Looks like The Dark Hunger is making a trip across the pond! The UK Premiere is this month at the London Monthly Film Festival. What a cool honor and we're excited for the film to have found a home internationally.
The premiere came and it was a bloody, crazy success! The film was screened, Malort was consumed and the movie looked and sounded as gross as it could ever hope. The room was even packed, so that made it even better
Many thanks to everyone who came out. Pictures coming soon!
