Pirates of the Great Salt Lake

Posted in ,

Directed by E.R. Nelson. Written by E.R. Nelson & Nathan Phillips.

E.R. Nelson makes an unforgettable directorial debut with Pirates of the Great Salt Lake.

Kirk Redgrave (Kirby Heyborne) and Flint Weaver (Trenton James), outcasts and loners in their landlocked home, have dreams to become the best pirates the world has ever seen. They take the pirate code to heart and set out for a life of pillaging and plunder. Still, pirate life isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, until they stumble across a long lost treasure map that has the power to not only fulfill their wildest pirate dreams, but curse them as well.

Now all they have to do is find the treasure, break the curse, get the girl, defeat the evil pawn shop owner (Larry Bagby), and show themselves to be true pirates. Pirates of the Great Salt Lake is a tongue-in-cheek, camp comedy/fantasy that vividly captures the dreams of youth and  explores the human plight of acceptance.

Saturday, 7:00 PM.  Q&A with director E.R. Nelson after the screening.

The Signal

Posted in ,

Written and Directed by David Bruckner, Dan Bush, Jacob Gentry.

It’s New Year’s Eve in the city of Terminus and chaos is this year’s resolution. All forms of communication have been jammed by an enigmatic transmission that preys on fear and desire driving everyone in the city to murder and madness. In a place once marked by conformity but now sent into complete anarchy, the rebellious Ben must save the woman he loves from the bedlam in the streets as well as her crazed sadistic husband. But the only way he can tell who to trust or who has given in to violence is by uncovering the true nature of The Signal.

Told in three parts from three unique perspectives by three directors, The Signal is a sci-fi/horror/thriller that imagines a world where everyday anxieties become the catalyst for inhuman terror. The Signal is a horrific journey towards discovering that the most brutal monster might actually be within all of us.

Saturday at 4:00 PM.  Q&A with 10 members of the cast and crew following the screening.

Vampira: The Movie

Posted in ,

Directed by Kevin Sean Michaels.

From Pin-up to TV Star to B-Movie icon
Vampira: The Movie documents the life and career of Maila “Vampira” Nurmi, the “glamour ghoul” and horror movie hostess. Impossible to forget, Vampira was famous for her 17-inch waist (still a Guinness records), tight black dress, and long black hair, all patterned after Morticia from The Addams Family.

Her cult status was secured with her appearance in Ed Wood’s 1956 low-budget Plan 9 From Outer Space.

The film features interviews with Nurmi, Sid Haig, Julie Strain, Kevin Eastman, Forrest J. Ackerman, Debbie Rochon, Troma’s Lloyd Kaufman, Bill Moseley, Cassandra “Elvira” Peterson, Jerry Only of The Misfits, and many horror hosts.

And if all that doesn’t summon every genre movie fan alive, the film’s score was written and performed by Ari Lehman, the first Jason of Friday The 13th.

Friday late night at 1:00 AM.
