The Hybrids Family Movie Review & Giveaway!!

Los Angeles, CA – Vision Films has just released the perfect family film for Halloween, “The Hybrids Family,” on DVD & VOD. “The Hybrids Family” is a witty and unique comedy about a dysfunctional family of vampires and witches, suitable for children and teens, and fun for adults too!

Teenage siblings Blaz and Velana have a secret—they’re the world’s first vampire/witch hybrids! Their vampire father and witch mother have kept them hidden away for years, but when they fly the coup to start a new normal life, a supernatural family-filled adventure ensues.
“The Hybrids Family” stars Paul Sorvino (Goodfellas), Carolyn Hennesy (True Blood, Revenge), Mojean Aria (The Bronx Bull), Leanne Agmon (Blue Bloods) and Anne Leighton (Grimm) and was directed by Tony Randel (Beyond Belief, Hellbound: Hellraiser II). It was written by Tony Schweikle and produced by Peter HAS III Inc. and Anthony Entertainment
Blaz and Velana use their power of teleportation to move to Palm Beach, Florida to pursue their dreams. Young romance is on the cards for Blaz, who dreams of a filmmaking career, while Velana seeks the courage to sing in public.  Their irate parents are determined to put the kabbash on their plans—and to make matters worse, a scheming warlock and his henchmen are hot on the teens’ trail.  But with the ages-old Vampire vs. Witch battle still going strong, it looks like their paternal grandfather, The Count, and matriarch witch grandmother will have to make peace in order to help these spunky hybrids out of their otherworldly conundrum!
Recipient of the Dove Foundation seal of approval, “The Hybrids Family” is a fun and comedic story for the whole family this Halloween that offers a positive message about the importance of family connection and cross-cultural acceptance.
Director Tony Randel says: The script for The Hybrids Family came to me at the exact time I was learning to say goodbye to my children's childhood and send them off to college and their futures.  It's a melancholy, bittersweet moment for any parent but one that needs to be met gracefully as children leave their youth and embrace their hopeful futures.  This is the story I wanted to tell." 
Managing Director / CEO of Vision Films Lise Romanoff says: “Vampire, witches and warlocks—oh my!  Perfect for young viewers who want to experience a fantasy world that speaks to their own real-life challenges in a meaningful, entertaining way.  And perfect for parents looking for upbeat appropriate films to watch with the whole family.”
“The Hybrids Family” is available now!

One lucky reader will get their own copy!

Night Night Farm Book Review

About the book:
Night Night, FarmMoo moo, cows!
Baa baa, sheep!
When the sun sinks low down on the farm, the animals are all tuckered out from the day’s adventures. Join these adorable farm animals in pajamas as they say night night to the farm, to their mommies and daddies, and to God.
Your little ones will sleep until the rooster crows knowing that the God who made them loves them too.
Night night, farm!

This book is adorable and my three year old loves it! I have had to read it over and over to him and it is a good teaching tool and we are learning about God, so bringing that into a story makes it that much more better! the Farm Animals and saying goodnight make it a great bedtime story. My son likes making all the noises of the animals as we read it. I highly recommend it!
