Buffalo, NY, is a hotbed of horror happenings these days, and later this month Dry Bones and The Legend of Six Fingers, which were shot back-to-back in the area, will have their Double-Feature World Premiere there.
The event is happening Thursday, September 26th, at the Market Arcade Film and Arts Center in Buffalo, followed by theatrical screenings at the Screening Room Cinema Cafe in Amherst. In addition, Dry Bones, which has a brand spanking new poster you can see below, has just been named an Official Selection of the PollyGrind film festival in Las Vegas.
Dry Bones was written and co-directed by author and filmmaker Gregory Lamberson (Storm Demon, Slime City Massacre), who also produced The Legend of Six Fingers, which was written and directed by Sam Qualian, Lamberson’s Dry Bones cinematographer. Debbie Rochon co-stars in Dry Bones and appears in The Legend of Six Fingersalong with Lynn Lowry and Tiffany Shepis.
“Sam and I didn’t plan to make these movies so close together; it just worked out that way,” says Lamberson. “Because the two films shared so many personnel, it’s fitting that we premiere them as a double-feature and they have theatrical runs at the same venue.”
Dry Bones tells the story of a man (co-director Michael O’Hear) who returns to the childhood house where he was traumatized by a monster under his bed. The monster turns out to be a succubus which has been waiting for him. Rochon plays three roles in the film.
In The Legend of Six Fingers, executive produced by Michael Raso of Camp Motion Pictures, two documentary filmmakers (Qualiana and Andrew Elias) set out to prove the existence of a legendary monster with three fingers on each hand.
Dry Bones screens at PollyGrind, the underground film festival which runs from October 9th-14th. The Legend of Six Fingers plays at the Screening Room in Amherst on Friday, October 11th, and Saturday, October 12th, at 9:30 pm. Dry Bones has a full week run at the same venue Friday, October 18th-Friday, October 25th.
Lamberson plans to line up additional play dates and film festivals for the films. “Screenings like these have become the equivalent of a national theatrical release for indie filmmakers. The venues are out there; we just have to find them and work with their management. We have two scary movies, and I want people to have the chance to see them on a big screen before they come out on DVD or Blu-ray.”
