Old Titles and New Productions

We posted last week that our 2012 release PHOTOGRAPHIC was now available on VIMEO ON DEMAND.... and now our 2011 release BURLESQUE MASSACRE is also available on VIMEO ON DEMAND. Both of these titles are still available at AMAZON on both DVD and VOD - but we just wanted try out a wider VOD reach.

We are prepping a new VOD and DVD release for two other productions, one of which is the 2012 Diary Of A Black Widow web series, which has been edited into a 90min feature.

Finally we are currently planning a NEW feature film. More on that as we know more.

Wow.. a TIMBERWOLF update?!?

Hey fans,

It's been quite awhile... but we are NOT dead.

Lots of stuff going on for a new web series, a new feature and more. But we are gonna keep back the news for a little bit as we develop more solid news.

That said, we do have a wider reach/availability for our feature PHOTOGRAPHIC. While it is already available on DVD and online rent over at AMAZON, it is also now available on VIMEO worldwide. You can both rent and/or download it to own on Vimeo On Demand. In addition this new online version is the UNCUT 83min DVD version. The Amazon online version was edited down 78min with 5min less gore/sexual content and nudity.

Check it out! And we will have new updates on new projects soon.


Great PhotoGRAPHIC review.

Our latest feature PhotoGRAPHIC is doing well on both DVD and VOD and has just got a great review from "The Straw Man" who has tons of reviews on websites and Amazon. You can check out that review (and warning) from him HERE

In addition, the VOD section on Amazon has a couple of people who HATE PhotoGRAPHIC and say its the most horrible thing they have ever seen! LOL - really now? Anyway, while we realize we can't satisfy everyone, such one sentence 'one star' hate, and not an actual review doesn't do much but make us laugh, and certainly doesn't hurt our sales. But we also don't try to hide it from our fans by only posting the better reviews! While the VOD version is 5min shorter than the DVD, with some toned down graphic kills and nudity... we doubt they would like either version :)

PhotoGRAPHIC now available on VOD

Our very violent and graphic 81min. horror/thriller PhotoGRAPHIC was released on DVD back in February, however we had to re-edit it for VOD since it was deemed to sexually and violently graphic. Now, a new 76min version is available AMAZON VOD. This edit is still a very effective R type rating with violence, gore and sexual content, but trimmed back a few minutes here and there for a total of 5min in this VOD version.

Director Tim Whitfield still likes the edited cut and is very happy with it. "I think this edit is still very effective." states Whitfield, "It's a great way for horror fans not familiar with us to rent it online for only a couple of dollars and decide if they want to own the DVD. If you like this version, you will LOVE the DVD and fans will get to see something that is stronger and has more footage."


Reviews and Interviews for our films!

We had a bunch of reviews on several of our projects lately. First up a cool news site call 'Search My Trash' which finds and highlights several obscure and bizzare indie films reviewed both Burlesque Massacre and PhotoGRAPHIC, as well as a very in depth interview with creator Tim Whitfield about all things Timberwolf. Check that out here:


Next up is two VIDEO reviews of a couple of Timberwolf and Midnight Hill short films. I hope this new website from AngelFreak takes off, because I really think the web is fast enough now to handle having reviews and news in video form which film goers can just click on and check out whats happening in the indie film world. Timberwolf and Ynot/Sin Pelo have been playing with this idea for a couple years now with Rydell Danzie's '30sec on set' and even a video news blog he and Tim Whitfield tested out in 2010/2011. The Timberwolf news blog itself wants to do more news blogs and reports on video as well when our studio set up is more solid.

Anyway, check out AngelFreak's review of Joe Patnaud's Friday The 13th: The Storm below:

Now, AngelFreak's review of Tim Whitfield's Forced Survival, shot back in 2005. Tim was very happy to see this review as it is still his favorite project he has ever shot. A very deep, very intense story with an amazing performance by Jillian Swanson. "Oh yea, this is still my favorite project ever." Tim admits, "Sure it has a few technical glitches, and I have improved how I shoot and edit since then, but this was the pinnacle of my New England work and the only thing I have ever shot that is everything I wanted it to be at that time. Kevin had the right mix of threat and awkward innocence to somehow make it work. Jillian had so much trust with me, and gave me everything she had without question. You believe her on screen 100% and I still consider one one of the best actresses I have ever worked with."

Forced Survival Review:



As most of you who follow our releases know, we tend to release our DVDs then about a few weeks to a month later it also releases on Video On Demand. This of coarse was the plan for our latest film "PhotogGRAPHIC"

However as it turns out, while the DVD has been released and is now available, apparently the film is too graphic for the VOD market. Nudity in general tends not to be an issue, but the very realistic violence and sexual content of PhotoGRAPHIC would probably garner as "NC-17" if submitted to the MPAA. Since the VOD releases are so easy for kids to just click on and order they tend not to allow anything more than an hard R, like Burlesque Massacre, which has nudity and violence, but of a more over the top and outrageous type. PhotoGRAPHIC's cold gritty realism, graphic sex and violence, rape and two particular very nasty kills are too intense for their guidelines. We can't say we agree, but who are we to say?

While we don't think kids should be watching it, you do need a credit card to order VOD (or access to a computer with a credit card saved on the ordering page) So, we think maybe as a parent you should maybe mind what your kids are doing on your computer.

Anyway, Timberwolf is now editing the 81min DVD down to 76min for the VOD release next month. While overall we do not like doing it, we are quite happy with the edit and we feel the film still plays effectively. However, we did want to let fans know that the VOD version would be a "R" rated equivalent and not the original unedited version on the DVD.


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.

"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.

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 - 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!
