Pay A Visit To Nightmare City

Starting tonight in Los Angeles is the Nightmare City Horror Festival: 20 days, 73 events, 6 venues, 61 horror movies, 16 live shows, 6 LA film premieres, 10 artists, and 1 incredible black-light poster exhibit. Presented by The Cinefamily, Elijah Wood's Woodshed Horror Company and Cinespia - film screenings to be held at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. From the press release:

Nightmare City, at the intersection where horror, fantasy, science fiction and surrealism collide.

 

The Cinefamily, Cinespia and The Woodshed  have combined forces with other L.A. cultural organizations to present an ambitious schedule of events designed to terrorize horror buffs and tantalize non-traditional fans. Film premieres, concerts and live scores, rare 35-mm repertory screenings, magic and stagecraft, comedy and an exclusively curated black-light poster art show - in Nightmare City all these things come together in every possible permutation to create a unique festival which celebrates the cinema, music, and art of our darkest dreams.
