Everybody Dies Horror Film Festivalby Seth Metoyer, MoreHorror.com

If you live near the Orange County, CA area and want something to do this weekend, check out the Everybody Dies Horror Film Festival in Brea, California. Check out the full details below!

From the Press Release
Back for its third year, the Everybody Dies Horror Film Festival is returning to Brea, California on September 13th, 14th and 15th. And this year, the scares will be on and off the screen! For the first time in the festival’s history, the EDHFF will be teaming up with Sinister Pointe, Southern California’s only year round permanent haunted attraction.

On Friday, September 13th, audience members will be treated to a VIP sneak preview of Sinister Pointe’s Halloween attraction! After they survive (assuming they survive), the audience will be treated to the first films of the 2013 film fest.

On Saturday, September 14th and Sunday, September 15th, the festival will move right down the road to the Brea Plaza 5 Cinema, home of the EDHFF since 2011.

“This year’s festival is going to be bigger and better than our previous years” proclaimed Sara Parrell, co-director of the Everybody Dies Horror Film Festival since its inception. “We have more nights, more feature films and the evening at Sinister Pointe is going to be amazing!”

Over the span of the three nights, the Everybody Dies Horror Film Festival will showcase fifteen short and feature films. As with previous years, many of the filmmakers will be in attendance for an audience question and answer session. “The Q&A’s have become one of the best parts of the festival” said Jeff Smith, the other director of the EDHFF. “It’s a great chance for the audience to meet these incredibly talented indie filmmakers and also to provide the filmmakers with the opportunity to hang out with each other.”

This year's film line-up is as follows:
Friday, September 13, 2013 at the Sinister Pointe haunted attraction (http://www.sinisterpointe.com)!
Red carpet begins at 6:30pm

Filmmaker Q&A will follow the screening.

The Gauntlet (Rancho Palos Verdes, CA)

They must organize and band together for the sinister adventure that awaits them. Starring Bai Ling, Warren Kole and Dustin Nguyen.

Synopsis: Our second out of competition alumni screening was a big hit at our 2012 festival! On the county line of Deer Head Valley, a derelict woman and her gentleman friend hold captive an innocent man. With the victim’s fate uncertain, the only glimmer of hope lies 80 miles west, in the form of the District Attorney and the plea bargain deal he has devised for a local gang member, indicted on charges of murder. The only problem? The District Attorney is nowhere to be found.
Filmmaker Q&A will follow the screening.

Motivational Growth (Seattle, WA)
Synopsis: Ian Folivor (Adrian DiGiovanni), depressed and reclusive, finds himself taking advice from a fungal growth after a failed suicide attempt. The Mold (Jeffrey Combs), a smooth talking chunk of aspergillus born from the filth collecting in Ian's neglected bathroom, works to win Ian's trust by helping him clean himself up and remodel his lifestyle.

Girl at the Door (Los Angeles, CA)
Synopsis: After a night of rough sex with a beautiful woman, a man is surprised when she keeps returning and replaying the events of the night over and over again exactly, word for word. It's Groundhog Day meets Fatal Attraction.

Kill Her, Not Me (Los Angeles, CA)
Synopsis: Kill Her, Not Me is a combination of I Know What You Did Last Summer and Psycho with the twist that the real threat our heroines face is not the brutal stranger terrorizing them but each other as, in a Stephen King-like frenzy, they scramble to survive. Featuring horror legend Tony Todd!
Filmmaker Q&A will follow the screening.
