We all go a little mad sometimes. And now horror film fanatics really have something to go crazy about.
A new movie festival, FEARnyc, kicks off Friday and runs through Oct. 27, bringing more than 65 screenings of new and classic horror films to scary movie lovers at Cinema Village on East 12th Street in Greenwich Village.
From classics like "Psycho," "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" and "Nightmare on Elm Street" to new movies including "Dead Awake," the new film from "Final Destination" creator Jeffrey Reddick and Gedeon Burkhard's "The Key," the fear-inspiring festival will have a flick for every horror aficionado.
There are some fun events, too: a screening of "The Exorcist" will begin with a seance led by a renowned psychic, and a screening of the original "Halloween" will kick off with a party featuring candy bags and games for the audience.
FEARnyc will also hold an award ceremony honoring the year's best horror films with a special tribute to icon Wes Craven to be attended by members of his family and cast members who starred in his myriad films.
Tickets ($12 general admission, $8 seniors) are available on FEARnyc.com. A limited number of Festival Passes, which include admission to every screening in the festival as well as the award ceremony, are available for $125.
