Richard Bates, Jr.’s TRASH FIRE (hitting limited theaters and VOD on November 4th) has been blowing people away at every festival screening around and it’s really no surprise. One of the most unique and singularly original filmmakers working today, Bates made mouths drop with his feature debut EXCISION and made just as many laugh with his sophomore film, SUBURBAN GOTHIC. TRASH FIRE seems like it’s yet another step in the right direction, with Bates teaming up with Snowfort Films, who to be completely honest, is quite awesome, being that the studio hasn’t really made a single bad film yet. All of us at Icons of Fright love the hell out of Bates and his LA premiere at this year’s Screamfest went absolutely perfect.
We’ve got our hands on quite a few stills from the premiere (which all went down on October 18th), as well as a video intro from TRASH FIRE star Adrian Grenier. Read on!
Adrian Grenier Intro:
When Owen is forced to confront the past he’s been running from his whole adult life, he and his girlfriend, Isabel, become entangled in a horrifying web of lies, deceit and murder. You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll be scarred for life.
