The 2009 International Horror & Sci-Fi Film Fest Starts Thursday!

International Horror & Sci-Fi Film Festival 2009

One of the highlights of the Phoenix horror scene is the annual International Horror & Sci-Fi Film Festival. This year's iteration runs October 15-18, 2009, at MADCAP Theaters, the festival's new home in downtown Tempe. Running the show once again is Andrea Beesley-Brown, the Midnite Movie Mamacita, and she's put together an amazing line-up of features and shorts. The IHSFFF opens on Thursday, October 15th with a 7:15PM screening of one of my favorite underrated sci-fi action flicks, Paul Verhoeven's Starship Troopers (1997). Star Casper Van Dien, Johnny Rico himself, will be in attendance, answering questions after the movie and then signing autographs in the lobby (all proceeds from Van Dien's signing go to Childhelp USA).(read more...)

Pictures from the Phoenix First Friday Zombie Walk and Scavenger Hunt

Zombies Walk

Last Friday, during Phoenix's monthly First Friday Artswalk, the International Horror & Sci-Fi Film Festival and the AZ Ghostbusters teamed up to throw a Zombie Walk and Scavenger Hunt. The turn-out was excellent, with some really creative zombies and ghouls on display (including the Frankenstein monster and his bride!). Classic-Horror was on hand, taking pictures and tabulating scores. The best of our pictures can be seen in the slideshow below:(read more...)

Reminder: Zombie Walk and Scavenger Hunt Tonight in Phoenix

Dawn of the Dead 1978 review still

Edited to give more accurate directions to the Scavenger Hunt registration. If you're in the Phoenix area and you're looking for something to do tonight, the International Horror & Sci-Fi Film Festival is hosting a Zombie Walk and Scavenger Hunt as part of downtown's First Friday Arts Walk. Heck, even if you already have plans, drop 'em, because this is going to be a ton of fun.

The Zombie Walk will gather together at the Arizona Ghostbusters booth at 501 E. Roosevelt by Pravus Gallery and begin shambling at 7:00PM.

At the same time, registration for the Zombie Scavenger Hunt opens at the International Horror & Sci-Fi Film Festival Booth, which has been moved to Spot #40 in Vendor Village (Garfield St., east of 5th St). You can do both the Walk and the Scavenger Hunt, however, because the Hunt itself doesn't start until 8PM. 

Full scavenger hunt rules and details are at the IHSFF website.

Zombies Walk and Scavenge in Phoenix Next Friday

Begin gathering en masse at 6:30PM at the Arizona Ghostbusters booth (501 E. Roosevelt by Pravus Gallery). At 7:00PM, the AZ Ghostbusters will lead the horde of the undead around the First Friday festivities, ending up at the International Horror & Sci-Fi Film Festival booth in the Vendor Village (Spot #98, on the east side of 5th Street, south of Garfield). There you can register your team of up to four zombies for the Second Annual Zombie Scavenger Hunt, in the hopes of winning the grand prize of four VIP passes to the 2009 International Horror and Sci-Fi Film, which runs October 15-18.

Full coverage is upcoming, but here's some pictures to tease you (click a picture to open a larger version in a new window):
