Toronto, ON, January 11 – Cult of Nightmares has released a festival poster featuring the faces of its ensemble cast that includes Steve Kasan (Lifechanger) and Damian Romeo (from the upcoming Netflix series Ginny & Georgia).
The indie feature dives into conspiracy territory, tackling the climate crisis and the growing wealth gap with a bizarre plot that involves the One Percent, nightmarish entities called The Others and a mass disappearance in 1906.
“Cult of Nightmares wonders what would happen if the public were lulled to sleep,” says filmmaker Dave Scott. “What if the media and our institutions systematically distracted us from protecting our very future?”
Cult of Nightmares hits the sci-fi/horror and fantasy festival circuit in 2020.
