VEIL OF BLOOD NEWS:
'Veil of Blood' to have World Premiere in December
October 16, 2006 -- "Veil of Blood," a new indie horror film not to be confused with the '70s sexploitation flick of the same name, is having its world premiere this December.
"Veil of Blood," a gory off-beat horror film, will premiere at the Coolidge Corner Theater at midnight on Saturday, December 9.
Veil of Blood blends dark humor with gruesome shocks and gore. The film took five years to complete, and was produced by a group of passionate local artists. The film was produced outside mainstream cinema and financed by the film's director, Joe Lemieux. The budget was stretched to its limit, but through many maxxed out credit cards and penny pinching the film is completed.
