Pretty scary, eh kids? It Came From Schenectady Presents Halloween Horrors

    This will be my first attendance at your annual film festival !
    Especially looking forward to ‘Yoroi Samuraii Vampire’ and
    ‘Vampire Girl Vs Frankenstein Girl’ !

    I do have a suggestion for another type of film festival !
    There are four independant filmmakers out of the New York
    area that have been working consistently in the horror gendre
    since the late sixties:

    Joe Bagnardi (JB Productions) – ‘Shadow Tracker – Vampire Hunter’ –
    ‘The Edge of Reality’ – in production – ‘Resurrection’.

    Bruce G. Hallenbeck (Pagean Productiona) – ‘Vampyr’ …. ‘The Drowning’ …..
    ‘ London After Midnight’

    Jeff Kirkendal (Very Scary Productions) – ‘The Temptress’ …. other shorts

    just an idea my friends! see u at Proctors ! Ed … aka … Dread Runner

    Edward – We featured films by Bruce and Jeff at a previous fest. I believe we may have also screened Joe’s Shadow Tracker, though I can’t swear to that.

    Also, it would be noted that two to the TBD slots have now been determined. At 10pm in block 2 we have the New York premiere of MUST LOVE DEATH. And at 4am in block 3 we have the New York premiere of ABLE. Both are English language films from Germany, and both have been getting rave reviews at other festivals.
