On March 13, 2010 beginning at 10pm, Horror Realm, Pittsburgh’s horror convention, will team up with the Oaks Theater to present a program highlighting independent horror films.
The program will begin with trailers for upcoming independent horror productions, followed by a screening of Welcome to Deer Creek, winner of the 2009 Horror Realm Feature Film Competition. The film was written and directed by Jim Roberts, a Kent State University student from Brecksville, Ohio. Welcome to Deer Creek tells the story of a small town’s populace turning into crazed killers during the annual corn celebration.
A question and answer session with Roberts as well as fellow filmmaker Rick “of the Dead” Fusselman of DSK Productions follows.
The final offering of the evening will be Holy Sh*t…Zombies!, a horror comedy that Fusselman concedes is “as un-PC as possible” and will “insult every demographic possible.” The film follows two slackers as they fight off zombies and is an indirect sequel of DSK’s 2005 film, Toxic Shock Zombies.
Tickets for the program can be purchased at the door the night of the event for $5. Each paid admission will be eligible for a prize drawing for a pair of weekend passes to the Horror Realm convention in September 2010. Details on the convention can be found at: Horror Realm Con.
While the films are unrated, due to the content, violence, blood and gore, it is recommended for adult audiences only (age 18 and up).
