BlackBoxTV's Tony Valenzuela and Jarrett Sleeper direct and star in the upcoming world premiere of Villisca on June 7, 2016.
On a June evening 104 years ago, Josiah and Sarah Moore, along with their four children and two young guests, were ruthlessly murdered in their home in Villisca, Iowa; the case remains unsolved to this day. In Tony E. Valenzuela's directorial debut, outcast high schoolers Caleb, Denny and Jess travel to the titular town intent on detecting paranormal activity at the home where the murders took place. After a brief daytime tour, they return late at night to explore the dark spirits trapped within the walls, at which point they find that the past is not exactly dead and buried. In a house full of bumps in the night, these three friends must grapple with malevolent forces, not only from this world and beyond, but also from within themselves.
