Pray for Daylight to Premiere! (June 2, 2007)

Pray for Daylight, Stone Soup Films’ micro-budget feature-length DV movie, will premiere at the Riverview Theater in Minneapolis, MN, on June 28th, 2007. The show is free to cast, crew, and their friends and family.

“This is our way of thanking everyone involved in the project,” producer Tony Bruno said. “A lot of people poured their hearts into the movie. It’s only fair that they get to see their work on the big screen.”

Completed in the summer of 2006, the movie has played at MarsCon 2006, the 2006 Fargo Fantastic Film Festival, and CONvergence 2006. A poor-quality transfer has also been available on the Internet since September, 2006.

Seating for the 5:30 PM showing will begin at 5:15. Information about the Riverview theater is available at its website.

3 1/2 Out of 4 Cigars — “Pray for Daylight”‘s First Review (June 1, 2007)

Stone Soup Films’ first feature-length project, Pray for Daylight, received its first official review from the Rogue Cinema website.

“I’m stunned,” Producer Tony Bruno said. “But in a good way, not in a ‘I’m a rabbit about to be put into a boiling pot,’ way.”

Reviewer Brian Morton claimed that the film brought a “refreshing twist” to the vampire hunter genre. He pointed out that the plot did play a bit like a soap opera, and could be a bit confusing. Nevertheless, he enjoyed the picture.

“He just got it,” Pray for Daylight creator and the actor behind Eric Saveau Rick Sullivan said. “That’s enormously satisfying.”

“Somebody with zero affiliation with our movie popped it into their DVD player, watched it, and enjoyed it,” Tony Bruno said. “That’s just awesome.”

The review is available at the Rogue Cinema website.
