Sparks is getting re-released in a new anthology, “HitRECord Recollection, Volume 1.”

The handsome, 8 ¼-by-8¼-inch cloth-bound book — from New Video Group — contains two discs of digital entertainment, including 36 collaboratively made short-form live-action and animated films, music videos and “tiny stories.” They’ve been submitted by members of the artistic community, which claims 40,000-plus contributors.

The sketches and drawings can be wildly imaginative and intricately rendered, or delightfully childlike and amusing. In any case, nothing lasts long enough to overstay its welcome. By far, the longest piece, “Sparks,” clocks in at 23 minutes, but the presence of sexy Carla Gugino, Xander Berkely and ever-ready Eric Stoltz makes it seem shorter. As JOE, Gordon-Levitt adapted the screenplay from a short story by Elmore Leonard and directed it. — Movie City News

And Eric wasn’t at the Boston Film Festival, but Kate Connor and Andy Hirsch were. Production Live Online has posted an interview with them. Not the best audio ever, but I don’t think we’ve seen the poster yet:

Another film appearance: Elektra Luxx

DVD Talk
mentions that Eric makes an appearance in one of the deleted scenes of Elektra Luxx, an R-rated comedy by Sebastian Gutierrez, starring Carla Gugino and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, which has been released on DVD today (Amazon link).

“Deleted Scenes” (18:44) offer a lackluster interview between Bert and a dim-witted pornstar, a moment of aborted intimacy between two supporting characters, and follows jittery personalities played by Eric Stoltz and Lucy Punch as they negotiate their first three-way.

Haunted Summer gets a DVD release date

haunted summer dvd,eric stoltzHaunted Summer is finally getting released on DVD on June 14. From Dread Central:

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment’s manufacturing-on-demand program continues during the month of June with 29 films being released as part of MGM’s Limited Edition Collection.

Unfortunately only one qualifies as real horror, but there’s another that should appeal to genre fans so we’re including some info on both for your perusal. (…)

Next is the mash-up entitled Haunted Summer from 1988 – Romantic poets Lord Byron and Percy Bysshe Shelley, along with Shelley’s future wife, Mary, and her beautiful stepsister, Claire, travel blissfully through Switzerland one summer.

eric stoltz,shelley,haunted summerBoth women share Shelley’s bed, while the tortured Lord Byron flounders in a secret relationship with his physician. They experiment with opium, “free love”, and the nature of good and evil. The events form the foundation for Mary Shelley’s famous novel, FRANKENSTEIN.

This drama is part surreal, part historical – of lust and fantasy, of ecstasy and horror, of the inner strings of creativity. Stars Philip Anglim, Alice Krige, Eric Stoltz; directed by Ivan Passer.

Still not seeing a place to pre-order it, but the film now has its own page on, so their store is probably a safe bet.
