ABOUT "INSOMNIAC THEATRE"
This isn't just a movie that we're trying to create but an event...An event that is designed to evoke and enhance all of your viewing pleasures by situating you in an arena of darkness that has been occupied and haunted by millions, the American Theater. While in this historical attraction, you will be introduced to twelve gruesome stories all jam packed into one terrifying and mind altering movie. Each story builds into the next, acting as puzzle pieces if you will, that when put together form an eerie and frieghtning picture that will push your imagination to the brink.
We don't just want to mail you a copy of a DVD, that's been done and it's rather boring. But instead we want to invite and/or bring to you "Insomniac Theatre". This is to be an outing that you dress for and bring along family and friends to. One that you are both terrified and elevated by. And one that will leave you sitting at a coffee shop for hours involved in heavy debate, rather than return home at the risk of being frightened and tortured by every nook and cranny present in your home.
This is not for the faint of heart and in this case the early bird does not catch the worm. This presentation is for all our Insomniacs out there whom want to put their senses and paranoias to the test. All showings of this film, will be presented at the latest of hours, nothing to be presented before Midnight.
INSPIRATION BEHIND "INSOMNIAC THEATRE"
With regards to the "Insomniac Theatre", this is a project that comes directly from the chaotic, demonic, and twisted mind of Director/Writer Andretti Dante. He has returned to his roots and dug in deep in order to bring you something both original and terrifying with no holds bars or censorships. This is a journey and a rare opportunity to be taken on a ride that will introduce you to the true meaning of terror. The classic nature of suspense and horror is being re-opened as "Insomniac Theatre" draws it's main inspiration from the original "Twilight Zone" series. Think of this as the modern day "Twilight Zone" with a splash of Andretti Dante's madness.
THE MIND BEHIND "INSOMNIAC THEATRE"
ANDRETTI DANTE was born in San Antonio, TX he first found his love for films when he saw the film Back To The Future at the early age of 7 years old. After graduating high school Andretti would later attend film school at Full Sail University in Orlando, FL. After graduation Andretti went on to work for Fox News in San Antonio, TX where he became a key member in the San Antonio Spurs pre-game and post game shows, as well as directed numerous local commercials. Andretti left Fox News to focus more on film making, where he then moved to Southern California and has been leaving a mark on the Indie film community and has been entertaining the masses through his making of numerous short films, dozens of music videos, and a few feature films.
