Stealth Media is at the American Film Market with a handful of horror titles and sales art accompanying them. Jeremy Berg’s art for The Invoking clearly rips off James Wan’s The Conjuring poster done by New Line, which is funny because both pieces of art are kinda sucky. Invoking stars Brandon Anthony, Carson Holden, and D’Angelo Midili. “After inheriting a house from a family that she never knew, Sam and three friends take a road trip to inspect the remote property. Soon after Sam arrives old memories come seeping back, while jealousy and unspoken tension between the friends is forced to the surface. Sam soon finds herself unable to tell the difference between reality and horrible visions of brutality she can’t escape, and while her world crumbles around her, she discovers that the current horrors may be tied directly to her past.”
Then there’s the awfully titled Panzer Chocolate, which teases that the darkest Nazi secret is about to be revealed. “In the dark forests of the Pyrenees, an Archaeology PhD student and three friends in search for pieces of art stolen during WWII discover a Nazi bunker called ‘Valhalla’. They soon realize that the place is guarded by a hideous beast named Das Kommandant Frank, and find themselves running for their lives.” Melina Matthews (Mama, Savage Grace), Geraldine Chaplin (Doctor Zhivago, Talk to Her, The Impossible) , Ariadna Cabrol (Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, Perfume: The Story of a Murderer), Tony Corvillo (Sleep Tight), Mark Schardan (North Face), Josep Seguí (Piantball), Luka Peros (The Hunting Party, No One’s Son), Richard Felix (Perfume: The Story of a Murderer, Fragile) all star in the horror directed by Robert Figueras (Citizen Welles).
Then there’s Bigfoot Wars from Origin Releasing, which also shared the below sales trailer. The film is the Boggy Wars prequel and is based on the bestselling book series by Eric S. Brown. This prequel is an introduction to the classic man versus mythical beast series set in the small town of Boggy Creek. Starring C. Thomas Howell (Red Dawn, E.T.) and Judd Nelson (The Breakfast Club), this horror/thriller version of the classic Bigfoot tale “follows a group of teens that are thrust into a nightmare beyond their wildest imaginations when the creatures begin to try and mate with the girls and kill off the guys – and no one believes them, except for Zeke Jesterson (Howell) and Sheriff Jim Taylor (Holt Boggs, Hostage), whose daughter has been kidnapped by the savage beasts. From the horrifying opening scene to the intense conclusion, no one is safe from Bigfoot.”
Lastly, Origin also has art for Dead Sea, which was directed by Brandon Slagle, and stars Britt Griffith, Alexis Iacono, and Donnie Darko‘s James Duval. In the film, “A Marine Biologist is thrust into the violent paranoia surrounding a town preparing for the return of a legendary serpentine creature.”
