We are delighted to showcase a series of independent films beginning with Roxanne Benjamin’s highly anticipated “Body At Brighton Rock”
We here at The Future Of The Force completely love bringing the latest news, reviews and articles to our readers. We have been focusing mainly on the major studio’s releases as many of our readers enjoy our writings on them and write back to us telling us what they enjoyed or hated about films, Blu-Rays and books we write about and review. However, I have thought about looking into smaller, independent films to write about, review and to champion. Many of these low budget, smaller films show some of the Hollywood blockbusters how filmmaking should be done. With passion, style and heart.
Allow me to start with this small film I’ve recently become aware of. ‘Body At Brighton Rock’ is the second full-length feature film from Director Roxanne Benjamin, the first being ‘Southbound’ back in 2015. She has also directed a short movie called ‘Final Stop’ and contributed a segment to ‘XX’ entitled ‘Don’t Fall’.
Body at Brighton Rock is presented by Magnolia Pictures and Magnet Releasing and is described as ‘A survival thriller about a novice park ranger who must spend the night guarding a potential crime scene on a remote mountain trail’. The first trailer for the film is available to watch below…
The film stars Karina Fontes who appeared in the films ‘Southbound’ and ‘The Deleted’, Emily Althaus who has been seen in Netflix’s ‘Orange Is The New Black’, ‘Law And Order: Special Victims Unit’ and ‘The Strange Ones’ and stuntwoman Casey Adams who has plied her trade in such well regarded Hollywood fare as ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol.2’, ‘Dunkirk’ and ‘Wonder Woman’ among others as well as 34 credits as an actress and more than 150 stunt credits to her name.
The film will be available on VOD and in selected Theatres on April 26th. After viewing the trailer, I believe the film could be an excellent thriller to get your teeth into, Literally! The film promises a chilling game of cat and mouse alongside our female protagonists battle against nature and a rather large Grizzly Bear.
Check out the trailer and hopefully, you’ll join in the fun when the film comes your way in April.
Until Next Time.
