Anthony Stabley’s ‘Everlasting’ is Sexy, Dark, and Captivating! – Ryan T. Cusick, iHorror.com
Our lives are full of moments; one could say that moments are the foundation of life itself. We look forward to and wait for moments all day, every day. Well, the moment has finally come, Antony Stabley’s film Everlasting has made it onto VOD (Amazon). Anthony captures the deep love that a young couple, Jessie (Valentina De Angelis) and Matt (Adam David) have for each other. Stabley’s use of intertwined memories with real time clips paint the captivating but yet gloomy chemistry that the couple shares with each other. The characters in the film are flawed, but they are people that we walk amongst each day, people that we can all relate too.
It is the end of the school year, and Matt is given a project to create a video. Matt has the idea to make it about his lover Jessie, who is set to move out to Los Angeles to pursue her dreams of becoming a model. Matt has made a decision to drive from their hometown in Colorado to Los Angeles to ensure that Jesse arrives safely. During the trip, many changes ensue and each will use the camera to narrate the journey. When the two reach the land of opportunity, it is very obvious that Matt does not share the same excitement and enthusiasm for this new lifestyle that Jessie is going to make her own. After a brief stay, it is time for the two lovebirds to separate, and Matt travels back to Colorado. Not long after Matt leaves Jessie behind the tragic news is received, Jesse is dead. Matt’s world is torn to shreds as he feels responsible for leaving her there. Matt is now determined to seek vengeance on the individual(s) responsible for this heinous act.
Congratulations Mr. Stabley! Now everyone can be a part of Everlasting!

From The Press Release:
Super Grande Films and Indie Rights team up this Holiday Season to release Anthony Stabley’s crime thriller Everlasting via Amazon.
Everlasting won the Jury Award for Best Feature at the 17th Annual Nevermore Film Festival earlier this year. It was also Nominated Best Feature at the Crystal Palace International Film Festival in London and screened at Panic Fest alongside indie notables Baskin, Synchronicity and Southbound.
Everlasting follows a HS Student (Adam David) as he journeys solo from Colorado to L.A. in order to find the truth behind the murder of his girlfriend (Valentina de Angelis). To date, Everlasting has garnered numerous stellar reviews from media outlets in the U.S. and the UK.
Ari Drew (Dread Central) “Stabley’s film ultimately offers quite a bit more substance than first meets the eye – providing resonant drama and suspense that recalls haunting indie fare such as 2006’s The Dead Girl and Brick.”
Katie Young (Film Debate) “There are no easy answers in Everlasting, but it serves as a thought-provoking, stylish and haunting meditation on the underbelly of Tinseltown.”
Everlasting features a veteran supporting cast, which includes SAG Award Winner Elisabeth Rohm (American Hustle), Pat Healy (The Innkeepers), Michael Massee (Seven), Robert LaSardo (Nip / Tuck) and Bai Ling (The Crow). Songs by Crystal Castles, Cold Cave and L.A. Vampires accent a strong original score composed by Scott Gordon, David Levita of Criminal Minds fame.
Writer-Director Anthony Stabley initiated Everlasting in 2011 with the help of Producers Shannon Makhanian, Candi Guterres under the banner of Super Grande Films. “We are truly excited to collaborate with Indie Rights. They are very much in-sync with the evolving online markets. They also understand the importance of Social Media and the power it has to connect with particular audiences,” expressed Stabley.
Founded in 2007 by Linda Nelson and Michael Madison, Indie Rights works directly with filmmakers and gives them greater control of their distribution process. The company is based in Los Angeles where it reps a growing list of award winning films including American Songwriter, Fray and I Remember You.
Martin Unsworth (Starburst Magazine) “Drawing the viewer in with haunting, beautifully-shot visuals and a fittingly unnerving score, Stabley’s film is a rare breed; tragically engaging yet knife-edge terrifying and emotionally draining.”
