Vampire clowns, bumbling security guards, ex-Italian mob members, perverted boss, and hot, lesbian reporters.
In a spectacular homage to campy horror, The Night Watchmen follows an ex-heavy metal rocker turned security guard on his first day on the job, but is soon caught in a vampire uprising that threatens to take over his city. Moral of the story DO NOT accept a ton of weed in exchange for holding a mystery coffin and DO NOT underestimate the power of an Italian sub. A rancorous gore-fest mimicking b-movies and double features, The Night Watchmen features the return of Mitch Altieri (A Beginner’s Guide to Snuff, Cinequest 2016 and The Hamiltons, Cinequest 2006) to the film festival. Featuring as much blood as there are laughs, The Night Watchmen will take you on a nostalgic thrill ride you will never be able to forget. – Breno Pereia
