Pretty cool, yeah? Get to e-mailing, but before you go, here’s a quick note from director Tim Sullivan:
”So much of my success as a filmmaker, and especially the success of the Maniacs franchise, has come from the love and support of the fans of the genre and the genre community. Without you guys there would be no 2001 Maniacs: Field of Screams. The movie was a true community effort — it was made by fans, the music was contributed by fans, and for me it is super important that the film’s premiere be for the fans and most importantly attended by the fans.
When talking about the premiere, I decided that I wanted to create something that if I were a lover of the Maniacs franchise would be THE premiere that I wanted to go to and, more importantly, be able to go to. Having said that, we are creating an event that for a mere $11.00, less than the cost of seeing a 3D movie, if you’re in the LA area, you’ll get to attend the premiere of 2001 Maniacs: Field of Screams with the cast and other celebrity guests that we’re going to announce along the way. You wouldn’t believe some of the people who have said they are coming. This is without question going to be a star-studded premiere that anyone can buy tickets to, and then even get to attend the after party of at no additional cost! Usually premieres like this are set up for the executives who get to go for free when they easily can afford a hundred dollar ticket while the real fans wait outside trying to get in. Not here. No way.
Again, this is the premiere for the fans, to be attended by them, the filmmakers, the stars, horror icons, and even rock and roll icons — all to be announced. I cannot tell you how happy I am to be doing this side-by-side with Dread Central. For me Dread Central sums up some of the best in the horror press because they are amazing cheerleaders of the genre. I am so excited to have them sponsoring and presenting this event. It’s gonna be one HELL of a barbecue! So everybody better get ready to party with the maniacs all night long!
Shock N Roll,
Dread Central’s own Sean Decker will be hosting the festivities! See you there and GOOD LUCK!
