If you live in New York, there’s a nice thing to do to get in the Halloween mood.
FEARnyc film festival announced that its inaugural event will feature horror movie classics like Night of the Living Dead, Psycho, The Exorcist and Halloween along with cult shockers like Carnival of Souls and Plan 9 from Outer Space and a remake of 1963’s Blood Feast. FEARnyc will also pay tribute to late director Wes Craven. His widow, Iya Labunka, will appear at the festival’s awards ceremony.
“This Halloween season, FEARnyc aims to scare the pants off New York City as we present more than 65 new and classic horror films along with an array of cast appearances and special events,” John Capo, founder and director of FEARnyc, said in a statement. “We will also be honoring horror icon Wes Craven, creator of A Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream, in a special tribute.”
