The Eaters



"A Brooklyn band, General Malacarne, is practicing when once again, the power goes out. Little do they know that this blackout is unlike any other, and that while they relax and smoke up in the basement, everyone above ground is being transformed into vicious, undead eating machines. Will the band make it out of Brooklyn? Will they too become flesh eating monsters? Will their stash go dry? THE EATERS is the only horror comedy brave enough to find out."

Directed by Katie Carman and written by Elizabeth Lee, this independent horror film started playing on June 26th in New York at the Anthology Film Archives. I previously reported on The Eaters here and here, and is also currently featured in The Watchtower. But I felt it deserved another look, seeing as how I barely gave any information regarding its release or its source sites. You could say that I was a bit lazy when first reporting. "The Eaters was chosen as an official selection of The Long Island International Film Expo, and the NewFilmmakers Summer Series at Anthology Film Archives." Its last showing was on the 14th in Bellmore, New York, and is scheduled next on the 29th at at the Anthology Film Archives in New York. Go see it if it's near you. You can find more information on Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, and its official site of Cold Hand Productions here. I'll keep you posted on future showings and other details. It's just too bad the local film festivals here don't play hip shit like this.

Update: "Our New Filmmakers screening at Anthology got re-zeduled!! It was 7/29/09 but got moved to TUES. AUGUST 4th at 8PM. -Katie and Liz"

Thanks for the shoutout and for keeping us posted in the Watchtower! We'd love to screen in your city too, but failing that, we're hoping to get national distribution for THE EATERS very soon.
Brains,

Katie and Liz: I'll be on the lookout for any future (hopefully local) festivals, or if all else fails, catching it on DVD. I've updated the reschedule, and I'll keep an eye out for new shows. Thanks for stopping back. Hope all is going well for you two.

Geof: Glad you like the site, man. Much appreciated. Yeah, to be honest, I don't think the ROTLD series gets enough attention. Too overshadowed by Romero's. Thanks again.
