(SD) Horrible Imaginings Film Festival


November 10th & 11th

Horrible Imaginings Film Festival

Horrible Imaginings was created to accommodate the lack of events in the city of San Diego that celebrate the horror genre. After finding a home at the 10th Avenue Theatre and Arts Centre in the developing part of eastern downtown San Diego, the “First Film Festival in San Diego Dedicated to Macabre Cinema and Art” launched with great success on November 6, 2010. The maiden revival films were Michael Powell’s psychological thriller Peeping Tom and Lucio Fulci’s classic avant garde shocker The Beyond.

Following the success of the first Horrible Imaginings Film Festival, the festival director decided to start a quarterly film series, reviving Lewis Jackson’s Christmas Evil in December with an introduction by Lewis Jackson himself, James Whale’s The Bride of Frankenstein in February of 2011, and George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead during the Gam3rCon event in July.

With the dual mission of reviving classic horrible films, combined with giving the screen to up and coming new film makers, Horrible Imaginings Film Festival promises to be a new force in San Diego that is here to stay. As one audience member put it—“San Diego is too sunny! We need some darkness!”
