We here at the DZFF love seeing films that have screened in the past go on to great things. A film I really loved was SKEW which has just had their US release and also have sent news about their next film. Read on for their press releases:
#1: Independent Horror Feature Film SKEW will be released on DVD on Redbox in the U.S.A. on March 12th, 2013 and iTunes April 2nd, 2013. The psychological horror feature SKEW has been described as “Truly unnerving” (Rogue Cinema), “A terrifying movie” (Arrow In The Head) and “Paranormal Activity on steroids” (Australia’s A Night of Horror International Film Festival).
SKEW follows three close friends who head out on an eagerly anticipated road trip with video camera in hand to record their journey. What starts out as a carefree adventure slowly becomes a descent into the ominous as unexplained events threaten to disrupt the balance between them. One by one they must struggle with personal demons and paranoia as friendships are tested and gruesome realities are revealed…and recorded.
#2: And the Cult Hit SKEW will be released on DVD in Japan on April 5th, 2013. Before such box office hits as Paranormal Activity (2007), Cloverfield (2008), and Quarantine (2008), writer/director Sevé Schelenz brought SKEW, his first feature film, to camera in 2005. Within the same vein as The Blair Witch Project, Schelenz creates a first-person account in psychological horror that will keep audiences on edge until its revealing conclusion.
SKEW has been accepted in over 50 festivals, won several awards including “Best Feature” (Nevada Film Festival), “Best Director” (Late Night Horror Film Festival) and “Indy Spirit Award” (Horrorfest). The film has received great reviews and found distribution in the U.S., U.K., Canada, Germany, Malaysia, Russia and Japan. For more info on SKEW contact Sevé Schelenz at email@example.com.
The makers of the Independent Cult Horror Feature SKEW step it up a sinister notch as they get ready for production this summer on their new film PEELERS.
PEELERS takes place on the closing night of a small town strip club when a group of unwanted guests arrive and all hell breaks loose. Club owner and ex-ball player Blue Jean Douglas, is our sexy, confident, ass-kicking heroine who rises to the task of protecting both her girls and her bar from psychopathic infected killers who will stop at nothing to slaughter everyone. PEELERS destroys the cliché stripper horror sub-genre by giving us a story packed with strong characters, exciting twists and lots of blood. Oh, and did we mention strippers?
“Much like how SKEW brought an original and unique twist on the found footage sub-genre, PEELERS will be a stripper horror feature film that actually delivers on tension, terror, and trepidation.” – Sevé Schelenz (Producer/Director)
