RIDE UNITED - an motorcycle / moto-cross Epic from REDBULL - coming to Home Video in June!

Good evening HHSE Friends & Followers -

One of our hotter action-sports title is the epic adventure RIDE UNITED from Redbull and Four Oh Four Productions - coming to home video from HHSE this June.

Checkout the trailer:

Hannover House released Redbull's "ON ANY SUNDAY: THE NEXT CHAPTER" to over 230 theatres in 2015, grossing over $500,000 at the box office - and we later assisted with the placement of home videos into Walmart, Best Buy, Target, and many other key, retail accounts.

We're excited to have the opportunity to fulfill video orders directly now with "RIDE UNITED" and plan to earn the vote-of-confidence bestowed with this new release.




Correction on previous F.F.I. Blog

Greetings HHSE Friends & Followers - on March 17, HHSE reported on this blog that attorney George B. Morton had filed a motion to show satisfaction of the Fantastic Films balance from Hannover House (and prior affiliated entities).  In this blog, it was mentioned that an over-payment of $8,970.76 in Hannover's favor had occurred, and that counsel was seeking to request that the court order FFI to repay this over-payment sum to the company.  This filing was slated to have been made with the court on or about the date of that blog post.

However, the filing did not occur on the date planned.

An associate at the Morton Law Firm recognized that a mathematical error had been made in the calculation of interest on the exhibit, and that the motion (and exhibits) needed to be revised.

The actual amount of the over-payment, utilizing California statutes on post-judgment interest, is $17,533.35.  Accordingly, this is the amount that HHSE will be moving for refund.

... and of course, this proof-of-payment by HHSE completely negates and renders moot the "motion to compel" as asked for by the local collections agent.

Apologies for the posting error made in the prior blog.

The Vote of Confidence from the Production Community with HHSE

Greetings HHSE Friends & Followers - As we move into the final days before our major, corporate filings, we wanted to take this time to thank the many program suppliers and producers who have demonstrated their support in HHSE over the years - best evidenced in the repeat business (new titles) from the same licensors.  While we have had disputes in the past with some program suppliers - and either lost or simply discontinued the titles to avoid conflict - virtually every "notable" or commercially viable title lost has eventually come back to us later, after the producers realized the value of the HHSE / MEDALLION services and results.

Of the 18 new releases for HHSE in the past year, 12 of them were titles from licensors that the company had previously represented.  For the current year (ending 12-31-2017), of the titles that have been announced, six-out-of-ten are from pre-existing HHSE suppliers.

With respect to our catalog, below is a partial list of titles that were represented by Hannover House - then later "discontinued" or expired in term - then eventually came back again to HHSE for continued representation (listed alphabetically).

As the company grows in to bigger-budgeted, theatrical caliber films, the value of these ongoing relationships will enable HHSE-MEDALLION to continue its trajectory to becoming one of the Major Independent distributors.  We thank our producers, suppliers and shareholders for the opportunity to grow the business to a level that we can now emerge as a substantial entertainment and media company.

Unfortunately, not every prior licensor and every previously released title remains attractive for HHSE to consider with respect to future business.  For instance, Fantastic Films, Origin Studios and Northbank Entertainment are suppliers that we would likely not be responsive to for any new release submissions.  We have found that some suppliers cannot be satisfied - and as HHSE grows, it's imperative that we work only with experienced suppliers with realistic expectations and reasonable demands.

Having a repeat supply of quality, new release titles from the same producers has been a great blessing for HHSE, and a great testimony to the support our suppliers have in the company.

Don't bet against HHSE!

Greetings HHSE Friends and Followers. We're told by some longs that there is a filed lawsuit against HHSE / MEDALLION by the producers of UNION BOUND. As we have not been served and have not seen the lawsuit, it's not possible to fully respond.

However, the "high altitude" view of this topic is that an attempted legal action by UNION BOUND is frivolous AT WORST, or financially beneficial to us AT BEST.  You see, they never provided the required P&A to HHSE/MEDALLION, and instead left us stuck with covering over $200,000 of their bills. Their promised "specialty support" that they said would be provided by the "alt right" media never materialized - or if it did, it certainly did not deliver the $2,000 per screen results promised by Mike Davis, which promise was relayed to the major theatre chains as an inducement to provide theatre screens.

Despite HHSE signing the agreement, we never received back a countersigned copy - and we did not receive the $700,000 required for the release and specified in the agreement. If they are now deciding to acknowledge the existence of the agreement, one of our responses would be, "fine, where's the P&A money?"

The agreement also specifies that the court in the event of a dispute or legal action shall be the jurisdiction of the defendant - and we see no court filing made in Washington County, Arkansas.

As described in the past, some producers like to pick-and-choose certain items in a contract that fit their position while ignoring other key elements. The courts don't judge contracts that way, however. So we're certain that we will quickly prevail in having this absurd matter dismissed.

If you think we're wrong, remember that we also told shareholders on this blog that TCA was fully paid, FFI was moving to a satisfaction filing, and that the D.C. Photog case was ridiculous. If you want an accurate analysis of what is happening at HHSE, check HERE, don't check on stock-manipulator chat boards. We are legally obligated to express the truth as it exists at the time of posting. Are the chat board posters required to be truthful... or are they motivated to be deceptive?

On an unrelated note, this is an epic week for HHSE. Just watch!

Greetings from L.A. - it's a beautiful day for HHSE!

Good morning HHSE Friends & Followers - The L.A. Meetings this week went very well, and details will begin to be released in coordination with corporate filings and disclosures.

Meanwhile, some shareholders have asked us to comment on the favorable outcomes and closures of two litigation matters.

a).  With respect to FFI, the company has demonstrated full payment of the obligation, and is moving for a judicial declaration to discharge the matter.

b).  With respect to the litigation filed by the D.C. event photographer, as stated repeatedly in this blog and in disclosures, there was never any authorization granted for the filing of a copyright in the work-for-hire images taken at a HHSE Screening event.  The case has been formally dismissed by the court.

Cheers!  HHSE

The wait is over: Horror-Film Fans will see the official remake of BLOOD FEAST from Hannover House, in theatres April 28

Greetings HHSE Friends & Followers - Gore-meister director HERSCHELL GORDON LEWIS shocked his way into horror film legend with his 1963 gore classic, "BLOOD FEAST."  Now, more than 50-years later, producer EMSCH SCHNEIDER and director MARCEL WALZ have re-envisioned the film as bigger budget, European remake, shot in Paris last year.

Hannover House will release "BLOOD FEAST" to theatres in key markets across the USA beginning on Friday, April 28.  Most of the cast and principal production team will be on-hand for the USA Premiere screening on Tuesday, April 25 at the Chaplin Screening room at Raleigh Studios in Hollywood.  Home video and V.O.D. will follow in September.  Watch here for more news!

Blood Feast Robert Rusler Marcel Walz

It's been quite a while since we've heard anything about director Marcel Walz's remake of the 1963 H.G. Lewis cult classic BLOOD FEAST. Things have been pretty quiet on the BLOOD FEAST front ever since the remake's trailer was released online last June.  The silence has now been broken, as Walz shared some very good news with the folks over at Shock Till You Drop: a U.S. distribution deal has been secured and Medallion Releasing will be putting BLOOD FEAST out in theatres in the United States on April 28th.  The original film is known for being the first "splatter movie". The synopsis for Walz's take on the material goes like this: 
Fuad Ramses and his family have moved from the United States to France, where they run an American diner. Since business is not going too well, Fuad also works night shifts in a museum of ancient Egyptian culture. During these long lonely nights, he is repeatedly drawn to a statue representing the seductive ancient goddess ISHTAR. He becomes more and more allured by the goddess as she speaks to him in visions. Eventually he succumbs to her deadly charms. After this pivotal night, Fuad begins a new life, in which murder and cannibalism become his daily bread. He starts to prepare a ritual FEAST to honor his new mistress, a lavish affair dripping with BLOOD, organs, and intestines of human victims. As butchered bodies are heaped upon the Altar of Ishtar, Fuad slowly slips further into madness, until he is no more than the goddess’s puppet, who also thirsts for the blood of Fuad’s wife and daughter...
The remake stars Robert Rusler, Caroline Williams, Sophie Monk, and Sadie Katz.  I'm glad to hear some release news on this one, and am especially glad that the movie is coming out so soon. I'm looking forward to seeing what this modern BLOOD FEAST is like.
