First Horror Feature From Rooster Teeth Comes to U.S. Movie Theaters for One-Night Event, Including Special Behind-the-Scenes Footage
DENVER, June 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Get ready for a screaming/laughing/covering-your-eyes, gore-splattered, good night this August when horror-comedy “Blood Fest“ comes to cinemas across the nation. Described by Nightmare on Film Street as “an already wild party where someone has spiked the punch,” and with Dread Central noting it “could become the party horror film of the year,” horror aficionados will want to mark their calendars for this one-night event. In addition to the full-length feature, which premiered at SXSW 2018 and screened to raves at the Cleveland, Fantaspoa and Edinburgh International Film Festivals, attendees will also enjoy exclusive behind-the-scenes access.
Tickets for “Blood Fest” can be purchased at www.FathomEvents.com or participating box offices.
Fathom Events and pioneering media and entertainment company Rooster Teeth bring “Blood Fest” to more than 600 select U.S. cinemas for one night on Tuesday, August 14 at 7:30 p.m. local time, through Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network (DBN). For a complete list of theater locations, visit the Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change).
“Blood Fest“ follows fans who flock to a festival celebrating the most iconic horror movies, only to discover that the charismatic showman (Egerton) behind the event has a diabolical agenda. As festival attendees start dying off, three teenagers (Kay, Gabriel, Batalon), more schooled in horror-film clichés than practical knowledge about neutralizing psycho killers, must band together and battle through various madmen and monstrosities to survive.
Written and directed by Owen Egerton (“Follow,” author of the novel “The Book of Harold, the Illegitimate Son of God”), the movie stars Robbie Kay (Peter Pan in “Once Upon a Time,” “Hannibal Rising”), Seychelle Gabriel (“The Spirit,” “Falling Skies,” “Weeds”), Jacob Batalon (“Avengers: Infinity War,” “Spiderman: Homecoming”) and Rooster Teeth’s own Barbara Dunkelman (“RWBY”) with Tate Donovan (“Manchester by the Sea,” “Argo”) and featuring a cameo by Zachary Levi (“Thor: Ragnarok,” TV’s “Chuck”).
“After working with the talented team at Rooster Teeth on ‘RWBY’ and ‘Let’s Play LIVE,’ we are proud to partner with them again for a new kind of event with ‘Blood Fest,'” Fathom Events CEO Ray Nutt said. “Fans coast-to-coast are in for a real treat with this fun spin on the horror genre.”
“We’re excited to once again partner with Fathom and allow our community to experience an extra special Blood Fest event, with never before seen behind-the-scenes footage they won’t want to miss!” said Matt Hullum, Rooster Teeth CEO and Blood Fest Executive Producer.
