The HORROR/THRILLER APRIL 2017 FEEDBACK Film Festival gave our audiences simply the best of short comedy movies from around the world.

The theme of the festival was “ENTRAPMENT”.

Every film showcased was about a situation where the world was closing in on the characters.

The Horror/Thriller Festival is definitely a shift in tone in comparison to all of the other events we do. It’s a whole new crowd that shows up, as some of our regular attendees chose to skip the scary film night.

So the moderation Q&A with the audience is vastly different than the rest. Our resident “Horror/Thriller” moderator Amanda Lomonaco has a tough job – but she’s a fan first and LOVES this genre. Horror fans can get to the point quick and fast on their opinions of the films showcased.

There is the sense of ownership that goes on with the fans of horror. They are giving a piece of their lives (a major hobby) to this genre and in exchange they demand high quality in return. This is also true for the hardcore sports fan, wrestling fan, and comic book fan.

I can stack this lineup of terrific horror/thriller short films that we showcased at the April 2017 Festival with any other festival and short film lineup out there. These were 7 amazing shorts that the audience really loved. Just watch the feedback videos and hear what the crowd had to say about them.

Two more Horror/Thriller Festivals to come in 2017.

See you at the festivals.

AUDIENCE FEEDBACK VIDEO from the April 2017 Film Festival:

  MOVIE POSTERSTILL, 7min, UK, Horror/Thriller
Directed by Oliver Park

A woman is plagued by a masked, statuesque figure that never moves.

Director Statement: I have been writing horror since I was old enough to pick up a pen. I love the genre and am truly passionate about getting back to its terrifying roots in the vein of Hitchcock, Polanski and other masters. I want to focus on bringing back the haunting nature of ‘folk-tale’ and legend, and letting the audience use their own imagination as much as possible.
