In the news

Join the Death's Parade Film Fest for a LIVE short film screening!

On Thursday, April 8th, the Death's Parade Film Fest's Grim and Bloody Theater will present a number of horror shorts for your entertainment live on Youtube.  We will sit down and enjoy the fun together! During the broadcast filmmakers representing the shorts will come on to discuss their work and possibly field questions. This is a free show for everyone.

Attention filmmakers -want to be part of the show? We're looking for horror and suspense films that are less than 15 minutes in length and weave a compelling story. English speaking, or with English subtitles. The work must be completed and polished, but can be restricted to general audiences (meaning it's not public facing yet).  Films can be from any year. Selected films will be screen shared with the hosts via Zoom, and streamed through the festival's Youtube channel. The films will be set to private, then deleted after screening.  Submissions are free. Send us as many films as you would like to  -  use the subject line Screening Party and provide a downloadable link to the film.  Selectees will be notified March 18th. No extreme violence or gratuitous nudity please.

Submit your film today!

Join Al Omega, Joe Flynn, and Anthony DeRouen as they discuss what made Thirteen Ghosts a stand out movie among a slate of commercially successful titles under Dark Castle Entertainment's belt, aspects that could have lifted its narrative further, and why Steve Beck's follow up effort Ghost Ship was equally as enjoyable.
