Acclaimed actress and Horror icon DEE WALLACE (E.T, Cujo, The Howling) joins the cast & crew of a film every aspiring horror filmmaker should watch – “HORROR MOVIE: A Low Budget Nightmare” – which has its US premiere at HOLLYWOOD HORRORFEST on Sunday July 29 in N. Hollywood.
Committed to helping new filmmakers learn more about the indie horror business, HOLLYWOOD HORRORFEST will be screening this highly acclaimed and incredibly insightful documentary for FREE. It will be followed by a Q&A with DEE WALLACE and the Director & crew. The festival’s own A PANEL TO DIE FOR (P2D4), featuring industry insiders giving advice on how to best make and distribute your low budget masterpiece, also for free, will follow.
Directed by Gary Doust, “HORROR MOVIE: A Low Budget Nightmare” documents writer/director Craig Anderson’s troubled journey to make his feature film debut, the
horror movie “Red Christmas” – a quaint story about a murderous aborted fetus. The documentary dramatically follows Anderson’s emotional rollercoaster ride funding, directing and finally trying to sell his dream movie to an industry he knows little about. It’s indie film-school 101 captured in a engrossing (and at times gross) tale of wide-eyed dreamers, Hollywood scream queens and a vengeful fetus at Christmas.
“Basically every well-intentioned, wrong-step of filmmaking is documented in this wonderful and passionate film,” states Festival Founder/Director Miles Flanagan. “And for that reason it’s a free screening. It needs to be seen by every new, rising filmmaker at the fest.”
