Friday Evening, October 6 Haunted House FearFest Film Festival 2023, Presented by HauntTV

COSTUMES ENCOURAGED! Join us for a spine-chilling and side-splitting evening of horror and comedy films from around the world including: The Unquiet Dead, written and directed by John Gray, mastermind behind the long-running hit CBS series Ghost Whisperer and the heart-pounding film, The Prowler by director Tanguy Pochoy. To lighten the mood, In Sickness & In Health, written and directed by Sarah Smick and SCAM, written and directed by Julie Sharbutt, promises to deliver laughs along with a side of suspense.

And our feature film, eVil Sublet, includes a panel discussion with the filmmaker and cast, written and directed by Allan Piper and featuring Sally Struthers, Jennifer Houston, and Charlie Tucker. A couple finds their dream apartment in New York’s East Village (AKA the eVil). Who cares if it’s haunted by a horde of murderous ghosts when the rent is cheap and it’s got an eat-in kitchen, right?

Mark your calendar for a night of fear and laughter that you won't want to miss!
