If you’re a regular reader of Dread Central, then you know that March is officially Indie Horror Month around these parts. A time when we celebrate our future horror maestros! This year we’re kicking it off with a bang!
From the Press Release
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. CineMayhem will also be screening several other award-winning short films including FAMILIAR by Richard Powell, KILLER KART by James Feeney and FOXES by Lorcan Finnegan as well as a few retro indie horror screenings to be announced soon.
Ticket information and the full CineMayhem line-up will be announced later this month; to keep up with all the CineMayhem to come this March, fans can follow CineMayhem on Twitter and give them a “Like” on the official CineMayhem Facebook page.
