Montreal ComicCon and HorrorFest Just Weeks Away

Montreal ComicCon and HorrorFest Just Weeks Away

gillian-andersonAwright, it’s that time of year again. The Montreal ComicCon and HorrorFest are fast approaching and very cool announcements from both camps have been flying for a couple of months now.

As far as guests go, the joint events have lined up horror notables such as Gillian Anderson, fresh off her new role with the hit series Hannibal, Scream Queen Debbie Rochon, and the ladies of Evil Dead, including Betsy Baker, Ellen Sandweiss and Theresa Tilly, all in addition to a return appearance by Lloyd Kaufman.

The HorrorFest has also released its first wave of feature films. Last year, the HorrorFest featured excellent films such as Jacob, Bloody Bloody Bible Camp and social media darling The Orphan Killer. This year the list is no less interesting, including plenty of slashers but, hell, let’s not limit ourselves here, the first ten films announced demonstrate a variety and eclecticism that should please any horror fan. And there’s more to come.

We’ll be featuring some of the films here during the days leading up to the HorrorFest.

Be sure to check the ComicCon and HorrorFest sites regularly (oh, and check back with us as well, of course) and, if you haven’t already, be sure to buy your tickets.

The events run from September 13 to September 15 at the Palais des congres in Montreal.
