LA-area fans: Trapped Ashes premieres this week!

If you're in the Los Angeles area, you might be interested to know that the horror anthology film, Trapped Ashes, will premiere this Thursday, August 2 at 8:00 PM at the Egyptian Theater, as part of the 7th Festival of Fantasy, Horror & Science-Fiction. It will then be screened for the next six nights at 7:30pm.

Here's what the director of Tahmoh's segment, "Stanley's Girlfriend," had to say about it to the LA Times:

"'Stanley's Girlfriend,' " offers Hellman, is "the kind of horror movie that I like the best. It's really the least horror of any of the stories. It's there, but very subtle. It's hair on the back of your neck rising. When I do horror, I treat it as reality. The supernatural elements the audience can take or leave. I find a realistic way to look at it."

Here's the official movie description:
TRAPPED ASHES, 2006, Lions Gate, 105 min. Seven strangers are trapped inside an infamous "House of Horrors" during a Hollywood movie studio tour and forced to tell their most terrifying personal stories in order to get out alive.
A discusion will follow the August 2nd premiere with writer/producer Dennis Bartok, directors Monte Hellman, Sean Cunningham, actors John Saxon, Scott Lowell, Rachel Veltri, producers Yuko Yoshikawa and Yoshifumi Hosoya, and production designer Robb Wilson King.
