So what do we got? What horrors do we have kept stash away in our vault of tricks?
Friday, we have a night filled of Fight and Friday and a dash of Fitzgerald. Master Ron Fitzgerald that is, and he will be performing his own dark arts up on stage.
Also, On screen and on stage, we will be showing many great films throughout the night, featured will be the films "Scare Zone" and "Imurders," both followed by Question and Answers after their prospective showings. For "Scare Zone", director Jon Binkowski and star Arian Ash will both be in attendance and answering questions following their screening. For "IMurders," Robbie Bryan, Brooke Lewis, and Harry Manfredini will be in attendance and answering questions.
Friday will close with a special double header of films. We will be showing "Pig Hunt" starring Primus's Les Claypool and for a special midnight showing, we will show "A Werewolf in a Woman's Prison."
Think you can survive? If so, Saturday is filled with films and more as well. For those who feel that they can scream like a scream Queen, you can try to. Or at least scream your head off until it explodes. Either way, it's fun to watch. But come out and have fun with our "I Want to Hear You Scream" contest, and yes, guys are welcome too.
And after your done screaming, you can get ready and get zombified. Come join in the fun for Sinister Visions "Zombie Pin-up" contest. Just no leaving body parts around the theater. Thank You.
And that's all in addition to the films we will be showing. "Psycho Holocaust," produced by Hank Carlson, effects artist who worked on "Army of Darkness" and more, now takes up his hat on producing. Following the film will be cast and crew on hand to answer questions.
