Screening at VFF12: “108.1 FM Radio” and “End of the Road”

Our Friday evening program is a pair of thrillers, each playing suspensefully with murder and who’s really the villain. 

In 108.1 FM Radio, it’s either a driver, or the hitchhiker he picks up late one night, or neither.  Accompanied by a radio program bringing bad news, tensions rise between them:  is the radio right?  Should somebody get outta there before it’s too late?  Or is it just a false alarm?  Find out in this short film—the third by Italian filmmakers Angelo and Giuseppe Capasso, and a great companion piece to our feature.

End of the Road is a feature that ventures to remote Idaho for the filming of a reality show pilot about a haunted house.  As you might expect, tragedy strikes and the cast and crew find themselves struggling to figure out what’s going on, and how to survive.  Some big unexpected plot twists make this more than a typical thriller or horror movie.  Like the characters, we think we know what’s going on, but really don’t.

A terrific movie for fans of the genre, and of the many cast members who are film and TV veterans, including Doug Jones, Michael Dorn, Robert Picardo, Zack Ward, Danielle James, Davina Joy, and Todd Tucker. Directed by first timer J.P. Pierce, from a script by Monte M. Moore, it’s already won awards at several other festivals, and we’re proud to have it here.

Screening Friday evening (11/9) at 9:30.
