    Default ScreamfestLA Lineup

    Screamfest LA Horror Film Festival Announces First Wave of 2011 Film Slate | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central

    screamfestla.com

    First Wave Screening Highlights at Screamfest 2011 (more titles to be added shortly):

    • Rosewood Lane (US) – Directed by Victor Salva (Jeepers Creepers, Jeepers Creepers II), starring Rose McGowan (Scream, Grindhouse) and Lauren Velez (“Dexter”). A radio talk show psychiatrist (McGowan) returns to her hometown and notices the unusual behavior or her neighborhood paperboy. World Premiere

    • Julia X 3D (US) – Directed by P.J. Pettiette in 3D. Julia (Valerie Azlynn) stars as an alluring predator who meets her match on an internet date with a man whose hidden profile is a blend of Ted Bundy and Hannibal Lechter. The man in question is none other than “Hercules” himself, Kevin Sorbo, of whom The Hollywood Reporter says, “He’s a mesmeric nutcase.” The Reporter continues, “The depth is enhanced, as well, by a multi-dimensional plot with doses of cheeky humor and verbal panache as well as in-your-face visual thrusts that make keen use of the format.”

    • Livide - Livid (France) – The centerpiece film from directors Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury (A’l’interiur – Inside, which played at Screamfest in 2007). A hunt for a hidden treasure in a desolate house leads a group of friends into a horrifying supernatural series of events.

    • Vamperifica (US) – “The King is coming out!” A clueless, flamboyant college kid discovers that the soul of a great vampire king lives within him. Now he must choose between his friends and his destiny. Starring Dreama Walker (“Gossip Girl,” “The Good Wife”) and Martin Yurkovic.

    • Stormhouse (UK) – Stars Katherine Flynn (daughter of Jane Seymour) in a tense, supernatural thriller. The military has captured and imprisoned an entity that now wants to come out and “play.” North America Premiere

    • DeadHeads (US) – The feature debut from writer/director siblings Brett and Drew Pierce. Two “level-headed” zombies find themselves amidst a zombie attack and decide to take a road trip to find a lost love, all the while being trailed by special agents.

    • Cassadaga (US) – Directed by Anthony DiBlasi (Dread). A deaf girl attempts to contact her sister during a séance only to connect with a murdered woman. World Premiere

    • Rites of Spring (US) – From executive producer John Norris (The Help). Fear has a season. A ransom scheme turns into a nightmare for a group of kidnappers who become victims of a horrifying secret that must be paid every spring. World Premiere

    • Isolation (US) – Directed by Stephen T. Kay (Boogeyman) and starring Eva Amurri (“Californication” and daughter of Susan Sarandon) as a medical student who awakens in hospital isolation room desperately ill with no recollection of how she got there. World Premiere

    • Enter Nowhere (US) – Starring Scott Eastwood (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D and son of Clint) and Sara Paxton (Shark Night 3D and The Last House on the Left). Three strangers arrive one by one at a mysterious cabin in the middle of nowhere only to learn they’ve been brought together for a reason. World Premiere

    • Kalevet – Rabies (Israel) – Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado have made Israel’s first slasher film a worthy one in this “beautiful people-tormented in the woods” horror/comedy. Groups of people fall into the clutches of a serial killer in a spooky fox preserve. Kalevet wields a tart wit, several innovative twists on genre conventions and a heaping helping of bloody mayhem.

    • The Tunnel (Australia) – An investigation into a government cover-up leads to a network of abandoned train tunnels deep beneath the heart of Sydney. As a journalist and her crew hunt for the story, it quickly becomes clear the story is hunting them. Rolling Stone says “The Tunnel is a cunningly crafted exercise in suspense!” US Premiere
    After a lackluster few years, this lineup, although lacking in HUGE titles seems to have a far better across the board lineup. Adgy ain't gonna be keen on Victor Salva's inclusion, but at least he did time for his mistakes. More titles to come too. I'll do some due dilligence on these and give you a heads up as to where your best bets are but I am happy with the quality so far.

    It will be at the Mann Chinese barring a catastrophic change. Livide is clearly the prize but there are some real nice little gems sparkled throughout.

    Great cast and a cool as hell premise. I will try to make it to this one.

    A little competition a couple weeks beforehand?

    24Framespersecond.net - Shriekfest announces it’s line up for 2011

    It looks like this might be more geared towards independent folks trying to make it? I'm not familiar with a single title. JD, you heard anything about any of these?

    Looks like admission is cheap, too.

    Yeah Shriekfest has been around for a while...and it is definitely the indy end of the spectrum. From what I have read almost 'student-film' end of the spectrum. Prolly folks shopping ideas and technique more than actual movies. Sure to be a diamond in the rough or 2, but I have to imagine there is a lot of 'rough'. Hell, I submit myself to bad low budge actual releases I cannot imagine seeking out any of these unless I had very strong word beforehand. And even then I would map out the exits.
