Group Focuses On Stronger Community To Help Newtown Heal
Huffington Post - about 4 years
NEWTOWN, Conn. -- Ian and Nicole Hockley lived across the street from Adam Lanza, but they never got to know him or his family before the 20-year-old gunman killed their young son and 25 other people inside Sandy Hook Elementary School. In the weeks since the Dec. 14 shooting in Newtown, the couple said they have wondered whether more community involvement in Lanza's life might have prevented the bloodshed. "If I had reached out to them, would things have been different? I don't know," Nicole Hockley said. "I do have a regret there, without a doubt. But would it have made a difference? I will never know." Coming together has been a popular theme at vigils and concerts held in tribute to the 26 people killed inside the schoolhouse. For some of the families who lost loved ones, a renewed focus on community would be a silver lining to the tragedy. The Hockleys are among the families working with Sandy Hook Promise, a local grass-roots group dedicated to the ide ...

Jess Franco's Countess Perverse Gets a New Transfer and an Official DVD Release
Dread Central - almost 5 years
Back in 1973 Jess Franco unleashed Countess Perverse, which has a little something for everyone via its human hunting ground packed with sex, sleaze, and outrageous behavior. Thanks to Mondo Macabro you can nab the official director’s cut on June 12th. In the Countess Perverse, aka La comtesse perverse (1973, France, 78 min.), a pair of decadent and debauched aristocrats turns their private island into a human hunting ground where they can stalk their naked prey. As each victim is murdered, the carcass is then cooked and fed to their guests; simply delicious! What the unsuspecting visitors don't realize is that they will soon become the next evening’s meal, eventually fighting for their lives in a shocking and flesh-baring cat-and-mouse game. With suave actor Howard Vernon (Seven Women for Satan) and the stunningly sexy Alice Arno (Justine de Sade), Countess Perverse co-stars Kali Hansa, Lina Romay, Tania Busselier, and Robert Woods, delivering Jess Franco-sized, wicked entertainm ...
