After viewing a mountain of excellent entries, I am proud to announce the official selections for the second bi-annual Hollyshorts Hollywood Horror Nights with Justin Beahm, happening this October 30th. The block starts at 9:30pm (Pacific) and takes place at the historic TCL Chinese Theatres in Hollywood.
UPDATE: Due to a scheduling conflict, Fangoria scribe, actor, author and cinema encyclopedia Pat Jankiewicz will step in as guest host on the 30th. I will return for the spring screening event.
Without further ado, I am proud to announce the following superb films, each of which will be spotlighted on the Facebook page in the coming weeks leading to the screening night.
