HATE ETERNAL Joins Housecore Horror Film Festival Line-Up!!

Bad news, good news.

First, the bad news. Unfortunately, Suffocation will not be able to perform at the inaugural Housecore Horror Film Festival due to personal scheduling conflicts. The band is bummed and we are bummed, but we all understand that there are real-world priorities and we hope that we can bring Suffocation to HHFF in 2014.

Now, the good news.

We are beyond happy to announce that Philip Anselmo’s good friend Erik Rutan will be bringing in the brilliant death metal masters Hate Eternal to HHFF!!! Philip and Erik go back to their days when Philip brought out Erik and Morbid Angel out on a U.S. tour with Pantera, Slayer, and Motörhead.

Rutan said of the two tours he did with Pantera, “We toured together for 16 weeks. Those 16 weeks were life changing for me in so many ways. Being a guy who has just been content touring and recording records all these years, to have the opportunity to play arenas with one of the biggest and best metal bands out there was overwhelming, for I never thought that opportunity would ever happen yet it did. It changed my life forever.”

Hate Eternal has released several genre-defining death metal albums such as Conquering the ThroneKing Of All Kings, and Phoenix Among The Ashes.

Rutan also has a successful career as a highly sought-after producer and has worked with such top acts as Cannibal Corpse, HHFF’s own Goatwhore, Soilent Green, Madball, Agnostic Front, Vital Remains, Nile, Krisiun, Devourment, and many more.

We are sorry that Suffocation cannot make it, however, we are ecstatic to have Hate Eternal come on board HHFF.

Housecore Horror Film Festival to Host U.S. Premiere of THE PROFANE EXHIBIT!!

Philip Anselmo’s Housecore Horror Film Festival announces U.S. premiere of THE PROFANE EXHIBIT

Eagerly Anticipated Horror Anthology features 100+ Icons of Horror and Metal

Coffin Joe, Ruggero Deodato, Tony Todd, cEvin Key, Laurence Harvey, Bai Ling, Chris Vrenna, Mayhem, Clint Howard, and many more

AUSTIN, Texas—It’s less than six months before horror and metal collide in Central Texas at the inaugural Housecore Horror Film Festival – the ultimate 3-day, underground fan event celebrating the twisted line where horror films and heavy metal meet. Today, festival creators – legendary metal frontman Philip Anselmo and best-selling true crime author Corey Mitchell – announce that producers David Bond and Manda Manuel have personally selected to premiere their eagerly anticipated international horror anthology, The Profane Exhibit, in the United States at the Housecore Horror Film Festival.

Set in a club deep within the underbelly of Paris, The Profane Exhibit explores the inner workings of a secret, wicked society. At first it resembles an ordinary fetish or Goth nightclub, but hidden within the cavernous building are many rooms, one of which is known as “The Room of Souls,” a private gathering place of the world’s richest and most evil people. Their host is the elegant, yet frightening, Madame Sabatier. As the film unfolds, each member takes a turn and spins a true tale of their depravity for the amusement of the group.

The only thing more shocking than watching The Profane Exhibit is realizing that you may be responsible for it.

HHFF Welcomes Controversial Italian Gore-Mesiter Ruggero Deodato

PHILIP ANSELMO’SHOUSECORE™ HORROR FILM FESTIVAL
WELCOMES CONTROVERSIAL ITALIAN GORE-MEISTER RUGGERO DEODATO

The Man Who Inspired Eli Roth’s THE GREEN INFERNO Comes to Texas!

AUSTIN, TX – SEPTEMBER 10, 2013 – The Housecore™ Horror Film Festival (HHFF) is proud to announce the addition of ultra-controversial Italian cannibal king and horror master Ruggero Deodato.

Deodato, best known as the director of such horror classics as CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST and HOUSE ON THE EDGE OF THE PARK, will be on hand all weekend during HHFF to introduce both films and participate in Q&As afterwards. He will also join filmmakers José Morica Marins (AKA Coffin Joe) and Ryan Nicholson, composers Maurizio Guarini (Goblin), Chris Vrenna (Nine Inch Nails), and Scott Mitchell (AKA Daisy Berkowitz of Marilyn Manson), actress and producer Manda Manuel, and producer/story creator David Bond, on the red carpet for the U.S. premiere of the highly anticipated horror anthology THE PROFANE EXHIBIT.

Deodato is often recognized as the creator of the “found footage” genre of horror films with his then-innovative use of having his actors carry cameras while they traipsed around in the jungles of the Amazon for CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST. The mega-hit THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT is often cited for liberally borrowing from Deodato’s masterpiece.

Deodato’s career has also been rife with controversy. After the release of CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST, he was brought before a court on murder charges because prosecutors believed he had made a snuff film. He has also been the target of several animal rights groups who were appalled by his use of animal slaughter in the film.

Deodato’s work has had a profound impact on modern day horror with the likes of Eli Roth citing him as a major influence. Roth included Deodato in the role of a cannibal in his film, HOSTEL II (2007), and gives an overt nod to the legend with his first return to the director’s chair in this year’s THE GREEN INFERNO.

Deodato’s work has also had a direct influence on HHFF co-founder Philip Anselmo who recorded a song entitled “Cannibal Holocaust,” from the EP of the same name, for underground horror metal heads Necrophagia.

Ruggero Deodato joins the Unholy Triumvirate of Special Guest Directors Jörg Buttgereit (NEKROMANTIK, NEKROMANTIK 2), José Morica Marins, aka Coffin Joe (AT MIDNIGHT I’LL TAKE YOUR SOUL, THIS NIGHT I’LL POSSESS YOUR CORPSE), and Jim VanBebber (THE MANSON FAMILY, DEADBEAT AT DAWN), together all at once at HHFF. It will be the ultimate tribute to the true masters of the macabre underground.
