Freakshow Film Festival

Fresh off winning Best Short Film at this year’s Scarefest Film Festival in Lexington, we’re bringing our film back home to the historic Eaton Theatres in Charlotte for some Halloween fun.

Come just outside Lansing to start the night with the Michigan Nordic Fire Festival, after which the Fine Freakshow Folks are following The Third Day with (of course) the original Halloween. But Wait, there’s MORE! Cast and Crew we will be attending the After Party right downtown at The Hall, where pizza and beer will be accompanied by a (likely) all-too-honest Q&A. Looks like we’ll be signing posters and some brand-spankin’ new DVDs! Hope to see you all there!

$5 gets you all the fun!

Winter Haven 2016 Event #4

The ground itself trembles under the weight of the events to come.

With the dawn of a new year, the Witchwood Hold stands at a precipice. Behind the Heroes who reside there lies a legacy of deeds in which they have bested every foe, turned back every threat and carved from a chaotic land a place they can call home.

Before them, however, the path diverges. Two possibilities and only one certainty…

…the certainty that one of those paths leads to darkness and ruin. It is a certainty born of knowledge, and their own experiences in a time that was, but is no longer. The Heroes of the Witchwood turned back the clock and have made great strides against the fate they once knew.

Is it enough? The weapon they possess is incomplete, and the greatest threat they have known thus far now walks the land. The Black King searches for the keys to unlock the power with which he nearly brought the world to its knees. Only a few brave, stalwart men and women stand between him and the completion of his tyrannical ambition.

But there is hope.

The Heroes of the Witchwood are that hope. Assets have been gained, knowledge has been acquired, friends and allies have been brought to their side.

Trials are coming. Will they stand fast and unite as one, or will a craven traitor from within their own ranks seal their doom?

War is coming. Will they fight this war bravely as Heroes, or will they lose their only chance to spare their land from the Black Campaign?

The time is coming. What will YOU do?

Will you join the fight? Will you lend your blade, bow or voice to the Witchwood on this, the eve of its darkest hour?

Choose your path, tell your tale, find your destiny.

Winterhaven is coming.
