Dread Central will be hosting free screenings of Mitch (The Hamiltons) Altieri’s award-winning horror comedy The Night Watchmen on Monday, November 13 in Brooklyn, New York and on Tuesday, November 14 in Los Angeles. The movie, about bumbling warehouse guards who must fend off a vampire outbreak, played over three dozen film festivals (including Montreal’s Fantasia and the NYC Horror Film Festival) to much acclaim and took home at least two dozen major prizes. Top cast and crew will be appearing at the shows in both cities!
The Night Watchmen stars Ken Arnold (“House of Cards”), Dan DeLuca (“The Wire”), Kevin Jiggetts, Max Wilbur (Thrill Kill), Kara Luiz (“Betas”), Tiffany Shepis (Night of the Demons) and James Remar (“Dexter”). Arnold co-wrote the film with DeLuca and Jamie Nash (Altered).
New Yorkers can catch The Night Watchmen (and eat a great meal in the process!) at the world-famous Brooklyn Alamo Drafthouse Cinema (445 Albee Square West; 718-513-2547) on Monday, November 13. Dread’s Tony Timpone will provide the meet & greet there. The fun begins at 7 pm at the Alamo.
DreadVision’s LA screening will take place at Hollywood’s swanky Arena Cinelounge Sunset (6464 Sunset Boulevard; 323-924-1644) on Tuesday, November 14 and will be hosted by blogger/filmmaker and Dread buddy SpookyDan Walker. Show starts at 7:30 pm.

Three inept night watchmen, aided by a young rookie and a fearless tabloid journalist, fight an epic battle to save their lives. A mistaken warehouse delivery unleashes a horde of hungry vampires, and these unlikely heroes must not only save themselves but also stop the scourge that threatens to take over the city of Baltimore.
These exclusive events are presented by our pals at Orama Filmworks and Gravitas Ventures, who are releasing The Night Watchmen on Blu-ray, VOD, iTunes, Google Play and Amazon on November 21.

“I loved The Night Watchmen and it totally deserves full marks…It’s the horror comedy of the year. Bloody. Hilarious.”—www.deeomen.com
