The Hit Series Taking The US By Storm, “BUNKHEADS!” Arrives At Amazon Prime

“Bunkheads”, a new comedy-horror series described as Shaun of the Dead meets Zombieland, is taking North America by storm!

Since its debut on Amazon Prime, the popularity of the “hilarious, wholly original spin on a zombie tale” has grown substantially, with the indie success story’s fanbase hankering for more!

‘’Bunkheads ‘’now available on Amazon Prime.

The Award-Winning New Film From Kareem Mortimer, “Cargo,” In Theaters This May

Kareem Mortimer’s award-winning drama Cargo, starring Warren Brown (”Strike Back”) and Jimmy Jean Louis (”Heroes”), in theaters this May from Artist Rights Distribution.

A sensitive fisherman transforms into a prolific human smuggler to pay his debts in “a must see film*” inspired by true events.

When his income as a fisherman proves woefully insufficient to cover his son’s school fees, Kevin turns to human smuggling in order to raise desperately needed funds. Kevin finds that he’s good at this dangerous yet profitable vocation—good enough to trust himself with smuggling his own girlfriend and her son to the US. But when faced with having to abandon refugees at sea far from Miami shores, Kevin is suddenly forced to reassess his responsibilities. Inspired by true events, Cargo examines the world’s refugee crisis from a very local perspective. The largest Bahamian film project to date, this latest feature from Kareem J. Mortimer is a thrilling, vital call for empathy in troubled times.

Written and directed by Kareem Mortimer, and also starring Gessica Geneus, Persia White (“The Vampire Diaries”), Omar J. Dorsey (Halloween), and Jamie Donnelly (Black Mass), Cargo dives into theaters May 30.

From legendary FX Master Gabe Bartalos (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, Darkman) comes a “must-see for the truly adventurous” (UnseenFilms.net), premiering on Blu-ray, DVD and digital platforms May 14 from Severin Films.

Shot on Super 16mm and 35mm film, the highly-anticipated horror jaunt fixes on a classical musical conductor who unravels into the abyss of insanity. Jason Dugre (“Bosch”), Katy Sullivan (“Last Man Standing”), Peter Iasillo Jr. (HellBilly 58), Bob Zmuda (Man on the Moon) and Warwick Davis (Leprechaun, Solo, Return of the Jedi) star.

Amid a palette of dark themes, the film takes its audience on a turbulent ride through Bernard’s surreal adventures as he spirals into madness.

Luciana Faulhaber’s Unique, Female-Directed, “Don’t Look” Releases On VOD And DVD May 14

This May, take a wrong turn to hell.

Luciana Faulhaber’s unique, female-directed twist on horror films “Don’t Look” releases on VOD and DVD May 14 from Wild Eye Releasing.

Director and co-producer Faulhaber says of the film: “It was important for me to create work that shows the female characters as they are in real life – none of us are waiting to be saved by some prince charming.”

Faulhaber stars in the film alongside Jeff Berg, Jarrod Robbins, Curtis K. Case, Lindsay Eshelman, and Javier E. Gómez.
