TRAPPED ASHES (Cunningham/Dante/Gaeta/Hellman/Russell)
USA/Japan/Canada - World Premiere

Taking cues from old anthology fright flicks like THE HOUSE THAT DRIPPED BLOOD, TRAPPED ASHES brings together five directors for a delirious and creepy collection of tales. After seven strangers accept an invitation to visit a Hollywood studio lot, they find themselves trapped inside a house built as a set for a notorious horror film. In order to escape, they must share their most petrifying personal stories to unlock the exit. Using this narrative thread the five imaginative directors - Joe Dante (GREMLINS), Ken Russell (TOMMY), Sean Cunningham (FRIDAY THE 13TH), Monte Hellman (TWO-LANE BLACKTOP), and John Gaeta (visual effects supervisor for THE MATRIX series) - present stories which are shocking, seductive and surreal.
