Children Of Sorrow Wins Again; Oberst Kills Again

(Nov 21, 2012) Director Jourdan McClure’s Children Of Sorrow has won the top prize at Hollywood’s Shockfest Film Festival. The found-footage horror feature about a desert cult received The Shocker Award following its Los Angeles premiere at Shockfest.

Bill Oberst Jr. won the Best Actor Award for his role as cult leader Simon Leach in a surprise win over better-known nominees Tom Sizemore and Joe Esteves, brother of actor Martin Sheen. The Shockfest awards, in the form of ghoulish decapitated zombie heads created by make-up artist Shaun Martin, were awarded in a midnight ceremony in Hollywood at historic Raleigh Studios.

It’s the second time in a row that Children Of Sorrow has had multiple wins at a festival. McClure’s movie won Best Feature and Best Acting awards in it’s first showing at the Sacramento Horror Film Festival last month. For Bill Oberst Jr. the Best Actor win is his third major award of 2012, following a Daytime Emmy Award for Facebook’s Take This Lollipop and the Golden Cobb Award for Best Rising B-Movie Actor.

In the film’s first published review, film critic Mike Thomas gives Children Of Sorrow 5 stars, calling it “a study in true horror.” McClure says that Children Of Sorrow will continue to make the festival rounds with an eye towards a 2013 release date.

Children Of Sorrow brings Oberst’s onscreen death count to 75, by methods ranging from cannibalism in 2009’s Dismal to a fireman’s axe in the just-wrapped horror feature Ditch, now in post for a 2013 release.
