Dread Central Presents: Director’s Cut Trailer Terrorizes Filmmaking

Coming soon from Dread Central Presents is Adam Rifkin’s Director’s Cut! Directed by Rifkin, the film also stars Penn Jillette, Missi Pyle, Harry Hamlin, Hayes MacArthur, and Lin Shaye.

It’s a very, very weird film and has scared off distributors from day one,” Rifkin previously told Entertainment Weekly. “So, that’s why it’s just such a fantastic twist of fate that Dread Central and Epic Pictures teamed up to create Dread Central Presents at the perfect time for this movie. They are not at all afraid of how hard of a movie this is to sell. They are embracing that this is a tough sell because they think that that’s part of the fun of creating a brand. So, more power to them for rolling the dice and taking on our crazy little film.”

Adam did a fabulous job, and because there was no studio, there was absolutely no compromise,” added Jillette to the site. “We made exactly the movie we wanted to make. We did the Slamdance Festival and it did really well and it played a few other places. [Then] we ended up in the situation where we went back and tried to sell it to the very group of people that turned it down before. But finally a company came to us that loves the movie and wants to put it out.

To celebrate the release, we’ve got a brand new poster as well as a trailer for you all to enjoy!

From Dread Central Presents comes the new film from the crazed minds of director Adam Rifkin and Penn Jillette (Penn & Teller)! In this ultimate “meta movie,” Herbert Blount (Penn Jillette) is a crowdfunding contributor for the new Adam Rifkin feature KNOCKED OFF. Unhappy with the film, he steals the footage and kidnaps actress Missi Pyle to star in his own “director’s cut!”

Director’s Cut will be coming to select theaters May 10 and 11 and it will be followed by a VOD and Blu-ray/DVD combo release on May 29!
