Later this summer Slime City Massacre will be released theatrically through indieFilmNet’s new "Cinema Meets Horror" midnight movie-flavored series. IFN will make the film available to as many as 60 digital theaters in North America, which can book it as a midnight show, single screening, or full-on engagement.
