Upcoming Broadcasts

Award-winning filmmaker David Spaltro returns to Movie Addict Headquarters for a discussion of In the Dark, his new horror film about demonic possession. Spaltro calls In the Dark his lovingly bloody valentine to the inspirational works of Stephen King, John Carpenter and The Exorcist. His movie combines both the appeal of the thrills and chills that is a staple of the horror genre as well as a strong, original story headed by a female cast of some of the most talented actresses in New York City. The World Premiere for this scary offering is scheduled on October 15 at the Tallgrass Film Festival in Wichita, Kansas. Previously, Spaltro wrote, directed, produced and edited the feature films …Around and Things I Don't Understand, which screened in over 45 film festivals and won 18 Best Feature awards as well as a host of acting, writing, and directing honors. Spaltro is now writing/directing an adaptation of Gothic horror novelist Steven Peck's A Short Stay in Hell, as well as writing-directing-producing Wake Up in New York, the final chapter of his NYC Valentine Trilogy through his company Wandering/Cut Films.
