It's been several months since we've gotten an update on Sam Qualiana's Snow Shark: Ancient Snow Beast, but now the film has its premiere screening scheduled, a festival date in the works, and a brand new trailer.
Author and filmmaker Gregory Lamberson has announced three new theatrical screenings for Slime City Massacre, his gooey celebration of 1980s cult films which stars Debbie Rochon and Brooke Lewis and features cameos by Roy Frumkes and Lloyd Kaufman, taking place in Tampa, FL; Las Vegas, NV; and his hometown of Buffalo, NY.
While most of us are just starting to formulate a game plan for the upcoming new year, author and filmmaker Gregory Lamberson already has three new books on tap for 2012 as well as a feature film in the works, Scaremonger, starring Debbie Rochon.
The second annual Buffalo Screams Horror Film Festival has announced its film selections and schedule. In all, 48 films will screen at the five-day festival, which runs from Wednesday, October 26th through Sunday, October 30th at the Screening Room Cinema Cafe in Amherst, New York.
The Buffalo Screams Horror Film Festival will honor artist Tony Mauro for his achievements as a movie poster artist at its second annual festival and has also added special make-up effects artist Rod Durick to its guest lineup. Buffalo Screams runs five days, from Wednesday, October 26th, through Sunday, October 30th, at the Screening Room Cinema Café, located in the Northtown Plaza on Sheridan Drive in Amherst, New York.
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.
