Hamilton’s Fright Night Theatre to premiere German Thriller, “RADIO SILENCE” and Short “CALL GIRL”


Hamilton, Ontario’s continuous genre screening programme and year-round film fest, Fright Night Theatre (presented by Horror in the Hammer and sponsored by Fango) will host two Canadian premieres this June when German thriller RADIO SILENCE and American short film CALL GIRL take their big screen bows at The Staircase Theatre. 

“Fright Night Theatre is honoured to host the Canadian Premieres of both these exciting, thrilling, and terrifying directorial debuts,” offers the official release. Hot off its sold-out Hamilton Premiere of Troma’s RETURN TO NUKE ‘EM HIGH (Vol. 1), Fright Night Theatre continues to combine the best aspects of a film festival with the intimate and interactive atmosphere of a grassroots revival cinema. As official selections, RADIO SILENCE and CALL GIRL will be eligible for audience-choice awards as well as selection committee awards to be announced at the end of the year.

Directed by Marco Riedl and Carsten Vauth, RADIO SILENCE centers on a pirate radio host, who is the only person that can prevent a serial killer from slaying his next victim. CALL GIRL meanwhile, from director Jill Sixx Gevargizian, is a menacing micro-movie told from the point of view of a web cam, in which one man’s attempt to exploit his date night via online video-chat ends up sharing something far more disturbing. 

The two films unspool June 28 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10 in advance, and $12 at the door. You can find trailers for both films, below. For more visit the official home of Fright Night Theatre.
