On Friday February 20th, the Ellsworth Grand Theatre will host the first stop on the "Twisted Tales from Maine" tour of 2009.

Get ready to cover your eyes… To find out what goes bump in the night… To be scared silly! Maine film companies Motion Media Entertainment, Emptyhouse Film and John Lane Films have teamed up to bring you the "Twisted Tales From Maine Tour." The tour consists of an old fashioned "Creature Double Feature" made up of two full-length horror films that were filmed here in the state of Maine, a prop show featuring bloody props from the films, free giveaways, prizes, and just maybe Bigfoot himself!

The first film, "Monster in the Woods" is a horror/comedy featuring one of the cryptid world's greatest mysteries- BIGFOOT! The film stars Maine actors, features Maine musicians and was filmed in Maine in the Summer of 2007.

The 2nd film of the evening is the zombie epic "2", a film that has been getting rave reviews from the horror world. Over 200 zombies were featured in the making of this film. "2" was also filmed in Maine, and stars Maine actors.

On hand for the evening will be the filmmakers to talk about filmmaking in Maine and to answer any audience questions. Prizes will be given throughout the night, and there will be an opportunity to have your picture taken with BIGFOOT! The big guy will be roaming the streets of Ellsworth on the afternoon of the 20th!

It all starts at the Ellsworth Grand on February 20th, starting at 7:00pm. Tickets are $10 for both films and can be purchased at the Grand Theatre lobby or by calling: (207) 667-5911. Tickets and prizes will also be given away by listening to WKIT 100.3.
