Talent to Attend Dread Central’s Bicoastal Screenings for The Night Watchmen Next Week in NY and LA

Published

on

The stars of Mitch (The Hamiltons) Altieri’s award-winning horror comedy The Night Watchmen will be attending Dread Central’s free screenings of the movie next week. Ken Arnold, Dan DeLuca, and Dan Franko will be there on Monday, November 13, in Brooklyn, New York. Then on Tuesday, November 14, in Los Angeles, stars Kevin Jiggetts and Kara Luiz will be on hand.

The Night Watchmen, 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.

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. The show starts at 7:30 pm.

These DreadVision Night Watchmen screenings will be free shows; to obtain tickets, send an email to screenings@dreadcentral.com. Please tell us which show you want to attend by listing “Watchmen: NY 11/13” or “Watchmen: LA 11/14” in your subject line and provide your full name. The offer is good for you and your guests. We will confirm your RSVP, but seating is not guaranteed, so arrive early.

Synopsis:
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.

Check out this raves:
“The Night Watchmen, directed by Mitchell Altieri (The Hamiltons, The Thompsons), was made for midnight movie buffs. This demented cousin of Zombieland and Shaun of the Dead is as bloody as it is fun.”—Brussels International Film Festival

“…this latest throwback to the decade’s horror comedies is as gloriously demented as it is meticulously reconstructed. And with an undead horde of vampire zombie clowns running amok, there’s a lot of fun to be had.”—Starburstmagazine.com

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

“This one has ALL the makings of a potential cult classic. In the what-to-watch-when-you-and-your-friends-are-pretty-drunk category…this one is Citizen Kane material!”—Horrornews.net

“A little Shaun of the Dead, a little Half Baked and it gives you an idea of what to expect…The Night Watchmen is a film that could have a nice little cult following…If you are a fan of early ’90s cheese splatter horror, then look out for this one!”—Horrormoviesuncut.com

Synapse’s Suspiria 4K Restoration Gets a Release Date

Published

on

Earlier this year, we wrote about Synapse Films’ Suspiria 4K restoration and how it was available for pre-order. The weird catch was that there was no release date confirmed and that pre-orders would go out sometime in December 2017. Today that changes as we can confirm that the 3-disc special edition Blu-ray collection will come out December 19th, just in time for Christmas but a little late for Hanukkah. Any chance we can have one extra night this year?

Restored over three years, Synapse has been working tirelessly to create the ultimate version of Dario Argento’s 1977 classic supernatural horror film, which has since gone on to become one of the most recognized and lauded titles in the genre. This cut has been overseen and approved by Luciano Tovoli, the Director of Photography on the film.

Pre-orders are still available via Synapse Films’ website.

Special features:
*Limited edition of only 6000 units produced
*Exclusive Steelbook packaging and collector’s o-card sleeve, featuring artwork from Malleus, Van Orton Design, Juan José Saldarriaga & Chris MacGibbon
*Three disc [Two Blu-rays + One CD] limited collector’s edition (only 6000 units) containing a new 4K restoration of the original uncut, uncensored Italian 35mm camera negative exclusively done by Synapse Films, with color correction supervised and approved by SUSPIRIA Director of Photography, Luciano Tovoli
*Original 4.0 1977 English language LCRS sound mix not heard since the theatrical release in 1977, presented in high-resolution DTS-HD MA 96 Khz/24-bit audio
*Italian 5.1 surround sound mix
*Two audio commentaries by authors and Argento scholars, Derek Botelho, David Del Valle & Troy Howarth
*Do You Know Anything About Witches? – 30 minute SUSPIRIA visual essay written, edited and narrated by Michael Mackenzie
