Killer Diller on Silver Screen
Many area residents helped make the film possible, and several appear in the 95-minute dramatic film.
"It's an exciting experience to see yourself in the movie," said moviegoer Kim Belly.
Director Tricia Brock grew up in Missouri which made the film more emotional for her and for many people who shared her experiences.
"It was just so beautiful over there when they were filming and being with the other actors for a day," said moviegoer Janice Reily. "That made it special. We felt part of the movie."
People come to this movie not only for the moving story, but also for familiar locations in Fayette, Boonville and Glasgow that add authenticity to the story.
"If more people would get to see this movie, they would just know how beautiful it is in Missouri," Brock said.
This is Brock's first feature film, although she plans to produce more of them in the Show-Me State.
"Killer Diller" is about a guitar-playing car thief who meets an autistic piano player. The two of them then transform a group of halfway house convicts into a killer-diller blues band.
