    An amazing experience. So much more than a film festival, a fun filled event with horror film family. The vendors, the films, the Q&A's, the special guests, the organizers, the hotel staff, everyone, made this a truly remarkable experience. I shall submit again, and plan to return.

    Thrilled and humbled to have The Boogeyman be a part of last weekend's Shock Stock 2024 in London, ON in the 'Canadian Creasy' short film category! Such a cool horror fest with a killer vibe, rabid horror fans, great guests and awesome horror films from all across the world! High recommend for anyone who loves a good horror fest!

    We had so much fun at Shock Stock with my short 'The Things We Do To Ourselves'! The communication was great and it was so much fun.
    Thank you to the organizers and the volunteers. You rock my socks!

    Shock Stock is an invaluable experience as an event. Part film festival, part horror convention, part non-stop party - it's an incredible slurry of freaks and friends held at a venue kubrick would die for. Everything about this festival was perfect, and the love shared by coordinators, staff, filmmakers, tablers, and fans was palpable. It was my first year and felt extremely welcome. The kind of place you could go to anyone for help and they'd find some way to assist. Excited for next year!
