There’s blood on the turkey in the holiday horror film coming next week.
Premiering on the Kings of Horror YouTube channel on another notable day, Friday the 13th of November (accompanied by a live chat with the filmmakers and cast), DERELICTS will play there for six weeks exclusively, and then arrive on multiple digital platforms Christmas Day, courtesy of Terror Films. Directed by Brett Glassberg from a script he wrote with Andre Evrenos and Clay Shirley (who also co-star), it stars Kelly Dealyn, David Lee Hess, Emily Ammon, Dalton Allen, Steve Uzzell, Lana Dietrich, Les Best and Sam Pleasant. The synopsis: “DERELICTS introduces us to a dysfunctional family on Thanksgiving Day. From the oversexed grandparents to the squabbling siblings and an emotionless husband who seems uninterested in touching his wife–all appears normal for this particular household. That is, until a gang of vicious vagrants invades their home, not only to cause havoc, pain and even death but also laying bare everyone’s faults and inhumanity while exposing some deeper family secrets along the way.”
