‘Space Babes from Outer Space’ World Premiere & Pre-Order!

March 31, 2017

Bandit Motion Pictures will premiere its latest film, Space Babes from Outer Space, on Saturday, May 20th, at The Gateway Film Center in Columbus, Ohio. Many cast & crew will be in attendance — tickets are on sale now!

Bandit has also launched a pre-order campaign on Indiegogo, where contributors can reserve a 2-Disc ‘Stacked’ Edition of the movie on blu-ray. The ‘Stacked’ Edition is an Indiegogo exclusive that will not be available anywhere else once the Indiegogo campaign is over. Other pre-order exclusives include ‘Choose Your Own Adventure Stripteases’ on the bonus disc, Space Babes trading cards with every pre-order, and reversible cover art signed by all three leading ladies – Ellie Church, Allison Maier, and Alyss Winkler. Pre-orders will ship in June, before the standard edition of the movie is available to the public. The pre-order campaign ends April 12, so don’t miss out!

Space Babes from Outer Space was written and directed by Brian K. Williams (Time to Kill). The film follows three beautiful Space Babes (Church, Maier, and Winkler) who find themselves stranded on Earth when their spaceship runs out of energy after a dangerous encounter with their mortal enemies, the Scrotes. Once they discover human sexual arousal can recharge their ship, they accept the help of a lonely farm boy (Brian Papandrea) to harnass energy at a local strip club and get back home — all while avoiding the nasty Scrotes.  Space Babes from Outer Space features puppet creations from The Clockwerk Creature Company and a soundtrack of 80s-style pop and synth artists.

‘Space Babes from Outer Space’ Going into Production This December!

November 2, 2016

Brian K. Williams and Scott Schirmer at Bandit Motion Pictures have announced that Space Babes from Outer Space will be their third feature film production, tentatively scheduled to shoot this December in south-central Indiana. “After doing two pretty somber movies, we’re ready to shake things up and make an all-out comedy,” says Williams. “But not just any comedy — a sexy space comedy!” Williams has written the script, and will co-produce and co-direct with Schirmer.

“It’s the kind of fun, sexy, feel good film that I grew up watching as a teenager in the 80’s, and I’ve always wanted to bring that sort of thing to the screen. With a cast of characters that are truly out of this world, it’s Barbarella meets Screwballs, with a dash of Splash, and tons of laughs.”

Bandit is currently casting the film and plans to release it next Spring. Anyone interested in contributing to the production can purchase a Collector’s Edition VHS copy of Plank Face or a complete set of Plank Face trading cards. Both items are available in limited quantity at the Bandit Motion Pictures web store (http://banditmotionpictures.com/fundraising-for-space-babes-from-outer-space/) and all proceeds go to the production of Space Babes from Outer Space. Bandit is also auctioning off screen-used props and wardrobe from Plank Face at http://www.ebay.com/usr/swayland7 to further supplement the new film’s budget. (Auctions go live at 11:30 am Eastern on Wednesday, November 2nd.)

“Our company mission is to release two features a year for as long as people seem interested in what we make and for as long as we can afford to make them,” says Schirmer. “We’re definitely not finished with horror. We think Space Babes will have a lot of cross-over appeal with horror fans, actually. After going to the dark places Harvest Lake and Plank Face took us, we think our audience is ready to laugh and have a good time with the Space Babes. I know we are!”

Bandit Motion Pictures has released their latest film, the backwoods thriller Plank Face, on limited edition DVD and Blu-ray, and on Amazon Video. The limited edition discs are region-free and available worldwide exclusively at BanditMotionPictures.com. At Amazon Video, the film is available for rental or purchase in the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, and Austria. It can be viewed for free by Amazon Prime subscribers.

Plank Face held its world premiere at the Gateway Film Center in Columbus, Ohio, on Saturday, August 27th.  At the Fright Night Theatre Film Festival on September 30th, the film took home awards for Most Shocking Film, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Cinematography, and Best Music Score. The film also picked up awards at the Nightmares Film Festival in Ohio, the Optical Theater Film Festival in Rome and the Night of Horror International Film Festival in Sydney, Australia.

Plank Face is about a man who is captured by a feral, wood-dwelling family of cannibals who want to make him part of their tribe. “It deals with our primal nature,” says director Scott Schirmer (Found). “The characters in Plank Face live like wild animals, but they’re also very free. So the prospect of joining them is both enticing and a little terrifying.” The film stars Nathan Barrett, Susan M. Martin, Brigid Macaulay, Alyss Winkler, Jason Hignite, and Ellie Church, and has received positive reviews from Fangoria and Tom Holland’s Terror Time.

dvd-front-cover-art“If the film continues to do well,” says Schirmer, “We’d really like to consider one or two sequels and make this a franchise. The first film just sets up the characters, really. We could really have a lot of fun with a sequel, and I’d love to work with this incredible cast again.”

BANDIT MOTION PICTURES ANNOUNCES ‘HARVEST LAKE’ EUROPEAN PREMIERE AND WORLDWIDE STREAMING RELEASE

Bandit Motion Pictures has released Harvest Lake on Amazon Video and Vimeo-on-Demand. The release comes after the film’s festival run, which included screenings at the Nocturna Film Festival in Madrid, the Cinemafantastique International Genre Festival in Vancouver, and the Obscura Film Festival in Berlin.

Harvest Lake features Tristan Risk (American Mary) and Ellie Church (Headless) in a hypnotic, erotic horror/mystery about vacationing friends who fall under the seductive spell of a libidinous, otherworldly creature that threatens to change their lives forever. “It began as a creature feature,” says Schirmer. “But it quickly evolved into a movie that was more about sex and the Id. What happens when we let the Id win? Can sex change us forever? Can it destroy us? I enjoyed making the movie as a fun, weird, and sexy way of exploring these questions. I hope audiences find it both disturbing and arousing.” Harvest Lake is the second feature from Schirmer, whose first film Found played at over 40 festivals worldwide and has been released on DVD and VOD in North America, the UK, Germany, and Australia.

Limited Edition Blu-rays are currently available exclusively at www.banditmotionpictures.com while supplies last.

Sexy Strange ‘Harvest Lake’ Coming Soon from Forbidden Films and Mostly Harmless Pictures

October 22, 2015

Principal photography has wrapped on Harvest Lake, director Scott Schirmer’s follow-up to the award-winning Found. “It’s strange, it’s sexy, and it’s creepy. I like that combination,” says Schirmer, who also wrote the screenplay. “When you watch this movie, you wander into a sort of sexual Bermuda Triangle, and before you know it, you’re in an erotic creature feature.”

The film centers on a group of vacationing campers who stumble under the spell of a libidinous, otherworldly presence in the woods. Inhibitions drop and behavior becomes erratic as one of the friends tries to escape the carnal free-fall, ultimately bringing him face to face with the source of a mystery that will change his life forever.

Harvest Lake stars Tristan Risk (American Mary, The Editor), Ellie Church (Headless, Time to Kill) , Jason Crowe (Dead Moon Rising, Easter Casket), Dan Nye (The Legend of Wasco, Rhonda Rides to Hell), and Kevin Roach (Volumes of Blood, The Confession of Fred Krueger). The film is the first co-production of Forbidden Films (Headless, Found) and Mostly Harmless Pictures (Time to Kill), produced by Schirmer and Brian K. Williams, who is also editor and director of photography. Arthur Cullipher (Headless) is associate producer, with his Clockwerk Creature Company providing the special makeup effects.

The film will enter the festival circuit next spring, but in the meantime Williams and Schirmer are fundraising for post-production, festival, and promotional expenses. Through November 20th, you can contribute to the film and receive special thanks credit and a limited edition blu-ray copy of the film that will ship in January, months ahead of the movie’s festival premiere.
