(Chicago — 17 August 2018) Cow Lamp Films announce the World Premiere of its newly acquired indie horror comedy feature film Skeletons in the Closet by Chicago Directors Tony Wash and B.A. Lewandowski.

Wash is known for The Rake and for writing and curating the long-standing web series World of Death for Lewandowski is known for High on the Hog and Olympia and is a Columbia College Alum (1998).

The World Premiere will be at The Davis Theater and presented in association with Windy City Horrorama, Chicago’s homegrown horror film festival. 80s horror fans will experience what they have been dying to see.



Skeletons in the Closet will screen twice on Friday, September 7th at 9:00pm and 11:30pm at The Davis Theater, 4614 N. Lincoln Ave. A Q&A with filmmakers and cast begins at 10:45pm.

Produced by Scotchworthy Productions, Inc., September Son Films, and The Line Film Co, Skeletons was shot in Chicago with many of the same local film crew that worked on Chance The Rapper’s horror comedy Slice, which will be released by A24 this year.

Skeletons in the Closet stars Scream Queen Ellie Church (High on the Hog/Amazon Hot Box) stage actor Adam Michaels (represented by Ravenswood’s Big Mouth Talent) and Elizabeth Stenholt (Peter Pan: A Musical Adventure at Navy Pier).

Skeletons in the Closet is a late-night, horror anthology television series featuring The Widow and her dead husband, Charlie. Each episode finds them providing hilarious commentary on a variety of B-movie horror films — some of which are terrifying!

Their number one fan, a precocious 11-year-old named Jamie, never misses an episode. With her parents out for the evening, Jamie sits down in front of the tube to devour the delectable terror, but her favorite Friday night freak show is constantly interrupted by her annoying new babysitter, Tina. If they can survive each other, they may be able to survive the night!

“Cow Lamp Films is excited to be distributing Skeletons in the Closet,” says Josh da Silva, Director of Acquisitions. “The film pays homage to the classic anthology series many of us grew up on and takes the genre in a new and exciting direction.”

Tickets can be purchased here.
