The big standout coming to Screambox this month is HeBGBTV. Starting Friday the 13th, you can stream the much-anticipated title centered on "a multidimensional cable box" with nefarious intent. The cable box installs itself into a neighborhood with ultimate plans of world domination. The story follows two siblings as they channel surf, quite literally. For anyone who remember the 1992 classic Stay Tuned it sounds like a horrified version of that, with the addition of "The Purple Guy" and demonic lesbian possessions (which the Jon Ritter-starring Stay Tuned definitely lacked!) Here's more from the official synopsis.
HeBGB TV has something for everyone with a Halloween heart. A true DIY experience, HeBGB TV takes you through the horrors of late '90s television and twists them through a spooky, sci-fi lens. DIY to its core, HeBGB TV is a spooky, sci-fi story that takes you through the horrors and laughs of cable television. This film is a cacophony of comical commercials, perverse puppets, and monstrous music with a naughty dose of '90s nostalgia. HeBGB TV is indie horror comedy at its queerest. Directed, Produced, and Written by Adam Lenhart, Eric Griffin, and Jake McClellan.
