Alabama filmmaker Jay Burleson takes to the festival trail with his nostalgic horror film THE NOBODIES.
The film is being made available as part of their crowd funding campaign for their next film, Unfinished Business. You can get more information about that here.
SYNOPSIS — In 1993, Alabama based amateur filmmaker Warren Werner shot his first feature film, Pumpkin, on VHS. With a budget of only $600, a cast of friends, family, and unknown talent, the movie premiered at the local civic center and generated an immediate backlash from the community; rumors that Warren and his girlfriend Samantha Dixon engaged in Satanic rituals began to spread throughout town. In the months following the premiere, Warren and Samantha committed suicide. The following year, another group of filmmakers began shooting a documentary about the deaths of Warren and Samantha– this documentary project was never completed, and Pumpkin was never released.
The Nobodies is Warren Werner’s Pumpkin, in it’s entirety, cut together with the remaining documentary footage of the director’s life and death.
The cast includes such familiar faces as Lane Hughes (You’re Next, VHS, A Horrible Way to Die, and Pop Skull), as well as Bill Pacer, Hannah Hughes (VHS 2 & Pop Skull), and Danny Vinson (The Walking Dead) as well as Bart Hyatt, Henry Gilliland, Zach Harding, Neva J. Howell, and Ashlen Kurre.
