One of my favorite films out of last year’s inaugural Cinepocalypse festival in Chicago was Get My Gun, a tense and unusually smart revenge thriller with an amazing performance by star Kate Hoffman (you can read my original review here). It’s a movie I’ve been anxious for others to see, and now it looks like everyone will have their chance, as Get My Gun is getting a limited theatrical release beginning in September:

From the Press Release: GET MY GUN, following its festival run, is now making its way onto the big screen at theaters in select cities this September. Met with critical praise from some of the top genre outlets, 'GET MY GUN is an absolute triumph of a film - a smart and compelling script that is flawlessly executed by way of three powerhouse female performances.' ~ Stephanie Malone (Morbidly Beautiful)

Written and directed by Brian Darwas, 'GET MY GUN is a grindhouse gem that tells a grueling tale of female empowerment, and doesn't hold back'. ~ Daniel Kurland (Bloody Disgusting).

Synopsis: Cleaning hotel rooms is how Amanda (a fearless Kate Hoffman) makes ends meet, but one day, she enters the wrong room. Brutally attacked, Amanda is left both emotionally shattered and pregnant. Looking to forge ahead, the resilient young woman must to tap into her basest survival instincts when a relentless stalker makes their intentions known.

Here the dates and theaters that Get My Gun will be playing throughout September. If you live near any of these areas, I strongly encourage you to make the trip to see it on the big screen. There's no word on a VOD or Blu-ray release yet, so this may be your only chance to see the film for a while. I’m hoping it makes a genre star out of Hoffman.
