As Halloween approaches, horror filmmakers all over are previewing and premiering their films. Shorts and features from all around the world find this time of year perfect to share their scares. One event in particular is a mecca for indie horror community and We Are Indie Horror has deep rooted past in this event.
Two years ago iNK Films, Neil King and Brian Sapir’s production company, premiered their “high horror art” short film titled A Shadow Fell (Watch HERE). At that event Neil and Brian came up with the idea for We Are Indie Horror. A few months later, it all began. As the next year’s Halloween Short Horror Film Night approached, Seraph Films asked WAIH to help produce the event, leading to Candi Fear hosting the evening and a costume contest as well as the biggest turn out in the events history. Due to the incredible overwhelming support from fans, this year’s event had to be split into two blocks to allow for a larger crowd.
The 4th annual Halloween Horror short film night is upon us and here are some of the films that you can catch at El Cid tonight, October 26th, 2016.
