Oregon Scream Week Horror Film Festival Fall 2018 Recap

The second Oregon Scream Week Horror Film Festival Fall 2018 event  was so much fun! Thank you to all that attended Thursday - Saturday October 25-27, 2018 at the Avalon Theatre. 60 short films screened from 11 different  countries and 17 US States from the Film Festival Circuit were. 49 horror screenplays were recognized for outstanding writing. The audience feedback that I received was very positive. There was a good mix of laughs, screams, and people were impressed by the variety of great films in the line-up.
