Soul possession, afterlife, fatalities, living-dead, it’s just some of the subjects  themes you’ll see in Maria Pulera’s latest film Between Worlds. The film stars Nicolas Cage, Franka Potente and Penelope Mitchell. I spoke to Maria about the film and she shares her experiences working on it and her inspirations for it. 


There was a natural connection between Maria and I, due to our Midwestern roots. Unfortunately Maria had to deal with the blizzards already and I’m more than familiar with them. 

Maria mentioned being fascinated by bizarre and odd, as well as the paranormal. I find the paranormal interesting also, it’s why films like Between Worlds is appealing. 

Potente is a really good underrated actress. I was glad to see her in this movie. Certainly I agreed with Maria about what she offers in any role. As far as Cage goes, I heard what I expected. He turns into the character, even off-camera. I almost chuckled when Maria said that at times she wasn’t sure if she was talking to Nic or his character Joe. 

Who knew my random mention of SpongeBob turned into a conversation? Which lead to some animated movie talk. All good stuff. Fun chat with Maria. 

BETWEEN WORLDS releases in Theaters on December 21, 2018 in NY & LA and select cities

Once upon a time I watched Monday Night Raw on Monday nights. By coincidence I ended up hooked on The Bachelor/Bachelorette. That lead to a Blog at Chicago Now called Bachelor Universe and a podcast of the same name. Now, I've decided to spread my wings and create this site that can be your Bachelor/Bachelorette destination. Aside from The Bachelor, in my personal life I'm a bachelor myself. Looking for the love of my life (not handing out many roses). I'm an avid animal lover. Have a rabbit and two turtles. I'm a film critic and co-founder of the Chicago Independent Film Critics Circle (CIFCC). Lover of sports. Currently residing in the suburbs of Chicago (my hometown).
