Going to horror conventions is a great way for fans to meet their favorite stars and filmmakers–and potentially have sex with them. That’s the jumping off point for Celebrity Crush, premiering June 21st in Los Angeles as part of the Dances with Films Festival. It’s written and directed by Oliver Robins, who also stars in the film. Robins played Robbie in 1982’s Poltergeist (directed by Tobe Hooper) meaning Celebrity Crush is a meta-film that may or may not be based on autobiographical experiences.
Today, Dread Central is thrilled to exclusively premiere the trailer for Celebrity Crush, along with the film’s poster. Give the trailer a spin at the top of the article and peep the synopsis and poster below.
When the B horror movie Chain-Face Clown was released in 1985, no one knew the film would one day become a classic. Well, at least by a select group of horror movie fans. The film’s biggest fan, 29-year-old Emily Lynessa always knew she was going to meet and fall in love with Jonathan Blaklee, mid-40s, the star of Chain-Face Clown. Her plan is simple: Meet Jonathan at an up-coming signing for the DVD and lure him back to her home where Jonathan will be imprisoned inside her home until he realizes Emily is the one for him.
In addition to Robins, Celebrity Crush stars Alissa Schneider, Melissa McNerney, and Jonathan D. Lee.
