MINNESOTA INDIE HORROR “LAKE RUNS RED” TO RELEASE 4TH CHARACTER TRAILER, “MELISSA,” ON DECEMBER 8TH, 2015
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MINNEAPOLIS, MN - DECEMBER 5th, 2015 - The producers of “Lake Runs Red,” an independently produced home-invasion horror feature, are proud to announce the upcoming release of their 4th official character trailer on Tuesday December 8th, 2015, via their official YouTube channel, YouTube.com/LakeRunsRed.
This 4th official trailer focuses on "Melissa," a twenty-one year old studious college student who begins the film as a shy, quiet, and timid girl-next-door but gradually discovers her inner strength through moments of intense crisis as the consequences of long hidden secrets are revealed. The “Melissa” character is played by Lauren Morris, an experienced theater actress, starring in her first feature film.
"Lake Runs Red" is employing a unique trailer strategy for their marketing campaign. The film is releasing five “character” trailers, each focusing on one of the main characters from the film. This is the 4th character trailer in an initial series of five.
"The Melissa character is a key ingredient to the complex story we’re telling. As the main character, she has a formidable and profound arc. She’s the linchpin holding the events of the film together,” said director and co-writer Jason Riesgraf. He continued, "Lauren Morris, the actress who plays Melissa, turned in a remarkable performance. This was her first feature film, but you wouldn’t know it, because she was a pro, through and through.”
Added Stephanie Riesgraf, producer of "Lake Runs Red", "Lauren Morris’ passionate performance pulls you in and takes you on an emotionally exhausting journey filled with fear, trepidation, sorrow, and panic. The performance community is definitely going to take notice of her.”
"Lake Runs Red" previously released their first trailer "Bruce" on July 14th, their 2nd trailer "Gwen" on August 11th, and their 3rd trailer “Lauren” on October 27th, to incredible fanfare.
