“On the night of November 13, 1974, Ronald DeFeo, Jr. took a high-powered rifle and murdered his entire family as they slept. At his trial, DeFeo claimed that “voices” in the house commanded him to kill. This is their story.”
On this episode of Cinephellas Podcast, we interviewed the talented Diane Franklin (Better Off Dead/Bill &Ted ) about her role in the new horror film, The Amityville Murders. This is her second time in the The Amityville Horror franchise and she shares her experience getting cast in the film, the real Amityville House, and her upcoming projects.
THE AMITYVILLE MURDERS hits theaters, On Demand, and Digital today!
by Logan Myerz
Halloween is around the corner and the horror genre is making a giant comeback with many independent films being released to larger theaters across the world. From the general consensus, horror is here to stay with many films and TV Shows using nostalgic elements to draw the audience in and never let them go. What makes these types of films compelling is the thought process, direction, practical effects, and originality. As a huge fan of this genre, I also really appreciate newer concepts and incorporating factual events into a film that will set itself apart from other movies that play it safe.
‘Summer of ’84’ Is a Splash of Brilliant B-Movie Nostalgia
by Nile Fortner
Even though I wasn’t born yet, I know that 1984 was a fantastic year that gave us classics that would later go on to become classic nostalgia. The year 1984 gave us a Schwarzenegger as a futuristic killing-machine cyborg hunting down anyone named Sarah Connor in The Terminator. The year 1984 also taught us that Gremlins can’t get wet, Molly Ringwald was the O.G. red-head babe before Jessica Chastain (sorry Jessica), and that counting after “five and six you better grab your crucifix” before a red-and-green striped sweater wearing serial killer haunts your dreams.

Screamfest 2017: An Interview with Rachel Belofsy
by Logan Myerz
What does it take to be an artist? Is it the passion you put into your craft or is it the countless hours perfecting your craft? These are questions I ask myself everyday by researching, writing, reviewing, and creating videos on the Cinephellas website. Being a film-maker isn’t as easy as it looks and getting the film showcased in the industry isn’t an overnight process. The horror film genre is one that is easily overlooked for its creativity, chilling story-line, and jump scares. The Academy has not taken too kindly to the horror genre and it seems many great films are snubbed come Oscar Season. But does it really matter? With many film festivals today, there are movies awarded for the Best Feature, Directing, Cinematography, as they should be for the distinguished film-making skills. What I appreciate about this genre of film making is the blood, sweat, and tears put into every shot of the movie. More importantly, it’s not about making money or the fame, rather it’s about the art-form and making a piece that is memorable.
The House October Built 2: Interview with Zack Andrews and Bobby Roe
by Logan Myerz
When you think of the Halloween season, you probably think of two things, Haunted Houses and Horror movies. Both go hand in hand and if you’re an avid Haunted House attendee like myself, you can almost guarantee you will get the shit scared out of you before the month is over. But, what really draws people to these Haunted Attractions? Is it the adrenaline rush, overcoming your worst nightmares, or confronting the evil that lies beneath these houses?
The Houses October Built was a film that tackled these very questions in 2013 where a group of friends embarked on a road trip to find the ultimate Horror attraction. What they found out was more than they asked for and left the audience with many questions. The first film was one of my favorites of the year and I saw the film do well domestically with a pretty large following. I think the film did so well was the original premise, real life events that people can relate to, and showcasing the scariest places you can visit during the Halloween season.
