The Brooklyn Horror Film Festival (BHFF) runs from October 11th through 18th, and will feature films from around the world. This year the fest is introducing its Head Trip block, which will spotlight films that push the boundaries and expectations of the horror genre as part of the fest’s most expansive and diverse curation yet.

BHFF senior programmer, Matt Barone commented:

It’s an amazing time to love horror, with the genre being as diverse and challenging as it’s ever been, and our programming this year exemplifies the best of where the genre is currently at as well as the daring new directions in which it’s heading. Our mission remains to buck the genre’s conventions with forward-thinking films. Ranging from Knife + Heart’s modernization of classic slasher vibes to Luz’s reinvention of exorcism tropes, not to mention Tower. A Bright Day’s singular approach to the occult and The Cannibal Club’s melding of gore and social commentary, our biggest lineup yet represents horror at its boldest.

This years decadent and deadly poster is designed by New York-based creative duo Kelsey and Rémy Bennett (aka, The Bennett Sisters). About the design, the sisters said:

The photo stories we created for the poster design are an ode to the 1970s golden age of horror, inspired particularly by the 1973 Brian De Palma New York set psycho sexually voyerurist exploitation film Sisters, which starred the recently deceased actress Margot Kidder, an icon of ‘70s slasher genre.
