Oh, my God. What have I done?
When I first interviewed horror film aficionado and first-time filmmaker Paul Blevins way back in May, he expressed interest in renting a theatre to screen his cinematic creation, True Love Zombie, for all to see. At the time I told him it sounded like a great idea never once thinking that he'd actually do it.
I was only joking, Paul! And did you have to include a blurb from this reporter on the promotional filer? Think of my reputation!
Seriously, I am delighted to report that TLZ will hold its world premiere at Landmark's 66-year-old Ken Cinema at 11:45pm on Friday, October 26. Meet Paul, his vivacious bride (and co-star, Rhonda) and all the assorted Lakeside zombie-lovers who helped to make his dream come true.
Tickets are only $5.00 and go on sale 30 minutes prior to showtime. Get a designated driver and head over to The Ken to help send a local filmmaker a little love by supporting his effort.
Congratulation, Mr. Blevins. I hope you pack the place!
