SpectreVision and Cinefamily Host SpectreFest 2015

SpectreVision and Cinefamily Host SpectreFest 2015

For the third consecutive year, the founders and partners of SpectreVision, Daniel Noah, Josh C. Waller and Elijah Wood, have teamed with Cinefamily to present SpectreFest 2015, a curated selection of sneaks peaks and premieres highlighting the best of contemporary
“elevated” genre cinema from around the world. In addition, the happenings will include a range of events, rare repertory programs, radio, music, VR and other forms of media
that exemplify the aesthetic spirit of the festival.

This year’s chosen films include “Goodnight Mommy,” “Cooties,” Shinya Tsukomoto’s “Fires
on the Plain,” SIon Sono’s “Love & Peace,” Michael Madsen’s “The Visit” and “Final Girls.” Events
are hosted by the partners of SpectreVision, featuring appearances by stars and filmmakers,
each followed by a reception. Confirmed guests to date include Elijah Wood, Kristen Wiig and Bushwick Bill, as well as appearances by stalwart genre filmmakers E.
Elias Merhige and Larry Fessenden.

“It’s a deeply satisfying experience to put together an annual list of the films we feel push
the envelope of what genre cinema can be, and to bring these sometimes under-appreciated
films to Los Angeles,” says Noah.

Presented in association with Shudder, a new premium video streaming service,
SpectreFest 2015 kicks off on September 3rd with the exclusive Los Angeles premiere of
SpectreVision’s horror/comedy, “Cooties,” starring Elijah Wood. The two month-long festival will
culminate with the Los Angeles premiere of the acclaimed Israeli mystical drama, “Tikkun,” winner of
Best Actor, Best Israeli Feature, Best Screenplay and Best Cinematography awards at the
Jerusalem Film Festival.

A full list of SpectreFest 2015 events can be found at www.spectrefest.com.
