Two weeks ago we told you about the Popcorn Frights Film Festival. The horror movie extravaganza gets started August 11th in Miami, Florida. The festival made its first wave of announcements that featured a new Wolf Cop movie, a film from acclaimed filmmaker Rodney Ascher (Room 237), Michael Keating’s new slasher-fest Psychopaths, and so much more. But all that was just the beginning! Popcorn Frights Film Festival released their second wave of announcements this week bringing the total cinematic body count to forty short films and features!

“We couldn’t be more thrilled with this year’s Popcorn Frights Film Festival program as it offers something exciting for every horror lover. These films brilliantly showcase the breadth and quality of genre work being produced worldwide and serve as a great reminder that the genre form is both thriving and continuously evolving. We’re honored to share the vision and voices of this remarkable group of American and international filmmakers and look forward to them creating many memorable moments this year.” – Igor Shteyrenberg & Marc Ferman, Co-Founders & Co-Directors of the Popcorn Frights Film Festival.
