The SXSW Film Festival has officially announced their Midnighters line up for 2015 and throwback horror films Deathgasm and We Are Still Here, both from Dark Sky Films, will be included in the program.
We Are Still Here takes place in the cold, winter fields of New England, where a mysterious house wakes up every 30 years and demands a sacrifice. Deathgasm – what Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure would have been as a horror film – centers on new kid in town Brodie and bad-boy Zakk. The two quickly bond over their mutual admiration of heavy metal. But when these two metal thrashing losers unwittingly summon malevolent forces, their dreams of stardom may just have to be put on hold.
