‘President’s Day’ Director Cooks Up ‘Witch’s Brew’

Just in time for Halloween, Baltimore filmmakers Chris LaMartina and Jimmy George unleash bottles of beer and buckets of blood in the gory horror-comedy Witch’s Brew. Check out the newly released trailer below!

When two micro-brewers screw over the town witch, she curses their latest batch of alcohol. Anyone who drinks it suffers a gruesome, ironic demise.

Written and directed by LaMartina, Witch’s Brew harkens back to the days when horror films were fun, without taking themselves too seriously. The film boasts performances by George Stover (John Waters’ Desperate Living and Polyester), Ruby LaRocca (Lord of the G-Strings), and Shawn C. Phillips (star of Syfy Channel’s “Haunted High School” and Chillerama).

Witch’s Brew is the fourth film from Baltimore based Midnight Crew Studios.

LaMartina and George’s previous film, President’s Day, tore up the festival circuit last fall, playing Fargo Fantastic Fest, Fuel the Fear Fest, Killer Film Fest (winning “Best Feature” and “Best Screenplay”), Oklahoma Horror Film Festival, San Diego Horror Film Festival, and Synerfest (winning “Best Feature”). It will be released early next year through Spy Global Media.
