Irving, Texas. October 26, 2013 –
Jebadiah’s Axe is the latest feature film from Brainpie Media Productions and filmmaker Jim DeVault from Irving, TX , who wrote and directed the project.
Shot near Lake Tawakoni in East Texas, the cast and crew endured snakes, mosquitoes, chiggers, and other wildlife roaming in the dense woods that served as the backdrop for the story. "Most of us," says DeVault, "had chigger bites from our feet, up our legs, and close to where I’d rather not mention."
"It literally took a town to put this movie together," says actor Nicole Holt, who takes on the role of Kate in the film, "From crew and actors, to friends of friends and their family members, to the mayor of Quinlan. A lot of people helped get locations lined up and pull everything off. Quinlan and West Tawakoni, Texas are great little towns and I hope to be back out there sometime for another movie."
The cast includes actors from DeVault’s previous feature, Tim Newkirk and Greg Vestal, as well as actors new to the profession, such as Kirby Little, Earl Loveday, and Denise McMillan. Sexy Argentine actress Deborah Funes from Miami co-stars, and the "Ultimate Scream Queen," Debbie D, joins those who come to a grisly end at the hands of Jebadiah.
Jebadiah’s Axe is rising to a new level for the director. "I won’t say how many gallons we used, but it gets pretty messy," he continues, "and with more than just an axe; we also use a shotgun, a pair of rusty garden shears, and set a guy on fire."
The film will premiere at the Texas Theatre in Dallas on Monday, October 28, just in time for Halloween. The doors open at 6:30 p.m., with a meet-and-greet, and the show starts at 8 p.m, followed by a Q&A with cast and filmmakers.
"In addition," adds DeVault, "with the Thanksgiving holiday around the corner we thought it would be a good opportunity to bring together something to help the less fortunate families in the area." To that end the film’s producers have partnered with Chef Brenda Johnson at La Buona Cucina Catering we will be having a Food 4 Food drive. Each person that brings a canned food to the premiere will enjoy Chef Brenda's wonderfully tasty delights, but it’s limited to the first 100 guests, so arrive early.
It promises to be a fun and unique event of food, fun, and good local indie horror.
"We’ve really ramped up the blood on this one," DeVault adds. "We’re spilling lots of blood in an hour and a half." His previous productions involving vampires and psycho killers have been violent, with some gore, but the blood-letting on
