  • Freakshow Horror Film Festival

Is it just us or are the big names in streaming really being wronged with their horror offerings this year? Few classics to find and what is available is often buried under their own original lineup. Where’s the scare for those of us who don’t have the cash to add niche streamers to our monthly spending?

Turns out it’s in a chain movie theater near the airport. The Freakshow Horror Film Festival is a delightfully curated horror festival that takes place in the epic theaters of Lee Vista over Halloween weekend. Local films, short films and future genre classics are on offer, including The silver stream, The Girl in the Cabin 13 and the Taiwanese monsters movie Abyssal Spider. Friday and Saturday festivities include a pre-meeting with a filmmaker at Marlow’s Tavern and an after-party at Rock & Brews.

The festival ends Sunday afternoon with an awards ceremony. Day passes cost $ 20 for Friday and $ 40 for Sunday. Three-day passes are a $ 60 offer. More information is available on the Freakshow website.
