Well, if you’ll be there on Friday, July 21st, we have just the ticket… a special “Mr. Mercedes” brunch including food, open bar, and a screening of an exclusive piece of content from the new series!
The event is being held at the WIRED Cafe on the Palm Terrace of the Omni Hotel (675 L Street) on the 21st from 10:00-11:15 AM PT (guests should arrive a little early for check-in). All you have to do to win one of two (2) pairs of tickets that we have available is send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org including your FULL NAME AND EMAIL ADDRESS plus the NAME OF YOUR GUEST along with “Mr. Mercedes SDCC Brunch” in your subject line. We’ll take care of the rest.
This contest will end at 12:00 Noon PT on July 18, 2017. You must be an SDCC 2017 badge holder and at least 21 years of age to attend. The winners will be notified via email on Tuesday, July 18, 2017.
Note: By entering this contest, you are consenting to allow Dread Central and its subsidiaries use of your email address.
DC staff member Ted Hentschke will be onsite also snapping pictures and joining in the fun so be sure to look for him at the event and take a selfie or two with him!
Starring Brendan Gleeson and Harry Treadaway, the 10-episode “Mr. Mercedes” is based off the Stephen King novel of the same name. The series is written, directed, and produced by the team of Jack Bender, David E. Kelley, and King himself.
Gleeson plays Bill Hodges, a detective way past his prime who gets his groove back when the psychopathic killer from a high-profile cold case re-emerges to mock him. Hodges is still bothered by the one case he couldn’t solve, a tragedy where innocents waiting to get into a job fair were maimed and murdered by a man in a clown mask who mowed them down in a stolen Mercedes. But that life is just a memory, and most of Hodges’ now sedentary existence revolves around beer and high-calorie food.
Old wounds are reopened when Hodges begins receiving strange letters, videos, and emails with a wicked smiley face from the “Mercedes Killer,” aka Brady Hartsfield (Treadaway), a computer store clerk who has an incestuous relationship with his mother (Kelly Lynch) and holds down a second job as an ice cream vendor to keep an eye on Hodges and his associates.
The show also co-stars Jharrel Jerome, Mary-Louise Parker, Justine Lupe, Scott Lawrence, Ann Cusack, Robert Stanton, Holland Taylor, and Breeda Wool.
Look for it on August 9th on Audience Network, available to DirecTV subscribers.

Victor Crowley was directed by Adam Green and stars Kane Hodder, Parry Shen, Brian Quinn, Laura Ortiz, and David Sheridan.
Ten years ago, forty-nine people were brutally torn to pieces in Louisiana’s Honey Island Swamp. Over the past decade, lone survivor Andrew Yong’s claims that local legend Victor Crowley was responsible for the horrific massacre have been met with great controversy, but when a twist of fate puts him back at the scene of the tragedy, Crowley is mistakenly resurrected and Yong must face the bloodthirsty ghost from his past.
