Las Cruces filmmaker Ryan Rox will premiere his short film, “Quiet Hours,” at 5 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 28 at the Fountain Theatre, 2469 Calle de Guadalupe on the historic plaza in Mesilla.
Tickets are $10.
Before the screening, viewers will see a teaser trailer of Rox’s upcoming short film, "That Tingling Sensation," Rox said, as well as the short erotic horror film “The Naked Eye,” which he said is written and directed by queer filmmaker and Las Cruces local Luca Silver.
After the screening, Rox will be joined for a question-and-answer session about the film with fellow cast members Nora Brown, Nick Check, Jessica N. Jimenez, Montelius Valenzuela, Cabe Tejeda, Valerie Santos and Tuesday Knight.
“’Quiet Hours’ is a queer horror short film inspired by ‘90s horror classics such as ‘’Scream’ and ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer,’” said Rox, 30, who wrote, produced and directed the film.
The 30-minute film won a bronze award for best New Mexico short in the 2022 Albuquerque Mindfield Film Festival earlier this year, Rox said.
The film was shot entirely in Las Cruces last October. It contains adult language and situations.
