Hi-Death – USA, 2018

‘Five new tales to blow your mind!’

Hi-Death is a 2018 American horror anthology feature film and a follow-up to Hi-8 (2013). starring Fabiana Formica (Dellamorte Dellamore), Dilynn Fawn Harvey, Julia Vally, Antwoine Steele and Kate Durocher.

The segment writer/directors are:

  • Anthony Catanese … ‘Death Has A Conscience’ – Teenage Bloodsuckin’ BimbosSodomaniac
  • Amanda Payton … ‘Night Drop’ – The Crawler short
  • Tim Ritter … ‘Dealers of Death’ – Creep; Killing SpreeTruth or Dare? A Critical Madness and sequels; Day of the Reaper
  • Todd Sheets … ‘The Muse’ – Bonehill Road; Dreaming Purple Neon; House of Forbidden Secrets; Zombie Bloodbath; Goblin; et al
  • Brad Sykes … ‘Cold Read’ and  wraparound segment “Terror Tour” – The Pact; GothWitchcraft XII: In the Lair of the Serpent; Death FactoryCamp Blood (1999) and sequels
  • Josephina Sykes … ‘Cold Read’

When two young women take the “Terror Tour” through the underbelly of Hollywood, they are led into a bizarre world of unspeakable horror. Their first stop proves that “Death Has a Conscience”, but doesn’t spare the unlucky souls who stumble into his path. Next, a meeting with the “Dealers of Death” exposes the perils of collecting murder memorabilia. Then, it’s off to a quick “Night Drop”, where your next movie rental may be your last. An actress’ worst nightmare unfolds as she is forced to perform a terrifying “Cold Read”, and our Terror Tour comes to a disturbing end as we meet the ancient, seductive evil known as “The Muse”.

“Like Hi-8, Hi-Death places a strong emphasis on personal creativity and back to basics filmmaking.  Filmmakers once again shot on location using practical special effects. Unlike its predecessor, Hi-Death is shot entirely in HD, and the segments are longer in order to give each filmmaker a chance to explore more complex themes and storylines.

Filming locations:

  • Hollywood, California, USA
  • Kansas City, Missouri, USA
  • Lexington, Kentucky, USA
  • Trenton, New Jersey, USA
