Why? Inkubus wants his one phone call to contact the single detective who almost caught him some thirteen years ago. They have unfinished business that will reopen a haunting unsolved murder.

2010 the story of Bobby.

A carefree pickpocket who tempts fate with the long arm of the law by lifting the badge of a New York City Detective.

While playing this dangerous game of cat &mouse, Bobby runs into an even bigger problem...Lucy.

Three months after a passionate one night stand, Lucy informs Bobby she is having his baby.

SUDDENLY the two different worlds of this young pickpocket collide, forcing him to reevaluate a lifetime of missteps.

In a city where he once got by as an invisible man, Bobby is now very much exposed.

With a highly motivated police detective waiting for him around every corner...Bobby must come to terms with his past, and his new life as a husband and a father.

As this "Midnight Cowboy" meets "Love with a Proper Stranger" style story unfolds...

Loosies becomes a deft combination of the classic love story and a morality tale for our generation.



All creatures evolve. From the tiniest microbe to the largest of animals, all creatures evolve to protect themselves from their predators.

Every year, Andrew Murphy and his father, Terry, are first to arrive at the Hunting Club. With the help of long time friends, they prepare the cabin for the start of deer hunting season. Deep in the woods, cut off from civilization, they spend a long weekend cleaning, rekindling old friendships, and hunting. Kelly, a local girl who helps the guys clean, arrives heavy with news that her grandmother is ill. When grandma disappears in the woods, it is quickly apparent that she is not sick from any ordinary virus.

Andrew's mom, Angela, dozens of miles away, hears news of widespread hysteria and violence in rural wooded areas throughout New England. When she cannot contact Andrew and Terry, she jumps in her car to warn her family.

On her way, Angela learns that an epidemic is erupting throughout the country. Passed from deer to human like Lime Disease, this new virus causes fever–induced rage, homicidal violence, animal-like dexterity, and hunger so insatiable it has led to cannibalism. Before Angela can arrive to warn them, the guys have already killed, and enjoyed their first venison of the season. As the infection turns them one by one, decisions have to be made, and old friends abandoned. You see, all creatures evolve to protect themselves from the predators who hunt them... Even us.

What if, in the real world, zombies weren't dead? Zombies were instead infected friends and family who were still human; who on some level understood the atrociousness of the unnatural acts they committed but were unable to stop. This is a reality Andrew and his father couldn't imagine a couple days ago. This is the horror that faces seven unsuspecting friends when the beauty of nature becomes...INFECTED



Since his professional debut on May 26, 1983, Vinny Paz has been one of boxing's most charismatic and exciting fighters. Very few fighters have had the same success in the ring, and at the box office, as Vinny.

He won five world titles at lightweight, junior middleweight, and super middleweight.

Paz won his first world title on June 7, 1987 with a 15 round decision over reigning IBF world lightweight champion Greg Haugen in an epic war in front of a sell-out crowd at the Providence Civic Center.

It would be four years before Vinny was once again a world champion. Thought of as a long shot, Vinny showed everyone that you should never count him out. He dominated the undefeated WBA world junior middleweight champion, Gilbert Dele, and stopped him in the 12th round.

Soon after the Dele fight Vinny would face his toughest challenge. He was involved in a serious automobile accident. Breaking two of his vertebras and dislocating another.

Pazienza was told that he would never walk again, never mind fight. He spent three months in a halo. Those doctors who told Vinny he would never fight obviously did not know the heart of a true champion. Against doctors orders, and without their knowledge, "The Pazmanian Devil" returned to the gym with the halo on. He began lifting weights, getting back the strength he lost.

Again proving you can never count him out he made a triumphant return to the ring just over a year later capping off an unbelievable recovery.


A heartfelt film about overcoming adversity in the likes of 'Rocky' and 'Rudy'.

-Glenn Ciano

Aaron Eckhart And Miles Teller Head To The Ring For Vinny Pazienza Biopic Bleed For This
By Nick Venable

Boy, it sure is great to be in the month of February, where movies like I, Frankenstein and That Awkward Moment are a part of our past. Granted, it's a very recent past, as both films are currently still in theaters, but we're grateful nonetheless. Stars from both of those movies will soon come together to create what will hopefully be a late fall release, as Aaron Eckhart and Miles Teller are attached to join Bleed for This, a boxing biopic that Martin Scorsese will oversee as executive producer. That's a good thing, right?
