First Clip: All About Evil

Watch the scarily camp-tastic first clip from Joshua Grannell‘s debut horror feature All About Evil, featuring a diabolical Natasha Lyonne and her Satanic cronies bedeviling a poor Ariel Hart who only wants to live another day. Although clearly filmed somewhat tongue-in-cheek, there’s a genuine sense of dread and menace in this short, one-minute excerpt.

Although more well known for her personal troubles than her acting lately, Lyonne reaches deep into her dark side to star as Deborah Tennis, a mousy librarian who inherits her uncle’s failing movie theater and quickly realizes there’s only one thing that can save the family business: Blood! After becoming a local sensation for the grisly “realism” in the movies she starts directing — although that realism comes from the fact that she’s actually murdering people for real — Deborah becomes more frantic about finding fresh victims the more popular her work becomes.

If you like what you see above, between now and late November, All About Evil is touring the country playing at various film festivals and special screenings. At some of these events, Grannell will also appear as his lovely alter ego, Peaches Christ. While more screenings are continually being added — including a recently announced screening at the Toronto After Dark Film Festival — below is a list of current dates as of this writing.
