While there are many genre festivals throughout the world that showcase some of the best in horror, sci-fi, and suspense, there aren’t many others as uniquely Canadian as Blood in the Snow.
Now in its second year under the guidance of chief programmer and founder Kelly Michael Stewart, the festival of all things spooky, gory, terrifying, and creepy from the Great White North, moves to The Carlton from November 29th through December 1st.
With seven features – almost all of which are preceded by a short – and a shorts package so successful in advance ticket sales that a second screening had to be added, there’s no shortage of options to get people warmed up over the chilly upcoming weekend.
In addition to the film line-up, there will also be a vendor area set up in the lobby of the Carlton every day (with no ticket required for admission) where sponsors, studios, distributors, outfitters, charities, bakers, and more can get together in celebration of some of the most up and coming names in Canadian horror.
For a full list of films, events, vendors, showtimes, and ticketing information, please visit the Blood in the Snow website. But for some reviews of a few of this year’s offerings, you’ve come to the right place. Dig right into our Blood in the Snow coverage, and be sure to join us on the closing night of the festival as we co-sponsor this year’s screening of the period piece throwback DISCOPATH on Sunday, December 1st at 7:00pm, presented by Dork Shelf’s own Kirk Haviland (who also did some work on this year’s festival).
