Ready Teddy took home Best Short Film honors at Blood Bath 2: The Film Festival tonight. In the film, Brad Stephens plays Paul McCartney in a story filled with action, dark humor and enough blood to bathe in. Shot in the Dallas area, the film made its début earlier this year at the Trail Dance Film Festival, winning two awards including Best Dark Comedy.
The six-minute short screened earlier today to a very eager crowd of horror enthusiasts. In attendance were writer/director Jerod Costa and actors Mickey Finn (Elvis), Scott Barber (John) and Brad Stephens (Paul). Awards were presented this evening at the Texas Theatre in Oak Cliff, Texas.
The King of Rock-N-Roll is kidnapped by four Liverpudlian lunatics seeking the secret of That-Which-All-Men-Desire. Caught in a trap and can’t walk out, will our hero get all shook up? That’ll be the day! Not for the squeamish, Ready Teddy is a tale of blood, guts and peanut-butter-banana cuisine.
Blood Bath 2: The Film Festival is the 4th film festival organized and hosted by DOA Blood Bath Entertainment. This two-day event is a celebration of independent cinema in the horror and dark comedy genres. Details, trailers, posters, tickets, and much more can be found at http://www.doabloodbath.com.
