Kyle Steinbach, UO’11, pulled together a crew that included many talented alumni of Cinema Pacific Adrenaline Film Project productions, and directed this impressive debut feature. Bad Exorcists, a horror-comedy, premiered at the Cinequest Film Festival in San Diego in February. The film follows three very uncool high school friends: Charlie, Matt, and Dana. In a last-ditch effort to earn their classmates’ respect, the trio aims to win the local horror film festival. Things might finally be going their way—until their attempt to film an exorcism scene results in the demonic possession of their lead actress. The boys are in for a raucous and hilarious weekend as they try to save the girl and somehow finish their film, all while navigating the treacherous world of high school.
Hosted by Jeff Wadlow, Leigh Kilton-Smith, and Omar Naim

Come see the results of Eugene’s sixth Adrenaline Film Project. On Friday, April 24, several teams of filmmakers will be assigned a genre, given a line of dialogue and a prop to be incorporated into their productions. For the next 72-hours, they will pitch, write, shoot, and edit their films, turning them in at 5:00 p.m. on Monday, April 27. The mentors who guide them through the 72-hour process (Jeff Wadlow, Leigh Kilton-Smith, and Omar Naim,) will host the films’ premieres, and the assembled crowd will vote for an Audience Award. A jury of film professionals will also give one film its top prize, the Kalb Award, and the mentors will select a third-prize winner. Following the screening, your ticket will get you into the celebratory Adrenaline Afterparty, featuring music and refreshments in the Erb Memorial Union (EMU) Ballroom!
