Visionary filmmaker Evan Glodell will be celebrating his SXSW 2011 premiere of Oscilloscope Laboratories’ BELLFLOWER this weekend by unveiling his hand-crafted, road ready and apocalypse- equipped car – Medusa. This unforgettable machine creates some of the film’s most high-octane moments amidst the romance cum revenge-fantasy tale of Woodrow’s journey of love, betrayal and vengeance.
Glodell, a former engineering student, constructed Medusa to be a real-life road monster. Unlike the Batmobile, Glodell’s Medusa is the real deal – no CGI or special camera tricks needed…the extraordinary features you see in the film are the same features you will see when you meet Medusa in person!
Medusa is equipped with two fuel injected exhaust flamethrowers with a 30,000 volt ignition system, smoke screen, a bleach drift-kit, adjustable rear suspension, 3 surveillance cameras (all in which are controlled from the dashboard), a customized apocalypse exhaust system, 6-71 Supercharger, posi rear end, a self-contained oxygen supply for chemical or underwater warfare, a roll cage, stow-able fold-down back seat and occasionally holds a sawed-off shotgun in the trunk in case of emergency.
Medusa is available for demonstrations throughout the 2011 SXSW Film Festival!
BELLFLOWER was a critic and audience favorite at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival for its visceral energy and gorgeous imagery all of which come together in a story of love and explicit mayhem on the outskirts of L.A.
“Evan Glodell is the writer, director, star and editor of “Bellflower,” this crazy movie about these kids who live in Oxnard, California, who build their own flame throwers and are obsessed with the apocalypse,” says Karina Longworth (NPR and LA Weekly) “And it’s a romance but the romance and the apocalypse elements are completely fused together, and it’s really violent and bloody. And it’s wonderful.”
BELLFLOWER will be released by Oscilloscope Laboratories on July 22nd, 2011
