The festival’s closing night is a big one. 1988’s classic horror NIGHT OF THE DEMONS celebrates its 30th Anniversary with a cast & crew reunion, headed by its uber-talented director KEVIN TENNEY. It’s also our Awards Ceremony and last chance to buy tickets for the celebrity raffle – fundraising for the wonderful VINCENT PRICE ART MUSEUM. And we’ll be topping it off with a fun 80’s themed party – full bar (with ID). Best 80’s cosplayers win some amazing prizes.

There’ll be vendors selling horror merchandise, snacks in the kitchen and food from some of the best tasting food trucks in town – plus lots of fun giveaways too.

More guests and party info to announce in the coming weeks.
