Independent filmmaker, Joseph D. Peters, has officially joined latinhorror.com as a contributing writer. He will cover the horror scene in South and Central America via his LATIN HORROR column 'HORROR DOWN SOUTH.'
LATIN HORROR (latinhorror.com) was founded in early 2008 by filmmaker/curator Edwin Pagán and officially launched in the fall on Halloween as an online niche market website specializing in Latin-influenced horror, its documentation, and promotion as a distinct and valid genre.
Pagán remarks, “Joseph is no stranger to LATIN HORROR as he's been a major silent contributor to our revolution for the past two years, providing leads to hundreds of news stories and items of interest related to horror, and specifically genre developments taking place in the original Americas, including an overall look at some of the emerging horror talent coming out of Argentina last October”.
Joseph has recently relaunched his own website to reveal his new slate of seven feature films. His new website will also feature a store where future products from his upcoming feature films can be marketed and sold to a worldwide audience.
Joseph (josephdpeters.com) is also forging new alliances and relationships with European and Latin American production companies and sales agents in order to reach both US and international audiences with films that are both entertaining and enlightening, have style and substance, and shot in two versions, English and Spanish in order to penetrate all worldwide markets.
He is committed to creating, developing, and producing the highest level of feature films for the domestic and foreign markets around the world. Action, romance, drama, suspense, horror, and pure cinema will be his company’s trademarks as he shoots in countries such as Argentina, Colombia, Chile, and Uruguay.
The completed scripts are titled, “A Silence Within”, “Tango in the Dark”, “Tango Rendezvous”, “Shadow of the Werewolf”, “Hidden Tracks”, “Blood on the Streets”, and “Silent Storms”. The thrillers will be shot primarily in South America, in order to take advantage of the experienced local crews, top level equipment, European-style architecture and the favorable exchange rates.
All of the films are fully packaged with an award winning writer/director, director of photography, sound design, and popular cast. A well established production services team will be providing the infrastructure with local crew and logistics. The Latin American cast is confirmed and they are bilingual.
All of the feature films are intended to be submitted to the film festival circuit, theatrically released, television, cable and home entertainment.
