One of the film festivals I became immediately impressed with when I moved to Los Angeles was the Shriekfest Film Festival. Being unfamiliar with a lot of the more genre-focused festivals, I found Shriekfest and festival founder Denise Gossett’s passion for supporting independent filmmaking refreshing amidst a city filled with people who generally are motivated by their own selfishness.
It's that time once again! Another one of our favorite film festivals, Shriekfest 2010, has unveiled its first round of films for you lovers of indie terror out there, and we got the scoop on what to expect!
As you may recall, this coming February is "Women in Horror Month", and FEARnet is kicking it off a few days early with the debut episode of its Tea Party Macabre video series. The premise is that they invited some of their favorite women of horror out to tea and let the cameras roll. Included is one of our favorite women in horror, Dread Central's own horrorchick, Heather Wixson.
