    Hollywood Dead Film Fest was a great horror fest with a lovely sense of community. There was a lot of fun films, great food with a touch of festival fun in the Halloween-inspired red liquorice, and a superb nice location at the Burbank. Everyone really enjoyed themselves all day. Hopefully it can be a full weekend next year!
