Dread hosted last night – in conjunction with First Look Studios, The American Cinematheque and club Les Deux – the L.A. premiere of filmmaker Tim Sullivan’s splatstick feature 2001 Maniacs: Field of Screams at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, and while the bulk of the coverage is on its way from Dread Central’s Cricket Lee, below check out a handful of stills and video of yours truly welcoming director Sullivan to the stage.
Regardless of the sweltering summer heat, the event was packed, with 2001 Maniacs cast members Bill Moseley, Lin Shaye, Christa Campbell, Ahmed Best, Trevor Wright, Adam Robitel, Katy Marie Johnson, Asa Hope, Alana Curry, Alex Luria, LaRayia Gaston, Christopher McDaniel, Miles Dougal, Nicole Rae, Andrea Leon, Clifford Allen Wagner and Kathryn Le in attendance for the red carpet and premiere. Also on hand to lend their support to Sullivan, whose “Scream Queens 2” hosted reality show debuts August 2, were horror directors Tom (Fright Night) Holland, Darren Lynn (Repo: The Genetic Opera) Bousman, Mick Garris (who hosted the following Q&A), Tobe (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre) Hooper, John (the Feast series) Gulager, Mike (The Gravedancers) Mendez and James (Saw) Wan, as were actors Tyler (Halloween redux) Mane, Angus (Phantasm) Scrimm, Jeffrey (writer of Final Destination) Reddick, Diane Goldner, Clu Gulager and more.
With the after-party at the packed Les Duex going late into the early morning hours, stay tuned for in-depth coverage soon, and in the meantime, check out the clip and images below.
