Hexploitation Film Festival

Hamilton, Canada / February 21-23, 2019 / hexfilmfest.com

Hexploitation, which began life in 2009 as the Fright Night Theatre Film Festival, “pays specific attention to fringe and controversial cinema,” according to a panelist. Here you’ll find world, national, and regional premieres of movies ranging from upscale fare like The Babadook and The Lure to the campy likes of WolfCop and Killer Rack, frequently accompanied by their creators. Director Aaron Allen and his crew also organize one-off showings of cult favorites throughout the year, and host themed parties and other events during the festival: This year, attendees went on a walking tour of the locations used in the heavy metal horror film Black Roses.
