Stage Fright Red-Band Trailer

Based on this Stage Fright red-band trailer, if you infuse the classic ’80s slasher formula with a little bit of Glee and some of the revisionist energy of Scream, you get Stage Fright. (No relation to the 1987 film of the same name.) The shocker is set in a camp for theater kids where the production of one play turns into the catalyst for a series of killings that are rooted a decade in the past.

If you’re coming to this just for the horror, the red-band trailer below suggests that there’s some gory stuff within. Which is to say: if you don’t like blood, this trailer isn’t for you. If you do want to see the red stuff, stick with this trailer until the end. Read More »

Horror has always been a genre where going meta was met with success. Some recent examples, of course, are found footage movies like The Blair Witch Project or Paranormal Activity as well as the self-referential nature of the Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer films. The new film, Stage Fright, takes that kind of meta-self-awareness even further. It’s a film about found footage that’s being turned into a film. Basically a movie, within a movie, within a movie. Directed by Chris Lofing, this independent film is aiming at an October release. Check out the trailer, as well as some stills and two posters, after the jump. Read More »
