Morbidly Beautiful

Your Home for Horror


Following a successful festival run, the indie horror thriller “GET MY GUN” is now making it’s way onto the big screen this September. 

I was fortunate enough to screen the absolutely incredible Get My Gun from writer/director Brian Darwas at Cinepocalypse 2017, one of the most anticipated and prestigious genre film festivals of the year. The impressively loaded programming scheduled kicked off with the Midwest Premiere of the film.

Darwas himself was in attendance to introduce the film, which he co-wrote with Jennifer Charchietta as an homage to controversial exploitation classics of the past, including films like Ms. 45 and I Spit on Your Grave.

The film has received tremendous critical praise from some of the top genre outlets:

‘GET MY GUN is an absolute triumph of a film – a smart and compelling script that is flawlessly executed by way of three powerhouse female performances.’ ~ Stephanie Malone (Morbidly Beautiful)

Written and directed by Brian Darwas, ‘GET MY GUN is a grindhouse gem that tells a grueling tale of female empowerment, and doesn’t hold back’. ~ Daniel Kurland (Bloody Disgusting).

GET MY GUN is a well-thought out exploitative flick that should sit at the top of your watch list – definitely recommended. ~ Matt Boiselle (Dread Central).

Get My Gun centers around a young woman named Amanda (a fearless Kate Hoffman) who cleans hotel rooms to make ends meet. One day, she enters the wrong room. Brutally attacked, Amanda is left both emotionally shattered and pregnant. Looking to forge ahead, the resilient young woman must to tap into her basest survival instincts when a relentless stalker makes their
intentions known.
