BLOOD FEST: Rooster Teeth’s First Horror Feature Film To Hit The Theaters In August!

BLOOD FEST: Rooster Teeth’s First Horror Feature Film To Hit The Theaters In August!

Summer festival fans will be tearing off their wristbands in terror when horror-comedy Blood Fest takes over their screens this August. Starring Robbie Kay (Peter Pan in Once Upon a Time, Hannibal Rising), Seychelle Gabriel (The Spirit, Falling Skies, Weeds), Jacob Batalon (Avengers: Infinity War, Spiderman: Homecoming), and Rooster Teeth’s own Barbara Dunkelman (RWBY) with Tate Donovan (Manchester by the Sea, Argo) and featuring a to-die-for cameo by Zachary Levi (Thor: Ragnarok, TV’s Chuck), the film is written and directed by Owen Egerton (Follow, author of the novel The Book of Harold, the Illegitimate Son of God).

Following a screening at RTX Austin the first weekend in August, Blood Fest will terrify cinema audiences with a special one-night Fathom event in more than 600 movie theaters across the U.S. on Tuesday, August 14. Tickets will be available starting Friday, June 29 at www.FathomEvents.com or participating box offices. Longtime distribution partner Cinedigm will then release the film in theaters and on digital, cable and satellite platforms on August 31st. The film will also be made available on Blu-ray+DVD combo pack from Cinedigm starting October 2nd.

“After premiering at SXSW and playing for festival crowds around the world, we are thrilled to finally be able to share Blood Fest with our community and horror fans everywhere,” said Matt Hullum, Rooster Teeth co-founder and CEO. “It still gives me chills to see our films on the big screen, and I can’t wait for everyone to be able to see it.”
“Cinedigm and Rooster Teeth have had a successful partnership for over eight years and we are excited to expand our role in taking their new movie Blood Fest out theatrically and as a day-and-date release. Blood Festrepresents the high-quality content that comes from their studio. Leave it to them to find an entirely unique and thoroughly entertaining new twist to the horror genre,” said Bill Sondheim, President of Cinedigm.
Hailed by critics and fans as “an already wild party where someone has spiked the punch” (Kimberley Elizabeth, Nightmare on Film Street), Blood Fest follows fans who flock to a festival celebrating the most iconic horror movies, only to discover that the charismatic showman (Egerton) behind the event has a diabolical agenda. As festival attendees start dying off, three teenagers (Kay, Gabriel, Batalon) more schooled in horror-film clichés than practical knowledge about neutralizing psycho killers must band together and battle through various madmen and monstrosities to survive.

The film premiered at SXSW 2018 and screened at the Cleveland, Fantaspoa and Edinburgh International Film Festivals. Dread Central has already noted it “could become the party horror film of the year.”

SCREAM COMES HOME: Kickstarter Launched For Epic Party At The House From Wes Craven’s SCREAM!

SCREAM COMES HOME: Kickstarter Launched For Epic Party At The House From Wes Craven’s SCREAM!

Are you are die hard SCREAM fan? Then you don’t want to miss the chance to attend a once-in-a-lifetime SCREAM party and screening of the iconic horror movie at the actual house where its classic ending took place!

SCREAM COMES HOME will take place on the weekend before Halloween, which is October 27th – 28th, 2018, with the main day of the event happening on Saturday (the 27th).

WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT?
Nate Ragon is a movie memorabilia collector and a huge SCREAM fan, and Anthony Masi is a horror movie producer and event planner. They met in 2011 when Anthony was producing “STILL SCREAMING,” a feature-length documentary about the making of the first three SCREAM films.

Seven years later on one random night, Nate texted Anthony and asked, “Do you think it’s really possible to party at Stu’s house?” Sharing a lifelong love for the horror genre, they joined forces to create a unique and unforgettable event for fellow fans of the SCREAM series… a re-enactment of the party from the last act of the movie… minus the killings, of course!

In the movie, Stu (played by Matthew Lillard) is hosting a giant party when the killer shows up, and causes things to get real bloody real fast. At our event, however, we’ll just keep partying and hope Ghost Face doesn’t make an appearance!

The event will also feature a bus tour, which is being designed to take you efficiently around Santa Rosa to see eight filming locations, including:

  • Sidney’s House
  • Casey Becker’s House
  • Woodsboro High School
  • Woodsboro Town Square
  • Woodsboro Police Station
  • Tatum’s House
  • Video Store
  • Grocery Store

Scream Factory To Bring Three Classic John Carpenter Films To Blu-ray On July 24th!

Scream Factory To Bring Three Classic John Carpenter Films To Blu-ray On July 24th!

On July 24, Scream Factory will release three excellent films from the canon of John Carpenter (Halloween, The Thing) on Blu-ray, Memoirs of an Invisible Man, Someone’s Watching Me, and In The Mouth of Madness, the latter in a new Collector’s Edition.

In The Mouth Of Madness [Collector’s Edition] boasts several exciting new special features, including a new audio commentary with director John Carpenter and producer Sandy King Carpenter, discussing the 1995 film.

Inspired by the tales of H.P. Lovecraft, this shocking story is, in the words of its acclaimed director, “horror beyond description!” Sutter Cane (Jürgen Prochnow, Dune, The Seventh Sign) is the best-selling author whose newest novel is literally driving readers insane. When he inexplicably vanishes, his publisher (Charlton Heston, Soylent Green, Planet Of The Apes) sends special investigator John Trent (Sam Neill, Daybreakers, Dead Calm) to track him down. Drawn to a town that exists only in Cane’s books, Trent crosses the barrier between fact and fiction and enters a terrifying world from which there is no escape.

Chevy Chase takes center stage in 1992’s Memoirs of an Invisible Man. Thanks to a nuclear accident, Nick Halloway (Chase) has become invisible. Invisibility makes it easier to spy on agents (particularly chief adversary Sam Neill) who’ve put him in his predicament. And he can romance a lovely documentary producer (Daryl Hannah) in a way she’s never “seen” before. John Carpenter directs and Industrial Light and Magic create eye-opening effects as Nick embarks on his manic quest.

In 1978’s Someone’s Watching Me, Los Angeles newcomer Leigh Michaels moves into a chic high-rise apartment building. She loves the view. So does the Peeping Tom who lives somewhere in the adjacent tower. John Carpenter writes and directs this thriller where the breath-catching suspense starts at the moment Leigh (Lauren Hutton, American Gigolo) is framed in the lens of a telescope. For Leigh, it’s the beginning of terrors that escalate from anonymous calls and gifts to lights that mysteriously flicker to prove that someone watches every moment of her life. Leigh fights back, matching her tormentor’s obsession with her own relentless drive to uncover his identity. The prey is now predator – and that escalates the stalker’s game to a deadly new level. Someone is watching.

He’s come home! Michael Myers is back in the first trailer for the next chapter in the HALLOWEEN saga. Check out the trailer below and weigh in with your thoughts!

Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.
