We’re incredibly excited to announce that Bloody Disgusting is sponsoring this year’s Bruce Campbell Horror Film Festival, which returns for its third annual festivities from August 18-21, in conjunction with Wizard World Chicago.
While our top secret surprise screening is to be announced (it’s going to blow you away), today they’ve announced the main line-up that opens with Evil Dead director Fede Alvarez‘s Don’t Breathe (read our review); a salute to genre hero Fred Dekker; an epic event featuring comedian Doug Benson; and my personal favorite, a 25th anniversary celebration of the most excellent sequel, Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey with director Peter Hewitt in attendance! (Additional guests for this screening will be announced at a later date.)
The festivities will kick off on Thursday, August 18, with the opening night film Don’t Breathe, the highly anticipated shocker from director-producer-writer Fede Alvarez (Evil Dead) and produced by Sam Raimi & Rob Tapert. Alvarez will be in attendance. This will reunite Campbell with Alvarez, who directed the successful 2013 remake of Evil Dead. Sony Pictures is set to release Don’t Breathe on August 26.
The inaugural “Groovy as Hell” award will be presented to writer/director Fred Dekker (Fox’s upcoming The Predator). The awards ceremony will consist of a 30th anniversary screening of the cult classic Night of The Creeps and a very special screening of The Monster Squad with actors Andre Gower (Sean) & Ryan Lambert (Rudy) also in attendance.
Festival favorite Doug Benson (Doug Loves Movies, Chromic-Con, Super High Me) will be in town for a very special ‘Doug Benson Movie Interruption’ of Army of Darkness, with guest interrupter Bruce Campbell! The two will sit in the front row together with a selection of mystery comedy guests, and say whatever hilarious stuff that pops into their head. A limited amount of single tickets for this event are on sale now!
