K-11 Escapes onto Blu-ray and DVD

Posted by Uncle Creepy on March 27, 2013

K-11 Escapes onto Blu-ray and DVDJules Stewart's lunacy in prison opus K-11 is getting set to make its DVD and Blu-ray debut courtesy of Breaking Glass Films, and we have all the details you need on whether or not to sentence your cash flow to a worthy purchase!

From the Press Release
Breaking Glass Pictures and Libertine Films are proud to announce the upcoming April 23 Blu-ray (SRP $29.99) and DVD (SRP $24.99) release of Jules Stewart’s directorial debut, K-11, a riveting drama that tells the story of a man’s plight after winding up in K-11, the Los Angeles County Jail’s transgender inmate unit. K-11 is currently screening at select theaters in fifteen cities around the country and is available nationwide on Video On Demand.

K-11 stars Goran Visnjic (ABC-TV’s new hit series “Red Widow”, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, “ER”) as Raymond Saxx, a businessman whose drug use leads him to incarceration in the section of the Los Angeles County Jail reserved for LGBT inmates and firmly under the heel of Mousey (Mexican superstar Kate Del Castillo, Under the Same Moon, “La Reina del Sur”, “Weeds”), a malicious transgendered inmate. Saxx has no idea how he got there — all he knows is he needs to get the hell out... alive and intact. Aggressive cellmates, corrupt officials, and his own issues are just a few challenges he faces while he pieces together a way out of this entirely new kind of rabbit hole.

K-11 also stars DB Sweeney (Taken 2), Jason Mewes (Jay & Silent Bob, Clerks), Portia Doubleday (Kimberly Peirce’s Carrie, Youth in Revolt, Almost Kings), and Tommy “Tiny” Lister (The Fifth Element, Jackie Brown). Jules' son, Cameron Stewart, makes his film debut in K-11 as Sledgehammer while daughter Kristen (The Twilight Saga, On the Road) makes a special contribution.

The Blu-ray and DVD will come complete with a commentary by Jules Stewart and producer Tom Wright, deleted scenes, interviews with key cast and crew, a behind-the-scenes featurette, the “My Liberty” music video by cast member Billy Morrison, and a photo gallery.

Indie Horror Month Exclusive: Jules Stewart Discusses Her Directorial Debut K-11 and More

Posted by thehorrorchick on March 7, 2013

Indie Horror Month Exclusive: Jules Stewart Discusses Her Directorial Debut K-11 and MoreThis Friday, Jules Stewart's edgy and challenging directorial debut K-11 arrives in limited theaters courtesy of Breaking Glass Pictures. Featuring an eclectic cast of characters, the indie prison-centric thriller is a bold introduction from the seasoned script supervisor.

Through the years Stewart has overseen over 80 projects throughout her 30+ years in Hollywood.

Considering that K-11 is by far one of the most blisteringly raw debuts we've seen in some time, we knew we'd have a ton of questions for Stewart when we recently caught up with her on the phone. During our interview, we spoke to Stewart about working outside 'the system,' her thoughts on what attracted her to co-writer Jared Kurt's original story that's based on a real portion of the LA County Jail system, the challenges of managing 46 distinct characters and personalities inside one location while shooting K-11 and much more.

Check out the highlights from our exclusive interview with Stewart in honor of DC's Indie Horror Month and look for K-11 in limited theaters this weekend!

Dread Central: First of all, congratulations on a remarkable first film- you really took some chances with K-11.

Jules Stewart: Thank you so much. I think we ALL took some chances in this movie.

Dread Central: Was that part of the appeal then to make this your first movie, to do something completely out of the box and unexpected?

Jules Stewart: Oh it was absolutely intentional. I think it's boring to just make the same movie you see everyone else making. Where's the fun in that? That's not storytelling at all, to me at least. And at the end of the day, I just love a great story and think that when you're trying to make a great story it has to have a couple of different elements which is what K-11 has for sure.

So I was on this television pilot and one of the guys that was working on the pilot with- Jared- came to me and said, “I have this idea for a script and I was hoping you'd write it with me.” So after he told me about K-11, I did some of my own research and found out what it was and just thought that environment was so unique and original and could really lend itself to some great conflict between all the residents inside those walls.

Dread Central: So what kind of things did you discover about this place during your research then?

Jules Stewart: Well, K-11 is a specific dorm in Los Angeles Men’s County Jail that houses the gay and transgender inmates and t only exists in LA; nowhere else. And it’s pretty much the only place in the jail system where race is not an issue at all because everybody in there is either gay or transgender so they have more of a commonality existing between them than a division, which is something that's a huge issue in normal jail populations.

It’s a part of the jail system that not too many people know even exists so that fact right there was fascinating to me. How could this have been here since the 1950's and nobody know about it for all this time? Why hadn't anyone told this story before? That's what I saw in my research process, a way to tell a really different story so I wouldn't be making the typical jail movie you always see or come to expect.

Dread Central: Considering this is your first time working as a director, was it daunting at all managing such a large cast? Each of them also have their own little 'moments' throughout K-11- was that difficult to manage as well while still keeping this story moving forward?

Jules Stewart: We had 46 people in that dorm for K-11 and the thing about that is, because of the story we were telling, we always had to have 46 people in that room so in some ways that was difficult to manage just because you're working with so many different schedules. That was challenging in its own way. But I also think because we had to keep it mostly contained within that main dorm room, that also lent itself to building this sense of claustrophobia as Raymond (Goran Visnjic) is locked in there longer and longer so that really worked in our favor.

At the same time though, because you are tied to essentially one location, you also run the risk of things becoming stale so that was another challenge, keeping things moving and keeping things interesting. Thankfully we had a wonderful cast that really keeps that momentum going.

Dread Central: Did making K-11 independently present a whole different set of challenges that maybe you hadn't considered before shooting at all?

Jules Stewart: In some ways it did. In some ways it made me a stronger filmmaker I think too because we only had 23 days to shoot K-11. It was low budget and it was a first-time director so all of those things wrapped into one production can be trouble if you're not prepared. But that's just it-you just have to make it work. That's part of the allure; beating the odds. Not everyone gets 10 million dollars and 50 days to make a movie so you just play the hand you're dealt and make sure you have the right people to support you and to bring the story to life.

I think one of the most definitive things I can say about K-11 is that every single person brought their own kind of enthusiasm to the movie and I think that shows in the final product. Every single actor enjoyed their role and contributed far more than I could ever have hoped for- they all had ideas and I just let them go on their instincts. They knew those characters better than I did. Every character has a lot of different sides to them- emotional sides- and they just jumped right into it. They trusted me and they trusted the script which made for an amazing collaborative experience for all of us.

Dread Central: Speaking of trust- you have some pretty intense and violent scenes between Butterfly (Portia Doubleday) and Detroit (Tiny Lister) and even though you play a lot of it off-screen, they're still pretty tough to get through. Did you find that playing it that way made it more disturbing for you as well?

Jules Stewart: It was intentional because I felt like it was almost more horrific to cut away to these people just sitting there listening to it happen and reacting almost by not reacting- you know what I mean? And shooting the scenes was very difficult I think for all of us; we made sure to have a closed set though and one of the things that made it a little easier was that Tiny is such a wonderful and gentle guy that in between takes he'd make sure there laughter to bring us all back. We never pretended it was real, we never did any of those things but even so, we still needed that levity from time to time and I think because Tiny approached it like that, it made Portia step it up in her own right because she felt safe.

Dread Central: You previously worked on a lot of great projects like Crank: High Voltage, XXX and Mortal Kombat- why did the timing feel right to step out on your own and direct a feature?

Jules Stewart: It really comes down to the fact that I love telling stories and one of the best ways to do that is through filmmaking. And I've had great teachers throughout my career; I've worked with some of the finest directors, like David Lynch, where I've learned a lifetime worth of knowledge. At the same time, I've also worked with some guys who didn't know anything but those are equally valuable experiences to have because it makes you become that much more resourceful when you're on set. You don’t have time to think, you just have to find solutions to keep things running smoothly. But I think at some point in your career, you just want to tell your own stories and I was in a position where I had a great script and financing in place so I decided to take a chance.

Dread Central: Now that you've gotten a taste, are you planning on directing again soon?

Jules Stewart: Definitely- I’m jumping right into a supernatural thriller- more of a ghost story really- about a temple that is unearthed in the desert of China and deconstructed and reconstructed in the United States along with its permanent residents that have been inside since 2010 B.C. It’s pretty interesting because we're going to get to play around in the world of ancient China so it's almost like bringing a Chinese legend to life.

Dread Central: Do you want to stay independent too? It seems like a filmmaking culture that really suits your type of storytelling?

Jules Stewart: I love the indie world- I think it's the only place left to tell interesting stories and where you can make the movie that you really want to make without any kind of interference. I think if I had to make K-11 through a studio, this would have been a very, very different movie and I don't know if I would have done it then. The indie world is really the only place left in Hollywood where people are still daring to be different and that's where I belong.

CineMayhem Film Festival Wrap-Up and Photo Gallery

Posted by Uncle Creepy on March 5, 2013

Heather Wixson. Honestly, this "horror chick" is a bit of an enigma. Where she finds the time to get the amount of things done that she does is beyond me, but I can tell you that we are beyond thrilled to have her on our team and love her more than words can fully illustrate.

Indie films have always been a passion of hers, and as a result several years ago she came to me with an idea to make the month of March officially Indie Horror Month. Over the years the feature has grown immensely, and for 2013 it came out guns blazing with the first ever CineMayhem Film Festival, which took place March 2nd and 3rd at the Muvico Thousand Oaks located at 166 West Hillcrest Drive, Thousand Oaks, CA.

To say we were proud to be a part of something like this is an understatement. With the festival Heather was able to offer prime theatrical time and space to filmmakers who normally wouldn't have the resources to get their films shown on the big screen. Indie films are our genre's life's blood because you just never know where the next master of horror is going to come from. The main difference between indie films and studio-driven fare is that we've seen time and time again that a filmmaker with some imagination and inspiration can easily trump a half-baked project with a bloated budget. Every second and every dime counts when it comes to independent projects, and the CineMayhem line-up of films, both short and feature length, underscored this fact in the most sterling way imaginable.

Being a sponsor of the event, it would not be appropriate for us to judge it on its merits, so for that we suggest you check out Brian Collins' report here and also dig on some words from Heather herself here.

At this time we'd like to thank all of our sponsors who helped to make the first CineMayhem Film Festival the success that it was. Big heartfelt thanks go out to Muvico Theaters, Sideshow Collectibles, Magnet Releasing, Scream Factory, Breaking Glass Pictures, and most of all... you guys. Even if you couldn't make it to the event, it's great to know that indie horror occupies such a warm and integral part of your hearts.

To keep up with all the CineMayhem to come, fans can follow CineMayhem on Twitter and give them a "Like" on the official CineMayhem Facebook page.

Here's to a bigger and better show next year! Cheers!

Indie Horror Month Exclusive: Tiny Lister Talks K-11, New Friday Sequel; Reflects on No Holds Barred, Prison and More

Posted by thehorrorchick on March 5, 2013

Indie Horror Month Exclusive: Tiny Lister Talks K-11, New Friday Sequel; Reflects on No Holds Barred, Prison and MoreSince making his feature film debut in the 1985 flick Runaway Train, Tommy "Tiny" Lister has worked on over 160 projects, quickly becoming one of the most recognizable character actors of modern cinema.

This Friday, March 8th, Lister's latest film, K-11, will be arriving at limited theaters nationwide. Helmed by first-time director Jules Stewart (Crank: High Voltage, XXX), K-11 also stars Goran Visnjic ("ER," The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), Kate del Castillo ("Weeds"), D.B. Sweeney (The Cutting Edge, Fire in the Sky), Jason Mewes (Clerks I & II) and Portia Doubleday (the upcoming Carrie) and follows what happens inside a troubled portion of a Los Angeles correctional facility reserved for the homosexual and transgender inmates. In the film Lister plays Detroit, and while it's certainly not the first time we've ever seen the seasoned actor as a convict, it's perhaps his most nuanced performance to date.

As someone who grew up on a steady diet of both professional wrestling and horror movies, this writer jumped at the opportunity to chat extensively with Lister about his latest work in K-11 in honor of Indie Horror Month as well as a myriad of his other memorable roles throughout his career, including several other independent projects like Prison, No Holds Barred and even Friday, which made him a cult icon after taking on the role of a bicycle-riding thug by the name of Deebo.

Lister also discussed his involvement with the WWF (now WWE) in the late 1980's and his minor role in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight, which ended up being far more pivotal to the flick's overall story than the actor could have ever imagined when he showed up to shoot his scenes for only a handful of days. Check out all the highlights from our exclusive interview below, and look for more on K-11 this week as we'll hear from director Stewart, too.

Dread Central: Tiny, thank you so much for taking time to speak with me today; I grew up a huge wrestling fan and made my mom take me to the drive-in twice to see No Holds Barred when it came out, and I remember when you showed up in WWF, it absolutely terrified me as a child. I had seen wrestlers in movies but had never seen anyone in the movies except Mr. T in a ring so I was convinced Zeus was real and he was really going to kill (Hulk) Hogan (laughs).

Tiny Lister: Oh, that's hilarious- thank you (laughs). No Holds Barred really made me a household name which was just something truly remarkable to happen to a guy like me. I don’t think anyone at that time had ever seen a guy like Zeus step into the ring so yeah, there was an intensity to what Hogan and I did at some of those events unlike anything fans had ever witnessed. I think I scared a lot of children actually (laughs).

Dread Central: I also rediscovered another movie from early in your career - Prison (Blu-ray review) - which you did with Renny Harlin. I think that may have been the first time you played a convict so it kind of feels like we're going full-circle here by also talking about K-11, where you're also playing a criminal, but it's an entirely different performance just the same.

Tiny Lister: Oh wow- I hadn’t thought about Prison in such a long time. Wow. That was such a crazy shoot, too; I remember working with Renny and we shot that in this city in Wyoming which at that time was the number one place for suicide in the US; because there wasn't much to do - the city was a ghost town after its local mills closed down - it forced us cast members to really band together. I remember we even watched the playoffs together. It was the Lakers versus the Celtics that year so those were some fun games to watch with the guys.

But yeah- it was just an amazing experience making Prison because at that point, it was probably the biggest production I had been involved with. It was also Renny's first American film so I could tell he was a little nervous at first but settled into everything later after getting that first day of shooting under his belt. But what was crazy about Prison is that we shot the movie using real inmates, which meant there had to be real prison guards on the premises with very, very real guns, too. That made going to the bathroom very interesting for a guy like me because I look like I should be a prisoner; I always had to make sure to change into my normal clothes first because I definitely didn't need some prison guard mistaking me for an escaping prisoner when I all I needed to use the bathroom (laughs).

Dread Central: Now you've enjoyed a lengthy career playing imposing characters, including in K-11, but that all pretty much began with No Holds Barred- could you ever have imagined just how much your life was going to change after playing Zeus? How much training did you have to do for the movie?

Tiny Lister: Oh wow, yeah- everything changed. My career changed and my life changed- people knew me after that. And No Holds Barred was definitely the most intense training I ever did: I was a national shot put champ and I trained harder for that movie than I ever did as an athlete. I went in at 282 pounds and after three or four months, I was at 305. I trained like an animal for that movie; we shot No Holds Barred in Atlanta and I have to say that as a 20-year-old just really starting out in the business, it was pretty incredible to get to work out and train with both Hulk and Lee Haney during production. When you have those guys there to spot you…wow.

So I felt like I was half-human, half-animal by the time we finished working on No Holds Barred and I think I brought a lot of that with me into the WWF. I definitely think that scared a lot of people- they thought I was a monster, no joke. I had three Pay-Per-View matches at WWF and they were all incredible. I was actually supposed to wrestle at a WrestleMania against Hulk but they pulled the plug because I was getting real death threats; people thought this big, black dude from Compton was going to beat down the great, white Hulk. We both had the same management at the time so Hulk and I just milked it (laughs).

But look- I've been a part of a lot of great movies but there's just nothing like being in front of 80,000 people; that energy- wow. There are just no words to even describe what that feels like. It was an incredible part of my life.

Indie Horror Month Exclusive: Tiny Lister Talks K-11, New Friday Sequel; Reflects on No Holds Barred, Prison and More

Dread Central: Well, let's talk about your current project, K-11; I don't think we have ever seen you quite like we do in this movie. Was that the appeal of taking on a character like Detroit, that it allowed you to do some different things as an actor?

Tiny Lister: Oh definitely, that's why I wanted to do this first and foremost. I've had a lot of great roles, but you always want to do something different and challenge yourself in new ways which is just what I could do with a role like this. And Jules is such a beautiful soul; she really deserves to get recognition for the risks that she takes in this movie.

But I knew Detroit was a bad, bad man so I had to really commit to that in order to make that performance believable and it was hard to get inside the head of a guy like that. But if I'm going to play the devil, l'm going to play the best devil that I can. And this cast was so fantastic, too- I really loved working on this movie; Jules really did something incredible.

Dread Central: You mentioned that Detroit is a 'bad, bad man' but at certain points in K-11 we see a bit of humanity in him as well- was it hard finding that inside a character like this?

Tiny Lister: You know, that humanity- Portia's character was the only one that could find it really; I don't know if I necessarily did. In my mind, he was abused and spoke down to his entire life and the only time he's heard the word love directed toward him is when Portia says it and so it releases all of his anger and emotion in some really scary and emotional ways. I knew this was going to be an intimate performance for me to try and pull off, but I wanted to try and not be the criminal you'd expect a guy like me to be.

Look, I've built a great career around being a bad guy but in reality, I'm just a big baby. When you grow up in Compton, you have to get that 'look' down- you know the look I'm talking about right? My look (laughs).

Dread Central: Oh yeah, I know it well (laughs).

Tiny Lister: Good, you understand then that I have a character look that's become my trademark look and Jules just went for it in K-11 off of that look. Detroit is a very sick person and when he puts his will on you, it's never a good thing.

You know, a lot of people can't handle something this honest. Jules is a rebel and she's just so out of the box and that's what I'm looking for when taking on roles these days. More movies need to stir things up and I think we need more movies like K-11 being made. On the outside, our cast may look like a circus but we're a family and that was all due to Jules. Somehow she knew this hodge-podge of actors would click as well as we did.

Dread Central: I'm sure you get asked this a lot, but looking back at your lengthy career, what's been the most surprising aspect of all your success?

Tiny Lister: I am just very blessed; a few years ago I was sitting at Michael Jackson's funeral and someone pointed out that I was one of the few black heavies left working today. I think there's just myself, Ving (Rhames), Tony Todd, Terry Crews- maybe a few more but we recently lost Michael Clarke Duncan, which was so incredibly sad for me. But it took someone saying that to me for me to realize just how truly blessed I am and have been throughout my career- I've worked with some of the greatest actors, directors, musicians and athletes throughout my career like Marlon Brando, Jon Voight, Christopher Walken, Faye Dunaway, Eddie Murphy, Will Smith, Walter Hill, Jamie Foxx, Johnny Depp, Michael Jackson and even someone like Christopher Nolan who has come to mean so much to modern moviemaking, too.

Dread Central: I have to say I was pretty stoked to see you pop up in the final act of The Dark Knight.

Tiny Lister: Oh thank you- that was just one of those projects you get involved with that you have no idea just how huge it was going to end up at the time. I mean, I knew people were going to be excited for another Batman movie but it becoming one of the biggest movies of all time? No way. And I had no idea that my small role was really integral to The Dark Knight's finale either.

So they flew me to London and we ended up shooting those scenes in London at the very same place we shot The Fifth Element so I felt right at home back in London. What's really cool about that role is when you think about it, l saved Gotham from itself in the end. And to be part of a number one franchise too is incredible- plus what Heath (Ledger) did as Joker…man, I have never seen anything like what Heath did in that performance. I don't think we'll ever see anything like that again.

Dread Central: One last question- I grew up a fan of the original Friday and I know there's been some talk about one last Friday movie- is that something you've been approached about?

Tiny Lister: Oh yeah! Ice (Cube) wants to get the whole gang back together again, and it looks he is going to get EVERYONE, even some of the people who maybe held out before (laughs). We're supposed to start shooting in April and it's going to be called Last Friday in fact. Terry Crews and I are gonna tear everyone up, he's playing my brother in this and everybody better watch out for Deebo (laughs). I'm gonna bring the bike out of retirement for one last ride since Ice said this was going to be the very last Friday. I'm saying it now- we're gonna put the house off on this one. Just wait and see (laughs).

Killer Kart (James Feeney): An evil grows, hiding in plain sight. Just four wheels and a basket, but forged of aluminum in the fires of Hell. Tonight, it will strike, and the closing crew of a small-town grocery store will be thrust into the fight of their lives against the devastation of… The Killer Kart!

West Coast Premiere- Him Indoors (Paul Davis): Gregory Brewster is a serial killer; only problem is, he's agoraphobic! Facing an impending eviction from his family home, Gregory has a plan that will save him from being subjected to the one thing he's terrified of... the outside world. Things don't quite go to plan, however, when a surprise visit from his new neighbor finds him in a very awkward situation.

World Premiere- The Root of the Problem (Ryan Spindell): Set in the candy-colored world of 1950s suburbia, a reluctant young housewife suspects that the friendly neighborhood dentist is hiding a horrible secret, but is it just the anesthesia at work or is there something more sinister hiding below the surface? Open up and say AHHHHHHHH!

Q&A to Follow Shorts Block

BLOCK TWO
2:45 PM- CineMayhem Retro Screening of BEHIND THE MASK: THE RISE OF LESLIE VERNON (Scott Glosserman): The next great psycho horror slasher has given a documentary crew exclusive access to his life as he plans his reign of terror over the sleepy town of Glen Echo, all the while deconstructing the conventions and archetypes of the horror genre for them.

BLOCK THREE
4:45 PM- K-11 (Jules Stewart): Like Alice in a brutally violent Wonderland, music executive Ray Saxx, Jr., is trapped in K-11, a very unique part of the Los Angeles County Prison System. He was out cold when he arrived, and he has no idea how he got there – all he knows is he needs to get the hell out…alive and intact. To do that, Ray must navigate through a maze of drug addled-transvestite-criminal politics with obstacles at every turn. Insane cellmates, corrupt guards and his own issues are just a few of what he’s dealing with while he pieces together his means of release from this dark and dangerous rabbit hole - K-11.

BLOCK FOUR
7:00 PM- RESOLUTION (Justin Benson, Aaron Moorhead): In an abandoned cabin on the edge of an Indian reservation, Mike (Peter Cilella) stages a risky intervention to force his friend Chris (Vinny Curran) off meth and into rehab. But what begins as an attempt to save his friend’s life takes an unexpected turn when ominous threats start appearing around the house – and they realize that Chris’s addictions are the least of their worries. One of the most talked-about discoveries of last year’s festival circuit, Resolution is genre-bending horror at its most bone-chilling. Q&A to Follow.

SATURDAY, MARCH 2nd

BLOCK ONE
12:00 PM- THE SLEEPER (Justin Russell): Alpha Gamma Theta are hosting a party for new pledges for the upcoming year. As the new pledges arrive, so does an uninvited guest. Little do the sisters know someone is watching them in the shadows. As the girls shower, study, eat and sleep, the stalker studies the girls. One by one he finds the girls at their most vulnerable and murders them. The police hunt for the missing girls and their killer, but will they find them in time? Or will the girls be forced to fight for their lives?

BLOCK TWO
2:00 PM- BREATH OF HATE (Sean Cain): One last job, and Love is out of the erotic escort business. Unfortunately, that final job is for a trio of escaped mental patients who are looking to change the world. One victim at a time. Q&A to Follow.

BLOCK THREE
4:15 PM- COLDWATER (Dave Parker): ColdWater is a psychological suspense thriller dealing with one man housesitting, unaware of who or what might be with him. Q&A to Follow.

BLOCK FOUR

Inspired by children’s educational books, the motion picture is comprised of twenty-six individual chapters; each helmed by a different director assigned a letter of the alphabet. The directors were then given free rein in choosing a word to create a story involving death. Provocative, shocking, funny and ultimately confrontational, THE ABCs OF DEATH is the definitive vision of modern horror diversity. Q&A to Follow.

Q&A to Follow Shorts Block

BLOCK TWO
2:45 PM- CineMayhem Retro Screening of BEHIND THE MASK: THE RISE OF LESLIE VERNON (Scott Glosserman): The next great psycho horror slasher has given a documentary crew exclusive access to his life as he plans his reign of terror over the sleepy town of Glen Echo, all the while deconstructing the conventions and archetypes of the horror genre for them.

BLOCK THREE
4:45 PM- K-11 (Jules Stewart): Like Alice in a brutally violent Wonderland, music executive Ray Saxx, Jr., is trapped in K-11, a very unique part of the Los Angeles County Prison System. He was out cold when he arrived, and he has no idea how he got there – all he knows is he needs to get the hell out…alive and intact. To do that, Ray must navigate through a maze of drug addled-transvestite-criminal politics with obstacles at every turn. Insane cellmates, corrupt guards and his own issues are just a few of what he’s dealing with while he pieces together his means of release from this dark and dangerous rabbit hole - K-11.

BLOCK FOUR
7:00 PM- RESOLUTION (Justin Benson, Aaron Moorhead): In an abandoned cabin on the edge of an Indian reservation, Mike (Peter Cilella) stages a risky intervention to force his friend Chris (Vinny Curran) off meth and into rehab. But what begins as an attempt to save his friend’s life takes an unexpected turn when ominous threats start appearing around the house – and they realize that Chris’s addictions are the least of their worries. One of the most talked-about discoveries of last year’s festival circuit, Resolution is genre-bending horror at its most bone-chilling. Q&A to Follow.

From the Press Release
In less than 48 hours, the first-ever CineMayhem Film Fest will be under way at the Muvico Thousand Oaks (166 West Hillcrest Drive, Thousand Oaks, CA), and to get the fans out there ready, we have a few final details we wanted to share in preparation of our two-day celebration of independent horror this weekend.

Scream Factory, another CineMayhem sponsor, has also kindly donated several of their cult classic Blu-rays for fans at the fest, and those will be raffled off during the other screenings.

There will also be Sideshow Collectible gift card giveaways during the CineMayhem party Saturday night directly following the 8:45 pm screening of THE ABC's OF DEATH, and anyone in attendance for CineMayhem may attend the festivities located at Bogart's Bar & Grill (2nd floor of the Muvico Theaters).

Created as a way to pay homage to and celebrate the spirit of independent filmmaking and those unafraid to take risks with their storytelling, CineMayhem's diverse and often genre-bending line-up includes advanced screenings of two highly anticipated genre projects including Magnet Releasing's visceral horror anthology THE ABC's OF DEATH and Breaking Glass Pictures' latest thriller K-11 directed by Jules Stewart (CRANK: HIGH VOLTAGE, MORTAL KOMBAT) as well as a retro screening of Scott Glosserman's BEHIND THE MASK: THE RISE OF LESLIE VERNON.

Other new additions to the two-day schedule include the world premiere of Adam Barnick's brand new music video for Rivulets latest song "How, Who" as well as Drew Daywalt's latest short MEAT and a special screening of another short from Ryan Spindell, KIRKSDALE , which will precede a special screening of Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead's 2012 festival favorite RESOLUTION on Sunday evening along.

CineMayhem will also be hosting the World Premieres of ROADSIDE directed by Eric England (MADISON COUNTY) and the latest short film from Ryan Spindell (KIRKSDALE), THE ROOT OF THE PROBLEM as well as the West Coast Premieres of two other short films- Paul Davis' (BEWARE THE MOON: REMEMBERING AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON) HIM INDOORS and SPLIT THE CHECK by Patrick Rea (NAILBITER).

SATURDAY, MARCH 2nd

BLOCK ONE
12:00 PM- THE SLEEPER (Justin Russell): Alpha Gamma Theta are hosting a party for new pledges for the upcoming year. As the new pledges arrive, so does an uninvited guest. Little do the sisters know someone is watching them in the shadows. As the girls shower, study, eat and sleep, the stalker studies the girls. One by one he finds the girls at their most vulnerable and murders them. The police hunt for the missing girls and their killer, but will they find them in time? Or will the girls be forced to fight for their lives?

BLOCK TWO
2:00 PM- BREATH OF HATE (Sean Cain): One last job, and Love is out of the erotic escort business. Unfortunately, that final job is for a trio of escaped mental patients who are looking to change the world. One victim at a time. Q&A to Follow.

BLOCK THREE
4:15 PM- COLDWATER (Dave Parker): ColdWater is a psychological suspense thriller dealing with one man housesitting, unaware of who or what might be with him. Q&A to Follow.

BLOCK FOUR
6:30 PM- ROADSIDE (Eric England): Roadside is a high concept thriller that finds Dan Summers and his pregnant wife, Mindy, in a fight for their lives when they are held hostage in their car by an unseen gunman on the side of a desolate mountain road.

BLOCK FIVE
8:45 PM- THE ABCS OF DEATH (Jake West, Angela Bettis, Simon Rumley, Tak Sakaguchi, Yoshihiro Nishimura, etc.): Twenty-six directors. Twenty-six ways to die. The ABCs OF DEATH is perhaps the most ambitious anthology film ever conceived with productions spanning fifteen countries and featuring segments directed by over two dozen of the world's leading talents in contemporary genre film. Inspired by children’s educational books, the motion picture is comprised of twenty-six individual chapters; each helmed by a different director assigned a letter of the alphabet. The directors were then given free rein in choosing a word to create a story involving death. Provocative, shocking, funny and ultimately confrontational, THE ABCs OF DEATH is the definitive vision of modern horror diversity. Q&A to Follow.

CineMayhem Party to be Held Right After THE ABCS OF DEATH at Bogart's Bar & Grill inside the Muvico. All CineMayhem attendees may attend.

Tonight, it will strike, and the closing crew of a small-town grocery store will be thrust into the fight of their lives against the devastation of… The Killer Kart!

West Coast Premiere- Him Indoors (Paul Davis): Gregory Brewster is a serial killer; only problem is, he's agoraphobic! Facing an impending eviction from his family home, Gregory has a plan that will save him from being subjected to the one thing he's terrified of... the outside world. Things don't quite go to plan, however, when a surprise visit from his new neighbor finds him in a very awkward situation.

World Premiere- The Root of the Problem (Ryan Spindell): Set in the candy-colored world of 1950s suburbia, a reluctant young housewife suspects that the friendly neighborhood dentist is hiding a horrible secret, but is it just the anesthesia at work or is there something more sinister hiding below the surface?
