The Happenstance Horror Fest is Coming at Ya!

Happenstance Horror Fest (1)The 2018 Happenstance Horror Fest – June 12 2018
Chunky’s Cinema and Pub – Haverhill, Massachusetts

The third annual Happenstance Horror Fest is here. Presented by George James Fraser of Stained Glass and Blood Bath Productions, the HHF features the very best of independent horror short films from around the world. Taking pride in its punk rock party atmosphere the HHF hosts a variety of artists and horror themed vendors from the New England area. Special guests and judges will be in attendance as well as many filmmakers.

George James Fraser started the film festival in 2016 as a way to present independent horror to large audiences. Each year a Fraser/Stained Glass and Blood Bath film is premiered. This year that film is Salt and Iron starring William DeCoff and Marissa Joy.

Awards are presented for best local, national, and international film. The audience will also get the chance to vote for their favorite films in various categories including best death, best score, best FX, and more. 2018 will feature the very first recognition of women in horror award sponsored by Morbidly Beautiful.

Chunkys Cinema and Pub has been home to the HHF since the beginning. Offering a full menu of food and adult beverage, the venue has a comfortable atmosphere where servers will keep your drinks full as you enjoy sitting in the seats that are actually pulled from old Cadillacs and other classic cars.

Fraser’s goal in this event is to hold a film festival that stands out from the rest. The HHF encourages a rowdy crowd and hopes to hear every bit of screams and laughter without concern. And there will be plenty to be had.
