On Thursday, April 15th, director Mel House finally birthed his two years-in-the-making horror / sci-fi film, Walking Distance (review here). I had missed the red carpet event they did earlier in the afternoon, but made it out to the Premiere Party across the street from The Magnolia Theater.
I got a chance to talk to Mel a bit, who seemed very nervous and excited to finally have people see his film. It was a pretty cool little party. Most of the major actors were there, including Adrienne King (Friday the 13th and Friday the 13th, Part 2) and Glenn Morshower (Transformers movies, 24, Star Trek, The Crazies). Walking Distance is the first movie that King has been in since her appearance in Friday the 13th, Part 2 in 1981.
They milled around and hung out with everyone, talking and having drinks. Drinks were on the house, which was cool. I got a chance to interview Mel, actress Melanie Donihoo, and Denton Blane Everett.
After the party, we all headed over to the screening, which had a full house and there was applause by friends of the different actors as they showed up onscreen.
After the movie, they hosted a Q&A with the cast. I would have to say that the film had a great reception and was liked by pretty much everyone there. Check out some photos from the event up above.
