Shriekfest - and the winners are...

October is the time to gear up and get in the Halloween spirit.  A great way to do that is to catch a horror flick and one of the best places to do that is at a horror film festival.

Last weekend in the Chaplain Theater at the Raleigh Studios in Hollywood, California, Shriekfest 2013 presented an amazing series of feature films and shorts.  At one point there were too many people in line for the movie that they had to open another theater.
