Onyx the Fortuitous is struggling to find purpose with his soul-devouring side gig when he receives a coveted invitation to the mansion of his idol, Bartok the Great. He joins Bartok and his mysterious delegation to raise the spirit of an ancient demon for a once-in-a-lifetime ritual.
Andrew Bowser writes, directs, and stars as his viral internet character in "a handmade horror gem" (RogerEbert.com) in the spirit of nostalgic favorites like Beetlejuice, Pee-wee’s Big Adventure, and Ernest Scared Stupid.
Re-Animator stars Jeffrey Combs and Barbara Crampton reunite alongside Olivia Taylor Dudley (Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension), Rivkah Reyes (School of Rock), T.C. Carson (Final Destination 2), Melanie Chandra (Code Black), Arden Myrin (Mad TV), Ralph Ineson (The Witch), and Jason Marsden (Hocus Pocus).
"Get ready to be transported back in time with this hilarious throwback to '80s horror that will have you laughing and screaming in equal measure," says Brad Miska, Managing Director of Bloody Disgusting. "It's Elvira: Mistress of the Dark meets Fright Night, Beetlejuice, and even Ernest Scared Stupid with practical effects that will leave you speechless. If you're a fan of the viral sensation that is Onyx, you won't want to miss this uproariously fun adventure."
