Locally based horror filmmaker, Eddie Lengyel regularly releases movies on his Fright Teck Pictures.
The latest such flick, American Poltergeist: The Curse of Lilith Ratchet, centers on a woman and her friend who put a curse into motion after they acquire a shrunken head. They take the thing to a paranormal podcast host who helps them determine its identity, and they subsequently unleash a dead woman’s evil spirit in the process.
Cinematographer Greg Kraus shot the film on a RED camera in 6k at locations in Cleveland and Akron.
The movie makes its world premiere at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 20, at Atlas Cinemas Lakeshore 7 in Euclid. Tickets are $10. The evening will include games and raffle prizes, including a $50 Atlas Cinemas Gift Card.
The DVD will be available on Walmart in 2019, and the film is currently being shopped at the American Film Market (AFM) for worldwide distribution.
