    In a word--phenomenal. I was absolutely thrilled to have my short film, Fowl Fury, included in your horror fest. You "tickled my catastrophe!" Much appreciation.

    I highly recommend this festival! I had a blast. The films were awesome. The people, even better. Made a ton of new friends and connections and my film was very well received. This fest is a labor of love and it’s clear the moment you walk in. George James Fraser and his wife put their heart and soul into making it the best fest possible. I would attend every year if I could! Congrats on a successful festival and can’t wait for next year.
