Last July, the New York City Horror Film Festival was dealt
a tragic blow when Michael J. Hein, its founder and director, died suddenly at
age 41. Now, his legacy lives on as the fest’s 2012 incarnation is ready to
roar and offer a heavy lineup of feature and short horrors, plus a pair of
horrific honorees. Read on for the full, updated schedule.
Hein’s family and a group of past collaborators
(including—full disclosure—yours truly) have selected an eclectic group of superior
independent chillers to be shown at the Tribeca Cinemas (54 Varick Street),
Thursday-Sunday, November 8-11; in addition, Wes Craven and Rob Zombie will
appear to receive special-achievement awards, and each will screen one of their
movies (to be announced). An opening-night party will take place Wednesday
night, November 7 at Times Scare (8th Avenue at 42nd Street) starting at 7:30
p.m. Below is the final schedule for the movie programming blocks and other
