"Very soon" is what he said in the mention.

Yeah, saw that. See, for me, when they publicly say "very soon," there's also an email telling me the basic timeline so I'm ready to blast it. Which, I suppose, is impolitic for you to leak, anyway.

Dread Central mentions COUGARS and says the effects recall The Howling. I'll take that any day.

Well... For Wikileaks, I think we could find some things on you without too much work.

Some pre-festival love from eFilmCritic:

http://www.efilmcritic.com/feature.php?feature=3383

Quote
'Now That You Are Dead' unfortunately suffers from the same issue that Lonnie Martin's short film, 'Cougars,' has in that its title is the very essence of a spoiler. One by name and the other by title design. Certainly not to dismiss 'Cougars' in any way as it is definitely one of the shorts you should check out (even if you have to leave '[Rec] 3' early to catch it.) It's quite fun and star Rebecca Hausman is definitely somebody that filmmakers of any genre will want in their film. It's just a shame that the twist could have been preserved as easily as taking the plural out of the title.

While Cougars has already started to make strides into becoming a full-blown feature (think "'Cat People' by way of 'An American Werewolf in London'" according to Martin), Patrick Rea has hopes that his short, Time's Up Eve, will make that leap too.

New review from Film Bizarro.

Quote
It's hard to judge "Cougars" too hard, as it does everything "as it should". It's not wild and out-there, but it's also not doing anything wrong. It's a simple, classic and fun story that I could've seen a full feature of. It's somewhere between "Sleepwalkers" and "Ginger Snaps", and that's two films I enjoy. It's a fine mix of drama, comedy and horror, and I am very open to see more from the director Lonnie Martin because he seems to understand what he is making, and that's something I find important.

Another review. This one from Dark River Press.

Quote
The film is solidly written and directed by Martin.  He was able to create a fun, if not predictable creature flick with a lot of heart.   I loved the old school make-up FX techniques used, especially the bladder effects which reminded me a lot of The Howling and The Beast Within.
