Indie monster movie shot in Mesa to debut Friday in Tempe

Sacrifice posterAn independent giant-monster movie shot in the East Valley will make its big-screen debut Friday at MADCAP Theaters in Tempe.

Sacrifice will premiere with two showings, 7 and 9 p.m., with an ongoing reception before and during the screenings, where you can meet the cast and crew and get posters signed. Tickets cost $5 through Brown Paper Tickets.

MADCAP is located at 730 S. Mill Ave. in Tempe. A portion of proceeds from drink sales at the reception will be donated to the Arizona literary nonprofit group Anthology Inc.

Here’s a description from the film’s website:

Sacrifice is the story of choices. Woven into the story are the impact of the choices we make, be they 500 years ago or today. The story follows the discovery of a potential weapon of mass destruction in southern Arizona, and the pursuit of answers by a young couple and the military.

What they find is a threat that is (literally and figuratively) larger than all of them as they set loose a giant monster, which subsequently seeks to destroy civilization as we know it.

Scenes in Sacrifice were shot in downtown Mesa at Queen’s Pizzeria and Evermore Nevermore, a clothing and collectibles shop with a decidedly steampunk/sci-fi vibe.

  • Wow, we are such big fans of Sci-Fi and classic monster movies. So much so, we started up our own Indie film business a few years back called Big Tex Movin’ pictures. As you can guess, we’re down here in Texas. Our first movie’s just hitting Amazon at: http://www.amazon.com/Color-Blood-William-B-Hughes/dp/B0057J2JBM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1309628804&sr=8-1 It’s called The Color of Blood and it’s full of pretty girls, creepy settings and one crazy new monster. The story surrounds a bunch of young artists, trying to make their names, and the trouble they get into when they start working for Zorasian Gallery. This Zorasian guy is actually an Aztec Vampire and you know what trouble that leads to!

    Our next film is Matt Mercury and His Rocket Rangers. It’ll be our feature length version of an award-winning short film

    Matt Mercury will be great fun to make and even more fun to watch, at least for fans of the good old days of final frontiers, mad super-genius’ and alien a’plenty!

    You can see more on http://www.bigtexfilm.com and follow Indie Film action on http://www.indiefilmtexas.com

    Hope to see y’all around and let’s fans keep makin’ movie magic!
