The wrestling horror movie “Parts Unknown” had its world premiere in Arlington, Massachusetts, on June 9, 2018. A combined total of almost 120 people attended the two screenings held at the Capitol Theatre. The first screening had sold out days before the premiere.
Written, produced, and directed by Boston Film Family CEO Richard Chandler, “Parts Unknown” is the story about how the infamous Von Strasser family (of professional wrestling fame) seek to violently reclaim their notorious status through supernatural means despite being blackballed by forces within the industry. The movie stars retired pro-wrestler/actor William DeCoff, pro-wrestling manager/actress Lizzie Havoc, and Boston Film Family alumni Alexandra Cipolla, Alexander Hauck, and Sarah Michelle.
“The first audience (contained members of) the cast and friends of the cast so they took it all in the way a normal audience would,” said Chandler. “The second screening (had) more fans of the genre and they went crazy for the violence – which pleased me.”
Legendary independent movie actress Melantha Blackthorne, who had a leading role in Chandler’s feature film “Gilgamesh” (2014), returned in a smaller role while former pro-wrestler Jake “The Snake” Roberts lends his vocal talents to the movie. Cameos are also provided by the indie tag team The Devil’s Doormen as well as YouTube and podcast personality Brian Zane (of “Wrestling with Wregret” fame).
The movie was shot by Director of Photography Denez McAdoo, costumes were created by Jenny French, and composer Andre Fernandea created the movie’s score.
Also in attendance for the premiere were New England independent filmmakers such as Jim Heffernan (“The Angry World of Brian Webster”), Paul McAlarney (“Honky Holocaust”), Mike O’D (“The Chair”), Christian Sherman (“Villains, Inc.”), and Dave Sullivan (“Are You Coming or What?”).
Chandler stated that DVDs and Blu-Ray discs for “Parts Unknown” are available for purchase at his company’s website and that he will seek a distribution deal for the movie.
