Jenny Hendrix in Mainstream Horror Flick Live Evil
Just in time for Halloween, PollyStaffle.com presents the Las Vegas premiere of "Live Evil" with a free screening at the Sci-Fi Center.
The one time only showing of this independent vampire action film, starring Tim Thomerson ("Near Dark," "Trancers"), Ken Foree ("Dawn of the Dead," "The Devil's Rejects") and Scream Queen Tiffany Shepis ("Chainsaw Cheerleaders," "Nightmare Man"), will be October 30th at 9 p.m.
The event will also feature giveaways, and Q&A and autograph sessions with the cast and crew.
Directed by Jay Woelfel and produced by Mark Terry, "Live Evil" tells the story of vampires having trouble surviving in a world where the blood supply has become polluted by drugs and STDs.
"I am basically a part time resident of Las Vegas, especially during football season," Terry said. " One of my goals was to have a screening here because if there was one city in the world that would 'get' this movie it would be Vegas."
The film gets a limited theatrical run starting September 18 via Monogram Releasing and will play 300 screens. It won't be seen in Vegas until Oct. 30 and makes it way to DVD and VOD (video on demand) on November 3.
"Live Evil" also stars Lee Perkins ("KatieBird*Certifiable Crazy Person"), Chuck Williams ("Bubba Ho-tep"), filmmakers Jeff Burr ("Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III") and Sean Cain ("Silent Night, Zombie Night"), Scream Queen Elissa Dowling ("Amateur Porn Star Killer 3D: Inside the Head"), Porn Star Jenny Hendrix ("Not Three's Company XXX") and more.
Fangoria Magazine has called "Live Evil" one of the top three low budget indie films they have caught this year and the St. Petersburg Times has said it is a cut above "the usual splatter flicks."
Located at the northwest corner of the Commercial Center (right off Sahara on 2520 State State, Las Vegas, NV 89109), the Sci-Fi Center is a comic book and film geek's paradise. Owned by William Powell, the store houses a true grindhouse movie theater dubbed "The Underground Screening Room" that showcases arthouse, horror, cult, science fiction, fantasy and independent cinema not usually available at traditional theaters in Sin City.
