Here are some Horror related events that will be happening. If anyone out there goes to any of these events and they want to write up a guest blog/review about it let me know. I wont be able to attend these events but would love to hear about and share with readers the experience. Or if you attend one that is not listed here that would be fine for a guest blog as well.

The organizers of TromaDance believe films are meant to be seen, especially when it comes to new filmmakers. Art - in all its forms - is for the people! The TromaDance Film Festival Committee is now accepting submissions for TromaDance 2011! The deadline for submissions is February 11, 2011.
