Brooklyn Horror Fest starts Friday

Forget the New York Film Festival, the real talk the last five or six weeks around New York, at least within my circles of friends is the Brooklyn Horror Festival. This first year has everyone talking about it with a reverence that is reserved for long standing festivals.  Everyone I know wants to go.

I suspect it's a combination of  good titles and the fact that they roped in horror legend and former Fangoria editor Michael Gingold for Critical Drinking  not to mention best selling horror author and New York Asian Film Festival founder Grady Hendrix  to do a reading. There is a sense that this is going to be something truly special.

We're not going to wade in the way we should because we've been at the NYFF and elsewhere. However we will be reviewing  handful of  films- look for those reviews next weekend.

If you can you really should go to the festival it looks awesome.

With that in mind I have a couple of recommendations and links to a trio of films we've seen previously:

WITHOUT NAME should be at the top of your list. I haven't seen it yet but I have seen director Lorcan Finnegan's FOXES and that is enough.

Also a must see is the classic THE SENTINEL which is old school horror at its finest. I've seen it any number of times and it always creeps me out
