-- Gregory Blair’s hilarious new film GARDEN PARTY MASSACRE barely wrapped principal photography before winning a screenwriting award in the 2015 FANtastic Horror Film Festival. The festival celebrates and honors films in the horror genre and Blair walked away with the award for Best Screenplay in this year's screenplay competition. Blair's prior film, DEADLY REVISIONS won for its screenplay in last year's Terror Film Festival, so a trend seems in the making.
A longtime fan of horror comedy, Blair was eager to make his own contribution. “I think horror easily lends itself to comedy because the emotions are so high and the situations are often outrageous. I love films that successfully walk that line between horror and comedy, whether it’s witty and referential like Scream
or giddy low camp like Army of Darkness
.” GARDEN PARTY MASSACRE is Blair's take on the genre mash-up.
The story is a fast-paced, wacky romp in the vein of Shaun of the Dead
and Tucker and Dale vs. Evil,
telling the tale of a backyard gathering of friends that goes horribly awry when an unexpected guest arrives. With a pickaxe. And an attitude. The award-winning screenplay will be brought to life by such actors as Andy Gates (“The Young and the Restless”), Nichole Bagby (“Stupid Bitch”), Dawna Lee Heising (“Legend of the Red Reaper”), and even Blair himself (“Ooga Booga”).
