Mise En Scenesters Prepare For New Year With The Devil

Jan 16, 2014

It’s now 2014, and for some the devil will be coming to Chattanooga. Luckily not the literal devil, but a film called Here Comes the Devil, a movie  called “Delightfully creepy” by the LA Times.

Here Comes the Devil will have its Chattanooga premiere this Saturday at Barking Legs Theater. The Mise En Scenesters Film Club is responsible for the film’s screening.

Dacre Stoker is the great-grand-nephew of Dracula author Bram Stoker.  In this segment, Dacre discusses his famous ancestor's inspiration.  Was Vlad the Impaler really the inspiration for the world's most famous vampire?  Was one of Bram Stoker's brothers the inspiration for Van Helsing?

Chattanooga, Tennessee author Shane Berryhill and Waynesville, North Carolina artist James E. Lyle collaborated to create Game of Horror, a graphic novel described as "The Hunger Games meets classic monster cinema in an action-packed tale of terror."

In the story, an undead girl named Lily fights ghouls in a combat tournament, and the tale is meant as an allegory for human trafficking.  The creators are seeking Kickstarter funds to publish the graphic novel.
