Fantasm Trailer Is Up and Running

I have been waiting for this documentary for a minute. I always have a blast at conventions, and am curious to see some of the ones that I am not able to attend. From what I can tell, most of these are East Coast, so I rarely make it to that side of the country. My interest is peaked.

From the press release.

"Filmmaker Kyle Kuchta is proud to present the official trailer for his horror convention documentary FANTASM. It can be viewed via YouTube at the following link:

Fantasm analyzes the tight-knit community that attends horror conventions in an exploration of how the genre brings fans together. "Fantasm was filmed over six conventions, and I felt myself growing closer and closer to the genre that we all love so much," says Kuchta. "It means a lot to be able to share that love with people, and that's what Fantasm is all about."

In addition to a variety of devoted fans, Fantasm features insight from popular horror actors and filmmakers, including Heather Langenkamp (A Nightmare on Elm Street), Tom Atkins (Escape from New York), Joe Lynch (Wrong Turn 2), Amanda Wyss (A Nightmare on Elm Street), Lloyd Kaufman (The Toxic Avenger) and more.

With production complete, Kuchta is currently focused on editing Fantasm. The documentary will be submitted to film festivals in the fall, with an official premiere to be announced. An abridged version of the film will screen for free at Syracuse University's Shemin Auditorium as part of the school's Class of 2013 Film Showcase on May 4th."
