New Sinister Cinema Series Line-Up Announced!

Raven Banner's SINISTER CINEMA horror and genre screening series is heading back to theatres across Canada! 

Last week, Cineplex Entertainment's Front Row Center Events and Raven Banner Entertainment revealed its 2014 line-up of exciting horror and genre films bound to keep audiences on the edge of their seats!

Odd Thomas - Thursday February 13

Stephen Sommers (The Mummy) adapts Dean Koontz's best-selling book Odd Thomas concerning a clairvoyant short-order cook (Anton Yelchin) who tries to prevent a supernatural catastrophe that he senses is linked to a mysterious loner. Willem Dafoe, Addison Timlin and Patton Oswalt co-star.

In Fear - Thursday March 13

Jeremy Lovering's Sundance horror sensation, In Fear is a tense psychological horror about a young couple's fight to make it through the night. Home invasion but in a car. In real-time. Tom (Iain De Caestecker) and Lucy (Alice Englert) are trapped in a maze of country roads with only their vehicle for protection, terrorized by an unseen tormentor hell-bent on exploiting their worst fears. Driving, lost and tormented in the night, primal fears of the dark and the unknown give way to fear that you have let the evil in, or that it is already there.

Starring Iain De Caestecker (ABC’s hit series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D), Alice Englert (Beautiful Creatures) and Allen Leech (Downton Abbey).

Cheap Thrills - Thursday March 27

E.L. Katz’s black comedy/thriller, which had its world premiere at South By Southwest, tells the story of Craig (Pat Healy), an auto mechanic who loses his job. He is unable to pay his rent and after seeing the eviction sign, goes to a bar where he meets an old high school friend, Vince (Ethan Embry). A rich couple, Colin and Violet (David Koechner and Sara Paxton), give them money for completing certain tasks. The tasks are simple at first, but later become increasingly violent.

The Battery - Thursday April 17

Jeremy Gardner's elevated genre hit The Battery tells the story of two former baseball players whose personalities clash as they traverse the rural back roads of a post-plague New England teeming with the undead.

Cabin Fever: Patient Zero - Thursday May 29

When a cruise ship in the Caribbean collides with an abandoned research vessel, a deadly virus is unleashed. Passengers must find a way to survive before the flesh eating disease consumes them all.

Directed by Kaare Andrews (Altitude and The ABCs of Death) penned by Jake Wade Wall (The Hitcher), the film stars Sean Astin (Lord of the Rings Trilogy), Currie Graham, Ryan Donowho, Brando Eaton and Jillian Murray.
