FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Montreal, May 5th 2010) This morning DiggerFilms annonces the movie premiere of Under the Scares, a documentary about the independent horror film industry in North America. The documentary, shot in numerous cities around the United States, was produced and directed by Steve Villeneuve. “We went to New York, Pittsburgh, Hollywood, Cleveland and Chicago, just to name a few… All things considered, we’ve travelled more than 30 000 km in order to make this film,” says Steve Villeneuve, smiling. “And we hope the finished movie will now travel just as much or more.”
The documentary primarily aims at helping young filmmakers to understand the process’ involved in the making of an independent horror film. Many aspects are discussed by the numerous personalities interviewed: the arrival of the new video technologies and the impact it has on the marketplace now that “anyone can make a movie” ; the relative inexperience of most filmmakers, often resulting in a loss of 90% of the funds invested ; the need to get a good story to begin with ; the actor’s point of view.
Interviewees includes Robert Kurtzman (“From Dusk Till Dawn,” “The Rage”), Herschell Gordon Lewis (the Godfather of Gore, “Blood Feast”), Lloyd Kaufman (Troma Entertainment), Tony Timpone (Fangoria Magazine), Debbie Rochon (Scream Queen), Gary Jones (“Xena, Warrior Princess,” “Boogeyman 3”), Rodrigo Gudino (Rue-Morgue Magazine).
The movie premiere of Under the Scares will take place in New York City at the Tribeca Cinemas at 7:30pm on Saturday May 29th.
This event will be opened to the public, although reservations are needed due to the limited number of seats available.
