He’s an accidental sensation - sort of the super hero who couldn’t that resiliently keeps chugging along. He’s Super Undead Doctor Roach.
Having previously caught the eye of celebrity blogger Robin Leach and invaded odd underground and bondage events, the crowd-pleasing short film is now online.
See it now at SuperUndeadDoctorRoach.com via Vimeo.
Edited, produced, written & directed by Chad Clinton Freeman (Killer Biker Chicks), the short film was originally a seven-minute 48 Hour Film Project in April of 2009.
Starring Derek Houck (Silent Night, Zombie Night) as the short’s title character, the film went on to screen at the Arizona Underground Film Festival.
The 13-minute director's cut of Super Undead Doctor Roach screened in March at Xanadu Las Vegas, a science fiction, fantasy, horror, fetish and bondage convention for adults only.
“It’s 48 Hour Film Project season again,” Freeman said. “I thought putting the short online would be a fun way to celebrate both Dr. Roach and the project as a whole, as well as the recent success of my first ever film festival - PollyGrind.”
The Polly Staffle Grindhouse Fest, an international event predominantly known as PollyGrind, screened 13 features and more than 31 shorts, trailers and music videos over the course of five days in May. The event’s highlight was a standing room only sellout of Dead Hooker in a Trunk. Freeman is currently looking for sponsors, advertisers, donors, etc. to make sure the second installment of the PollyGrind is even bigger and better.
As for Super Undead Doctor Roach, Freeman says he hopes people watch it, send him feedback and rate it on Vimeo, as well as IMDb.
Although there have been talks of expanding it into a feature, Freeman says he is currently developing other projects, including The Wacky World of William Wheaton, Area 86, Radioactive Zombie Hookers, and Parabella Nigel: Saiko Saikik Witch Bitch.
“I’ll say this, I don’t think we have seen the end of him,” Freeman said. “He’s proven to be quite the survivor. Madonna once likened herself to a cockroach and said ‘you just can't get rid of me.’ I think the same can be said about Super Undead Doctor Roach.”
