Miami's Popcorn Frights Festival to screen The Endless, Sequence Break, Super Dark Times
Florida’s Popcorn Frights Film Festival announced on Monday its second wave of programming, which includes directors Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead’s mind-bender The Endless; the Cronenbergian and Chase Williamson-starring Sequence Break; and the much-tipped coming-of-age tale, Super Dark Times.
Other films screening at the event include the slasher film Tragedy Girls and the deranged caper movie 68 Kill, whose cast is topped by Matthew Gray Gubler from Criminal Minds. The festival will also host the U.S. premiere of the Lauren Holly-starring horror-comedy Dead Shack and the North American premiere of The Hatred, which comes from Halloween franchise producer, Malek Akkad.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled with this year’s Popcorn Frights Film Festival program as it offers something exciting for every horror lover,” said the festival’s co-directors, Igor Shteyrenberg and Marc Ferman, in a statement. “These films brilliantly showcase the breadth and quality of genre work being produced worldwide and serve as a great reminder that the genre form is both thriving and continuously evolving.”
You can learn more about the festival at the event’s official website.
