North Hollywood, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 10/22/2012 -- Zombies, maniacs, slashers, stalkers, hot girls and Comedian Tom Green headline the first online “Halloween Horror Movie Film Festival.” The festival features films by some of the best young up-and-coming directors and producers in Hollywood, whose work can be seen on “The Walking Dead,” “Funny or Die” and “Machinima.”
"At Zombie Go Boom, we don't pull any punches! We've been deemed "To Offensive" by AMC and "To Violent" for Resident Evil... so we wanted to feature movies that push the boundaries--that make you think, and, in some cases, may make you turn away from the screen." says Chuck Meré, Executive Producer of the "Halloween Horror Film Festival."
Joining the mayhem is comedian Tom Green who is known for his anything-goes run as the funniest, most unpredictable personality on MTV, and his unforgettable, deliciously loony roles in uproarious film comedies including "Road Trip" and "Freddy Got Fingered," and most recently noted for his new YouTube channel (and a world-wide comedy tour).
"I love smashing zombie heads with baseball bats and I love Zombie Go Boom," says Green.
The "Halloween Horror Film Festival" turns the film festival structure on its head by allowing fans to view the films for free right in their own homes.
"With our festival, fans get to watch the films for free, the filmmakers earn money based on the performance of their films and they never have to pay any fees. Plus, the films will be seen by an international audience. In the new digital age, we think it's a revolutionary new way to produce a film festival," says James Sweet, Executive Producer of the "Halloween Horror Film Festival."
