    Report: The Stanley Film Festival, an Essential Horror Retreat

    Traveling to the Stanley Hotel is already something of a pilgrimage. The historic lodge, built in 1909 and famous for its spectral activity, looms over Estes Park, CO, surrounded by stunning, natural but also otherworldly landscape. Then of course, there’s the fact that it was a catalyst in the mind of Stephen King; his own stay there inspired THE SHINING, one of the most seminal works of horror there is. Lucky for us then, The Stanley Hotel, the Denver Film Society and programmers Michael Lerman and Landon Zakheim have enhanced the inherent aura of the locale with the Stanley Film Festival. A weekend-long celebration of genre in all its forms, which wrapped its second edition over the course of April 24-27, is quickly establishing itself not only as a perfect horror vacation, but as growing into a vital horror retreat—an essential destination for all those who worship at the altar of the macabre.

  • Dallas! “CHAINSAW” Vets-Starring “SACRAMENT” Screening in June!

    Dallas, are you ready for some genuine southern horror? Writer/director Shawn Ewert will premiere his upcoming independent horror feature film SACRAMENT on June 7th at the historic Texas Theatre in Dallas, TX!

    The project was principally shot in the Dallas-Ft. Worth metroplex and features the talents of genre icons, such as TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE stars Marilyn Burns and Ed Guinn, as well as many up-and-coming and established talents from the region.

    SACRAMENT (not to be confused with the upcoming Ti West film THE SACRAMENT) follows a group of seven friends who embark on a road trip to South Texas for booze, bud and bonding but are derailed by an approaching tropical storm. They seek refuge in the quaint, conservative Texas town of Middle Spring, which is in the process of hosting a huge barbecue and tent revival. Charismatic preacher Isaac Renneker, his enterprising son Brahm and his devout congregation are determined to cleanse the world of sin, and before long the kids realize that there might be more to the town’s famous barbecue than just a good spice rub.

    The film calls into question hot-button topics like religion, homophobia, relationship dynamics, and survival instinct while retaining a very human approach to the characters. FX artists Matthew Ash (CIRCUS OF THE DEAD) and Hobbes LeCompte (DEVOTION) handled the ample, bloody prosthetic effects gags. For more on the film and the special June 7th screening, visit www.sinners4dinner.com.
