So Cold the River
presented by Pigasus Pictures
Join us for a special screening of the chilling, SO COLD THE RIVER, adapted from NY Times bestselling author, Michael Koryta’s novel. Written and directed by Paul Shoulberg (THE GOOD CATHOLIC, MS. WHITE LIGHT) and produced by Bloomington’s own, Pigasus Pictures, the film was shot entirely in Southern Indiana at the iconic West Baden Springs Hotel. Cardinal Spirits will be in attendance to launch their new limited edition spirit, So Cold the Vodka. Guests are invited to join us for pre-show cocktails and stay for a Q&A with the filmmakers following the film.
Acclaimed documentary filmmaker Erica Shaw (Bethany Joy Lenz, “Dexter” ) is hired by Alyssa Bradford- Cohen (Alysia Reiner, “Orange is the New Black”) to profile her dying father-in-law, the enigmatic millionaire Campbell Bradford. Erica is presented with a substantial sum of money and a relic, an antique bottle filled with water from a local spring, one of the few clues connecting Bradford to the town he once dominated. While researching Bradford as a guest of a massive, opulent resort with a dark past, Erica meets unofficial town historian Anne McKinney (Tony Award-winner Deanna Dunagan), fanatical intern Kellyn (Katie Sarife, “Annabelle Comes Home”) and hotel maintenance worker Josiah (Andrew J. West, “The Walking Dead”), a descendant of Bradford’s who reveals the familial curse of mysterious deaths and suicides. Seemingly possessed by the relic, Erica begins drinking from the antique bottle, experiencing terrifying visions and, ultimately, unleashing unspeakable evil. Can Erica make her way through the darkness or is Campbell’s evil undercurrent too strong?
Doors open at 6pm for this General Admission event.
