Chad Carpenter’s Mix of Horror and Hokum About a Killer Moose Set to Debut at Valley Cinema
The red carpet will roll out on Friday, April 24 at Valley Cinema in Wasilla when the Mat-Su showhouse hosts the world premiere of a new movie.
It’s a thriller with a supernatural monster, seven mauled bodies and at least one crashed car. Maybe two. It’s a comedy full of nutty characters doing nutty things with, uh, puppets. It has a plucky hero, a pretty coroner’s assistant, a mountain pirate, a tiny town full of loopy hicks and a thing from the dead with horns (OK, antlers) that stalks its prey on two legs.
It’s also a total, 100 percent, born-and-made-in-Alaska flick that didn’t use a cent in state film subsidies.
“We were too small potatoes for the subsidy. It would have been a headache, so we just did it ourselves,” said co-writer Chad Carpenter.
