The Oceanside International Film Festival announces a special reunion screening of STEPHEN KING’S THINNER that will take place at The Star Theatre in Downtown Oceanside, CA on Saturday, June 17th with doors opening at 4:30pm and the screening commencing at 5:30pm.

Set to appear in-person are Director Tom Holland(Child’s Play, Fright Night), Stars Robert John Burke & Lucinda Jenney, as well as makeup & effects artist Vincent J. Guastini with more mysterious guests are to be announced.
In STEPHEN KING’S THINNER, an obese lawyer (Billy Halek, played by Robert John Burke) finds himself growing “Thinner” when a mysterious carney (Michael Constantine) places a hex on him. Now the lawyer must call upon his friends in organized crime (Joe Mantegna) to help persuade the old man to lift the curse. Time is running out for the desperate lawyer as he draws closer to his own death & grows ever thinner by the day. The Event will be preceded by a lobby reception, complete with a meet & greet for ticketed attendees and a Red Carpet hosted by Julia Marchese and Teri Gamble of the Horror Movie Survival Guide podcast.
