Five years ago, Chris Hallock and I set out to bring some of the best new unreleased horror films to the city of Boston on a monthly basis. We combed festivals, news sites, reviews-anywhere and everywhere we could in order to find a way to show these films way before they got any sort of release. Though our fingers cramped from typing email after email and press release after press release, All Things Horror Presents has turned in to my favorite night each month. Aside from getting to work with some amazingly talented people, we’ve been able to bring in films like American Mary, Absentia, Dawning, The Battery, The Corridor, Ashes, The Taint, Dear God No, Dead Hooker In A Trunk, Long Pigs, Mon Ami Found, among so many others. We’ve been lucky enough to partner with the Etheria Film organization to showcase emerging women filmmakers. 
Now, All Things Horror is celebrating five years of screening independent horror, grindhouse, cult, science fiction and splatter films at the Somerville Theater with our biggest and best event ever: the inaugural Boston Horror Show. 
SPRING (Dir. Justin Benson & Aaron Moorhead) Boston Area Premiere. From Drafthouse Films, The directing team follows up on Resolution with this breathtakingly gorgeous new film. When a young man (Lou Taylor Pucci, Evil Dead) flees America after his mother’s death and a bar fight, he finds love with a mysterious and beautiful young woman (Nadia Hilker). What he has no way of knowing is the love of his life harbors a monstrous secret.  Spring will be copresented with our good friends from the Boston Underground Film Festival. 
Spring was the recipient of the Best Picture Award at the 2014 Paris International Fantastic Film Festival and special mention at the prestigious Stiges Film Festival. 
Benson & Moorhead have been named two of ten directors to watch for in 2015 by Variety while also being recipients of the 2014 Vanguard at the Toronto International Film Fest.
THE SINS OF DRACULA (Dir. Richard Marr Griffin) Boston Premiere. A tongue-in-cheek tale that satirizes the Christian scare films of the 70s and 80s, The Sins of Dracula is a story of sex, sacrilege, and sin. It’s a world where Sondheim is Satan, Broadway means blasphemy, and where taking the stage just might mean curtains…for your eternal soul. 
THE BATTERY (dir. Jeremy Gardner) A return engagement of one of our most popular screenings and a unique take on the zombie subgenre. The personalities of two former baseball players clash as they traverse the rural back roads of a post-plague New England teeming with the undead. This is one of the best reviewed and most celebrated low budget genre films of the past few years and proof that million dollar ideas don’t need million dollar budgets to kick ass
SHORTS BLOCK From the horrific to hilarious to heartbreaking, we’re lining up some of the best short horror films from all over the globe for this block. Details and line up to follow.  
TBA We have one more film slot to fill, and fill it we will. More details SOON.
