ABSENT (starring Derek Houck) selected for two film festivals

13 Sep 2008

“ABSENT,” a horror short I acted in at the end of last year, has been accepted into two film festivals!

“ABSENT” will be premiering at the Cinema City International Film Festival on Wednesday, October 1st. All screenings for the festival are held at the AMC Theaters in the Universal Citywalk and admission is free. “ABSENT” will be shown in the 2:40pm block of shorts.

“ABSENT” has also been accepted into the Terror Film Festival in Philadelphia, PA and will be shown as part of the “Spongey Shorts” at 2:45pm on “Splatter Saturday,” October 25th.

“ABSENT” is a 20 minute horror film directed by Aaron Mento. Two high school students return to the scene of a brutal classroom suicide, but soon realize that not all is what it seems, and before the night is over, more blood will be spilled.
