NYC: The 2017 Brooklyn Horror Film Festival kicks off tonight


The second annual Brooklyn Horror Film Festival gets underway tonight at the Brooklyn Alamo Drafthouse. The opening night film is Can Evernol’s Housewife, which looks like Clive Barker by way of Dario Argento.

More than 45 feature films and shorts will be shown at various venues in Brooklyn, including the Nitehawk Cinema, Videology, Spectacle Theater, and the Wythe Hotel.

Flixist will be on hand at the festival checking out a few of the film. Look for a critic notebook about the festival next week.
