Spectrefest 2014: THE GUEST To Open And THE BABADOOK To Close
In partnership with Cinefamily, the program has been spread out over two months starting next Thursday, September 4, with Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett's thriller The Guest. The festival will close suitably enough on Hallow'en night with Aussie chiller The Babadook, directed by Jennifer Kent.
Other films include Kevin Smith's Tusk, a double bill of Dead Snow, Kiwi horror flick Housebound, and a 30th anniversary screening of Gremlins with director Joe Dante in attendance. It is going to be a good two months!
