DEAD BURGER WINNER OF AUDIENCE VOTE AWARD AT CRINGEFEST 2023!
Welcome to the Abomi-NATION!
We had the pleasure of being invited to the 518 Film Network's Cringefest 2023 film festival in April, and Dead Burger took home the audience vote award!
Dead Burger is a zany zombie comedy we released in 2017. A voodoo priest comes to a small town, and takes revenge when they dare to put a tomato on his cheeseburger! A small group of rednecks and stoners are the town's only hope! The full version of Dead Burger is available now on our YouTube!
2023 has been and continues to be a big year for Abomination Films! In January we started production on our latest film, a horror comedy Insurance. A young couple inherit a house and when paranormal events threaten their lives, they take matters into their own hands with unexpected results!
We welcomed some new cast and crew members into our group for this project, teaming up with Lakota Ruby-Eck with Tomb Pictures for the cinematography, Conor Grocki for sound engineering, and the wonderful on screen talents of Ryan Palmer and Isabella Varno as our leads. Production wrapped up in May, and post production is going well. We hope to share some trailers and teaser footage soon!
Check the link below our poster art to see a prank we pulled on our actors while filming! Who you gonna call?
Also in post production is our alien abduction Sci-fi film Gone! Based on some actual stories and local events to the northeast, Gone follows a young woman coming to terms with some strange experiences. At first she thought it was only nightmares, but then she awakes to find that she was missing for 3 days! Her search for answers may lead her out of this world...
Gone was shot in 2020 during the Covid 19 pandemic, and is finishing up it's post production process. We were happy to show a preview at Cringefest 2023, fortunately if you missed that showing, the trailer is available now!
We love making short form content as well as our larger projects, and we're happy to share these here!
About Abomination Films
Our Story Begins
In the late 90's a few friends in a small upstate New York high school decided to start playing with their halloween makeup and their father's cameras. While not many of those early works survived, that group of friends would grow up, grow apart, and then strangely keep coming back together as small town folk tend to do. Some new faces joined the circle of friends from both close and afar, and that led to the formal creation of Abomination Films in 2011.
We chose the name Abomination Films as we did not want to do solely horror based projects, and we wanted to be a mixture of different genres especially blending our horror with humor. We started with some short films and eventually a zombie comedy script took shape. In 2012 we went to Kickstarter for crowdfunding and were able to raise $5000 USD from our backers to buy the equipment and start production. 5 years of struggle and first time filmmakers learning the ropes the hard way and we were able to release and bring Dead Burger, our first zany zombie comedy to the big screen at the Madison Theater in Albany NY. We also were able to set up a vendor table at Rock and Shock 2017 to self release the film.
Since then, we have shot and are in the post production process of 2 larger projects and have made several shorts. We have also joined up with the 518 Film Network to help not only our projects, but to help create more and better art in the Capital District NY Film Industry.
Steve Rock is available to hire for practical effects and makeup as well as collaboration in a larger role for bigger projects, if you are interested in working with Steve or having Abomination Films as a whole consider your project or production, please reach out at AbominationFilms@gmail.com
We look forward to entertaining you.
