Brooklyn Horror Film Fest Announces 2021 List



The Brooklyn Horror Film Festival is back! The prestigious genre film festival returns to North Brooklyn from October 14-21, 2021. It features an exceptional lineup of phenomenal premieres, dazzling short films and special presentations.

Here’s what to expect from the festival:

The festival will present 14 feature films and six short blocks. Brooklyn Horror Film Fest opens with South African film by Jenna Cato Bass Good Madam (Mlungu Wam) and ends with Rob Jabbaz’s heartbreaking tawainese zombie movie Sadness. Both have already made their mark in the festival space, which means that they will be a sensation in Brooklyn.

The flagship film, that of Lucile Hadžihalilović Ear piercing, follows a young girl with ice teeth. Yes, you read that right. They will also screen Gasper Noe’s 2019 50-minute film, Lux Aeterna, which is sure to be both smelly and spectacular at the same time.

Two films will be presented in world premiere at the festival: that of Alfonso Cortés-Cavanillas Ego and that of Adam Randall Night teeth. Ego is described as a “COVID-defined psychological doppelganger cyber-thriller” where a woman makes a rather disturbing discovery on a dating site. Night teeth stars the Queen herself Megan Fox, as well as Sydney Sweeney from Euphoria Fame. In the film, a college student is sucked into – a pun – a world of high society vampires in Los Angeles.

Their block of shorts features a wide range of exceptional talent, including an LGBTQ + block of shorts featured with NewFest. Brooklyn Horror Film Fest will also host presentations from the 20th anniversary of Session 9 and Problems every day.

Check out the full schedule of events on the Brooklyn Horror Film Fest website.

In addition to the film festival in person, the Brooklyn Horror Film Festival is once again collaborating with the Boston Underground Film Festival, North Bend Film Festival and Overlook Film Festival for the virtual-only event NIGHTSTREAM, which runs October 7-13. 2021.

Screenings for the Brooklyn Horror Film Festival will take place at the Nitehawk Cinema Williamsburg, Williamsburg Cinemas and Stuart Cinema. Festival badges are currently on sale. Individual tickets can be purchased starting Thursday, September 23 at 5 p.m. EST. As part of their commitment to ensuring the health and safety of festival-goers, all screenings require full proof of vaccination and valid identification.
