    I’m thrilled to see 1991’s POPCORN finding a new pulse with a whole new generation of viewers. The film just recently screened as part of Los Angeles’s Beyond Fest, and Synapse has a snazzy Blu-ray of the movie coming in early 2015, which is awesome considering this film previously never made it past the original VHS release.

  • Doug & Ralph Brekan Team For Surreal Horror Film, “LIGHTHOUSE LANE”


    Ralph Brekan is a prolific artist who has had an extensive career in the art world, exploring themes of popular culture and mass consumerism. Drawing heavily from the pop art movement and commercial artists of the ’60s and ’70s, Brekan’s designs blends those aesthetics with color theories applied by the abstract expressionists. His fine art has been exhibited in three continents, seven countries and eleven cities, making Brekan a recognizable figure throughout the international art scene. Brekan has managed to fuse his extensive background in fine art to working professionally in props and art departments for motion pictures and theatre. Now, through his company, Brekan Arts International, this work has culminated into producing and editing his debut feature, LIGHTHOUSE LANE.
