Bastards of Horror and Horror Realm will present their third independent grindhouse program as a midnight screening at the Hollywood Theater in Dormont on November 19, 2011.
The Independent Grindhouse program recognizes and celebrates the work of independent filmmakers in the horror genre. This year’s event features trailers for upcoming films currently in production, plus short and feature films:
My Undeadly, a zombie short film from Dave Reda and Elftwin Films which was named as an official selection of the 2011 Sacramento Horror Film Festival, Shriekfest and the Hollyshorts Film Festival.
The Slasher Hunter is a parody of slasher films. Written and directed by Steve Rudzinski and his Dark Mullet Cinema studio, this short film has the tag line “Five slashers. One Slasher Hunter. They’re gonna need more slashers.”
Tonight You Die, the second film from Jim Roberts and Blind Sight Productions. Roberts is an Electronic Media Production major at Kent State University. His first film, Welcome to Deer Creek, won first place in the 2009 Horror Realm Film Festival and was recently featured on Barnabus Bailey’s Greatest Show Unearthed, an internet horror host program. Roberts will be on hand for a question and answer session at the end of the program.
Tickets are only $5 and can be purchased at the door. Tim Gross and Charlie Fleming of the Bastards of Horror will host the event, which includes prize giveaways. Gross, author of The Big Ass Book of Gross Movie Reviews, will also be signing copies of the book which will be on sale at the theater.
The Hollywood Theater, located at 1449 Potomac Avenue in Dormont, is the last surviving single screen theater in the South Hills of Pittsburgh. The theater is operated by Friends of the Hollywood Theater, a non-profit organization.
