KSCB News - October 10, 2014 8:41 am
This time JFT Film Productions and Writer/Director Joel Trujillo return to Serpent Lake with the some familiar cast members of the first adventure film mixed with some new faces for “Serpent Lake 2: The Hunt for Bigfoot,” the world premiere of which is set for Oct. 11 at 2 p.m. at Liberal’s Southgate 6 Theater Complex.
“It’s been six years since we filmed the first ‘Serpent Lake’ which also premiered at Southgate 6. This second installment came at the request of many of our fans so this time we are looking for Bigfoot,” said Trujillo. “The stars of the movie will be there for autographs following the showing on Saturday.”
Returning to the role of Rocko Jackman “Jackaroo” is D. Brent McKinley of Elkhart. New comers are Troy Emery of Liberal as Todd Welling and Luigi Sollano of Ulysses as Ludvik Steranko.
As with all of his movies, and “Serpent Lake 2” is Trujillo’s eighth, DVD copies will be available immediately following the premier along with a selection of his other movies. While “Serpent Lake” is no longer available on DVD, those who like to view it may do so for a limited time on YouTube. “Serpent Lake” received praise from reviewers including “Fangoria,” a horror movie review magazine/website developed in 1979.
The message of the Bigfoot phenomena movie is “You can’t judge a book by its cover.” And Trujillo, who has won national video awards and recognition for his work including his five zombie movies, applies the significance of accepting others for what they are on the inside.
Trujillo explained his motivation, “It was time to explore something else after working on six zombie movies. My inspiration came from my good friend, the late Larry Howell, who supported me in my filmmaking goals and also had a role in Serpent Lake.”
Prior to the showing of Serpent Lake 2, the trailer to Trujillo’s next movie, “Blue Harvest” will be shown. “Blue Harvest” is examining Native American lore and the paranormal.
