/Film Has Your Tickets To See A Dungeon Screening Of ‘The Divide’ at Comic-Con With Free Mondo Print
Posted on Saturday, July 16th, 2011 by Germain Lussier
While most people clamor for one or two free movie screenings every few weeks (or months, or years depending on where you live) at San Diego Comic-Con, you’ll be shooing them off like flies. Every night, multiple films screen for free and the big decision is, “How do I decide which film to go to?” The dilemma, then, for the studios is, “How do we make our screening stand out?” Anchor Bay Films has the right idea with this special screening of The Divide, directed by Xavier Gens (Hitman, Frontier(s)) and starring Michael Biehn, Rosanna Arquette, Milo Ventimiglia and Peter Stormare.
Set in a bunker-like Manhattan basement immediately following a nuclear attack, The Divide is the violent and disturbing story of what happens when you’re stuck in a enclosed space with strangers and the end of the world is right outside your door. Think Saw meets Fallout 3. If it sounds claustrophobic, then you’re getting the idea. Now imagine seeing The Divide not in a movie theater but in a similar dark, dank basement with a very small audience. That’s what they’re doing at Comic-Con. You’ll get to see a screening of the film in this scary setting, attend a cocktail reception (free food and drinks!) and then get a free, limited edition Mondo poster for the movie by famed comic book artist Jock (The Losers.)

Here’s the official plot description of The Divide:
In this graphic and violent, post-apocalyptic thriller, nine strangers—all tenants of a New York high rise apartment—escape a nuclear attack by hiding out in the building’s bunker-like basement. Trapped for days underground with no hope for rescue, and only unspeakable horrors awaiting them on the other side of the bunker door, the group begins to descend into madness, each turning on one another with physical and psycho-sexual torment. As supplies dwindle, and tensions flare, and they grow increasingly unhinged by their close quarters and hopelessness, each act against one another becomes more depraved than the next. While everyone in the bunker allows themselves to be overcome by desperation and lose their humanity, one survivor holds onto a thin chance for escape even with no promise of salvation on the outside.
Enter below and good luck.
