Zombie with a Shotgun Spins the Undead Genre Around

Zombie with a Shotgun spins undead genre aroundNew York, New York – Indie studio, Film Brewery, releases a high-style psych-thriller that looks at the untraversed side of undead legends in the feature, Zombie with a Shotgun, now available through streaming services, Amazon, Google Play, and TubiTV.

Director and Writer, Hilton Ariel Ruiz, presents a unique take on the zombie-genre supported by a cast of popular indie film veterans, which includes Braeden Baade, Kathryn Kuhn and Kyle Hester. The story follows Aaron, who makes an arduous journey with his girlfriend, Rachel, to uncover the deep secrets of the zombie virus and how it is affecting his future and their relationship.

Ruiz said, “Zombie with a Shotgun is that zombie film where all the rules we know about zombie films go right out the window. It was filmed against the backdrop of New York City, with edgy drone shots and an amazing animation piece from Robin Steele, who created Stick Figure Theater for MTV’s Liquid Television.”

Hester shared production memories, “Zombie with a Shotgun was an all encompassing indie film experience. We were filming in a basement in Manhattan and running around the city at night, chasing zombies. I loved every minute of it and Hilton Ariel Ruiz is one of the new kings of indie. I can’t wait to bring bounty hunter, Hank Ray, back to life in the sequel!”

Hester’s words are an appropriate tease; Zombie with a Shotgun is scheduled as a continuing project. There is a companion comic series, which ties to the feature film.

Ruiz confirms, “The print copies add expansion to the film’s universe, as many elements from that series are in the feature. The first comic issue of Zombie with a Shotgun was released in 2017, with artwork provided by Simone Gugliemini, best known for his work on Image comics Near Death. We’ve rolled out four more issues so far and the world of ZwaS has become even more extended. Everyone will see more of the overall story in the sequel feature film, as we plan to start production at the end of 2020.”

Digital Parchment Services publisher, Jean Marie Stine remembers, “William Rotsler was truly a renaissance man. He was an acclaimed sculptor, filmmaker, photographer, reporter, novelist, illustrator, cartoonist, and the recipient of multiple awards.

Back in print for the first time in 40 years, The Golden Age of Erotic Cinema is Rotsler’s personal view of the rise of adult filmmaking in the 1960s, beginning with Russ Meyer’s phenomenal success with Deep Throat – the movie that put adult films on the map.

Severe Society Films Releases Fetish Feature Epic ‘Treacherous’

severe society films treacherous fetish epic featureLos Angeles, CASevere Society Films is proud to announce the release of ‘Treacherous’, by far their most ambitious project to date.

Co-directed by SSF co-owner Dee Severe and infamous director/performer Aiden Starr, “Treacherous” took a year to shoot, and sports a four-hour running time with many DVD extras.

‘Treacherous’ follows the behind-the-scenes plotting, power plays and overall treachery of the owner and managers of a twisted underground sex club. The film features over 50 performers and extras including Starr and Severe, Tim Woodman, Caroline Pierce, Nikki Darling, Mickey Mod, Dana DeArmond, Kiki D’Aire, Charli Piper, Jay Taylor, Jessie Parker, Maia Davis and Ruckus.

A power struggle between club managers Aiden and Tim spurs the quest for bigger, more extreme live sex shows. Aiden scores big with a “ladies’ lunch” strap-on gangbang, starring 7 vicious Dommes having their way with extreme anal performer, Slut Bottom Chris. Later, Tim plots revenge with his house slave while Aiden bonds with the club’s owner (Severe), as the two amuse themselves by tormenting the resident slave boys. The women make their most extreme move to solidify power amid a spectacular BDSM sex show that’s a 3-ring circus of deviant action.

“It’s the Gone with the Wind of fetish movies!” laughed Severe. “We wanted to really challenge ourselves and bring all our mainstream indie filmmaking experience to porn–and I’m so glad we did. This is the best movie we’ve ever done. It was also an incredible experience to co-direct with Aiden Starr, she was a perfect partner in crime!”

“It was a delight and an honor to work with Aiden on this project,” added co-star Woodman. “This was a twisted, evil, sexy, horrible, wonderful romp and I loved every second of it.”

“Treacherous is the most ambitious project that I’ve ever co-directed. It’s enormous, lush, deviant, violent and dangerous,” said Aiden Starr. “Working with Severe Society was like a perfect storm. The combination of talent, resources and fetish experience snowballed into a mountain of a movie. I was really pleased to incorporate so many of my fetish and porn performer comrades into one giant fuck fest!”

“While some of the larger mainstream adult films companies have taken on productions of this scope, I think this is a first for a fetish film,” noted SSF co-owner Jimmy Broadway, who served as executive producer, cinematographer and lighting designer for the project. “Treacherous has something for everyone–female Dommes, male Doms, female subs, male subs– in every possible pairing. There is nothing like it out there today.”

Stripper: Natasha Kizmet movie box
Hollywood, California – Netflix adds the independent comedy release, ‘Stripper: Natasha Kizmet’ to their popular streaming video rental service.

‘Stripper: Natasha Kizmet’ is a broad comedy, shot in a mocumentary style, that follows a naive, strikingly beautiful girl from Uzbekistan, who comes to America seeking fame and fortune as the producer and star of a belly dancing concert tour. Instead of finding her golden ticket to Hollywood stardom, she takes a comedic detour through a world inhabited by sleazy photographers, malevolent strip-club owners and pimps, a sex-addicted preacher, and an unexpected side-trip to a porn convention, which lands her in the cloying clutches of adult entertainment personalities, including Tony Batman and Ron Jeremy.

Director and screen writer, Michael Drumm co-produced the mocumentary with Kizmet, who also shares writing credits. ‘Stripper: Natasha Kizmet’ has achieved cult movie status, since its release in 2009. The title garnered Kismet the “Silver Screen Best Actress Award” from The Nevada Film Festival. The movie was also featured in the 2010 Saint Petersburg Nomadic Tendencies Film Festival and the Hollywood Mock Film Fest in 2011.

The film’s long list of co-stars and featured characters include Batman, Carlo Galliano, Rod Halmshaw, Jeremy, Kimberly Kole and Jennifer Leahy, among many other adult performer cameos.

Batman recalls, “Michael Drumm spotted Natasha on the floor with me at the 2009 Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas. We’d struck up a friendship at one of the hotel parties, after she congratulated me on my Screaming O Road Show emcee work, which landed me on Oxygen’s ‘Bad Girls Club’. The following day, Natasha came along with me while I was doing interviews with the models and porn stars at the show, for my A! Entertainment broadcast. She was interested in doing some interviews, so I handed her the microphone. Producer Michael Drumm saw something special in her improvisational skills while she was doing those interviews and asked, ‘Why don’t we make a movie about you?’ He and Natasha wrote a part in the movie for me, because we played off each other so well.” reviewer, Ben Arispe writes, “This was a great movie. I enjoyed Natasha being so innocent and funny! Natasha narrates the entire movie, and for those of you who like beautiful women with foreign accents, this is a definite plus! Natasha comes across as very personable and sweet, and for those funny parts in the movie she’s a very good sport!”

‘Stripper: Natasha Kizmet’ is un-rated due to adult content and multiple topless scenes. A trailer is available at
