Brownrigg and released as The Forgotten. This 2015 sequel which Brownrigg tags a “supernatural thriller” is set forty years later when the only known survivor of a mass murder returns to the institution where the grisly killings took place, his presence triggering a series of increasingly disturbing events.

Dallas’ own Andrew Sensenig stars as Dr. William Matthews with Arianne Margot as Dr. Lucy Mills and Frank Mosley as Dr. Lance White. Megan Emerick, who co-wrote the screenplay with Brownrigg, plays a supporting role as Nurse Jennifer. Jim O’Rear and Scott Tepperman are orderlies Billy and Bishop, respectively. Willie H. Minor, Jr. is Sam Withers, the mysterious returning patient.
Daniel Redd, David Rennke, Andrew Sensenig, and Brownrigg partnered to create Don’t Look in the Basement 2, LLC under which the film was produced.

WHEN: Friday, May 6th at 7PM PST / 10PM EST
Your Host and Paranormal Investigator Britt Griffith.
Britt's lifelong hobbies are investigating claims of the paranormal, which led him to a friendship with Jason Hawes. In 2008, Jason reached out to Britt and asked if he would like to assist on an important case they had coming up. Britt said yes and now finds himself working all over the world in front of the camera investigating the paranormal. Britt makes appearances at multiple guest events all over the country, where he lectures and leads paranormal investigations. He has also worked on Ghost Hunters, the Food Network Challenge, Run This Town, RWG, and can be seen in Two De Force, Chillerama, and Azinda.
Mystic Maria Luisa
There have been many popular TV shows and films about psychics, mediums, clairvoyants and people with similar gifts. On television there were the fictional “The Ghost Whisperer” and “Medium,” as well as other programs hosted by real life “seers” (someone who predicts things that will happen in the future), such as Edward in “Crossing Over” and James Van Praagh (who coexecutive produced “The Ghost Whisperer”) in short-lived show of his own, “Beyond with James Van Praagh”. Maria Luisa Mispireta is one of the most important “seers” from Latin America who moved from her native Peru to Los Angeles when she was 15 years old. In her professional practice, she has an array of clients, from local residents to celebrities and law enforcement.
The Ancestral Anasazi Tribe
The Anasazi are an ancient people that lived thousands of years ago in the desert canyons in the southwest of North America. According to believers, the Anasazi either had seen aliens, were abducted by them or were aliens themselves. According to their prophecy, the Blue Star Kachina will be visible to all, and the Day of Purification will be realized. It is said that if they are unable to find uncorrupted men and women, that the earth will be completely destroyed and none will be spared. However, if they are successful in bringing the symbols and finding those who still follow the true Hopi way of life, the world will be created anew and all the faithful will be saved from destruction. Through the Facebook LIVE event, Maria Luisa and Britt Griffith will be trying to make contact with their spirits.

Crypt TV and Movie Pilot's One Sentence Scare Competition: Press Release: "LOS ANGELES, Calif. (May 4, 2016) – Movie Pilot and Crypt TV today announced a collaboration to find the next great “One Sentence Scare” via a fan competition hosted on Moviepilot.com. The social-savvy digital entertainment platforms will invite fans across the globe to submit their best “One Sentence Scare,” with the winning submission produced by Eli Roth’s Crypt TV. The resulting video will be shared both on Crypt TV’s Facebook channel and Movie Pilot’s Horror Channel on Facebook, a network of more than 6 million collective fans.
Fans who submit their “One Sentence Scare” horror concept on Movie Pilot will have the chance to witness their vision come to life first-hand – with Movie Pilot and Crypt TV inviting the winner to the set for the production of the short. Five contest finalists will be selected by Crypt TV, Roth and Movie Pilot, before a final winner is chosen on Friday the 13th of May.
“I love Movie Pilot, they've been amazing supporters of genre cinema and have a fantastic audience,” said Eli Roth, co-founder of Crypt TV. “We're excited to join forces to create something exciting with ideas entirely generated by their audience. It's gonna be really cool.”
Co-founded by CEO Jack Davis and Roth, Crypt TV is a digital brand that produces dark and edgy content. They work with young filmmakers to create shorts, shows, and original series. The ultimate goal of Crypt TV is fundamentally changing the way fans consume and celebrate genre content -- in short form, on mobile, every day. Since their launch one year ago, they have produced and released hundreds of genre shorts across social and built a substantial Facebook following, passing 1.1 million fans last month. That social-first, fan-centric approach brought Crypt TV and Movie Pilot together for this collaborative competition.
“At Movie Pilot, we're focused on activating and empowering creative fan voices, and Crypt TV shares that passion,” said Jon Handschin, co-founder, and CCO of Movie Pilot. “Jack and Eli know the fans often have the best stories to tell, and we’re excited to tap an enormous horror community on Movie Pilot to create something really special here.”
Movie Pilot averages about 20 million unique monthly visitors and has become one of the top Facebook native video publishers, topping more than 80 million views in April. As a moderated open-posting platform offering fans a voice and mass distribution, Movie Pilot has also become a leader in the influencer marketing space, partnering with top movie studios to connect passionate fans with the content they love most.
“Movie Pilot does such an excellent job giving autonomy to the fans, especially their passionate community of horror fans,” said Jack Davis, CEO, and co-founder of Crypt TV. “We've seen how well Movie Pilot fans have reacted to walking the red carpet at a premiere or interviewing talent from horror movies. Now we are really excited to see fans’ one sentence scare creativity and turn them into the original short scares Crypt TV has become known for.”
This marks the first official contest collaboration between the two new media companies. By combining creative and distribution forces, Movie Pilot, and Crypt TV hope to usher in a more fan-centric approach to horror content, inviting storytellers across the globe to infuse the genre with new voices.
