Dying is easy and makes comedy hard in an upcoming fright film homaging the Italian greats.

It stars Steve Vanderzee, Eric Stone, Angela DiMarco, Lowell Deo, Meranda Long, Marcus Leppard and Jeffrey Arrington; the synopsis: “A stand-up comedian on the verge of breakout success must make a terrible choice when he discovers a murderer on the loose in the theater where he’s about to perform his biggest show.”
