The Brooklyn Horror Film Fest Will Scare The Living Sh*t Out Of You

Brooklyn Horror Fest Poster 2017It’s that time of year, folks. There’s a chill in the air, and down your spine. Trees become skeletal, the ground crunches underfoot, the moon comes out and the fog rolls in. It’s time to get freaky, and the Brooklyn Horror Film Fest can help you do just that. Taking place this year over the weekend of Friday October 13th through Sunday October 15th, we are lucky to have most of the screening venues in our ‘hood. Perfect for a date, or going it alone (if you dare). They’ll be presenting independent feature films and shorts from horror filmmakers from around the world, including some local to NYC. And, the fest will also be hosting an opening night party, panel discussions, Q&A’s with filmmakers, games, contests, merch tables, an award ceremony and a sendoff party after the final screening.

Badges are already sold out, but you can still get tickets to individual showings, from $13-$18 depending on the event. Below, we’ve listed the films that are being shown locally, but you should check their site for a full listing of films and events all over Brooklyn.
