Screamfest Announces Complete 2017 Lineup, Tix On Sale Now!


The movie lineup for the 17th annual Screamfest Horror Film Festival has been revealed and tickets are now available here. Running Oct. 10 – Oct. 19 at the TCL Chinese 6 Theater in Los Angeles, the event will see the premiere of a variety of features and shorts from around the world.

Opening night gets rocking with the world premiere of Dead Ant, the much buzzed about horror-comedy about an aging hair-metal outfit terrorized by giant ants after unleashing an ancient curse while on a dope binge during their comeback tour. The film stars Tom Arnold , Jake Busey (”From Dusk Till Dawn”), Sean Astin (Lord of the Rings), Leosha Hailey (”L-Word”), and Cameron Richardson (“Harper’s Island”).

Also holding its world premiere at the festival will be social media thriller Like.Share.Follow. The film follows a rising YouTube star tormented by the emotionally troubled fan he foolishly bedded. Tragedy Girls also takes a stab at social media. The film is making its U.S. debut and stars Brianna Hildebrand (Deadpool) and Alexandra Shipp (X-Men: Apocalypse) as BFFs who would kill to go viral.

Other U.S. premieres include: Alone, about a group of teens who, like Tiffany before them, think they’re alone now in the world; Double Date, a British indie about a doughy 30-year-old ginger who meets serial killing sisters while desperately looking to lose his virginity; Irish ghost story The Lodgers, and WWI outbreak thriller Trench 11.

L.A. premieres include: To Hell and Back: The Kane Hodder Story, a documentary on the man behind Friday the 13th’s Jason Voorhees mask; extreme haunt frightener Ruin Me; and 1922, an adaptation of the Stephen King novella about a farmer who murders his wife with the help of his son and is haunted by his actions in ways he never imagined. 1922 stars Thomas Jane and debuts on Netflix Oct. 20.

And, then, there’s… Leatherface, the newest entry in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise helmed by celebrated Inside directors Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury. The highly anticipated sequel provides an origins story for the iconic chainsaw-wielding madman.

Screamfest is the biggest and longest-running horror film festival in the U.S. The show is a star-studded event where filmmakers and actors  talk horror with each other and the public. For complete movie lineup and to purchase tickets, visit the Screamfest website.
