Get BURIED ALIVE At The Plaza Theatre In Atlanta This Weekend
Boasting four Southeast premiers out of five features, and a bloody arsenal of terrifying short films, the fifth annual Buried Alive Film Festival breaks the crust and crawls forth to wreak havoc, terrify, and party on down, this November 12'th and 13'th in Atlanta, Georgia at the Plaza Theatre.Kicking off at 6:30 pm with the shorts film block "Welcome To Our Nightmare", then onto the world theatrical premiere of Terry Gilliam's new short The Legend Of Hallowdega, starring the always askew David Arquette, and then the Southeast theatrical premiere of She Wolf Rising, starring beloved scream queen Tiffany Shepis, as well as Tim Mandala and yet another legendary mistress of the macabre, Debbie Rochon. "Part balls-to-the-wall horror flick and a strange love story with off-kilter humor - all wrapped up in a supernatural thriller which keeps its audience on edge." Opening night ends with genre author and film journalist "Philip Nutman's Nightmares", which will be a collection of Nutman's favorite horror shorts. Nutman, known for his contribution "Wet Work" in the legendary zombie anthology Book Of The Dead (get this if you don't already have it...Amazon and Ebay are your friends) and as a writer at Fangoria magazine, Nutman's background makes him a knowledgeable and discerning programmer. Terror fans are sure to be in for a good time at the hands of this madman!
Saturday fires back up at a little after noon, with programming that includes Satan Hates You, by Glass Eye Pix stalwart James Felix McKenney and sponsored by Fangoria magazine (which is good again, read it), and another shorts film block centered around "The Good, The Weird, And The Ugly". That afternoon, at 4:30 pm, Buried Alive is happy to welcome live guests film makers Ashley Thorpe (The Screaming Skull, Scayrecrow, and The Hairy Hands) and Collective Studios' Ryan Lieske and Rick Reed (Clean Break) Later in the evening you can catch screenings of modern cult fave Robogeisha starring Twitch favorite Cay Azumi, and the documentary HG Lewis: The Godfather Of Gore, helmed by non other than cult legend Frank Henenlotter (Basket Case, Frankenhooker) and old school cult producer Jimmy Maslon. Following that stick around for a print of HG's Two Thousand Maniacs, then kill the rest of the night at The Highlander at the closing night party/art show.
Admission is only 7 bones (that's dollars), or 30 skulls (that's still dollars) for the entire two days! That's a deal good enough to make the dead get up and dance!
