Burlesque Massacre breaks out, website breaks record again.

Last February 2011 we released our retro 70s horror/exploitation film "Burlesque Massacre" on DVD and VOD. Over the past year instead of losing sales over time like most releases, 'Burlesque' actually picked up sales and VOD rentals each month. Last month and this month were the highest DVD sales ever for the film and awareness got even higher when the films awareness shot up 8000% on the IMDB. While the IMDB star ranking for the movie has obviously been mixed (Burlesque Massacre is a VERY odd, bizarrely retro film that is NOT for everyone) but, most who actually took the time to review the film have given it high marks for what it is.... whatever that may be.

Our favorite review for the film was posted back when it first came out by a Amazon member named "Explorator" who has over 90 reviews for all sorts of films. Check out the review below.

IT'S EXACTLY WHAT YOU THINK IT IS!
"This ultra low budget flick is one that wears its campy style on its sleazy sleeve and is actually a lot fun if you're a fan of B-movie horror. There's LOTS of hot chicks (yes, there is also ample amounts of nudity and several softcore sex scenes), lots of tattoos on some of the girls, a decent amount of bloody kills, several creepy strangulation scenes, an emphasis on kinky imagery / bondage and 'edgy' style Burlesque dancing. The slightly grainy 'film effect' and old style 'film color' adjustments along with the authentic sounding retro music in the background achieves an effect similar to that of a 70s grindhouse movie (almost) and is much better of an effect than you usually see in movies that try it. The script is OK and isn't annoying like so many no-budget horror movies tend to be. The actors talk like real people for the most part and don't sound like they are reading directly from a script. I was never bored or felt the need to fast forward any scenes (which is rare with these kinds of movies). I don't want to give away anything by describing the storyline or kills as they are sometimes surprising and should be watched with no prior knowledge of what is going to happen. Overall this is a fun and entertaining B-Movie that is exactly what I thought it would and should be. Check it out if you like these types of movies. You probably won't be disappointed."


We feel this review hits the movie right on the head. It's just a whole lot of fun, that doesn't take itself too seriously. While it has a few things going on underneath at a slightly twisted level for those who want to dig deeper.. for the most part its just a retro exploitation film that was designed to capture a type of film not made anymore.

We are so happy word of mouth has grown over this past year, and we do have a sequel planned for 2013. You can purchase the Burlesque Massacre DVD HERE or rent/purchase it via Amazon VOD. You can check out more info and the trailers HERE

Meanwhile the website itself also broke its unique visitor record again this past month reaching 1,200 for January.

Stay tuned for many more updates in February including the final two episodes of the web series "Obsession" and info on our next DVD release "Lucid Fear".

Right now however, you can pick up our new release of "PhotoGRAPHIC" which came out last Friday on AMAZON as well. For more info on that film and its two trailers you can visit its page HERE.

Our dark and violent revenge film set in the LA actress and model community has arrived on DVD!

"Photographic" written and directed by Timothy Whitfield has a very different vibe then his previous release, the over the top exploitation film "Burlesque Massacre" - This film is a much more serious and realistic tale about a group of dangerous photographers out to rape, torture and kill up and coming models in the LA talent scene.

We have a brand new full trailer below and for more plot details, production details like cast lists and more, you can check out OUR PAGE on the film.

Black Widow wrap party with Ynot/SinPelo, DVDs in the works.

While the 'Diary Of A Black Widow' series is long since wrapped and even available for viewing at tellofilms.com - The Ynot/Sin Pelo team had one big wrap party for all of their works over the last 2 years. Among them the before mentioned Black Widow, as well as the feature films 'Crossroads' and 'Into The Equinox', all of which Timberwolf took part in on various levels.

Many actors, shooters, producers, fans and friends of both Ynot/SinPelo and Timberwolf turned out for food, drinks and a cool video show of trailers and the first 5 minutes of 'Crossroads'. The night was a big success and we hope to have more of them in the future.

Now that the fun and partying is over, Rydell Danzie and Tim Whitfield will now get back to work on Black Widow as they will recut the series into a feature film to be released on DVD. The feature will include footage not shown in the series as well as a sound and visual polish over all the footage. The DVD is aiming for March/April.

The Timberwolf revenge feature 'Photographic' is at the distributors and is being processed. We do not have a date yet, but as soon as we know, you will know. That said, its only a matter of days now.

Stay tuned for two more episodes of "Obsession" over the next few weeks as well as more news on the feature 'Lucid Fear' which also has a DVD on the way. Finally, our new Vampire feature film starts pre-production soon.

Big year for Timberwolf and Ynot/SinPelo on the way!
