The fifth annual NYC Horror Fest takes place from October 18th-22nd at the Tribeca Cinemas, 54 Varick [Canal]. This year's lineup includes the world premiere of Tobe Hooper's Dance of the Dead, Last Rites of the Dead, and a screening of George Romero's Dawn of the Dead, with star Ken Foree on hand for a post-screening Q & A.

The Bram Stoker Awards honor achievement in the horror genre. It was a tie for best novel: Creepers by David Morrell and Dread in the Beast by Charlee Jacob. The first novel award went to Scarecrow Gods by Weston Ochse.

Now through October 29th at St. Ann's Warehouse in Dumbo, a house of horrors that's emphatically not for kids called Hell House. It's been created by Les Freres Corbusier troupe using the script that Evangelical churches across the country use. What that means, predictably, is that Harry Potter, gay men, and high-school cheerleaders getting an abortion are held up as the ultimate societal evils. To us, it makes a persuasive case for the city seceding from the country.

At the Pioneer Theater, October is 'A Month of Horror, Terror, andGeneral Mayhem.' Notable: The Murder Clinic from 1971 in which a hooded slasher stalks a clinic for the deaf and mute; Blood Tea and Red String, a dark fairy tale using stop-motion animation; and Roger Corman's The Haunted Palace starring Vincent Price.
