Hollywood to Host Premiere of Henrique Couto Film

The Pittsburgh-area premiere of Henrique Couto's film "Depression: The Movie" is at Hollywood Theater tonight.

Dormont's Hollywood Theater will play host to two unique independent films today, Friday, one of which is a Pittsburgh-area premiere.

The first film, "Depression: The Movie," isn't as depressing as it sounds. This new, offbeat comedy from indie director Henrique Couto follows four down-on-their luck characters who struggle to make their way through life's obstacles.

A brief question-and-answer session with Couto will follow the film.

As part of the same event, Jeff Burr's rarely-shown film "Eddie Presley" also will be shown. The film about an ex-Elvis impersonator who gets a second chance is based on the play by Duane Whitaker.

Couto's previous films include the horror/comedy "Marty Jenkins and the Vampire Bitches" (2006); "Slay Ride," a contribution to the anthology "Faces of Schlock" (2009); and "Bleeding Through" (2012), which was shown earlier this year at the Horror Realm fall convention in Pittsburgh.

Jeff Burr has directed numerous horror sequels, such as Pumpkinhead II: Blood Wings (1994), Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III (1990), Stepfather II (1989), and two installments of the Puppet Master series.

Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and "Depression: The Movie" begins at 8 p.m. "Eddie Presley" will begin at 9:45 p.m. Admission is $10 and includes both films.

More information is available on The Hollywood Theater website.
