Small town punk rockers THE BRAIN DEADS have their first out of town gig. But there are a few problems: The venue is deserted, the promoter is a creep, their bass player has gone missing, and the only kids in the audience appear to be bloodthirsty monsters from hell. It's gonna take a lot more than a few power chords and teenage angst to survive this night. NIGHT OF THE PUNKS is a love letter to 1980's splatterpunk cinema, echoing classics like "The Return of the Living Dead," "The Evil Dead" and "Night of the Demons."

STARRING: Luke Edwards, Aubrey Wood, Nick Mundy, Mike L. Kinshella, John Bobek, Dominic Deleo, Vic D. Vine.
