Zombie Popcorn is happy to announce that we are a Community Partner of CAAMFest 2016 and will be co-presenting a film. For the third time in a row Zombie Popcorn has been a Co-Presenter for a film at CAAMFest, we are very honor to play this role.
This year, we are co-presenting the Horror/Comedy, Crush the Skull, directed by Viet Nguyen. This is the U.S. Premiere of the film.
Crush the Skull
Viet Nguyen’s comedic thriller CRUSH THE SKULL is a roller coaster of unexpected twists and calculated turns that take a couple of master thieves on the ride of their lives. This SAW-like anecdote shares bits of humor and plenty of uncertainty as master thieves Ollie and Blair soon discover what awaits them in the home they broke into.
After witnessing a horrifying suicide and getting arrested, Ollie and Blair are forced to cash in a favor and are left with nothing. Defeated, they attempt to step away from crime, but are offered another chance at a big score. They reluctantly accept and go into business with Blair’s brother. What seems to be an easy job quickly escalates due to a sharp lack of experience and leads them straight into the lair of a deranged serial killer.
In trying to navigate the dark corridors and understand how to escape mysteriously locked rooms, dead ends and wrong turns, they eventually come to face to face with the killer and agree it’s better to be safe than sorry.
Screening Locations and Times
Two screenings are available.

What is CAAMFest?
CAAMFest is the creation of The Center for Asian American Media (CAAM).
The Center for Asian American Media (CAAM) is a non-profit organization dedicated to presenting stories that convey the richness and diversity of Asian American experiences to the broadest audience possible. We do this by funding, producing, distributing and exhibiting works in film, television and digital media.
CAAM presents CAAMFest (formerly the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival) every March, the nation’s largest showcase for new Asian American and Asian films, annually presenting approximately 130 works in San Francisco, Berkeley and San Jose. Since 1982, the festival has been an important launching point for Asian American independent filmmakers as well as a vital source for new Asian cinema.
