Last month we learned that Magnet Releasing had picked up U.S. distribution rights to writer/director Jerome Sable's musical slasher STAGE FRIGHT, which is set to make its debut at the SXSW Film Festival this weekend, and today we have a very cool retro-styled poster for the flick to share with ya.
STAGE FRIGHT will mark the feature film debut of writer/director Jerome Sable, director of the award-winning, festival favorite short, “The Legend of Beaver Dam.”
STAGE FRIGHT is about a starry-eyed teenager Camilla Swanson who aspires to follow in the footsteps of her Broadway diva mother. Instead she's stuck working in the kitchen of a snobby performing arts camp. Determined to change her destiny, she sneaks in to audition for the summer showcase and lands a lead role in the play, but just as rehearsals begin, blood starts to spill, and Camilla soon finds herself terrified by the horror of musical theater.
The film stars Allie MacDonald and Douglas Smith, with Minnie Driver and Meat Loaf, and was produced by Ari Lantos and Jonas Bell Pasht of Serendipity Point Films.
Magnet will release the film in its Ultra VOD program, launching it on iTunes and On Demand on April 3 and following with a theatrical release on May 9.
