Year Two and Thank Yous.

I am excited about the possibilities that year two have to offer for the festival as well as for the filmmakers and the fans of the horror genre. The team has been working so hard this past year to ensure an amazing weekend.

I've been lax in posting this year. My sincerest apologies. There are so many wonderful things to share with you. We have many wonderful guests coming to this year's fest. We have wonderful new team members and also some amazing more promos that were done for the festival. Chris Gaida, our Director of PR and Media teamed up with Director, Vartan Nazarian to create some amazing videos for our viral marketing campaign.

Thank you also to my co-producer Jamie Kristen who has put it in a tireless amount of work and energy into the logistics of the fest. It's not easy, I know that but she has an amazing gift of pulling things together.

Here is to our second year. *cheers*
