That's a Wrap: Fall FNTFF 2016

That's a wrap on the Fall 2016 edition of Hamilton's Fright Night Theatre Film Festival!

After two days of horror, cult, and exploitation film celebration, the Fall edition of the Fright Night Theatre Film Festival in Hamilton, ON has officially concluded on the evening of October 1st. With seven fiendish feature films and 21 shocking shorts, the Fall 2016 edition of the Fright Night Theatre Film Festival offered something for every fan of fringe film-making -- from gut-wrenching horror dramas to outrageous horror-comedies. Highlights from this season's fest included the World Premiere of UK horror-drama Brackenmore, the North American Premiere of Attack of the Lederhosenzombies, the Hamilton Premiere of hand-drawn animated feature Nova Seed, and the Canadian Premiere of the gross-out Night of Something Strange, which whipped our audience up into a frenzy of stomach-churning hilarity.

To set the tone within the Staircase Theatre, SUBTLE IMPERFECTIONS provided some deadly decor from hand-crafted horror signs to a fan-favorite mock guillotine and a Jason meets Chucky "Your Face Here" carnival photo-op.
