Watch Highlight Videos from the Oct. 2016 HORROR Film Festival

Highlights from the Thursday October 27, 2016 event.

The HORROR/THRILLER OCTOBER 2016 HORROR/THRILLER Festival was a major success. The sold out crowd loved every single film.

The theme of the festival was “Illusions (or What Can’t Be Seen)”.

All of these films had a situation, antagonist, or plot device that was off camera. The mystery of what’s not seen to enhance the thrills and scare the audience more!

This was our 3rd Horror/Thriller Festival of 2016 and perhaps the best of the year. What made this festival so unique was that it was an international flair. Films from Norway, UK, France, USA and Germay. A showcase of horror from countries from all over the film.

One of our longest films of the year, O (29min. Norway), has the potential to be named the best overall film that played at the festival this year. It was the runaway winner of “Best Film” at this festival as it was a classic horror/thriller with an intense mysterious flair to it.

Moderator Amanda Lomonaco did an outstanding job facilitating the Q&A from the audience in the feedback portion of the festival. She is a HUGE fan of Horror and is also one of the festival’s curators and festival programmers.

Click the posters, learn about the films, and watch the Audience Feedback Videos.

– Matthew Toffolo
