A Nightmare on Elm Street meets Phantom of the Opera meets Kabuki theaters? Yes please!
Jerome Sable’s musical horror comedy Stage Fright is now officially my most anticipated midnighter at this weekend’s SXSW Film Festival.
Magnet has released an absolutely epic red band trailer for the slasher that’s mucked in blood and laughs. By the time it’s over you’ll be giving it a standing ovation, guaranteed!
While it debuts at the fest, you won’t have to wait long to see at home: Magnet will release the film in its Ultra VOD program, launching it on iTunes and On Demand on April 3 and following with a theatrical release on May 9.
Described as Scream meets “Glee,” “Starry-eyed teenager Camilla Swanson wants to follow in her mother’s footsteps and become a Broadway diva, but she’s stuck working in the kitchen of a snobby performing arts camp. Determined to change her destiny, she sneaks in to audition for the summer showcase and lands a lead role in the play, but just as rehearsals begin, blood starts to spill, and Camilla soon finds herself terrified by the horror of musical theatre.”
Fright is the feature film debut of writer-director Jerome Sable, director of the absolutely hilarious, award-winning short, “The Legend of Beaver Dam.” Allie MacDonald and Douglas Smith star with Minnie Driver and Meat Loaf.
