Last night was amazing. I want to thank everyone who came out and supported our efforts. It was the greatest night of our lives. We sold out both shows, got featured on Fox 4, and entertained over 300 people. Keep checking out our web site, once we get our future showings booked we will list the dates on here. So if you missed the world premiere of Berdella last night, you still have many opportunities to see it on the big screen!
KC Star mentioned Berdella: http://www.kansascity.com/entertainment/movies/story/1433003.html
The makers of “Berdella,” a feature based on Kansas City’s most notorious serial killer, are holding a bash tonight to celebrate their film.
“Berdella” will screen at 7 and 9 p.m. (the first show already is sold out) as part of a premiere party at the Screenland Crossroads that runs till midnight. Admission is $7.
Written and directed by KC locals Bill Taft and Paul South, the film stars Seth Correa as Bob Berdella, the Westport shop owner who in the 1980s kidnapped, tortured and killed six young men in his south Hyde Park home.

Everything related to the movie has been blowing up. Been very busy promoting our World Premiere. Fox 4 just interviewed a detective from the Berdella case and they are going to include that in their interview with us. They haven’t given us an actual date yet, but once we know it will be posted about 24 hours in advance on the web site, plus the facebook, twitter, and myspace pages.
RSVP for the Berdella premiere on Facebook, the event is almost sold out!
We have secured front page of the Rockhurst University newspaper, my alma mater. We’ll have the photo spread and article available on the web site by the end of the week.
