STAND-UP EXPERIENCES COMEDY HELL
Writer/director Scott (THE BLAIR BITCH PROJECT) LaRose wrapped his debut feature film, COMEDY HELL, in LA last week. The humorous horror movie, about three funnymen stalked by a maniac, stars Eric (THE AMBULANCE) Roberts, Rick (EIGHT LEGGED FREAKS) Overton, Michael (SEAQUEST) DeLuise, Victoria (MUTANT X) Pratt, Marty (NYPD BLUE) Rackham, Brian (AMERICAN IDOL) Dunkleman and Owen (GILMORE GIRLS) Smith.
?COMEDY HELL is an outrageously new, completely original horror/comedy,? LaRose tells Fango, ?with the emphasis on horror. It?s about three stand-up comics [Rackham, Smith and Dunkleman] who go to Big Bear, CA to do a gig and cross paths with a serial killer named Wayne who?s killing devil worshippers and other blasphemers.?
LaRose has corralled some major FX talent for his film. ?Greg Nicotero at KNB has pulled off another amazing job doing all the never-been-seen-before gore,? he says. ?We also have a cameo by Chris Nelson from KNB, who played the groom in KILL BILL VOL. 2, as a clerk. Plus Bob Kurtzman, formerly of KNB, is doing all the visual effects from Ohio with his newly formed company, Precinct 13 Entertainment.
?We finished shooting on Friday the 13th,? LaRose continues. ?No shit. It wasn?t even planned. The movie?s tagline is, ?COMEDY HELL: Laugh?till it really hurts.? ?
