During the festival we are showing both the newest horror films and the horror classics of old. We also hold the Star Master-class featuring some of the greatest horror masters of Russia and all over the world. The Award Ceremony includes three cathegories of awards:
• The Russian distributors for the best Russian and international horror films to get a wide release in Russia (People’s choice)
• The young directors and producers for best pictures competing in the festival ( The New Hope)
• The stars of horror (the Special Achievement Award)
The actual statuette was constantly changing: Before 2016 it was a statue of ghost. Then — a drop of blood. Now — it is a Venous Flytrap.
We had all sorts of international guests to our festivals: Mick Garris, Stuard Gordon, Lloyd Kaufman, Zach Galligan, Ruggero Deodato and many others.
