MIAMI PREMIERE
ABOUT THE FILM: In the tradition of E.C. Horror Comics, this cautionary tale examines life through the eyes of Death who gets derailed when an impatient single Mom carelessly mistakes the scythe-carrying cloaked one for her tardy babysitter and leaves Death to care for her precocious 9-year-old daughter.
Whitney teaches Death about life’s many marvels through violent video games, macaroni and cheese and the magic of Sea Munkees. But when Whitney reveals some dark tendencies of her own, it’s up to Death to lighten things up before returning to the grim duties that lie in wait …  Source: deathincharge.com

I SPIT ON ELI ROTH

MIAMI PREMIERE / Midnight Mania
ABOUT THE FILM: Once upon a time three female filmmakers were lamenting the current state of the male-dominated horror genre over cosmopolitans at the annual Genghis Con convention when inspiration, propelled by a good vodka buzz, struck…
“Hey, why don’t we make a feminist horror film?” they mused.
The three in question were Paula Haifley (www.heyflea.com), Jane Rose (www.jane-rose.com) and Devi Snively (www.deviantpictures.com) who all had films screening at the annual Pretty-Scary Women in Horror Film Festival run by Heidi Martinuzzi (www.pretty-scary.net) and Amy Lynn Best (www.happycloudspictures.net)
Nursing a hangover on the ride home from Pittsburgh, Devi whipped up a script. A few months later, she returned to the Steel City to shoot the five-minute short with fellow horror filmmakers Jane and Amy and the special FX by Midian Crosby (http://www.monstersfrommidian.com).  Source: deviantpictures.com
CAST:  Amy Lynn Best, Jane Rose, Devvyl I. Signe, Aaron Arlof, and Lydia Fandry.

MEAT IS MURDER
9 minutes/US/English / Short Narrative/Dark Comedy
Director: Devi Snively

EAST COAST PREMIERE
ABOUT THE FILM: So like this mysterious meatloaf in the icebox is like killing people maybe…Bummer.
MEAT IS MURDER takes a post-modern satirical perspective of the deluge of unnatural, processed foods and hyper-consumerism in our society. Combining elements of Eugène Ionesco’s absurdist brand of existentialism and a contemporary approach to storytelling akin to Bertolt Brecht (replacing the traditional chorus with a TV commercial jingle), MEAT IS MURDER melds pop culture with social commentary and humorous pretension. Funded in part by the Indiana Arts Grant.  Source: deivantpictures.com/76/meatismurder
CAST:  Ken Dusek, Jr., Molly Emmons, Kevin McInerney, and Steven Barnett.
