Exclusive “SMOTHERED” photos: Bill Moseley as Freddy Krueger (?!); sneak preview newsMovies/TV,News Michael Gingold
What happens when slashers get slashed? That’s the question posed by SMOTHERED, an all-star horror/comedy that sees Bill Moseley donning Freddy Krueger-esque garb, and has a special sneak preview at next month’s Mad Monster Party convention in North Carolina. Read on for the details and exclusive Moseley photos!
Written and directed by John Schneider (yes, THE DUKES OF HAZZARD’s Bo Duke!), SMOTHERED turns the tables on the usual fright formula as a group of actors who have made their names as screen slayer icons are preyed upon by a murderous trailer-park gal (Brea Grant). The lineup also includes FRIDAY THE 13TH perennial Kane Hodder, HALLOWEEN 5 Shape Don Shanks, R.A. Mihailoff, who took the title role in LEATHERFACE: TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE III, and CHRISTINE’s Malcolm Danare, along with that film’s eponymous car. SMOTHERED receives its first public unveiling at Charlotte, NC’s Mad Monster Party, running March 21-23 at the Hilton Charlotte University Place (8629 JM Keynes Drive). Schneider, Moseley, Mihailoff and Shanks will be on hand for the screening, which takes place at 8:43 p.m. on Friday the 21st; see the event’s official website for more details. Watch SMOTHERED’s trailer below the pics, and look for more on the film in Fango #332, on sale next month, and at this site in the near future, and lots on Moseley in Fango #331, out very soon!
