"HazMat" To Have Its World Premiere at The 2013 Massachusetts Independent Film Festival
Independent filmmakers are screening the supernatural slasher "HazMat" in Cambridge, MA and serving up big scares with their film.
“The film is about one of those hidden-camera prank shows,”
Executive Producer Andrew M. Feldman further explains. “It takes place entirely in an abandoned chemical factory that is believed to be haunted. Once the chump becomes the hunter, they are trapped inside and cannot get out.”
The story has an underlying commentary about reality TV and the lengths to which shows (especially prank shows) will go to get ratings. “
The film has already received rave reviews from several online reviewers, who are impressed with the film’s ability to scare despite its low budget. The consensus seems to be that the film is very original and refreshing in a subgenre of horror that has gotten a very bad reputation for bad films "HazMat is lethal entertainment full of tension, suspense and non-stop action with some very cool kills and plenty of blood,”
The TV crew is played by Todd Bruno, Aniela McGuinness, Giordan Diaz, Tom Stedham, Mario Nalini and Dennis Spain. The three co-conspirators that set up their friend on the prank are played by Gema Calero, Daniela Larez, and Reggie Peters. The victim/villain is played by Norbert Velez, who brilliantly brings the murderer to life, despite being covered from head to toe. Although the film has no recognizable names, the acting is stellar and above what we have come to expect in indie horror. “
The film was shot over ten days in an abandoned government building in Miami, Florida. It was done with what is considered a micro-budget by Hollywood’
“This was a labor of love for all of us who worked on it. That is the reason why we were able to complete the entire film for such a low budget and on time,”
The audiences at this year’s Massachusetts Independent Film Festival will be the first to be able to see the film on the big screen, but audiences can follow the movie as it makes its film festival run. It might come to a film festival near them.
