Popcorn Frights Logo 2016 (Black)

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 to enjoy. They have put together an amazing mix of feature and short films.

Here’s a look at the film lineup for August 15-16

August 15 at 7:00pm


FLORIDA PREMIERE. A black-clad vixen infiltrates a sumptuous mansion overrun with cultists in what begins as a rescue mission, and then deliriously descends into an eerie musical reverie, before finally arriving at a most unexpected conclusion.


FLORIDA PREMIERE. Fans of Dario Argento, Mario Bava, Lucio Fulci, and Goblin dare not miss Francesca, a visually stunning homage to the famed Italian Giallo genre that so faithfully and lovingly reproduces its seductive and perverse forms that it feels like it was literally plucked from the era! A dazzling combination of menacing Grand Guignol atmosphere, brilliant cinematography, gory violence, lush décor, and pounding soundtrack, Francesca tells the tale of a psychopath who uses Dante’s “Divine Comedy” as a clever reference to rid the city of impure souls through a series of gruesome murders. This audacious film synthesizes all the familiar Giallo motifs (psycho killers, blood violence, convoluted plot twists, pulse-pounding music) into an almost perfect symphony of fear that’s unlikely to ever be repeated on screen.

FLORIDA PREMIERE. As a real estate agent goes about her business to close a sale on a dilapidated house, she begins to discover that the property is inhabited by an evil presence working against her.


EAST COAST PREMIERE. Seven meets Dark City meets Hellraiser in Darren Lynn Bousman’s (Saw II) startlingly unsettling new horror film that centers on a mysterious house that’s been constructed wholly from rooms where deaths have occurred. An investigative reporter with the style and confidence of a young Lauren Bacall is the first to stumble upon these series of gruesome murders as she is helplessly led into the belly of this hellish and haunted beast.

SOUTH FLORIDA PREMIERE. A recently released criminal is looking for a good time. He can forget his sins but he can never forget…Gwilliam.


FLORIDA PREMIERE. Almost certainly destined for cult classic status, The Barn is a perfect retro throwback to classic 80s VHS horror flicks like The Monster Squad, Halloween III: Season of the Witch, and Full Moon’s empire of direct to video features. It’s Halloween 1989, and best friends Sam and Josh are trying to enjoy what’s left of their final Devil’s Night before graduating high school. But the two pals and a group of their friends get more trick than treat when they take a detour on their way to a rock concert, finding an old abandoned barn and awakening a trio of Halloween demons inside. Now it’s up to Sam and Josh to find a way to protect their friends and defeat the flesh-hungry creatures that lurk within The Barn. Featuring Ari Lehman, the first Jason Voorhees from Friday the 13th.

FLORIDA PREMIERE. A treat for lovers of the bloody grindhouse cinema of the ’70s, this harrowing psycho-thriller stars Pat Healy (Cheap Thrills) as an unhinged sniper who terrorizes a bank-robbing duo and their beautiful hostage after they stumble into his desert killing fields. Thrust into a wicked game of cat and mouse with a highly trained and mentally imbalanced killer, they begin a harrowing fight for survival. Mickey Keating’s (Darling) latest descent into insanity has him braiding crime caper and survival story into one demented thrill ride that features a soon-to-be iconic damsel in distress turned “don’t fuck with me” badass traversing the horrors of Carnage Park.

Preceded by the short film:

DEATH METAL – A practical effects driven splatter comedy featuring a metalhead, his guitar and carnage. US Premiere!
