From the makers of GenreBlast comes a down and dirty 2-day celebration of grindhouse, exploitation, cult, underground and midnight cinema.

Emanating from the Palace Theater in downtown Chattanooga, Tennessee, our aim above all is to have fun, have a few drinks and enjoy some great movies.

Features and shorts in three categories: Midnight/Cult, Grindhouse/Exploitation and Extreme Horror. Show us what you got!

We have all of the essentials: a kickass theater, a bar and your films! Plus access to restaurants and pubs in the downtown Chattanooga area. Network with fellow filmmakers and revel in all the juicy, gory, groovy cinematic goodness we're putting together.

We will have exclusive Tennessee premieres of both Lieutenant Jangles and The Theta Girl. In addition, director of The Theta Girl, Chris Bickel, will be our special guest of honor for the fest! He will be selling and signing copies of The Theta Girl and promoting his brand new film Sister Vengeance!

All submission content must be owned entirely by you. No copyrighted content unless you have paid to use it.

No refunds for submissions, so if you have any questions, make sure you ask them BEFORE you submit.

All films not in English must be submitted with English subtitles. We don't like dubbing, so don't even bother with that.

That's pretty much it. Email us if you have any questions that don't have anything to do with asking for a waiver.

Shock us, scare us, make us laugh. Do your worst.
