Hauppauge, NY - August 29, 2013 - The feature film Clubhouse, written and directed by award-winning Yuri Shapochka, will debut at the 30th annual Long Island Film Festival. Clubhouse stars Tim Abell (Soldier of Fortune) and Leslie Easterbrook (Police Academy, The Devil's Rejects).

Clubhouse, a revenge play and morality tale featuring Shapochka’s characteristic black comedy, deals with nefarious plots made against the life and property of a wheelchair-bound Iraq War veteran living in his family’s magnificent old Southern home. The story intertwines friendship and betrayal in a ragged community. The film is a compelling look at honesty and corruption, love and violence.

Shapochka’s team includes cinematographer David Brower and noted actress Leslie Easterbrook, who is best known for her performance as Sergeant Callahan, the tough instructor in the Police Academy movies. Easterbrook is also known for her role as Mother Firefly in the box office hit The Devil’s Rejects.
