FearMaker Jeff Frumess To Premier New Feature Film ‘Romeo’s Distress’ At NJ HorrorCons’ Film Festival
Former Featured FearMaker Jeff Frumess has been hard at work finishing up his latest feature film, Romeo’s Distress, and now it’s ready to entertain the masses as it premieres at the NJ HorrorCons’ Film Festival on April 2nd at 7:45 PM.
Romeo’s Distress is a gothic tale of horror about James and his unrequited love for Jane (Anthony Malchar and Kimberley A. Peterson, respectively) and the sadistic response of her father Dale, played by Jeff Solomon (Long Island Serial Killer, Bastion). Is love a curse?
Jeff isn’t the only film being screened on April 2nd. Director Manny Serrano’s (Blood Slaughter Massacre, M is for Mastectomy) nightmare-themed Theta States will be showing directly before Romeo’ s Distress at 6:00 PM.
Starring NJ’s own Thomas Ryan (Faces, RAPT), Erin Brown (aka Misty Mundae – Masters of Horror, Strip Club Massacre) and Deana Demko (Ghosts of Angela Webb, Ironbound Vampire, Witches Blood), Theta States is about insomniac Danny (Ryan) who is prescribed an experimental audio therapy which soon causes him to suffer from wicked hallucinations and blackouts. The film features music from Philly’s own S&M Punk band GASH OFFICIAL, and NYC musician D. Catalano (aka Without You, I’m Hunting Them.)
In a coincidence, the two films will close out NJ HorrorCons’ Film Festival for their NJ Premiere, in contrast to having been two of the opening features for their collective World Premiere in January at The Macabre Faire Film Festival. At Macabre Faire, both films were nominated for multiple awards and Romeo’s Distress took home Best Screenplay, while Theta States was awarded Best Sound, Soundtrack and Audience Choice for Best Feature Film.
Frumess and Serrano, as well as members of the cast and crew from both films, will be in attendance for the films, and the convention weekend.
