I doubt there were too many people who had Jerome Sable’s musical horror comedy Stage Fright on their minds going into SXSW this year, but now that this amazingly fun trailer has just released you can bet that has all changed! Musicals can be a bore, especially when there’s too much singing, so as long as the death count is higher than the musical numbers, I’d say this one should be plenty fun! It has an old school slasher vibe that looks to be throwing around plenty of the red stuff. Count me in!
And we won’t have to wait long to get our very own hands on it because Magnet has set the film up for an April 3rd VOD release along with a limited theatrical release on May 9th. Here’s what it’s about:
Stage Fright tells the story of a posh musical theater camp terrorized by a killer who hates musicals. Driver plays Kylie Swanson, a haunted star of the Broadway stage and mother of two siblings who find themselves at the center of the unfolding horror at the camp.
Minnie Driver, Meat Loaf, Allie MacDonald, Douglas Smith, Kent Nolan, Brandon Uranowitz, Ephraim Ellis, Melanie Leishman, James McGowan, Steffi DiDomenicantonio, Ryan Bobkin, Leanne Miller, and Adrianna Di Liello star.
