Legendary actress, singer, and author Adrienne Barbeau is set to headline a special conversation about her career at the upcoming HollyShorts monthly screening series on Wednesday, February 28 at 7 PM at the TCL Chinese Theater. Moderated by Yulissa Morales-Silva, Vice President of U.S. Distribution at Epic Pictures (parent company to Dread Central), the evening will also be a showcase of two horror short films, both starring Barbeau: Alice Jacobs Is Dead, directed by Alex Horowitz, and  Oddities, directed by Tyler Savage.

Alice Jacobs Is Dead stars John La Zar and Adrienne Barbeau. It follows a scientist racing to find the cure to a horrific virus before it turns his wife into something monstrous. 

Oddities stars Adrienne Barbeau, Ariela Barer, and Logan Miller. It follows a drugged-out duo’s attempt to rob an antique store and their realization that the older woman running the shop isn’t as defenseless as she seems. 

The evening will also feature a variety of additional short films as part of the HollyShorts program.

Tickets to the event are available here.

Legendary actress, singer, and the author of five books, Adrienne Barbeau is a horror icon, starring in genre classics such as John Carpenter’s The Fog and Escape From New York, George Romero’s Creepshow, and Wes Craven’s Swamp Thing.
