Horror Realm Presents Charity Screening of George Romero's Martin

Rare screening of Romero's vampire film to benefit Scares That Care

Pittsburgh, PA (I-Newswire) May 19, 2013 - Horror Realm presents a special screening of the 1978 horror film "Martin", written and directed by George Romero. The event takes place on Saturday, June 22, 2013 at the Hollywood Theater in Dormont.

Net proceeds will benefit Scares That Care, an all volunteer 501c3 charity that helps sick kids and women fighting breast cancer. Last year's Day of the Dead charity event brought in more than $2,200 for the charity and the organizers hope to top that with this rare public screening of the locally made Romero classic.

Actor John Amplas, who stars as the title character, will be appearing at the event. Other guests will be announced at a later date. The film is about a young man who may or may not be a vampire. Film critic Leonard Maltin gives Martin three of four stars and says it's an "interesting little shocker (is) worth seeing, but not right after dinner".

Doors will open at 6 PM. The schedule for the night is as follows:

6:30 PM - John Amplas and other guests will be available for autographs. Mr. Amplas will be charging for his autograph but is donating all proceeds to Scares that Care.

7:45 PM - Silent auction and raffle winners announced

8:00 PM - "Martin" screening begins

9:40 PM - Q&A with John Amplas and other guests

Artist Terry Callen of Screaming Brain Studio is creating a special 11x17 limited edition poster for this event. Callen has designed posters for the Fix The Chapel project and The Oaks Theater.

Tickets may be purchased at www.showclix.com/event/martinstcbenefit. There will be two ticket options:

•$25 includes a movie ticket and a copy of the limited edition poster which will be autographed at no additional charge. Poster tickets must be purchased in advance and will not be available at the door.
