11/11/11, director Keith Allan’s newest film which opens nationally on November 1, makes its world debut a month early at the 2011 Big Bear Horro-Fi Film Festival® in Big Bear Lake, California. 11/11/11 screens at the Festival’s Opening Night on Friday, September 30.
“We are honored and thrilled to have Keith’s film make its debut here at the Festival,” said Christopher Gaida, Director of Programming. “I know it’s going to be well-received and will set the dark, creepy tone we love to have over this horror weekend. I have goose bumps already!”
Not be confused with director Darren Lynn Bousman’s thriller 11-11-11, Allan’s film revolves around the bizarre and violent behavior of a young couple’s son, who is apparently the gateway to the Apocalypse, which will happen on the child’s November 11, 2011 birthday. Allan also co-wrote the chilling script with Kiff Scholl. MIDNIGHT MOVIE (2008) alum Jon Briddell stars, with David Michael Latt, David Rimawi and Paul Bales producing.
“After busting our collective asses to get this movie done, it is very satisfying to know that we will be screened for an audience that has a passion for the genre,” said Allan of his decision to premiere his film at the Festival. “I personally was drawn to the Festival because of the location. I mean really...short of screening in a dark mid-century castle...deep in the woods is probably the best place to tell a horror story. It really is where the horror story originated...around the fire with the unseen eyes watching you from the dark surrounding woods, super aware of every snap of a twig around you...thrilling. I hope we are able to recapture some of that good old-fashioned fun and fright in the dark of the night.”
An added attraction to the Festival, the 11/11/11 screening package is $15 and includes a free pre-screen wine-and-cheese reception, the film, Q&A with the cast and crew, and an after-party at AV Nightclub . Festivities begin at 8 pm with the film bowing at 9 pm.
