The 3rd Annual HOLLYWOOD HORRORFEST takes off on Friday 9th August with the star-studded, red carpet West Coast Premiere of “Girls & Corpses Productions” Horror-Comedy “EXORCISM AT 60,000 FEET.” This special event features the film’s cast on-stage, including horror legends LANCE HENRIKSEN (Aliens, The Terminator, Millennium) and BILL MOSELEY (The Devil’s Rejects, 3 From Hell), with ROBERT MIANO (The Girl’s Trip, Donny Brasco), BAI LING (Crank: High Voltage, The Crow), KELLI MARONEY (Night of The Comet, Chopping Mall), ROBERT RHINE (Cynthia, Dracula In A Women’s Prison), MATTHEW MOY (2 Broke Girls), SILVIA SPROSS (Giallo), CRAIG NG (A Low Down Dirty Shame), GINO SALVANO (True Lies), SAMMY THE DWARF (Bleeding Steel), BRAD SERVER (Curly’s of The Three Stooges grandson) and the film’s composer RICHARD BAND (Re-Animator, Troll, Puppet Master).

On the last flight of a transatlantic airliner, a priest and a rabbi team up with the passengers to save the plane from a pandemic of demonic possessions which spread through the passengers and eventually to the pilot. Can they land and survive this Exorcism at 60,000 Feet? 

Writer/Producer Robert “Corpsy’ Rhine, who also play Rabbi Feldman, says: “We are extremely excited to see Exorcism at 60,000 Feet with an audience and we were thrilled to be accepted by Hollywood Horrorfest. We had a blast making the film and hope the audience can survive the flight! Seatbelts provided.”

The screening will be followed by a lively Q&A with the cast and journalist/author Pat Jankiewicz with a few surprises along the way.

“We’re big Girls & Corpses fans here and can’t wait to screen this. It’s a movie that needs to be seen with a large audience – it’s a real crowd pleaser,” says festival Director Miles Flanagan.

This is the 2nd feature from GIRLS & CORPSES’ Production arm after their critically acclaimed CYNTHIA (2018). Written and Produced by Robert “Corpsy” Rhine the film is directed by Chad Ferrin (Parasites, Someone’s Knocking at The Door) and promises to be one hell of an evening – it’s a Girls & Corpses Production after all! 

“Genre fans are going to lose their shit when they get an eyeful of Exorcism at 60,000 Feet. A balls out tribute to horror’s golden age from the boys and girls at Girls and Corpses, Exorcism at 60,000 Feet is everything you would expect from the title and so much more. Writer/producer Robert “Corpsy” Rhine (Cynthia) and director Chad Ferrin (Someone’s Knocking at The Door, Parasites) have rounded up all the best and bloodiest talents from the genre, unleashing them on a plane for what promises to be this year’s most garish, gory and unforgettable splatterpiece.” – Silent Motorist Media

It’s great to read that CASSANDRA PETERSON’S PRICE AWARD meant so much to her, as it meant so much to everyone here at HOLLYWOOD HORRORFEST too. We couldn’t have had a funnier and more gracious Honoree than Ms PETERSON this year. Thanks CASSANDRA for making 2018 a great return for HHF! You created the iconic ELVIRA and for that we salute you!

Thanks also to VICTORIA PRICE, RYAN WHEARTY and HALEY WHO for helping create this amazing award and of course to the great man himself, VINCENT PRICE. From the Prince of Horror to the Queen of Horror.

Hollywood’s go-to Sculptor and Creature Designer of the Oscar winning SHAPE OF WATER, MIKE HILL, receives the first ever MONSTER MAKER OF THE YEAR AWARD at HOLLYWOOD HORRORFEST 2018.  Given to a Monster Maker whose work is of particular importance the year of the festival, the award is in recognition of MIKE’S wonderfully rendered amphibious creature, the first ever classic monster to be in an Oscar Winning Feature Film. Congratulations MIKE, whose impressive resume includes sculpting for THE WOLFMAN, MEN IN BLACK 3 and APOCALYPTO.

Living legend CASSANDRA PETERSON, last week was honored with the prestigious PRICE AWARD, at a SOLD OUT HOLLYWOOD HORRORFEST. Given to an artist whose work has achieved iconic status in the horror genre, the award was presented by both VICTORIA PRICE (through a digital presentation) and in-person, by R.C MATHESON (son of legendary writer RICHARD MATHESON). R.C’s father wrote many of the VINCENT PRICE screenplays that were so wonderfully parodied in ELVIRA’S HAUNTED HILLS. The presentation was followed by a screening and cast & crew reunion of the cult classic ELVIRA’S HAUNTED HILLS. All making the Opening Night of HOLLYWOOD HORRORFEST one very special evening.

ALAN HOWARTH received HOLLYWOOD HORRORFEST’S career honoring IMPACT AWARD last weekend and played a live set of Carpenter/Howarth classics from the likes of HALLOWEEN, ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK, BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA and THEY LIVE to name but a few. An amazing night was had by all. Followed by a 30th Anniversary screening of THEY LIVE and a Q&A with HOWARH, THEY LIVE editor GIB JAFFE and THEY LIVE P.A WHITNEY SCOTT BAIN.
