Housesitter… The Night They Saved Siegfried’s Brain

WMU alumni film screening at Thriller! Chiller! Film Festival in Grand Rapids

Robin Nuyen graduated with a theatre degree in 1980 and met fellow theatre student Richard during a production of Hamlet. In 1987 they co-wrote, co-produced and directed Housesitter… The Night They Saved Siegfried’s Brain. Filmed entirely in Kalamazoo, the movie sat unfinished for thirty years. Now, with post sound from Skywalker Sound and final picture from Paramount Pictures color department, it is at last completed. Combining 1980’s horror and 1950’s sci-fi, the film starred three former professors from the theatre department and was shot in part in Shaw Theatre. 

Housesitter… The Night They Saved Siegfried’s Brain is the closing feature on Saturday, Oct. 27 at 6 p.m. in Peter Wege Auditorium. There will be a Q&A immediately following the film with the creators. Tickets are $10.
