A sneak preview of the supernatural thriller, “The Devil Frame” will be shown in Chicago on March 28 at the Davis Theater. The film represents a new generation of cutting-edge Chicago-based filmmakers who are committed to exploring deep themes for the vibrant horror community. “The Devil Frame” is the highly anticipated new release from director Rob Sepulveda, who directed the critically acclaimed short “Year of the Ox” in 2015.
The Devil Frame tells the chilling story of a soul-searching photographer Dean McCallin who encounters the practice of voodoo ceremony painting while on assignment in the Caribbean. He is drawn into the visceral artwork in a ritual he witnessed. The experience embeds itself in his psyche; his obsession grows and drives him further into the practice of “Chaos Magik”. Through his own artwork, he creates his own destiny, a path to demonization. A complete transformation occurs physically, mentally and artistically. The result is in the conjuring of entities never imagined; exploring the world between darkness and blackness.
International horror illusionist and award-winning actor Ron Fitzgerald (“Dark Realm,” “Magus”) stars as Ramone, the owner of an occult bookstore who becomes ensnared in the unfolding depths of discovery brought to him by his seemingly innocent customer Dean, portrayed by the film’s lead August Lysy (“Ghebbar Woods,” “The Fifth Kind”). Also featuring horror movie icon Vinnie Bilancio (“Werewolf in a Women’s Prison,” “Sorority House Massacre”) Angel Rosario, Jr. (“Path of Egress”) and introducing Kat Blackburn (“The Haven” web series).
