A little about HORROR-RAMA:

HORROR-RAMA is Toronto's ONLY convention and fan experience DEADicated to celebrating horror film culture of all kinds. The show is the brainchild of Luis Ceriz, founder and owner of Toronto’s landmark film culture emporium, SUSPECT VIDEO, Chris Alexander, filmmaker (QUEEN OF BLOOD, FEMALE WEREWOLF), synthwave composer (Music for Murder, Blue Eyes of the Broken Doll), former editor of FANGORIA and co-founder/editor of DELIRIUM magazine as well as marketing specialist (FANGORIA, FANTASM) and actress (BLOOD DYNASTY) Cheryl Singleton. Actress, writer, performer and producer Ali Chappell joined the team in 2018. Together, these multiple maniacs bring their broad knowledge of cinema and of the convention landscape to HORROR-RAMA along their enthusiasm and passion for all things bizarre and fantastical.

    Outstanding festival with a team that really know the indie horror scene. Wasn't able to make it person but received first rate communication throughout. The festival has a strong social media presence and I will definitely be submitting my future work. Highly recommended.

    Thank you selecting our short film. It was really fun to come up to Toronto to view it. Unfortunately the lack of communication before and after the event was extremely frustrating. That said the volunteers "victims" were very nice and helpful. The convention had several booths all with interesting items spanning two floors.

    I had a lot of fun at Horror-Rama 2019. A lot of awesome artists, and I met a lot of people in the community.

    I appreciate that the short films show was epic and 2+ hours. It was a beautiful way to watch and appreciate horror.
    The only improvements I could note is sound levels/projector quality could definitely use some improvement.

    Otherwise a great festival and a great time. Thank you for screening out film! We will be there next year!
