A Kabuki Killer at Musical Theatre Camp! The “STAGE FRIGHT” Red Band Trailer is Here
Jerome Sable’s THE LEGEND OF BEAVER DAM was a knockout short film that blended campfire horror story and rousing musical number into something unforgettable. For his feature debut, Sable is going even further, looking to explicitly engage a love and background of musical geekery for a slasher film set at theatre camp with plenty of blood spatter, dance numbers, a Kabuki mask and Meat Loaf.
In STAGE FRIGHT, which premieres this Monday, March 10 at SXSW before its April 3 VOD date (and May 9 cinema release), “starry-eyed teenager Camilla Swanson wants to follow in her mother’s footsteps and become a Broadway diva, but she’s stuck working in the kitchen of a snobby performing arts camp. Determined to change her destiny, she sneaks in to audition for the summer showcase and lands a lead role in the play, but just as rehearsals begin, blood starts to spill, and Camilla soon finds herself terrified by the horror of musical theatre.”
This looks fiercely fun, and Fango will have a whole lot more to share about the film this week in an exclusive chat with Sable and composer Eli Batalion.
