horrorrants-film-festival

Horrorant Film Festival “FRIGHT NIGHTS”, one of the fastest up and coming genre film festival in Europe, celebrates its five years and is ready to offer to the Greek audience its most complete and diverse lineup of its history.

From May 3 to 9, 25 movies from all around the world will premiere in Athens and compete for this year’s Horrorant awards.

The steadily rising film industry of North America bore some exceptional fruits this year, making our choices tough, and with a final list of nine movies coming from that part of the planet, it seems that Spain’s crown will be seriously questioned.

Here is the list of the 25 movies that will be screened in the International Competition section:
