Please help

Dan Ellis:
David Bones Herbert was shot and killed by police. The exact details are murky and suspicious, to say the least, so we are trying to raise awareness on as large a level as possible to help see to it that justice and truth be served. I am tirelessly trying to contact as many media outlets as possible so any help would be greatly appreciated. The horror/film community has been my second family for most of my life and when you're in a bad way it's family and friends you turn to and I'm in a bad way over this. If you read the comments on his FB page you'll see how many people this guy meant something to, what a good guy he was and how frustrated we all are....

Evidence of a Haunting

In Evidence of a Haunting, it seems like they are taking some cheap shots at the cable channel A&E's hit show Paranormal State- and it was hysterical. I am sure the real team on the show wouldn't but if they have no sense of humor they can piss off! I found myself getting a kick out of it.

If the film was not meant to be funny then I apologize- but if the Priest and the psychic are flirting up a storm and it's not even discreet while the medium Echo is a black haired tattooed all over goth chick that seemed to be molded after that weird chick Michelle Belanger on the show. 

The movie shows it's three most ferocious cases that they have dealt with and they are just identical to a lot of the episodes I have watched on Paranormal State- too bad there wasn't a character like Chip Coffey, I love that man! He seems like a genuine person to me but hey I could be wrong.

Evidence of a Haunting is a take it or leave it type of film- either you get into it and take it for what it is or you leave it alone by turning it the hell off. I watched it but not because I had to, I started to play the comparison game and see how much I could find that mirrored the show and there was plenty to choose from!

Chicago Overcoat

 Release date- April 19, 2011
Directed by- Brian Caunter
94 minutes 
In Brian Caunter's Chicago Overcoat Frank Vincent (Phil Leotardo from the Soprano's) plays an old aged hit man, Lou Marazano. Now he might just look like your average grandpop but this guy is totally bad to the bone. I mean c'mon, looking at him you know you'd think that you could take him- but you'd be surprised! But he also has a soft spot for his grandson Michael.
His daughter Angela is in a shitty relationship and gets her pop Lou to start watching her son while she works. It's endearing watching this ruthless killer with him, he stores values and smarts into the boy while telling him he needs to learn right from wrong. You'd never ever figure out he was a hit man unless the hit was put out on you!  
Ray Berkowski remembers when years ago the same type of hits were going on and the guys signature move was sending flowers to the widows of the husbands he killed. Ray is obsessed to the answer of why does the killer do this kind gesture after brutally shooting the men? I don't this man will ever be at peace with himself if he can't get a straight answer out of Lou.
This is isn't the Sopranos people so don't go in expecting that- even though it is a similar mood but it's a smooth uncomplicated watch that  9 outta 10 people will enjoy. Could you deal with being the daughter of a murder? Now everyone is out to get him and it doesn't look like he has a bright future a head of him.
Will he leave this world a legend or will he manage to surprise us all?
