CHAOS on the big screen in downtown Los Angeles on September 4th! Be There!
The controversial true crime horror feature film CHAOS will be showing on the big screen again in Los Angeles this Friday, September 4th, 2009 at The Downtown Independent Theater along with Lionsgate's MURDER-SET-PIECES, directed by Nick Palumbo.
A great deal of debate has emerged since the original U.S. national theatrical release of the gritty, realistic and truly terrifying feature film CHAOS in the fall of 2005.
Many members of the national press and viewers alike have contended that CHAOS has stirred them up in a way that few films of similarly strong nature have done in the last thirty-five years since the original release of the seminal THE LAST HOUSE ONTHE LEFT and THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE of the early 1970s.
Today, a succession of larger budget studio feature horror films with related themes have been released - such as the HOSTEL and SAW series - to either glowing reviews or an enormously growing fan base worldwide.
Unknown to a majority of new horror and true crime audiences is that many of those higher-profile feature films arrived on the heels of the production and release of CHAOS, as well as other contemporary independent films like Nick Palumbo’s MURDER-SET-PIECES and Takashi Mike’s AUDITION, which pre-date the aforementioned popular series.
CHAOS and MURDER-SET-PIECES are amongst the very last visceral, realistic and truly devastating independent horror movies shot on 35mm in a lineage that has rarely been reawakened theatrically in recent years until now.
We invite fans and members of the press will be on hand to re-examine both of these unusual and striking films.
CHAOS is the harrowing story of two young women who enter an irreversible and hellish descent into the hands of wayward psychotic gang leader Eddie "Chaos" Cooper and his degenerate cohorts "Frankie," "Swan" and "Daisy." It is a story based on true events. It is a story that happens every day. It is a story that you have to see to believe. It is the story of CHAOS.
Kevin Gage (Michael Mann's HEAT, Ridley Scott's G.I. JANE), Sage Stallone (DAYLIGHT, ROCKY V), Stephen Wozniak (BEYOND THE DAVINCI CODE, HOPE RANCH), KC Kelly, Chantal Degroat and Maya Barovich star in the brutal, realistic and horrifying true-crime feature film, CHAOS. Directed and written by David DeFalco. Co-produced and co-written by Marc Sheffler (The original THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT).
NATIONAL PRESS REVIEW QUOTES
“Don’t make the mistake of thinking CHAOS is only a horror film. Having seen it, I cannot ignore it, nor can I deny that it affected me strongly…and when CHAOS was over, I was filled with sadness and disquiet. The movie works.”
“CHAOS is well-shot and convincingly acted.”
- TV GUIDE
“This movie horrified me. CHAOS is blunt and brutal. CHAOS has done something no modern horror film has accomplished since 1973’s THE EXORCIST: Reacquaints us with our humanity. CHAOS comes at us with such unrestrained intensity that the movie doesn’t just cross the line, it leaves the line back at the horizon.”
- CHICAGO HERALD
“CHAOS is a well-crafted horror film. CHAOS is about brutality without the theatrics. CHAOS is the worst nightmare you’ve ever had. Perhaps the biggest surprise about CHAOS is the acting…pretty good performances.”
- AIN’T IT COOL NEWS
Select cast and crew, including actor Stephen Wozniak of CHAOS and MURDER-SET-PIECES director Nick Palumbo, will be speaking live for a Q & A panel discussion between each screening, as well as will be available for press interviews on the screening night.

After the recent international wide theatrical release of THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT re-make, produced by Wes Craven, special interest has arisen over the German DVD release of the other recent LAST HOUSE re-make, CHAOS, starring Stephen Wozniak, Kevin Gage and Sage Stallone. Germany’s Sunfilm Entertainment, distributor of such feature films as THE ALPHABET KILLER (Starring Academy Award-winner Timothy Hutton and Eliza Dushku) and SECRETARY (Starring Golden Globe-nominees Maggie Gyllenhaal and James Spader), has released a special edition German DVD of CHAOS in January of 2009.
Principal producing partners Stephen Wozniak and Ron Farber, of Inevitable Film Group, have teamed up with Academy Award-nominated and Pulitzer Prize-winning writer and director David Mamet (THE VERDICT, HANNIBAL, RED BELT) and innovative award-winning filmmaker Michael Worth to produce the dramatic feature film, COME BACK TO SORRENTO, based on the novel by Dawn Powell. Emmy Award-winning actors William H. Macy and Felicity Huffman have signed on to star in this project. Production is slated for a later this year.
