Montreal Horrorfest 2014

As usual, Fangoria was first to report the first wave of programming for the third annual Montreal HorrorFest, which runs from September 12 until September 14, 2014 at the Palais des congrès. That’s right! It lines up perfectly with the Montreal Comiccon, nothing really new here. If you decide to skip parts of the comic book convention, you’ve got plenty to see at HorrorFest.

So, brace yourself for another great selection of horror movies that should keep you on the edge of your seat like previous years. From what we know, the Montreal HorrorFest will also feature a few Canadian premieres too. You can be first to see Lost after Dark, Queen of Blood, Dark Awakening and House of Last Things, including the Montreal premiere of Radio Silence.
