The second annual Bruce Campbell Horror Film Festival presented by Wizard World, running August 20 – 23 at the Muvico Theater in Rosemont, Illinois (9701 Bryn Mawr Ave., Rosemont), is proud to announce the addition of two more films to the already bursting schedule.
June, starring Casper Van Dien (Starship Troopers) and Kennedy Brice (The Walking Dead), tells the story of nine-year-old June (Brice), who has been shuffled in and out of foster homes for years. Though she tries to be good, no matter where she goes a trail of chaos and terror seems to follow. It’s only when June is sent to live with a new couple, Lily and Dave (Van Dien) that it looks as if things might finally work out. Except this innocent child with the face of an angel is possessed by an ancient, malevolent entity that has hijacked her soul. June enjoys its North American Premiere on Friday August 21.
On Sunday August 23, JeruZalem will hold its U.S. Premiere. Two American girls on vacation follow a mysterious and handsome anthropology student on a trip to Jerusalem. The party is cut short when the trio are caught in the middle of a biblical apocalypse. Trapped between the ancient walls of the holy city, the three travelers must survive long enough to find a way out as the fury of hell is unleashed upon them. JeruZalem is directed by Doron Paz and Yoav Paz, and stars Yael Grobglas, Yon Tumarkin and Danielle Jadelyn.
Films will screen at the Muvico Rosemont 18, 9701 Bryn Mawr Ave., mere blocks from the Wizard World convention hall. Screenings are free for Wizard World Comic Con Chicago badge-holders (space permitting), and a limited number of festival badges and single tickets are available for fans who are not registered for Wizard World.
