Shriekfest International Horror Film Festival has announced the full, expanded schedule for the ninth annual horror film festival, returning to Raleigh Studios Chaplin/Pickford/Fairbanks theatres, October 1-4, 2009.
Festival goers will once again enjoy the finest in independent cinema from around the globe, selected from hundreds of submissions that came in everywhere from London to New York; from Utah to Spain. From the opening night screening of the never before seen Maneater starring Dean Cain, to the shorts from Spain, United Kingdom, Canada, and finally to the World Premiere of Darin Scott’s “Dark House,” the 9th Annual Shriekfest International Horror Film Festival has worked hard to present a festival as diverse as the fans of the Los Angeles city itself.
American independent films are also well represented this year, on Friday, October 2nd – How To Be A Serial Killer, as well as Shellter and Dawning, both of which are screening on Saturday, October 3rd. We can’t leave out Surviving Evil starring Billy Zane, Evilution, and Evil Angel starring Ving Rhames.
Not to leave out the selection of short films. Movies like Howling Brat, Marooned?, 2095, Death In Charge, The Horribly Slow Murderer…, Dark Room Theater, Rekindled, and Fantasy.
The documentary, Nightmares In Red, White, And Blue examines the idea that horror films reflect the times and places in which they are made … narrated by horror icon Lance Henriksen and features exclusive interviews with legendary auteurs such as John Carpenter, George A. Romero, Joe Dante, Larry Cohen, and Roger Corman, as well as film historian John Kenneth Muir and Fangoria editor Tony Timpone.
Once again Shriekfest Film Festival exceeds at challenging the idea of what a horror film festival should screen, with eclectic selections (No-Do: The Beckoning), to science fiction (Enigma), comedy (Cold Calls), Gothic Fairytale (Spike), and even the bizarre (Lo).
Entrance is $8.00 per block, an All-Fest Pass, good for all four days of the festival, is now available on the website, for just $90.00 (this pass includes the opening night party).
All films are un-rated, and unless specifically noted no one under 17 will be admitted without a parent or guardian’s accompaniment or permission.
