As some of you may know, Defacto Film Reviews founder and chief critic, Robert Joseph Butler has been working tirelessly over the past year on his first feature, Love Immortal.

Starring Aphrodite Nikolovski (The Girl on the Mat, Betrayed) and Richard Tyson (Kindergarten Cop, Black Hawk Down), Love Immortal follows three generations of vampire women that find their lives put into jeopardy by their environmental and economic surroundings. Rob has crafted a film that effectively blends both arthouse and genre cinema while forging its own unique path. It’s bloody, emotional, nuanced, and full of passion in front of and behind the camera.

With an immense supporting cast featuring Jordan Trovillion (Gotti, The Old Man & the Gun), Julie Kline (Mimesis Nosferatu, The 404 Diner), Erica Hoveland (Before I Wake, Eternal Code) and Tevis R. Marcum (Stone, Dog Eat Dog), Love Immortal is a compelling experience that is currently up for distribution. However, you won’t have to wait very long to see it. Immortal begins its run on the festival circuit starting Friday, July 19th at the 9th annual Anthem Film Festival in Las Vegas, Nevada. For more information on that screening, go to

It will later play at the International Indie Gathering on Saturday, August 9th in Mentor, Ohio. Visit for more information on that screening.
