This year, one of the area’s biggest Halloween-themed events returns: the Brooklyn Horror Film Festival!
After two years of cancellations and online-only events, this scary movie showcase returns to its in-person event roots.
This year’s feast runs from Thursday, October 13 to Thursday, October 20. Presented by Shudder, a popular horror movie streaming platform, the fest is the perfect event for those who consider Halloween the most wonderful time of the year.
What’s Playing at the Brooklyn Horror Film Festival?
With a full schedule of US and international horror films both classic and contemporary, the fest covers a wide range of subgenres, including slasher flicks, zombie pics, creepy, campy, spooky, gory, monsters, madmen, and some categories that can’t be classified.
In addition to the various feature film screenings at the Nitehawk Cinema Williamsburg and Williamsburg Cinemas, the fest also spotlights smaller short films and hosts an array of live events, too.
Now in its seventh year, the Brooklyn Horror Film Festival was established in 2016 with the goal of becoming the East Coast’s premiere showcase for horror movies from around the world and throughout the ages.
Highlights of these years festival include:
- The premiers of Nocebo and Old Flame
- Silent film favorite The Phantom of The Opera (with a live music score)
- Halloween star Jamie Lee Curtis in the slasher film classic Terror Train
- Special anniversary screenings of The New York Ripper and Manhattan Baby, Zombie (the only movie in which a zombie and a shark battle each other)
- And many more!
