Film Spurs Cult--of the Deadly Awful?
When life hands you lemons ... write a press release about your awesome lemonade. The producers of low-budget kung-fu flick "Royal Kill" (filmed in D.C.!) didn't mind our critic Dan Zak's thumbs down last week ("don't see it, under any circumstances"). They celebrated with a press release: "Cult-Film Washington Post Does Not Want You To See." The release, reprinted on Cinematical.com, declared Zak's pan will "bring the independent film to the cult status" and "proves that small projects can leave a gigantic impression." Yesterday, they made the best of their $26,278 opening-weekend take with another release bragging that the per-theater average (it's in five cinemas across the country) was higher than that of Seth Rogen's "Observe and Report" (in 2,727 theaters): "One of the lowest budgeted movies ever to play at the multiplexes."
