Plaguers Awarded, North American Premiere Set
Director Brad Sykes dropped us a line this week with the good news that his latest film, the Steve Railsback-starrer Plaguers, was a rousing success during its premiere at Spain’s recent Estepona Fantasy & Horror Film Festival, taking home a Silver Unicorn Award for Best Screenplay.
Very cool news indeed! So when will those of us in the U.S. get to see it? ”Plaguers has been selected as the Opening Night film for Shockerfest in Modesto, CA,” Sykes told us. ”It will screen at midnight on Oct. 3, 2008. This will be the film’s North American premiere, and I’ll be in attendance along with producer Josephina Syke. Start Halloween early this year and be the first to catch Plaguers on the West Coast!”
For those of you who missed our previous story on the film, Plaguers is the story of a fuel-transport vessel on its way to earth that is highjacked by space pirates. They accidentally release a virus that turns anyone it touches into demonic creatures with a taste for flesh. Now the pirates and the crew have to fight together if they're going to make it out alive.
More info on Plaguers can be found over at its official site, so be sure to check it out. Below is a pic of the cast and crew from Estepona, basking in the glow of the film’s premiere!
