‘Headless’ World Premiere February 28th!
The ten-minute piece of footage so controversial it got Found banned in Australia is now a feature film. Due to overwhelming demand by fans of the original movie, Forbidden Films – the creative team behind Found – is collaborating with Gentleman Monster Productions to bring to life the complete, bloody story of Headless. The film makes its world premiere at Culture Shock in Indianapolis on Saturday, February 28th, 2015. An encore screening will be held at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater in Bloomington, Indiana, on Sunday, March 1st, at 7pm.
Found, the DIY horror darling that debuted on the festival circuit in 2012, made its mark on the indie scene as a boyhood tale with a bent toward the macabre. Based on the novel by Todd Rigney, Found built a blood-soaked masterpiece on a shoestring budget of just $8,000, going on to win 15 Best Feature awards, as well as numerous other awards for acting, directing, and cinematography. Fans of Found will remember Headless as the nasty little peek into a slasher movie that horrified two young friends with its amped-up blood and guts, its parade of topless women, and its iconic, machete-wielding villain. The feature-length version of this intense, gore-filled fantasy brings the gruesome and the psychedelic together in one gorgeous, grotesque, ultra-hardcore horror party.
Synopsis: The body count climbs as a skull-faced killer battles his inner demons in this retro-slasher epic.
Status: Headless makes its world premiere at Culture Shock, presented by Days of the Dead, at the Wyndham Indianapolis West, on Saturday, February 28th, 2015, at 9pm! An encore screening will take place at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater in Bloomington, Indiana, on Sunday, March 1st, 2015, at 7pm. Cast and crew will be in attendance for audience Q&A at both screenings. (Updated 2/10/15)
