Serial Killer Groupies: A Love Story To Screen At The Backlot March 19

Wednesday, March 7, 2018

Serial Killer Groupies: A Love Story will screen at the March edition of The Backlot at Heritage House Monday, March 19.  Following the screening will be a Q&A with the writer-director, Joy Krause. 

Review for Serial Killer Groupies: A Love Story: 

Serial Killer Groupies explores the bizarre and macabre world of women who idolize, fall in love with (and sometimes even marry) known serial killers who are serving out their time on Death Row. 

Joy Krause, the film's director-screenwriter, has traveled a long road in her journey from novice filmmaker to media darling, now often appearing on talk shows and news services as an expert on the ever-fascinating topic of (some) women's romantic obsession with serial killers. 

Serial Killer Groupies began as a short film project for Ms. Krause as part of her 'Documentary II' class at UTC. Joy's fascination and the subject's need to be explored in further detail, though, soon ballooned the film to feature length -- attracting an L.A. producer and subsequent offers from several television networks in the process. 

Doors open at 6 p.m. for a mix and mingle time and the screening will be at 7 p.m.

Heritage House, the home of 'The Backlot', is at 1428 Jenkins Road. 

Admission is free with a potluck (non-alcoholic) food or drink item to share. 

The Backlot is an informal mixer designed to connect young filmmakers, movie-lovers, "indies", and working professionals as well as encourage film and video production in the Southeast Tennessee region. 

Typical events at The Backlot include presentations by working professionals, casting calls for short films and features, screenwriting workshops and readings, and screenings of recently completed films and essential "film study" classics. 

Anyone with an interest in the process of filmmaking (either 'in-front-of' or 'behind' the camera) is welcome.

Roy Exum: The Loving Hands…

For a great part of my life that I spent with my family at the former Chattanooga News-Free Press, we were in a lockjaw fight with the family who owned the Chattanooga Times. Up until the 1970s the two newspapers existed under the same roof, splitting expenses, but that got sour when the Times had a lot more “expenses” than we were duty-bound to share. So then my grandfather ... (click for more)
