PHILAMOCA OFFERS A DECEMBER TO DISMEMBER WITH PHILLY PREMIERE OF FESTIVAL HIT THE DEMON'S ROOK
December is traditionally a time we turn to looking for the good in man, but PhilaMOCA will be doing the exact opposite as it conjures dark spirits on Thursday, December 5, 2013, when it hosts the Philadelphia premiere of James Sizemore's occult horror masterpiece THE DEMON'S ROOK.
An official selection in renowned international film festivals like Fantasia and Sitges, THE DEMON'S ROOK is the story of a young man who, in his attempts to flee three malevolent demons, inadvertently draws evil into his world through an interdimensional portal, unleashing a literal Hell on Earth. Not just another clever horror film, THE DEMON'S ROOK is both a tribute to and an affirmation of the splatter-filled mayhem of the 1970s and 1980s as it forgoes the campy CGI of most modern films for the kind of practical effects that recall John Carpenter's THE THING (1982) and Ridley Scott's fantasy epic LEGEND (1985).
James Sizemore is a rising talent in not only world of independent filmmaking but also music, art and the occult. Performing under the moniker of Lord Loup'Rah Garomore as a musician, Sizemore has independently released a number of albums in addition to assisting in composing music for THE DEMON'S ROOK. Sizemore was able to synthesize these multiple talents and interests into brilliant one burst of creative expression with THE DEMON'S ROOK, his feature film.
ABOUT PHILAMOCA: Housed in the historic Finney & Son building, a former showcase for tombstones and mausoleums that dates back to 1865, the Philadelphia Mausoleum of Contemporary Art (PhilaMOCA) is a Philadelphia-based art-space that exists to celebrate that intersection of art and culture where weird blossoms. In the past, it has been home to exhibits showcasing various forms of subversive art, screenings highlighting underground films, and other popular, if unusual forms of entertainment that range from burlesque to improvised theater. PhilaMOCA hosts 300+ events a year in its attempt to supply Philadelphia with a thriving alternative culture.
