Human-Trafficking Thriller “Carga” Gets Dark And Arrives On DVD/VOD This March

Rating: 3/5
Review by Richard Caldwell

As individuals, we all have ways that we see our lives turning out. The quest for betterment can carry us down strange roads. Often roads unseen leading to villages unheard of. In some of those villages terrible things happen & “Carga” is one of the latest films to speak on one of those things. That thing would be human sex trafficking.

This film follows young Viktoriya’s journey to a better life. After setting out on her quest, Viktoriya finds herself in a terrible situation. The young woman soon finds herself falling victim to a sex trafficking network. A network that sends woman to many different countries. Viktoriya is one of their latest victims.

This film is a good one. It touches upon important social issues. It also shows viewers how easy it is to get caught up in a terrible situation. Sex trafficking is a horrific crime. This film is definitely for mature audiences. Overall, I think viewers seeking more insight into the world of sex traffickers will enjoy it.

Film Sony Wanted To Block From Release, “Flay,” To Finally Bow This April

An independent production company that successfully sued Sony over their attempts to stop their movie from being released has not only won the case but set a release date for the title.

Flay, originally due for release in 2017, tells of a young woman who goes up against a malevolent faceless spirit. Sony claimed Phame Factory’s film was a rip-off of the Slender Man legend, which the studio believed they had exclusive rights to. As a result of the messy legal tangle, writer and producer Eric Pham opted not to release the film until he met the studio in court.

Sony, whose Slender Man movie was coming up for release, argued that Phame Factory’s Flay character was too similar to Slender Man (the Slender Man movie was released in August, 2018).

“I’m now very happy to say that we obtained a very favorable resolution of this lawsuit and finally have the legal right to release our feature film”, says Eric Pham on behalf of Phame Factory.

Phame Factory claimed its promotion, distribution and advertisement of Flay didn’t infringe Sony’s trademarks and copyrights and the lawsuit was wrapped two weeks ago.

Phame Factory has now set an April 2, 2019 release for the film, which stars Violett Beane (“God Friended Me”), and A. Michael Baldwin (Phantasm).
