Fans of guts and gore should head to the Riverside Drive-In for an exclusive, one-night only event. On September 16th, the outdoor venue will screen three movies, including one shot by Pittsburgh filmmakers, for its Independent Horror Film Fest. See schedule and details below:
The Dooms Chapel Horror (2015)
Described as a “creature feature with heart,” The Dooms Chapel Horror follows Kyle (Austin Madding) as he returns to his hometown after a 10-year-long absence. Blamed for the death of his brother, Ryan (William Ryan Watson), he hopes to clear his name by proving that his brother’s death was an accident. But something in the woods promises to take even more from Kyle.
The Barn (2015)
Set in Halloween 1989, this selection from the Pittsburgh-based company Nevermore Production Films follows best friends Sam and Josh as they try to enjoy what’s left of their final Devil’s Night before graduating high school. But trouble arises when the two pals and a group of friends take a detour on their way to a rock concert, finding an old abandoned barn and awakening the evil inside. Now it’s up to Sam and Josh to find a way to protect their friends and defeat the creatures that lurk within.
Night of Something Strange (2016)
Five teenage friends set out for the beach on their Spring Break vacation. Good times are cut short when one of the group members contracts a deadly sexual transmitted disease during a bathroom stop. When they stop for the night at an isolated motel, the real terror begins when the STD virus starts running rampant, turning those infected into the living dead. However, there’s more going on at the motel than meets the eye.
Gates for the event open at 7 p.m. Admission is $8.
