Cathedrals will fall, the river will run red... and THE BIRD will be SLAUGHTERED!

EGOMANIAC’s Video on Demand release August 15th

Award-winning indie hit EGOMANIAC will be having its Video on Demand release on August 15th in the UK, USA and Canada. The second feature film by writer-director Kate Shenton (Screen International Rising Horror Star nominee) will be available to rent and buy on iTunes.

EGOMANIAC has just finished its limited London theatrical run with its final screening being at the Prince Charles Cinema.

The film had its world premiere at Fright Fest 2016 and was also screened at Philadelphia Unnamed Film Festival, Boston Horrorthon, IFC Horrorthon, Lund International Fantastic Film Festival, RIP Horror Festival LA, Unrestricted View Horror Festival, Overkill Film Festival, Dundead and Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival.

Based on Kate Shenton’s personal experiences, EGOMANIAC is a satirical dark comedy about independent filmmaking with a grizzly horror twist at the end. It stars Nic Lamont and Adam Rhys-Davies, as well as Lawrence Harvey (Human Centipede 2 & 3.)

Catherine Sweeney is determined to make a zombie horror romantic comedy, but everybody in the industry keeps telling her she needs to put a talking dog in the film. Desperate to make a dream project Catherine goes to any lengths to make a film, but too much compromise can kill.

EGOMANIAC is also being developed into a morally charged, narrative-adventure mobile app game, made by Feature Games and to be released later in the year. The game will be available Android, iOS, PC & Mac.

Game concept:

You’re fresh out of film school and set to make your independent debut feature film. Only there’s a catch: you can’t finance it. You will need to barter Compromise Points (or CP) against your Sanity Meter, to keep enough money to stay alive, but sane enough to not end up behind bars. Can you handle the sleazy producers, the dodgy distributors and the nasty, backstabbing world of the indie filmmaker?

INTERVIEW: David Naughton
untitled It’s not every day you get to speak to the lead actor in possibly your favourite horror film of all time. Especially on a Tuesday. Tuesdays are usually rubbish! David Naughton should need no introduction to horror fans. Back in 1981, An American Werewolf In London had unprepared cinema goers laughing heartily one second and jumping out of their seats in terror the next. Its tale of two young American tourists coming face-to-teeth with a legendary lycanthropic beast perfectly married a genuinely funny script with razor sharp editing, groundbreaking special effects and a flawless cast to create a monster movie that is still many people’s benchmark today Read on...
