HALLOWEED (2016) Official Posters, Trailer and Stills
From the Press Release: He who has the weed has the power…
The official release trailer and three versions of the VOD poster for Halloweed are available now, courtesy of Screen Media Films, and the DVD release date has been set for November 8, 2016, announced the filmmaking team of Roberto Rosario, Jr., and Jayson Bernard of J&R Productions. Rosario executive produced, and Bernard produced the film along with co-producers Tatiana Chekhova, Jamie Trent, and LazRael Lison, who directed.
Halloweed is a comedy/stoner/slasher/mystery genre hybrid, starring Simon Rex, Shannon Brown, Jim O’Heir, Michelle Mueller, Jayson Bernard, Ray Wise, Jason Mewes, Deje Dee, Lester Speight, Danny Trejo, and Tom Sizemore. Written by Dale Zawada based on a story by Michael Bussan, it will be released on all VOD platforms and Cable On Demand by Screen Media Films on October 18th.
Halloweed is an homage to the slasher horror films I grew up with combined with the fun of buddy comedies and stoner films, with a bit of classic John Waters-inspired twisted humor added to the mix,” said Bernard. “Roberto and I had been looking for a comedy to produce as our first feature for J&R Productions, and when the project came our way, we knew this was the one,” he added.
“Jayson and I formed J&R Productions in Chicago and moved to California to set up shop when we started production on Halloweed,” said Rosario, Jr. “We have the best of both worlds now, with access to the immense pool of talent LA has to offer in front of and behind the camera, plus our longstanding relationships with the talented people in Chicago. We are thrilled that Screen Media Films is getting Halloweed out in such a big way.”
SYNOPSIS: Trent Modine and his goofball stepbrother, Joey, try to escape the infamy that comes from having a serial killer, The Candy Corn Killer, for a father (Tom Sizemore). Seeking a new start, they find refuge in the small town of Mooseheart. It does not take long before the besmirched family name catches up to them. Joey, a free-spirited stoner, and Trent, a lovesick pessimist, look like the main suspects after a string of murders, similar to a rash of killings 20 years earlier, coincidentally begins just as they arrive in town. It is a race against time because a slash-happy killer clown on the loose, and the bodies are piling up!
