First time filmmakers Scooter Downey and Sean Elliot, in association with Greenhouse Studios and Spiderwood Studios, proudly made the Arizona premiere of It's In The Blood at the 2012 Phoenix International Horror & Sci-Fi Festival on Friday March 30th.
It's In The Blood, a character-driven horror story starring veteran character actor Lance Henriksen, was awarded the prize for Best Horror Feature at the 2012 Phoenix International Horror & Sci-Fi Festival. The film was also awarded the Grand Jury Prize at the Canada International Film Festival that same weekend.
In addition to these recent wins, the film has been an award winning feature selection at numerous festivals. Thus far, It's In The Blood has screened at nine festivals, and has already won two Grand Jury Awards, two Best Picture Awards, and one Best Actor Award.
Directed by Scooter Downey, It's In The Blood is a wholly unique cinematic movement. At its core, a father son story, the film is a deconstruction of the prototypical "creature feature", incorporating elements of mystical realism and psychological thriller. This new motion in film is called a Psyche-Saga. Lance Henriksen stars in this nightmarish descent into the wilderness, the very heart of darkness where more than your guilt can eat you alive.
Best known for his roles as Karl Bishop Weyland in the Aliens franchise and Frank Black in the TV series Millennium, Lance Henriksen has amassed a resume that would put most actors to shame in a career spanning more than 50 years. Lance has worked with some of the greatest directors of all time, including James Cameron, Steven Spielberg, and Sidney Lumet, and his characters have been killed by some of Hollywood's greatest monsters, including the Terminator, the Predator and the Alien. With 15 projects in 2011, this versatile actor shows no signs of slowing down.
Between April 18th and May 11th, It's In The Blood will be screening at ten separate festivals across the country, including showings in Los Angeles, New York, Michigan, North Carolina, and South Dakota. Please visit the official website to locate a screening near you.
That trailer is pretty slick. There are a quite a few 'wtf' teases going on in it. Plus, let's face it, it's got Lance Henriksen. The man is a goddamn rock star. This needs to come DVD stat.
