Contracted: Phase II – Part II

September 14th, 2015 ~ 10:44 pm

On September 3rd, we went to the Arena Theater for the official premiere of Contracted: Phase II. I took my buddy Peter because my husband doesn’t like body horror movies and I’m not really in it enough to warrant going to see the whole thing. We went to dinner nearby then got to the theater where I didn’t know anyone yet! But then eventually people I actually knew showed up.

There was a red carpet with photographers and some ladies doing interviews. I did 2. I have no idea if I came off as a goofball or what. It was pretty fun. We tried getting some group shots, but it was confusing who to look at and we didn’t all fit well, so there are some pretty silly ones.

Josh did a fun intro to the film and the full theater was very loud (in reactions) and seemed to be having a good time.

After the film we went over to Boardners where I caught up with Adam and Brian (mini Delivery Reunion!). I also tried to convince them to watch Southland Tales again because it’s the best. I met some new people including a director I am Facebook/twitter friends with but never met in real life. He just looked so familiar and then I was like- “Oh! I don’t actually know you in real life! Nice to meet you!”

I got home pretty late (1am?) and then had to get up at 5am for work, so I was maybe still drunk when I woke up? Eh, maybe. Anyway, the cold I forgot to mention I contracted after coming home from Chicago almost 2 weeks before, and was just about over- came back! So I was once again coughing all day. Ugh.

Friday night was the actual opening night and a bunch of cast and crew planned on going and invited a lot of friends, so I still went out. I just really couldn’t stay and hang out after. Booo! I did manage to have one awkward not-recognizing-people-moment before I left though. I forgot what Mike, the DP, looked like. I should have reviewed everyone’s Facebook before going out, but I forgot to. Plus his profile is a dog, so I’d have needed to really go in and find a photo. I really do have to do that pretty often. I felt like a dumb ass, but oh well. It was like 9 months ago since we were in the same room. And my brain is shitty at people-remembering. :(

So yeah, now you can see Contracted: Phase II on VOD (iTunes, Amazon, etc.)! Hooray! It’s suuuuper gross.  The special effects are VERY good. In a little while I’ll make my posts from the shoot days public.  I just don’t want to post spoilers.

UPDATE:

Forgot all these photos from Thursday and Friday nights:

Peter movin' and shakin' on the phone. Morgan waits for his interview My interview #2 Oh yeah, Jason Ritter was there, but I never talked to him besides "Excuse me" after bumping into him.

Opening Night

Yeah. We did it!
