Full Horror Lineup Announced for Slamdance 2015


slamdThe 21st annual Slamdance Film Festival kicks off next month in Park City, Utah, and on tap for you today is the full lineup of horror titles that will be premiering at the event. So read on for a complete rundown of this year’s horror highlights!

The lineup comes our way courtesy of The Wrap, and first up is a film called Bloodsucking Bastards, starring Cabin in the Woods‘ Fran Kranz. In the James O’Connell-directed film, an office worker at a soul-crushing company loses his coveted promotion to his longtime nemesis and subsequently begins to fear for more than his job as strange disappearances and bizarre deaths suggest the office is turning into a haven for the undead.

The cast also includes Pedro Pascal, Joey Kern, Joel Murray, Emma Fitzpatrick, Yvette Yates, Justin Ware and Marshall Givens.

Next up, a gullible man goes on a quest to find a mysterious, destructive monster in Footprints, only to arrive at a surprising revelation. Bill Plympton directs.

Santiago Menghini’s Intruders is also on this year’s lineup, which hails from Canada. In the aftermath of a deadly haunting in a small suburban home, an omnipresent entity causes havoc in the private lives of a young boy, an unsuspecting teen and an absent-minded inspector. Joshua Young, Charles Sirard Blouin, Sarianne Cormier and Alain Gendreau star.

As previously announced, Michael Steves’ Clinger will also premiere, co-written by Steves, Gabi Chennisi Duncombe and Bubba Fish. With a cast that includes Vincent Martella, Jennifer Laporte, Julia Aks, Lisa Wilcox and Debbie Rochon, the film centers on Fern Petersen, whose life is thrown into turmoil when her possessive boyfriend dies in an accident. Things go from bad to worse when he returns as a love-sick ghost to kill her so they can be together for eternity.

And finally we have Body, directed/co-written by Dan Berk and Robert Olsen. Three twenty-something girls break into a mansion and inadvertently murder the groundskeeper in the horror flick, and they slowly self-destruct as they decide what to do with the dead body in the living room. Helen Rogers, Alexandra Turshen, Lauren Molina and Larry Fessenden star.

The 2015 Slamdance Film Festival takes place at the Treasure Mountain Inn in Park City, Utah. It kicks off January 23rd and runs through the 29th.
