The 48 Hour Film HORROR Project is just the surface of this project. Underneath, filmmakers have 48 hours to create a short horror film that also fits the genre they draw at the begining of their filmmaking weekend. Add  to the cauldron a character, prop, and line of dialogue to be included. A bit of hocus pocus focusing, and some blood, sweat, and tears, they'll have a completed film.  We'll show all those shorts in one screening.  Don't miss out on a horrific showing of the area's best film talent.
