I think it goes without saying that I love horror movies and everything about them. In fact I think it is a genre of film that should be celebrated in every way. Thankfully there is an event in Denver that does just that and if you haven't had the chance to attend it the last three years, get ready because the Mile High Horror Film Festival is back for its fourth year this October 3-6.
We here at Girls of Geek had the opportunity to cover this event last year and I can tell you, it is world class. Not only do you get to enjoy horror film after horror film but you can also meet horror film legends and this year is no different. In fact just the other day, Mile High Horror Film Festival announced its first wave of guests and this lineup is already pretty stellar. To start it off, Jeffrey Reddick will be returning this year, with the title of Jury Chair. If that name sounds familiar it should, he was the creator of the Final Destination series. We had the chance to speak with Mister Reddick last year and I can tell you he is an all around nice guy and extremely gracious to his fans. Take a moment to visit him at his table, you won't regret it.
But Jeffrey is just the beginning. For all of you John Carpenter fans, Meg Foster from They Live will also be in attendance. How awesome is that? But it still doesn't end there, Doug Bradley, the man who played Pinhead in the Hellraiser series will be in attendance along with Ken Foree, who played Peter in Dawn of the Dead.
Plus, there's an extra bonus that comes with Ken Foree attending the Festival this year. Now while I am excited to see all these awesome guests, there is one event that will happen that left my jaw on the floor. There will be a screening of my favorite film of all time with Ken as the special guest. That's right, they are showing Dawn of the Dead on the big screen.
That's how awesome the Mile High Horror Film Festival is, and to top it off, they are hosting it at the amazing Alamo Drafthouse Denver this year, which as you know is the best venue in the state when it comes to movie watching. So I would hope by now you're as excited as I am for this event and I would hope you're now making plans to get your tickets as soon as possible because trust me, this is a hot ticket.
While that may sound like a salesman line, trust me, I'm not joking. The All Access passes are sold out folks. Day passes are still available, so get them now so you can settle in and bask in this celebration of horror.
