Holy Crap! What a fantastic night for a Resurrection.
Thank you thank you thank you to everyone that made HorrorFest 2018 a raging success.
Huge gratitude for all the filmmakers and their teams, who put there time and efforts into creating something for us all to enjoy.
Thanks also to all our sponsors, it was an emotional year and such a huge outpouring of support was felt and appreciated.
We couldn't have done it without our top notch volunteers, and the excellent team at Arts Whistler/Maury Young Theatre. Kudos to all.
And finally, the horror fans and attendees. Thank you for coming, now start planing next year's movies!!
After a two year hiatus we are thrilled to be resurrecting HorrorFest on Tuesday, October 30, 2018 at Maury Young Arts Centre – back where HorrorFest started in 2002.
