About the Dark Realm
“Dark Realm” tells the story of a Master Illusionist inspired by the Occult who may actually be in league with evil forces to assure
his success. His deadly secret may also bring destruction for him, and everyone else in his macabre show. This movie is the unique
Combination of Ron Fitzgerald’s Gothic Illusion performances artistically blended with a Horror film narrative.
“Dark Realm” is not docudrama, not just performance footage or a concert film, but something unlike anything else. Never before in the genres of Horror or Magic has this kind of film project been attempted.”Dark Realm” is an award-winning independant feature film, based on Master Gothic Illusionist Ron Fitzgerald’s stage show “Fitzgerald’s Realm of Magic”. It features his dark, edgy, supernatural inspired illusions combined with a storyline into a Horror film. It’s a one of a kind thrill ride that’s an atmospheric combination of Fitzgerald’s stunning Illusion performances and a Supernatural Horror/Thriller!
Inspired by classic Horror films such as “The Mad Magician” starring Vincent Price, “The Wizard of Gore’ by director Herschel Gordon Lewis, and “Terror Train” featuring Magician David Copperfield, “Dark Realm” goes beyond these classics to present complete, Horror styled illusion performances, presented in front of a live theatre audience without the aid of any ‘Movie Magic”, by a true darkkly inspired Master Ilusiont, who is also an award-winnig actor that has been featured in many Horror films.
For over twenty five years Fitzgerald (A.K.A.Master Ron Fitzgerald) has performed from Hollywood to Hong Kong, as well as Lollapalooza, with his sinister signiture style that features him eating razor blades, decapitating and cremating his lovely companions, for your entertainment pleasure, all with his wicked sense of humor and the promise of ‘dark,sticky fun’! In addition, Ron is the featured host of the long-running Chicago Alternative Burlesque sensation, “Festival of Flesh”, which also has an influence on the film. In addition, Fitzgerald has been acting in Horor and Sci-Fi films for the last 15 years now. As Fitzgerald had completed “The Item”, “The Thirsting”, “Afraid of Sunrise”, “Magus”, “Year of the Ox”, “Dracula’s Orgy of the Dammed” and Arkham Sanitarium: Soul Eater, along the way, it was on director John Lechago’s “Blood Gnome”, an unholy alliance of deadly drama was formed when Ron met “Dark Realm”‘s co-writer and co-producer, with Fitzgerald, and director, Vincent Bilancio. Vincent is the star of John Lechago’s “Blood Gnome” and “Bio Slime” as well as Jeff Leroy’s “The Screaming”. This veteran Horror film personality, with over twenty guest appearances and key roles in major Horror and Sci-Fi classics including Rodger Corman’s “Sorority House Massacre” is also co-creator of the modern cult classic “Werewolf in a Women’s Prison”!
With that kind of background it’s no wonder that when Bilancio wanted to shoot Fizgerald’s illusion show it turnedinto a Horror film!
According to Fitzgerald, “Vinnie and I had talked about shooting my illusion show, but I didn’t want to do the typical television Magic special thing. I wanted to trun it into a Horror flm to really suit my style and give it a totally unique presentation, also to take full advantage of our combined talents.” Now, on “Dark Realm” Fitzgerald and Bilancio’s creative bloodletting begins! Ron Fitzgerald will be seen performing his illusions exactly as he does in his live, Gothic/Horror performance art and illusion shows – with absolutely no camera tricks employed – as this Master Illusionist competes with the a wicked Personification of Evil that has morphed itself into an Earthly entity for a fight to the death for lives and souls, as you ask yourself what is reality and what is illusion.
Also featured in the “Dark Realm” cast along with Fitzgerald and Bilancio are Kaylee Williams (Slices of Life, Insignificant Celluloid), Heather Dorff (What They Say, Truth or Dare), Cheries Jubalie (Dracula’s Orgy of the Damned, Campfire Tales)
and Al Burke (The Wedding Singer, Kiljoy Goes to Hell, Magus).
