Outrage movie- Press Release

“OUTRAGE” NAMED BEST SCIFI PICTURE OF THE YEAR

Recently honored at the 2009 Action on Film (AOF) International Film Festival in Pasadena, Calif.,, the newest movie from Spirit Films, LLC, “Outrage” was named Best SciFi Picture of the Year.

A white knuckle thriller about the law of attraction, fate changing decisions and facing the past, “Outrage” was produced and directed by Ace Cruz and executive producer Paul D’Agnese.

Starring the talented Michael Madsen (Sin City, Kill Bill, Reservoir Dogs) and Natasha Lyonne (American Pie, Slums of Beverly Hills), this highly-acclaimed film also received additional accolades from the AOF with nominations for Best Villain, Best Visual Effects and Best Action Sequence.

In addition to Madsen and Lyonne, “Outrage” also showcases the acting abilities of Pauly D, Ace Cruz, Katie Fountain, Derek Lee Nixon, John Dillion and the incomparable Michael Berryman.

The critically acclaimed Lyonne says she was delighted to work with Madsen on such a thought-provoking project.  With its unique content and approach, “Outrage” stands out among the slew of films on her resume.

“It is an interesting film that explores the power of the psyche and subconscious mind to determine or color our conditions, reality and experience,” sums up Lyonne.

“The producers have spent time to weave a story of danger, intrigue and choices,” says Berryman.  “The message of the film is most powerful.  The pure entertainment is solid and uncompromising.  It is a film you can watch many times and take something new from it each time.”

“Outrage” is a thrilling, exciting and invigorating movie with a great message,” says Madsen.

Making films for the past 12 years, Cruz has done seven movies.  His first was “Last Chance” which he wrote, directed, produced and co-starred with “Diifferent Strokes” actor Todd Bridges and Judy Ann Santos. It took him 4 years to finally finish. He made the movie for $10,000 and was able to sell it to the American Film Market and actually made a profit which is pretty unheard of.. Most first-time film makers never make a dime on their first movie, but Cruz did and it really launched his career.”

Since completing that first film, Cruz has made five more; “Urban Task Force”, which he also directed and starred in with well-known Filipina actress Sunshine Cruz. The success of that movie led to his third film “Psychotic” which he directed and starred in with Sam Jones (Flash Gordon), Joe Estevez (Martin Sheen’s brother), and Kathleen Kinmont (Renegades). Next he made “Fate” which starred Lee Majors (Six Million Dollar Man), Philip Michael Thomas (Miami Vice), and Michael Pare (Streets of Fire). His fifth film was “The Golem”, which he stars with Christopher Atkins’ (Blue Lagoon) daughter, Britney Bowman and now “Outrage”.

“Film making is my passion,” says Cruz.  One of my goals is to make films that have spiritual content to inspire people and help them to make better choices in their lives…..movies with a positive message that can help people become better beings. The lesson in “Outrage” is what you are inside is what you attract in life and I am hoping that not only do audiences immerse themselves in unbridled entertainment, but also take home the message.”

OUTRAGE PRESS RELEASE

“What you have in your heart you attract in life.”

Michael Madsen (Sin City, Kill Bill, Reservoir Dogs) and Natasha Lyonne (American Pie, Slums of Beverly Hills) star in Outrage, a white-knuckle thriller about the law of attraction, fate-changing decisions and facing the past.

Christine (Katie Fountain) is selling the palatial North Georgia mountain home willed to her by her father. And she’s closing this chapter of her life in style: a lavish weekend getaway with a group of close friends (Natasha Lyonne, Ace Cruz and Derek Lee Nixon). But the lodge was the site of a traumatic childhood incident Christine just can’t shake. The fear and outrage consume her. The vacation, she hopes, will be the source of healing.

Her plans, however, go awry as an ex-Marine sniper, Farragut (Michael Madsen), and his team of military outlaws crash a wave of terror upon Christine and company. A plan of deception soon unravels, and Christine and her friends escape into the woods with the bloodthirsty killers on their trail. With help from a simple handyman, Billy (Pauly D), and a mountain mystic, Obeah (Michael Berryman), Christine comes face-to-face with the fears that brought these horrors to life.

For Outrage, producer/director Ace Cruz and executive producer Paul D’Agnese bring the story itself to life with pulse-pounding intensity, drawing upon a cast of notable screen vets. Madsen, perhaps best known for his role as Mr. Blonde in Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs, calls the project “a thrilling, exciting and invigorating movie with a great message.”

The critically acclaimed Lyonne says she was delighted to work with Madsen on such a thought-provoking project. With its unique content and approach, Outrage stands out among the slew of films on her resume.

Outrage is an interesting film that explores the power of the psyche and subconscious mind to determine or color our conditions, reality and experience,” Lyonne says.

Moviegoers will no doubt recognize the incomparable Michael Berryman. Primarily known for bad guy roles (Rob Zombie’s The Devil’s Rejects, Wes Craven’s The Hills Have Eyes), Berryman switches gears in Outrage as the insightful Obeah.

“The producers have spent time to weave a story of danger, intrigue and choices,” says Berryman. “The message of the film is most powerful. The pure entertainment is solid and uncompromising. It’s a film you can watch many times and take something new from it.”

Cruz hopes audiences will not only immerse themselves in unbridled entertainment, but also take home the core message of Outrage.

“Filmmaking is a passion of mine that I use to show a good message to the world whenever I can fit it in my commercial movies,” says Cruz. “I decided to make the lesson of Outrage be what you are inside is what you attract in life.”  This is Cruz’s 6th film and he is now preparing to do his 7th film called “fight quest”.
