Local Horrors: Blood Bath 2: The Film Festival, Nov. 13-14

Blood Bath 2: The Film Festival

Indie horror fans rejoice! Blood Bath 2: The Film Festival is coming to the Texas Theater, November 13-14. The festival, called “a celebration of independent horror cinema” will feature numerous shorts from around the world and will showcase six films, including two made here in Texas.

Making its world premiere on Saturday night will be “Kodie”, a film shot here in Dallas by directors Abel Berry and Jennifer Stone. “Kodie” is the story of a paranormal investigator who encounters a murderous little girl named Kodie in the form of a teddy bear.

Also making its world premiere at the festival will be “The Super”. Directed by Brian Weaver & Evan Makrogiannis, “The Super” introduces us to George Rossi, the superintendent of a Queens apartment building who finds himself quickly slipping into a depraved world that is fueled by the tenants of the building.

Making its American premiere that weekend is “Fell”. “Fell”, directed by Marcus Koch has been described as, “a challenging, relentless exploration of psychological turmoil, the fragility of the human mind and a startling depiction of tragic mental breakdown” says writer, James Gracey. “Fell” stars Jeff Dylan Graham.

Other featured films include “Exhibit A-7”, the Canadian cult classic, “Dead Hooker in a Trunk” and “Walking Distance” from Houston filmmaker Mel House. There will be Q&A sessions following each of the features.

Additionally, genre favorites Debbie Rochon and Reggie Bannister (both appear in “Walking Distance”) will be in attendance as well as other genre actors and filmmakers.

The doors will open at noon both days with Saturday’s festivities topped off with an after-party at Muddy Waters. Tickets are $7 per feature-length film, $15 per day, or $25 for the weekend. They will be available for advance sales online or at the door.

Dubbed, "TerrorScribe" by a former editor, Joe made the conversion to horror sometime in the mid-2000s. Little did he know he'd favored the genre all of his life. When not struggling with short stories, he provided genre film reviews for local entertainment sites and later genre sites who could suffer his cynical views.

It was that same cynicism - and some might say hubris - that lead him to have a brief flirtation with filmmaking. His first two efforts, "Annotated" and "Antes Que Seja Tarde (Before It's Too Late)" both premiered at a local H.P. Lovecraft film festival. A third short, "Survivor Girl" proved to be his undoing though plans are in the works to revived the cursed project.

Born and raised in Dallas, TX., Joe now resides in a small Texas town. Statistics say more dead bodies turn up in small towns that big cities... though he claims to have NOTHING to do with that.
