Sacramento Horror Film Festival
Friday, September 29 and Saturday, September 30, 4 p.m. and 2 p.m., The Colonial Theatre, $20-$25
Audiences beware: This film festival is not for the faint of heart. The annual Sacramento Horror Film Festival returns for its 11th year of delivering thrills to a horror-loving audience. Films range from very short—some less than five minutes—to full-length features, all with nightmarish qualities guaranteed to make you scream. Or at least squirm a little. Enjoy live burlesque and other performances between the films. When else can Sacramento’s horror geeks spend two days on the edge of their seats, their sweaty hands gripping popcorn as blood and gore flash on the big screen? 3522 Stockton Boulevard, www.sachorrorfilmfest.com.
