Founded this year as a launch event to kick off Dread Central’s third annual Indie Horror Month this March by Heather Wixson, producer and horror journalist with DreadCentral.com, 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 and often genre-bending line-up includes advanced screenings of two highly anticipated genre projects including Magnet Releasing’s visceral horror anthology THE ABC’s OF DEATH and Breaking Glass Pictures’ latest thriller K-11 directed by Jules Stewart (CRANK: HIGH VOLTAGE, MORTAL KOMBAT) as well as a retro screening of Scott Glosserman’s BEHIND THE MASK: THE RISE OF LESLIE VERNON.

Other new additions to the two-day schedule include the world premiere of Adam Barnick’s brand new music video for Rivulets latest song “How, Who” as well as Drew Daywalt’s latest short MEAT and a special screening of another short from Ryan Spindell, KIRKSDALE , which will precede a special screening of Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead’s 2012 festival favorite RESOLUTION on Sunday evening along.

CineMayhem will also 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 Zach Green, KILLER KART by James Feeney and FOXES by Lorcan Finnegan.

Little do the sisters know someone is watching them in the shadows. As the girls shower, study, eat and sleep, the stalker studies the girls. One by one he finds the girls at their most vulnerable and murders them. The police hunt for the missing girls and their killer, but will they find them in time? Or will the girls be forced to fight for their lives?

BLOCK TWO
2:00 PM- BREATH OF HATE (Sean Cain): One last job, and Love is out of the erotic escort business. Unfortunately, that final job is for a trio of escaped mental patients who are looking to change the world. One victim at a time. Q&A to Follow.

BLOCK THREE
4:15 PM- COLDWATER (Dave Parker): ColdWater is a psychological suspense thriller dealing with one man housesitting, unaware of who or what might be with him. Q&A to Follow.

BLOCK FOUR
6:30 PM- ROADSIDE (Eric England): Roadside is a high concept thriller that finds Dan Summers and his pregnant wife, Mindy, in a fight for their lives when they are held hostage in their car by an unseen gunman on the side of a desolate mountain road.

BLOCK FIVE
8:45 PM- THE ABCS OF DEATH (Jake West, Angela Bettis, Simon Rumley, Tak Sakaguchi, Yoshihiro Nishimura, etc.): Twenty-six directors. Twenty-six ways to die. The ABCs OF DEATH is perhaps the most ambitious anthology film ever conceived with productions spanning fifteen countries and featuring segments directed by over two dozen of the world’s leading talents in contemporary genre film. Inspired by children’s educational books, the motion picture is comprised of twenty-six individual chapters; each helmed by a different director assigned a letter of the alphabet. The directors were then given free rein in choosing a word to create a story involving death. Provocative, shocking, funny and ultimately confrontational, THE ABCs OF DEATH is the definitive vision of modern horror diversity. Q&A to Follow.

CineMayhem Party to be Held Right After THE ABCS OF DEATH at Bogart’s Bar & Grill inside the Muvico. All CineMayhem attendees may attend.

SUNDAY, MARCH 3rd

BLOCK ONE
12:00 PM- CINEMAYHEM SHORTS:
Foxes (Lorcan Finnegan): A young couple trapped in a remote estate of empty houses and shrieking foxes are beckoned from their isolation into a twilight world. A world of the paranormal or perhaps insanity.

Wrong Number (Patrick Rea): Two strangers connect when a wrong number brings them together. Starring Cinnamon Schultz (Winter’s Bone) and Joicie Appell (Nailbiter). Written by Amber Rapp, directed by Patrick Rea.

Familiar (Richard Powell): Through a series of tragic events, a middle-aged man grows to suspect the negative impulses plaguing his mind may not be his own.

Killer Kart (James Feeney): An evil grows, hiding in plain sight. Just four wheels and a basket, but forged of aluminum in the fires of Hell. Tonight, it will strike, and the closing crew of a small-town grocery store will be thrust into the fight of their lives against the devastation of… The Killer Kart!

West Coast Premiere- Him Indoors (Paul Davis): Gregory Brewster is a serial killer; only problem is, he’s agoraphobic! Facing an impending eviction from his family home, Gregory has a plan that will save him from being subjected to the one thing he’s terrified of… the outside world. Things don’t quite go to plan, however, when a surprise visit from his new neighbor finds him in a very awkward situation.

West Coast Premiere- Split the Check (Patrick Rea): See what happens when a waiter refuses to split the check for three annoying couples. Starring Michelle Davidson, Tasha Smith, Erin McGrane, Brad Meehan, Aaron Laue, Jason Miller. Directed by Patrick Rea.

Meet (Drew Daywalt): Two country boys have an encounter with a mythological creature from ages past.

World Premiere- The Root of the Problem (Ryan Spindell): Set in the candy-colored world of 1950s suburbia, a reluctant young housewife suspects that the friendly neighborhood dentist is hiding a horrible secret, but is it just the anesthesia at work or is there something more sinister hiding below the surface? Open up and say AHHHHHHHH!

Q&A to Follow Shorts Block

BLOCK TWO
2:45 PM- CineMayhem Retro Screening of BEHIND THE MASK: THE RISE OF LESLIE VERNON (Scott Glosserman): The next great psycho horror slasher has given a documentary crew exclusive access to his life as he plans his reign of terror over the sleepy town of Glen Echo, all the while deconstructing the conventions and archetypes of the horror genre for them.

BLOCK THREE
4:45 PM- K-11 (Jules Stewart): Like Alice in a brutally violent Wonderland, music executive Ray Saxx, Jr., is trapped in K-11, a very unique part of the Los Angeles County Prison System. He was out cold when he arrived, and he has no idea how he got there – all he knows is he needs to get the hell out…alive and intact. To do that, Ray must navigate through a maze of drug addled-transvestite-criminal politics with obstacles at every turn. Insane cellmates, corrupt guards and his own issues are just a few of what he’s dealing with while he pieces together his means of release from this dark and dangerous rabbit hole – K-11.

BLOCK FOUR
7:00 PM- RESOLUTION (Justin Benson, Aaron Moorhead): In an abandoned cabin on the edge of an Indian reservation, Mike (Peter Cilella) stages a risky intervention to force his friend Chris (Vinny Curran) off meth and into rehab. But what begins as an attempt to save his friend’s life takes an unexpected turn when ominous threats start appearing around the house – and they realize that Chris’s addictions are the least of their worries. One of the most talked-about discoveries of last year’s festival circuit, Resolution is genre-bending horror at its most bone-chilling. Q&A to Follow.

Thelma Is Fantastic and Now You Can Watch the Opening Scene

Published

on

One of this year’s most beautiful and subdued horror films is Joachim Trier’s Thelma (review), which opens in Los Angeles tonight. To give you a bit of what the film is like, The Orchard have released the opening scene, which shows a man and his daughter hunting in the bleak Norwegian winter. When they come across a young deer, the true intentions of this trip become apparent…

Having seen Thelma, I can tell you that it’s truly something special. It’s a slow burn, to be certain, but it plays out gorgeously, resulting in a film that has yet to leave my mind.

Related Story: Exclusive Interview with Thelma’s Joachim Trier

Locations and tickets for Thelma can be found here.

Synopsis:
Thelma, a shy young student, has just left her religious family in a small town on the west coast of Norway to study at a university in Oslo. While at the library one day, she experiences a violent, unexpected seizure. Soon after, she finds herself intensely drawn toward Anja, a beautiful young student who reciprocates Thelma’s powerful attraction. As the semester continues, Thelma becomes increasingly overwhelmed by her intense feelings for Anja – feelings she doesn’t dare acknowledge, even to herself – while at the same time experiencing even more extreme seizures. As it becomes clearer that the seizures are a symptom of inexplicable, often dangerous, supernatural abilities, Thelma is confronted with tragic secrets of her past, and the terrifying implications of her powers.
