ATLANTA — The mood for the Matthews 18 movie premiere party was jubilant and full of hysterics and innocent naughtiness, a radical departure from the dark, haunting and sinister undertones in the Roy Belfrey-directed horror film about spiritual angst.
Perhaps the talent were unleashing the tension and built-up angst caused by their experiences of filming inside a reputed haunted house. Unlike in the movie, comedienne Luenell and featured actress Jennifer Jayleen Martinez were full of hi-jinks that included the evening’s host, Big Tigger of V-103, along with Tammy Rivera of VH1′s “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta,” Vine Celebrities Shod Santiago and DC Young Fly and WNBA wife Bo Talley.
Matthews 18, the suspense thriller about the age-old argument of religion versus scientific evolution, opens in select cities and theaters on Friday, Nov. 14.
In the interim, peep out some of the photographic highlights from the premiere party at Strip.
