Emily Hagins – who the horror community knew as the young woman at the center of the Zombie Girl documentary – is poised to tour the country with her new film, My Sucky Teen Romance. That’s the poster you see to the left.
She’ll bring her film through a special four-city fan tour with Dark Sky Films and Ain’t It Cool News. Launching with a red carpet premiere in Los Angeles at Cinespace on August 22nd, the film will make its way through New York, Chicago and Emily’s home base in Austin.
Each screening will be presented in partnership with Ain’t It Cool News (AICN), with one of AICN’s editors hosting each screening. Tickets will be given away for each date on the tour at AintItCool.com. Founder Harry Knowles has encouraged and supported Emily since her earliest days as a filmmaker.
For fans who can’t catch the film on the big screen, My Sucky Teen Romance will be available on Blu-ray and DVD via MPI/Dark Sky Films on September 4th.
Synopsis: On 17-year-old Kate’s last weekend in town before heading to college, she and her geeky friends head to SpaceCON, the local sci-fi/fantasy convention. There, Kate meets Paul, a recently turned teen vampire (who takes advantage of the gathering’s costume atmosphere by actually dressing as a bloodsucker). But when Kate tries to make a move on him, he gives her the hickey from hell. Kate and her pals then discover that Paul is not the only vampire at the convention, and it is up to them to kick some vampire butt, or Kate’s going to be attending permanent night school from now on!
The cast include Elaine Hurt, Patrick Delgado, Lauren Vunderink and Lauren Lee.
At the age of 12, Hagins was the subject of Zombie Girl! The Movie, a documentary about the making of her first feature, Pathogen.
