This film redefined community - fandom - acceptance. There is literally no other film like it. The way that it has become what it has needed to be with every person in every generation for 45 years is amazing.

Spooky Movie is proud to have made The Rocky Horror Picture Show a regular part of our festival the last five years. And even though this year we are doing a virtual festival, we will find a way to celebrate with our "absent friends."

[TRAILER] Get The Hell Out [ENG SUB] Taiwan, 2020 - Horror Comedy

On the heels of its North American premiere at TIFF two weeks ago, the insane Taiwanese zombie film GET THE HELL OUT screens at the 15th annual Spooky Movie International Horror Film Festival - opening night!

" It’s KUNG FU HUSTLE meets SCOTT PILGRIM: a thrill ride that merges videogame progression with Looney Tunes antics (with bonus arterial blood spray, often to the face). The whole film is so gleefully obsessed with having a good time, being ridiculous and making audiences laugh, you can’t help but watch with a big grin on your face. GET THE HELL OUT is the cinematic equivalent of cotton candy, but that’s also its single greatest selling feature: if you want an adrenaline shot of gory slapstick entertainment right before a sugar crash, then this is the film for you. FOUR SKULLS" - Bloody Disgusting

Check out the trailer and save the dates for our first ever virtual festival: October 8-15.

The full schedule will drop next week!

BEASTMASTER RECLAIMED!

Today is the 38th anniversary of The Beastmaster with good news and bad news. The good first:

My Beastmaster co-writer Paul Pepperman and I have reclaimed the copyright to our screenplay. The Beastmaster remake anyone?

Bad news to follow:

THE BEASTMASTER IS LOST!

Upon reclaiming our copyright we received devastating news. The original camera negative (OCN) of The Beastmaster has been lost! Actors, artists, craftspeople and technicians put years of effort into production of our film and it appears to be gone! Especially depressing is that this was one of the late cinematographer John Alcott’s final films. John Alcott was Kubrick’s legendary cameraman of A Clockwork Orange, Barry Lyndon, The Shining and more. In honor of his memory we cannot let this stand!

So what can you do to help us find the negative? We are asking fans, fellow filmmakers and collectors to visit www.WhereIsTheBeastmaster.com for all clues we have on the missing Beastmaster negative.

If you have info please use the contact form to send us leads.

Thanks for another fantastic festival!!! So about 362 days until the next one?
So excited to see all the great films at this year's Spooky Movie! I just watched a great indie horror flick the other day called "Empathy, Inc" that I'm sure everyone here would also enjoy. It's a sci-fi thriller about a new body switching technology that turns out to have some pretty corrupt and criminal consequences. It was so intriguing that I just had to share it with y'all! The movie's out now on VOD in case anyone's interested, but I definitely encourage everyone to check it out
Good morning! I am honored and excited to have Theatre of Terror's feature anthology "The Theatre of Terror" screening on Friday, October 4th at 5:30 pm! I cannot wait to share our film with the great people of Spooky Movie FF and Maryland! Enjoy the trailer and get amped up about our throwback anthology!!
Please, Team Spooky Movie, PLEASE bring us this film! My life will not be complete if I don't get to experience this in an audience of howling horror hounds.
If you horror buffs need some new recommendations here, then look into this new indie horror film called "Soul to Keep". It is director David Allensworth sophomore film, and has been doing really well across the country at prestigious horror festivals like HorrorHound and Shriekfest. The film was shot in Upstate New York, with a group of college aged friends out on a weekend getaway at one of the friends family houses. Everything is perfectly fine, until the satanic ritual triangle is discovered in the basement. Definitely worth the watch!
Great year! Topped off with an excellent Q&A and signing with Greg Sestero. Makes the sore tailbone from many hours in theater seats well worth it 👍
Hope to see this year's schedule posted soon 🧛‍♂️🧟‍♂️🎃
Hey horror and film fans, The Night Eats The World is definitely a film to check out if you are a true horror fan. A zombie apocalypse is a matter that we may joke about now but Sam (Anders Danielsen Lie) faces this fear face to face. Watch Dominique Rocher's, the director, film for a promising and insane scare. You can purchase today on VOD! http://geni.us/NETW https://apple.co/2N0IIR5
Hey horror fans! Just saw international indie #TheNightEatsTheWorld and I was blown away! It's about the daily routines of a lone zombie apocalypse survivor in Paris. What I really enjoyed about this zombie movie as opposed to the countless others I've seen is that this one is more of a case study about this man's mental state and has intense, realistic suspense throughout that was never campy or corny. You can get it on VOD today and even see the trailer here if this piques your interest: http://bit.ly/2y8uiuZ
Hey movie fans! If you're looking for a great revenge film to watch check out #AgendaPayback! It's about a greedy businessman who gets his comeuppance. Really fun psychological thriller. It's out on DVD today:
