They instead made their money by selling each frame of the film for a dollar netting them $135,000. Not bad for an independent. It’s certainly new and interesting … Continue reading

We have new details for a movie coming up called 388 Areletta Avenue :). I don’t understand the emoticon at the end of that title but am hoping the movie explains it. Otherwise it’s just stupid.
