Straight From Troma: FATHER’S DAY ON THE COVER OF MARCH ISSUE OF RUE MORGUE

Greetings from Tromaville! Troma Entertainment is very proud to announce that Father’s Day will grace the cover of the March issue of Rue Morgue magazine, with extensive feature coverage of the film inside. After successful New York and Los Angeles runs in February, the film continues its theatrical engagements across the US and Canada, screening in Oak Cliff, Columbus, Dallas, Washington and Winnipeg in March, followed by Chicago, Seattle, Tampa, Las Vegas and Salt Lake City in April.

Variety calls Father’s Day “a gleefully tasteless quasi-grindhouse nasty that’s funnier than most of the many such parodic cheesefests that have been created since, well, Grindhouse!” Ain’t it Cool News adds “Father’s Day is over the top, tasteless, senseless, and completely hilarious.”

The gritty, gruesome, grindhouse Father’s Day follows that classic story we all grew up with: boy watches father murdered, boy grows into a vengeful one-eyed man, man teams up with a priest and a male prostitute to take down his father’s killer. With good reason, Father’s Day won Best Film, Most Original Film, Best Kills, and Best Poster at the Toronto After Dark Film Festival and has been invited to other prestigious festivals all over the world.
