Indianapolis filmmaker Morgan Mead will screen his latest film, My Bloody Wedding, at the Indiana State Museum‘s IMAX Theatre on Saturday, February 26, 2010. The feature length film recently premiered at the Derby City Film Festival in Louisville, Kentucky. After screening at Indiana University in Bloomington, Ball State University in Muncie and Purdue University in Lafayette, the film has finally arrived in Mead’s hometown: Indianapolis. Saturday’s screening begins at 7:30 pm in Indianapolis downtown. Tickets to this Indianapolis art event are $13.50.
My Bloody Wedding is the story of one young mama’s boy journey towards marriage. Doug (Patrick Babbitt) is engaged to the beautiful young Callista (Morgan C. Mead). All is right in the world of this dorky virgin, until he notices changes in his bride to be. When he catches Callista sneaking around with her ex-boyfriends and lying to him, he fears his virgin status is a deal breaker for their marital bliss. In a mad cap adventure, Doug discovers his fiance’s dirty little secret: she has been possessed and turned into a cannibalistic maniac.
All is fair in love and war, and once Doug discovers the truth he must declare war on the love of his life. Its up to him, his best bud Steve (Kyle More) and one crazy gardener, Clyde (David Flutz), to dispose of the demon possessed bride and bridesmaids before the entire wedding party becomes finger food. In an inventive, dark and, of course, bloody story, Morgan D. Mead offers a popcorn film for Hoosiers to snack on. (Just be sure to finish your treats before the wedding scene!)

Morgan D. Mead was raised in Northern Indiana, but is currently a resident of the Circle City. He attended Ball State University where he studied TV and Film Production, then transferred to NYFA Film School at Universal Studios in Los Angeles, where he received his degree. He co wrote the film with collaborator Morgan C. Mead, who also stars as the demon possessed bride, Callista.
The inspiration for the film came to Morgan D. Mead after an arduous wedding season as a videographer for hire. My Bloody Wedding was his inventive response to a much needed catharsis. Though not the first project Mead has worked on (by a long shot) My Bloody Wedding is definitely the biggest for Mead to date. Help pack the house at the Indiana State Museum’s IMAX theatre for the Indianapolis premiere of the film. We might just be buying tickets to his summer blockbuster next!
After the film enjoy the sights and sounds of Indy downtown. Head to the dinner at any of the number of Indianapolis restaurants or Indianapolis bars nearby. The Indiana State Museum as prime Indianapolis real estate along the Indianapolis Canal Walk and the White River State Park. Take midnight winter stroll along the canal and see the Indianapolis skyline all lit up.
