TRAILER FOR CAESAR & OTTO'S DEADLY X-MAS FOLLOWS SELECTION FOR ELVIRA'S HORROR HUNT, HORRIFIC FILM FEST
August 21, 2012 (Los Angeles, CA) - The long awaited trailer for Caesar and Otto's Deadly XMas, the latest film by Dave Campfield, who Josh Pasnak of Video Graveyard hails as "one of the more impressive talents to come out of the indie scene in a while," has been released following the announcement of it's selection as one of the seven feature films selected for Elvira's Horror Hunt. The film will screen the weekend of September 7-9 in Indianapolis, Indiana, at HorrorHound Weekend, one of the countries biggest horror, sci-fi, and fantasy film conventions, with the Mistress of the Dark herself on hand to award the contest winners, whose fate will be decided by a panel of horror industry professionals.
Poking fun at the 1980s wave of Christmas slasher films, Caesar and Otto's Deadly XMas, directed by Dave Campfield and produced by Campfield, Rich Calderon, Joe Randazzo, and Robin Ritter, is a horror parody the likes of which hasn't been seen since the days of Abbott & Costello. Ain't It Cool News says that "Like Abbott & Costello before them, Caesar and Otto bring genuine humor to the horror genre." Titular brothers Caesar and Otto (Dave Campfield and Paul Chomicki) find themselves employed at Xmas Enterprises Inc. where, a disgruntled employee in a Santa suit (former CKY frontman Deron Miller) has begun a killing spree. Now it looks like he's found himself the perfect patsies.
Caesar and Otto's Deadly XMas features a ensemble cast of some of the all time great B movie stars including former CKY and current World Under Blood frontman Deron Miller, "Sleepaway Camp" star Felissa Rose, Brinke Stevens, Joe Estevez, Troma CEO Lloyd Kaufman, Debbie Rochon, and Linnea Quigley in a role that lampoons her death scene in "Silent Night, Deadly Night." These legends join a cast of up and coming talent such as Paul Chomicki, Ken MacFarlane, Samantha Barrios, and Summer Ferguson, and youtube sensations Lauren Francesca, and Shawn "Coolduder" Phillips, most recently seen in The Asylum's "The Haunting of Whaley House."
The film will also be screening at the Alamo Drafthouse in San Antonio, Texas on Sunday, September 2 at 12:45pm as part of the Horrific Film Festival, where it has received 4 nominations including Best Feature Film, Best Director, Best Actor (Campfield), and Best Actress (Summer Ferguson).
