Successful Houston-area screening, and new Festival Announcements!!!

On 23 September, 2014


On Saturday night, September 20th, the fruits of a couple of insane years’ hard labor were finally able to be shared with our hometown crowd.  The wonderful folks at Alamo Drafthouse Vintage Park were kind enough to share their space with us, and everyone there – Robert Saucedo, Randy Krinsky, Rachel (whose last name I never caught), and the entire waitstaff – was just amazing to us.pickaxe ticket

We played to TWO SOLD OUT CROWDS, and the reactions were INSANE!!!  We are extremely proud of this nasty little slasher flick, and the chaos has only begun!

We have received two reviews so far, and the reaction is very positive!  Check them out here:
