Directors/Stars Attend Midnight ‘Deadgirl’ Screenings July 24/25!

Dark Sky Films is prepping to do a special midnight theatrical run for their forthcoming festival hit Deadgirl, a horror/thriller about two teenagers who make a shocking discovery that not only threatens their friendship but also their lives. In a forgotten room of an abandoned asylum, they find a beautiful woman tied to a bed, and soon come to realize she is anything but dead. Below we’ve got a list of the announced midnight dates for JULY 25th, along with which director and/or star will be making a live appearance! Don’t miss out!
Dark Sky Films announced today that the film’s cast members and filmmakers will be making special appearances at the film’s midnight showings on July 24th and 25th. The film will be released theatrically as a simultaneous, one-weekend, midnight only, roadshow-style theatrical event, currently in 9 major markets.

Says Dark Sky’s Marketing Manager Nicole Mikuzis, “The buzz on the film has been at a steady increase since its debut at the Toronto film festival, and we hope to build upon that momentum with nationwide midnight events. There is nothing like being part of a festival or midnight audience and sharing an experience as shocking, thought-provoking and polarizing as the one DEADGIRL provides. We would like to bring that type of festival `event’ experience to moviegoers around the country. No matter where it plays, it will be bound to cause some very animated audience reactions, much like those that we have seen at every screening thus far.”

It has been called “audacious” (Hollywood Reporter), “unsettlingly sexual” (IndieWIRE) and “pretty much f***ing brilliant” (Ain’t It Cool News). Thought to be too controversial to release, it would go on to shock festival audiences, outrage religious groups, and blow away midnight movie crowds from coast to coast. It remains one of the most daringly original and disturbing films of our time.

Shiloh Fernandez (RED), Noah Segan (BRICK), Michael Bowen (KILL BILL) and Candice Accola (JUNO) star in this story of two high school misfits who cut school to explore the remains of an abandoned hospital. The gruesome discovery they make will test the very limits of their sanity and tear apart their young lives forever: A woman stripped naked and chained to a table. She’s abandoned, beautiful and dead…or is she? From the producer of HELLRAISER and HEATHERS comes this depraved, poignant and genre-busing new indie classic about intimacy, morality and the horror of growing up. You may scream in terror, gasp with disgust, or debate it for days, but one thing is for certain: You will never forget DEADGIRL.
