Sundance is currently going on till the 27th and this year it has quite a large showing for horror films. Like many of you I do not go to Sundance with the main reason being I simply can not afford it and I am a nobody amongst the press elite.
Worth noting however I am a fan just like you and happy to live on the press fringes reporting on things when and how I want. Jason from Sundance took the time to email us a list of what is happening with Sundance this year specifically with our favorite genre horror.
This year Sundance has a very impressive line up of films as usual and the horror titles are of particular interest. Below you can checkout some details on the lineup. Share with me in the comments which you are most excited for.
