BLOODFEST CLUB is Coming! Check out the Trailer!
Anyone who saw the Late Night Grindhouse screening of HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN at The Hi-Pointe Theater a couple of weeks ago saw the big-screen premiere of the trailer for BLOODFEST CLUB that played before the feature. BLOODFEST CLUB exists at this time only as a trailer, but the filmmakers are hoping the positive buzz the trailer is generating will help raise money to finance a feature-length version of the film. BLOODFEST CLUB will be the second film from the writing team of Oscar Madrid and Jim Ousley. Their first, HOOCH & DADDY-O, was an award-winning mock documentary (available on Netflix). about a fictional 80′s cop show directed in 2005 by Donna Northcott (who directed the recent Abominable Dr. Phibes stage show that was part of Vincentennial). BLOODFEST CLUB will mark the directorial debut of Madrid and stars writer Ousley as Sonny Kane, a slow-witted, Chuck Norris-obsessed janitor at a High School that has some kind of bloodthirsty alien roaming the hallways killing students. Sonny must go from “Mop-Pushing Zero to Hi-Octane Hero!” and battle the slimy critter on graduation night. Madrid and Ousley hope to use the the BLOODFEST CLUB trailer, and a 12-minute film they’ve assembled as tools to raise funds for the production of a the feature, which will be the first full-length movie by their production company, Crunchy Cool Films. Ousley describes the script as a gory hybrid of 80′s slasher films and John Hughes teen ensembles. He cites director Fred Dekker (MONSTER SQUAD) as an influence and compares the script for BLOODFEST CLUB to Dekker’s 1986 classic NIGHT OF THE CREEPS, one of Ousley’s favorite films. Gordy Hoffman, older brother of Oscar-winner Phillip Seymour runs the acclaimed BlueCat screenwriting completion. Ousley and Madrid (and 3000 others)entered their BLOODFEST CLUB script in the competition where it ranked in the top 10%.
Madison Burke, Carson Kelley, Eddie Perino, Caroline Rouse, and Peter Mayer are set to costar in BLOODFEST CLUB.
Madrid and Ousley will be attending the upcoming Contamination Horror, Sci-Fi, and Pop Culture Convention here in St. Louis this weekend,June 24-26th at the Westport Sheridan Hotel. They will be set up at a table so stop by and check out their trailer, behind-the-scenes footage, and cool alien effects props. See them there or visit their website: http://www.bloodfestclub.com/
