The Horror Honeys: Honey Buzz ~ Look Out, Indie Horror, You Have A New Champion!

Honey Buzz ~ Look Out, Indie Horror, You Have A New Champion!

For those of you who have been following the Honeys for a little while, you'll be aware that we have a bit of an ongoing relationship with indie writer/director/director Harrison Smith. We've reviewed three of his movies (6 Degrees of Hell, The Fields, Camp Dread), and our blurbs have appeared on two of his DVD releases (Camp Dread and the upcoming Zombie Killers). You should also know by now that we don't squee over nothing. Harrison knows his horror, and he doesn't beat around the bush when it comes to making stuff that genre fans will appreciate on every level. You can listen to Harrison's special approach to horror and horror filmmaking on our podcast HERE.

You might also know that the Revenge Honey in particular has a special place in her heart for genre legend Felissa Rose (Sleepaway Camp).  So, imagine my delight when Harrison dropped this little press release in my lap yesterday...

Brick Top Productions, Inc. (otcqb:BTOP), representing the newest thinking in entertainment industry profitability, and known for its award winning, heart pounding entertainment, is pleased to announce that it has entered into an Executive Services Agreement with Harrison Smith and Felissa Rose. 
Producer / Director, Harrison Smith, is well-known in the horror genre.  He has worked with such Academy Award stars as nominee Eric Roberts, winner Cloris Leachman, as well as Billy Zane, Dee Wallace, Danielle Harris, Mischa Barton and many others.  Through his production company, Class of '85, Smith has had remarkable success with independent genre films.  Most recently, he produced and directed Zombie Killers: Elephant's Graveyard which was acquired by Anchor Bay Entertainment and Red Sea Media.  It is set for wide release in February 2015 and is expected to be a box office winner. 
Legendary Actress / Producer, Felissa Rose, has been transforming the horror genre since she pioneered the role of Angela in the cult classic Sleepaway Camp series.  After attending NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, Felissa appeared in countless movies, turning more recently to production of film and television content.  A talented fan favorite on both sides of the screen, Felissa brings incredible buzz to her projects. 
Smith and Rose join Brick Top as co-Heads of Independent Genre Film Development, subject to the Company's funding of their project, Love Bites, based on the best-selling book by famed horror actress, Adrienne Barbeau (The Fog, Creepshow, Swamp Thing, Escape From New York) .  Together with Brick Top, they expect to take the popular novel and rework it into a feature length film.  Based on its popularity, we expect Love Bites to be another box office success.
Alexander Bafer, CEO of Brick Top, commented, "We're excited to work with Harrison and Felissa.  Their talent, professionalism and work ethic is reflected in each of their projects.  Their quality productions are extremely popular with viewers and are on par with the best in the business."   
Mr. Smith added, “We are thrilled to be working with this stellar group. We plan a slate of films that we expect to be creative and commercial successes as we expand this division of Brick Top." 

Here at HH, we're staunch supporters of Indie Film, and we're also pretty damn sure that the key to the future of horror is locked within an untapped Indie market. We can't WAIT to see what Felissa and Harrison have planned, and you can find news about their upcoming projects right here at Horror Honeys!
