If you want a successful trailer for your movie, you have to incorporate the song “Ode To Joy” and you need a healthy amount of Meatloaf. That’s good news for the new horror and comedy hybrid Stage Fright then! Now when you hear that title, you might think of one of Hitchcock’s lesser known films. Or maybe the 1987 Italian slasher about a guy who kills people wearing an owl costume. But no my friends, this is an all new movie about a musical camp that is terrorized by a killer wearing a kabuki mask who hates the theater.
I’m sold on the poster and luckily if you are too, there’s a brand new red band trailer that just came out! Now a word of caution before you watch it because there are spoilers abound. Minnie Driver is in the movie and Minnie Driver according to the trailer, dies. Meatloaf is in the movie and Meatloaf might die as well. There’s a bukkake joke, so if you’ve already had your bukkake joke fill for the day, you might be disappointed. Some of the gore gags are also shown, but hopefully Stage Fright doesn’t blow it’s load in this trailer. It’s quite an impressive load though if it does. Stay tuned for more info and buzz because it will be screened at this weekend’s SXSW Film Festival and will hit VOD on April 3rd. Check out the red band goodness below!
