Road Head Trailer and Premiere Details: "David Del Rio‘s indie horror Road Head, is receiving its world premiere at the 2020 Cinequest Film & Creativity Festival.
Named #1 film festival by USA Today's readers, Cinequest announced its international lineup of dramatic and documentary competition films for the next edition of the popular California winter event, taking place March 3-15, 2020 in San Jose and Redwood City, CA.
More than 105,000 attendees will experience the work of internationally renowned and emerging artists and technologists this year at Cinequest Film & VR Festival. Representing a spectrum of genres, genders, ethnicities, orientations, and viewpoints, this year's lineup is not to be missed - including the horror stoner comedy, Road Head from the producers of the acclaimed Sick For Toys.
Road Head’s world premiere will take place on March 7th, with screenings to follow on March 8th, 13th, and the 15th.
A Nine Ten Films and Delco-Cut co-production, Road Head tells the story of three friends who take a road trip to the Mojave-desert where their complicated relationships are pushed to their breaking point as the group encounters a reclusive, murderous cult.
Directed by David Del Rio, the film stars Clayton Farris, Damian Joseph Quinn, Adam Nemet and Elizabeth Grullon (known for playing the villain in the new Star Wars Video game).
“I’m honored to be included in such a highly respected film festival that will help bring widespread exposure to our film, and leave our audience with an amazing experience,” says David Gunning, co-producer of Road Head.
"I am beyond thrilled to showcase our film at Cinequest! The combination of creativity and innovation makes for an exciting event; experiencing new technologies that go beyond film. I hope the audience is surprised by Road Head! Not in what the film reveals as the “twist;" but working with audience expectations of what this film is based on, the ridiculousness of the concept, starting with even the playful title “Road Head”. I hope the audience feels surprised by how much more they will see in the film,” comments filmmaker David Del Rio.
“Cinequest has been on our radar since our first short film in 2012. We are thrilled to debut our feature film ROAD HEAD at Cinequest 2020; and we hope audiences have a blast watching this ridiculous, poignant and genre-bending film!” adds co-producer Jon Paul Burkhart.
The Cinequest Film Festival is an annual independent film festival held each March in San Jose, California and Redwood City, California. The international festival combines the cinematic arts with Silicon Valley’s innovation. In 2019, the festival was renamed the Cinequest Film & Creativity Festival in recognition of the many creative experiences presented each year including film, virtual and augmented realities, comedy, television, fashion, art and design, dance, and more."

All events start at 1.00 pm prompt!
TOBE HOOPER – SUNDAY 9/2/20
“No matter where you’re going it’s the wrong place.” – Tobe Hooper.
TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE
Described as “an exercise in the pornography of terror” by James Ferman, former head of the BBFC, it was recently added to the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in 1981.
“They’re heeeeerrrre!” Spielberg tries his hand at horror but is smart enough to enlist Hooper to direct.
TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 2
Leatherface is back. And this time he’s got Dennis Hopper to answer to.
SALEM’S LOT (180 mins)
Nosferatu in Small Town America, in Hooper’s classic adaptation of Stephen King’s novel.
DAVID CRONENBERG - SUNDAY 8/3/20
“Everybody’s a mad scientist, and life is their lab. We’re all trying to experiment to find a way to live, to solve problems, to fend off madness and chaos.” – David Cronenberg.
In the wake of the Soska Twins’ recent remake, a chance to revisit the stark, bleak original; the film in which Marilyn Chambers truly is insatiable.
“Long live the new flesh!” Remember the whole “video nasties” hysteria of the 1980s? Fear of what exposure to such things might be doing to the young? It could have been a lot worse.
“There was an old lady who swallowed a fly. I don’t know why. Perhaps she’ll die…” One of the genre’s greatest ever love stories. Yes, seriously.
Cronenberg’s cinematic reimagining of J.G Ballard’s novel was described as “beyond the bounds of depravity” by critic Alexander Walker. The perfect combination of filmmaker and source material, in other words.
JOHN CARPENTER - SATURDAY 9/5/20
“In France, I’m an auteur, in Germany a filmmaker, in England a genre film director, in the USA a bum!” – John Carpenter.
PRINCE OF DARKNESS
Carpenter’s homage to Nigel Kneale’s Quatermass series. With added satanism. And Alice Cooper.
BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA
Every 70s martial arts movie you ever loved, put into a blender and then thrown at Kurt Russell. Who comes out fighting.
Rowdy Roddy Piper is all out of chewing gum. Those alien invaders had better watch out. The perfect combination of political satire and all-in wrestling.
IN THE MOUTH OF MADNESS
“God’s not supposed to be a hack horror writer.” But let’s face it, that would actually explain a lot…
WES CRAVEN - SUNDAY 5/7/20
“Wes Craven reinvented horror at least four times. Most directors don’t even manage it once.” – Kim Newman.
THE HILLS HAVE EYES
Family values in conflict; a stark and brutal confrontation between civilization and savagery in which the lines between the two become increasingly blurred.
What happens when the killers don’t play by The Rules anymore?
THE PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS
Part fairy tale, part social satire, Craven tackles the subjects of homelessness and urban gentrification in typically full-on fashion.
A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET
One, two, Freddy’s coming for you……
And right now, Grimmfest is hosting a social media competition to win an amazing Grimmfest horror movie goodie bag and 2 x passes for our first event, TOBE HOOPER ALL -DAYER. Check out our Grimmfest FB page and website for more info.
