Roger Corman’s Attack of the 50 Foot Cheerleader is heading to this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, where Corman will introduce the EPIX Original Movie at a 3D screening following the panel to be held on Saturday, July 14th.
The screening will be at 12:00 Midnight at the Gaslamp’s Reading Cinemas. The movie will then premiere on August 25th at 10:00 pm ET on EPIX.
In an update to the great genre pictures of the ‘50s, Roger Corman’s first ever 3D film, Attack of the 50 Foot Cheerleader, follows a college coed who uses an experimental drug to transform herself into a popular beauty – but at a huge price. Produced by Corman along with his producing partner/wife Julie Corman, the movie stars Jena Sims (“The Vampire Diaries”), Sean Young (Blade Runner), Treat Williams (Hair, Prince of the City, “Everwood”), Ryan Merriman (“Pretty Little Liars”), A.J. Lamas (“Leave it to Lamas”), Mary Woronov (Eating Raoul), and Ted Raimi (Spider-Man) with cameo appearances by Corman himself and director John Landis (An American Werewolf in London, Animal House, The Blues Brothers). Acclaimed visual effects artist Kevin O’Neill (Francis Ford Coppola’s Dracula, Blade, and Piranha 3D) directs from a script by Mike MacLean.
