Everyone loves a good horror comedy, well how about if you throw in some musical theatre as well?! This is exactly what has happened with the new film, Stage Fright, that is looking to take the upcoming SXSW festival by storm.
The film is released by Magnet and they have been so kind as to release a red-band trailer for the film, so just be careful if you decide to watch it at work.
The film looks a hell of a lot of fun, and seems to have a good overall mix of horror, comedy and music. I have to admit that I did laugh at the bukkake joke; call me juvenile if you want, but if something is funny, I will laugh.
The film is from first time writer/director Jerome Sable and features Minnie Driver and the one and only Meat Loaf! The plot is as follows
“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.”
Magnet are releasing the film on its own Ultra VOD program, iTunes and On Demand on April 3rd in the US. It looks like England will have to wait a bit longer for this one, which is a damn shame!
