Independence Day Scares
If youre the type who spends the weekend covered in fake blood, parading in front of a camera, then the inaugural Mile High Horror Film Festival is your cup of goo. The two-day festival will overflow with local, national and international indie-horror flicks, everything from student films and animation to shorts including two from Colorado, Robert Bergs finis and Matt Allens Aces & Eights and feature-length films, which will be judged by a panel that includes Blair Witch Project writer/director Daniel Myrick.
The horror doesnt end when the movies do, though. Were also having the folks from Horrorfest host trivia, as well as after-parties and costume contests both nights, says Timothy Schultz, the festivals executive director. Tonights party is at Casselmans, 2620 Walnut Street; tomorrows awards ceremony/party will be at the Lobby, 2191 Arapahoe Street.
The festival starts at 5 p.m. today and runs through tomorrow at Starz FilmCenter, in the Tivoli building on the Auraria campus; ticket prices start at $9 for individual events or $30 for a weekend pass. For details and a complete schedule, visit www.milehighhorrorfilmfestival.com.
