The Shriekfest Film Festival, an international horror/sci-fi film and screenplay competition, has announced its 2018 finalists and is slated to screen the supernatural thriller Soul to Keep, which features groundbreaking deaf actress Sandra Mae Frank. For this reason, for the first time in Shriekfest’s history, the film will be shown with closed captions for the hearing impaired.
The film, written by David Allensworth and Eric Bram, and directed by Allensworth and Moniere, follows a pair of siblings and their friends as they are tormented by an ancient demon. Following the film, there will be a live Q&A session with the filmmakers.
In addition to Soul to Keep and nine other feature films, Shriekfest will also screen more than 30 outstanding and diverse international short films, covering just about every aspect of horror, sci-fi, and fantasy. See the schedule HERE.
The Shriekfest Film Festival runs October 4 – 7, 2018. The public is invited to an opening night party at Boardners/Club Sinister in Hollywood; all are also welcome to attend the screenings at the iconic Raleigh Studios on Melrose Ave. More information can be found on their wesbite.
