PRLog - Feb. 21, 2013 - LAS VEGAS -- Murder headlines Las Vegas this weekend as the horror/comedy rappers MC Randumb & Jewish Dave team up with PollyGrind for two days of movies, music and mayhem that includes a visit from legendary director David Schmoeller and a chance for a fan to be “murdered” for a feature film.

It’s all a part of PollyGrind’s Second Annual St. Valentine’s Massacre at theatre7 (1406 South 3rd Street, Las Vegas, NV 89104), February 22-23. Schomeller (best known for Puppetmaster, Crawlspace and Tourist Trap), along with filmmakers Dave O’Shea, and James Vogel will be in attendance Friday as films of theirs are screened and celebrated, while MC Randumb & Jewish Dave, and DJ Day Won will perform Saturday.

The MC Randumb & Jewish Dave concert will be filmed for the upcoming mockumentary Project M. Produced by PollyGrind creator Chad Clinton Freeman and directed by Alex Colonna, Project M mixes elements of horror, crime and comedy with music for a look at society’s obsession with fame and violence. “The American Dream is dead. All there is left is Thug Life,” reads the film’s tagline.

Saturday’s show will be interactive with video clips and actors on stage during the songs. The night climaxes with audience members having the opportunity to be “killed” on camera by MC Randumb & Jewish Dave.

Screening Friday will include Schmoeller’s latest short film Ha, Ha Horror, O’Shea’s Day Job (a 2012 PollyGrind award winner for Best Exploitation Film and Best Use of Violence/Gore), Vogel’s The City and Julian Grant’s noir musical F*ckload of Scotch Tape.

With the recent rash of public shootings nationally and five incidents of high-profile crime on the Las Vegas Boulevard since December, some have questioned the morality of the Massacre Weekend. But Freeman says like his film festival, the event is all about the celebration of individuality, diversity, creativity and empowerment.

“Violence is a huge issue in our society, especially right now,” Freeman said. “Instead of turning a blind eye, we’re looking at it, questioning it, spoofing it and laughing at it. We are starting conversations. That’s taking a negative and making it positive. That is the PollyGrind way.”

Admission for both nights is $10, but anyone that dresses up in a costume for night two will get in free. Doors open at 5:15 p.m. Friday and 7 p.m. Saturday. The second night will include short films and refreshments before the 10 p.m. concert.

The PollyGrind Film Festival is currently taking entries for its 2013 event in October. Screening everything from arthouse to grindhouse, the festival has made a name for itself in three years as 50 of its official selections have gone on to land distribution. Gems discovered at past events include The Bunny Game, Slime City Massacre, Dear God No!, Daddy's Little Girl, Dead Hooker in a Trunk, Hate Crime, My Name is A by Anonymous and many more.
