“CONTRACTED: PHASE II” Scribe joins FANGO’s Free NYC Screening!


After a summer of excellent free horror screenings presented by FANGORIA, it’s fitting that one of our last screenings of the season be our most anticipated yet! That’s right: IFC Midnight and FANGORIA are teaming up to give CONTRACTED: PHASE II its NYC premiere for free on Tuesday, September 1 at 7:45 p.m. at New York City’s IFC Center (323 Sixth Avenue at 3rd Street; 212-924-7771). And if that wasn’t enough of a reason for fright fans to come out, FANGORIA can know confirm that CONTRACTED: PHASE II writer Craig Walendziak will in fact be in attendance and taking part in a Q&A moderated by FANGO’s Editor Emeritus Tony Timpone!

For those unfamiliar, here’s the official synopsis and teaser trailer for Josh Forbes’ CONTRACTED: PHASE II…

After CONTRACTED unleashed the world’s most horrifying virus, this sequel picks up the story as newly infected Riley (returning actor Matt Mercer) races against time to contain the outbreak, even as it ravages his own body. As he digs deeper into its origins, Riley attracts the attention of a detective (Marianna Palka) who doubts his innocence, and BJ (Morgan Peter Brown of ABSENTIA) himself, who holds the key to the virus—and perhaps the destruction of mankind as we know it, leading to a blood-soaked finale you have to see to believe. Hang on to your barf bags, buckle up and get ready for the genre ride of the year!

Remember: even though FANGO screening of CONTRACTED: PHASE II is a free show, you must send an e-mail to fangoriascreening@gmail.com to obtain tickets and you must list “CONTRACTED” as your subject line. Offer is good for you and one guest. Names will be checked at the door, so tell us your full name in the email. Offer is first come, first served, and we will confirm your RSVP, but seating is not guaranteed, however, and this screening is expected to be at full capacity, so make sure to come early and come excited. This special screening comes courtesy of IFC Films, who will release CONTRACTED: PHASE II on its IFC Midnight label September 4, both in select theaters and on cable VOD / digital ( iTunes, Amazon, PlayStation, Xbox, etc).
