As Halloween draws ever close, what better way to spend an evening than having the shit scared out of you in a movie theater? Screamfest, in my opinion the best horror film festival out there, begins tomorrow in Hollywood. Screenings on tap include George Romero's brand new Diary of the Dead, Friday the 13th Part 3 in 3-D, the director's cut of Robert Rodriguez's Planet Terror, 30 Days of Night and the terrifically spooky The Signal. Screenings will be held at the Grauman's Chinese Mann 6 and tickets ($10) are currently on sale here.

Aside from the films listed above, there's also an assortment of independent features, shorts and special screenings. The 30 Days of Night screening will be attended by Josh Hartnett, Melissa George, Ben Foster, producers Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert, director David Slade, and Steve Niles and Ben Templesmith, authors of the graphic novel on which the film is based. There will also be a Q&A following the Saturday screening of Friday the 13th with Tracie Savage, Paul Kratka, Richard Brooker, Larry Zerner, David Katims and Harry Manfredini.

The full schedule is after the jump!
