Texas-based writer/director Mel House and producer/actor James LaMarr sent up the word that their new feature WALKING DISTANCE will have its premiere screening next week. The movie is a last-minute addition to the currently running Dallas International Film Festival.
WALKING DISTANCE will screen Thursday, April 15 at 10:30 p.m.; tickets are now on sale at the festival’s official website. “Earlier this week,” LaMarr says, “we received a call from the festival asking us if WALKING DISTANCE was complete yet, because they were holding onto a great film slot and really wanted us to do a surprise world premiere at their fest—next week! Turns out we had literally just finished it and are going to make it happen. This is huge news, as DIFF is a giant, first-class, star-studded, red-carpet-event festival…To get this unsolicited invitation is an honor, and a testament to the strength of this project. We are the only American horror film showing at the festival, which includes almost 200 other films.”
Attending the screening and taking part in a Q&A afterward will be House and LaMarr, along with cast members including FRIDAY THE 13TH’s Adrienne King, 24’s Glenn Morshower, Denton Blane Everett, former FANGORIA spooksmodel Shannon Lark, Todd Farr, Eryn Brooke and Natali Jones. WALKING DISTANCE, which also features PARANORMAL ACTIVITY’s Katie Featherston, Fango fave Debbie Rochon, TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE’s Kathy Lamkin, PHANTASM’s Reggie Bannister and SWEATSHOP’s Melanie Donihoo and Peyton Wetzel, is set in an exclusive suburban community where everything is perfect—until a series of strange events turns the place into a living hell.
The festival, which runs through Sunday the 18th, will also be honoring genre-veteran filmmaker Frank Darabont with its Dallas Star Award. See WALKING DISTANCE’s trailer below and its official site here.
