POTEAU–Carl Albert State College film students will treat the community to a night of terror on Tuesday at the annual Cinemortis Student Horror Film Festival.
The event will begin at 7 p.m. in the Hamilton Auditorium on CASC’s Poteau campus and admission is free.
According to Marcus Blair, CASC Film Studies instructor, students in the college’s Film Studies department have been working more than a month producing these films, beginning with developing script ideas and casting actors.
This year’s theme is phobias, and each film will deal with a common fear such as germs, clowns, storms, hitchhikers, darkness and more. The movies are:
“Jerm-X,” directed by Brett Lampkin and Trevor Duke.
“A Storm to Die For,” directed by Breanna Hiegert and Keajon Guidry.
“The Sound of Silence,” directed by Donald Walker, Jonathan Everett, and Matt Scoggins.
“The films will be judged by a panel of judges, but the audience will choose a favorite as well,” Blair said.
Blair continued, “All of the Cinemortis films will be frightening and contain realistic special effects, therefore children will not be admitted. This is the eighth year we’ve had Cinemortis and the goal is always the same – to give our students a place to showcase their work. We know the community will appreciate what the students have accomplished.”
