Hollywood Vampyr Review
Written by: Dark Newbie
A dark Gothic story with a strong positive message. I saw this film at the Modesto Film Festival, I felt it was one of the best that screened. The cast was amazing. Trevor Goddard played a great villain and it was cool to see Muse Watson not play a villain. It was nominated for six awards, but only won one - Nora Zimmett for Best Actress. I think it should have won more, like for Best Feature &/or Best Actor.
There was a Q & A session after with the writer and some cast members. It got great feedback from the audience. It is a dark themed story about Hollywood's real gothic subculture but has a very positive message. It's a learning arch and journey for the two leads Fatal (Nora Zimmett) and Tom (Jeff Marchelletta) as they search to find themselves. They struggle with acceptance, lifestyle, religious faith, drugs and their '"families." After a bumpy ride, cult suicides and murders Fatal & Tom both come out survivors and learn they can be their own unique selves to belong.
