I’m not sure what’s more awesome..the fact that the movie “The Sadist” was shot right here in Connecticut (Waterbury, Middlebury and Naugatuck to be exact) OR that it stars one one of my biggest heroes, Tom Savini.
From what I gather from the trailer (link below), the special effects legend plays a deranged war veteran who is stalking some guys who are in the woods on their annual hunting trip. I have a feeling that they might have picked the wrong time and the wrong woods for that hunting trip.
Written by three Waterbury natives (Joe Pisani, Frank Whihbey and Pedro Ondrush), the film should be a cool one for us folks from the area as I hear there are a lot of local landmarks to see and they even used some locals as extras.
“The Sadist” will be screened this Thursday, January 3rd at Creative Cinemas 10 on 117 Sharon Road in Waterbury. There will be two showings, one at 6pm and one at 8pm; both are open to the public so come on down, support local film making and see the legend, Tom Savini, carve some innocent flesh!
