Best Supporting Actor, Eric Roberts, Best Breakout Action Star, Mike Pfaff, & Best Action Film, Lazarus Rising
A hit man and a woman with a secret try to evade teams of assassins headed by the lethal and relentless Mr. Gray, a low-level mob enforcer. Michael Fitzpatrick’s life was simple – nights with the beautiful Emma; then days littered by violence and bailing his genius, heroin addicted brother, Sean, out of trouble.
When Emma turns up on the hit list, everything changes. Michael (Mike Pfaff), Emma (Devon Ogden) and Sean (Sean Carmichael) find themselves on the run from the mob, led by mid-level dispatcher Dallen McCormick (Sal Rendino) and the merciless Mr. Gray (Adoni Maropis) who is called in to clean up the mess.
As the group evades death – Michael presses for the reasons behind Emma’s inclusion on the deadly list, Sean presses for Michael to ditch her and Emma presses to keep her secrets in order to get a fresh start.
With an election nearing and Senatorial hopeful James Connelly (Eric Roberts) unexpectedly getting involved, all paths converge and an explosion of wills and violence is imminent in Lazarus Rising.
Lazarus Rising, making its world premiere tonight at the Action On Film Festival, stars Mike Pfaff, Adoni Maropis, Lenny Clarke, C. Thomas Howell & Eric Roberts. You can learn more about the film HERE.
