We’re going back to the Overlook Hotel!

Okay fine, it’s technically one of the three “Overlook Hotels” related to Stephen King’s classic novel, The Shining, but for our money it’s the coolest due largely to the Stanley Film Fest. This year’s fest will be its third incarnation after debuting in 2013. We attended and loved that inaugural weekend, and while we missed last year’s festivities their latest announcement has us excited to return to Estes, CO later this month.

The lineup includes twenty feature films consisting of festival favorites (The Final Girls, The Treatment, The Invitation, Deathgasm and We Are Still Here to name a few) and three world premieres (Sun Choke, Some Kind of Hate and the highly intriguing-sounding Director’s Commentary: The Terror of Frankenstein). They’re also screening five older films including the likes of David Cronenberg’s Shivers, Roman Polanski’s Repulsion and the eternally awesome Re-Animator which will be playing in honor of this year’s Stanley Film Fest Master of Horror inductee, Stuart Gordon. The director will be on-hand for the 30th anniversary screening and a conversation with Mick Garris.

Stanley Film Fest 2015 runs April 30th to May 3rd. The full lineup – as of now anyway as we’re expecting some last minute reveals – is below.
