So, y’all have heard about the first ever iPad movie, Holy Hell, shot in good ol’ Austin, TX, right?
If you haven’t been following this cutting-edge series, the final chapter of the film will be released today and you should check it out so you can become one of the cool kids that can say, “Yeah… I just watched the first ever movie made for the iPad, SO WHAT?”
In celebration of the final chapter’s debut, the filmmakers are offering the entire film FOR FREE this Friday, January 11th and Saturday, January 12th.
The film has been getting a lot of buzz in the film and tech industries, with its own flashy SXSW Interactive panel to add to its long list of cool factors.
The feature stars Edwin Neal (TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE), Kenneth Wayne Bradley (DRIVE ANGRY), Barbara Chisholm (FAST FOOD NATION) and Ellie McBride (TREE OF LIFE), and was directed by director Rafael Antonio Ruiz, who is currently voyaging the festival circuit with his acclaimed short A Quiet Girl’s Guide to Violence (Fantastic Fest, Telluride and Cucalorus).
HOLY HELL tells the story of a small church on the verge of bankruptcy in a world of mega churches. Desperate for any idea, the congregation makes a horror movie in a last-‐ditch effort for survival. But once they become the target of a politically-‐active religious watchdog group, the small church gets more of a fight than they bargained for.
GOD, I f’ing love innovation.
