Oct. 26, 2012 - PRLog -- San Diego continues to show a growing thirst for hunger as it welcomes Horrible Imaginings Film Festival back for its third and biggest year yet! The event that inspired the 10th Avenue Theatre and Arts Centre to dedicate an entire month of its programming to horror-related content will once again grace the haunted halls on Saturday, November 10th and Sunday, November 11th to thrill captive audiences with no less than seven features and 43 short horror films! Once again the event is presented by Monster Island Resort Podcast host Miguel Rodriguez, who has made it his mission to give the horror genre its deserved due as a viable art form. "My mission is about opening a conversation and realizing that we have these dark parts," he told NPR in an interview on October 17th, "And it helps us become better people because we are able to recognize that, not be in denial about it, and fix ourselves accordingly."

Once again, Horrible Imaginings is bringing back two horror classics to join the program of exciting new independent filmmakers!
