Sci-Fi, Slaughter and Slashers Splice in the Spa City: The 2018 Hot Springs Horror Film Festival
Posted Saturday, September 8, 2018, at 10:27 PM
The Spa City once again hosts the International Horror Film Festival.
Summer slowly succumbs to the impending fall. Football's Friday Night Lights, College Saturdays and NFL Sundays beckon, and autumn winds will soon breathe cold with the fleeting daylight. The change in seasons - more importantly than any pigskin - signifies the imminent arrival of Halloween which means that the Hot Springs International Horror Film Festival is finally in reach.
This year's iteration of the HSIHFF runs from Thursday, September 20 through Sunday, September 23 at Hot Springs' historic Central Theater. Admission ranges from $9 single-movie tickets to $85 for the VIP Film Festival & Seminars pass. Purchases can be made at the box office or online:
During the 2017 festival, now nine-year-old Bob Sheendazzled crowds with his short film The Rake (WATCH NOW). Actress and filmmaker Jessica Cameron (Mr. Hush, Silent Night, Truth or Dare) took part in Q&A sessions while promoting two films she starred in at last year's HSIHFF: Red EyeandBuckout Road. The Indie linchpin engaged Arkansans and took photographs with fans. "The people were lovely," Cameron said of the attendees.
Festival Director Bill Volland has put together another exciting lineup of movies, guests and extras for 2018. The one and only Michael Berryman (One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, The Hills Have Eyes, Weird Science) will be in attendance on Sunday night at 5:30 p.m. to screen his movie The Evil Within(2017). Q&A will follow immediately after.
1990's Leatherface R.A. Mihailoff (License to Drive, Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III, Hatchet II) will also be in attendance. See Mihailoff's new picture Ride Hard: Live Free(2018) Saturday at 8 p.m. with an after party at Fat Jacks beginning at 10 p.m. Fans can also meet Mihailoff at 5 p.m. at Rodney's Cycle Housein Little Rock. Ride with Leatherface himself from The Rock to Hot Springs for the screening! Ticket prices are only $6 for those riding along on the adventure.
"If you come to the film festival, don't expect to find [Michael] Berryman or R.A. [Mihailoff] behind a table signing autographs," Volland said. "They will be watching films, socializing with fans and filmmakers, and available for photo ops. Many of the films screening are world premieres including R.A.'s film while Berryman's is an Arkansas premiere. Over 75 percent of the films are world premieres. Out of the feature films that screen at the festival, a very high percentage go on to get distribution."
In addition to both horror icons hanging out at the HSIHFF all four days, both Berryman and Mihailoff will sign autographs at the Hot Springs International Horror Film Festival table located in the Expo Hall at the Hot Springs Convention Center (SPA-CON) on both Saturday and Sunday from 2 p.m. until 3:30 p.m. While not associated with the film festival, Pam Grier, Sean Maher and Eddie Munster himself Butch Patrick will appear at the Spa-Con.

Lilly and Cece are lifelong best friends. However, when matching tattoos and some mysterious ink jeopardize their friendship they have to face the good, bad, and the undead to save themselves. Director: Kyra Elise Gardner. Starring Martina Meneses, Jaidi Ventura, Adam Hurtig (7 minutes).
Q: What would you like audiences to take away from Inked?
A: "The take away I want audiences to have is that it’s okay being pushed into different things with your friends," Kyra Elise Gardner said. "We do crazy things for the people we love and with best friends you never know what can happen - like getting splashed with a gallon of blood from a hipster zombie. But at the end of the day there needs to be compromise. You can’t keep giving without taking something back, there needs to be a balance or else it isn’t a friendship. In my film, the character Lilly is fed up with always having to clean up Cece’s mess - she never takes ownership or steps up. In the end, Cece ultimately steps up and saves Lilly’s life giving their friendship a new balance. Although there’s still plenty they’ll have to clean up like blood all over the walls."
Q: What themes and subtext do the film explore?
A: "A theme that this film has is that friendship depends on making sacrifices," Gardner explained. "Sometimes you’re pushed into doing things you’re not really comfortable with in order to make your friends happy. And if it’s your best friend you’ll go extra miles in sacrificing your time and money in showing them you care about them. A lot of the subtext that I thought of during the writing process had to do with our choices being permanent. College is a new world full of different experiences and new people. It leads to a lot of things like unprotected sex, drugs, alcohol, and tattoos. I think subconsciously I used tattoos as a reference to STDS - going into something quickly and uninformed and the outcome being forever like turning into an undead zombie."
A transient with gold in his blood accidentally unleashes his secret while experimenting with extraction methods and everyone wants a piece. Director: Tom Botchii Skowronski. Starring Lane Garrison, Rafael Siegel, Jake Jacobson and Jessee Foudray (9 minutes).

Best pals Joan and Michael invite their dearest friends over for a cordial dinner to discuss the passing of Joan's husband Neil. But as each guest arrives, dark secrets are revealed and murder is definitely on the menu. Director: David Palamaro. Starring Jessica Graham, Christopher Soren Kelly, Sheila Cutchlow, Daniel Ahearn, Paul Rose, Jr., Emilia Richeson and Edward Lupinski (76 minutes).
Q: How did the idea for Murder Made Easy come to you?
A: "The idea for 'Murder Made Easy' came about because I was having difficulty finding funding for a horror script I co-wrote with my friend Suju Vijayan," David Palamaro said. "The script is called 'The Housesitter' and although it did well at screenplay contests (we won Slamdance for Best Horror Screenplay), we were having problems raising the funds to get the movie made as it needs a fairly sizable budget. So out of frustration and having the burning need to make a film I thought: 'What if I came up with a simple one-location murder/mystery? Something with very few actors and a project I could fund myself?' And so 'Murder Made Easy' was born."
Q: What are some of your inspirations?
A: "My writer Tim Davis and I were inspired by movies such as 'Sleuth' (1972), 'Deathtrap' (1982) and Alfred Hitchcock's 'Rope' (1948) - all of which were stage plays before being adapted into films," Palamaro explained. "And that made sense as 'Murder Made Easy' is very much like a play. We just love those old fashioned Agatha Christie type of twisty-turny murder mysteries where you're never sure what's really going on. We wanted 'Murder Made Easy' to be an ode to that type of storytelling."
Q: What was the casting process like?
A: "The casting process for 'Murder Made Easy' started with my two lead actors - Jessica Graham and Christopher Soren Kelly," Palamaro said. "I cast them both after seeing a few short films that they starred in and Chris directed at a film festival called Dances With Films. Chris was a magnetic actor and I knew I wanted to work with him. And then I saw Jessica in Chris's short film 'Monkeys.' I knew she'd be perfect for the lead role of Joan."
"I approached them at the festival and introduced myself," Palamaro explained. "Later, I sent them the script for 'Murder Made Easy' and they said, 'Sure let's do it!' Jessica also came on board as our producer and helped us with the casting process by setting up auditions and bringing in the other actors. And I couldn't be more pleased and proud of the actors in 'Murder Made Easy.' They did a tremendous job."
Q: What was the most challenging part of the production?
A: "By far the most challenging aspect of making 'Murder Made Easy' was the constraints of time and budget," Palamaro said. "We wanted to shoot each scene in one long take a la Hitchcock's 'Rope.' Problem was we didn't have the money for steady-cams, dollies or even video monitors! But our amazingly talented cinematographer Sherri Kauk came up with all kinds of clever work-arounds to achieve the long takes that I wanted for the film. We also had a really short shooting schedule which put tremendous pressure on me to get a lot of material shot each day. I think we averaged 12 pages a day which is very ambitious."
"But the entire cast and crew were super supportive and always pushed through and encouraged me to never give up until we finished the film," Palamaro continued. "I owe a lot to them! In one case, one of our actors got pneumonia the day before he was supposed to shoot his scenes. We had to unfortunately recast his part and Edmund Lupinski came on board last minute and played that role. He did a great job, memorizing long passages of dialogue in a short amount of time but he really nailed it. That's the kind of dedication we got from everyone behind the scenes. I can't [praise] my cast and crew enough!"

This is an anthology film consisting of five horror tales from five different writers. Director: Rocky Gray. Starring Greg Fallon, Jordan Phipps, Mitchell Musolino, Wendy Keeling and Sable Griedel (93 minutes).
Q: What inspired you to do an anthology?
A: "We decided to do an anthology because at the time (2016) there were only a few that were being made and none of the indie anthologies were specific to Halloween that we knew of," Rocky Gray said. "I am a big fan of the 'Creepshow' (1982), All Hallows' Eve (2013) and 'Trick ‘r Treat' (2007) anthology films and wanted to do something fun like that as well."
Q: How was the horror host character developed?
A: "The horror host Malvoliaplayed by Jennifer Nangle is an actual horror host on YouTube." Gray explained. "We were friends on Facebook, so when I pitched her the idea of Malvolia having a Halloween special for the movie she was into it. So, we made it happen."
Q: Which horror movies inspire your Indie filmmaking?
A: "I think we can trace the inspiration back to John Carpenter’s 'Halloween' (1978)," Gray said. "Knowing it was done on a very limited budget in 20 days can light a fire under you and inspire you to go and do what you want to do with what you have. It can be done. It really all comes down to the attitude and talent involved that makes it or breaks it."

Avril moves into a new apartment, hoping to start over after a traumatic event. But, can she really escape her past? Filmmaker and star: Sarah Misch (14 minutes).
Q: What themes and/or subtext does the film possess?
A: "Our goal in making 'Corpse Pose' was to create a horror film that was female-driven, millennial, urban, and of course, spooky," Misch explained. "Without giving too much away, the film is about personal guilt and healing after a toxic, abusive relationship and explores aspects of what it means to be a woman living alone in a big city."
Q: What do you want audiences to take away from this particular piece?
A: "I want audiences to enjoy whatever aspects of the film speak to them," Misch said. "I will say, however, that I have been most gratified by the viewers who relate to the main character's journey of finding her own strength in the wake of tragedy and upheaval."

Directed by Victoria Lopez and Ji young Na. Starring Margaret Manning. *Animation (3 minutes).
Q: How long did it take to create the film?
A: "The film took about one year and a half to complete," Na and Lopez said. "Half the year was dedicated to pre-production: story development, character and environment design. After this, we spent a year working on CG production: animating, texturing, lighting and rendering the film."
Q: Can you discuss the process behind the project?
A: "Making this film required an organized schedule, and long hours of work but it was worth it in the end," the filmmakers continued. "We learned how to work as a team, and also learned a lot about the animation filmmaking process."
Q: What was the inspiration for making this particular film?
A: "We got inspired from a lot of 70-80s' classic horror films and monster films, such as 'The Shinning' (1980), 'Gremlins' (1984), and 'Critters' (1986)," Lopez and Na said. "We tried to reference even earlier films' mice-en-scenes like Frankenstein! It was very fun to look at the references and try to incorporate them in our film with an original twist!"
