Velvet Candy Entertainment had a great time at the Sirius Satellite Radio Outfest Party on Tuesday night. Hosted by Frank DeCaro and Doria Biddle of (what else?) "The Frank DeCaro Show" - the party was a who's who of who's fabulous at Outfest 07. Other guests attending include actors Sam Pancake (whom Doug has worked with on a variety of TV and film projects), the brilliant Jane Lynch, Suzanne Westenhoefer and Jason Stuart. Also there were writers and pop-culture experts Jim Colucci ("The Q Guide to the Golden Girls") and the ever-sexy Rick Andreoli ("Mondo Homo").

On Wednesday morning, Doug and writer/director Sean Abley were guests on the above mentioned "Frank DeCaro Show" - spending much of the half hour discussing SOCKET as well as lesbian prison films, Chicago's Manhole gay bar, very special episodes of "Designing Women" and even "The Funky Phantom"! It was a great time and we hope to do more publicity like this in the coming weeks & months!

SOCKET: Taking Philly By Storm!

This weekend was the WORLD PREMIERE screening of SOCKET at the 2007 Philadelphia International Gay & Lesbian Film Festival. We are pleased to report that after two near-sold out screenings, the reviews have been coming in from festival attendees and it's all been overewhelmingly positive!

Here's what the fine folks in Philly have been saying...

"Five Stars - GREAT ACTING and an intriguing premise make this ambitious film well worth watching. Would love to see what this talented group could do with a bigger budget to support the vision. Very good use of comedy to offset the intensity of the main plot."

"Five Stars - Great concept. LOVED the actors...super supporting cast. A real thriller with elements of camp and eroticism. Very clever...definitely an enjoyable feature. A great debut for Abley."

"Five Stars - Sexy and intense...check it out if you're ready for something different"

"Five Stars!!! WOW! This movie totally rocked my world."

"Five Stars!!! Something different. Thank you."

"Five Stars!!! Fucking out there...kind of like Cronenberg...music was good too"

"Five Stars!!! ...definitely something we haven't seen before! "

"Four Stars...Very intense, moody, but with surprising wit. Its one of those that stays with you long after the movie is over. It's not really like anything out there. Check it out! Oh, and the guys are REALLY hot!!!"

"Four Stars!!! Verrry interesting concept. It really did "bring good things to life". "

"...plenty of sex and nudity, points go for keeping it peripheral to the plot"

"Told with panache, sex and nudity... fiery-hot erotic thriller"

"This is one kind of queer horror tale we've never seen before!"

"...shrewd editing looks smart for a low-budget film."

"Rasool J'Han and Allie Rivenbark... provide the laughs as a couple of lesbian friends."

"Montgomery embraces his role, projecting the complexities of his character..."

more to come...
