Panic Fest Presents: TRICKS AND TREATS, A Special Virtual Halloween Celebration!

Trick or Treaters. Candy bingeing. Horror marathons. Pumpkin carving. Costume contests. Even though this Halloween turned out to be more gnarly than Regan projectile vomiting green pea soup, that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate the best time of the year together! Panic Fest won’t let Halloween die! Panic Fest Presents: TRICKS AND TREATS, a special virtual Halloween celebration that runs October 30 through November 1. The three-day event features films, short film blocks, and live events. Best of all, you, the horror community, get to participate with one another throughout the weekend.

Panic Fest Presents: TRICKS AND TREATS

We are excited to continue our partnership with IFC Films and IFC Midnight, bringing you three brand-new horror films; Kindred, Hunter Hunter, and The Vigil. The lineup includes 13 feature films and over 25 shorts for you to sink your teeth into. In addition to the films, we have curated a selection of special programming including a horror-themed debate between podcasts Nightmare Junkhead and FrightDay, an hourlong nostalgic Halloween special from Forever Bogus, The Final Girls: A Conversation with Women in Horror hosted by Fangoria, and so much more.

Finally, it isn’t Halloween without some games is it? We are hosting live trivia, bingo, Twitch game streams, happy hours, and more throughout the weekend. Panic Fest enters its ninth year and has been recognized for three years running as one of the top 25 best genre festivals in the world by MovieMaker Magazine.
