We last reported here about SCALENE, the rape-revenge shocker from independent genre director Zack
Parker. Now the movie’s completed and heading for its world premiere, and
Parker got in touch to talk it up.
SCALENE’s debut screening will take place Saturday, June 4
at Los Angeles’ Laemmle Sunset 5 (8000 W. Sunset Boulevard) as part of the 14th
annual Dances With Films festival; tickets can be ordered here. Scripted by Parker and
Brandon Owens, the movie is a “perceptual thriller,” focusing (from three
different points of view) on the rape of a female college student by a mentally
handicapped man, his subsequent incarceration and his mother’s revenge for that
imprisonment. ORPHAN’s Margo Martindale, HALLOWEEN’s Hanna Hall and Adam
Scarimbolo star, and will attend the screening with Parker.
“I’m very excited about premiering SCALENE at Dances With
Films,” Parker tells Fango. “It’s a festival I have been personally following

favorite theaters in LA. Compounded with the fact that all three lead actors
will be in attendance, as well as several other members of the cast and crew,
we couldn’t ask for a better screening.
“I’m also incredibly excited and pleased with how the film
has turned out,” he continues. “Margo, Hanna, and Adam really turned in
amazingly powerful performances. Also, I truly believe we have a very unique
film that challenges and sheds new light on the way films are seen and stories
