Bloodshed Deathbath’s highly acclaimed terror short “Shovel” has been picked up by the infamous American Horrors Channel for their weekly programming and 2019 film festival as a Special Invitation Selection.
“It is with great demonic pleasure that I have chosen Shovel, a twisted little fairy tale from hell, as our first Special Invitation Selection to be screened as part of the next American Horrors Film Festival, now in our 3rd year. We’ve had a stunning run of films at our last two shows and this year is going to be even WETTER.” Hart D. Fisher • American Horrors Film Festival Director
Director Ryan Policky, “Beyond excited to have our “Shovel” in American Horrors for 2019! It took a ton of sweat and tears to put together that little opus and to see it get a bit of love gives us a boost we for sure were looking for! Independent film making is not as easy as one would imagine and to see our vision get some distribution to the fans we love is a huge help!”
Shovel stars Aeona Cruz of Terror Tales, Amateur and Unmarked fame. The young actress excelled on set and remained unfazed and professional no matter how surreal or bloody the scenes became. Doug Newville (Dinner with Leatherface, Auto Shop of Horrors) played the beast himself and thrived within the role and became the demonic brute that is Shovel. Shovel also stars Benton Mckibben, Isaac Archuleta, Rodney Tidwell, Amanda Eldritch and Sara Eldritch
The unsettling soundtrack of Shovel was performed by the horror industrial group Genessier who ratchet the terror up like a taught garrote around your neck.
Shovel is available to the press for review on this private YouTube link (Media only please): https://youtu.be/p-0wbhe3qjM If you would like an interview with Shovel’s director, writer or a cast member please let us know and it will be arranged.
Shovel is dedicated to the memories of Sara and Amanda Eldritch who tragically took their own lives in a suicide pact.
