Filmmaker Kyle Kuchta is proud has revealed the official trailer for his horror convention documentary Fantasm, which analyzes the tight-knit community that attends horror conventions in an exploration of how the genre brings fans together.
“Fantasm was filmed over six conventions, and I felt myself growing closer and closer to the genre that we all love so much,” says Kuchta. “It means a lot to be able to share that love with people, and that’s what Fantasm is all about.”
In addition to a variety of devoted fans, Fantasm features insight from popular horror actors and filmmakers, including Heather Langenkamp (A Nightmare on Elm Street), Tom Atkins (Escape from New York), Joe Lynch (Wrong Turn 2), Amanda Wyss (A Nightmare on Elm Street), Lloyd Kaufman (The Toxic Avenger) and more.
With production complete, Kuchta is currently focused on editing Fantasm, with plans to begin submitting to film festivals this fall. An abridged version of Fantasm will screen for free at Syracuse University’s Shemin Auditorium as part of the school’s Class of 2013 Film Showcase on May 4th.
