Chris Morrissey's Award-Winning Horror Movie TRICK OF THE WITCH Begins Exclusive Streaming Debut

After years of successful film festival screenings and a LA and NY theatrical tour, the award-winning supernatural horror film TRICK OF THE WITCH by filmmaker/actor Chris Morrissey is making its exclusive streaming debut on his official YouTube channel FREE for a limited time period.

Trick of the Witch centers on a group of fashion models fighting a witchcraft curse during a photo shoot. The film premiered in 2010 at the New York International Independent Film Festival and won awards for Best Horror Film and the Audience Award. The film had a theatrical run in Los Angeles at the Laemmle Sunset 5 in 2011. The film recently screened and won awards for Best Actress, Director's Spotlight, and the Audience Award at the 2016 RIPP Horror Festival and screened along with Morrissey's most recent feature film Heavy Makeup at the Los Feliz 3 Cinemas in Los Angeles.

Trick of the Witch stars indie film starlet Share Cherrie (Hollywood Babydoll, Superstar Female Serial Killer), Owen Alabado (Shameless), Rebecca Da Costa (The Bag Man, WILD Oats), Suzy Cote (TV's CSI, The Guardian) and Gia Franzia (L.A., I Hate You, Special dEaD). Chris Morrissey wrote and directed the film which has gained a cult following over the last few years. The film was produced by Morrissey with star Share Cherrie, and co-producers Lacey Rollins and Brittany Andrews.

"Watching movies in theaters is a huge passion of mine" says Morrissey. "I've held off releasing all of my films on DVD and Blu-Ray over the years because I really wanted people to cherish that theater experience. I was working on scheduling a new double-feature theatrical screening tour of both Trick of the Witch and Heavy Makeup at the start of 2020 and then the pandemic hit. Everything I planned got put on hold indefinitely as all of the cinema's sadly closed. I used to watch movies practically every single day in theaters, but during quarantine, I began to watch movies at home and actually started to enjoy it. Things are now starting to slowly re-open but not everyone is able to return to theaters just yet. It feels too early to resume a full blown in-person screening tour right now. As a special treat, I really wanted to give people a chance to watch the film until everyone feels comfortable going back to theaters."

The film will remain on Morrissey's YouTube Channel for the next couple of months and then he will remove it as he begins to resume plans for another cinema tour later this year.
