Cannibal Corpse Killers follows Pike (Dennis Haggard, Hole) and a group of survivors as they endure a long, treacherous mission to Jawbone, a hotbed for cannibals in post-apocalyptic America. Now that a deadly virus has wiped out the nation, the group must cope with the recurring memories of those who died before them and defend themselves against cannibal demons. As they migrate anxiously through the desert, endless trouble surrounds the group once they learn of The Magistrate (Ron Jason, Legend of the Hillbilly Butcher), a man with a dark agenda to build an army of his own cannibal corpse killers. Now, Pike and the group must fight for survival as they work together to retrieve the answers they need to stop The Magistrate and his growing army of cannibals.

EVIL CAST Comic Book Series: "Have you ever wondered if you’d survive a horror story? Most horror fans have—it’s hard not to, especially when the genre is filled with characters prone to bad decision-making and protagonists who usually, inexplicably in the modern world, lack any awareness of horror movie tropes or monsters. These thoughts crossed the mind of author, filmmaker, and podcaster Kyle Stück (Give Me to the Waves, Humming Fools) more than once, and eventually in 2019 they resulted in the creation of Evil Cast, a love letter to horror, its conventions, and its fans.

Illustrated by Enrico Orlandi, creator of Dark Horse’s The Flower of the Witch, this indie-comic bathed in blood and self-awareness, follows fictional versions of Kyle and his longtime collaborator Noah Baslé (Ominous Media) as they find themselves caught up in a horror adventure filled with all the monsters and evil they previously thought to just be stories.

If that sounds enticing, you’re in luck, as the first three issues of the new series are currently available to read online for FREE and have already been a hit with die-hard horror readers and comic book fans alike. Whether it’s through the recreation of classic horror movie posters for each issue or the playful tribute and subversion of tropes, this is a must-read for fans of the genre; deaths are bloody, jokes are sharp, and horror easter eggs abound.

“These characters feel real and three dimensional. The art's stunning and the visual jokes keep coming, panel after panel. This isn't a book that's meant to be read just once, it demands - and deserves - your time and attention.” -Tony Farina of DC Comics News

Head on over to Ominous.Media to check out the series for yourself! And if you’ve got a question, critique, or steamy love letter for the creative team (or just want to say hi), they’d love to hear from you on their respective social medias or at officialominousmedia@gmail.com

In keeping with the tradition of past festivals, programmers are also planning special events for the online edition.

Each year, fans look forward to the annual festival artwork, and they won't be disappointed in 2020. Merchandise (including new t-shirts and posters) will be available for purchase, so collections can continue.

Currently, Telluride Horror Show is accepting short and feature film submissions from the following categories: Horror, Thriller, Suspense, Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Genre Comedy, and Genre Documentary. Filmmakers are encouraged to submit their films through FilmFreeway by September 20, 2020, the final deadline.

Please stay tuned for the festival's September announcement."
