About John

The International Horror Film Festival is a world class event honoring the best in American and international horror filmmaking. The festival will be held October 21-27, 2016 at Cinema Village, located in NYC's Greenwich Village. The IHFF will bring the horror community together for a series of screenings, Q&As, appearances, special events and an award ceremony. Selected films will be screened alongside some of the most iconic horror movies of all time.

As part of this year's festival, we will be honoring the legacy of horror icon Wes Craven (A Nightmare on Elm Street, Scream, The Last House on the Left), who passed away in 2015, featuring a special appearance by Mr. Craven’s widow, Iya Labunka. The festival will also feature the NY premiere of The Butcher Brothers' A Beginner's Guide to Snuff and a reunion of cast members from The Monster Squad.
