Countless hours, tears, money and lost hair and I have actually achieved a major professional goal. Mass Hysteria the movie I wrote, has a distributor and a release date. Please watch the new trailer below and mark your calendars for October first!
Big shout out to our distributor The Horror Collective for picking up our labor of love. Here is their official description of the film:
When a tourist dies on Halloween night in Salem, the crowd seeks justice by mounting a modern-day witch hunt. With the low-key charm of SHAUN OF THE DEAD and the sophisticated sarcasm of WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS, MASS HYSTERIA is a dark comedy that conquers the horror of the Salem Witch Trials by juxtaposing it with the 2020 Covid pandemic and a funny, satirical story.
If you love indie film, please give our movie a watch. And review it as well! Most small projects live and die on word of mouth. And of course, Happy Spooky Season!
Not only did we get into IFFB, they gave us TWO SCREENINGS! Our last film had to sell out our first screening before we secured a second one. This is a huge vote of confidence in our direction for the film and we are so excited for the public to see it.
Our screening dates are:
Thursday April 25th @ 9:45 PM at the Somerville Theater
Monday April 29th @ 9:30 PM at the Brattle Theater
I am super beyond excited to announce that the film I co-wrote, Mass Hysteria, will be getting it’s world premiere at the Independent Film Festival Boston!
This is super amazing for several reasons. As a Salem based production, almost all of our cast/crew are from the area which means that they can enjoy their hard work on the big screen close to home. We actually premiered our first film, YouthMin, at IFFB2017 and got a wonderful response. We won the audience choice award and got a second screening because our first sold out. Hopefully we can repeat some of that magic! IFFB is a grand old time packed with fun people who love film.
While they haven’t released showtimes yet you can head on over to the official IFFB website to see the entire lineup!
Mass Hysteria is the second movie from my good friends’ production company. Both of which I had a hand in writing and creating. Unlike our first fundraising campaign, this one is exclusively for post-production work. We already filmed the movie in the month of August. Which means we actually have trailers and stills to show you and get you as excited about this project as we are.
