Fat Chance director Jim O'Rear premiered the Fat Chance movie at Movie Days/The Dark Zone film festival event in Dortmund, Germany. At the event, Fat Chance was awarded “Best Horror Comedy” which is pretty darn cool.

Here’s Jim’s post--
Sooooo.... This happened today in Germany... the international premiere of FAT CHANCE. And..... Yes... Winner for "Best Horror Comedy." Thanks to all who attended the screening. We appreciate you being there. The film was well received and our silly American humor translated well to the German audience. There was much laughter throughout the screening. The crowd loved everyone, but seemed especially entertained by Bob Bower and Ru Benjamin Revolver, who received laughs every time they were on screen. The reveal of the killer received a collective GASP from the audience and there was even a loud "shit" spoken... so, they obviously didn't guess who the killer was in advance. Awesome job, cast and crew, you blew the German audience away!

About Fat Chance:
Deviant Pictures, the company behind the recently released movie ‘The Hospital’ announce beginning of production on their new horror comedy ‘Fat Chance’ in Marion, Alabama. ‘Fat Chance is described by its makers as ‘The Biggest Looser’ meets ‘Friday the 13th.  The story as we know it thus far goes like this: When ten overweight men sign up to appear on a weight loss reality show taking place at a fat camp in the woods, they get more than they bargained for when contestants begin to disappear in mysterious ways.

Deviant Pictures owners Jim O’Rear and Daniel Emery Taylor, who are jointly producing and directing the film from a script written by Taylor, state, “We’re staying true to our horror roots with ‘Fat Chance’.

When we made ‘The Hospital’, we wanted to push the boundaries of some particularly taboo subjects in our society and create a disturbing and uncomfortable film, but with ‘Fat Chance’ we are taking it back to the campy, fun style of the early 1980’s films we grew up on, such as ‘Sleepaway Camp’, ‘Meatballs’, and ‘Friday the 13th’.  Lots of laughs, tons of excitement, and gallons upon gallons of blood.”

‘Fat Chance’ features Hollywood veteran actor and stuntman Dick Warlock (Halloween 2, Jaws, The Ting), WWF/WWE professional wrestler and actor Al Snow (Overtime), former porn actress, Penthouse
