The feature film “Cell Count” premiered on May 20th at the Fantaspoa Fantastic Film Festival and is now an Official Selection of this year’s Celluloid Screams Film Festival in the UK as well as the Montreal HorrorFest in Canada.
Celluloid Screams: Sheffield Horror Film Festival, October 26-28, is a three-day celebration of the best in classic and contemporary horror cinema. Founded in 2009, the festival has become a destination for horror fans seeking the very best the horror genre has to offer. In its short history, Celluloid Screams has premiered films such high-profile films as Paranormal Activity, Cold Sweat, Neighbor, I Sell The Dead, Inbred, Subconscious, The Revenant, Grace and Snowtown (to name but a few) and has an ongoing commitment to emerging genre talent. This year Cell Count is screening with some of the most exciting genre films in the world such as Before Dawn, Excision, and a special screening of the Cobal Cut of Clive Barker’s Night Breed.
Robert Nevitt, Festival Director/Head of Programming, at Celluloid Screams says “Cell Count encapsulates the body-horror of Cronenberg and the tone of early John Carpenter, whilst always maintaining a style and execution all of its own. Within minutes of viewing the film, we knew it would be perfect for Celluloid Screams.”
Writer/Director Todd E. Freeman says, “We are also super excited to announce that artist Tom Hodge, from The Dude Designs, will also be at the screening signing posters to giveaway at the screening at the festival. Tom’s amazing artwork has helped promote Cell Count and also has brought attention to the film that we would have not otherwise gotten. Having him on hand at the festival is going to be a great opportunity for fans to get his amazing Cell Count artwork signed as well as meet and talk with him. I’m very much looking forward to this festival… it’s really going to be a special one.”

In the upcoming year we are looking forward to the possibility of shooting the sequel to Cell Count which would obviously be a much bigger undertaking. With plans for toys, art, comic books all being a part of our plan to further the universe set forth by the original film Comic Cons all over the world will be a place that we look forward to meeting with genre fans of all mediums.” He continues, “We’ll be bringing a whole lot of posters to sign and giveaway at the festival as well. We are in debt to all of our fans around the world as well as their excitement about what we’ve done with this film as well as what we plan to do with its sequel. Time to give back some posters and tees of the amazing artwork that Tom Hodge at the Dude Designs created for the film.”
