If you’ve been thinking about attending Monster-Mania 14 this coming March 12th-14th, then a press release that crossed our desk today might help you make up your mind. Along with the myriad of guests who will be at the show, a special screening will be taking place of writer/director Jay Woelfel’s supernatural thriller Closed for the Season.
In addition to watching the film’s premiere, fans will be able to meet some of the key players as well as participate in a Q&A session regarding the production of Closed for the Season. From the press release:
Closed for the Season stars Aimee Brooks (Monster Man, The Mangler Reborn, Critters 3), Damian Maffei (the upcoming Joe R. Lansdale’s Mister Weed-Eater, Thomas Jane presents Suckerfish), and Joe Unger (A Nightmare on Elm Street, Leatherface, Broke Sky). Written and directed by Jay Woelfel (Live Evil, the upcoming Season Of Darkness with Richard Hatch, Tim Thomerson, and Tiffany Shepis, Unseen Evil) and produced by Jay Ellison and Jon Wagner with creature design and creation by Tony Gardner’s Alterian Inc. (Army of Darkness, Lord of Illusions, The Blob, Seed of Chucky), the movie is based upon folklore surrounding a once flourishing, fun-filled amusement park in Chippewa Lake, Ohio.
Producer Jon D. Wagner said “Monster-Mania is a perfect fit for the initial screening of CFTS. We want people who really understand and have a passion for the genre to be the first to see it.”
Closed for the Season tells the story of Kristy (Brooks), who finds herself trapped inside a decaying, abandoned amusement park with James (Maffei), son of the park’s caretakers. The pair finds themselves being tormented by a mysterious carny (Unger) and the long discarded and decrepit attractions of the park.
Scheduled as guests for the entire weekend and slated to appear at the screening are stars Damian Maffei, Joe Unger, and director/writer Jay Woelfel.
