Free FANGORIA Premiere Screening for “CONTRACTED: PHASE II” Infects NYC on 09/01!


The virus is spreading, and FANGORIA has the cure—free tickets to see the scary and gruesome sequel CONTRACTED: PHASE II in the Big Apple! FANGORIA will host a FREE screening of the latest IFC Midnight flick 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). Directed by Josh Forbes from a script by Craig Walendziak, the follow-up film begins at the exact moment where the original CONTRACTED ended (which fans can catch up with on Netflix Instant). The screening marks PHASE II’s New York premiere, and FANGO’s Tony Timpone will be hosting the event.

For those unfamiliar, here’s the official synopsis and teaser trailer…

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!

The FANGO screening of CONTRACTED: PHASE II is a free show; to obtain tickets, send an e-mail to fangoriascreening@gmail.com. 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. Seating is not guaranteed, however, and this screening is expected to be at full capacity.
