The Salt City Horror Festival keeps getting better and better. We attended the horror film festival years ago, when just a handful of movies screened. Now, they have a lineup that features ten horror films all being shown from 35mm prints, including the original 13 Ghosts, Sleepaway Camp, Pumpkinhead, and more.

Event Details: The event will take place on April 19th at The Palace Theater in Syracuse, New York (2384 James St, Syracuse, NY 13206). Doors open at 11:00am and the first film screens at noon. Alcohol is being served to those 21 years of age and older, and the lobby will be filled with vendors and "a number of surprises."
