Horror fans at the Telluride Horror Show 2017.

Once upon a Telluride dreary, the streets were filled with gore-hounds and film buffs, not at all weary of watching macabre movies at the Eighth Annual Telluride Horror Show. Lovecraftian monsters, mayhem, and machete-wielding murderers marauded on screen, a horror writer creeped out an entire park, a cake and ice scream social sated a lust for sweets, and a damn fine time was had by psychotronic cinefiles.

Couldn’t make the film fest? For a full list of movies to seek out this Halloween season, hit up https://telluridehorrorshow.wixsite.com/telluridehorror.
