Hunter Release Details and Trailer: "Random Media’s supernatural-horror feature film ‘HUNTER’, starring Nick Searcy (The Shape of Water), Jason Kellerman (Shiva Baby), Rachel Cerda (Chicago Fire) and Ryan Heindl (Chicago P.D.) will [be] released on-demand and on all digital platforms on February 12.
Directed by David Tarleton, and written by Jason Kellerman, ‘HUNTER’, is the story of Hunter (Jason Kellerman), who, after the deaths of his mother and sister, suddenly finds himself relegated to a life of paranoia and loneliness on the icy winter streets of Chicago. Dreaming of the life he's lost, he's increasingly haunted by horrifying memories and visions of the shadowy figures (Nick Searcy) that took so much from him.
He takes refuge in a local homeless shelter and is enrolled in a program that rehabilitates the homeless through talk therapy. Running the program, Danielle (Rachel Cerda) attempts to help him grapple with his history and explain the personal demons which continue to terrify him. After another homeless friend of Hunter's goes missing, seemingly at the hands of those shadowy figures, Hunter's fears become suddenly much more immediate. As he grows increasingly bold in his search for answers, and his newfound resolve brings him closer and closer to the truth, the deadly figures he's pursuing begin to mount their forces against him. As his personal demons seek to exploit his weaknesses to threaten all he holds dear, with the lives of those he loves once again at stake, he must find the courage to rise above the victim and become the Hunter."

Watch a New Terror in the Skies Trailer: "Small Town Monsters has released the first trailer for Terror in the Skies and outlined their plans for 2019. Director Seth Breedlove explores hundreds of years of terrifying reports of encounters with massive, winged creatures around the land of Lincoln. From Alton's man-eating Piasa Bird legends to recent sightings in Chicago of a creature said to resemble Point Pleasant, West Virginia's infamous Mothman, Terror in the Skies unlocks a centuries-old mystery.
The first trailer for Terror in the Skies promises to open viewers' minds to the possibility that such a thing could exist by way of believable witnesses and fascinating photographic, video and audio evidence. Small Town Monsters made waves in 2017 with their documentary The Mothman of Point Pleasant, which Terror in the Skies acts as a "spiritual sequel" to and one that will be concluded in 2020 by the final film in their Mothman trilogy, The Mothman Legacy.
Small Town Monsters is funding Terror in the Skies, as well as a second film (MOMO: The Missouri Monster) through a Kickstarter campaign launching this week and running through March 9th. The campaign offers backers the opportunity to have their names added to the credits of the films, or have the chance to appear on-camera, alongside posters, apparel, DVD copies of the films and more.
