[Press release from the filmmaker.]
www.theatreofterror.net) is coming to Hudson and they’re bringing their multi-award winning independent film “FACES” with them! As an official selection of the International Horror Hotel Film Festival and Convention the film has already won Best Suspense/ Thriller in the feature film category and is now in the running for Best Feature overall. The story’s focus is Jersey City resident Frank Walker. Frank is reaching wits end trying to keep his life in order as his money and mental troubles gradually get worse. With hints about a troubled past we begin to understand that Frank’s behavior may have origins we aren’t privy to. One night, after experiencing yet another failed job interview, he takes a long hard look at himself and makes a decision that will change his life forever. This begins the dark psychological journey into Frank’s mind.
Representing the film at the festival will be writer/director and lead actor Tom Ryan and veteran actor Edward X. Young. Mr. Young has appeared in over 70 independent films and has been nominated for the Best Supporting Actor award at the Horror Hotel for his role as the snide Henry Benson. The festival takes place at the Clarion Inn in Hudson, Ohio from June 5th thru June 7th with “FACES” screening on June 5th at 6:55 p.m. ( www.horrorhotel.net)
