2016 Year in Review Fall Part 1

2016 Year in Review Fall

Of course, reviews are featured but they are blended in with everything. The theme of FIRSTS sum up the beginning, middle and end of my year, as you will see. Enjoy my year of 2016 in the Michigan Geek Scene.

Freakshow Film Festival

Fresh off winning Best Short Film at this year’s Scarefest Film Festival in Lexington, we’re bringing our film back home to the historic Eaton Theatres in Charlotte for some Halloween fun.

Come just outside Lansing to start the night with the Michigan Nordic Fire Festival, after which the Fine Freakshow Folks are following The Third Day with (of course) the original Halloween. But Wait, there’s MORE! Cast and Crew we will be attending the After Party right downtown at The Hall, where pizza and beer will be accompanied by a (likely) all-too-honest Q&A. Looks like we’ll be signing posters and some brand-spankin’ new DVDs! Hope to see you all there!

$5 gets you all the fun!
