Montreal Comiccon HorrorFest: First Wave Of Fright Films

my fair zombie poster

Last year was our first year attending the Montreal Comiccon and we had a fantastic experience. Among the various cosplay costumes and vendor booths, there were a ton of signing opportunities and a number of panels and screenings to see. Some of our favorite moments include meeting and interviewing Tom Savini, Lloyd Kaufman, Jacob‘s Larry Carrell (and a few others from the cast), and so much more.

This year we’re looking forward to possibly chatting with Kaufman again, meeting/chatting with the Ladies of Evil Dead and Lollipop Chainsaw‘s Jessica Nigri.

Last year’s Montreal Comiccon was also the first year that the Montreal HorrorFest made an appearance. As a bunch of horror hounds here at Yell! Magazine, we’re stoked that it’s back again this year. The first wave of feature films to be screened have been revealed, and we have to say they look freakin’ fabulous.

Below, you can check out the trailers and details for the Montreal Comiccon HorrorFest feature films. Enjoy and let us know what looks the most appealing to you. Personally, Found looks very, very, very interesting — even if there’s stiff competition from Henry Rollins and zombies.
