New York’s top horror festival—bringing you the genre’s best from around the globe—is back for another wicked week of hair-raising premieres and rediscoveries, guest appearances and giveaways. The 11th edition launches off with the delightful yet blood-soaked holiday-set high-school musical Anna and the Apocalypse, followed by a Zombie Christmas Party, before turning darker with another yuletide end-of-days offering, Await Further Instructions. This year’s lineup also includes a trio of creepy Latin American offerings featuring possessions, dark fairy tales, and haunted hospitals; a selection of new indie horror at its most promising, Hurt, Boogeyman Pop, Blood Paradise, and The Witch in the Window; the retrospective sidebar “Tainted Waters,” featuring a quartet of 35mm titles whose horrors take place above or below the surface, or sometimes come creeping onto the land; and a brand new live edition of Glass Eye Pix’s acclaimed radio-play series Tales from Beyond the Pale, brought to you by the dynamic duo of Glenn McQuaid and Larry Fessenden. Plus, last year’s fast-working closing-night director Colin Minihan returns with What Keeps You Alive, and we conclude with Jonas Åkerlund’s harrowing black-metal tragedy Lords of Chaos. Programmed by Laura Kern and Rufus de Rham. Sponsored by IFC Midnight.

This historically sold out event attracts thousands of time travelers each year, who come together to discover the music and zeitgeist of the 1920s. Consistently selected by the New York Times as one of the year’s most memorable events, Jazz Age Lawn Party offers the unique, interactive opportunity to relive one of the most colorful and formative epochs in American history.
