Oshkosh Horror Film Festival 2011

Well, here we are again.  That time of year are upon us.  This year we have 2 (!!!) films playing at John Pata’s (Better off Undead, Dead  Weight) horror film festival in Oshosh Wisconsin.  We’ll post pictures and possibly video from it.  Here is the info if you are in WI and can make it.


Ladies and gents, it’s back! The Oshkosh Horror Film Festival will return to the Time Community Theater in Downtown Oshkosh on Saturday, October 22, 2011. The objective of the OHFF is simple: showcase Wisconsin made independent horror. Both feature length and short films will be shown, all films being made right here in Wisconsin. There will be no awards for the films and no contests held. The OHFF is a clear cut event to do nothing more than celebrate Wisconsin horror.

Throughout the day will be various giveaways and raffles, and the filmmakers will be on hand to field a Q&A after their films.

Admission to the OHFF is only 5 bucks, come and go as you please. The event is 17+, IDs are required if requested. No ID = No Admittance. Anyone under 17 will be admitted with parental consent. All proceeds raised benefit the non-profit Time Community Theater.

Times and guests are subject to change.

Screaming In High Heels: The Rise and Fall of the Scream Queen Era (WI Premiere) – During the video boom of the 1980s, three ladies (and a small group of energetic filmmakers) headlined upwards of 10 low-budget horror films per year, fending off men in rubber monster suits, pubescent teen boys, and deadly showers. As a result of their unintended cult fame, they were flown all over the world, dined with President Regan, and built mini-empires of their own. Then it all came crashing down. This documentary follows these accidental actresses on how smart they were to play stupid.

Demon’s Lute – Satan, in the form of a guitar, possess a rocker and makes him kill his bandmates!

Blood Junkie – A 1980’s style horror comedy about a group of kids that discover a mysterious abandoned building where bad things happen. Shot in Wisconsin for $7,000, Blood Junkie is a refreshing new vision in DIY independent filmmkaing from first time feature filmmaker Drew Rosas.

Flesh-Eating Fog – A strange fog is on the loose in Wisconsin.

The Amateur Monster Movie – After his best friend is killed on a camp-out at Cadaverous Island, Walter Romero sets out to find what did it, enlisting the help of pothead, Johnny Mason, to get his friend, Ashley, high enough to let them use her dad’s boat.

Hollow – Two boys make a disturbing discovery.

I Didn’t Come Here To Die (WI Premiere) – The story of six young volunteers working on a humanitarian project in the remote wilderness. Horrific accidents, rash decisions and the unpredictability of human nature leads them all to the same disturbing conclusion… Volunteer work can be killer.

An Outbreak at Meadowbrook Park (World Premiere) – Joe and Alicia are in the process of getting their engagement pictures taken at the beautiful Meadowbrook Park when they begin to notice strange and unusual behavior among the other people visiting the park. It’s not long before the behavior turns violent and the couple and their photograhper find themselves fighting for their lives at the onset of a zombie outbreak.

Swamphead (World Premiere)- An ancient relic is found at the bottom of a local lake which resurrects the severed head of Robert Gross, aka Swamphead. A group of hapless teens come across the relic and thir weekend camping trip becomes a nightmare of blood, feces, and more head than a night in Tijuana. Can they destroy the zombie head or will they die trying?

Mediatrix (WI Premiere)- Mary Ann Van Hook, false spiritualist, takes her direction directly from the Virgin Mary in her quest to destroy the man who once did her wrong.
