I'm cranking through the DVD extras with Chris Hickey and Scott McCune, a couple of hard driving, young turk editors. In digging through the footage, looking for lost gems in the 50+ hours we shot, I discovered footage and outtakes from our third shoot. I had almost forgotten that we went back to the (haunted) hotel a third time.

This is all footage that was shot after our film festival screenings in Vegas and Chicago. So, the final cut of the movie has two full length scenes (and many extra little bits of footage) that have never been seen before. Very twisted moments that reveal the depth of our vampire hunter's religious zealotry. Fun stuff.

Denise & Cassandra Vamp It Up!

Extra Special Extras

What's new? Well, we're continuing to work hard to make the DVD as special as possible. Here's what's in the works:

DOC FEATURETTES. There will be several documentary-style featurettes on different aspects of the filmmaking. 4-5 minute featurettes with titles like "Hunter & Prey" and "Femme Muscle." We're editing those as I'm writing this to you. They'll feature a mix of interviews with the filmmakers and stars, clips from the movie, plus never before seen footage such as outtakes, behind the scenes, and even some footage from an upcoming documentary.

BEHIND THE SCENES. Another featurette will be called "Fuck-ups, Fucking Off, & What the Fuck?" This is a loose collection of outtakes and behind the scenes. Just for fun.

GALLERIES. There will also be photo galleries of each of the hot and hard women from the film. Very slick, pinup type photography as well as stills from the movie. This one's going to be sweet.

COMMENTARY. A director's commentary track is in the works as well, from yours truly. I'll try not to fuck it up.

PLUS MORE. In addition, there are a couple of other surprises we're considering. I can't tell you about those just yet. Bottom line is that we are committed to making the extras as special as the movie itself.

WHEN'S IT COMING OUT? Look for a release later in the year. We're lining everything up for a self-distribution of the movie and it's going to take a little time to lay the groundwork for distribution channels and all the accompanying marketing. We've never done this before, so please be a little patient with us. We want to do it right. We'll announce dates for the release when it draws near. In the meantime, you can count on updates here -- at least several a month. We're riding this train to its final destination and there's no getting off.
