L.A.’s annual SHRIEKFEST announces 2012 line-up

In it’s 12th year, the Los Angeles based Shriekfest film festival has announced which films will be premiered at this years event. Check out the full list below.

The fest is returning to Raleigh Studios Chaplin theatres, October 4-7th.  Dig the full press release.

Festival goers will once again enjoy the finest in independent cinema from around the globe, selected from submissions that came in everywhere from London to New York; from Utah to Denmark. From our opening night screening of THE EMPLOYER, featuring Malcolm McDowell and Billy Zane, to the shorts from Australia, Denmark, United Kingdom, Italy, Germany, Mexico, and finally to the Shriekfest Premiere of Scooter Downey’s IT’S IN THE BLOOD, starring Lance Henriksen! The 12th Annual Shriekfest Horror/SciFi Film Festival has worked hard to present a festival as diverse as the fans of the Los Angeles city itself.

American independent films are also well represented this year, on Friday, October 5th – DEVOURED, as well as MIMESIS starring Sid Haig and Courtney Gaines and THE HOUSE WITH 100 EYES, both of which are screening on Saturday, October 6th. We can’t leave out NAILBITER, REVENANT, FOUND IN TIME, MUIRHOUSE, and LAST KIND WORDS.

Not to leave out our fabulous selection of short films. Movies like THE FACE, REQUIEM POR UN (NO) MUERTO, SURVIVOR TYPE, NIGHT OF THE DEVIL, DISPATCH and the stunning CRYO challenge the viewers with provocative, well crafted original stories.

Once again SHRIEKFEST Film Festival exceeds at challenging the idea of what a horror film festival should screen, with eclectic selections (FORTUNE FADED), to science fiction (A LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS), comedy (THE DUMP), and even the bizarre (STAY AT HOME DAD).
