FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SANTA CLARITA (March 20, 2012)—With picture locked and in the final stages of sound and music design, the independent feature film HUFF from Windchaser Pictures has been selected to premiere at Texas Frightmare Weekend, the Southwest’s Premiere Horror Convention taking place in Dallas May 4-6, 2012.
HUFF, a clever adaptation of the classic bedtime story “The Three Little Pigs,” stars Charlie O’Connell (“The Bachelor, Season 7”) as Virgil “Huff” Huffington (the “wolf”), a sexually abusive stepfather who embarks on a rage-induced killing spree as he pursues his three stepdaughters (the “three pigs”) who have run away with his money intended for a big drug deal.
“The folks at Texas Frightmare Weekend requested a screener of our rough cut and we were happy to oblige,” says Executive Producer and Writer Cort Howell. “The fact that they selected our film based on an early, unfinished edit tells us that our hard work has paid off.”
The film features a cameo appearance by Clint Howard (Apollo 13, Evilspeak, “Star Trek”) who is currently scheduled as a special guest at the fan-oriented film festival.
An early review from WhySoBlu.com hails Huff as “a sickening twist to a childhood favorite.” As Huff, O’Connell “really shines.” And in the role of Huff’s wife, scream queen Elina Madison turns in a “chilling performance.” (http://whysoblu.com/huff-2012-rough-cut-movie-review/)
Praise is also lavished upon the trio of rising young stars in the roles of the step-daughters: Marie Bollinger (Hell-o-ween), Jenna Stone (A Haunting in Salem), and big screen newcomer Elly Stefanko.
HUFF is expected to appear in other festivals followed by a formal release in September 2012.
