Sins of Man II : Vengeance has been mared with delays in the editing process due to issues with the way scenes were shot and having to get them together as best as possible. We have had some issues with health in our ranks and working through those issues are more important them hitting any release date, I get e-mails every day asking about part two of the trilogy and I have to tell my fans to be patient the movie is coming along nicely. and also that I don't have a release datefor the movie.
I've said it a million times and will say it a million more (if I have to) the movie will come out when it's ready and not a day sooner, this is a smart way to do it if you really want the best movie that Wicked Carnival Productions can put out, I mean if you really want an incomplete movie without all the bells and whistles that you expect from a movie these days then we can release the incomplete movie tomorrow and then get slammed with negative comments, inbox messages e-mails etc. but I for one would liek to avoid all that and say that I want to release the BEST movie that we possibly can and make sure that fans get all the things the expect from a Wicked Carnival Productions movie and more so the movie will be released as soon as it's ready to go .
You will be able to rent and / or purchase a digital copy of Sins of Man II : Vengeance from ibleedindie.com just like you can rent and / or purchase Sins of Man : Rise of Mortis . If you live in the United States you can order a DVD copy of Sins of Man : Rise of Mortis from bullmoose.com as well .
We work hard to bring you horror movies to enjoy, comment on, review ect. but sometimes things happen that are more pressing then hitting a release date someone on our teams health is more important to us then hitting a release date and it will always be that way .
Indie film making is a TEAM EFFORT, the writer can't do it with out a production company, who can't do it without a director, who can't make a movie with out a cast, who can't shoot a movie without a cameraman etc. Evveryone involved with Wicked Carnival Productions is a member of our TEAM and when one team member has things happening behind the scenes it effects all of us .
Another thing I will never get tired of repeating is that none of this would be possible without CHRIS FYFE, I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed but I'm smart enough to know that with out him helping me from day one I wouldn't have been able to make Sins of Man : Rise of Mortis . Without his guidence and his skill set he brough to the project. I'm not insulting my talents, it's the simple truth .
Sure I wrote the screenplay for the movie and took over a major role after he had our first of many major problems with the project but Chris was the glue that kept it all together his decades in the entertainment business helped me in so many ways that I can't explain, he taught me to be a better writer, director and actor and I hope if he reads this he knows how much his help means to me, we have become friends during all of this and I love Chris like he's family sort of a father figure in many ways .
The same can be said with Sins of Man II : Vengeance Chris (and myself to a bigger degree this time around) was the driving force, he helped me direct the movie in a different way that I did Sins of Man : Rise of Mortis and that's why he is getting Co Director Credit on part II and is being given the role of director for Sins of Man III : Tribulation .
I will get back into the director chair when the time is right but I want to focus on my acting in Part three as I play a much larger role in the closing chapter of the Sins of Man trilogy . I'm working hard to get the script right without a dozen rewrites but I will write this script a hundred times if I have to in order to deliver the best script for my cast to make the best movie possible to bring to the Sins of Man fans and horror fans in general .
Another thing that I need to stress is that Sins of Man II : Vengeance required ALOT of CGI for blood and all that fun stuff due to some of our locations having a "no blood" rule that when we made the agreement to use the property we were unaware of the "No blood rule" until the day / night we decided to shoot there so after we learned that harsh lesson we have decided that all the blood and gore stuff will be done using practical effects when ever possible and the locations we select in the future will have to be blood friendly . We also had alot of studio work that went into the movie as well which was my fault as the writer I had way too much phone conversations in the script, I fixed this when I did the recent rewrite of Sins of Man III : Tribulation which is written with maybe another rewrite / edit left to go . I think fans will have alot of questions answered at the end of the trilogy that have been left open for you to think about through out the first two movies.
In closing I want the people who read this blog to understand that Wicked Carnival Productions wants to hit our release date on EVERY project but sometimes forces outside of our control take over the process and we have to push the date, it's never done just to screw with the fans . Sins of Man II : Vengeance will be released as soon as we get the movie right with all the scary music, CGI and Special FX right .
Stay Humble, Stay Hungry My Friends :)
