Norfolk – Virginia Made Movie Premiere – June 4 – $15




Gold, greed and wrath surface in “Kill Devil Hills,”
a horror-thriller from writer-director Butch Maier


VIRGINIA BEACH, Virginia – “Kill Devil Hills,” a horror-thriller movie from Virginia Beach writer-director Butch Maier and his Sumbadhat Productions, will make its world premiere Saturday, June 4, at The Naro theater, 1507 Colley Avenue, Norfolk, Virginia.


Tickets for the one-time-only special 11 a.m. premiere, which include a Q&A with select members of the cast and crew after the movie, are $15, must be purchased in advance and available exclusively online at:




“Kill Devil Hills” stars Sarah Kate Allsup, Shelby Johnson, Zay Perry, Leanna Criss and E.P. Macalma as five old friends, with Ashlyn Musser as a new acquaintance who joins them for a beach house getaway following a tragic event.


The discovery of a mysterious gold coin ignites curiosity in the house, at a pawn shop and throughout the Outer Banks, with deadly results.


“Pirates supposedly stored their rum in the sand dunes of Kill Devil Hills,” said Maier, who also plans to show the movie in the Outer Banks, where drone shots appearing in the picture were filmed, before expanding to more theaters. “I wondered what if they hid their treasure there, too, and then one day it surfaced. I figured where there would be gold, there would be blood.”


The movie was made with a Virginia cast and crew, with most from Hampton Roads. The film also features Leon Griffin, Stephen Carlson, Chris Korkalo, Ron Bianchi, Butch Maier, Jack Maier, Ethan Marten, Phillip Hines, Karen M. Bryson and Emmy-winning television anchor Regina Mobley.


Stanley Aughtry and Anthony Duncan were the movie’s executive producers. Sergio M. Lorenzana served as director of photography. The sound was mixed and recorded by Mike Fitzgerald. Music was composed by Nate Sparks.
