Horrible Imaginings Film Festival Celebrates Ten Years

The Two Gay Geeks are very proud to bring you this press release about Horrible Imaginings Film Festival and their ten year anniversary.

We are very fond of Miguel Rodriguez, Founder and Curator of the festival. He helped us to understand horror and converted us into horror fans.

We have, in the past, supported Horrible Imaginings as sponsors and attended, even one year watching all 74 films shown that weekend.
