Random Fun by Gino Sassani on June 28th, 2010
On Sept. 28, Fangoria magazine and Lightning Media are releasing eight feature-length horror/thrillers as the Fangoria FrightFest collection.
From now through July 19, fans are the voting jury in a mini film festival “Demand It” competition hosted by Fangoria, to select one of the eight films for limited theatrical release in late July by viewing and voting for their favorite trailer at www.FangoriaFrightfest.com.
The FrightFest line-up represents a diversified array of quality genre entertainment of a range of horror film styles embracing fans of every demographic—from supernatural chillers to psychological horror and slasher flicks. These eight new, terrifying flicks feature such stars as the Twilight saga’s Xavier Samuel, Calista Flockhart, Keri Russell, Michael Madsen, Eric Roberts and more.

I just rated for The Haunting, (http://tinyurl.com/3xcexc3)
but I’m kinda confused. So how can I still see my favorite film if it doesn’t win in Frightfest?

The winner will enjoy a limited theatrical release.

Loved Pig Hunt & Dark House for their crude humor and cliche horror deaths. Just ordered them both last night. Lucky for me I saved $15 thanks to my Best Buy account.
