2017 Halloween Film Festival Awards and Summary
The 2017 festival was a big success, screening an even 100 films of which 50 were festival first timers.
I like to include movies from every decade and I think this year’s crop accomplished that quite nicely.
Decade Number of Films Shown
Best First Festival Screening Movie
The restored Blu-Ray version brings this nearly forgotten gem back to life. Highlighted by engrossing performances from Bette Davis and Joan Crawford and a suspenseful story.
2017 did in fact turn out to be a monster filled year. New entries from the King Kong, Alien, Stephen King, and Mummy franchises filled the theaters. I was able to find 50 movies that I hadn’t seen before, with 24 of them made during the current decade. I wasn’t too surprised to end up with 3 recent chillers on the Honorable Mention list as it started out as 6 before I trimmed the list.
I hope everyone enjoyed this years movies. I’m going to take a short break to get caught up on non-horror movies. I’ve been studying screenwriting and I’m going to take some time to work on The House Of Stuff Movie … starting with a better title.
