Sleepy Hollow Premieres in the UK to Record Ratings

Last night's premiere episode of Sleepy Hollow gave the Universal channel its highest ratings since 2005, and was their highest rated premiere ever, according to Broadcastnow.co.uk

The show also got some great reviews, with the Metro giving the show 4 out of 5 stars GQ UK  had this to say:

With it's ludicrous premise, you're either in for a good ride or a long trip to snoresville - thankfully we're gifted with the former. Sleepy Hollow strikes the right balance with believable special effects (significantly more impressive than SHIELD) and a strong enough cast that can slip in and out of the serious and light-hearted moments. With Orlando Jones (Evolution) and John Cho (Star Trek) in the supporting cast, there's a lot of potential for a fun, knowing show that television has been missing for a long time.

'Dead Cat' Hits the Film Festivals

The multi-award winning independent film Dead Cat continues to wow festival audiences around the world.  It recently screened in Mexico at the Oaxaca FilmFest and in the UK at the Cambridge Film Festival. Today, the film was seen at the Southhampton International Film Festival in the UK, and will be screened at 2:30pm at the Indie Spirit Film Festival in Colorado Springs in the US. 

In a few weeks, the film will be back in the States as part of the Naples International Film Festival, in Florida.  No schedule has been released yet, but the festival runs November 7th-10thCheck their website here, if you are interested in attending.

A really lovely review of the film was posted, in which they called Dead Cat "one of the funniest films in a long time." 

Whilst the love story between Michael and Kristen is a touching one which is full of intrigue about the past as well as hope for the future, it is surprisingly the relationship between Michael and his mates (Tim, Marco & Sam played beautifully by Tom Mison, Johnny Palmiero and Sam Bern) that is the real heart of the film. By using a group of real friends as the central performers, Stefan Georgiu and his co writer Sam Bern (who also stars) have a great foundation of naturally relaxed friendship on top of which to build their touching and hilarious script, allowing them to really push the sense of a group of “men’s men” who for all their bravado and blokey banter, have a friendship run through with a real love and caring for each other that only the oldest of friendships can have.

You can also listen to a glowing audio review of the film here.

I don't think I've read one bad review of this film, and am waiting very impatiently for some smart distributor to snatch it up and bring it to the wider audience it deserves!
