All Things Horror, a blog you should be reading, has unveiled the schedule for their upcoming Shudder Fest film festival in Somerville, Massachusetts (October 14 & 15).

This year’s festival will feature two nights of double features, all of which come highly recommended (or at least anticipated) by UTG.

Checkout the full press release, which includes a rundown of the films, after the jump. If you can only see one, we pick I Didn’t Come Here To Die.

(Boston, MA) ALL THINGS HORROR ONLINE is thrilled to announce a two night movie extravaganza that will save horror loving social malcontents and shut-ins the indignity of being stuck with SyFY Channel Original Films and edited for television SAW marathons this Halloween season.

Friday October 14th and Saturday October 15th at the Somerville Theater (55 Davis Sq. Somerville MA) we’re bringing genre fans two nights of double features and a full slate of short films. Our quartet of features represents the best of what the world of independent horror has to offer.

Fresh off its victory for Best Screenplay at Fantastic Fest, THE CORRIDOR (imdb) returns to Massachusetts with a tale about a group of friends travel to a cabin in the woods only to stumble onto something other worldly.

ABSENTIA finds a woman and her sister linking her husband’s disappearance to a strange tunnel at the end of her block. Dripping with atmosphere, ABSENTIA often feels like ALIEN set in suburban Los Angeles.

Splatter filled horror comedy hybrid I DIDN’T COME HERE TO DIE (imdb) has been hailed as “The Best Horror Film since Sam Raimi unleashed The Evil Dead upon the world” (Bloody-Disgusting) .

Shudder Fest marks the Boston debut of ASHES (imdb). Elias Matar’s debut feature examines an obsessive doctor whose quest to cure AIDS triggers a response that destroys the body and enrages the mind.

As part of Friday’s programming, we’re turning the short film spotlight onto Devi Snively and Deviant pictures. In 2007 Ms. Snively was one of eight participants chosen to take part in the prestigious AFI Directing Workshop For Women. Her films are noted for their whimsical take on horror and visual style that evokes memories of the four color heyday of EC Comics. Films screening include Last Seen On Dolores Street, Death in Charge, Teenage Bikini Vampire, Confederate Zombie Massacre, Raven Gets A Life and I Spit on Eli Roth.

Tickets are available for individual films ($8 in advance online, $10 cash only at the door). Discounted double feature of all-film passes are also available. For more details, trailers and screening schedule visit our site.
