Sarah's Room

Press release:

Arthouse Indie Horror 'Sarah's Room' Hits Amazon Prime

Sarah's Room, the feature debut of Scottish director Grant McPhee, is a dark and brooding study of one man's descent into paranoia. When Joe's wife played by Kitty Colquhoun, unexpectedly invites her best friend Sarah (played by Hanna Stanbridge) to live with them, Joe (played by Patrick O'Brien) becomes obsessed with her, convinced that she is not what she seems. 

With echoes of indie horror favourites Kill List and The Strange Color of Your Body's Tears, the film is beautifully shot by McPhee himself. Also a cinematographer, McPhee worked in the camera departments of films such as Under the Skin and Cloud Atlas before making the leap to directing with Sarah's Room.

Shot in just five days for a budget of £4000, Sarah's Room is the first step in McPhee's plan to reinvigorate the Scottish indie film scene from the ground up. His drive and passion has produced a truly unique film, drenched in atmosphere.

Oh, the mummy is a chic now. I have a bad feeling about this one. Is it just me or did anyone else start doing the Mission Impossible theme?

Peppermint 7 fixes, bugs, and bug fixes

Well, for those of you still using PeppermintOS, you may not be aware that Peppermint 7 has recently had a respin. In the "respin" Peppermint fixed several insures in it's newly released OS.  All in all, that sounds pretty good --- sadly the "respin" was so buggy that Peppermint had to take it down and -ahem- "fix it".
On the plus side, Peppermint has released an updated Peppermint-7-20161201. You can download it now --- if you dare.I've heard of chocolate-covered ants but not Peppermint bugs...
