About the Event
Since the early 2000s, Horror-Fest has prided itself on the showcasing of countless horror gems of yesteryear in a bid to not only keep the spirit of horror film history alive but to entertain audiences and to champion the big screen experience. Through the years, this long-running fest has brought titles like "The Exorcist," Psycho," "Jaws," "Dawn of the Dead," "Phantasm," "Frankenstein," "Dracula," "Halloween," "Poltergeist," "The Omen," "Evil Dead II," "Fright Night," "Creepshow," and "The Shining" back to the big screen in terrifying fashion. All in all, Horror-Fest has screened well over 60 influential horror properties throughout its near two decade run. In 2005, "The Halloween Edition of the Guerilla Filmmaking Challenge" was thrown into the mix. This quick turnaround storytelling competition would allow filmmakers of all ages and all skill sets the chance to put together short film projects using any resources available to them and to have a rare opportunity to experience their creations on the big screen with a live audience. Horror-Fest would eventually evolve even further and become a showcase for various film projects produced in Southern Utah and throughout the state. Now, the newly branded HorrorFest International will open its arms to genre storytellers from all over the world making for what will most certainly be the most fun you'll ever have being scared!
