LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Greater Lafayette horror fans will have the chance to see a movie made right in their hometown.

‘Straight Edge Kegger’ is making its Lafayette debut Friday, October 18th. The feature was written and directed by Jason Zink. Greater Lafayette locations and talent were used for the film. It recently won Best Feature at the Halloween International Film Festival.

Zink has been independently making films for 10 years. He is an avid horror fan and a punk rock enthusiast. He said the film is a mix of his two passions.

Shelby Barbee, the film’s producer, said filming in her hometown of Lafayette was a great experience.

“Growing up, I haven't seen very many movies where I can walk down the street and see where that was actually filmed.” Barbee said. “I think it's awesome to feature Lafayette in a movie, especially because you don't see it very often.”

Zink said shared passion among the crew made the production a success.

“This is just a skeleton crew. DIY, passionate people that are doing this ambitious project with very little.” Zink said. “We put our blood, sweat, and tears into it.”

Zink encouraged the people of Lafayette to give his film a chance, even if they aren’t huge fans of horror.

“The first half of the movie really isn't horror at all.” Zink explained. “It's more of a coming-of-age drama kind of thing, and then it turns thriller.”

The film will play at Carnahan Hall at 7:30 p.m. The screening will be followed by a performance by two punk rock bands.
