HI-8

Join us on Wednesday, November 12th for the South Dakota premier of HI-8.

Hi-8 (Horror Independent 8), is a one-of-a-kind, eight-part anthology that brings together some of the most recognized names in shot on video horror from the past 30 years, capturing the creative essence of the golden era of SOV horror film-making. Directors including Tim Ritter, Brad Sykes, Donald Farmer, Todd Sheets, Chris Seaver, Ron Bonk, and Marcus Koch were each challenged to go back to their roots, using only analog equipment while tapping into their decades of experience to tell fresh stories with a dark edge. Like the V/H/S series, Hi-8 brings together the leading genre independent film-makers from across the country to spin tales of terror on tape. All eight segments feature only practical effects and all directors were forbidden to use any post-Internet technology, including HD cameras, green screen, CGI or found footage.

This film is hot off the horror film festival trail and was/is an official selection of well over a dozen festivals and counting with more being announced every week. The directors for Hi-8 are Tim Ritter (Killing Spree), Brad Sykes (Camp Blood), Marcus Koch (100 Tears), Ron Bonk (The Vicious Sweet), Donald Farmer (Demon Queen), Todd Sheets (Zombie Bloodbath), Chris Seaver (Mulva), and Tony Masiello (SOV: The True Independents), who have returned to their classic '80s and '90s style, gore-laced storytelling.

Keeping with the theme of Hi-8, we will be screening two short films before the film.

The first being Zombie in the Wood by local film maker and musician John Barnes.

The second is Riot Ghoul by Gentry McShane. Set in the San Francisco Bay area, this film is a homage to to the Riot Girl puck rock movement of the 90's. The tagline for the film is "Sisterhood never dies."

The screening will be held at Club David in Sioux Falls on Wednesday, November 12, 2014, and will begin at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $6 in advance and $10 at the door.
