Actor Tyler Mane will screen his new film, Compound Fracture, May 26th in Portland, OR at the Hollywood Theatre. This will be one of the “one night only” stops on the Limited Meet & Greet Screening tour throughout the U.S. and Canada. Mane, known primarily for his acting career (his credits include, Michael Meyers in Rob Zombie’s Halloween & Halloween II, Troy, The Scorpion King, Joe Dirt, X-Men), co-wrote, produced and co-stars in this new thriller.
VIP ticket holders will have an exclusive pre-show meet-n-greet with Mane and other cast members, signing and a photo opportunity, view a behind the scenes featurette and will be automatically entered to win one of several prizes, including but not limited to props and costumes from the film Compound Fracture, a walk-on role in Mane’s next film, Penance Lane, or a screen-worn Michael Myers jumpsuit from the Rob Zombie cult-classic film, Halloween. All ticket holders are invited to stay for Q & A with Mane, co-producer/writer Renae Geerlings (previously the Editor in Chief at Top Cow Comics), and other available cast and crew immediately following the film.
Compound Fracture is a character-driven supernatural thriller in the vein of Rosemary’s Baby, Amityville Horror and The Legend of Hell House, revolving around a family, dealing with abuse, abandonment and dementia, that is stalked by vengeful spirits. The film culminates in a bloody, Battle Royale between the actors who played Michael Myers (Mane), Jason Vorhees (Derek Mears, Friday the 13th) and Ben Willis (Muse Watson, I Know What You Did Last Summer).
Because of the grass roots, word-of-mouth campaign that Mane Entertainment is employing, Mane and Geerlings are giving ticket buyers the option to make each event a one-of-a-kind personal experience.
“Taking this film on tour has been such a gratifying opportunity,” says Mane. “It’s risky to do it this way but this film isn’t what’s being pushed on the market right now. It’s more of a throwback horror plot– heavy on character and building to a body count.”
Geerlings says, “After 15 years in comic book editorial, I wanted to tell a story that was a little deeper than some of the more common horror fare. I didn’t just want to line up a bunch of teens and slash them up. So far, the response seems to be that other people are enjoying that choice.”
Shot in Los Angeles, Compound Fracture also stars Leslie Easterbrook (Devil’s Rejects), Todd Farmer (Jason X), Daniel Roebuck (John Dies at the End), Alex Saxon (The Fosters), Susan Angelo (Jack Reacher), and Renae Geerlings (Halloween II). Directed by Anthony J. Rickert-Epstein and produced by Mane’s production company, Mane Entertainment, Compound Fracture will screen in select cities across the country through the end of the year.
Compound Fracture synopsis:
Michael Wolffsen (Tyler Mane) receives an urgent phone call and takes his nephew and fiancee and makes the journey home to his only other living relative: his estranged, eccentric (and extremely paranoid) father, Gary (Muse Watson), who is obsessed with building an unassailable compound.
Once they arrive at Gary’s modest home, surrounded by acres and acres of grounds full of cameras and other security sensors, Michael is surprised and concerned to learn that his father is in the early stages of dementia. Over the course of the first 24 hours, through a string of odd occurrences, some of them almost unexplainable, Michael begins to believe that Gary is a danger to both himself and others.
But it turns out Gary isn’t as crazy as he seems. Will the family compound stronghold that was designed to save them be their everlasting tomb?
