SINedelphia 2012: Terror Film Festival

The Terror Film Festival returns to Rittenhouse Square’s Ethical Society Building for a weekend of independent horror films that will run from Thursday, October 18 – 20.  We caught up with Festival host Princess Horror to find out more about this year’s installment as well as what she’s been up to since last we spoke.

“I’ve been up to a lot!  I had a table at the Wizard World convention back in May so we were promoting the festival there.  Over the summer we’ve been working on a television show that you can catch on PhillyCAM on Friday nights.  It’s going to be airing on a couple of additional channels too.”

Princess Horror acts as host of this new show that she describes as “Twilight Zone-y with a Saturday afternoon, Dr. Shock-type feel to it.”

Like past installments of the Terror Film Festival, this year’s schedule features a generous amount of short film programs with a feature-length film capping each of the three evenings: Mon Ami, a thriller that is “kind of like Fargo“; Nailbiter, a cross betweewn “Zombi and The Wizard of Oz“; and the “whodunit with a twist”, Garden of Hedon.

Advance tickets run a measly $5 ($10 at the door) with VIP passes going for $35, a steal for ten full programs of entertainment.  College students and actors/actresses with a headshot are always granted free admission.
