For 2011, The Fringe Files showcased new comedy whodunit spoof The Curse of Miss Fortune, written and directed by Michael Starr, with assistance from Quintin Mitchell.
Here's the official video trailer:
Traditional British 70’s satire meets Classic 50’s transatlantic noir, with a dollop of 80’s B-movie magic. Introducing The Curse of Miss Fortune, a minimalistic cross-genre satire comedy featuring a gullible couple, a sex-mad boss, a seductive femme fatale, an angry landlord, a flirty secretary and a cursed pig?!
