Dermaphoria film trailer is finally out and it looks very promising. Take a look yourself and let us know what you think!
East End filmmaker Ross Clarke (Skid Row, EEFF 2010) heads West to America to make his stylish, atmospheric feature debut with Dermaphoria. A fragmented, involving plunge into a fractured psyche, Clarke’s film sees Eric Ashworth (Joseph Morgan, The Vampire Diaries) wake up in jail, accused of arson and incapable of piecing together the reasons for his being there. Recalling the mysterious, evocative name of Desiree (played by rising star Nicole Badaan), his past misdemeanours remain a mystery until, holed up in a low-rent motel, he discovers a strange new hallucinogen that allows him to recover his memories. Demystifying his clouded past, his former life as an illegal chemist becomes clearer; but as his tolerance for the drug increases, the world around him becomes more and more interchangeable with his imagination.
Also starring Ron Perlman (Hellboy), Walton Goggins (The Shield, Sons of Anarchy) and Kate Walsh (Grey’s Anatomy), Clarke’s debut film is a phenomenally realised, hallucinatory experience. Making atmospheric use of its New Orleans setting, Dermaphoria
alternately recalls Angel Heart, Memento and 2013′s Upstream Colour. It represents the arrival of a truly talented, distinctive filmmaker, an artistic ‘coming of age’ that couldn’t be a better fit for the East End Film Festival in its 13th year.

Thanks to Mr. Santos for the heads up!
Joseph Morgan says he hopes something changes inside Klaus once his baby is born. “If Klaus sees the baby or gets to hold the baby, I don’t know if it’ll make him go more in that [nurturing] direction or send him the other way. I can see him not being able to handle it,” he tells TV Guide. “With him becoming a father it’s interesting to see how that affects his bloodlust.”
Joseph has also commented on Klaus’ relationship with his siblings, which has changed a lot throughout the season: “[T]he family has become tighter and more important to him — both with his sister and brother and his potential “modern family.” They’re becoming that tight unit and they’ll have to work together to really keep a hold of the city and make things work.”
The changes did not only impact the character. The British actor admitted he likes The Original hybrid more the way he is now. “I would say he’s become more likable. I like him more, I’ve always liked him, but I feel like there’s more honor. His brother is rubbing off on him! Impending fatherhood has caused him to face his own demons. It’s really come full circle and that’s the season in a nutshell: him having to deal with his past in order to be able to deal with his future.”
What about the finale? What can we expect? E!Online found out that the tonight’s episode is “huge” and “it’s also very terrifying”. In Joseph’s words: “It’s a really frightening episode.” He promises, “I don’t think you’re going to be disappointed. We’re going to go out real strong.”
Are you ready for The Originals season finale? You better be, because it’s just hours away now!

As the baby’s due date draws near, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Elijah (Daniel Gillies) embark on a search for Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin), while Hayley herself is determined to do whatever it takes to keep her unborn baby safe and away from the witches. Francesca (guest star Peta Sargent) takes a meeting with Oliver (guest star Chase Coleman) and Jackson (guest star Nathan Parsons) to determine the future of the werewolves in New Orleans. In the aftermath of a surprising attack on Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) and his vampires at the compound, Davina (Danielle Campbell) and Cami (Leah Pipes) join resources to take down Klaus. Finally, in a desperate move to protect those most important to him, Klaus makes a heartbreaking decision.

Season two of The Originals is coming to our screens in Fall.
The line-up for the East End Film Festival (June 13-25) has been revealed. The 13th edition of the festival will open on Friday 13th June with the world premiere of Dermaphoria.
Dermaphoria follows an experimental chemist who wakes up in a New Orleans jail with amnesia, accused of arson and links to a drug-manufacturing ring. The cast includes Joseph Morgan, Ron Perlman, Walton Goggins, Anwan Glover and Kate Walsh.
Congratulations to the whole team.
Joseph Morgan describes The Originals finale as “absolutely action-packed and utterly heartbreaking and emotional.” Season one finale will begin with episode 21 titled The Battle of New Orleans airing on Tuesday, May 6, and conclude with episode 22, From a Cradle to a Grave, on May 13.
The British actor teases Zap2It readers saying, “It all comes to a head. It really opens the world up but also it’s fearless. They’ve never been afraid to kill characters that we like and they’ve never been afraid to let people do things that might make them unpopular, and both of those things will happen in the next two episodes.” Should we get worried?
The last two episodes will be very intense. “Each faction seems to be getting ready to make their move – the wolves to get their hands on the stones to make these rings so they can control their curse, and the witches are getting ready to try and sacrifice the child, and there’s uproar in the human community after Father Kieran died and Francesca is trying to take over, the vampires and Marcel are getting ready to make their move as we saw, and the Originals [are plotting],” Joseph explains.
“The whole season has been a pleasure, but the last few episodes especially are like a rocket ship and I think we’re going to finish very strong,” he says. “It’s utterly compelling you to watch next season.”
