(Hollywood, CA) February 5th, 2018 – Roman Media Inc. is thrilled to announce the release of Michelle Romano’s directorial debut entitled “Blood Bride”. The 14-minute horror film was produced for the Annual Massive Blood Drive PSA, a collection of shorts curated by the Soska Sisters. Filmed in Los Angeles, this campy dark comedy was directed and produced by Romano herself, who plays the title role; written, edited and scored by Corey Tourigny, who plays the husband; and co-executive produced by genre filmmaker Patricia Chica, an alumni of the Women in Horror Month movement. The lead stars are Robert Catrini (Jack Reacher: Never Go Back) and Jennifer Jostyn (House of 1000 Corpses).
“Blood Bride” tells the story of a husband going the extra mile to save his wife’s life, even if it means risking his own.
The short also features a group of actresses from the indie horror community including Heather Grace Hancock (Wicked City), Sarah French (My Uncle John is a Zombie) and Renee Dorian (The Funhouse Massacre). Co-Producers: Chris Clancy and Cristina Malavenda. Associate Producer: Camille Fadl. Key Makeup & Hair: Kimberly Shawn Geier. Special FX Makeup: Cindy Cullom and Tessa Philbrick.
