RUN TIME 82 min
It is Halloween night in the town of Waterford, the so-called Pumpkin Capital of the World. Alone at home, teenager Dora Vogel is about to have a very long night. Free to roam undetected among the small town's trick-or-treaters, a group of masked demonic beings knock on unsuspecting Dora's door. Before long, she is cut off from the outside world, under siege in her isolated home for reasons she does not understand. Alone in the dark, Dora will need to defend both her body and her soul from the relentless evil beings known as hellions.
Twenty-three years after screening Highway 61 at the Sundance Film Festival, director Bruce McDonald returns to the Park City at Midnight section with a bag full of devilish tricks guaranteed to leave our late-night crowd in screams.
