As Halloween officially finds itself in our rearview mirror, I figured I’d revisit one of my favorite festivals to attend each year, which is the Spooky Movie International Horror Film Festival. Celebrating its ten year, the horror festival has become a staple event (especially for me, see Tweet) at AFI Silver-in recent years-during the month of October.

Boasting many impressive festival selections (i.e. TUCKER & DALE VS EVIL, THE BABADOOK, EXISTS, etc.) over its decade long run, this year was no different as there were some great selections to enjoy. As in prior years, founder/festival director, C.W. Prather, opened the event with a bang showing the much buzzed about THE FINAL GIRLS. In addition, like prior years, the festival featured the minds & talent behind some of the festival selections as well. For example, this year I fortunate enough to speak with Greg Lamberson & Paul McGinnis, the director and screenwriter, respectively, of KILLER RACK (check out the interview below).

Overall, for anyone who loves horror films, this festival is definitely worth a look!
