Pittsburgh, PA – September 30, 2013 – Fresh off its 5th anniversary convention, Horror Realm continues the scares with three film events in October at the Hollywood Theater in Dormont:
– Chiller Films and Horror Realm present The Monkey’s Paw on October 8 and 9 at 7:30 PM. Pittsburgh is one of only 13 select cities in the country hosting premiere screenings of the film. Tickets are $7 and available at the door only.
After Jake Tilton acquires a mystical “monkey’s paw” talisman that grants its possessor three wishes, he finds his world turned upside down after his first two wishes result in his malevolent coworker, Tony Cobb, being resurrected from the dead. When Cobb pressures Jake into using the final wish to reunite Cobb with his son, his intimidation quickly escalates into relentless murder – forcing Jake to outwit his psychotic friend and save his remaining loved ones.
The Monkey’s Paw is adapted from the renowned short story by W.W. Jacobs, and picks up where the short story left off. The film is written by Macon Blair and directed by Brett Simmons. Ross Otterman produced for TMP Films, LLC. Featuring Stephen Lang, CJ Thomason, Corbin Bleu, Michelle Pierce, Tauvia Dawn and Charles S. Dutton. www.monkeyspawthemovie.com
