Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 17, 2007
One of the creepiest and most controversial horror movies of the year, "Bryan Loves You" has officially gone mum. After several recent sabotage efforts by protestors, the movie about the true 1993 story of a cult that takes over an Arizona town is being kept quiet until its World Premiere. Stars of picture include Tony Todd ("Candyman", Star Trek), George Wendt ("King of the Ants", Cheers), Tiffany Shepis ("Abominable", "Ted Bundy") and Daniel Roebuck (Rob Zombie's "Halloween", Lost). Written/directed by Seth Landau in his horror debut and produced by his Landau Motion Pictures (LMP).
LMP is silencing the movie for now because of: a phony casting call planted in The Arizona Republic during last summer's production that nearly stalled the shoot (as reported by Page Six); stolen footage from the post-production laboratory that was posted online; and just last week when an eerie video was mailed to the LMP Los Angeles p.o. box accompanied by a threatening letter (the video was posted to http://www.youtube.com/user/LMPhellagoodmovies ).
"For now we're keeping all info about the picture under wraps," says LMP media liaison Jeff Buckner, "While we're not afraid of these onlookers who've tried to intimidate us, we're going to lay low for now." The movie is represented by Shoreline Entertainment ("The Signal", "Shadow Puppets"), and the company is currently setting up a World Premiere at a to-be-named film festival for sometime this fall. An announcement will be made once a date has been secured. Says writer/director Landau: "While we can't reveal exactly when or where the World Premiere will be just yet, bet the house it's going to be a huge event. We're aware, for better or worse, that a lot of eyes are on us."
In advance reviews, "Bryan Loves You" is called a "striking and disturbing feature with shades of 'A Clockwork Orange'" by Arrow in the Head News; an "indie gem" by Horror-Movies.ca; and "an Orwellian nightmare for the YouTube generation" by Blogcritics.org .
