The FANGORIA Guide to Mile High Horror Film Festival 2015!

,,

With one week before Mile High Horror Film Festival kicks into full-gear, horror hounds making the pilgrimage to Denver, Colorado for October’s first fright fest have to make some tough decisions about what creepshows are worth catching. After all, making the call between a much-buzzed-about festival favorite and a tried-and-true genre gem is never easy. Luckily, FANGORIA is here to help Mile High attendees sort through the many macabre movies at the 2015 installment of the festival based on their specific twisted tastes…
