Just announced tonight is the premiere for Cube: Zero, which I’m told makes up for the disappointing ‘Cube 2: Hypercube’ (review). Anyone who lives in the LA area can check out the film on the opening night to Screamfest on October 15th. Mr. Disgusting and friends will be in attendance and drinking heavily at the after party with anyone who wishes to attend! Read on for the press release and to see how you can get tickets…
LION’S GATE’S NEW FILM CUBE ZERO
AT OPENING NIGHT OF FESTIVAL OCTOBER 15TH
DIRECTOR ERNIE BARBARASH AND THE FILM’S ENSEMBLE CAST TO PARTICIPATE IN Q&A
AFTER-PARTY AT CAFÉ TU TU TANGO IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING
Los Angeles, September 23rd, 2004 – Rachel Belofsky, Founder of the Screamfest Horror Film Festival announced today that writer and director Ernie Barbarash’s new film Cube Zero will premiere at the 4th annual Festival on Friday, October 15th at the Loews Universal Studios at Universal Citywalk.
In the latest chapter to one of the most successful sci-fi thrillers of the last decade, a new group of unwilling participants frantically moves through an ominous construct of cube-shaped rooms. While some rooms provide momentary solace, others offer hideously inventive and painful death. On the outside, a young man charged with watching over the cube is beginning to understand that there’s more going on than he’s been told. In order for all of them to survive, they are going to have to trust each other in navigating this complex killing machine.
Festival founder, Rachel Belofsky, said: “We are thrilled that ScreamFest has grown so quickly and it is a tribute to this genre that Hollywood has taken notice of its widespread audience. Our new partner, producer and Academy Award(r) winning creature creator Stan Winston has joined us this year as we provide a forum for up and coming writers and directors to present their work while interacting with masters of the genre. Fans and filmmakers alike come together to celebrate the best horror films in the world.”
Belofsky noted that the majority of last year’s films now have distribution with companies that champion independent filmmakers such as Lions Gate and Blockbuster. The festival prides itself on selecting quality films from emerging producers and directors.
