In response to rave reviews from its first Independent Grindhouse program in the spring of 2010, Horror Realm and Bastards of Horror are once again teaming up to present an evening of independent horror on the big screen. Independent Grindhouse 2 is slated for December 11, 2010 at 10 PM at the Oaks Theater in Oakmont, PA.
The program will feature two independent horror films:
- Intrusion (2008) is a groundbreaking, critically acclaimed psychological horror/thriller by writer Craig Everett Earl. The upcoming sequel, Intrusion 2: Disconnected, has already won an award from Fright Night Film Fest for best screenplay and received great script reviews from critics.
- Psychopath (2009) is a slasher film written and directed by Robert Elkins. The film follows the story of Sarah, who misses a desperate call from her stranded twin sister Tara, then sets off with friends to find her in the backwoods town of Raven’s Neck, home to a brutal escaped mental patient.
Independent Grindhouse 2 will also include a short film and horror trailers. Psycho Santa will be returning for his second annual holiday appearance, terrifying guests and handing out inappropriate goodies to the naughty and nice.
Horror Realm has adopted a needy client of Mainstay Life Services for this year’s holiday gift drive. The gentleman is in his 40’s and lives on his own. He has been diagnosed with developmental disabilities and mental health issues. Mainstay provides him with supportive services to be able to continue to live on his own but he has no family to share the holidays.
Attendees are asked to consider a donation by bringing an unwrapped gift item. Suggestions include:
- Hat, gloves, scarf
- Slippers (size medium)

- Kitchen towels, dish cloths, pot holders
- Personal care items – regular or travel sized – razors, soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrush, etc.
