Weird Movie Title, Even Weirder PR Pitch

To do full justice to the name of the following indie film spoof, imagine reading the title aloud in the style of Pee-wee Herman‘s wind-up delivery. It’s called Night of the Day of the Dawn of the Son of the Bride of the Return of the Revenge of the Terror of the Attack of the Evil, Mutant, Hellbound, Flesh-Eating, Crawling, Alien & Zombified, Subhumanoid Living Dead… Part 5

Even stranger is the offer being made by the parody film’s hostess, former Long Island foster child Angelica, to a list of celebrities that includes Hollywood comedy royalty Adam Sandler, Will Ferrell, Seth MacFarlane, Trey Parker and Matt Stone. If one of these targets agrees to review the movie, she and her partners (director James Riffel, co-writer Mark Zobian) are promising to pass on a check for $10,000 that can be donated to a charity of the celebrity’s choice.

The Brooklyn based Angelica is no stranger to unusually named artistic endeavors; her band is called Eellogofusciohipopokunurious. It’s not clear how effective the PR effort will be if the celebrity critique that comes back hews the line of, “This movie stinks!”

Update – 03/14/12: It took a while, but on March 11, 2012, the makers of the movie posted a YouTube video confirming that Kevin Smith has agreed to review the film and donate the 10K his charity The Wayne Foundation. All good things come…
