Pasadena, California-based production company Conley Entertainment Group recently announced the World Premiere of their feature independent horror/thriller The Basement, to be held at the venerable Shriekfest Film Festival on Saturday, October 7th at 8:15PM at Raleigh Studios (5300 Melrose Avenue), in Hollywood, CA.
Starring Mischa Barton (The Sixth Sense), Jackson Davis (Lonelygirl15), Cayleb Long, Tracie Thoms (Death Proof), Bailey Anne Borders (The Fifth Wave) and Sarah Nicklin, the plot of The Basement, which Sam Santiago of TrulyDisturbing.com likens to a cross between The Silence of the Lambs and Split:
“A L.A. serial killer known as The Gemini (Davis), who tortures and ultimately murders his victims in the dungeon-like basement of his San Fernando Valley home. By the time the movie opens, Gemini has already claimed seven victims, all of whom he has horrifyingly maimed and decapitated with a blowtorch, but Craig Owen (Long), the famed musician who Gemini has chosen for his eighth victim, and Craigs beautiful wife Kelly (Barton) prove every bit the killers equal in the art of psychological warfare, giving rise to one of the more diabolical plot twists in recent memory.”
Here’s the trailer debut:
