The 2nd Annual Popcorn Frights Film Festival Program is showing quite the impressive line-up!

This is only the second time the Popcorn Frights Film Festival takes place, but this is also Florida’s leading international genre film festival, so you’ll get the chance to watch some amazing and much anticipated horror movies. In fact, most of the movies in the program will have some sort of premiere at this film festival – either for the US, the East Coast or on a State level.

Unfortunately, we won’t be in Miami when the film festival takes place in August, but if you’re anywhere near – or could take a week’s vacation – then this should be a priority.

The 2nd annual Popcorn Frights Film Festival will take place August 12 – 18, 2016 at O Cinema Wynwood in Miami, Florida.

Popcorn Frights Film Festival is notable for being the first and only genre film festival in Florida. As such the people behind the festival are dedicated to celebrating the best of international horror films, which their feature film program is obvious proof of.

I write reviews and recaps on Heaven of Horror. And yes, it does happen that I find myself screaming, when watching a good horror movie. I love psychological horror, survival horror and kick-ass women. Also, I have a huge soft spot for a good horror-comedy. Oh yeah, and I absolutely HATE when animals are harmed in movies, so I will immediately think less of any movie, where animals are harmed for entertainment (even if the animals are just really good actors). Fortunately, horror doesn't use this nearly as much as comedy. And people assume horror lovers are the messed up ones. Go figure!
