WORLD THEATRICAL PREMIERE ANNOUNCED

Very excited to announce that THE SHUTTERBUG MAN will have its world theatrical premiere at the FRIGHT NIGHT THEATRE, Februrary 7th.

It will play at the start of the night, setting the chilling stage for the feature film that found its way on to many “Best Of” lists in 2014, the Australian feature THE BABADOOK.

It’s an evening of nasty monochrome bogeyman, and it’s sure to be great way to reveal THE SHUTTERBUG MAN to the world of film festivals.

RUE MORGUE MAGAZINE Praises THE SHUTTERBUGMAN

More great press for the film. Here’s what April Snellings at RUE MORGUE MAGAZINE has to say:

“Many filmmakers struggle to do in ninety minutes what Chris Walsh does in four and a half. The Shutterbug Man delivers the nasty, efficient shocks of a well-told horror tale, even as it turns its grimy lens on the very process of conjuring bogeymen from the shadows. It’s a beautifully shot, meticulously handcrafted nightmare.”

CHUCKY Likes THE SHUTTERBUG MAN

Among his many cinematic feats, TOM HOLLAND co-wrote and directed Child’s Play, the film that gave birth to Chucky- one of the most terrifying puppets in cinema. So with that in mind, I’m so excited to share Tom’s take on THE SHUTTERBUG MAN, in advance of its release on Wednesday: “Experimental film at its best…stop motion and puppets makes it wonderfully weird and Barbara Steele gives it tone and resonance along with a terrific sound job”

THANKS, TOM!!

Praise From Horror Master MICK GARRIS

Some wonderfully kind words from Mick Garris (creator of Masters of Horror and Fear Itself), in advance of the film’s release:

“Chris Walsh’s minimalist, monochromatic puppet animation is a canny and creepy observation of viewers (like me) with tastes that are bit on the bloodthirsty side. In four minutes, he takes the retro and makes it modern, boosted tremendously by Barbara Steele’s elegant narration and Chris Alexander’s atmospheric score, woven like an elaborately designed Persian rug.”

THANKS, MICK!!!
