FIRST TWO SCREENINGS ANNOUNCED FOR FIRST EVER ROCKS OFF PRO WRESTLING FILM FEST THIS NOVEMBER IN NYC
The first annual Rocks Off Pro Wrestling Film Festival is proud to announce the first screenings set for this November's Festival at the Kraine Theater (85 East 4th Sreet) in New York City:
WORLD PREMIERE SCREENING!
SEVEN LEVELS OF HATE (2013, Director Adam Pearce)
FRIDAY NOVEMBER 22nd - 6:30 PM SCREENING, Doors 6 PM
"Seven Levels of Hate" takes a deep look into one of the most celebrated feuds in the world of independent pro wrestling of the past several years between throwback villain "Scrap Iron" Adam Pearce and everyman hero Colt "Boom Boom" Cabana over the NWA World championship. Originally designed as a film to document the creative evolution of their seven match series, real-life drama forces the film to take a sharp turn as legal battles change the landscape of the National Wrestling Alliance, forcing established creative plans to go to hell. What happens when the wrestlers end up at odds with the promotion they are trying to help build and strengthen? Seven Levels of Hate tells that tale.
"Seven Levels of Hate" director Adam Pearce will be on hand for a post-screening Q&A on the film and his career. The film will be preceded by several "Steel Cage Shorts" to be announced.

FIRST NYC SCREENING!
PRO WRESTLERS VS. ZOMBIES (2013, Director Cody Knotts)
SATURDAY November 23rd - 8:00 PM SCREENING, Doors 7:30 PM
If the cast of the Walking Dead could throw dropkicks and arm themselves with steel chairs, their lives would be a lot easier...or would it? Writer-Director Cody Knotts' brand-new meshing of the zombie and pro wrestling genres - "Pro Wrestlers vs. Zombies" - sets an abandoned prison as the battlefield when a troupe of professional wrestlers are booked for a private show, only to find themselves face to face with the undead. Unfortunately for the zombie nation, they aren't just facing any group of professional wrestlers, they are facing living legends like WWE Hall of Famers Terry Funk and "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, Matt Hardy, "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan, former ECW World champions "The Franchise" Shane Douglas and Raven, Larry Zbyszko and even Olympic gold medalist turned WWE and TNA World champion Kurt Angle!
We are proud to present this special screening of Pro Wrestlers vs. Zombies, which will be followed by a special Q&A with Knotts and additional members of the cast and production to be announced!
