Dark Scream Film Festival programmer Sylv Jenkins interviewed He’s Not Looking So Great’s producer and director Gregory G. Kurczynski and screenwriter Lynne Hansen for All About Film in preparation for the film’s UK premiere at the Dark Scream Film Festival April 9-11, 2015 in Portsmouth.
HE’S NOT LOOKING SO GREAT is now an official selection of the Dark Scream Film Festival in the UK! The programmers said the little preview screening we had Wednesday night went so well that they had to have us back for the big festival in May. They said everyone cheered at the end and that we were “a breath of fresh air within the horror film genre.” Not too shabby!
Details to follow, but in the interim, enjoy this preview video put together by the festival. (58 seconds in is particularly interesting. lol)
“He’s Not Looking So Great” has its first international screening! It’s been elected to be included as part of a small screening showcasing some of their favorite films from the current submissions to the Dark Scream Film Festival in the UK. The screening will take place on Oct. 8, 2014 in Portsmouth. We’ll share more details as we get them.
In the interim, enjoy the Dark Scream Film Festival trailer.
Join members of the cast and crew of “Chomp” as they read Lynne Hansen’s screenplay for “He’s Not Looking So Great” during the Doomsayers event in St. Petersburg, Florida on Wednesday, October 1st at 7:00 pm at Studio@620.
Two of the stars of “Chomp” will be taking on the largest roles in “He’s Not Looking So Great.” Kyle Porter, who plays Kyle Frost in “Chomp” will read the part of the self-absorbed lead Brad, (played in the actual short by Matt Story.)
Susan O’Gara, who plays Millie in “Chomp” will find herself in a much milder role as the narrator in the script.
Lynne Hansen, who wrote and directed “Chomp” and who wrote “He’s Not Looking So Great” will read the part of the determined Natalie (played in the film by Kat Lindsay.)
The cast for the script reading will be rounded out with “Chomp’s” associate producers, Jeff Strand, who will play the athletic Chuck (Max-Jay Dixon in the film) and Sally Bosco, who will play Chuck’s girlfriend Mary (Mallory Logan in the film.)
A crossover for the ages, this is not an event to be missed! And if that wasn’t enough motivation for you, the night will be rounded out with apocalyptic readings from other local authors, including Jeff Strand, who will be reading a solo piece as well.
More details on the event below. A portion of the proceeds go to Edible Peace Patch, a nonprofit that helps students in Title 1 schools in Pinellas build vegetable gardens.
