Telluride has made a name for itself with its annual summer film festival. But each October, during the Telluride Horror Show, the scariest films in the industry steal the spotlight.

The Telluride Horror Show, Colorado’s first and longest-running horror film festival, returns October 13th to October 15th for its 8th season. For three days, film fans will experience the latest horror, fantasy, and sci-fi films in Telluride’s historic Sheridan Opera House, Nugget Theatre, and Palm theater.

Films run constantly throughout the weekend, which averages 20 feature films, more than 30 short films, and several animated films. Though this festival is a bit on the down-low, it’s been named one of the “20 Coolest Film Festivals” by Moviemaker Magazine.

Festivities start Friday afternoon with an ice cream social, creepy campfire tales, and a killer karaoke party. Saturday’s events include a book signing and a pig roast, while Sunday offers horror trivia and a closing party. Several Q & A sessions with directors, casts, and crews of featured films are also scheduled Friday and Saturday.
