The Music Box Theatre is once again bringing the Cinepocalypse Film Festival to Chicago from June 21 – 28th where Bloody Disgusting is a premier sponsor. Yesterday, we told you about Empathy, Inc., an exciting new indie making its World Premiere at the event. Now, we have first details on Kurt Knight‘s The Appearance, which will have its World Premiere on Wednesday, June 27th (get tickets).
In the film likened to “Game of Thrones”, “Mateho (Jake Stormoen), an officer of the Inquisition and rational man of science, visits a remote monastery to investigate a bizarre murder of a monk. And you guessed it: something evil is afoot. But is the terror man-made or the result of witchcraft?”
You’ll have a gnarly time finding out in this incredibly eerie, evocative medieval thriller, explains the festival’s description. Speaking of “Game of Thrones“, fans should keep an eye out for Kristian Nairn (aka Hodor), who pops up as the Inquisitor’s loyal sidekick, Johnny.
The Appearance is the follow-up work from the director of the zombie-infused family drama We All Fall Down.
