Sunday night at The Orpheum in Foxboro, MA, the Maine-made short film SHE FEAST took top honors at the international Killer Film Challenge. The challenge assigns groups of filmmakers a horror sub-genre and gives them 72 hours to create and submit a completed short horror film.
The Maine Murder Party were assigned the splatter genre and created the bloody short film SHE FEAST, directed by Nate LaChance and starring Carrie LaChance, Krystal Kenville and Vanessa Leigh.
Three days after cleaning up at the Killer Film Challenge, SHE FEAST struck again, winning BEST PRODUCTION at the Portland Phoenix 5th Annual Short Film Festival.
Monday night (Nov. 22) at 9 p.m. at Geno’s in Portland, Mainers will have a chance to catch the extended cut of SHE FEAST, along with a special screening of the Maine-made horror thriller THE WRONG HOUSE. Also premiering are the trailers for locally made feature films THE STALKER (director Nate LaChance) and JUBILEE JONES (director Teymur Lazimov).
THE WRONG HOUSE was inspired by a break-in at the home of director Shawn French and his wife (and co-producer) Sue Stevens. It stars Stacy Ann Strang, Brendan Potter, Daniel Galloway, Megan Mathieu and Julian Brand as a group of friends camping in the Maine wilderness who burglarize an isolated home in the woods. When the owners track them down, the thieves learn too late there are some people you just shouldn’t mess with… and that they picked THE WRONG HOUSE.
THE WRONG HOUSE is one of the best-reviewed independent horror films to ever come out of Maine, racking up raves from critics in over a dozen states and three countries. It was an official selection at the Queen City Scare Fair in Meridian, MS and will be represented at this weekend’s Dark Carnival Film Fest in Bloomington, IN.
Currently self-distributed on DVD through Amazon and all Bull Moose locations, THE WRONG HOUSE has been picked up for international distribution by Elite Entertainment and an Elite DVD/Blu-ray edition loaded with over an hour of special features will be on store shelves later this winter.
“We’re psyched to be screening THE WRONG HOUSE again in our home state,” said writer/director Shawn French. “So many people have had their homes or cars robbed and Mainers are really enjoying our twisted little tale of revenge.”
