Spooky Movie International Film Festival: Exclusive Interview w/ PLAY DEAD Co-Directors, Teller and Shade Rupe!!
Day 2 of the Spooky Movie International Film Festival offered a unique experience as the first full length feature that night came in the form of a filmed live theatre performance. What film do I speak of? PLAY DEAD, of course!

Check it out! (more…)
