HOST came out of the blue as a project for us. In 2007, I was attending a television broadcasting conference and jokingly asked representatives from a large electronics corporation to support my next film. Without flinching they said, 'Okay.' I immediately called my writing partner and told him we were going to make a movie in the next few months, so be ready when I got back!

The horror film HOST produced by Arkansas-based Film & Television Production Company Dreaded Enterprises Unlimited, Inc. has been accepted for on-line distribution by Miami, Florida-based Big Star TV, LLC. The deal with Big Star mark's DEU's move into mainstream film distribution.

HOST was co-written, produced and directed by DEU's founder H. Wolfgang Porter along with his long-time writing partner, Calvin N. Roach. The short film was the writing team's first foray into the horror genre and is a dark comedy spoofing Reality TV and torture-themed horror films like 'Fear Factor' and 'SAW'.

Four months later, the finished screenplay was shot on-location in Blytheville, Arkansas. HOST was completed in time to compete and receive 1st Runner-up for Best Short Film at the 2007 Full Moon Horror Film Festival in Little Rock, Arkansas. Months later at San Antonio's Horrific Film Fest 2008, the surprisingly scary spoof about a kidnapped Thug-for-Hire competing on a deadly game show took the top honor for Best Short Film. With some hard won awards attached to the film, it was suggested to Mr. Porter by a festival organizer to immediately approach Big Star TV.

"I sent HOST to Big Star's representatives and they enthusiastically wanted it for their line-up of independent films. Big Star handles a thousand US and Foreign made films. They also keep a presence at some major film festivals so it was good to get picked up by them. It was also nice to confirm what my team and festival audiences already knew, that HOST is a great film and the world should see it! -- H. Wolfgang Porter

HOST stars John Littlefield and Pamela Faye. The film can be rented or purchased at: http://www.bigstar.tv. To learn more about HOST go to: http://www.dreadedenterprises.com/Screen.
