MPI Media Group’s My Sucky Teen Romance, the breakthrough feature film from 18-year-old writer-director Emily Hagins, will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on September 4, 2012. But – before that – it’s gonna play theaters! Launching with a red carpet premiere in Los Angeles at Cinespace on August 22nd, the film will make its way through New York, Chicago and Emily’s home base in Austin. Hagins will be present for all four screenings and do a post-show Q&A. There will be ticket giveaways both on AICN and right here on Bloody-Disgusting. Back in November I interviewed Hagins about the film and her upcoming project, you can check that out here.
My Sucky Teen Romance is the third feature written and directed by Hagins, who made her debut – at age 12(!) – with the horror film Pathogen. Working out of Austin, Tex., Hagins has created an original new movie about “a group of teens whose normal romantic awkwardness becomes compounded when they discover that some of the kids they’ve just met at a sci-fi convention are honest-to-goodness neck-biting vampires.”
The young cast includes Tina Rodriguez (Machete, Inglourious Basterds), Devin Bonnée (TV’s “Chase”), Lauren Lee and, in their movie debuts, Elaine Hurt and Patrick Delgado. Head inside for the trailer!
