The King Records music label is again taking a step into the movie business with this terrifying festival, labelled 'Hidden Treasures of Horror'. In addition to screening a handful of scary flicks never before seen on these shores, the 2017 edition shines the spotlight on two cult directors: Halloween creator John Carpenter and Herschell Gordon Lewis, father of the splatter sub-genre and director of ridiculously bloody fare like The Gruesome Twosome (1967) and The Wizard of Gore (1970). You'll also get screenings of genre classics like Hellraiser 2 (1982) and The Howling (1981), plus talks and other events with special guests.
The full schedule and other details can be viewed here. Please note that all films will be shown with Japanese subtitles only.
