Congrats to the team on the win for Best Feature Under 10K! The win at the Monkey Bread Tree Awards came with an excellent review for the film:
“The really funny thing about James Christopher’s film isn’t really it’s comedy, not to say that that’s not funny (it is incredibly funny at times) – but for me, the funniest thing really is its concept alone, and the fact that no one has really done this type of film yet. I’m jealous. Of late I’ve been trying to find a perfect horror film to make, or comedy, something really heavily genre based… and here there’s this effort, a film about a killer killing off adult stars featuring in a making-of type of documentary gone wrong. It’s gory, it’s funny, it’s a ‘Scream’ by ‘Scary Movie’ glory. It is a concept that should have already been made in a bigger scale, someone ought to have made a franchise out of this in Hollywood back in the noughties.
It’s definitely of our time though – a delicious self conscious sexy gutty romp that hangs on the tongue of its own clever delight. Its also all the things I love about indie film: inventive, creative and ludicrously personal. And by personal I really do mean that it has a personal voice — it isn’t the blockbuster with meaningless themes that everyone can relate to, it isn’t void of meaning, it somehow represents a personal point of view of what film should be, and how it should function. Major hat tips to all those involved, it’s a brave and unique venture.”
What a great long weekend in the Alamo City. Stoked to bring The Porn Movie Massacre to Jessica and Nathan’s hometown.
The fest is ran by great people. Runner Adam Rocha, programmer Cedric Smith and the team did a great job of creating a fun, classy event in a great venue, the Tobin Center. We had a great turnout for the movie and made a couple of new fans along the way. Loved getting to see Top Secret with director David Zucker in the crowd. And hanging with William Tyler (The Monsters) and crew is always fun.
The best thing I can say about the fest is the best thing I can say about anyone: they are standup. They stood up for our movie despite the racey title and gave us a great screening.
We’re stoked to be bringing the Texas premiere of PORN MOVIE MASSACRE to the prestigious San Antonio Film Festival. We’re humbled beyond words at what it means to bring our movie to the Alamo city. Nathan and Jessica grew up there and it’ll be so much fun to bring our brand or horror comedy to the circuit. We have 10 more screenings of the film already scheduled after, so come get your funny on.
Well, that old feeling is back. That post festival hangover. Just like a bad film festival can leave you questioning why you do it, a great festival can reinvigorate you to the point that all you want to do is get back. And leaving it leaves you more than a little heartbroken. Crimson Screen in South Carolina is more than a great festival. it’s next level and an example to all the other festivals I attend.
A cool venue, good programming and a sense of community all add up to make this festival well worth the fee to submit and attend. Robbie and Tommy, who are the faces of the fest really drive it home. They are welcoming, hospitable and more than willing to help you experience the cool town of Charleston as well as the fest. It is everything you want a fest to be, from the networking, presentation of the films and career opportunities. I love it. I love them. And can’t wait to get back.
