“Ah, we may have to be virtual this year but just like Cecil B DeMented’s ‘Sprocket Hole’ fans, we’ll continue celebrating the Salem Horror Fest’s vision of rebel cinematic mayhem. Who needs Halloween when the whole world is screaming anyway? What we need is movies-insane ones,” John Waters expressed in anticipation. A limited number of fans will have the exclusive opportunity to interact with John Waters in a private recorded Zoom meeting and receive an autographed CECIL B DEMENTED poster as part of the VIP package.
The event is part of a month-long virtual program of premieres, retrospectives, panels, lectures, podcasts and more with special guests that have included Joe Dante, Dee Wallace, Zach Galligan, Robert Picardo, Emily Perkins, CJ Graham, Tom McLoughlin, Lisa Wilcox, Tuesday Knight and Toy Newkirk.

Watch a Clip and Trailer from MURDER BURY WIN: "Three friends have created a board game, MURDER BURY WIN, and they think it has what it takes to become a bestseller on the indie charts. When their attempt to crowdfund fails, a mysterious man makes them an offer: he will publish their game on the condition that he takes credit as the sole creator and owner.
After a dispute over the gaming rights leaves them with a body on their hands, the young men realize how suspiciously like murder the freak accident appears. Now, with few options remaining, they look to their game for guidance. The premise of their game? How to murder someone and get rid of the body."
