2019 Edition To Open With World Premiere Of VEROTIKA, Directorial Debut By Punk/Metal Legend Glenn Danzig

Cinepocalypse, Chicago’s premiere festival for electrifying and provocative genre cinema, returns to the Music Box Theatre June 13th for eight days of features, shorts, events and surprises, including eight fantastic break-out world premieres!

We’re proud to announce our new presenting sponsor for the third edition of the festival: Alter, a horror brand from Gunpowder & Sky that curates, develops and distributes award-winning short films, series, and feature films.

Cinepocalypse is rolling out the blood-red carpet for some of the most exciting voices in horror filmmaking of this age. We’re thrilled to host a special screening of Culture Shock, directed by Gigi Saul Guerrer, one of Variety’s 10 Latinxs to Watch. Her contribution to Hulu and Blumhouse’s popular Into The Dark series follows a young Mexican woman as her pursuit for the American Dream turns into the American Nightmare.

Caryn Waecther tackles isolation in the age of social media with her haunting sophomore feature Deadcon, following real-life YouTubers Lauren Elizabeth and Claudia Sulewski up against vengeful ghosts even more horrifying than their devoted fans.

Dark pasts come calling back in Veronika Franz & Severin Fiala’s Sundance hit The Lodge as the fate of a young woman and her new, grudging step-children unravel in this star-studded psychological slowburn featuring Riley Keough, Jaeden Lieberher, Alicia Silverstone, Richard Armitage and Lia McHugh.

Pollyanna McIntosh, best known for her role on AMC’s The Walking Dead, moves into the director seat for Darlin’, a follow-up to Lucky McKee’s 2011 film The Woman, while also reprising her starring role in the debut that charged SXSW’s Midnight Madness earlier this year.
