IT’S IN THE BLOOD starring Lance Henriksen Wins

2012 Phoenix International Horror & Sci-Fi Festival

 

Best Horror Feature


 

First time filmmakers Scooter Downey and Sean Elliot, in association with Greenhouse Studios and Spiderwood Studios, proudly made the Arizona premiere of It’s In The Blood at the 2012 Phoenix International Horror & Sci-Fi Festival on Friday March 30th.

 

It’s In The Blooda character-driven horror story starring veteran character actor Lance Henriksen, was awarded the prize for Best Horror Feature at the 2012 Phoenix International Horror & Sci-Fi.  An additional screening of the film will be held on Tuesday April 3 at 9:10 PM in the Harkins Scottsdale 101 Theatre 5.  Director Scooter Downey and Co-star Sean Elliot will both be in attendance and participate in a Q&A session with the audience immediately following the screening.

 

In Addition to Phoenix, the film has been an award winning feature selection at numerous festivals including the New Jersey Film Festival, Appalachian Film Festival, and the Derby City Film Festival in Louisville, KY where it was awarded Best Picture, Audience Choice Award, Grand Jury Prize, and Elliot was awarded Best Actor (October). 

 

Directed by Scooter Downey, It’s In The Blood is a wholly unique cinematic movement.  At its core, a father son story, the film is a deconstruction of the prototypical “creature feature”, incorporating elements of mystical realism and psychological thriller.  This new motion in film is called a Psyche-Saga.  Lance Henriksen stars in this nightmarish descent into the wilderness, the very heart of darkness where more than your guilt can eat you alive.

 

Best known for his roles as Karl Bishop Weyland in the Aliens franchise and Frank Black in the TV series MillenniumLance Henriksen has amassed a resume that would put most actors to shame in a career spanning more than 50 years. Lance has worked with some of the greatest directors of all time, including James Cameron, Steven Spielberg, and Sidney Lumet, and his characters have been killed by some of Hollywood’s greatest monsters, including the Terminator, the Predator and the Alien. With 15 projects in 2011, this versatile actor shows no signs of slowing down.

 

Born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky, and best friends since kindergarten, Sean Elliot and Scooter Downey co-wrote and produced the film. The film was shot in Austin, Texas, with Spiderwood Studios providing the cinematic backdrop with a state-of-the-art, full-service production facility situated on 200 acres of diverse terrain along the Colorado River.

 

Greenhouse Studios, a Los Angeles production company that assists independent filmmakers through every stage of the cinematic process, provided post production services and additional support.

 

The International Horror and Sci-fi Film Festival, in conjunction with the 12th Annual Phoenix Film Festival, continue through April 5th. The final Phoenix Film Festival screening will be on Tuesday, 4/2/12 at 9:10PM at the Harkens 101 Theatre.   It’s In The Blood is a feature selection for the Arizona International Film Festival and will be shown in Tuscon, AZ on Friday 4/20/12 at 8:00PM at the Screening Room.
