From Allan Day's "Horror descends upon the Galt House this weekend for the annual Fright Night Film Fest":
This upcoming weekend offers a celebration of all things horrific in the world of cinema: the annual Fright Night Film Festival, which takes place at the Galt House Hotel downtown. Fright Night is three days chock-full of celebrities and panels and workshops and, of course, back-to-back horror films.
In the true spirit of “Keeping [Fright Night] Weird” (phrase coined by me), most – if not all – of the movies are contributed by independent filmmakers. The submissions are too numerous to list here – they are playing back-to-back all weekend, after all – but a couple of highlights include “Nothing in the Flowers” (see my interview with David Brewer here and my review of his film here), the awesome zombie-alien action film “Overtime” (see my interview with Brian Cunningham here), and “Below Zero” and the Louisvillian-made "It's In the Blood," both of which screened at this year's Derby City Film Festival.
Those interested in meeting their favorite movie stars are in serious luck, for this year's guests are quite numerous and include Sean Astin, Nicholas Brendan, James Marsters, Peter Davidson, Sean Patrick Flanery, Tyler Mane, Sid Haig, and so on and so on, all leading up to the main celebrity event of the weekend: Bruce Campbell himself will be in attendance on Saturday. All those who wet themselves in excitement should now take a moment to go change their pants.
