For some of us, Halloween starts the moment the leaves start turning, or the moment we check off Sept. 30 on the calendar (whichever comes first). But now it’s officially and unquestionably Halloween, or Halloween-enough to really get into the mood and scare yourself silly. To help you toward that end, the Independent Film Society of Southern Colorado is back with its annual horror film festival, screening eight films over three nights (plus some as-yet-unannounced indie horror shorts). Oct. 25 will be ‘80s night (Child’s Play, Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors), with zombie night on Oct. 26 (Army of Darkness, Zombieland, The Return of the Living Dead) and horror classics on Oct. 27 (Frankenstein, Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein, The Screaming Skull). A special bonus on zombie night: Blissfest333, a Denver group named for its annual arts and culture festival, will host a Zombie Festival and Crawl right outside the Tim Gill Center. Before any screenings start, check out makeup demos and contests, and congregate with other horror enthusiasts for the zombie crawl at 7 p.m. All events are free. All IFSOC asks is that you drink up, as all proceeds from booze sales go directly back into their programming.
