What the hell is 2GETHER 4EVER and why is Clive Barker associated with it?

Published at: Nov. 7, 2005, 5:30 a.m. CST

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with a press release I was sent today announcing a new horror film called 2GETHER 4EVER. Lotsa weird names associated with this thing... first off Lions Gate is distributing this movie in the US. Add on to that the writer of BLOOD FEAST 2, one of the goofiest gore flicks ever made, executive producer Clive Barker, producers Jacky Lee Morgan (WAITING, BULLY) and Harold Jay Knowles. Wait... what was that last one? Oh, shit... here we go again!

My thoughts? Well, the press release below says that Morgan and W. Boyd Ford are going to be doing this movie as a real horror movie, not the cheapo cheesefest that was BLOOD FEAST 2. Clive Barker putting his name on it tends to give me reason to believe the press release. Included was a poster used at this year's American Film Market to sell the foreign rights for the film...

My knee-jerk is they have to change that title. TOGETHER FOREVER, please. 2GETHER 4EVER sounds like a direct to video hip hop romantic comedy. And the poster... love the design, but it needs more atmosphere and not look so much like it came out of a computer. But then again, it's just a poster whipped up to sell it to China and Egypt and Africa and shit. I'm sure when the time comes we'll get a much more professional one-sheet. Those are my thoughts. Both the press release and the AFM poster are below. Tell us yours. Enjoy!





Queso Grande Productions proudly announces it has joined with Seraphim Films and Aint It Cool Productions to produce 2gether 4ever later this year. Written by W. Boyd Ford (Blood Feast 2: All U Can Eat), the film will be produced by Harry Knowles of Aint-It-Cool-News.com, Jacky Lee Morgan (Waiting, Bully, Love Liza) of Queso Grande Productions and Joe Daley and Anthony DiBlasi of Seraphim. Clive Barker (Hellraiser, Nightbreed) will executive produce. Lastly, Lions Gate Film will be handling the domestic distribution of 2gether 4ever.

New blood flows as Ford and Morgan join forces to direct the story of a teen girl and her relationship with high school, parents, a ghost and some ghastly goings-on. The duo previously teamed up on the campier side of horror to write and produce H. G. Lewis’s Blood Feast 2: All U Can Eat. With 2gether 4ever, Morgan and Ford turn their talents to exploring the darker side of the genre

Bestselling author Clive Barker has brought us numerous horrific projects including the iconic Hellraiser series. Seraphim Films is currently in pre production on Midnight Meat Train and post production on The Plague. Seraphim’s Midnight Picture Show will also be developing another sinister feature with Queso Grande entitled Scape-Goats based on the short story by Barker.

Knowles created Aint-It-Cool-News.com, long considered home to America’s cinephiles. Knowles is currently producing John Carter of Mars with Paramount Pictures and Ghost Town with Revolution Studios.

    Quint's dead right about the poster, didn't have the proper time to do non-CG poster for AFM, but we were aiming for something with the spirit of those fun 80's teen horror flicks - but more on that later.

    "China and Egypt and Africa and shit"

    by RuleBritannia

    WOW, what a classic yanKKK line. Poke a yanKKK and the real racist shit will flow, no matter how civilised and liberal he pretends to be. "Hey, I ain't no racist, I just likes to laff at them gooks and spics & all them faraway countries what ain't in AMERIkkkA!!" You redneKKK yanKKK bitches. And then you whine and cry when your Fuxnews tells you 80% of "Africa and shit" supports Osama and his plane stunts. By the way, without "China and shit" your fucking economy would fall like the cardhouse it is. What would you damn good ole boys do if you had to buy US-made crap in your malls and pay 200 times the price that you pay for 99% of merchandise sold there now and made for you in China by prisoners in camps? Where will your ship-sized cars (none of which is a real fucking car anyway, without an "automatic") go when you run out of "Iraqs and shit" to invade to keep your gas prices insanely low? Bloody cunts. At least keep yourselves to your yank paradise and stop infecting "Europes and shit" with your fat arses and your MacDonalds'. Oh -- and your shit films like this one. (no I don't care if Barker was born in London, he's a bona-fide yank today)

    Re: John-Locke

    by HEADGEEK

    Frankly - it was the whole thing. The structure, the tone, the basic theme and the potential I saw in Jacky & Boyd's script. These two guys have been working behind the scenes for a lot of years. Nicest guys in the world, big dreams, but absolutely egoless. Basically - the sort of people that you want to see make it. They asked for my help, invited me into their creative circle to see if I could help. That and... well I really want to make a horror film that hurts. Not just because of gore and on-screen violence, but because you got caught up in character, the story and the relationships. Plus - I wanted to go the Indie route on one of the films to learn and work in that world. Not because I'm fed up with studios. I'm actually really enjoying that process (so far) - but there's a speed and an excitement to low budget film that is viscerally exciting. That - and well - there's something that we've concocted in the film that - well I can't wait to sit at the back of the theater and watch an audience react to. If it goes the way we think, it could be amazing. Then again, it could just be ass. But there's a lot of folks that'll be doing this stuff for the right reasons. Just hope the fates smile with us along the way.

    re: dr_buggerlugs & others

    by HEADGEEK

    Buggerlugs -- Well, I agree with wanting a longer theatrical window for the films that truly are cinematic films. However, more disturbing to me is the practice of not theatrically releasing Director's Cuts the first time out. Personally, I get why so many want to wait fo the DVD, and want the DVD to come out sooner. If studios continue to put out the 'safe' versions of films, then release the superior product on DVD 2 months later. It's going to create an audience shrinkage. I also believe theaters need to remove 1/3rd of the seats in theaters on average and have ushers/bouncers in theaters to remove troublemakers and obnoxious audience members for the good of the audience. I also think they should have some one monitoring the performance of the film so if anything goes wrong it is attended to quickly (like at the Drafthouse) I think all theaters should offer "Baby Days" where parents with small children and babies can go see the films - but then ban babies and kids beneath a certain age - and should provide a babysitting service at the theater that is an equal ticket price to an adult. There's a ton of stuff that's causing audiences to seek out downloads and wait for DVDs. It isn't any one thing, but I think day and date DVD release isn't going to help theaters stay alive and I think ultimately it will severly kneecap the film industry if pursued to that radical of a level. ----- Who is up for John Carter? At this point - just about every man of the age to play a Civil War Vet of John's approximate age in the whole world preferably sounding a bit Virginian or capable to sound that way. ------ JOHN LOCKE - thank you. ------- BEEFY WHORE - I want a full size of the poster and I agree, it kicks SON OF THE MASK ass. But we're trying to kick better ass than that. Giggle. ANNE - sorry - not a vamp flick - tho.. well, we'll talk later.

    ANGRY ROBOT IN MY LOCKER!!! + A Question Answered

    by HEADGEEK

    Catnip --- Anyone that loves 80s Horror Movie Posters knows that the poster... it's gonna lie to you somehow, but reveal some truth somehow. Sometimes (and I'm hoping not in our case) the poster suggested a better film. But the posters were playful, fun and filled with little in-jokes regarding the film. Like the Locker number here, the number on the combination or... well other things. In particular - I love movie poster art - and love the number of films where the poster had a monster holding an unconscious woman - only to have no scene anywhere close to being like that in the film. Too much fun. While we didn't have a lot of time on this poster - a lot of thought and hurried effort went in to getting it ready quickly. --------- IRISH JOE --- Glad you're intrigued. I'm not sure how much of a production diary I'll have time for on 2GETHER 4EVER - I'll be on set everyday working with Boyd and Jacky. But I'd love to do it. Hopefully, I'll find the time. On the studio projects I'm doing - just depends - on JCOM we're talking about all sorts of fun Web activities. And on GHOST TOWN - I might have a better writer than I doing that.

    by wackynephews

    Sorry, Harry, I'm a huge critic of what you are trying to do on John Carter, mainly because I think you're looking at it like it's a tent pole movie when it's likely to be more of a 'two week wonder and make it's real money in video" kinda flick. On the other hand, beyond the god awful title, this seems to be the kind of flick that suits you and suits the kind of films that you love with a passion. Plus you are working with Lion's Gate whiich has a record of putting out decent flicks with new talent/producers.

And I'm positively glowing about all my projects - but I get what you're saying. And I completely don't take it badly. Right now, none of you really can see why or how I'm suited to produce films, and I'm fine with that. Every critical statement I take to heart and seriously. I don't just write this stuff off. But when folks see the first 4 films I am working on right now - I would like to think people will be tremendously surprised. ESPECIALLY by GHOST TOWN - that's my baby. My story. And it isn't what anyone expects. Lions Gate is a tremendous place to be working with on this film. Criticisms about SAW II aside - they have a 10 day gross of over $60 million on a 4 million dollar hard R rated horror film by a real new talent and not popping with stars. And with the horror films they are distributing next year - they're continuing to be a fantastic venue for Foreign and Domestic Horror that the big guys run screaming from. If we do our job right on this film, I can think of no better place to be.

    I love horror flicks, and teen slasher flicks are cool. I actually like the movie poster. For me it has a nostalgic 80's feel and anytime you have a finger writing something in blood, well, that could make for a good story. My one question (and you probably won't answer it), is this a scary slasher horror flick or more of a tonuge-in-cheek, campy slasher flick? Either way good luck!

However. the plan is that this will be a cinematically set film that when the flip comes will be, god willing, very scary horror. Trying some stuff I haven't seen in the genre. It's kinda why I'm giddy. Hope we can pull it off. Thanks for the luck, we'll need it.

Same as Moriarty can't modify something I post about one of his projects. And Drew and I will both seek revenge on Quint when he and Kraken make their horror novel adaptation next year. I've got stuff on Quint going back to when he was 15. He's screwed. Or rather was, and I've got the photos of the ram that did it. Though, Rav's Golden Fleece costume was very flaming that night. --- The poster was for AFM - the American Film Market, where films of all sorts get financing together based on pre-selling territories abroad.

    Could be good

    by Ribbons

    The 2gether 4ever title's not bad, it just depends on the presentation during the marketing. If it's perverse or ironic or whatever, people have to know that. I'm excited that Harry's excited, hope this turns out to be good. HEADGEEK - I guess some of this stuff you probably can't get into, but when you say that the tone is going to be different from most horror films you see today, can you elaborate on that any further?

  • Nov. 7, 2005, 12:39 p.m. CST

    Looks nifty. Are you going to be a severed head in this one too?

    by Durendal

    Heh. I've got a hunch we'll see the Knowles cameo in some form here. Just be sure we get some bare, bouncing titties....on the women! Just the women! ;)

    by FrodosBlueBalls

    Imagine all the crap any of Harry's movies will get if they suck. How do you think Vincent Gallo would respond if Ebert got off of his fat ass and made a movie and the movie truly sucked. Good luck to you Harry, but you just opened up a can of worms and if your movie sucks, then you might...just might have ruined any "cred" you had as a critic. Also...sorry for all the quotation marks. Yes I am that guy. Oh and hahaha...I knew that I knew who Thrall was.

    The Poster

    by LeckoManiac

    I personally LOVE that poster...takes me back to horror movies of old...I know this has been said already in the talkback...but i really do like it.

    a paperback cover of Stephen King's Christine. It got that old school feel to it too.

    Good for you Harry! keep the dream moving forward!

    by Manaqua

    I personally can't wait to see your name in credits. Especially Ghost Town. I've been reading the site so long (7-8 years+?), that its nice to see you make the transition. It like seeing an old friend hit it big. I'm pulling for ya big guy, but lets not go suckin each others dicks quite yet. heh. Good luck. M

    Books of Blood

    by Jack Burton

    Good luck Harry. It should be interesting, but that title has to go. So where is the long awaited Books of Blood? Is it done and awaiting release or what?

  • Nov. 7, 2005, 6:24 p.m. CST

    looks like a goosebumps book cover

    by Cthulhubacca J

    Whoa...This project sounds like a BIG DEAL it if it has such names as Harry Knowles and Clive Barker. I sure hope there's a PG13 rating so it doesn't alienate the industry's prime marketing demographic

    Unlike other talkbackers, the only thing I'm offended by is Quint's need to seperate Egypt from its continent, Africa ...

    titties and blood

    by ultragoregrind

    Harry- i expect some titties and blood within the first 5 min. we're talking pre-title card, ok? otherwise i'm walking out heh heh heh

  • Nov. 7, 2005, 9:20 p.m. CST

    there will be titties (spoiler alert)

    by LeckoManiac

    Harry's man-titties will make a cameo... and the sight of them will cause the town's people to go crazy...a bloodbath will ensue...and there will be a locker involved somehow...

    Midnight Meat Train

    by Neosamurai85

    Oh... hell... yeah... Silent Hill stole from the best... and I was more than delighted with SH4's use of Meat Trainish imagery. That short story is easily one of my all time favorite things Clive ever wrote... would have loved to have seen it in Miike's hands. If someone twisted enough brought that to the screen... man would it kick ass. Peace.

    Why Harold Jay Knowles, instead of just Harry Knowles?

    Just wondering. Good luck with the movie.

    Re: Ribbons & others...

    by HEADGEEK

    Ribbons - Don't really want to go into it at this juncture. Tonally - there's some very fun and complicated things going on here. Would I use the word, "Perverse" to describe this? Honestly, no. But then, in answering your question of morality, you've just asked me if I think it is Perverse... Anways... ------ My Cameo. I really don't think I'll be appearing in this film, I just can't see that I fit in the universe of the story. ------ MANAQUA - yeah, I'm dying to share more of GHOST TOWN - but all in good time. --------- FRODOBLUEBALLS -- not really sure... I mean - Roger Ebert's explorations cinematically involved big breasted women and clunky garbage men. If mainstream America ever really saw his films - would they trust him on family films or just about anything. However, personally I love his work with Russ Meyer. For many though it is a non-issue. How will I be judged based on this movie? Frankly, on this one I'm working to help bring Jacky's vision forward. The film where I should be judged is GHOST TOWN. Story came from my brain. Of all my projects, it is the most purely me project. I would be proud as hell to be judged by the work on that project thus far.

    That's Andrew & Eric's way of giving me a jab. Name's Harry, on everything from Social Security to Birth Certificate to Credit Cards. Harold is an old ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK joke, "Call me Brain" - but that's ok - like I said - Quint will enjoy his front row corner wooden folding chair seat at BNAT.

    Re: HowUDoinChewbaca

    by HEADGEEK

    They screened an early cut to me and asked for my notes on the ending. I came up with what essentially was a "brief" climax that I felt would have raised the notch significantly... in much the way that Ripley going after Newt, then the Queen going after Ripley raised the notch in ALIENS (though not that!) However, they were not really able to shift their date, which would be required for the reshoot to be done correctly... and had reached "the end" of the budget with that film. So I gave them some editing notes and brief ideas - but really Todd Garner was who I heard came up with a lot of that ending, not me. I just chimed in with advice when I had it.

  • Nov. 9, 2005, 9:48 a.m. CST

    Come on it's obvious who Thrall is

    by seppukudkurosawa

    the ghost of Don Simpson (permanently on the toilet in action movie producer heaven), who, resentful at not having been able to use his producing talents on armaggedon, has come back to haunt anyone who liked the film. And with Harry being the only person who did, he gets the short end of the stick.
