From the Press Release

Infected, a new horror/sci-fi action film that will be in theaters this Halloween, brings you the story of a father and son hunting trip and their fight for survival when a blood virus infects a small group of hunters. As they’ve been doing for years, the duo are first to arrive at the peaceful cottage that their hunting club rents each deer season, and as the other club members arrive, they begin the familiar, relaxing task of setting up the cabin. While deep in the woods, cut off from civilization, they spend a long weekend cleaning, rekindling old friendships, and hunting. Kelly, the cabin’s caretaker, arrives in a panic with news that her grandmother is ill. When the grandmother disappears in the woods, it is quickly apparent that she is not sick from just any ordinary virus. There are then reports of hysteria and brutality in rural wooded areas throughout New England. Where the violence is coming from is unknown and almost universally unprovoked. Normal men and women, young and old, have started to commit unimaginably horrific acts. As the infection begins to spread through the hunting club one by one, decisions have to be made, and old friends are left behind. You see that all creatures must either evolve to meet new threats and protect themselves from the predators at the door or face the possibility of extinction. Infected is produced by Chad A. Verdi, Noah Kraft, and Gino Pereira; written by Glenn Ciano and Rob Rotondo; and directed by Ciano. This is a world premiere you won’t want to miss!
Infected stars Michael Madsen (Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2, Donnie Brasco), William Forsythe (Inkubus, The Devil’s Rejects), Christy Romano (Mirrors 2, Even Stevens) and Tom Denucci (Self Storage and Inkubus).
Our sneak peek movie, Self Storage, which will be released in early 2013, brings you the story of Jake, the night watchman working at a highly secured self-storage facility, whose friends are home from college and looking to party. When Jake invites his buddies to his work for a small fiesta filled with innocent mischief, the evening slowly turns a naughty night of sex, drugs and rock and roll and then into pure terror. Barbed wire fences are meant to keep people out, but these fences keep people in! Produced by Chad A. Verdi and Gino Pereira, Self Storage was written and directed by Tom DeNucci. This is a sneak peek that will definitely leave you wanting more!
Self Storage stars Eric Roberts (The Dark Night, The Expendables, Best of the Best), Jonathan Silverman (Weekend at Bernie’s, Inkubus), Michael Berryman (One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, The Hills Have Eyes) and Nick Principe (Laid to Rest, Chromeskull: Laid to Rest 2).
