Dustin Wayde Mills, the director that brought you the award-winning 2019 horror/comedy SLAUGHTERHOUSE SLUMBER PARTY, has announced the voice cast for the upcoming remake of his first feature THE PUPPET MONSTER MASSACRE!  In 2010, Mills released his debut feature THE PUPPET MONSTER MASSACRE. Now 10 years later–and with dozens of features, short films, and music videos under his belt–Mills is planning an epic remake of his first feature with all-new creatures and puppets, and an all-new story! The project’s Kickstarter campaign is in its final six days with just under 20% of its goal remaining!

Film synopsis:This time around THE PUPPET MONSTER MASSACRE will tell a tale of ancient curses, eldritch entities from beyond, an evil family of hideous monsters, and a hero’s destiny! Expect several terrifying monsters, spooky locales, copious amounts of puppet gore, and a finale featuring a massacre scene for the ages in this harrowing and hilarious horror adventure.

Expanded Info:Dustin Wayde Mills, the director that brought you the award-winning 2019 horror/comedy SLAUGHTERHOUSE SLUMBER PARTY, has taken to Kickstarter to fund a very special project. In 2010, Mills released his debut feature THE PUPPET MONSTER MASSACRE. Now 10 years later–and with dozens of features, short films, and music videos under his belt–Mills is planning an epic remake of his first feature with all-new creatures and puppets, and an all-new story! After reaching over 30% of its goal in less than 72 hours after launch, Kickstarter named THE PUPPET MONSTER MASSACRE a “Project We Love!”
Once the film is complete, backers will be able to see the finished film before anyone else. But after that it will be released for free online. That’s right, people will be able to watch the film online for absolutely free! While Dustin will be selling DVD and Blu-ray copies of the movie for those who want a physical copy, he ultimately wants THE PUPPET MONSTER MASSACRE to be seen by as many people as possible. 

Dustin says: “I believe in this project so much, I have already invested thousands of my own dollars into bringing it to life. I’ve also spent hundreds of hours learning new software to handle the VFX, I learned how to sew, and I even developed new puppeteering techniques including 3D printed control mechanisms. This thing is already soaked with my blood, sweat, and tears and I haven’t even started filming yet! I want THE PUPPET MONSTER MASSACRE to be a warm, cozy, horror blanket. A crazy, fun, brightly colored, over the top spectacle that you’ll want to watch over and over.”
Joining Dustin behind the scenes is co-writer Sébastien Godin (writer/director of LYCANIMATOR, SLIMOIDS, and BLOOD RITES OF THE VAMPYR) and creature effects artist Vermilion Novak, a graduate of Tom Savini’s Makeup and Effects Program. Dustin will be reprising the role of Raimi Campbell from the original film. Additionally, Wes Allen (POWERBOMB, DEATHCEMBER) and Bradley Jones (THE CINEMA SNOB, JESUS, BRO!) have already been cast as voices in the film and additional voice casting is underway.
Backers can get signed Blu-rays, DVDs, and digital copies of both the new and original PUPPET MONSTER MASSACRE as well as on-screen credits and thanks. However, the biggest perk is extremely limited: Five executive producers will have puppets made of themselves that will be killed on-screen in the movie, and then receive pieces of the puppet once production is complete!

About Dustin Wayde Mills: Since releasing his debut feature THE PUPPET MONSTER MASSACRE in 2010, Dustin Wayde Mills has directed over a dozen feature films ranging from the Troma-esque insanity of EASTER CASKET to bleak extreme horror in the HER NAME WAS TORMENT films and even some more family-friendly genre fare with HALLOWEEN SPOOKIES. He has also worked on visual effects and makeup for films such as SUPER TASK FORCE ONE, HARVEST LAKE, SPACE BABES FROM OUTER SPACE, and HOVER in addition to his own films. His previous feature SLAUGHTERHOUSE SLUMBER PARTY, by far Mills’s most ambitious single feature project to date, had its World Premiere at the 2019 Nightmares Film Festival before an award-winning festival run. 

Help support Dustin Mills and his latest creation!

Grossfest is almost here!

July 25-26th, 2020 at The George Washington Hotel in Washington, Pa.

http://www.grossfest.com

(Last update before the show: Tim Gross here, honestly people we are all scared with what is going on in the world. But if this is the new normal then we are ready to roll: grab your mask, we got the hand sanitizer, the social distancing of vendors and guests will be in place, and be respectful to your fellow human.  All we ask if you come follow the rules and just like Tom, Terrence, Tammy, Jen, myself, and our volunteers forget about what is going on in the outside world for a few hours. Hang out and check out all the cool vendors, filmmakers, guests, and Angel the coolest tattoo artist you’ll ever meet. Grossfest is just gonna be a little different than past shows. Remember just be nice to your fellow human in these tough times.)

Well…. we had our last meeting with the George Washington hotel staff and…….This year is going to be one for the record books!

The staff have been super great to us and very accommodating! Big shout out to Lia Capito and her crew for really helping make this event come to life! Thanks to them, this year, to help with social distancing, Grossfest will be taking over the entire hotel! Guests and vendors will be spread out throughout different ballrooms to help with social distancing! Each table will be spread 6ft apart as well as we will monitor how many people will be going in to each room to respect people’s social distance.

Award winning head chef of the George Washington hotel James a. Warcholak, will be on hand cooking up some tasty brain tacos for all of us! (I’m being serious, you read that right!) if that is not your thing, there will be other things as well! Menu will be posted soon!

There will be a bar on each level of the hotel for everyone to enjoy!

Second, the movie room will be going both days! We have a lot of cool movies playing this year. Again, to help with social distancing, only a certain amount of people will be allowed in the movie room at one time. To help with that, we will play a couple of movies on Sunday for those who may not be able to get in on Saturday

The hotel and our main goal is to keep everyone safe while we try to show you a good time. If you are sick, please stay home. There will be temperature checks at the door before you enter the show. Also as per the hotel and state , masks are mandatory! They must be worn all day. The only exception is when eating and taking pics. If you are caught without a mask and refuse to comply, you will be asked to leave with no refund. We know this is a touchy subject for some but we must do what is best for everyone and also what the hotel and state are requiring . We are in this together and we want everyone safe!

There will be hand sanitizer throughout the hotel and we recommend fist bumps when greeting each other.

As for pictures, it will be up to the guest or vendor to determine how comfortable they are with pictures.

Table pics are still a go, as long as everyone is comfortable with it.

Lastly, we want everyone to have fun and relax. We have a lot of great vendors and guests this year. This year is gonna be very unique, so bear with us as we all try and make the best out of a situation that is out of our control.

Thank you to everyone and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us and we will be happy to answer you! See you soon!
