Shriekfest Film Festival to Screen Horror Thriller Sick for Toys
The annual Los Angeles competition will kick off with an opening night gala October 4
The Shriekfest Film Festival, an international horror/sci-fi film and screenplay competition, has announced its 2018 finalists and is slated to screen the horror-based feature film Sick for Toys.
The film, written by James Andrew Oster and Justin Xavier, and directed by David Del Rio, follows Roy (David Gunning), who accepts an invitation to have Christmas dinner with the beautiful and strangely alluring Emilia (Camille Montgomery). Once at dinner, Roy realizes that Emilia and her oddball brother Edward (Jon Paul Burkhart) are not what they seem.
More information can be found on the Shriekfest website.
In addition to Sick for Toys and nine other feature films, Shriekfest will also screen more than 30 outstanding and diverse international short films, covering just about every aspect of horror, sci-fi, and fantasy. See the schedule: https://www.shriekfest.com/schedule/los-angeles/.
The Shriekfest Film Festival runs October 4 – 7, 2018. The public is invited to an opening night party at Boardners/Club Sinister in Hollywood; all are also welcome to attend the screenings at the iconic Raleigh Studios on Melrose Ave.
Shriekfest, now in its 18th year, was created in July 2001 by Denise Gossett and has grown into the longest-running and one of the largest horror and sci-fi film festivals in the country. Shriekfest is bi-coastal for a second year as well, with Shriekfest Orlando kicking off on November 3.
Since its inception, Shriekfest has offered young and upcoming writers, actors and producers a chance to have their work screened and rated by peers.
