After an opening weekend sellout on April 2nd of  two screens at the Plaza Theatre in Atlanta, Georgia, the 40th Annual Atlanta Film Festival has added a closing night encore of “Frankenstein Created Bikers” at 7:30 pm at 7 Stages Theatre on April 10th, 2016.

The rowdy World Premiere began with a pre-party at The Highland Ballroom followed by red carpet photos with the cast and a memorable introduction from director James Bickert and actress Tristan Risk. The enthusiastic crowd was treated to free theatrical posters signed by the stars of the film. Celebrity guests in attendance included Jack McBrayer (30 Rock), Tyler Mane (Halloween) and Mark Borchardt (American Movie). 

“It was a magical night and the crowd response was beyond all expectations. I don’t think we’ve ever heard that much cheering in a theater. I’m really proud of this film and everyone involved. We’re going to have a few surprises for our encore too,” said Bickert.

Lensed in 10 Georgia cities on Super 35mm film, “Frankenstein Created Bikers” centers on the re-animation of the South’s most notorious biker gang – The Impalers. Dr. Marco and his assistant are performing gruesome experiments in their asylum lab and have resurrected the thrill-kill motorcycle club to capture a Bigfoot carrying a pathogen that will allow them to perform a human head transplant. When news of the gang’s resurrection draws the attention of bounty hunters, law enforcement and rival gangs, the lofty aspirations of these mad scientist start to spiral out of control. Things get even worse for the occupants when failed experiments escape from the basement and their lab is attacked by a bomb-happy femme fatale named Val.
