Popcorn Frights Film Festival presents the very best genre films from across the world as it celebrates the art of horror. The Festival is South Florida’s first and only horror film festival, with its second annual event taking place August 12-18, 2016 at Miami’s landmark O Cinema Wynwood theater.

That’s right, a weeks’ worth of horror films for to enjoy. They have put together an amazing mix of feature and short films. Here’s a look at a few of them…


SOUTH FLORIDA PREMIERE. In this atmospheric, brutal, and darkly beautiful film, two young students at a prestigious prep school for girls are assailed by an evil, invisible power when they are stranded at the school over winter break. Easily one of the most unforgettable horror films you’ll see all year, The Blackcoat’s Daughter is frightening with razor-sharp tension and a suffocating, intense atmosphere which grips from the first frame and doesn’t let go.

Starring Kiernan Shipka (Mad Men), Emma Roberts (American Horror Story, Scream Queens) and featuring original music composed by the legendary Elvis Perkins.

FLORIDA PREMIERE. Your worst fears realized…for a price! Fear, Inc. is a fiendishly twisted and deliriously fun love letter to genre movies that’s a mind-blowing horror-show cocktail of blood, guts, and screams. When a horror junkie and his friends sign up with a company that brings their customer’s greatest fears to life, they must quickly determine if its demented employees are there to scare them, or make them pawns in their own sick and deadly game. Like Wes Craven’s Scream, Fear, Inc. inspires outsized frights and dread even as it hilariously skewers and splatters horror movie cliches in funny, spirited ways. Featuring a special appearance by Abigail Breslin (Zombieland).

FLORIDA PREMIERE. Just imagine if David Cronenberg slipped into a fever dream while binge-watching Dexter, Fargo, and Six Feet Under, in one go, and you’ll have just a shade of what I Am Not a Serial Killer has on offer. A darkly heartfelt, astonishingly foreboding, and imaginatively sinister tale of a likable teenager (Max Records of Where the Wild Things Are), raised by a mortician family, whose own nascent sociopathic tendencies make him a perfect amateur sleuth when a serial killer strikes his folksy Midwestern town. Take it from us, the film is far, far more unique and fantastically bloody than the premise might imply, helped in no small part by an Oscar-worthy performance by Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future).
