SXSW Preview: Beaver Dam Helmer Returns With Stage Fright, Two Looks at the Killer

Stage Fright SXSW posterAlthough Jerome Sable had been directing short films for a few years, it wasn't until The Legend of Beaver Dam that he caught our attention with his amusing 12-minute horror-comedy.

Now, Sable has made the leap to features with Stage Fright, a new film playing to SXSW audiences one week from tomorrow (March 10th) and we've received some new stills that put the spotlight on the masked killer.

Alie MacDonald, Douglas Smith, Minnie Driver and Meat Loaf star.

When teenager Camilla Swanson, a starry-eyed kitchen hand, lands herself a role in the Broadway-bound showcase at the musical theater camp where she works, blood starts to spill.  The camp is being terrorized by “Metal Killer,” a masked slasher who screams death metal rock while hunting down every last pretentious cast member of the show.‚Äč

Magnet is releasing the film in its Ultra VOD program, launching it on iTunes and On Demand on April 3rd, followed by a theatrical release on May 9th.
