Tim Sullivan (2001 Maniacs, Driftwood and the forthcoming Chillerama) will be attending the Rue Morgue Festival of Fear to host two exclusive previews of Cut/Print and One For the Road, the first productions under his “Tim Sullivan Presents” banner.
A study in darkness and endurance, writer/director Nathaniel Nose’s Cut/Print follows a morally corrupt filmmaker (played by Vince Orlando, scheduled to attend the screening) who embarks on an exploitive documentary about serial killers in the hope he will draw out the real deal. He gets his wish, evoking the perverse, spanking brand new celluloid bad guy- THE MAESTRO. “No one will forget the final five minutes of ‘Cut/Print,’ assuming they can sit through them,” promises Sullivan.
Based on the short story by Stephen King, writer/director Paul Ward’s One For the Road serves as a coda to King’s classic Salem’s Lot and stars genre favorites Reggie Bannister (Phantasm) and Adam Robitel (2001 Maniacs) as two Maine locals whose lives are disrupted by a mysterious stranger whose wife and young son have been stranded in the infamous Lot…
Check out some exclusive images.
These screenings mark the first opportunity for audiences to view either film, both which evoke shades of horror decidedly darker then the ‘splatstick’ shocks of Sullivan’s 2001 Maniacs franchise and “I Was a Teenage Werebear” segment of the upcoming horror comedy anthology feature Chillerama.
(Sullivan will also be hosting the uncut Festival version of “Teenage Werebear” along with Adam Rifkin’s “Wadzilla” in a special Rue Morgue Chillerama teaser screening.)
