Bikini Bloodbath - Campy Splatterfest Ignites Onto DVD

PLAINVILLE, CT – 11 December 2007 - Bikini Bloodbath, a campy splatter-fest, in the vein of Scream and Scary Movie that pays homage to 80’s horror movies is available on DVD December 11th 2007. The film was written and directed by Jon Gorman and Thomas Edward Seymour.

“It’s Superbad meets Fiday the 13th,” comments Sheri Lynn, the movie’s producer and Middletown resident. “It provides a debut for a lot of young female actors in very funny roles,” says Sheri, “It’s one of the few films being released with a predominately female cast that’s not labeled a ‘chick flick’.”

Leah Ford makes her on screen debut as Jenny the movie’s heroine. The film also debuts, Anna-Karin Eskilsson, Katie Gil, Natasha Nielsen, Olja Hrustic, Dana Fay Ensalata, and Maggie Champagne. The film stars Debbie Rochon, Leah Ford and Russ Russo. Rochon is cult legend having starred in over 150 films. She is also the co-host of Fangoria Radio on Sirius Satellite along with Dee Snider. Russ Russo is known for his work in the locally filmed movies A New Wave (John Krasinski, Lacey Chabert; ThinkFilm 2007), and Land of College Prophets (York 2005). Bikini Bloodbath was filmed all around Connecticut including in: Southington, New Britain, and Plainville.

Bikini Bloodbath is the story of Jenny who on her last day of high school decides to have a slumber party to celebrate her friends going away to college. Across town, a maniacal chef goes on a killing spree. Their gym coach (Debbie Rochon) attempts to the rescue of the bikini clad group, but when Chef Death (Robert Cosgrove) shows up at the party, hilarity ensues and the blood bath begins.

“The soundtrack is also something I’m proud of,” says Seymour. “It’s a compilation of local musicians, many from local label Sling Slang Records. Other songs were written for the movie and recorded at Aliehn Studio’s of Bristol, CT. We think that indy film is the perfect medium for indy music.”

Bikini Bloodbath was an attempt to create a film that was purely entertaining and fun. Inspired by the films of Mel Brooks, Roger Corman, and Loyd Kauffman, “It’s an absurd comedy,” says Gorman, “if you’re looking for meaning, look elsewhere.” Bikini Bloodbath is available through online retailers and can be downloaded via most major online streaming sites. It is available wholesale through MVD, VPD, Ingram, B&T and will be available at finer retailers. A trailer is available to view at
