For 19-year-old Jay, the fall should be about school, boys and weekends at the lake. Yet, after a seemingly innocent sexual encounter she suddenly finds herself tormented by nightmarish visions; she can’t shake the sensation … Read more

Gillian Greene’s ‘Murder of a Cat’ Opens in Select Theaters December 5

MurderofaCat(PCM) Gravitas Ventures recently acquired director Gillian Greene’s independent thriller/comedy Murder of a Cat, setting the film for a limited release in select theaters starting December 5, 2014.

Murder of a Cat marks Gillian Greene’s directorial debut. From the script by New Girl writers Robert Snow’s and Christian Magalhars’, which appeared in 2010’s Black List, Murder of a Cat stars Fran Kranz as Clinton Moisey, a man investigating the murder of his beloved pet cat.

Clinton Moisey is an iconoclastic, artisan action-figure designer who still lives in his mom’s basement, and is, by the standards of the world, a full-blown loser. But Clinton doesn’t have time to care about what others think of him; he is too busy running a yard sale where he promotes his hardboiled detective toy line with his pet cat and best friend, “Mouser.”

Katie Holmes is a Righteous Killer in ‘Miss Meadows’

MissMeadows(PCM) Karen Leigh Hopkins’ Miss Meadows, a dark comedy-thriller starring Katie Holmes in the titular role, follows a saccharine substitute teacher who gets her kicks from killing criminals on the side.

The directorial debut of screenwriter-actress Karen Leigh Hopkins (Stepmom, Because I Said So) received mixed reviews after its premiere at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival. The film’s main flaws seem to be it’s jarring shifts in tone and unjustifiably outlandish plot.

Frank Scheck, in his review of Miss Meadows for The Hollywood Reporter, called the film “off-puttingly bizarre,” saying, “unlike its deadly, gun-toting heroine, this darkly satirical comedy misfires.”

Scheck further explains poor rating of the dark comedy saying, “Holmes, using her doe-eyed adorableness to provocative effect, delivers a fine, startlingly off-kilter performance, and Dale is highly appealing as the gentle, accordion-playing sheriff. But director-screenwriter Hopkins is unsuccessful in navigating the absurd storyline’s jarring tonal shifts.”
