The independent horror film Roman’s Bride will make its debut this weekend at the third annual Phoenix Fear Film Festival and Convention in Tempe.
Premiering 5:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 23, at MADCAP Theaters, 730 S. Mill Ave., the film is written and produced by a former Tucson resident, Anne Paul, who also stars as Lily Heller, a “lonely rural Iowa woman with deadly fixations.” Director Michael Paul will hold a Q&A after the screening of the Dead Weeds Pictures film.

Roman’s Bride was shot entirely in Iowa, and also stars another former Tucson resident, Kristine Medrud, as Lily’s mother.
Here’s a plot synopsis from the film’s press release:
When Lily discovers that her neighbor and childhood crush, Roman, has recently become single and unemployed, she fixates on gaining his attention. But the closer Lily gets, the more she becomes haunted by threats from her past that push her to the edge. When Roman’s old girlfriend returns, with plans for a wedding, Lily’s world become everyone’s hell.
