Latest on “OxyMorons” Movie

Loaded Gun reports the latest status of the movie “OxyMorons” from the North End’s Damien DePaola (Ristorante Damiano), Director Robert Scali, Screenwriter John Hickey and featuring UFC fighter Tim Sylvia. The independent film was shot in Charlestown and the North End last Fall. Sam

“Based on the screen writer’s real-life experiences with drug addiction, the cautionary drug tale follows Hickey’s rise and fall as a player in the local Oxycontin trade. “OxyMorons” is a dark horror film about the effects of Oxycontin on a family, town and its inhabitants. What’s great about this made-in-Boston film is that the community is stepped up to help make the film a reality, including support from Charlestown Against Drugs and St. Catherine’s Church.”

“OxyMorons” was one of the three movies that came to the neighborhood council (NEWNC) regarding their street filming last September (see NEWNC Goes to the Movies, Hears Fortunes & Zoning Issues.)

Below is the 8-minute YouTube trailer and more information is at the movie’s MySpace page. The movie is expected to be released later this year.
