HAUNTED WINE COUNTRY WITH Q&A FROM PRODUCER & DIRECTOR TOM WYRSCH

“HAUNTED WINE COUNTRY” AN HISTORICAL JOURNEY ACROSS NORTHERN CALIFORNIA’S WINE COUNTRY TO HAUNTED LOCATIONS. TRAVEL ACROSS NAPA, SONOMA AND MENDOCINO COUNTIES. With locations in Sebastopol, Jenner, Fort Ross & Mendocino.

For more than a century, the natural beauty of Northern California's wine country has drawn people from across the globe. But among the hardworking residents who made their homes there more than a century ago lurked a seedy and dangerous element: gamblers, thieves, prostitutes, murderers -- even pirates. Death or ruin traveled with them. And long after committing their untoward deeds, the spirits of many remain there roaming the hillsides, frightening current residents and turning this otherwise serene area into Haunted Wine Country. Paranormal experts, authors, historians, ghost hunters and gifted psychics recount the area's ghostly tales and describe their personal experiences.

 Laurie Jacobson - Hollywood Haunted

Produced & Directed By Tom Wyrsch (Haunted Sonoma County, Remembering Playland at the Beach, Sutros: The Palace at Lands End). 82 Minutes  2017

Take a trip into the Rio hanger for Airplane! (1980). Ted Striker just got dumped by his long-time girlfriend Elaine Dickinson, who works as a stewardess at Trans American Airlines.

Jekyll and Hyde-Silent Film with musical performance by the Invincible Czars

Jekyll and Hyde-Silent Film with musical performance by the Invincible Czars

Audiences all over the US have eagerly gathered in art house cinemas to experience The Invincible Czars’ intricately crafted and precisely performed silent film soundtracks. The band aims to give modern day movie-goers a musical context through which they can better appreciate the importance and artistry of silent era films. Their catalog includes horror, fantasy and westerns movies. They are currently touring the US and Canada with Jekyll and Hyde.

 

 The Invincible Czars make quirky, bold music for lovers of everything in the “other” category. Inspired by comics, sci-fi, fantasy & horror stories, cartoons, comedians, and classical composers, they’re eclectic, dynamic and always have a cinematic flair.  In 1998, guitarist Josh Robins started recording musical themes into his four-track recorder that sounded more like bits of movie scores than indie rock songs. He needed more than the usual guitar, bass, and drums to realize these budding rock symphonies; he taught himself to read music, began writing pieces for instruments he couldn’t play, and eventually assembled the first line-up of The Invincible Czars.  Since those early days, the Invincible Czars have evolved from a novel act in Austin’s Red River scene to a reverse classical-crossover powerhouse playing all over the US, blending influences as disparate as Tchaikovsky and Van Halen.  Whether they’re playing a rock show in a club, a live silent film soundtrack in a theater, or a holiday event in a park, The Invincible Czars are always entertaining and out of the ordinary. Their musicianship is complemented with humor, magic tricks, fun and wacky wardrobe, and occasional minor acrobatics.
