New Trailer: WORLD’S WORST SATANISTS SUMMON LAUGHS, GORE IN NEW SHORT ‘BORN AGAIN’
“We wanted to go back to our ‘80s horror roots, when you could get a laugh with your
blood splatter,” said Jason Tostevin, who directed and co-wrote. “And of course we
wanted to push the boundaries of taste – I’m pretty sure we’ll offend some folks.”
The short stars award-winning actor and indie horror icon Ellie Church (Frankenstein
Created Bikers, Harvest Lake, Time to Kill) as the pregnant leader of the cabal,
returns veteran Brian Spangler (Progeny) and introduces Randall Greenland as “Doug,”
the affable screw-up who might just have ended the world.
“We had a dream team in terms of talent, starting with Ellie, who is poised to
explode,” said Tostevin. “She was so fun to have on set, is an excellent actor, and
has hilarious comedic timing.”
Born Again is the newest film from the championship team at Hands Off Productions,
whose past shorts include the hundred-fest crime drama A Way Out starring Bobby
Costanzo (Total Recall, Die Hard 2), the Twilight-Zone-inspired I Owe You (Cinema
Constant’s 2015 Indie Short of the Year) and their last hit horror-comedy, ‘Til
Death (included in the anthology feature Seven Hells).
The short will have September advance screenings at select independent film events:
Days of the Dead (Louisville, Sept. 2) Horror Hound (Indianapolis, Sept. 10) and the
Austin Revolution Film Festival (Sept. 20-24). It will also screen with cast and
crew at the Nightmares Film Festival, being held at Gateway Film Center in Columbus,
Ohio Oct. 20 to 23, before heading on to a festival circuit tour.
