Celebrate Shocktober at Bushwick Film Festival

Who’s ready for a terrifying Shocktober? Just in time for Halloween season, The Bushwick Film Festival will be screening some chilling movies. Its official selection includes potential cult shocker Old 37 by director Paul Travers, the story of two brothers who intercept 911 calls in a beaten up ambulance to torture and kill their victims. Following the screening will be a talkback with the cast and crew, including lead actress Brandi Cyrus (Miley Cyrus’ sister).

Tickets here: 2015-09-24 01.57.44

Another fantastic frightening pick is Altered Minds from Michael Wechsler. Find out what happens when a horror writer hijacks his dying father’s birthday party in a desperate attempt to unearth family secrets from his father’s time as a CIA psychiatrist. Find out more:
