Horror Film Receives World Premiere; September 6, 8.30 PM, @ TFAC!!!


Locally filmed and Internationally distributed horror Film MORBID receives its world premiere on September 6, 2013, at 8.30 PM at The Tullahoma Fine Arts Center,  The release screening will be followed by a Q&A session with the Cast and Crew.  MORBID is the first full-length film written and directed by horror blogger Chuck Conry (zombiesdontrun.net).  Chuck also writes columns and does a weekly podcast with MORBID stars Ryan Grooms, Brandon Layne, and Brandon Magouirk.This low-budget “slasher,” made for under $500, was shot in five days and purposefully emulates old-school, “grindhouse” movies of the late 70’s  (the scratches, grain, twitches, and jerks are all intentional).

Thanks to grassroots word-of-mouth and help from web-sites such as bloody-digusting.com and dreadcentral.com, the film’s first trailer garnered over 2,000 views on YouTube!

Created under the banner “Grundy Nation Films”, MORBID will get a release by way of a limited VHS from Lazer Paladin Video — and an international DVD and streaming distribution deal will be announced…soon.

This throwback to 1980s slashers was locally made and features the work of many local artists.   Come see who you recognize.  Come see where you recognize.  Will your friends and favorite locations become part of local lore?

It goes like this:

A small town becomes the playground to a masked killer, stalking the locals.  With the town’s sheriff more worried about a football game than getting to the bottom of what’s going on, an out-of-town Detective rushes to save the lives of a group of teens who toss a party in the middle of all the chaos.

But we soon learn, these teens have some complicated issues of their own…

There is no charge, but a minimum $5 donation to cover the reception would be appreciated.   Light drinks and refreshments will be provided

Red-carpet event, PR and photos will start at 7.30.

18 and up ONLY, unless with guardian.  Please be prepared to show IDs for a 21+ wristband.
