Chris Morrisseyâ€™s campy supernatural thriller Trick of the Witch will kick off its theatrical release with preview Midnight screenings at the Laemmle Sunset 5 Theatres in West Hollywood on March 4th and 5th — Followed by an expanded release on March 25, 2011 at the historic Vine Theater in Hollywood. New York and other cities will follow.
Fresh off of two â€śstanding room onlyâ€ť sold out screenings as the opening and closing night film of the 2010 New York International Independent Film Festival, Trick of the Witch won two major awards â€“ Best Horror Film and the Audience Favorite Award. â€śwe are extremely excited about the reaction the film got because the Audience Award came directly from the heart of the fansâ€ť says star Share Cherrie â€śpeople were coming up to me after the film saying they had so much fun watching the film. Itâ€™s definitely a crazy interactive movie that you must see with a crowd to get the full experience. Some people even compared it to Rocky Horror Picture Show which to me is the icing on the cake!â€ť
Trick of the Witch focuses on a group of fashion models fighting an evil witchcraft curse while stranded at a deserted mansion during a photo shoot. A sequel is already in development and will begin filming this summer once writer/director Chris Morrissey completes his new film Hollywood Reject. â€śI loved making Trick of the Witch and canâ€™t wait to start the sequel. There are so many avenues to explore and we already have another amazing mansion to film in to have the storyline continueâ€ť says Morrissey. â€śMy new film Hollywood Reject is a comedy so it will be a nice little break from doing horror but I am definitely looking forward to jumping back into the world of Trick of the Witch very soon.â€ť
Trick of the Witch marks Morrisseyâ€™s fourth feature film with star Share Cherrie – she will also appear in Hollywood Reject and Trick of the Witch Part 2.
