Spooky Movie International Horror Film Festival

October 10–20

For nine nights in October, the seventh annual Spooky Movie International Horror Film Festival showcases the best in new horror cinema from around the world, and for the first time the entire festival (more than 50 shorts and features) takes place at AFI Silver!

Opening Night features a very dark horror/comedy which premiered at Sundance, EXCISION, from
 McLean, Virginia, native Richard Bates, Jr. (who will be in attendance). Highlights include Jennifer Lynch's controversial shocker CHAINED; the hysterical Canadian zombie comedy A LITTLE BIT ZOMBIE; the modern "horror masterpiece" RESOLUTION, which had its world premiere at Tribeca this spring; an intense German documentary on death and fantasy called ZERO KILLED; a document of the stage's definitive "spook show," PLAY DEAD, from Teller (of Penn and Teller); the world premieres of two locally produced movies: A SWEET AND VICIOUS BEAUTY and NINJAS VS. MONSTERS; and on Closing Night, Brazilian filmmaker Paulo Biscaia Filho in attendance for the U.S. premiere of his mind-bending film NERVO CRANIANO ZERO.

This year, the festival presents the first-ever Spooky Movie Local Filmmakers Summit, moderated by Eduardo Sanchez (THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT, LOVELY MOLLY). For more information, visit
