A child star of the classic ghost epic is now the multihyphenate creator of a story of human derangement, and a new trailer has been unveiled.

Oliver Robins is the writer/director/star and one of the producers (with Michael Baumgarten) of CELEBRITY CRUSH, which sees release next Tuesday, May 26 from Kyyba Films. The cast also includes Alissa Schneider, Melissa McNerney, Jonathan D. Lee, Wade Williams and Eddie Craig. The synopsis: “When the B horror movie CHAIN-FACE CLOWN was released in 1985, no one knew the film would one day become a classic. Well, at least by a select group of horror movie fans. The film’s biggest fan, 29-year-old Emily Lynessa [Schneider], always knew she was going to meet and fall in love with Jonathan Blaklee [Robins], mid-40s, the star of CHAIN-FACE CLOWN. Her plan is simple: Meet Jonathan at an upcoming signing for the DVD and lure him back to her home, where Jonathan will be imprisoned until he realizes Emily is the one for him.”
