Re: “Slices of Life

The Horror Society and TinyCore Pictures have announced that the much talked about Chicago based horror film, SLICES OF LIFE, starring Deneen Melody, Toya Turner, Jack Guasta and Helene Alter-Dyche, will have its world premiere at The Horror Society Film Festival on Saturday, October 23 at 10 PM in the historic Portage Theater. 107 minutes

“SLICES OF LIFE” captures the struggle of young amnesiac Mira (played by Kaylee Williams) as she looks for clues to her own identity in the drawings of three personal sketchbooks. Mira’s world soon devolves into a harrowing nightmare as the stories in the books begin to blend with her reality.

A throwback to old school anthology horror movies, filmmakers Anthony G. Sumner and Eric Richter have created a chiller with something scary for everyone. Bloodsucking parasites, disembowelment, zombies, serial killers, demon children, violent vixens, rabid office workers and angry embryos all spring to life from the flesh covered sketch books featured in SLICES OF LIFE.

"We wanted create an over the top, creepy, gory, fun, ultra-low budget horror movie that had something for every horror fan” director Anthony G. Sumner explains. "Doing the feature as an anthology offered us the ability to really pack a lot of different themes into one feature film. The early press response has been amazing.”

This is an authentic Chicago Independent film in every aspect. It stars a cast of Chicago actors, all scenes were filmed at various locations in and around Chicago, so it seems only fitting that the world premiere be in Chicago at The Horror Society Film Festival. Start your Halloween early by joining the cast and crew for this special one time event on Saturday, October 23 at 10 PM in the historic Portage Theater. Tickets are available at http://www.horrorsociety.com/festivals/
