Call the Stonzek Theatre in downtown Lake Worth and say, "I want Hogzilla!"

If you didn't know, today (3/20) is the last day for the most recent film fest at the Stonzek:
First a little background about Hogzilla!: Dianne Jacques entered the race for mayor and lost huge in last Tuesday's (March 15th) election in an attempt to unseat our newly re-elected three-time Mayor Pam Triolo. It wasn't even close. There wasn't much attention given to Jacques on this blog because, well, there wasn't a whole lot to say. For a while she disappeared from the election scene and some speculated she had dropped out of the race. She missed a number of debates and the campaign reports were, shall we say, interesting.

However, there was one item that did draw a lot of attention: The movie Hogzilla! which was written, directed, and produced by none other than Jacques.

In the biography she supplied to the Neighborhood Assoc. President's Council (NAPC) prior to a candidate debate there wasn't enough space to include this film noir, the movie Hogzilla where it's claimed, "The Other White Meat Bites Back!"

Below is an excerpt from that bio the NAPC published:
Diane Jacques is a veteran film and television producer. Through projects like Sudden Terror for ABC Network and Splitsville for Bravo Network, she’s created millions of dollars in jobs and economic stimuli for numerous Florida communities. She’s struck deals with such luminaries as Ben Stiller, Oliver Stone and Johnny Depp, and is currently developing a cooking show for Inlet Grove High School where she works as a teacher.
Below is the movie trailer for Hogzilla. Enjoy!
The Stonzek Theatre here in Lake Worth should feature this movie some day soon. It would be a huge hit, no doubt.

On the subject of movies in Lake Worth, do you know the classic Body Heat starring William Hurt, Kathleen Turner (many think that this film launched her career), Ted Danson, and Mickey Rourke was filmed in downtown Lake Worth? It was! You can read about that using this link.
