Halloween Update: Horror Films Galore, Shout-Out To Shriekfest

As I stated earlier the Nuarte one week run of "V/H/S starts this weekend, but it only one of many Horror films you can attend in LA. Yet, the Filmmakers, Writers and; Producers of V/H/S will be In Person Fri, Oct 5 at 7:00pm, 9:40pm and Midnight, and Sat, Oct 6 at 7:00 and 9:40pm!

Be sure to check out my new Horror Film section for this October on the right of the site for all your horror movie needs.


Shriekfest in it's 12th year brings some of the strangest and fun horror films out in LA. So many indie films, so little time. Please, check out their shorts, some of the silliest ones in horror. This festival gives so many people a chance to share of their work and horrify people, in years past it had some fun sci-fi, but this year is all murders and being stuck in places. Cheap tickets make it a must for the Horror weekend ahead!

Screenvision's presentation of Halloween will include an exclusive documentary short written and directed by Fangoria's Justin Beahm, "You Can't Kill The Bogeyman: 35 Years of Halloween," focusing on the undeniable impact the film, and series, has had on culture and the genre.

Lastly, well I'm waiting on Screamfest, but I'll have to post them when their schedule is up. Anyway every night in October the Cinefamily has

Nightmare City: A Video Nasties Celebration

Johnny Ryan, you stinker you were commissioned for this, it fits you perfect. At least I hope it's you, I got in trouble the last time I guessed who did the art for these flyers.

I can't even pick favs out of this collection, there's just too many weird ones even I haven't seen. These were all banned by England in the 80's it seems, making me want to watch them even more. There's a contest for this event too. Whoever, sits through all of them or at least the most of them is going to win prizes. Check the full info on the contest on the above link.

Okay, Extro sounds really cool a terribly strange looking rip of of E.T. see it Oct 12th. Have to say I'm surprised that Cannibal Holocaust ends the affair, though having a great story about how f-ed up average people can be given any power, I've seen much more disgusting films. It's more about disgusting then horror from that one.

So I'll have reminder on Screamfest and New Bev's in another update and any other films coming in for Halloween. Bwa-Hahahahahaha
