Attention please! Three free films for us to buzz about on Indie today. Firstly, we bid a hale and hearty hello to Take Me to Your Leader, a movie-making comedy from director Keith Wright. Then we welcome back Exhibit A, that found-footage favourite of ours. And finally, it's a pleasure to announce that Pat Higgins' The Devil's Music is now available to our users in the US.
To say that Take Me to Your Leader is a mockumentary set within the film industry is perhaps not entirely accurate. For only the most generous-minded could ever say that would-be movie mogul Corbin West (played by Roger Bingham) is any more an industry insider than the rest of us.
And yet armed with a semi-willing crew and a semi-talented cast, with costumes knitted by his aunt and the financial muscle of the local double-glazing firm, with a steel will and several lorryloads of optimism, Corbin is determined that his sci-fi opus will power a path to the big screen, and carry its creator all the way to Hollywood. So what if Kurt Russell won't return his calls?
Take Me to Your Leader is available to view in the UK, US, Canada and Australia, and we will be bringing you more on the movie in the not-too distant future via an interview with director Keith Wright, who is also the brains behind new Yorkshire-set zombie flick Harold's Going Stiff.
It's always a delight to catch up with an old friend, so how nice that this particular Friday finds Exhibit A making its return to Indie. Not that there is much you would classify as 'nice' contained within the movie itself. Created by the director-producer team of Dom Rotheroe and Darren Bender, it's a disturbing domestic drama, told through the family video tapes uncovered by police in the wake of a shocking crime.
Brittany Ashworth and Bradley Cole give stand-out turns as the daughter and father whose shared story is revealed via those tapes, and the movie was both a prize-winner at the 2007 Raindance Film Festival and a nominee at the British Independent Film Awards in the same year. Exhibit A is available to Indie users based in the UK, US, Canada and Australia.
Rounding out the free film fiesta is another familiar presence here on Indie, namely Pat Higgins' The Devil's Music. A tale of rock 'n' roll retribution, the film follows the tabloid-baiting career of notorious, mysterious music sensation Erika Spawn. Previously available to view by site-users based in the UK and Australia, from today it can also be watched in full and for free by those in the US.
Where is Erika Spawn and does she have blood on her hands? The Devil's Music documents the strange story of the notorious shock-rocker whose rise to fame was marred by a series of violent incidents and terrifying rumours.Watch Movie
