Skyway Film Festival Hosts Premiere of The Suffering


A couple months back we showed you the trailer for Robert Hamilton’s The Suffering, and today comes the exciting announcement that a date and location have been set for the horror film’s world premiere. The news comes courtesy of Hamilton himself so read on!

Per the e-mail sent to us today, The Suffering is an official “in competition” selection of the Skyway Film Festival in Bradenton, Florida. It will premiere on Saturday, June 13th, at the Manatee Performing Arts Center at 7:45 pm ET.

This limited seating premiere will be followed by a Q&A with co-writer/producer/director Robert Hamilton, co-writer/executive producer Marco Scola, and director of photography David Newbert. Tickets are available through the Skyway Film Festival website.

Written by Marco V. Scola and Robert Hamilton and directed by Hamilton, the film stars Nick Apostolides, Elizabeth Deo, Regen Wilson, Phil Amico, Chad Eric Smith, and Liz Christmas.

Henry Dawles is at a crossroads in life. A diminished bank account and a baby on the way with his estranged wife have his personal life in shambles. When Mr. Remiel, an elderly shut-in, offers Henry a lucrative sum to appraise his rural estate, he accepts without hesitation.

What follows is a harrowing exploration of mind and madness. A journey through an estate as vast and beautiful as it is secretive and horrific. When Henry closes in on the land’s dark truth, Remiel’s eccentric behavior takes a menacing and unforgettable turn.

In this twisted tale of morality and redemption, Henry must confront the terrors of his present while coming to terms with the horrors of his past.
