Death's Parade Film Fest Releases First Wave of Screenings: Press Release: "The Death’s Parade Film Festival (DPFF) has revealed its First Wave of film selections for its inaugural run on October 5th, 2019. The festival will feature short films from around the world with an emphasis on paranormal, psychological and body horror, found footage, experimental, killers, monsters, zombies, gore, and dark comedy. The First Wave exemplifies the spooky quality attendees can expect from the program in October.

The Towne 3 Cinemas, nestled in the heart of Silicon Valley, will play host to a list of veteran and up-and-coming local and international horror filmmakers, eager to share their grisly works of art with a fresh and frothing audience. The festival seeks to spotlight innovative storytelling with an eye on traditional means produced in a high-quality fashion.

Included in the first announcement is The Quiet Room Bears, written and directed by Lee Howard, the film offers us a glimpse into a sinister landscape packed with horribly disfigured teddy bears and a gruesome, matriarchal entity that racks up the body count. In the film Water Horse, done by veteran filmmaker couple Sarah Wisner and Sean Temple, the short weaves a chilling, fever dream tale involving the sudden appearance of an abandoned boat which turns the last day of summer into a mother’s nightmare. Filmmakers from both The Quiet Room Bears and Water Horse will be in attendance to present their respective films and participate in a Q&A session afterward.

DPFF is also proud to announce a special screening of 1987’s The Lost Boys, a Bay Area seminal favorite starring Kiefer Sutherland, Jason Patric, Dianne West, and Corey Feldman. Local film enthusiasts will know how The Lost Boys not only put Santa Cruz on the map but how it changed the way vampires are portrayed, thus paving the way for franchises like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the Twilight Saga."


First Look at "The Zombie" in The Horrific Evil Monsters: Press Release: "388 Studios and Macrocosm Productions releases exclusive images featuring actress Kaylee Williams as ‘the zombie’ from The Horrific Evil Monsters, an apocalyptic superhero style horror film featuring various horror icons such as a zombie, an alien, a werewolf, a grim reaper, and an unstoppable masked killer. Commissioned by a secret government agency code name T.H.E.M. (The Horrific Evil Monsters) and lead by a mysterious man named ‘Mick’ as he recruits some of the most hazardous horror and science fiction characters of all time to take on a biblical unrelenting force that brings the apocalypse with them.

Targeted for a 2020 release and directed by Adam R Steigert, the film is led by former WCW star Bishop Stevens, Award Winning actor and director Gregory Blair (Garden Party Massacre), Jason John Beebe (Ombis: Alien Invasion, Crossbreed) and scream queens Kaylee Williams (Mrs. Claus, The Lashman) and Jennie Russo (She Kills, FANG).

T.H.E.M.’s all start cast is accentuated by practical special effects, unique costuming and ingenuity designed to awe its audience. Phill Beith serves as special effects master, taught by the legendary Tom Savini School of Arts, who has trained the likes of The Walking Dead’s Greg Nicotero, and many others. The gags are well designed and executed without fail. His use of prosthetics and level of makeup effects work beautifully on screen and mixed with smart editing, makes for great movie magic!

This is what actress Kaylee Williams had to say about her character, “Anna is a young woman who finds herself thrown very suddenly into a confusing and unbelievable situation. There’s a lot of information for her to digest and it makes her wonder what her future will hold. Is her life over or is it just beginning?”

Keep your eyes peeled for surprises, shocks, and splatters over the coming months as principal photography wraps at the end of June!
