Today the first-ever CineMayhem Film Fest was announced by founder Heather Wixson, producer and horror journalist with DreadCentral.com. Created as a launch event to kick off Dread Central’s third annual Indie Horror Month this March, CineMayhem will celebrate the past, present and future of independent genre filmmaking at the Muvico Theaters in Thousand Oaks, California, on March 2nd and 3rd.

Created as a way to pay homage to and celebrate the spirit of independent filmmaking and those unafraid to take risks with their storytelling, CineMayhem’s diverse line-up includes advance screenings of two highly anticipated genre projects including Magnet Releasing’s visceral horror anthology THE ABCs OF DEATH and Breaking Glass Pictures’ mind-bending drama K-11 directed by Jules Stewart (Crank: High Voltage, Mortal Kombat).

CineMayhem is also thrilled to announce that it will be hosting the World Premieres of ROADSIDE directed by Eric England (Madison County) and the latest short film from Ryan Spindell (Kirksdale), THE ROOT OF THE PROBLEM, as well as the West Coast Premieres of two other short films- Paul Davis’ (Beware the Moon: Remembering An American Werewolf in London) HIM INDOORS and SPLIT THE CHECK by Patrick Rea (Nailbiter).

Other feature films currently selected for the CineMayhem Film Fest include BREATH OF HATE by Sean Cain (Silent Night, Zombie Night), COLDWATER by Dave Parker (The Hills Run Red) and THE SLEEPER by Justin Russell.

Zac Efron Looks Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile as Ted Bundy

Published

on

We told you a while back that Zac Efron would be assuming the role of charismatic serial killer Ted Bundy in Oscar-nominated documentary filmmaker Joe Berlinger’s new film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (that title is a wondrous mouthful); and today Efron himself took to Twitter to share the first image of himself as Bundy. Check it out!

Michael Werwie wrote the script for the project, which is told through the perspective of Elizabeth Kloepfer, Bundy’s longtime girlfriend, who went years denying the accusations against Bundy but ultimately turned him in to the police. Only nearing his execution, when Bundy began talking about his extensive and heinous murders, did Kloepfer, and the rest of the world, learn the true scope of his numerous and grizzly murders.

Principal photography began back in October 2017.

Make a Date With The Devil and Father Amorth

Published

Well, that headline’s not entirely accurate… you wouldn’t want to be a third wheel now, would you? What we’re talking about here is William Friedkin’s new documentary The Devil and Father Amorth. In it Friedkin witnesses first-hand the work of the Vatican’s in-house exorcist; and if that doesn’t pique your interest, I don’t know what will!

Deadline is reporting today that we can expect to see the flick sometime this spring in theaters via The Orchard.

Known as the “Dean of Exorcists,” Father Amorth (who turned 92 not so long ago) has performed thousands of exorcism rituals to rid evil from the human body.

In the early 1970s when I directed The Exorcist, I had not witnessed an exorcism; but I wondered how close I had come to portraying reality,” Friedkin tells the site. “I had been curious to meet Father Amorth for many years; and when he granted permission to meet and film him in Rome last May, it was the opportunity to complete the circle and see how close that film came to reality.
