We're coming back to Red Bluff California!

 The Death's Parade Film Fest is happening again at the Prime Cinemas in Red Bluff, California. We're bringing horror, thriller and suspense to Shasta and Tehama County! Enjoy a full day of exclusive independent short and feature films in October. That's right, we're shuffling into the Halloween season. You can expect the return of the Grim and Bloody Podcast and more.

Attention filmmakers - submit your films on Filmfreeway.


In 2022 we had an outstanding time with the attending filmmakers. We look forward to meet new faces this year. As always, it is our goal to provide you, the filmmaker, a dark and brooding platform to display your talents within the horror, suspense and thriller genre.


The Death's Parade Film Festival will carefully select the best of the best in regards to horror shorts, features, and animations to present to our audience.

The festival will feature short films and feature films from around the world, with an emphasis on paranormal, psychological and body horror, found footage, experimental, killers, monsters, zombies, gore, and dark comedy. 

While some festivals market themselves as an entertainment destination we will not dilute the festival experience with trashy live performances or cringy stage exhibitions. You are there to watch movies and that's what you'll get! We are here to promote you, the filmmaker, above all else.
