Screamfest 2017 Award Winners Announced!


The 17th annual Screamfest Horror Film Festival came to a close this week with the announcement of its Skully Award Show winners. Mexican ghost story Tigers Are Not Afraid took top honors, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, and Best Actress.

That left very little to go around. Fortunately, for Dead Ant, no one slipped on a banana peel or took a pie to the face in Tigers Are Not Afraid, leaving the Best Horror Comedy prize up for grabs. The comedic creature-feature pits an aging hair metal band against giant ants. If you haven’t read our review of Dead Ant, here’s a spoiler: it rocks!
