The first annual CineMayhem festival is hitting Thousand Oaks on March 2nd and 3rd and the lineup so far looks to be a very promising one. Created by Dread Central‘s Heather Wixson, the festival will be taking place at Muvico Theater.
“Created as a way to pay homage to and celebrate the spirit of independent filmmaking and those unafraid to take risks
with their storytelling, CineMayhem’s diverse line-up includes advanced screenings of two highly anticipated genre
projects including Magnet Releasing’s visceral horror anthology THE ABC’s OF DEATH and Breaking Glass Pictures’ mindbending drama K-11 directed by Jules Stewart (CRANK: HIGH VOLTAGE, MORTAL KOMBAT). CineMayhem is also thrilled to announce that it will also be hosting the World Premieres of ROADSIDE directed by Eric England (MADISON COUNTY) and the latest short film from Ryan Spindell (KIRKSDALE), THE ROOT OF THE PROBLEM as well as the West Coast Premieres of two other short films- Paul Davis’ (BEWARE THE MOON: REMEMBERING AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON) HIM INDOORS and SPLIT THE CHECK by Patrick Rea (NAILBITER).
Other feature films currently selected for the CineMayhem Film Fest include BREATH OF HATE by Sean Cain (SILENT NIGHT, ZOMBIE NIGHT), COLDWATER by Dave Parker (THE HILLS RUN RED) and THE SLEEPER by Justin Russell. CineMayhem will also be screening several other award-winning short films including FAMILIAR by Zach Green, KILLER KART by James Feeney and FOXES by Lorcan Finnegan as well as a few retro indie horror screenings to be announced soon. “
I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely planning on attending, especially for COLDWATER. I loved Dave Parker’s THE HILLS RUN RED, so I’m looking forward to it. Anyone planning on going?
