SHORT FILM “HELL’S BELLES” CONTINUES ITS RUN WITH 8 UPCOMING FESTIVALS
Hell’s Belles, the new short film written and directed by Christian Ackerman, began its 2012 film festival run at the Horrorfind Film Festival in Pennsylvania. It will screen at 8 other festivals in the coming months with many more to come.
The Horror-Comedy stars Ariel Teal Toombs (daughter of Pro Wrestler “Rowdy” Roddy Piper) and Mayra Rodriguez as inexperienced occult specialists called by the local Sheriff to help rescue a young girl from a sadistic demon from Hell. The film also stars Bonjah Kele, Trista Robinson, James Cavlo, Paul Gebeau, and Buffy Dakan.
Hell’s Belles’ Writer/Director, Christian Ackerman says, “I’m super-excited that Hell’s Belles has been included these great festivals! I can’t wait to see how it plays with new and different crowds!”
Although a standalone piece, the short was produced to promote Ackerman’s feature script of the same name. “I recently finished the first draft with my writing partner Chuck Foster. It features a full-scale demonic attack on a small town. It’s so much fun! I hope the short can gain enough momentum to get the script on the right desks this year!”
The film boasts Cinematography by Cameron Duncan (Longmire/Southland), Special FX by Dan Crawley (Battleship/Watchmen/Captain America/The Avengers) and Chris Hampton (The Hobbit Trilogy/True Blood), Production Design by Matthew Trotter (Tavis Smiley Show/Dead & Gone), Sound Design by Colin Rogers (Modern Family/Sons of Anarchy) and Score by Ken Jacobsen (games-The Amazing Spider-Man/Lost World 3).
