The Two Gay Geeks received the Press Release below from our friend Miguel Rodriguez, Director, of Horrible Imaginings Film Festival in San Diego.
This years marks the Eighth installment of the Festival and we have been fortunate enough to sponsor the LGBT Film Block for several years now.
We are very much looking forward to the many events and films presented. We always learn something new and see some incredible Independent Films. Thanks to Miguel for his insight and curation of one of the Top Ten Film Festivals in the US.
So, without further comment, here is the Press Release:
San Diego’s Horrible Imaginings Film Festival Announces Terrifying Special Events and Guests!
Over 60 films, panels, and celebrations of horror, thrillers, suspense, and the fantastic!
SAN DIEGO – Aug. 6, 2017 — Horrible Imaginings Film Festival (September 8 – 10) has announced its full lineup of horror, thriller, and fantastic films and special events to San Diego’s Museum of Photographic Arts (MOPA) in the heart of historic Balboa Park. Dee Wallace (ET, Cujo, The Hills Have Eyes) will join over 50 other filmmakers, authors, and artists in the mission to spotlight new and exceptional voices in genre cinema and literature, ushering in the 2018 season of fear. A tribute screening and panel dedicated to the late horror auteur George Aaron Romero will cap the festivities on Sunday, September 10.
Feature films include Midnighters, helmed by The Walking Dead director Julius Ramsay and starring Starry Eyes’s Alex Essie; Red Christmas, a wild ride of an Ozploitation slasher starring genre legend Dee Wallace; 3 Dead Trick or Treaters, a dialogue-free Halloween anthology; and Happy Hunting, a high-octane survival horror film. Retro features also add color to the program, including a brand new 4K restoration of Mario Bava’s Giallo-birthing classic Blood and Black Lace. Over 60 short films spanning a variety of themes and scares will add spice to an already gripping horror event.
There will also be a panel of some of the genre’s most thrilling authors, including Bram Stoker Award Winner Dennis Ecthison, who was asked by Stephen King to be the film consultant/historian for Danse Macabre. The panel will be followed by readings from the authors of selected short works. The next panel will tribute the legendary George A. Romero, who was a major influence on the festival, and who passed away just this July.
