Chicago Fear Fest Online
Chicago Fear Fest is shaping up to be one hell of a great time for Midwest horror fans when it hits Rosemont, Illinois, in April, and this week CFF has announced that one of our more highly anticipated sequels around these parts, Paco Plaza’s [REC] 3: Genesis, will be screening there.
[REC] 3 joins already announced programming at Chicago Fear Fest that includes Adam Green and Joe Lynch’s upcoming FEARnet series “Holliston” being shown during the fest (with the co-stars in attendance) as well as a special screening of Green’s Hatchet II, which will be shown uncut for Chicago fans.
Read on for all the details from the official press release, and look for more news soon, including a full line-up, for the first ever Chicago Fear Fest being held the weekend of April 13-14 at the Muvico Theater in Rosemont, IL.
From the Release:
CHICAGO FEAR FEST, the indie Horror Film Fest presented by Chicago based Horror Enterprises Flashback Weekend, Horror Society, Sinister Visions, and Zombie Army Productions are proud to present the eagerly anticipated Midwest Premiere of “REC 3”.
The original REC film makers are back ready to submit their ensemble cast to another fight for survival against the zombie infection. The action now takes place miles away from the original location and partly in broad daylight giving the film an entirely fresh yet disturbing new reality. The zombie infection has left the building.
Koldo and Clara are about to celebrate the most important day of their lives: their wedding. Everything appears to be running smoothly and the bride and groom and their families are enjoying a wonderful day; that is until some of the guests start showing signs of a strange illness. Before they know what’s happening, the bride and groom find themselves in the middle of a hellish ordeal, as an uncontrollable torrent of violence is unleashed on the wedding.
Amidst the chaos, Koldo and Clara become separated and begin a desperate search for one another. What started off as an idyllic day quickly descends into a nightmare of the worst kind…
All of the CHICAGO FEAR FEST entries will screen at the Muvico Theaters Rosemont 18. Located in Rosemont off of River Road and 294, the Muvico Rosemont 18 is Chicago’s premiere movie-going experience featuring elegant stadium seating, and state of the art Sony 4K digital projection, and Bogart’s; a full service bar and restaurant. The CHICAGO FEAR FEST after-parties will be presented by FEARnet in Bogart’s, a full service bar and restaurant located on the 2nd floor of Muvico Theaters Rosemont 18.
