FEATURE TOPIC: Blood Fest
Fans flock to a festival celebrating the most iconic horror movies, only to discover that the charismatic showman behind the event has a diabolical agenda. As festival attendees start dying off, three teenagers – more schooled in horror-film cliches than practical knowledge about neutralizing psycho killers – must band together and battle through various madmen and monstrosities to survive.
Director: Owen Egerton
Cast: Zachary Levi,Â Robbie Kay,Â Seychelle Gabriel
