The inaugural FEARnyc horror film festival has just announced its full lineup for 2016 and it’s so insanely jam-packed we might just move to New York for the week.
The fest will take place at Cinema Village in NYC from October 21st to 27th, so it’s the ideal warm-up event pre-Halloween, for horror fans.
It will feature screenings of 65 new and classic horror movies, along with cast appearances, special events and, perhaps most pertinently, a tribute to maestro Wes Craven.
Highlights include screenings of stone-cold classics such as Night Of The Living Dead, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, A Nightmare On Elm Street and Hocus Pocus. A selection of brand-new movies will also feature, including Dead Awake, from Jeffrey Reddick (Final Destination) and Marcel Walz’s Blood Feast remake.
Those after a more, er, interactive experience can enjoy a screening of The Exorcist preceded by an audience seance, and another of Carpenter’s Halloween, with a Halloween party including goodie bags and games.
There will also be a special, FEARnyc award ceremony honouring the year’s best horror films, with jury participants including Robert Eggers (The Witch) and Joshua Rothkopf (film editor of Time Out New York).
You can check out the full list of flicks and festivities (and nab tickets) on the official site. But safe to say there’s only one place to be right before Halloween this year.
