LA Horror Fest

The LA Horror Fest was founded to celebrate our passion for horror films and recognize the winning combination of talent required to make terrific horror movies that straight up scare the bejeezuzs out of us! The LA Horror Fest is unique insofar as delivering the perfect fusion of film festival and convention. While the focus of the The LA Horror Fest will center around exhibiting creative genius on the silver screen, we also aim to create a hip and entertaining environment for enjoying the Barnsdall Art Park and time between screenings. There will be vendor tables, celebrity guests making out autographs, swag and giveaways, music/ bands/ DJ’s, media buzz, alcohol and food. Our Friday night spectacular will be a midnight screening of a cult classic favorite (TBD) with special guest appearances by the filmmaker and cast. Saturday night will boast the awards ceremony followed by a VIP party. One great weekend, jam packed with film and lots more!

Charlotte Horror Fest

The Charlotte Horror Fest is horror and sci-Fi film festival taking place every October in Charlotte, North Carolina. The event is produced by Indie Film Force, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2005, which also produces the already established Charlotte Film Festival

The mission of the Charlotte Horror Fest is to bring filmmakers and film fans together for a celebration of the Horror and Sci-Fi genres. To create an event where the films can receive a quality projection that is on par with the dedication and perseverance that went into making them and fans can experience the works the way the filmmakers envisioned it. Along the way, we encourage fans to jump in and participate in whatever creative way feels right, so that the recipe will be complete and we’ll be able to fulfill what is the ultimate goal of the festival: to create and celebrate community.

Now, we are filmmakers too. So we understand that excellence is usually more easily noticed if it’s formally awarded. With that in mind, the 2012 Charlotte Horror Fest will present the following 17 awards:

  • Best Feature
  • Best Short
  • Best Student Film
  • Best Short Screenplay
  • Best Horror Film Trailer

Inhabitant

Director: James Howarth.

Mark is running from a past plagued by disturbing schizophrenic episodes… three women who each hold a different key to his freedom from torment… and a dark and mysterious being who threatens his entire reality, and worst yet – all the people in it. Mark mistakenly imagines that his release from a mental hospital represents a fresh start. He soon discovers, instead, that his struggles with schizophrenia are about to get much, much worse. As his mind spirals out of control, Mark suspects his sexy roommate and his best friend of conspiring to have him re-committed, and begins to insist that his condition is a result of an implant that puts him in communication with a sinister extraterrestrial race. The one person who can save him from losing the battle against his mental illness is Abby – a beautiful psychologist with a few demons of her own. But when Mark’s mysterious tormentor offers him a murderous solution to all his problems, can Abby stop him from succumbing to what may only be a terrifying figment of his imagination… before it’s too late?
