Shriekfest 2017 Announces Full Lineup


On tap right now we have the full slate of fear flicks heading to Los Angeles’ annual Shriekfest Film Festival, which is celebrating its 17th year! Read on for the goods!

From the Press Release:
SHRIEKFEST INTERNATIONAL HORROR/SCI-FI FILM FESTIVAL is thrilled to announce the full, expanded schedule for its SEVENTEENTH annual horror film festival, returning to Raleigh Studios Chaplin Theatre, October 5-8, 2017. Festival Director Denise Gossett says ,”We are so honored to once again to be at the same location we’ve been at for all 17 years! And we are also proud to announce the first annual Shriekfest Orlando on October 21st!”


Festival goers will once again enjoy the finest in independent cinema from around the globe, selected from submissions that came in everywhere from the United Kingdom to New York, from Texas to France. From our opening night screening of the CALIFORNIA PREMIERE of THE GLASS COFFIN to the SHORTS from Australia and the United Kingdom and finally to the WORLD PREMIERE of CANNIBALS & CARPET FITTERS, the U.S PREMIERE of FRACTURED, and the WEST COAST PREMIERE of HOSTILE, the 17th Annual Shriekfest Horror/Sci-fi 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. Friday, October 6th, brings MERCY CHRISTMAS as well as THE SHIFT. We can’t leave out THE BASEMENT (Mischa Barton), THE EVIL WITHIN (Sean Patrick Flanery, Michael Berryman), CURVATURE (Linda Hamilton, Glenn Morshower), and GNAW (Sally Kirkland).

Not to mention the fabulous selection of short films. Movies like TETHERED, CLASSIFIED, HIDDEN DAYLIGHT, MEGRIM, BLOOD SISTERS, WITHHELD, SECRETIONS, and the clever GHOSTED challenge viewers with provocative, well-crafted original stories.

Once again SHRIEKFEST exceeds at challenging the idea of what a horror film festival should screen, with eclectic selections (THE THINGS THEY LEFT BEHIND), science fiction (STILL HERE), comedy (HUMBUG), and even the disturbing (BURN).

Entrance to SHRIEKFEST Film Festival 2017 is $10.00 per block; and an All-Fest Pass, good for all four days of the festival, is now available on the website for just $120.00. This pass includes the opening night party and guaranteed entrance to all films/Q&A’s.

All films are unrated, and unless specifically noted, no one under 17 will be admitted without a parent or guardian’s accompaniment or permission.
