Usually, it’s just us horror fundies that get invited to private screenings, film festivals, and hush-hush online events. We’ve just gotten word that this time an entire festival is going to be broadcast online so that all genre fans are going to be able to participate and not just us industry nerds.
On April 16th, 2018 (7pm Central Time) tune your television, tablets & smartphones to the American Horrors Roku Channel to watch the very first American Horrors Film Festival TV Special, shot live at the Geneva 4 theaters & the Thumbs Up Saloon in historic downtown Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, to see all of the killer panels, parties, interviews, directors & stars, fan shout outs & killer horror films from the festival all airing ONLY on American Horrors! <– Link here

I spent a few hours today watching the stream from the website and it was genuinely entertaining. It plays everything from 80’s greats to modern classics, not to mention an endless amount of glorious B-movies cheese. This article is totally a plug, but I felt that this was both a genuinely good concept and it sounds like an awesome event. Bringing film festivals to the masses is an awesome idea and I will be tuning myself to check out the winners. Most of the best, heartfelt horror contributions are found in events like this and I’d love for our readers to participate and be a part of a festival, albeit online. Also…it’s totally free.
