On a Road of Personal Discovery in First Trailer for 'In Search of Fellini'

"This is your life - what do you want to do?" Ambi Media Group and Spotted Cow Entertainment debuted an official trailer for an indie coming-of-age film called In Search of Fellini, which is indeed about a young woman's search for Fellini. Ksenia Solo stars as a shy small-town Ohio girl who discovers Federico Fellini's "delightfully bizarre films" (see IMDb) and sets off on a journey across Italy to find him. Along the way, she discovers herself and romance and tasty Italian candy and much more. The cast includes Maria Bello, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Beth Riesgraf, Andrea Osvárt, and David O'Donnell. This looks quite adorable, and cute, very much a film-lovers adventure, though it does seem a bit cliche with its story. Enjoy. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Taron Lexton's In Search of Fellini, direct from YouTube: In this coming-of-age adventure, Lucy (Ksenia Solo), a shy

Intruders Blu Ray Review: ‘Home Alone with added Saw traps’

Intruders tells the twisting and morally ambiguous story of Anna (Beth Riesgraf), a young agoraphobic who finds herself the victim of a home invasion. However, once the trio of intruders invade her family home Anna reveals herself to be much more than the expected victim as she turns the tables on her tormentors.

What starts out as a simple cat and mouse story as Anna hides from the intruders becomes something much more interesting. This is a film that zigs where so many others would just zag and the new take is welcome and refreshing. The choice to have Anna as something other than the expected victim is also highly appreciated. Without wishing to spoil too much of the events, Anna may suffer from agoraphobia, but she’s definitely made her home a castle. Imagine if Kevin McCallister grew up obsessed with fortifying his home and you’re along the

‘Intruders’ VOD Review

Stars: Beth Riesgraf, Martin Starr, Jack Kesy, Rory Culkin, Leticia Jimenez | Written by T.J. Cimfel, David White | Directed by Adam Schindler

Anna Rook is isolated from human contact in nearly every way, which is exactly how she likes it. Suffering from crippling agoraphobia and holed up in an old Victorian mansion on the outskirts of town, the people in Anna’s life can be counted on two fingers: her terminally-ill brother, Conrad, and the charismatic Meals-on-Wheels driver, Dan. But Anna’s home is about to be invaded by a trio of small-time criminals after a hidden stash of cash. She can’t bring herself to flee, but what the intruders don’t realise is that agoraphobia is the least of her psychoses.

Home invasion thrillers are ten-a-penny these days, as are single location horrors and, at first, it looks like Shut In was set to join those ranks. Which isn

Fly the Coop with Intruders: A Film Review

Tagline: "They Should Have Left Her Alone." Director: Adam Schindler. Writers: T.J. Cimfel and David White. Cast: Rory Culkin, Leticia Jimenez, Jack Kesy, Timothy T. McKinney, Joshua Mikel and Beth Riesgraf. Intruders is a new entry into the home invasion genre. Though, the film relies heavily on dramatic elements, too. From first time feature film director Adam Schindler, Intruders focuses on Anna's (Beth Riesgraf) dark history and a group of burglars. This material requires a serious tone and this causes the film to wade more into dramatic territory, compared to horror ones. Symbolism also makes an appearance, with Anna portrayed as a caged bird. Intruders is a captivating film, which will draw many viewers into its tense narrative. Anna is dealing with a dying brother. Conrad (Timothy T. McKinney) has been Anna's protector. Without him, she appears lost, almost like a little girl. Her tragic past, which is revealed late in the film,

‘Intruders’ (2015) Film Review

By Jesse Miller

MoreHorror.com

Intruders takes the basic horror-thriller premise we all know about a girl trapped in her house with psychopaths and turns it on its head. What if the girl couldn’t escape from the house because she suffered from agoraphobia? And what if the intruders were about to get more than they bargained for?

Beth Riesgraf is Anna, the girl in question. Riesgraf turns in an amazing performance, which is equal parts vulnerable victim and fierce warrior. There are so many layers to the performance that the material might, in other hands, feel contrived or over the top. This isn’t the case with Miss Riesgraf, who operates at such a level that every wandering emotion – the fear, the shock and ultimately the defiance to her captors – is believable. It’s a hell of a performance.

She’s backed up by a strong supporting cast that features Rory Culkin,

Intruders Invites You Down into the Basement: DVD Release Details

The taut thriller and horror feature Intruders, from director Adam Schindler, is slated for a DVD release. Momentum Pictures will handle the release and DVDs will be available this March. Intruders offers a bit of a twist, with one agoraphobic woman attacked by a group of burglars. But, Anna (Beth Riesgraf) is no stranger to violence. The film's trailer was released, recently and it is hosted below. The clip shows actors Rory Culkin, Jack Kesy, Joshua Mikel and others. As well, the film's official DVD artwork is hosted here, with more release details below. The film's story offers a change in protagonist and antagonist; the tables are quickly turned.

Knock Knock. Who’s There? Intruders

Home invasion films come in various flavors from the vicious (Kidnapped) to the fun (You’re Next), but the key to their success oftentimes comes down to the degree of intelligence displayed at both ends of the knife blade. Smart intruders are more of a threat, and smart protagonists make it all more interesting. Intruders (formerly Shut In), the newest entry in the sub-genre, knows this and delivers the goods with wit, brains, and intriguing story turns. It’s Home Alone for people who think breaking and entering should be punishable by death. Anna (Beth Riesgraf) hasn’t left her home in nearly a decade. Her father’s death ten years ago left her crippled with agoraphobia, and even stepping onto her front porch is enough to debilitate her. She’s kept busy though caring for her sick older brother, but when he finally succumbs she’s left unsure as to her next move. Her

Interview: Actress Beth Riesgraf Talks Intruders

  • DailyDead
Arriving in theaters and on VOD this Friday is Adam Schindler’s Intruders, which I first had the chance to check out during the 2015 Los Angeles Film Festival under the title Shut In. The story follows a young woman by the name of Anna (played by Beth Riesgraf) who gets taken hostage in her own home after a burglary goes awry. What her captors (Joshua Mikel, Martin Starr, Jack Kesy) don’t realize is that Anna isn’t necessarily the victim they think she is. Soon the tables get turned on the trio, resulting in a clever and deadly game of cat and mouse.

Daily Dead recently chatted with Riesgraf about her role in Intruders, the challenges that came along with the project, and how the movie changed her and all those involved with production.

Can you start off by discussing how you initially got involved with Intruders?

Intruders Review

It’s one thing to bill your housebound thriller as “You’re Next meets Panic Room,” but to deliver on such an excitable description is a whole other ballgame.

Adam Schindler’s Intruders (originally titled Shut In) is an early bright spot for horror fans in 2016, thanks to a screenplay penned by T.J. Cimfel and David White that twists and turns with hints of early Shyamalan. It certainly mixes the brutality of You’re Next with the tension of Panic Room, and does so while blending themes of Agoraphobia, trap-making, and good versus evil. Secrets are kept while blood is spilled, and a star is made out of the film’s damsel in (momentary) distress, Beth Riesgraf. Opening this Pandora’s Box is a complete joy, even with a typically doomed January release date!

Riesgraf stars as Anna, a distraught sister who just watched her brother die from pancreatic cancer.
