'Billy Club' Hits it out of the Park!

"The kind of movie you can’t help but inflict on your friends. Destined to be a cult classic."
-Bob Etier, Technorati


LOS ANGELES, CA - August 31, 2013 - From the team that brought you the instant cult classic and horror fan favorite, Blood Junkie (2010), comes Billy Club, a new film that combines two of America’s favorite pastimes -- baseball and slasher movies!  Billy Club follows the story of a little league team that was torn apart by a gruesome triple homicide and the four friends who reunite 15 years later to pay tribute to their fallen coach and teammates.  A mystery unfolds as the secrets from their past return to haunt them, and a vengeful killer, hidden by an antique umpire’s mask, returns to even the score.

Billy Club is proud to announce the world premiere screening of our film at the 2013 Milwaukee Film Festival. Join us on Tuesday October 1st 2013 (10pm) at the historic Oriental Theater in Milwaukee, WI for the world premiere of Billy Club. More information and tickets available soon at www.mkefilm.org (Additional screenings on Oct. 7th and 8th.)

Award winning artwork: Our collaboration with the outstanding design team Dog & Pony has produced some amazing principle artwork for Billy Club.  The 19th Annual Communicator Awards has honored our Billy Club poster campaign with its prestigious Award of Distinction.  Check out all three posters and our official teaser at www.BillyClubMovie.com

About the Filmmakers:  Billy Club Co-Creators Drew Rosas and Nick Sommer began their collaboration with their previous feature-length project Blood Junkie, which was hailed by Mark Borchardt of American Movie fame as “A glorious tribute to the bombastic realm of 80s culture and horror cinema.” Blood Junkie was picked up for distribution by Troma Entertainment, it screened in several festivals across the globe, and was selected as one of the Top 5 Horror Films of 2011 by Bloody Disgusting’s Lauren Taylor.

About the Film:  A one-of-a-kind indie adventure ride through northern Wisconsin.  As both a mind-bending mystery and a breakthrough genre film, Billy Club showcases a passionate collaboration of extremely talented producers, actors and artists, including a memorable role by actor Mark Metcalf (Animal House, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) as The Umpire. Chock-full of psychological twists, hilarious characters, and unforgettable kill scenes, Billy Club stands out as an inspiring example of indie horror filmmaking at its best. Currently in the final stages of color timing, Billy Club is slated for a world premier in late Summer 2013.
