Convergence: Press Release: "A detective on the trail of a terrorist finds himself in a supernaturally charged trap where all the rules of police work go out the window in director Drew Hall's eerily atmospheric and provocative CONVERGENCE. The film arrives in select theaters on February 5th, 2016, and on Digital Download, Blu-ray, and DVD on February 9th, 2016.

Detective Ben Walls (Clayne Crawford, Rectify, A Walk to Remember)  lives a quiet life with his wife and newborn daughter. But he's called into action after an explosion at a local women's health clinic - and explosion that may be the work of a terrorist bomber Ben has been tracking. While investigating the scene, another shocking event lands Ben himself in the hospital. When he awakens he is surprisingly uninjured and ready to go back into the field. But at the behest of his captain (Mykelti Williamson, Forrest Gump, Con Air) and the hospital's few but eerily incongruous patients and staff, Ben is forced to remain inside the building.

As Ben navigates the hospital's alarmingly empty hallways, he soon finds himself hunted by a self-proclaimed avenging angel (Ethan Embry, Eagle Eye, Vacancy), who may be the terrorist he has been looking for and haunted by apparitions whose deadly motives remain a mystery. As Ben's sense of reality begins to spiral out of control and the demons that surround him close in, he must find a way to both stop the supernatural forces that want him dead and catch the bomber before he strikes again.

A modern-day myth about redemption that's equal parts crime thriller, supernatural horror, and action spectacle, CONVERGENCE will keep you guessing at every turn of its twisting plot right up until the last shocking frame.

Also starring in this gripping and unsettling film are Chelsea Bruland (Left Behind), Gary Grubbs (JFK), Laura Cayouette (Django Unchained) and Catalina Soto-Aguilar (Sons of Liberty).

OneFilmFan.com said CONVERGENCE "successfully transcends its genre with potent thematic elements about faith, forgiveness, and grace and can be a sobering reminder about our own choices and humanness." Jamie Hall of Fraking Films called it "brilliantly directed, terrifically acted."

Director's Cut: "The ultimate ‘meta movie’, DIRECTOR’S CUT is an insane, cinematic sleight of hand trick that reflects on itself, much like the stage persona of its co-star and creator, world famous illusionist Penn Jillette. Here, teamed with acclaimed Director Adam Rifkin, Jillette conjures a mind-bending, genre-defying movie-within-a-movie mash-up that’s part narrative thriller, part docu-mental-case. Starring Missi Pyle, DIRECTOR’S CUT is about a cineaste stalker who kidnaps his favorite actress and forces her to star in his amateur movie. The madness that unspools behind the scenes will leave you reeling.

Directed by: Adam Rifkin
Starring: Missi Pyle, Penn Jillette, Harry Hamlin, Hayes MacArthur, featuring Kin Shaye, Teller, Gilbert Gottfried, and Nestor Carbonell.
Written by: Penn Jillette
Running Time: 82 minutes
MPAA Rating: Not yet rated

The film will be making its world premiere on Friday, January 22nd, 2016, in Park City, UT as a Slamdance Film Festival Special Screening at this year’s Opening Night Film."

    About the Author - Tamika Jones

    Tamika hails from North Beach, Maryland, a tiny town inches from the Chesapeake Bay.She knew she wanted to be an actor after reciting a soliloquy by Sojourner Truth in front of her entire fifth grade class. Since then, she's appeared in over 20 film and television projects. In addition to acting, Tamika is the Indie Spotlight manager for Daily Dead, where she brings readers news on independent horror projects every weekend.

    The first horror film Tamika watched was Child's Play. Being eight years old at the time, she remembers being so scared when Chucky came to life that she projectile vomited. It's tough for her to choose only one movie as her favorite horror film, so she picked two: Nosferatu and The Stepford Wives (1975).
