The Ghastly Love of Johnny X
Screening @ HorrorFest
Film festival favorite flies into StarFest/HorrorFest
Truly a mad concoction, The Ghastly Love of Johnny X blends 1950s sci-fi melodrama, song-and-dance, and a touch of horror into a mesmerizing big screen spectacular! The fun begins as Johnny X and his misfit gang of juvenile delinquents from outer space are sentenced to Earth where “ghastly” is the word!
With highly stylized musical numbers, tons of genuinely humorous dialogue and wacky plot twists, The Ghastly Love of Johnny X is the only sci-fi dark comedy musical romance you need to see this year! Beautifully photographed on the last of Kodak’s 35mm black-and white Plus-X film stock, the cast includes sexy new stars Will Keenan and De Anna Joy Brooks, as well as seasoned professionals Creed Bratton (The Office), Reggie Bannister (Phantasm), Kate Maberly (The Secret Garden), Paul Williams (Phantom of the Paradise), HorrorFest’s own Jed Rowen (Dahmer vs. Gacy), and the late Kevin McCarthy (Invasion of the Body Snatchers) in his final role.

At StarFest, the first 100 people to the screening will receive a full-size 27×40 movie poster! Following the screening there will be a Q&A with the movie’s Director, Paul Bunnell and Jed Rowen, who plays Sluggo in the film.
