Phoenix Fear Film Fest, also known as FearCon, is an independent horror film festival in Arizona run by Jim & Chris McLennan from Trash City, a modern day empire built up the lowly but characterful fanzine Jim produced back in England that I enjoyed from the first issue.
2010 saw Fear Fest move from the recently closed Chandler Cinemas, where I enjoyed the previous festival, to MADCAP Theaters in Tempe for its third festival. Many of the filmmakers made it out to introduce their films and conduct Q&As, including the directors of three of the five features and a plethora of other cast and crew. Films are only part of the FilmCon experience and you can relive all the fun at the 2010 section of the FilmFest website.
Here are all the films that were shown at Phoenix Fear Film Fest 2010, with film titles linking to my reviews and the IMDb pages added for reference, where possible.
