Scared? You could be.
If you love scary movies, the people who make them and have some time to kill this weekend, head on over to Raleigh Studios on Melrose Ave. for the Sixth Annual Shriek Fest. From the official site:
Shriekfest is a festival dedicated to getting horror/thriller/scifi/fantasy filmmakers and screenwriters the recognition they deserve. What makes our festival unique is that we are free from many restrictions that other festivals may have...for instance, we are thrilled when your film has won in other festivals, we won't hold that against you by not allowing your film an entry possibility. The whole point of our festival is to help out the filmmakers by letting as many people see your film as possible (not by limiting when and where your film is shown). We just want to celebrate the art of filmmaking without all of the politics!
Shriekfest starts today and runs through the weekend. Tickets are $8.00 for a single program up to $100.00 for a festival pass. For more info, check out the site.
