I’m happy to announce there’s going to be another blood bath in Texas. First, there was that messy chainsaw massacre back in the ’70s, which people are still talking about. Then last year, there was the Texas Blood Bath Festival. Now, in honor of the Women in Horror Recognition Month, DOA Blood Bath Entertainment and Damnation Books are presenting the Pretty Scary Blood Bath Film Festival from 11 am to 6 pm on Saturday, February 27, 2010, at the Studio Movie Grill in Addison, Texas, right outside of Dallas. The fest, sponsored in part by Heidi Martinuzzi of Pretty-Scary.net, will showcase a selection of indie horror films created by women.
Both short and feature-length flicks will be presented, including The Mis-Adventures of McT & A by Kimberly Amato, Amy Lyndon and Michelle Tomlinson, Death in Charge by Devi Snively, Family Demons by Ursula Dabrowsky, and Dead Hooker in a Trunk by Jen and Sylvia Soska. Also featured will be the world premiere of The Retelling by Emily Hagins.
Eve Blaack, owner and editor of Hacker’s Source magazine, will serve as Mistress of Ceremonies. I have it on good authority that both Ms. Martinuzzi and Ms. Tomlinson will be in attendance as well. If you’re cool, you’ll be there too. I know I will. Tickets are $15 and are available HERE. If you need a place to stay, try the Hyatt in Addison.
I don’t know what it is about the Lone Star state that attracts all this blood, but this event definitely makes me Texas Proud. And that whole Leatherface thing? That’s pretty cool too.
