Guest announcement: He is one of the most multi-talented independent filmmakers you could ever meet. He has his own website that streams and available for purchase his films and music called, “Henflix”. He has acted in over 30 films and has directed two dozen films. You name it; he has done it in front of the camera and behind it and does not stick to one genre. Depression: The Movie, Babysitter Massacre, Calamity Jane’s Revenge are a few of his notable films. I could write pages on how cool this once a generation talent is but how about you come on down to Grossfest this July 20th and meet him yourself. I introduce you to the one and only Henrique Couto!
Well this happened: Let’s just get right down to it because there aren’t enough words to express how cool this is! This man needs no introduction as his makeup work says it all. But he has carved out an amazing career as an actor and a director also. He has inspired generations to do makeup and effects. Kids are still inspired by the amazing work he has done in the effects world. Some of his work is shown off in “Dawn of the Dead”, “Friday the 13th”, and “Creepshow”. To this day I feel he did amazing work directing “Night of the Living Dead 1990”, but also was hilarious in such projects “From Dusk till Dawn” and “Machete”. He is truly the man, the myth, the legend, Tom Savini! We welcome Tom in joining our guest list for Grossfest 2019. www.grossfest.com #grossfest , #grossfest2019 , see yinz there!
For our next guest announcement, Glenn Berggoetz is the filmmaker behind twelve feature films, including the horror/thriller “Paralyzed with Fear” that stars Kane Hodder from the “Friday the 13th” films and “The Ghosts of Johnson Woods” that stars Joe Bob Briggs from “Monstervision.” Glenn makes most of his films on micro-budgets, which led to his being asked to write the book “The Independent Filmmaker’s Guide: Make Your Feature Film for $2,000,” which is available from the Hal Leonard Company. Glenn has also contributed numerous short horror films to the British “60 Seconds to Die” horror film anthologies. Next on his filmmaking agenda is the experimental horror film “Experiments in Evil” that he plans to shoot in the spring of 2019. With great excitement we introduce you to the talented Glenn Berggoetz! Check out http://www.grossfest.com.
For our seventh guest announcement for Grossfest is a filmmaker, actor, producer who I have known since he was a teenager. This person is more of your “outside of the box non-traditional” independent filmmaker. His movies have their own rules, he doesn’t stick to one genre, and I have absolutely loved it every step of the way. Most filmmakers having lower or no budgets for their projects would hold them back? This filmmaker thrives on it by using imagination, talented friends and actors, and brilliant writing. “Wolfster, Part 1: The Curse of the Emo Vamp, Basic Slaughter, The Slasher Hunter, Everyone Must Die!, Super Task Force One, Captain Z & the Terror of Leviathan, Red Christmas, The Survivors, CarousHELL” are some of his films he has made over the past decade. With great respect, absolute delight, and there is no way I could not have ask this person to be a part of Grossfest: I introduce you to the charming and handsome Steve Rudzinski! Steve’s recent “CarousHELL” film like “The Barn” is one of my favorite independent films that I have had the pleasure of watching in my lifetime. Like “The Barn” dudes it would not surprise me to see Steve move on to bigger things soon… Next up for Steve “A Meowy Christmas”.
