2004 SF IndieFest alum, THE HALFWAY HOUSE soon to be available on DVD

BV Entertertainment Announces DVD Release of THE HALFWAY HOUSE

North Hollywood, CA June 15, 2005
August 23, 2005, Skouras/Ventura will release
Kenneth J. Hall's horror/exploitation/comedy THE
HALFWAY HOUSE
on DVD, the first feature on BV
Entertainment's Fright Film Factory label. There
will be both an R-rated and an unrated director's
cut available at major rental and retail chains
throughout the US and Canada.

The movie has already attained a strong fan
following through festival screenings and received 4
1/2 out of 5 stars from Film Threat. Starring cult
queen Mary Woronov (ROCK N' ROLL HIGH SCHOOL, EATING
RAOUL) as an evil nun, it satirizes drive-in cinema
from women-in-prison films to slasher flicks.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Both DVD versions will include a trailer and the
music video "Halfway to Hell" by Insecto Circus.
Both will be widescreen 1.85:1 and Dolby Digital 5.1
stereo surround sound. The unrated cut will include
additional features such as an audio commentary
track by writer/director Kenneth J. Hall and
producer Ed Polgardy, deleted scenes, and a
making-of documentary entitled "Gut-Eating Monsters
from Hell."

HOLEHEAD Best Film & Event For Immediate Release

JAKE WEST'S EVIL ALIENS receives the award for Best Film at the 2005 (Yet) Another Hole in the Head Festival in San Francisco.
The film received a standing ovation at every screening, and a few people actually came to see all three screenings that week. West's phenomenal film would have won Best Comedy as well - if the Festival had a comedy category. www.jakewest.com

EVIL DEAD: LIVE! receives the award for Best Event at the 2005 (Yet) Another Hole in the Head Festival in San Francisco.
The gory, hilarious crowd-pleasing spectacle is a true labor-of-love. The final performance played to a packed house at the Victoria Theater. After the house lights came up (and the standing ovation died down) they anounced the next production - RE-ANIMATOR: LIVE! We can't wait. www.primitivescrewheads.com

The complete Audience Award rankings for every film will be posted soon.
