TAMPA FL - What could best be described as a roundhouse kick of rock to the face, Red Calling’s “Taker of Breath” is aptly titled. Drawing on the melodically-centered and symphonic qualities of European rock groups like Lacuna Coil- and then throwing in some good ole metal energy reminiscent of Korn- the Tampa, Florida-based group deliver a sound that is as aggressive as it is haunting and undeniably catchy.

CREATIVE LOAFING - Thomas Crane knew he wanted to direct a narrative film. After years of directing music videos and doing video production, the singer for Marion Crane, called on friends and associated to help his company, killDevil Films, develop and shoot Halloween Party, a 38-minute short horror film, which was inspired by the likes of Psycho and The Shining.
 
The end result, which intersperses color and black and white, is rich in atmosphere, dark in tone, and benefits substantially from its leading man, Sean Michael Gloria, who gained national exposure earlier this year in Followers, a low-budget found-footage feature shot in Pinellas County.

HORROR ASYLUM - There are clearly echoes of "Psycho" peppered throughout the movie. The performances are solid for such a low-budget production and Gloria himself deserves a lot of credit for managing to make his character both likeable yet deceivingly enigmatic. HALLOWEEN PARTY is accompanied by a surprisingly effective score, composed neatly by Frederic Bernard, and it gives the whole experience a real retro feel, dinking in and out of almost recognisable horror-esque themes and styles yet managing to expertly keep the right level of tension in place where necessary.

INDIE SHORTS MAG - Preparing the feast, getting dressed up and trick-or-treating may excite any person but Thomas Crane’s Ben. As the director, editor and writer of the film, Crane gives such a twist to an as-it-is spooky celebration, that perhaps Halloween will never feel the same. "Halloween Party" engages the audience in not only delving into the origins of the festival but also into their own psyche to find if there’s a Ben hiding in there…

DOWNSOUTH - First, I'd like to say I thought this was extremely well shot and edited coming from an independent filmmaker. And the story is top notch with a few twists and turns...Overall, I really enjoyed this film and story. I would really love to see what Crane and killDevil Films has in store for us next, hopefully a full-length movie in the near future.
