Breaking Glass Pictures is proud to announce the release of the supernatural sleep paralysis horror feature CONJURING THE BEYOND from director Calvin More McCarthy (“Mutant Vampires from Planet Neptune”, “A Haunting In Ravenwood”). The film follows a young woman who joins a sleep study, only to discover what haunts her may not just be in her head…
“”Conjuring the Beyond” started as a literal nightmare”, said McCarthy. “About a year ago I had my first and only experience with sleep paralysis. At that moment, when I woke up I immediately thought of it as a movie. What if that WAS real. What if in that state between consciousness and unconsciousness our minds are susceptible to other worlds around us? Maybe the unconscious isn’t such a pretty place. The concept and the overall story for “Conjuring the Beyond” came quickly. It was one of those ideas that feels so hot that it almost writes itself.”
Starring Victoria Grace Borrello, Steve Larkin, Tim Coyle, Neil Green, Jax Kellington, Jon Meggison, and Chynna Rae Shurts, Conjuring the Beyond follows Wanda, recently divorced and feeling lost, who signs up for an alternative sleep study in a desperate attempt to alleviate her worsening mental health. Lead researcher, Dr. Richard Pretorious, is certain he can use hypnosis to combat the frightening condition of sleep paralysis. However, when the other participants start to go missing, and Pretorious becomes increasingly and dangerously obsessed with the “demons” of the human mind, Wanda must unravel the mystery of her condition before it’s too late…
“Breaking Glass is thrilled to be working with such a talented emerging filmmaker, and are happy to include Conjuring the Beyond in our lineup”, said Rich Wolff, CEO at Breaking Glass Pictures.
Conjuring the Beyond will arrive on September 13 on DVD and Digital, VOD platforms including iTunes, Amazon Prime Video, Google Play, Xbox, Vudu, as well as local cable and satellite providers.
Intinction is a short horror film made in 2022 written and directed by Bobby Canipe Jr. (Mom n’ Pop: The Indie Video Store Boom of the 80s/90s, Adjust Your Tracking, Shark Exorcist 2) in which this will be undoubtedly wedged into the Nun-Splatter genre with nods from the gore-hounds of horror.
Intinction will be apart of Donald Farmer‘s (RED LIPS, CANNIBAL HOOKERS, SAVAGE VENGEANCE, SHARK EXORCIST, DEBBIE DOES DEMONS) Nundead: Cannibals of The Cloth horror anthology film along with other “Nun” related horror segments.
Intinction is about four young adults venturing into an old house on the edge of town that was once the home of three nuns that cannibalized the rest of the convent, The young adventurous group have no idea what they are about to get themselves into and that the spirits of the cannibalistic nuns have returned.
My thoughts on this film is that Intinction is demented, extremely gory, and even hilarious at times if you dig the cheesy-campy side of horror. But don’t get fooled, this film has some very disturbing and creepy cinematography shots with great effects and a well done score to push the creepiness even further.

Women in Horror Month is still rolling along and the RudeHorror Podcast still has a couple more podcast episodes featuring Women in Horror left to air before the end of the month gets here. In addition to podcasts, I had a chance to chat with ActressAngie Stevenson and do a small interview with her about some of the horror films she’s acted in, Women in Horror of course, and to see what she is working on next. Angie is a California native and has acted in over 100 TV Series and films, some including the hit TV SeriesSons of Anarchy, Sci-Fi Alien Anthology filmXenophobia, Devil’s Domain, The Family, Piranhaconda and an upcoming Action Zombie film,Z Dead End. Read below for the full Interview!
If you can recall, what first got you into the Horror genre?
My first horror film was offered to me by director Joe Hollow to play Carmen in The Family. I remember him telling me he thought I had a very unique voice after my audition and he offered me a small two day shoot in Albany, New York.
Originally my role was much smaller but after I shot the two Directors, Joe Hollow and Wolfgang Myers liked the way I gravitated towards the main character in the scene making it look like I was his lady. They quickly decided to re-write me in as one of the leads and expand on the script. Within a few weeks I was flying back out to West Virginia to film the rest of the movie. It was a very positive experience for me and Joe Hollow really changed the course of my career and I’ll always be thankful to him for that.
What is your favorite Universal Monster or Universal Monster film?
With this being Women in Horror Month, who are some Women in Horror that you think should be recognized in horror?
Well in fact I think everyone should check out my friend and Co-star of Z Dead End, Eva Hamilton. She is a beautifully talented actress.
In the 2016 film Devil’s Domain, you played the Red Devil character. What was the make-up FX process like for that film?
Oh my goodness, well I was in the make up chair five hours getting ready two days in a row. It took about an hour and a half to get me out of the costume. The trickiest part which we learned after the first day was that once I was in costume, I couldn’t use the restroom… So the second day they made sure to shoot me out as quick as possible. The teeth were extremely creepy! I had a teeth mold made prior to filming and they really set the look of the red devil over the top.
You’ve been in Jim Wynorski’s Piranhaconda, What was it like working with Jim and do you have any fun stories working on that one?
That film was actually a lot of fun to make. Most of the film was shot in Hawaii but my scene was shot at the Arcadia Arboretum.
Jim hired me for the role of Deb and said “Just show up and Don’t look like sex symbol Angie Stevenson”. Lol in Jim’s charming way…So I came with my own wardrobe of big black reading glasses, khaki shorts and a V-neck sweater. We had a lot of fun filming.
You’re part of the cast in the upcoming zombie action film, Z Dead End. Can you tell us any stories about that film and your experience working on that film?
We started filming Z Dead End at end at the end of last year and are supposed to pick back up and finish this spring in Los Angeles.
We filmed in New York and it was action packed. I loved working with the stunt coordinators and stunt Zombies! They were really talented and fantastic!
I can’t give up too much, but I will tell you there was a mix-up with the hotel rooms when we arrived and everything was sold out. So….Eva Hamilton and I shared a room and a bed for the first two days. We had a lot of funny moments just meeting for first time on the plane and being tired from the long hours on set and travel. We became instant friends.
In 2011 you acted in the Horror Thriller film, The Family, what was your experience like working on that film alongside Modern Day Horror Legends Kane Hodder, Tony Todd and Michael Berryman?
Oh my goodness it was such a thrill. They were all wonderful but my most memorable memory was before a scene with Tony Todd. (He could tell I was nervous) He looked at me, paused for a minute and said “You’re powerful.. All you gotta do is Be Delicious”. (In his dark deep Tony Todd voice)
. What’s next for Angie Stevenson?
I have a few film projects in the works that I can’t speak of yet. I’ve also gotten very involved in the growing and evolving cannabis industry. I’m working on launching my own Cannabis a Beverage line called SYRENESS.
Is there anything else you’d like to let the fans know or where to follow you?
I’ve had her on the Rude Horror Podcast in the past to talk more in depth about Christmas Slasher during it’s Crowdfunding campaign. If you would like to listen to the episode click on the link here.
Since this month is considered Women in Horror Month (February) I wanted to interview Destiny because I know she is working very hard on various projects and always has that “Go-Getter” mentality that I admire. Here is the written interview with Destiny Soria.
If you can recall, what first got you into the Horror genre?
My mom, She will watch movies with me. My first movie with her was A Nightmare On Elm Street. She loved horror films and wanted to share that with me even when I was super young.
What is your favorite Universal Monster or Universal Monster film?
My favorite would be the Werewolf.
With this being Women in Horror Month, who are some Women in Horror that you think should be recognized and are there any horror films that have great portrayals of Women in Horror?
Back when I had you on the podcast last time, we talked about your upcoming film, Christmas Slasher, can you give us any new updates on the film?
We just finished the film and have a new teaser coming out soon. Right now we’re just getting it edited and clay animation done. Right now with this being worked on and other life problems, we really don’t have a release date for it.
If you could work with anyone within the horror genre, who would you want to work with and why?
Rob Zombie. I’ve been hearing from my films that I kinda have the same eyes as him in directing. So I would love to work with him and bring on a new project together. Get our ideas together on something would be cool.
Being both a director and an actress, do you find it hard to do both jobs or do you prefer one or the other more? It’s hard to do both. I love acting more. So I will be having a director work with me on my films.
What can you tell us about the film Crave: Roots of Evil that’s currently in the works?
I Haven’t really been on set for that and have no clue what’s going on with it. I know I have a role, but haven’t got any updates on it.
Do you have a favorite type of sub genre of horror?

On January 24, 2022 — Furious Nerd Productions announced the upcoming release of the feature film, Jack Be Nimble. This film was written and directed by award winning Director Steve Wollett during the height of the Covid-19 epidemic. The film stars the legendary Bai Ling (The Crow, Crank: High Voltage, Red Corner) and Vernon Wells (Commando, The Road Warrior: Mad Max 2).Jack Be Nimble is a comedy about old gamers set inside a nursing facility, where five old school role players live out their twilight years. They still game, and this gaming is what is keeping their spirits alive. One day, one of the gamers, who just happens to be suffering from alcoholic induced dementia, comes to suspect that a staff member is a demon. He gathers his friends and together they begin the quest they have been waiting for. “This film has a magic that I have not seen on a set since Mad Max” said Vernon Wells at the wrap party for Jack be Nimble.
Jack Be Nimble is scheduled to have its World Premiere in April 2022. The film has been entered into Fantasia, Tribeca, as well as several other festivals. A private screening of the film is schedule at Total Con on February 26. All who attend the convention may come to see it for free. For more information go to http://www.totalcon.com Nerd culture has become mainstream culture in recent years. Jack Be Nimble was inspired by the nerds that made this possible. With people like Gary Gygax, Mike Pondsmith, Stan Lee, and others, who gave us the characters and worlds we have come to love. As many of these greats are now dead or very old, Jack Be Nimble was inspired by their lives. The film answers the question of what we, as gamers, may be like when we are seventy or eighty years old. Better yet, it looks at how nursing facilities might be in the age of the geek. “Truly the best director and project I have worked with,” said Michelle Brown Houston, Project Manager for Furious Nerd Productions.
