Have you made a horror film that is DYING to be seen? Here’s your chance to present your epic, terrifying, and delicious entertainment to the midnight masses…if you DARE! Read on for details of “Elvira’s Horror Hunt”.
From the Press Release:
Put on you creative thinking “wigs” because Elvira, Mistress of the Dark (Elvira’s Movie Macabre), wants you to SUBMIT… your horror feature and short films to her! Participate and compete in the first edition of “ELVIRA’S HORROR HUNT”, an indie genre film festival and web extravaganza co-hosted by Elvira’s best “ghoul-friend” Peaches Christ (Midnight Mass) and presented in association with Comikaze Entertainment and HorrorHound. The deviously demented duo even whipped up a special video laying out all the devilish details for you!
“Elvira, Comikaze, HorrorHound, AND Peaches Christ: It’s a match made in HELL and my worst nightmare – and for me that’s a GOOD THING,” says Elvira, Mistress of the Dark. “I’m practically popping out of my dress with excitement, and we promise to unearth the hottest new films… and bury the ones that suck.”
WHAT IS “ELVIRA’S HORROR HUNT”? It’s a competition that’s one part movie review show, one part film festival, and all parts funny as hell! The HorrorHound selection committee will select 13 features and 7 shorts to be screened for adoring fans at HorrorHound Weekend, Indianapolis (September 7 & 8, 2012) with Elvira and Peaches in person! The same feature films will also be individually reviewed by the dynamically dark duo for “HORROR HUNT,” a brand-new, online web series full of outrageous, unapologetic humor and horror savvy.
“I grew up worshipping at the altar of Elvira so being her co-hostess is a dream come true!” proclaims Peaches Christ, hostess of Midnight Mass. “Being ‘indie’ filmmakers ourselves, I think this innovative film festival and multimedia event will expose the genre world to some incredible movies from filmmakers who may have been previously overlooked.”
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE! Of the 13 features and 7 short films featured, THREE will be selected by Elvira and Peaches Christ for presentation to a panel of horror industry professionals, who will declare the winners of Grand Prizes including: a red carpet Los Angeles premiere for their film hosted by the Elvira and Peaches Christ, round-trip airfare/lodging, and V.I.P. bragging rights at “Stan Lee’s Comikaze” expo September 15 & 16th, 2012.
“Elvira is one of the most iconic horror characters of our time,” says Regina Carpinelli, CEO/ Co-founder of Comikaze Entertainment. “On behalf of ‘Stan Lee’s Comikaze,’ it is an honor and pleasure to be collaborating with one of the most brilliant businesswomen in our industry on a project that is sure to change the way film festivals are created.”
