What is the most frightening thing about Brooklyn (aside from how much it costs to rent a studio apartment in Williamsburg these days)? That would be the always entertaining — and chilling! — Brooklyn Horror Film Festival, which this year takes place from Oct. 11-18. The event just revealed its second wave of announcements and additions to the schedule include The Clovehitch Killer — which stars Dylan McDermott as a father who may also be the titular murderer — and Starfish, about a grief-stricken woman who must save the world by using clues found on her dead friend’s mixtapes. The 2018 lineup also boasts a block of queer films titled Slayed: LGBT Horror Shorts and a drinking game-night which will feature a special (and one imagines highly raucous) screening of the classic zombie horror-comedy, Return of the Living Dead. Previously announced films included the anthology movie Field Guide to Evil and the Monster Squad documentary Wolfman’s Got Nards.
