Actor and filmmaker John Schneider (Smallville, Dukes of Hazzard) has rounded up some of horror’s most famous faces for Smothered, premiering in New Orleans in May.
The highly-anticipated fright-fest, which features the likes of Kane Hodder, Don Shanks, R.A Mihailoff, Bill Mosely, and Brea Grant , boasts the largest number of horror icons ever to grace the screen at the same time.
Smothered, written and directed by Schneider, sees the horror icons playing themselves in a scenario that sees them attending a small, disheartening horror-convention on Friday the 13th. Running out of patience but principally money, the group accept a cash-offer to go and scare-up the local RV park – but things take a surprising, dark turn when they arrive. The tables are turned as the monsters of the movie screen become the prey!
A recent sneak preview resulted in glowing reviews across-the-board, with critics calling the movie “a horror-comedy with some bite” (Shock Til You Drop) and ” A must see cinematic event” (Examiner).
Smothered will premiere in Louisiana, where the film was shot and Schneider’s Fairlight Films is now located.
The premiere, being held at the Sheraton New Orleans Hotel on Friday May 16, encompass a pre-screening social hour and post-screening Q&A with Schneider.
Members of the film’s cast and crew, as well as city dignitaries are expected to be in attendance.
Smothered, also featuring Michael Berryman (The Hills Have Eyes), John Kassir (‘The Crypt Keeper’), Dane Rhodes (True Detective), and Shanna Forrestall (The Last Exorcism), is due for release late 2014.
