Blood Bath 2 Film Festival - November 13th & 14th

Blood Bath 2 Film Festival

DOA Blood Bath Entertainment proudly announces Blood Bath 2: The Film Festival at the historic Texas Theater in Dallas, Texas on November 13th and 14th, 2010.  The film festival is a celebration of independent horror cinema showcasing feature and short films from around the world.

The festival is the world premiere for the feature films, KODIE and THE SUPER and the American premiere of feature film FELL. 

KODIE, filmed locally in Dallas by Abel Berry and Jennifer Stone, tells the story of David, a paranormal investigator, who has come to a point in his life where everything he cares about is being ripped away in domestic turmoil. He soon finds himself and his team caught in a world of a murderous little girl named Kodie in the form of a teddy bear.  Many of the cast and crew will be in attendance for a Q&A following the film.

THE SUPER, directed by Brian Weaver & Evan Makrogiannis, shows us the twisted mind of George Rossi, who immigrated to the US and served in the Vietnam War and is now employed as the superintendent of a Queens apartment building. He finds himself quickly slipping into a depraved world that is fueled by the tenants of the building.  It does no good to lock your doors because The Super has the keys.  The producer and directors of THE SUPER will be in attendance.

FELL, directed by Marcus Koch and starring Jeff  Dylan Graham, "is a challenging, relentless exploration of psychological turmoil, the fragility of the human mind and a startling depiction of tragic mental breakdown that evokes memories of Polanski’s Repulsion”, says James Gracey, ‘Behind the Couch’.  Marcus Koch and Jeff Dylan Graham will be in attendance.

Other feature-length selections include Houston filmmaker Mel House’s WALKING DISTANCE, which recently world premiered at the Dallas International Film Festival and marks the return of Adrienne King (FRIDAY THE 13TH) to film; Canadian twins Jen and Sylvia Soska’s DEAD HOOKER IN A TRUNK, which has become an underground cult fan favorite while winning many awards at festivals all around the world; and Adam Minarovich's EXHIBIT A-7, which won the XRISTOS Award for the Best Guerilla Film at the Action On Film International Film Festival and stars Robert Pralgo (THE VAMPIRE DIARIES)..

Featured short films include BY HER HAND SHE DRAWS YOU DOWN, WAFFLE, THE WRITER, SCREAM QUEEN, LIP STICK, READY TEDDY, THE GUEST, DISPATCH, BITS AND PIECES, and RED AND THE WOLF. Also included in the line up will be the top 9 short films from the recent “make a short film in a weekend competition” Splatterfest in Houston.

Debbie Rochon (COLOUR FROM THE DARK, WALKING DISTANCE), Reggie Bannister (PHANTASM, WALKING DISTANCE), and many other actors and filmmakers will be in attendance at the screenings, and audiences are encouraged to participate in the Q&A panels as well as cast their votes on their favorite films. An awards ceremony will take place on Sunday.

The festival will run all day on Saturday and Sunday, with an after party on Saturday night at the local bar Muddy Waters with special musical guests Jack O’Hara Harris, The Lash Outs, and The Whiskey Folk Ramblers starting at 10 PM. Tickets are $7 per feature-length film, $15 per day, or $25 for the weekend. They will be available for advance sales online or at the door.

For out-of-town attendees, the official hotel of the festival is the Belmont Hotel (, with special room rates starting at $79 and a free shuttle to transport guests from the hotel to the Texas Theater.
