International Horror & Sci-Fi Film Festival 2010

The International Horror & Sci-Fi Film Festival is a sister festival to The Phoenix Film Festival. It's shorter, cheaper and more fun; and also naturally restricted to genre film, showing everything that range might suggest. There are classic films you've seen with guest appearances from some of the stars; new features, some in competition; plenty of short films from student, amateur or up and coming directors; and a few odd other gems thrown in too.

This year the festival reaches its sixth year, returning once more to MADCAP Theaters in Tempe. Special guests are Adam Busch with a screening of Drones; Charles Cyphers with The Fog; Lance Henriksen with Aliens; and Tiffany Shepis with Night of the Demons.

The people running this festival know precisely what they're doing and they're all major players in this local community. Check them all out if you're into film in Arizona, beginning with Chris and Jason and the folks at the The Phoenix Film Foundation. Andrea, the Midnite Movie Mamacita is the event director. Program directors are Danny and Brandon from I Can Smell Your Brains for horror; and science fiction writer Mike Stackpole for sci-fi.

Here are all the films showing this year, with film titles linking to my reviews and the IMDb pages added for reference. My reviews will fill in over the next week or so.
