Festival designed to expose and promote films and screenplays that work outside the system and break the boundaries in the horror genre. To bring a voice to the talented independent filmmakers & writers living in a world saturated with commercial entertainment.

Submit your HORROR films and screenplays today to the festival.

Our mission is to promote screenplays, films and videos that dissent radically in form, technique, or content, and challenge and transcend commercial and audience expectations using the audience FEEDBACK festival format that the flagship festivals uses.

Film festival occurs 6 times a year in Montreal and Los Angeles. Each accepted film received 2 festival screenings. Cinema screening where they will receive their audience feedback video. And the virtual screening (4-6 weeks after) that is an industry showcase of the best HORROR films from around the world today.

Screenplay Festivals occur once a month. We perform the winners in a studio using professional Canadian actors and post them online for the entire world to see.

NOTE: Accepted works also get the opportunity to do two interviews: A blog interview and an ITunes Film Festival podcast interview.

All submissions receive full feedback from the industry (even short films).

Accepted short films get their movie showcased at the 6 times a year at the feedback film festival.

Winning screenplays get their screenplay performed at the festival and turned into a YouTube promotional video.

NEW Showcase: Submit your FEATURE FILM and receive an audience feedback promotional/testimonial video of your film. Great video to use to get into more festivals and/or promote your film. All submissions receive feedback on their film no matter what.

  • Fantastic festival! Great communication throughout the entire process. We're thrilled that RETURN TO SENDER is included in the showcases as an Official Selection and just found out we received Best Direction for WHAT IF! Thank you to the entire team at HORROR Underground for taking the time to create an Audience Feedback video for my film! Overall, this was an amazing experience!!
