HellBent Pictures has just announced the long-anticipated screening of Evan Marlowe‘s life-sized puppet horror Abruptio is coming to Cinejoy, the virtual version of Silicon Valley’s Cinequest. Comedy, mystery, blood, A-List voices, action, and puppets combine in the first-of-its-kind surrealistic horror-thriller.


Abruptio features the voice talents of James Marsters (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer”), Jordan Peele (Nope), Robert Englund (A Nightmare on Elm Street), Hana Mae Lee (Pitch Perfect), Christopher McDonald (The Faculty), Darren Darnborough (“True Blood”), Rich Fulcher (“Rick and Morty”), and the iconic Sid Haig (House of 1000 Corpses) in one of his final roles.


The film centers on Les Hackel, who hates his life. “He works a dead-end job, was just dumped by his high-maintenance girlfriend, and still lives with his nagging mom. One night, he discovers a fresh incision behind his neck. His friend Danny tells him it’s a bomb, that someone has implanted one in his neck, too. And then the messages start coming in, forcing Les to carry out missions with deadly results. Les is partnered up with a series of oddball characters to commit heinous tasks. With the violence escalating around him, Les pieces together the clues that reveal the horrific plans to breed a monstrous race of beings.”


After years of production, Abruptio premised at the Santa Monica Film Festival and will screen next virtually at Cinejoy from March 1 to March 12, 2023.
