LIVE PRESENTATION WITH MICK GARRIS: Mick Garris has one of the most impressive writing and directing careers in horror history. He wrote for shows like Amazing Stories, created The Masters of Horror series, and wrote or directed more Stephen King adaptations than any other filmmaker, including THE STAND, SLEEPWALKERS, and RIDING THE BULLET.
THE FUNERAL: Horror films from China are a rare treat! Don’t miss the WORLD PREMIERE of this creepy, atmospheric, and slightly Lovecraftian horror film. Zhong Tonghiu, a young model, has recurring nightmares of her mother who committed suicide when she was a child. An unexpected invitation to the funeral of her wealthy and childless aunt connects her with a young man, Li Baile, and results in strange and unexplained occurrences. Q&A with actress Kunjue Li (Zhong Tonghiu).
