A movie filmed entirely in Western New York rolls out the red carpet for its debut on Saturday, April 29 in Niagara Falls.
The New Film
"The Burned Over District" has won its share of awards on the indie movie scene, and is finally making its red carpet debut at Northpark Theates this Saturday at 9:30 pm. Directed by veterans James and Vincent Coleman, the story is described on IMDB as:
A grieving man discovers that the seemingly quiet town is hiding a very terrifying secret. Now he must find a way to overcome his grief and fight back against the darkness that has consumed the town and its people.
What is the Burned Over District in History?
The film's name likely comes from this region of New York, dubbed The Burned Over District. It's based on the second great awakening and religious revivals that took place here in the 19th century. By looks of things, that's going to play a big role in the film. Check out the trailer below, but a warning as it's a horror movie and could be intense for some viewers.
Tickets are available for the red carpet premiere on Saturday, April 29th at North Park Theater. Buy them online CLICK HERE.
