We've made no secret of our fondness for the upstart Stanley Film Fest. Taking place at the historic Stanley Hotel (famous as Stephen King's inspiration for The Shining) in Estes Park, Colorado, Stanley has quickly become the premier destination horror festival. The good people of the Denver Film Society have been hard at work and have put together one hell of a program for their third edition which kicks off tomorrow. ScreenAnarchy will be representin' at the fest and we'll have plenty of updates as the weekend rolls along. But first we'll take you on a quick tour of some of the most exciting happenings at the festival, both cinematic and otherwise.

We Are Still Here
Ted Geoghegan's directorial debut is heavy on Fulci influences. With characters named after cast and crew from House By The Cemetery and set in New England, this could be a fun horror roller coaster ride of a story. Plus, Lisa Marie, Larry Fessenden, Barbara Crampton, and Andrew Sensenig star, while producer Travis Stevens (Cheap Thrills, Starry Eyes, Jodorowsky's Dune, Big Ass Spider!) will likely bring his usual Midas touch.- Izzy
