First news on DEER CROSSING! Doug Bradley!
So, while we have been arranging to sell BOOLEY on DVD, we have also been assembling a new Potent Pictures film, DEER CROSSING.
DEER CROSSING is a hardcore story of horror that will definitely shock a few people.
In our endeavor to provide the best in film terror, we have secured the services of Mr. Doug Bradley - better known as "Pinhead" in the HELLRAISER series.
Our friends over at Fangoria broke the news - you can see more details on their site:Fangoria article on Deer Crossing

Potent store reopened!
Get your BOOLEY, BELIAL, and Roxsy merchandise now!
One note for our loyal fans - the Roxsy merchandise is it's own store, so the orders for Roxsy merch and Potent Media merch cannot be combined.

THE BIG ONE! DEER CROSSING filming begins this weekend!
Alright...we are finally here. DEER CROSSING begins filming this weekend!

We have also officially CONFIRMED Michael Madsen for the film! He will essay an essential role in the film. Along with Doug Bradley - the infamous actor behind "Pinhead" in the HELLRAISER films, this is the largest Potent Media production to date.
Watch for more announcements soon - and watch out for the DEER CROSSING!

URGENT UPDATE: Madsen, Monster Mania, and DEER CROSSING
Unfortunately, Potent Media is sad to announce that Michael Madsen will not be appearing in DEER CROSSING, or appearing with us at Monster Mania this upcoming weekend.

We will have DVDs available from the Potent catalog - if you've been holding out, now is the time to buy your copies of BOOLEY and BELIAL, as well as the first-ever Roxsy Tyler's Carnival of Horrors DVD.
Watch this space for an announcement about further DEER CROSSING casting.

So, this Friday 8/26/11, please listen to Preston and Steve on WMMR radio in Philadelphia for an exclusive interview with the new actor we have added to DEER CROSSING - Mr. Ernie Hudson!

DEER CROSSING East Coast Screening! & Happy New Year
Happy New Year to all the Potent fans out there.
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.
