NYC: Free Screening of “FOUND” on August 18th!
FANGORIA will be hosting a free screening of the award-winning horror flick FOUND in New York City on Monday, August 18 at 7 p.m. This special showing, hosted by the filmmakers, will be held at the Cinema Village (22 East 12th Street, off University Place). Directed by first timer Scott Schirmer, FOUND has played more than 40 genre film festivals across the globe (including the New York City Horror Film Festival), where it won 15 Best Feature Film awards and multiple Best Actor awards for both of its young stars, Gavin Brown and Ethan Philbeck. Schirmer, author/co-screenwriter Todd Rigney and special FX artist Arthur Cullipher will be attending the show and participating in a Q&A, moderated by editor emeritus Tony Timpone.
The Fango screening of FOUND will be a free show; to obtain tickets, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. You must list “FOUND” as your subject line and provide us your full name. Offer is good for you and one guest. Names will be checked at the door. Offer is first come, first served, and we will confirm your rsvp. Seating is not guaranteed, however. This exclusive event is presented by our pals at XLrator Media, who will release FOUND August 15 in theaters, VOD and iTunes on its acclaimed “Macabre” genre label.
FOUND was produced by Leya Taylor and Damien Wesner. It is based on the novel by Rigney, who co-wrote the screenplay with Schirmer. In the chilling story, Marty (Brown) is the ideal fifth grader. He gets good grades, listens to his teachers, and doesn’t start trouble in class. But a darkness is beginning to fall over Marty’s life. The kids at school won’t stop picking on him, his parents just don’t seem to understand him, and now Marty must grapple with a terrible secret that threatens to destroy life as he knows it—his big brother (Philbeck) is a serial killer! Brotherly love is put to the ultimate test in this emotional coming-of-age story that descends into full-blown horror.
