#TheStayMovie awarded #BestInternationalFilm at #thethinginthebasementhorrorfest

Amazing news!

My folk horror film The Stay has been awarded Best International Film at The Thing in the Basement Horror Fest, USA.

What an honour!

Many thanks to Tyler Darkow & all at the Fest for supporting our work, on behalf of the cast & crew of The Stay 🎃

Edgar Allan Poe Gothic Filmmaker Award 2018 awarded to Frazer Lee for #TheStayMovie

Happy 2019!

And what a wonderful start to the New Year.

(Drumroll please…)

News just in that ZedFest Film Festival & Screenplay Competition in Hollywood USA has awarded the Edgar Allan Poe Gothic Filmmaker of the year award to yours truly for my film The Stay.

To quote the great poet, “I was never really insane except upon occasions when my heart was touched.”

My thanks to Festival Directors Wendy Medrano & Ed Stephens, and to their sponsors iPitch.tv for this very great honour.

As previously posted, The Stay won big at ZedFest 2018, where it was awarded the Outstanding Directing, Outstanding Screen Story & Outstanding Acting Performance Awards.

To be able to add the Edgar Allan Poe Gothic Filmmaker Award to that list of accolades is a wonderful surprise indeed.

As ever, a huge thank you to the cast & crew of The Stay and to all of our supporters.

Here’s to a fun & creative year ahead.

It’s already off to a great start!

News: Panic Button Distribution Deals

ImageNewsflash just in from Cannes 2012 that sales agent Kaleidoscope has closed distribution deals on several of their titles including horror/thriller Panic Button. To paraphrase:

Panic Button went to Germany (MIG), Japan (Interfilm), Korea (Focus & Company) and CIS (Big Movie)… Spencer Pollard, CEO of Kaleidoscope commented: “…We have many more deals in play currently and should be able to announce further deals shortly.”

More details at ScreenDaily and Hollywood Reporter.

Congrats to all at Movie Mogul Films, the cast and crew on this excellent news.

Panic Button is out now on DVD/Blu-ray, along with my movie novelization (based on the screenplay which I also co-wrote, and which held the #1 amazon.co.uk horror/thriller spot for over 2 months).
