We're back! 

CINEPOCALYPSE, a week of ass-kicking genre movies, is excited to return on June 13th-20th, 2019. Within the confines of the historic Music Box Theatre, fans can expect an unrivaled genre offering of bloody international badassery & terror, world & regional premieres, repertory cinema, special guests, parties, and much more!

As a THANK YOU for our 2018 festivities we're gifting you our next dose of cinematic mayhem at a special holiday rate of just $100 for a full festival badge! 

Featured in Entertainment Weekly, People Magazine, The AV Club, and recently named a top genre festival in the world by MovieMaker Magazine, our 2018 festivities sponsored by IFC Midnight and debuted over 50 films and NINE world premieres including titles from Blumhouse, Orion Pictures, and SYFY. Our jury was presided over by Marvel's DOCTOR STRANGE filmmakers: Director Scott Derrickson and writer C. Robert Cargill. With our ever evolving spotlight on repertory cinema, we featured 35mm screenings of BOUND with Lana Wachowski, TALES FROM THE CRYPT: DEMON KNIGHT & JUICE (both with director/award recipient Ernest Dickerson in attendance), JUDGMENT NIGHT (with director Stephen Hopkins), KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE (with the Chiodo Brothers!), and a 70mm screening of HOWARD THE DUCK (we made it trend on Twitter!)

Since 2014, Cinepocalypse (previously Bruce Campbell’s Horror Film Festival), has terrorized audiences with an annual slate of premiere films, guests, and bloodcurdling entertainment. The festival has recently played host to the likes of: John Carpenter, Lana Wachowski, Fede Alvarez, Eli Roth, Christopher Lloyd, Scott Derrickson, Ernest Dickerson, Fred Dekker, Tom Holland, Larry Cohen, Barbara Crampton, Stephen Hopkins, William Sadler, Stephen Lang, Eric Roberts, comedian Doug Benson, and many other talented filmmakers from around the globe.
