A press release was dropped in my lap that has me pretty excited. Cell Count, a science fiction horror flick from director Todd E. Freeman was picked up for digital distribution from Film Buff in November. Honestly, I knew nothing about Cell Count, but after checking out the website, old school poster, and trailer I can’t wait to see it. Check out the official press release and trailer below, and as always support independent horror cinema!
