1

SAN DIEGO, CA – August 4, 2015:  The FANtastic Horror Film Festival chooses its FINAL FIVE Official Selections for their 2015 Season!

A VACATION TRIP at a TREACHEROUS HOTEL
The Film is about a family of 4 who were on a vacation trip until their car broke down. They ended up at a fancy Hotel that is own by a lady who runs it for free, but the lady is up to no good. What really happen was that the major character is present because she wants to be pampered, and the family doesn’t have enough money to pay for a fancy hotel.
The DOOMS CHAPEL HORROR
Kyle Cole returns home to the town of Kaler Mills. He hasn’t been back in 10 years since the people of the town turned on him believing that he was responsible for his brother’s death. His brother, Ryan Cole, was the beloved “fair haired boy” of Kaler Mills. Loved by all, hated by none. After his death in a tragic farm accident a video was released that made it seem that Kyle could have prevented his brother’s death. Now, armed with a documentary crew, Kyle has returned to face his demons. But he forgot about one of them…
BULLETS, FANGS, and DINNER at 8
Set in modern day suburbia, a subculture of wanna-be “Vampires” has taken its obsessions too far and turned itself into a violent cult. After the cult orchestrates a shooting during mass at a local church, seminary student Michael Collins (Garrett Schweighauser) organizes a group of Christian vigilantes — calling themselves “Vampire Hunters” — to avenge his people. Guerrilla warfare ensues.
Making matters more perilous for Michael is the fact that he is the only member of his church who knows the truth about its most well-respected priest: Pastor Steven Cooper (Matthew Rocca) is secretly the leader of the “vampire” cult, plotting the church’s demise from within.
Michael’s mission is to expose Steven for who he really is. But when Steven starts eliminating Michael’s teammates one by one, Michael must find help in an unlikely alley: a naive, kind-hearted civilian he saved from a vampire attack, Vivian Abbott (Eva Rocca).
While Steven is busy hosting a Christian dinner party to uphold his public image, Michael and Vivian go undercover at a seedy nightclub where the “vampire” cult congregates, seeking information to bring the group of murderers to justice.
But as the night goes on, Steven’s true dark nature begins to surface, making it increasingly difficult to maintain his facade in front of his dinner guests, while Michael begins questioning how long he can pretend to be a monster before becoming one himself.
HEAD
HEAD is the story of five twenty-somethings who go for a weekend camping trip in remote New England, only to discover that the land on which they’re staying was the site of a brutal mass murder years ago. When they meet a mysterious man during their stay, things quickly begin to unravel as they fear they’re becoming the next victims!
KILLERZ
Life is tough for a serial killer. At least it is for Zaphrone, a self-titled wannabe serial killer, who wants nothing more than to get his very first kill and become as feared as the notorious Broad Street Butcher.
However, once The Broad Street Butcher catches wind of Zaphrone’s clumsy antics, the red-masked buffoon has more to worry about than just evading the cops.

And it does it all with a wry sense of self-awareness that hasn’t been captured since The BAD and the BEAUTIFUL. The resulting mix of horror and hilarity makes for a thrilling rollercoaster ride of raging hostilities, blazing guns and…did we mention zombies?

KOKESHI CHOSEN AS OFFICIAL SELECTION FOR FHFF’s 2015 SEASON

11110232_774075922712794_4533719121777412005_n

The FANtastic Horror Film Festival chooses as its next Official Selection for their 2015 Season, Paolo Del Fiol’s Horror Short, – KOKESHI.

SYNOPSIS:  A woman (we never learn her name) was born with a disorder that renders her unable to feel pain. People tell her she is lucky, but she disagrees; from the time she is a child, she spends all her time attempting to make up for the loss of this sensation – by kidnapping and torturing young women. One day, she and her male apprentice choose the wrong woman – a Japanese art student who wills her soul into a kokeshi doll, then returns to take revenge for her death during a children’s game.

Trivia:   KOKESHI may be organized around a child’s game, and it may use dolls to tell the story – but it is a half-hour of non-stop, violent, gory torture. It is beautifully, almost lyrically, filmed, but it may not be for everyone. McCabria Darque, Horror House Party
