“BEST WORST MOVIE” PARTNERS WITH NEW VIDEO FOR DVD AND DIGITAL RELEASE
New York, NY – September 8, 2010 – How many people can claim they starred in the worst movie ever? Michael Paul Stephenson will forever be known as the screaming, whining, ten year-old who saves his family by urinating on their dinner. Today, he is the director and producer of BEST WORST MOVIE, a critically-acclaimed documentary inspired by his role in what has been crowned the worst movie of all time: TROLL 2. New Video, a leading independent film and TV distributor, announced today that BEST WORST MOVIE will be available on Tuesday, November 16, via DVD and digital platforms. A film festival favorite in 2009 and currently playing in theaters nationwide, BEST WORST MOVIE will be released under New Video’s Docurama Films brand. In this hilarious and heartfelt story about the strange nature of celebrity, a sunny Alabama dentist and a self-deluded Italian filmmaker struggle to come to grips with their role in the worst movie ever made. The result is a tender offbeat journey that pays homage to lovers of bad movies and the people who make them, while investigating a deeper story about the catharsis of redemption and the humanity that exists in making even the worst movie ever made.
The DVD includes more than an hour of deleted scenes and interviews; fan contributions, including music videos and mash-up trailers; Filmmaker Q&A with Creative Screenwriting Magazine, and a provocative message from TROLL 2’s Goblin Queen, Deborah Reed.
The DVD and digital release of BEST WORST MOVIE closely follows the Blu-ray release of TROLL 2 in October from MGM.
BEST WORST MOVIE is written, directed and produced by Michael Paul Stephenson; produced by Lindsay Stephenson, Brad Klopman and Jim Klopman.
