Photos: Mile High Horror Film Festival Ushers in the Scary Season

The Mile High Horror Film Festival returned to the Alamo Drafthouse this past weekend, as a spooky kickoff to Denver's scariest season. Horror fans came out in droves, many dressed for the occasion. We sent photographer Aaron Thackeray to catch the frightful sights, and he survived the horror long enough to send back these pictures.

Now see the complete Mile High Horror Festival slide show.
