Houston-Made Horror-Comedy Clinger Plays Alamo Drafthouse in October
Theatrical dates have just been announced for the Houston-made horror-comedy Clinger, which will be making its world theatrical premiere at Alamo Drafthouse Vintage Park in October just eight days before Halloween (of course).
Here’s the full list of Clinger showings announced so far:
Houston – Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, Vintage Park
Friday, October 23 at 10 p.m.
Saturday, October 24 at 5 p.m.
Sunday, October 25 – Thursday, October 29 at 10 p.m.
New York City – MovieWorld Cinemas, Queens
Friday, October 30 at 10 p.m.
Los Angeles – Laemmle Music Hall, Beverly Hills
Thursday, November 12 at 10 p.m.
As we reported previously, Clinger centers on high-school senior Fern (Jennifer Laporte), who finds herself fending off her clingy boyfriend (Vincent Martella) even after he dies a horrible death by accidental decapitation. See, he’s now a lovesick ghost trying to kill her so they can be together forever. Michael Steves directed the blood-soaked comedy from a screenplay he wrote with pals Bubba Fish and Gabi Chennisi Duncombe.
Clinger’s cast and crew is filled with Houston talent, some of whom might even show up at screenings.
“I’ll definitely be reppin’ at the Houston and L.A. screenings,” co-producer Mel House said on Facebook. “Team Clinger rolls deep, so I’m sure all of these will be well attended.”
