Epic Pictures and DREAD has now announced the release date and the pre-order link for the monster-driven, audience chosen, horror film Book of Monsters, from director Stewart Sparke (The Creature Below).
Book of Monsters, written by Paul Butler (The Creature Below), “began life as a Kickstarter campaign back in 2017 with a unique twist – backers could vote on six key elements of the movie including what form the monsters would take and how they killed their victims! The result is a fun horror movie with buckets of gore and creepy monsters which have been brought to life with old-school practical effects and the participation of the audience.”
In the film, starring Nicholas Vince (Hellraiser), Lyndsey Craine, Anna Dawson, and Michaela Longden, Sophie’s 18th birthday becomes a bloodbath when monsters descend upon her house and start to devour the party guests. Sophie and her friends must rally together to send their party crashers back to hell.
The love and support we have received from the horror community to get this film made was absolutely inspiring and since it premiered at FrightFest last year, we’ve been incredibly lucky to see the film play at horror festivals around the world,” said director, Stewart Sparke. “I’ve got to extend a huge thank you to all of our amazing Kickstarter backers for making the film possible in the first place and now to Dread for bringing the film to a much wider audience!”
After a successful run at genre film festivals last year, the film picked up 7 awards including “Best Film” and “Best Special FX” at the New York City Horror Film Festival.
Book of Monsters is set to be released on March 19, 2019. You can pre-order your copy now.
