In just a matter of weeks now, all manner of bizarre creatures, madmen and otherwordly forces will descend upon New York City. And by that, I mean more than just on the average Friday night in the East Village.
It's the NYC Horror Film Festival, currently the biggest genre film festival in these United States, and it's coming just in time for Halloween, as it has every year since its inception in 2001. The festival is based at Tribeca Cinemas in lower Manhattan, but there will be screenings held throughout the city. No word yet on what films will be shown, as the call for submissions is still open.
In the past, the NYC festival has screened the director's cut of Hostel and the world premiere of the Masters of Horror, as well as past classics like Zombi 2 and The Return of the Living Dead. It has also honored such genre luminaries as Roger Corman, Tony Todd, Tom Savini and George Romero.
You can check out the official website here. Looks like any horror hounds within driving distance of Manhattan would do well to get themselves down there. And hey, if anybody from the festival is reading this, how about hookin' up ol' B-Sol with some press passes?
