Regional Filmmakers Spotlight 7:30 p.m. October 16 and 17 Featuring Q&A with writer/director Blayne Weaver, film editors J.C. Doler and Chris Lyon, and actress Cherish McCormick Writer/director Blayne Weaver is returning to Shreveport with his new horror film just in time for Halloween. Weaver: "I’ve always been a fan of scary movies. Zombies, ghosts and monsters are great but they don’t really get me. The horror films that would keep me up at night were about that single disturbed individual who wanted to kill. The slasher movies of the 70’s and 80’s were always the scariest to me. I also love how those films often had a wry sense of humor about them. It’s not unusual to laugh at a line from an irreverent character moments before they become a bloody victim. GetAWAY is my homage to these films." Devastated by a sudden break-up, young actress Maddie needs a getaway from campus to help mend her broken heart. Her best friend lands her a role in the student slasher flick shooting over the weekend at a camp deep in the Virginia forest. It’s the perfect place to unwind, but no matter how far into the woods she goes, her problems keep sneaking up behind her. Before the film’s crew can shoot their first frame, their production gains an unwelcome new crew member…and he’s out for blood! Props go missing, equipment is stolen, and the bodies pile up. A crazed maniac has zeroed in on the students of this film class, but nothing is truly as it seems in GetAWAY. The cast and crew turn on each other as they fight for their lives trying to escape the slaughter. The bloodthirsty psychopath shoots each grisly demise for his own perverted movie. A terrifyingly twisting meta-slasher film within a film within a film, that'll keep you guessing until the shocking, horrific conclusion.
Armed with only one word -- Tenet -- and fighting for the survival of the entire world, the Protagonist journeys through a twilight world of international espionage on a mission that will unfold in something beyond real time.
