Tuesday, December 23rd, 2014

I recently got my first check in the mail for Contracted: Phase 2, so I made a secret blog post about the shoot. That reminded me that Delivery is released and I can unlock all my old blogs about the shoot!

NOTHING BUT SPOILERS AHEAD!

Happy Holidays and stuff

Monday, December 1st, 2014

So, I took a break from blogging for a bit. I could say I took a break from acting, but really my normal jobby job was super busy for a few months so I didn’t have enough time for everything. Plus some misc personal life stuff was pretty stressful for a while. But things are ok and normal now. Unintentional break, over!

In the meantime I worked on a few student projects down at USC. I volunteered at a home for teen girls to help with a writing class a friend was doing. My husband and I did a very silly Hulu ad, which I haven’t seen, but apparently a friend of his mom’s did!

Oh and, Delivery: The Beast Within came out on DVD and got some more good responses. I preferred the theatrical poster, but this one is at least better than the UK version. They ended up photoshopping my face on another body, so I didn’t recognize it. I was like, “Those aren’t my ankles! I wish they were, but they are not!” They haven’t announced the streaming or cable dates yet, so I guess those deals are still in the works.

Then this month I get to be in another movie. I can’t say what but it’s going to be very fun. I can’t wait. As a bonus I booked it because they saw me in Delivery, which is pretty rad.

I’m also going back to class with Craig. I haven’t been in class in forever, so it’s so nice to be doing that again as well. All in all, I’m feeling optimistic about 2015. I’m hoping to be more focused than I was the last half of this year. I feel like I got pretty derailed and now I’m taking steps to getting back on track. Wooo wooo! (that is a train noise.)

 

Anyway, happy holiday season!

– Delivery: The Beast Within – A Recap

Monday, June 2nd, 2014

Last week, Delivery: The Beast Within was sent out into the world.

Tuesday it dropped on Amazon, Google Play, YouTube, as well as on cable. Oh, as well as on, like, every pirating site, of course.  Really that showed up before the US release, and apparently it was the US copy, not from the UK or Australia as I would have thought.

Then on Friday, it screened at 5 theaters across the country. LA, NY, Chicago, Indianapolis, and San Diego. It was a midnight movie, so I didn’t hold my breath for a full house, but it was very fun to celebrate before hand with friends and to see it with them in a theater, like a regular ol’ movie.

Friday was also when iTunes released it. We thought they were going to delay it for home video release later this year, but maybe they were just waiting to do it the same day as the theaters.

 

The majority of critics’ reviews so far are still positive. Our IMDB rating went down, but still above average and our Rotten Tomatoes score is at 80%.

Now that the film is released, I intend to go back and make my blog posts about the production public. I don’t want there to be spoilers for people who haven’t seen it yet and Google it. I haven’t looked at them since the shoot. It will be fun to remember everything.

Oooh, Delivery is on Yahoo’s Top Trailer’s this week.

Since  time passes and the front page changes, here is a screen grab! Rad!

 

 

Delivery – UK Release date and new artwork

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014

Our U.K. release is May 12th for home video through Metrodome Entertainment. They are keeping the name, but did a whole different design for the DVD cover.

If you are in the UK, you can pre-order it already!

The Australian version is also available to pre-order on Blu-ray or dvd. That will be released first, on Wednesday! I need to get my friend in Australia to send me a copy, just so I have one from a different territory.

DELIVERY: The Beast Within – coming to a theater near you (if you live in one of 5 cities)!!

Monday, April 21st, 2014

GREAT NEWS!

Last week (I’m kind of behind on blogging) it was announced that Delivery would be in theaters in LA, NY, Chicago, San Diego, and Indianapolis on May 30th!

We are also going to VOD on May 27th, so everyone in the US can see it!

The distributor is The Collective.  They decided to add a subtitle to make it easier to search for as well as indicate it’s a genre film. I don’t mind. I dig the new poster.  It’s creepy and effective.

They also released a new trailer to include some of the great quotes from reviews.

I will definitely be at the LA premiere on the 30th.  I don’t know what theater it will be at yet. Then I may be in LA again or go to San Diego for Saturday. Not sure. I’m pretty excited it’s going to Indy, since I have family nearby and they’ll be able to see it at the theater.

I’ve known it was sold since last summer, so I’ve been waiting almost a year for this announcement. YAAAAY! It’s such a relief.  There was talk of maybe pushing to August or September, but thankfully they didn’t wait.  I really needed something to promote. It’s been slow and I think having a theatrical premiere is something that might get people’s attention in the casting world.  Hopefully. ;)

French premiere of Delivery at Mauvais Genre Festival.

Monday, March 31st, 2014

Delivery has been selected to compete in Mauvais Genre, the big Sci-fi/Horror/Fantasy film festival in France.  It’s our French premiere so we recorded an intro for it a while back.  We filmed it the same time as the Toronto intro. We attempted a few French words, like bonsoir, but most is in English.  I’m pretty sure they will have French subtitles for the film since they had to get those all set up for the distributors already.

Sadly none of us can make it to the festival. It screens Thursday April 17 in Tours, France.

Two things- #1 I forgot to mention that Delivery won “Best Scare.” Woo!

And then here is the interview I did after the screening:
