Horror Hound is the largest horror film festival in the United States, drawing fans, celebrities, artists, and creators from around the world. Just because there's a nightmare panedmic keeping us all trapped indoors doesn't mean the creepy fun has to stop, so HorrorHound is taking this year's festival online.
It's going on this week from the 20th to the 24th, with livestreams operating from 6PM to past midnight each day. There's gonna be surprise guests, film intros, paneling, and exclusive merch!
How much does this sweet deal cost? A mere $15.

The Virtual HorrorHound Film Festival will kick off with a night filled with new feature films and shorts that would have made up the lineup of the intended HorrorHound Film Festival. Programming will last past midnight, and include many surprises, including introductions by filmmakers, filmmaker panels and special looks back at past HorrorHound Weekend events. While the livestream is occurring, fans can also participate in our chat feature, and talk with one another while the movies are streaming – chat sessions in which the filmmakers will be participating in as well. Plus, we will have a live Viewing Party option, where attendees can participate in live video chats during the films' livestreams.
On top of this, people who attend the Virtual Film Fest will have access to new HorrorHound merchandise – made available for the first time as part of this digital event. Merchandise drops include a brand-new HorrorHound Hoodie, bandana, and pins. We will be releasing (for the first time online) sticker packs and magnet packs, HorrorHound socks, patches, and other fun products. PLUS: This will mark the first time we will be selling specially produced convention merchandise – items which were created for “the show that never was" – March's HHW event. This includes our exclusive HorrorHound Magazine, event T-Shirt, and pin. A special bundle will be available first – and will include bonus materials (such as an exclusive tote bag ... we will even throw in random extras, such as badges from this would-be event (you may even find yourself with one of those coveted GUEST badges!). The festivities kick off Wednesday, May 20th, at 6pm – and will continue each night at the same time, through Sunday, May 24th. *Select convention merch will first be made available as part of a bundle pack; with remaining stock offered later during the ‘Fest.
