Hey readers! I Love to support Indie films, especially horror 🙂 So I wanted to help the rollout of a new horror anthology out just in time for the Halloween season called Hellarious! It is a rollicking good time that will also send chills down your spine. Seven great shorts that are new, creative, gruesome, and visionary. I asked Jason Tostevin the creator who is an American filmmaker, screenwriter, film festival director, and founder of Hands Off Productions, a boutique studio with a worldwide reputation for its short genre films. Why these particular films?
WHY THESE FILMS?
First, I love horror comedy, and I think most people do, too. But there’s not an easy way to see more of them. These seven films have been huge hits on the fest circuit, and they’ve had crowds afterward telling their friends, “you have to see this movie!” They’re also well-crafted and hilarious stories with unforgettable characters. So they were perfect to assemble in one place for the horror fans I knew would love them.
Here is the press release to tell you more:
NEW HORROR COMEDY COLLECTION “HELLARIOUS” SET TO SLAY THIS SEPT
Seven Legendary Horror Comedy Shorts Assembled in First Collection of its Kind
COLUMBUS, OH – A new, devilishly funny collection of horror short films is out to kill with audiences just in time for Halloween … and there’s going to be hell to pay.
The just-announced feature collection Hellarious will bring together seven of the most legendary horror comedy shorts ever made from some of the world’s best genre filmmakers. The tales include a hilarious menagerie of zombie wives, amateur satanists, reverse werewolves, maniac lunch ladies and more — along with gust-busting gags, gross-outs and gore.
“Hellarious is the perfect movie to celebrate the Halloween season,” said anthology creator Jason Tostevin. “There are scary stories, eww moments that will make you squirm, and even some weirdly sweet moments. And of course, they’re all absolutely hysterical.”
The seven shorts that make up Hellarious are: Lunch Ladies by Clarissa Jacobson and J.M. Logan, Horrific by Robert Boocheck (ABCs of Death 2), Death Metal by Chris McInroy, Born Again and ‘Til Death by Tostevin and Randall Greenland, Killer Kart by James Feeney, Bitten by Sarah K. Reimers.
Preorders are now open for a limited edition Blu-ray and VOD release by distributor Film Spawn. Order here.
“We’re so proud to help present this one-of-a-kind project,” said FilmSpawn founder Chris Ethridge. “These are iconic shorts people have been hearing they have to see, but couldn’t find. Now, for the first time ever, you can see them all in one place.”
Also included exclusively on the limited edition Blu-ray is the world premiere of Clarissa Jacobson’s A Very Important Film, a parody send-up of self-important festival films created as a promotional short for her film Lunch Ladies.
