Waechter's film was produced by Gunpowder & Sky who have now handed over the reigns to its new horror brand Alter.

Alter in turn announced today with the release of the trailer that they will be a presenting sponsor at this year's festival.
ALTER, a new horror brand from global studio Gunpowder & Sky - today announced that it will be a presenting sponsor of this year’s Chicago’s Cinepocalypse Film Festival.
During the festival ALTER will host the world premiere of its new film DEADCON on June 15th at the Music Box Theatre, and is thrilled to release a brand new trailer. The festival also marks the beginning of ALTER’s year-long partnership with the Music Box Theatre.
Directed by Caryn Waecther, DEADCON tackles isolation in the age of social media and follows real-life YouTubers Lauren Elizabeth and Claudia Sulewski as they face vengeful ghosts even more horrifying than their devoted fans.
Following the world premiere in Chicago, DEADCON will continue a festival tour this summer and fall, with more dates to be announced.
