Medusa Returns to the Screens this Summer: A Preview

Tagline: "Beauty is the Beast."

Medusa was originally titled Medusa: Queen of the Serpents. For U.S. audiences, the film has been shortened to the simpler Medusa. This film, from the United Kingdom, involves a woman bitten by a snake. Now, she is a deadly weapon. From director Matthew B.C. ("Connective Tissue"), Medusa is set to show in the United Kingdom this August, with a North American release date a ways off. As well, the film stars: Sarah T. Cohen (HellKat), Megan Purvis (The Young Cannibals), Nicola Wright and several others. For now, the film's newest movie poster is available here.

The graphic shows the one of Greek literature's classic villains. A creature that could turn men to stone just on viewing, Medusa's headdress is always made of poisonous snakes. The tagline is mix of the usual "Beauty and the Beast." And, this movie poster previews the insidious nature of at least one of the characters.

Medusa will release in the United Kingdom on August 4th, 2021 as Medusa: Queen of the Serpents. Other territories will announce their release dates as sales agent Devil Works shops Medusa to more and more countries. For now, the latest details on this indie thriller are here.

Release Date: August 4th, 2021 (United Kingdom) and TBA (U.S., Canada).

Director: Matthew B.C.

Writers: Matthew B.C., Scott Jeffrey.

Drive All Night Takes a Surreal Ride Through the Cinequest Film Festival this March

Drive All Night is a surreal thriller from director Peter Hsieh. Set to show at Cinequest later this month, the film's official trailer shows a taxi cab driver and his mysterious encounter with a young waitress. Together, they take a drive through the city, leading to strange adventures. Hsieh also wrote the script. And, the film stars: Lexy Hammonds (The Mystery of Casa Matusita), Yutaka Takeuchi ("The Defenders"), Johnny Gilligan. Now, a new poster and official trailer are available here.

The new poster, much like the trailer, utilizes strange lighting. Highlighting the dreamscape nature of the film, the odd lighting also creates a visual delight. All of the central characters are shown in the graphic, with the city skyline shown in the background. This movie poster reveals only a slice of the film's potential story.

The trailer also only reveals just a taste of the plotline. Characters are shown talking in a diner, or in Dave's (Takeuchi) taxi cab. But, where are these characters going?

Drive All Night will release at the end of March. The Cinequest Film Festival begins March 20th and lasts until the 30th. So, there will likely be more than one opportunity to see the film online. Cinequest looks to draw film fans of all types - to their Digial platform, in just a couple of weeks!
