The first official trailer for Chris Morrissey’s upcoming supernatural thriller Trick of the Witch made its debut online today. The indie will have its Los Angeles theatrical premiere in November followed by a New York run in February 2011. Other cities will follow in March and April.
“The pic stars indie film starlet Share Cherrie (Lipgloss Explosion!) and centers on a group of fashion models stranded at a secluded mansion while fighting an evil witchcraft curse.” The film is inspired by Italian witchcraft Stregheria and was shot all over Los Angeles earlier this year. Actress Shay Alexis makes her feature film debut and co-stars along with Owen Alabado (the gay indie hit Rock Haven), Suzy Cote (Television’s CSI & The Guardian), and cult Australian personality Renae Boult (aka Abigail De’Ath and star of The Cloth Dagger).
Trick of the Witch marks Chris Morrissey’s fourth feature film. A couple of his earlier projects, the sci-fi B-movie spoof Lipgloss Explosion! and the cult midnight movie Superstar Female Serial Killer will have special one-off theatrical midnight screenings alongside showings of Trick of the Witch during its L.A. run.
