Some time ago we received some new stills from the upcoming movie LONELY JOE.
Emmemax Films is currently in Post-production of its first feature. EMF is currently in talks
with After Dark Films and Lionsgate for a potential November 2008 theatrical release. From
Writer/Director Michael Coonce comes a compelling supernatural thriller in the vein of Saw
meets The Sixth Sense... LONELY JOE is a supernatural thriller based on true events that
took place in South Texas about 20 years ago. A series of bizarre murders and
disappearances inspire a haunting curiosity that drives newspaper reporter Michele
Connelly (played by Erica Leerhsen) back to her hometown of Solvay, NY after 10 years to
uncover what is truly happening on the railroad tracks behind Joe Gainard's (played by
David Fine) old farm.

Hoping to discover the truth behind a decade of cover-ups and disappearances, she is
stonewalled by several people along the way who would prefer that these tragedies remain
a mystery. Emmemax Films of Solvay, New York is the parent company of Lonely Joe
Productions.  Both were founded by Lonely Joe Writer and Producer, Michael Coonce in
collaboration with Solvay resident and business owner, Jody Pucello in hopes that the
success of this film will help increase Upstate, New York's visibility within the
Entertainment Industry. A reporter is stonewalled by an unfriendly small town sheriff when
she tries to investigate mysterious disappearances stretching over 50 years.
