It’s the perfect horror festival and it’s got the perfect NYC attitude (loud, abrasive and unapologetic). And that fits perfectly. They are well organized, welcoming and professional. They treat you like family and show you a good time, but above all, every film and filmmaker is treated with respect. Then when you mix it with that NYC attitude, it equals a fun time with great people that care about horror, the festival and you.
