Horror-comedy will receive its world premiere at SXSW Film Festival

In the new horror-comedy Blood Fest, film fans flock to a festival celebrating the most iconic horror movies, only to discover that the charismatic showman behind the event has a diabolical agenda. As attendees start dying off, three teenagers with more horror-film wits than real-world knowledge must band together and battle through every madman, monstrosity, and terrifying scenario if they have any hope of surviving.

Blood Fest is written and directed by Owen Egerton and produced by Rooster Teeth, the Austin, Texas-based company responsible for the web series RWBY and the science fiction-comedy Lazer Team, among many other projects. The film stars Robbie Kay, Seychelle Gabriel, Jacob Batalon, Barbara Dunkelman, Tate Donovan, Nick Rutherford, Chris Doubek, Rebecca Wagner, and Zachary Levi.

Blood Fest will receive its world premiere at the SXSW Film Festival at Austin’s Stateside Theatre on March 9. You can learn more about the movie’s SXSW screenings at the festival’s official website.
