SCREENINGS

“The Violence Movie”
We have a special screening for you! Almost 30 years after brothers David and Eric Wilkinson and best friend Joey Shaughnessy decided to make a horror “movie” with a rented VHS camera, it has been picked up for distribution and will be aired to the public on The Sundance Now Channel beginning in October.
 
New Jersey Horror Con and Film Festival has it first!
In this exclusive premiere screening of The Violence Movie!
 
Back in the summer of 1988, they rented a VHS camera from “Erol’s Video Club” and set out to make an homage to the Friday The 13th: The Franchise, just for fun. They called it The Violence Movie. Re-edited recently along with securing a new score by Harry Manfredini (who scored the original Friday the 13th franchise). Don’t miss this screening! With a Q and A with David and Eric Wilkinson afterwards!
CHECK OUT THE TRAILER HERE!

“The Barn”-

It’s Halloween 1989 and best friends Sam and Josh (Mitchell Musolino and Will Stout) are trying to enjoy their last “Devil’s Night” before graduating high school. Trouble soon arises when the two pals and a group of friends (Lexi Dripps, Cortland Woodard, Nikki Darling and Nickolaus Joshua) take a detour on their way to a rock concert, finding an old abandoned barn and awakening the evil inside…The Boogeyman, Hallowed Jack and The Candycorn Scarecrow. Now it’s up to Sam and Josh to find a way to protect their friends and defeat the creatures that lurk within The Barn.
