How does cult cinema survive and thrive in the 21st century? This notion will be explored when Survival of the Film Freaks has its World Premiere at HorrorHound Weekend Film Festival, August 24th-26th in Indianapolis, IN.
Joe Bob Briggs, Ted Raimi and Adam Green are just a few of the familiar faces that you’ll see in this documentary that is both a love letter to and in-depth study of “cult.”
“It’s a wonderful, full-circle feeling,” says co-director Kyle Kuchta. “Bill and I both started our respective professional careers at horror conventions; that’s actually how we met. So to be able to premiere our film at one of the biggest conventions in the country feels amazing.”
Kuchta was directing Fantasm, a documentary about horror conventions when he met Bill, the host of the cult film podcast Outside The Cinema.
“Ever since I was a young kid I always remember being fascinated by the idea of weird and wonderful films,” Fulkerson states. “So after over two years of work, it’s really exciting to premiere the flick, especially for a group of like-minded individuals. It makes me happier than the VHS box art for The Barbarians.”
This doc will be premiering in good company that weekend. #H2F2 will also include the world premiere of the Joe Dante-produced Camp Cold Brook, screenings of horror favorites Jason Goes To Hell and The Lost Boys, and more. The film festival is part of HorrorHound Weekend, and all details about the convention can be found here.
