Both gumbo and gore will presumably be on the menu
The chances of anyone freezing to death at next year’s Overlook Film Festival have been reduced from slim to none. It was announced Wednesday that next year’s iteration of the horror-themed event — which is named after the hotel in Stephen King’s haunted hotel tale The Shining — will be held in New Orleans from April 19-22. Screenings will take place at Regal Cinemas’ Cinebarre Canal Place 9 movie theater while the festival will he headquartered at the 200-year-old Bourbon Orleans Hotel.
This year’s inaugural Overlook festival — which has come to be known as “summer camp for genre fans” — was held in April at the Timberline Hotel in the rather chillier climes of northern Oregon. The exterior of the Timberline doubled as the outside of the Overlook in Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 film adaptation of King’s novel.
Passes for next year’s Overlook Film Festival are now available for purchase at the event’s official website.
