Witness the Apocalypse.
Aug 28 2012.


July 16th, 2012 - Actor and voice-over artist D.C. Douglas, famous as the voice of iconic video game characters such as Albert Wesker (Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles, Resident Evil 5) and Legion (Mass Effect 3), has joined the cast of Potent Media's new film "Apocalypse Kiss".
Douglas will be taking on the lead role of Adrian a.k.a The Red Harvest Killer in this oppressive sci-fi thriller being filmed in the first quarter of 2013. Douglas has recently been featured in shows such as "Two Broke Girls" and "Workaholics", among others. Douglas has been a supporter of Potent Media (the production company responsible for "Deer Crossing", which hits DVD on September 25th, 2012) for some time, and is excited to take on the role of Adrian, a serial killer with obsessive compulsive disorder.

MonsterMania and Piranha 3D!

It was great to see everyone at MonsterMania this past weekend! Mr. Potent and Roxsy Tyler were showing off the trailer for BOOLEY to the world, with the assistance of Johnny 13 and his lovely assistant. The positive response just makes me want to get the movie out faster! The first cut of the film is nearly done, so watch this space for an announcement about cast and crew screenings. Also, if you are a fan of horror films, please get out and see Piranha 3D in the theater. It was a fun film that delivers everything you would expect from a movie about killer fish. DEFINITELY not for the kids - as the poor bastards behind us found out at the screening I attended. - John

The Potent Archives - Philadelphia newspapers mention!

Thanks to Dan Gross for this press release on BOOLEY! (text listed here to preserve it after the link goes dead)

"In other movie news . . .

Writer/director Christian Jude Grillo is about to wrap "Booley," his first feature film, which has been shooting here for a few weeks. The "comical psychological thriller" features porn starlet Gina Lynn as a high school student and Howard Stern show regulars Richard Christy as a drug dealer and Sal the Stockbroker as a nosy neighbor. The film stars Tom Detrik as Angus Booley, a poor schlub who tries to better himself by following a self-help guru played by local actor Christopher Mann, whose credits include HBO's "The Wire." "Jersey Justice" director John Charles Hunt plays a detective in the film, which Grillo hopes to get into festivals."

Hey everybody,
we are only a short time away from the big-screen debut of BOOLEY! Some reminders about the screenings:
One of the problems with the Devon Theater is that they do not have attached dedicated parking. The theater is located at 6333 Frankford Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19135.
You can park on the streets around the theater.
There is also a lot located one block away from the theater at the Ethan Allen school, located at Levick and Battersby. We have permission to park there through an agreement with the theater.

Concessions - we will have soda and snacks for sale. All proceeds help Potent Pictures directly, so consume mass quantities!
We will also have limited-edition BOOLEY merchandise such as mini-posters and bumper stickers. Show your support for BOOLEY and buy some at the screening.
Can't wait to see everyone out there. We think we have something special to show you that was well worth the time of everyone who has supported us along the way.
Nov 8 2010.

BOOLEY gets yet more press in local Philadelphia newspapers

Check out this article which was in all of the Philadelphia neighborhood papers last week: BOOLEY Article Since I have run into an issue with the story, one point of clarity - Carmela Hayslett did not work on THE WISH. That was a misunderstanding by the writer of the article. I hope to have the online version of this changed this week. Potent Pictures apologizes for any misunderstanding.
Nov 17 2010.

BOOLEY - the screening aftermath!

Wow. I can't believe it is over!
Seems like we spent months getting to the screening, and it was over in a flash.
BOOLEY was shown to the public (a select few, not the general population) this past weekend, and people had a good time.
It was a blast to see everyone out there. I'm sorry I didn't get to spend a ton of time with anyone, but it was over in a flash.

Now, what can you do now as a BOOLEY fan? Just keep BOOLEY alive. Repost the links. Make quips about BOOLEY anywhere you visit on the internet. Put the link in your internet signature. Talk about it in radio and print interviews. Now that you know what BOOLEY is, help promote it.
This is just the middle of the is our hope that BOOLEY is a household name in the near future.
Keep your fingers crossed, thanks for your support, and remember the words of Jack Harrington: "You are the hammer...and they are the nails." -John K.

Curious about RED STATE? One of us saw it!

So, Kevin Smith made a horror movie...and John Kent went up to Boston to check it out. Read his review of RED STATE on his own personal blog HERE.
RED STATE is something the independent horror scene needs right now. There needs to be an alternative distribution model so that filmmakers can make money for their investors and continue to produce films. The strategy behind RED STATE is a step in that direction. Support it when it comes to your town (the wide release is in October - don't miss it! Love it or hate it, you will see few films as provocative as it this year)

Ernie Hudson talks DEER CROSSING at Horrorhound Weekend!

Ernie Hudson, one of the featured names ("as Captain Bailey") in DEER CROSSING actually discussed the movie at Horrorhound Weekend!
The panel was a good one, but if you just want to hear him talk about DEER CROSSING, jump to the 38 minute mark and listen to the end.

Video from Horrorhound Weekend
It's great to hear a real actor talk about the process of getting roles and how it is just another job to have.

DEER CROSSING East Coast Screening! & Happy New Year

Happy New Year to all the Potent fans out there.

Finally! DEER CROSSING - the film that warns "some lines shouldn't be crossed" - is ready to introduce you to horrors of Carvin County.

The first screening for cast, crew, supporters, and friends will take place at the Radisson Hotel in Trevose PA on Saturday, January 28th, 2012. Doors open at five PM, with the film to begin promptly at six PM.
There is no reserve seating, and no advance ticket sales - so show up early to guarantee yourself a seat.
We're happy to be able to bring this screening to you at the low, low price of $7 per person.
Potent Media wants to remind you that DEER CROSSING is easily an R-rated film, so while we will admit persons under 17 with parents in attendance, we aren't recommending that you bring the kiddies.
The Potent Media merchandise table will be in full effect, with DVDs of previous Potent productions, shirts, posters and more.
Many stars of Potent Media projects will be in attendance - before you ask, probably not Doug Bradley or Ernie Hudson - but you never know!

Once the film has finished screening, we ask you to stick around for a brief question and answer session, as well as a special survey asking your opinions on the film. Your feedback is important!
When we are finished with business, the party begins! There is a bar in the hotel where we'll party until they kick us out.
And if you need somewhere to stay, the hotel will be glad to accommodate you.

The Radisson Trevose is easily accessible from Route 95.
