Troy Escamilla’s first full length feature film, Party Night, is set to premiere this Fall. Produced by Escamilla and Renee K. Smith, in collaboration with Fright Meter Films, Party Night is a throwback to the great slasher film of the 80’s. Timothy Sullins will be making his directorial debut with the film.



“This film is truly a love letter to fans of the genre. There are many references in the script that horror fans will grin widely at, but the film is still unique in its own right,” Escamilla states.

Party Night centers on six friends who become prey for a sadistic psychopath when they decide to ditch their high school’s after prom party for their own celebration at a secluded house.



Escamilla is extremely familiar with the horror genre, he founded the Fright Meter Awards, with an international committee made of genre bloggers, writers, directors, producers, actors and fans, including us here at Horror Fuel.
