Horror convention documentary Fantasm will be released on DVD on November 11th. It’s currently available for pre-order at a discounted price via fantasm.storenvy.com.
In addition to the feature-length documentary, this limited edition DVD includes the original student film, extended interviews, bloopers, “Dinner at the Kuchta’s,” trailers and the Kickstarter video.
Fantasm is on sale for $13 until the November 11th release, after which the price will increase. It’s also available signed by director Kyle Kuchta – at no additional cost – during the pre-order period only. Posters are on sale as well.
“I’m excited that Fantasm will finally be out and available,” says Kuchta. “What started as a student film grew into so much more, and I’m grateful for all the love and support over the past two years.”
In an effort to understand his own fascination with the genre, horror fanatic Kyle Kuchta embarked on a journey to six horror conventions throughout the united states. Through interviews with actors, directors, horror experts and fellow fans at conventions, Kyle discovered that it’s not only the love of the genre that makes these gatherings so special, but it’s the sense of community.
Fantasm features insight from such notable names as Tom Atkins (Escape from New York), Heather Langenkamp (A Nightmare on Elm Street), Lloyd Kaufman (The Toxic Avenger), Joe Lynch (Wrong Turn 2), Richard Johnson (The Haunting) and more, alongside the dedicate fans who attend horror conventions.
Kuchta will celebrate the release of Fantasm with a free screening and release party at Jumpcut Cafe in Studio City, CA on Saturday, November 8th. Event details can be found here.
