ScreamFest is churning up some great films this year, and DEAD ANT should not be ignored! I mean who wouldn’t enjoy watching a horror-comedy with Tom Arnold, Sean Astin, and Jake Busey? The fun and horror are evident in the trailer, so don’t take my word for it, check it out! Oh yeah, one more thing, don’t forget your ant spray!

Sean Astin (The Goonies), Tom Arnold (True Lies), Jake Busey (Identity) and Rhys Coiro (Texas Rising) are starring in DEAD ANT, an indie horror comedy directed by Ron Carlson. DEAD ANT will have a world premiere on October 10th, 2017 at the ScreamFest Horror Film Festival. Also in the movie are Danny Woodburn (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), Michael Horse, Leisha Hailey (The L Word), and Cameron Richardson (Murder in the First).

When the “one-hit-wonder” glam-metal band “Sonic Grave” embark on a trip to Coachella in hopes of a comeback, their peyote trip pit stop in Joshua Tree incites an “unworldly” vicious attack, and they must “rock” themselves out of harm’s way.

Tickets are on sale now for this event.
