One flick I'm actually really looking forward to is AMONG FRIENDS. I'll tell you why with three simple reasons. I love slashers. I love hotties. And I love Danielle Harris. Here we've got a slasher flick... filled with hotties... not only starring Danielle Harris, but directed by her as well. Yeah... Now you know how I feel.

With that being said I've come here today to give you all some great news regarding AMONG FRIENDS! You see Aspect Films have just issued a press release stating how their genre arm Chiller Films has secured worldwide sales rights to AMONG FRIENDS and will be bringing that shite to the European Film Market later this month! Natch!

When asked about the pick-up Aspect CEO Hugh Edwards responded with the following: Having taken the genre world by storm, starring as Jamie Lloyd in Halloween 4, as well as playing Bruce Willis daughter Darien Hallenback in The Last Boy Scout, Danielle Harris has built an impressive resume as an actress. She now looks set to match that success in the directors chair, and were thrilled to have secured the international rights to her debut at the helm."

I don't know about the rest of you but Danielle Harris has done more than enough to earn my money with every role she's in. With that being said I cannot wait for AMONG FRIENDS! Coming from a script by Alyssa Lobit, who also stars in the film, AMONG FRIENDS reads:

AMONG FRIENDS is a horror (and a comedy, depending on how twisted you are) about a dinner party gone wrong. Set against an 80s backdrop, the good time takes a dark turn when one in the group hijacks the evening in an attempt to help the others come clean about their secret betrayals against one anotherand is willing to cut through the bone in order to expose the truth.

Along with Harris and Lobit the horror/comedy also stars Chris Backus, Jennifer Blanc Biehn, AJ Bowen, Brianne Davis, Kane Hodder, Dana Daurey, Kamala Jones, Chris Meyer and Tanya Newbould. We'll of course be on the lookout for any other updates on AMONG FRIENDS that roll our way within the next few weeks so be sure to check back soon for more!

Hell yeah looking forward to this! Love Danielle, she's a great actress and hopefully very good director. She direct a short a few years ago that was supposed to be a part of an anthology movie called Prank but the other 2 parts (directed by Heather Langenkamp and Ellie Cornell no less) were never filmed for budget reasons and it unfortunately never seen the light of day (to my knowledge). Which was a shame cos the project sounded very promising.

The way I initially heard about this was pretty cool. A kid was doing an interview with her for his fansite at Horror-Hound and was asking others to submit questions, which I did even though I met her at the same convention. My question was "Being someone who has worked in horror films since you were a child, have you ever thought about making one?" It was the first question he asked her and she got all excited and started talking about this project. Anyway, I think this is going to be

Anyway, I think this is going to be great, Danielle has a lot of experience in the slasher genre and knows exactly what us fans want.
