The horror community has found a way to turn lemons into lemonade and that sweet nectar is named NIGHTSTREAM. Five film festivals, each strong in their own way, have combined like Voltron to become a sum greater than their parts. And it’s all virtual, allowing YOU to enjoy the best new genre cinema from the comfort of your couch.
Boston Underground, Brooklyn Horror, North Bend, Overlook, and Popcorn Frights Festivals combined are bringing you NIGHTSTREAM from October 8-11th (2020).
Beyond the feature films, this festival is PACKED tighter than a crypt with endless events. Dozens upon dozens of short films, a number of live podcasts (including one of my favorites — SWITCHBLADE SISTERS) and all kinds of after hours fun. The guest list includes Joe Dante, Ernest Dickerson, Axelle Carolyn, Mike Flanagan, Tom Holland, John Landis, William Malone, Tommy McLoughlin, Mary Harron, Mick Garris and Elijah Wood… to name a few. This isn’t the event of the season, but the event of the year.
This Halloween the only thing to fear is the fear of missing out, so grab your tickets now.
