UPDATED: Thu, Jul 02, 12:35PM
Thanks to a bold new school of filmmakers and creative talent, independent horror and genre cinema is enjoying an unprecedented resurgence of critical and box office success. Kicked off by You're Next in 2011, this new wave of independent genre film has continued to thrive and has broken through over the past year with The Babadook and It Follows. Hosted by the US' leading genre film festivals, we discuss this convention-defying movement with the directors, producers, writers, production companies and programmers who are progressively shaping the brave evolution of cinematic terror. Scheduled panelists include Elijah Wood (Spectrevision /Cooties), director Sarah Adina Smith (The Midnight Swim), director/producer Roxanne Benjamin (V/H/S, V/H/S/2), Mette Marie Katz (XYZ Films -The Raid, The Raid 2), Christian Parkes (Founder/Director Beyond Fest), Ryan Turek (Programmer - Beyond Fest), and Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead (directors of Spring) with more to be announced, featuring an exclusive sneak peek at Spectrevision's Cooties and Radius' Goodnight Mommy. Additional films to be discussed include The Invitation, The Witch, Cop Car and more! Added bonus: Join Turek and Shock Til You Drop Managing Editor Sam Zimmerman for a special round of Dead Rights Horror Trivia at the end of the panel for a chance to win passes to the renowned festivals hosting the panel! Moderated by The Daily Beast's Jen Yamato.
