‘Tis the Season for Horror.

Los Angeles doesn’t just have one horror film festival throughout the year they have at least 9! Wow, who knew? I am in two of the bigger ones this weekend and next week: Shriekfest and Screamfest.

Horror is not my favorite genre to watch as I am a bit of a delicate hothouse flower and am easily terrified. My nervous system simply can not take it. I already grind my teeth, I already jump/shriek if I bump into someone when I round a corner, and I already have a thrilling soundtrack playing in my head. Perhaps I should be on Xanax. But filming horror movies is FUN!

The first film is THE LAST LIGHT. It is a psychological thriller that scared me even while reading it. Andrew Hyatt wrote and directed this film. I saw THE FROZEN (also written and directed by Andrew) and I thought I was going to jump out of my skin. Andrew is a master at building tension. THE LAST LIGHT premieres at ShriekFest on Saturday Night, October 5. To learn more or to buy tickets click here shriekfest.com/schedule_2013

The next film is called BENEATH it is directed by Ben Ketai. Ben already has a fan club from movies like 30 DAYS OF NIGHT: DARK DAYS and the digital series CHOSEN. If you are claustrophobic and like being scared this film is for you! BENEATH premiers at ScreamFest this Tuesday night. BENEATH has the honor of opening the festival.

I have yet to see either of these films. So if you attend, you may not want to sit next to me. I’m rather a nuisance. Yes I will shout things at the screen, I will scream, and I will grab your arm and beg “Why am I here? Why am I watching this? Help me!”

Happy Horror Season,

Molly

    Molly:

    I guess we won’t be seeing you in the next “Zombie” or “Undead” movie or commercial.

    Never thought after the “Thriller” videos and the Michael Jackson era that the Zombies
    would ever come back. However, i guess the Undead has a way of doing that.

    Enjoy, with an eye over each shoulder and a steady walk, They could be gaining on you.
