Since taking home two Audience Awards at DANCES WITH FILMS including “Run of the Fest” – Killer Friends, the irreverent and provocative dark comedy by newcomer Zach Noe Towers, is scheduled for a week-long release at the Laemmle Theatres in North Hollywood, from September 2nd to the 8th.

Thanks to this theatrical release opportunity, Killer Friends is now eligible for an Academy Awards (Oscar®) nomination.


“I still can’t believe my little horror comedy is going to be considered for an Oscar nomination. Horror is such an over-looked genre, so it feels really great to be recognized in this grand way,” says actor-filmmaker, Zach Noe Towers.

The film is about four friends who go on a camping trip, only one of them won’t be coming back alive. The lead character, Scott, is a gay man, played by Towers himself. It was important for Towers that his protagonist’s sexuality wasn’t the only driving force of the plot.

“LGBT television and film often fall into this rut of stereotypes where either the leads are afraid of their identity or almost over-embrace it. I want to tell stories that abolish those old-time clichés and that reach across gender and sexuality to entertain all walks of life,” explains Towers.
