was an emotional night that began with Green speaking from the heart about the painful events that lead to him deciding to bring “Victor Crowley” back.  (Read the whole story in his blog here.)

IMG_0642Honoring a master.  If not for George A. Romero this film may have never happened.

What followed was one of the most raucous screenings in FrightFest history.  The packed audience laughed, screamed, cheered, and applauded as VICTOR CROWLEY unfolded on the enormous IMAX screen before them.  We would post the glowing reviews that the film has received so far but as Adam said in his blog announcing the new film… we’re hoping that you won’t read any reviews or risk having any details spoiled for you before seeing the film for yourself.

IMG_0643For once even Adam Green was speechless.  Imagine that.

Though we thought that Tuesday night’s surprise unveiling/premiere in Los Angeles could never be beat with its two standing ovations… somehow the energy from the fans in London blew away even that.  It was a night that those of us behind the scenes of VICTOR CROWLEY will never, ever forget and easily one of the most memorable nights in the decade long history of the HATCHET franchise so far.  It sure has been a hell of a week for all of us at ArieScope!

IMG_2730Adam Green and Kane Hodder took part in a 30 minute long Q&A after the film.

Thank you, London.  Thank you for showing us that the long, hard road to make this film was all worth it.  Stay tuned here as Adam Green’s “VICTOR CROWLEY TOUR” dates and cities are announced over the coming days.  While some of the dates have now been posted, the bulk of them are coming very, very soon.  If you’re a fan of the HATCHET series, trust us… you want to try and see VICTOR CROWLEY on the tour if at all possible.

VICTOR CROWLEY LIVES!

Last night Adam Green unveiled a surprise new HATCHET film to an audience full of fans in Hollywood, CA.  Disguised as a “10th Anniversary” screening, the audience was treated to the first ever screening of VICTOR CROWLEY- the fourth installment in the HATCHET franchise.  Read all about it in Green’s latest blog here.

FREE HATCHET FAN EVENT IN LA!

UPDATED: Due to popular demand the Arclight Hollywood has now moved this event onto an even bigger screen at the theater!  That means more seats to go around for all!  We are kicking off the “HATCHET “10th Anniversary Tour” in style just with a FREE event for fans at the Arclight Hollywood in Los Angeles on Tuesday night 8/22!  It will be an incredible, star-studded night with cast members from all three HATCHET films and other celebrity guests walking the red carpet beforehand, a special screening that will include never before seen footage, a legendary Q&A after the film, and more as we celebrate 10 years of “Victor Crowley” together.

hatchetposterfinalHATCHET officially opened in US theaters on September 7, 2007.

Scheduled to appear (so far): Adam Green, Kane Hodder, Parry Shen, Joel David Moore, Mercedes McNab, Joleigh Fioreavanti, Tamara Feldman, Richard Riehle, Patrika Darbo, Joel Murray, Derek Mears, Cody Snider, Tom Holland, Sid Haig, Caroline Williams, Sarah Elbert, Will Barratt, FX artist Robert Pendergraft, and more from the HATCHET franchise!  But that’s not all!  Other celebrity guests will be attending the celebration to show their support for this milestone anniversary including TWISTED SISTER’s Dee Snider, IMPRACTICAL JOKERS’ Brian “Q” Quinn, MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER’s Jonah Ray, SLEEPAWAY CAMP’s Felissa Rose, HOLLISTON’s Joe Lynch and Laura Ortiz, SCARY MOVIE’s Dave Sheridan, and many, many more.  With so much love and support from the entertainment industry and horror community- you never know who you might meet there!  So have your cameras ready, bring stuff to be signed, and have an arsenal of sharpie pens on you just in case you get a quick moment with someone you’re hoping to meet.  Video cameras will be on site to document this special night and capture statements from the fans to be shared with the world- so if you see one of our cameras, go say hello!

armylogoFor 10 years now this symbol has represented the greatest fans on earth.

This fan celebration is FREE!  So then… how do you get in??  Pay attention here because this info is important:  While Arclight has now moved this event on to one of their bigger screens, it is still first come first serve.  Showtime is expected to begin around 8pm and we’re told that the Arclight staff should begin seating fans around 7:15/7:30.  (Exactly when they begin seating people is entirely up to them so please be patient.)  We highly recommend lining up EARLY and not risking it.  Want to get moved to the front of the line?  Cosplay as your favorite character from the movies, wear your “Victor Crowley” Halloween mask, show your ArieScope pride (HATCHET, HOLLISTON, MARROW, MOVIE CRYPT, ADAM GREEN, ARIESCOPE and other shirts will surely help get you noticed by our staff) and you will be moved to the front of the line right before going in!   [NOTE: Use common sense.  No real weapons will be allowed inside so leave those out of your costume if you wear one.]

IMG_6564Be like this fan and get moved up in line!

For those who can’t get to Hollywood for this special night… fear not as we’re just getting started!  Cities, dates, and information about this Fall’s tour dates, screenings, and convention appearances will be announced SOON- including a very special event when Adam Green and Kane Hodder (“Victor Crowley” himself) will return to New Orleans for a special Halloween night celebration to dismember!  Tour information will be available soon so keep checking back here and follow Adam Green on Twitter (@Adam_Fn_Green) to hear announcements first and find out how to purchase tickets to upcoming screenings/events.  Organizing a tour like this, traveling like this, being away from home (and having to stop work on other upcoming projects) for so long is incredibly difficult to pull off.  We’re going to try and hit as many places as we can so please be patient and don’t take it personally if this tour can’t get to a theater near you.  We’re doing everything we can and it’s the biggest tour Adam Green has ever done.

For now- it’s all about this fan celebration on Tuesday night August 22nd at Arclight Hollywood on Sunset Blvd.  Come early, come prepared to have a party, and be prepared to celebrate 10 years of “Victor Crowley” with us.  In a perfect world there would be limitless seats and enough room for everyone, but reality dictates that the theater can only hold so many people.  So really… if you want to get in… line up early.  It’s going to be a bloody fun night!

Announcing ArieScope Records

EMP LABEL GROUP, the label founded by Megadeth’s DAVID ELLEFSON, has signed a deal with horror director/writer/producer ADAM GREEN (Hatchet, Holliston) to create ARIESCOPE RECORDS, Green’s own label imprint which will be manufactured, marketed, and distributed by EMP.  The imprint label will focus on hard rock and metal acts, as well as the scores and soundtracks for Green’s own film and television projects.

HaddonfieldORANGE

The first release for ArieScope Records will be “Ghosts of Salem”, a special live release from Green’s own band HADDONFIELD, which will be available September 15th on digital, and Friday, October 13th, on limited edition LP.

HADDONFIELD formed in Green’s hometown of Boston in the late 90’s, and became a large regional draw through legendary live performances. Though forced to relegate the band to a side project when his film career took off in the mid 2000’s, Green fully reactivated HADDONFIELD in 2017 after receiving an overwhelming response to two of the band’s songs played during a special live charity broadcast of THE MOVIE CRYPT podcast the previous summer.  Those tracks, and the rest of a classic band era live recording will be released this fall as “Ghosts of Salem” and HADDONFIELD will perform live during this October’s annual “Rock And Shock” horror and music festival in Worcester, MA.

Green has written and directed 10 feature films to date including 2010’s Sundance darling FROZEN, 2014’s genre bending and ground breaking DIGGING UP THE MARROW, and the hugely successful HATCHET franchise in which he created the modern day slasher icon “Victor Crowley.”  Green is also the creator, writer, director, showrunner, and one of the stars of the popular television sitcom HOLLISTON.  After an extended hiatus due to the tragic death of main cast member Dave Brockie (GWAR’s “Oderus Urungus”), HOLLISTON will continue on with its third season next year.

Green’s weekly podcast THE MOVIE CRYPT (which he hosts with fellow HOLLISTON co-star Joe Lynch) has become one of the most popular entertainment podcasts on the internet over the past 4 years.  Listed as one of Entertainment Weekly magazine’s “20 Podcasts You Should Be Listening To” in 2015, THE MOVIE CRYPT has been ranked in iTunes Top 25 “What’s Hot” in TV/Film podcasts every day of the week for the last 2 years.

Established in 1998, Green’s production company ArieScope Pictures has been a leader in genre fare for 2 decades. In addition to producing all of Green’s feature films and television series, ArieScope.com has become a destination site for horror and comedy fans around the world offering over 100 free short films and multiple seasons of original weekly series like “Adam Green’s Scary Sleepover” and “Horrified.”

Established in 2015 by Megadeth bassist and co-founder David Ellefson, the EMP record label is distributed by AMPED in North America, SPV in Europe, and limited titles by Universal in Japan.  EMP is the current home of such major artists as Doyle, Mark Slaughter, Bumblefoot, Dangerous Toys, Ignitor, Broken Teeth, Doll Skin, Madam X, Motograter, and now… Green’s own Haddonfield.

“I’m honored to partner with EMP for this new musical division of ArieScope Pictures,” says Green.  “As a lifelong metal and hard rock fan, I’ve always found ways to bring the music and the artists I love into my various film and television projects but I’ve missed performing music myself in a huge way over these last several years.  Starting an ArieScope imprint label, bringing HADDONFIELD back to the forefront, and getting to work with people I admire like David Ellefson and Thom Hazaert is just incredible.”

EMP Operations Manager Thom Hazaert says, “We are huge fans of Adam and his work, and it’s truly an honor to be the musical Robin to his Batman. He is a true music fan, and artist, and that said, music is never far from the pulse of his film projects, Holliston, Hatchet etc.  We are extremely excited and look forward to bringing you the fruits of this unholy union.”

Green is currently finishing his first novel and overseeing new issues of both the HATCHET and HOLLISTON comic book series.  His 10th feature film will be released in theaters later this year.
