Events and News

These are things that have happened and these are things to come.

One might struggle with mixing past and future on one page, but we are not afraid of that. Time is fluid. Time is a superfluid. Or maybe one of those crazy fluids, like when you mix water and baking soda and then fill up a pool with the stuff and as long as you run, you can run across the surface of the pool, but if you stop, then you will sink in and drown in baking supplies. Time is like that.

Do not fear the past. Do not fear the future.

The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath on Weird Wednesday

Date

August 8, 2018

Details

Hellbender Media and Jeff Punk Rock Martin team up to bring you a 15th anniversary of our first feature film "The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath," based on a turn-of-the-century fantasy novel by H. P. Lovecraft.

In addition, the show will start off with a bonus short movie, the award-winning "Miasma."

The directors of both films will be there to introduce the movies and stick around afterward for a bit for a Q&A, autographs, or arcane benedictions.

Hellbender Media is a HUGE fan of "Weird Wednesday" at the Joy Cinema and Pub, and we are very glad to be hosting a show there. We hope you will join us and bring friends, because theaters are why movies are made!

The best part: admission is FREE!

(We encourage you to visit the snack bar of course, and our souvenir/merch table, which helps us offset our costs, but there is no cost for the ticket itself.)

Extras

The Tigard Joy is a splendid restored retro theater in Tigard, OR, featuring second-run movies as well as weekly forays into the obscure and eclectic.

Extras

In 2017, Edward's short script Dark Hour won Best Short Script at Shriekfest, and Festival Founder Denise Gossett asked if she could interview him on Shriekfest Radio. Being a writer and somewhat hermitty, he jumped at the chance. In a conversation ranging across multiple disciplines, Edward talks about what inspires him, what powers him, and how to keep from being distracted in a world designed to distract you. The hour flies by, and you'll wish for more from this hyperkinetic writer/filmmaker..
