In conjunction with Dread Central’s Indie Horror Month, the first ever CineMayhem Festival gets underway this first weekend in March, celebrating all manner of uncompromising genre.
Writer Heather Wixson, who you can find tirelessly toiling away at Dread, has founded CineMayhem as a way to celebrate the past, present and future of independent genre filmmaking. The fest will run March 2nd and 3rd at the Muvico Theaters in Thousand Oaks, California and is set to include insane-o anthology THE ABCs OF DEATH, Paul Davis’ much buzzed short film HIM INDOORS and the latest from HILLS RUN RED director Dave Parker. Here’s the rundown, via release:
CineMayhem’s diverse line-up includes advance screenings of two highly anticipated genre projects including Magnet Releasing’s visceral horror anthology THE ABCs OF DEATH and Breaking Glass Pictures’ mind-bending drama K-11 directed by Jules Stewart (Crank: High Voltage, Mortal Kombat).
CineMayhem is also thrilled to announce that it will be hosting the World Premieres of ROADSIDE directed by Eric England (Madison County) and the latest short film from Ryan Spindell (Kirksdale), THE ROOT OF THE PROBLEM, as well as the West Coast Premieres of two other short films- Paul Davis’ (Beware the Moon: Remembering An American Werewolf in London) HIM INDOORS and SPLIT THE CHECK by Patrick Rea (Nailbiter).
Other feature films currently selected for the CineMayhem Film Fest include BREATH OF HATE by Sean Cain (Silent Night, Zombie Night), COLDWATER by Dave Parker (The Hills Run Red) and THE SLEEPER by Justin Russell. CineMayhem will also be screening several other award-winning short films including FAMILIAR by Richard Powell, KILLER KART by James Feeney and FOXES by Lorcan Finnegan as well as a few retro indie horror screenings to be announced soon.
